Chiadoas re-emerged from the ashes of the big fire in 1988 after about 10 years. All the investment made in the renewing of this area, conciliating elegance of the past with the modern needs of comfort and design made this the most appreciated and expensive neighborhood of central Lisbon.
Chiadois considered the most beautiful area of historic Lisbon. It was a place of residence of the Portuguese royalty and of the political and cultural elites. Nearby are located the theatreS. Luisand the operaS. Carlos. A little further isCamõessquare (Praça de Camões), next toBairro Alto, picturesque but raffish. Part of Lisbon's nightlife is concentrated in this quarter, where you can hear 'fados' being sung in some restaurants and cafés.ChiadoandBairro Altoare where locals and tourists meet, with elegant hotels, old cafés and the best international fashion shops.

"A good central city flat - few minor problems."
Left on 05/26/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 26, 2012Stayed Apr 2012
Flat was absolutely fine (if noisy!) - chest of drawers was broken, but otherwise good. Only strange thing was on our form it said there would be a bottle of welcome wine - there was none. Plus one of the keys didn't work so we effectively only had one set. However, helpful chap at the beginning and well placed flat to walk everywhere.
Flat was clean and pretty.
Would be very small for more than a couple. Read more
Thank you so much for your review. We are glad that you found the apartment very well located.
We do offer a bottle of welcome wine as standard,so we will look into what caused you not having one and make sure this does not happen again. Please accept our sincere apologies.
Regarding the noise we have already installed a double window - this will for sure enhance our guests experience in our apartment.
We hope to see you again in the future.

"Great Comfortable apartment in a Great Location"
Left on 05/10/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | kevinReviewed May 10, 2012Stayed May 2012
We had a great time staying in this apartment in Lisbon. It is furnished very comfortably, and was centrally located to everything including the Lisbon Tram that can take you up to St George's Castle and up into the alto Barrio. The 15 tram that will take you out to Belem is only a couple blocks away too. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, and when it was time to leave, the bus stop to the airport was only a couple blocks away as well. I can't recommend this apartment enough. Read more
Nothing makes us happier than seeing reviews like this, knowing that we played a part in an overall successful trip to Lisbon.
Please do be in touch with us the next time that you visit Lisbon. And check our new destinations in Europe ( Barcelona, London, Paris).

"Good stay, nice apt., great location and great service from Raqu"
Left on 05/08/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 8, 2012Stayed Apr 2012
The service was excellent. Raquel was helpful in every way. The apartment was very nice. However, the sofa was most uncomfortable. Also, the lack of an outlet by a mirror was a really bad thing for me. The location was great. We were able to walk everywhere, and that's what we liked the best. Nice apt. But put in a comfortable sofa and an outlet by a mirror! I have a complaint regarding the offer to set up a taxi to pick us up at the airport. We accepted the offer, paid the 35.00 Euros (to the taxi driver) when he picked us up at the airport, plus tip. A taxi never showed up to take us to the airport, so we got our own taxi. The fare was under 10.00 Euros! A rip off! Read more
Thank you so much for review. We're very pleased to hear that loved Rachel´s check in and the location.
Regarding the sofa and the outlet by the window we will take your suggestion into account, because all our guests opinion are important to improve our future guests experience in our apartments. Please accept our apologies that the lack of outlet caused you.
Concerning the discrepancy between the taxis prices is because the service chosen to take you to the apartment was a private transfer and not a regular taxi used to take back to the airport.
We do hope to see you again in Lisbon.

This apartment was spotlessly clean, had floor to ceiling windows throughout, was a corner apartment on the third floor and was near to everything including the train station, the river and the central district. Could not have asked for more. Read more
