We stayed three nights in one of the apartments. Overall, we had a good stay. The apartments are a 20 min walk (fast pace) from the Baixa/Chiado subway station; so prepare to walk if you're going to stay there. The area is not so nice - lots of abandoned houses and apartments, and there's only one mini-market and small supermarkt to buy groceries. The reception was a bit unpersonal. We had to call a number and got instructions on how to enter the apartment by phone. The apartment was spacious and clean; however a few things were missing (for instance a kitchen towel would have been convenient, as well as some cooking utensils). The quality of the beds was great - probably never had any better matresses in a rental apartment. The hatches in the apartment also allow to have a pitch dark room. However, sleep quality was rather poor because of continuous noise at night. The walls didn't seem sufficiently isolated - there was always a terrific noise when people entered the building, running through the staircase,... This accommodation is a good option (price/quality ratio very good) but personally, if I'd go to Lisbon again, I'd look for something more centrally located.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Conde Barao Apartments stand just next to Tagus River. From here you may stroll until Lisbon famous Praça do Comercio or feel just like a "Lisboeta" by getting on tram 25 that stops at our doorstep. We are sure you will be delighted with the old alleyways and cobbled streets during your stroll until Bairro Alto and Chiado. Conde Barao Apartments are right in the middle of "Santos Design District," an area that contributes greatly to an authentic city; a place that looks more like a village when the bells ring and when you see the puzzle of colourful clothes hanging on the clotheslines covering part of the tiled facades of the typical Lisbon buildings. The building was opened to the public in October 2008 after a major refurbishment. It has a large wood staircase and lift. ... more less
