First off, I will mirror what most reviews say... the location is amazing. It's on top of Baixa-Chiado metro station (and the metro line extends all the way to Lisbon's airport) and it's CENTRAL. As in... middle of tourist-packed city centre central. The hotel itself is... while not underwhelming... well... it's on the lower end of the 3 stars it... More

This hotel has a fantastic location, within walking distance of almost everything (if Lisbon's hills don't scare you) and right next to the subway (Baixa-Chiado station - blue line and green line). The breakfast is also very nice and the WiFi was good. BUT... the accomodations are very spartan. Some of the rooms are very small, some have been renovated... More

This hotel was very centrally placed for shopping and getting around. It was very busy at check-in so avoid the specified check-in time. The room was clean but noisy until about 1am. I don't think we'd choose this hotel again, we'd probably choose something quieter next time.

Look elsewhere first. While the location is great, you will undoubtedly overpay for what you will receive. The rooms were beat up and uncleanly. We suffered through a night in one to get a room change the next night. The "updated" room was like putting lipstick on a pig: looked new but poorly designed and of bad quality. The front... More

The best about this Hotel is for sure it's location! The rooms are quite ok and big and the breakfast is pretty standart but good! However the locations tops it all. Very close from Cais do Sodré, Bairro Alto and just in front of the Metro-station.

This hotel has a location that cannot be beat. You are literally right in front of a metro stop and the area is so walkable all you want to do is discover all the streets around you. We walked in the neighborhood and stumbled on Museum of the National Guard and the Archeological Museum, and that is steps away from... More

We were in Portugal and decided a last minute trip to see Lisbon, hopped on a train, right outside Baixa Chiado station was a square full of bars, restaurant and music! Looked across to see a cute little sign which said "Hotel" in black on top of a glass door, walked in hoping they had rooms as this was a... More

Our actual stay at the hotel was fine, however in the time since they, they have been totally unresponsive about luggage that was accidentally left behind. They have not responded to any emails sent and were entirely dismissive on the phone. If they were responsive, they would easily earn more stars, however I'm super disappointed in how this is being... More

We first stayed at the Borges Chiado back in 2012 and chose it again mainly because of its excellent location and proximity to Bairro Alto, the Metro and the 28 tram. It's a nice hotel, too, though the air-con can be a bit overpowering and the breakfast is short on character. Initially we were a bit disappointed to be stuck... More

Travelled to Portugal for 4 nights as a couple and despite the rain had a perfect stay here. On check in we were stuck behind a party of around 30 French students also trying to check in. We thought the worst - late night noise! We asked for a quiet room when checking in and the staff were brilliant! They... More

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighborhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
