The Chiado Apts/5A worked perfectly for our party of 4. The central location was easy to navigate to from the airport via metro, and close to the cruise terminal (just a quick Uber away). The apartment is spacious, the rooms comfortably sized. A couple of fair warnings: 4 full flights of stairs!! And the shower in the 2nd bathroom is TINY!! Will be very difficult for a person of much bulk to utilize. The master bath, however, is spacious. We were even able to string up some clothesline to dry some of our clothes over our 4 night stay. HUGE BONUS: a small washer/dryer unit allowed us to refresh our travel clothes after 8 days on the road, and they provided a dryer rack, too. Nice! Strong wifi and LOVELY views out the windows. We'd highly recommend it!
Excellent location. Very comfortable with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, kitchen, and living room, several small balconies with great views. Two elevators. There was a telephone for free local calls but did not work. Fast wifi.
I rented this apartment for our family (and later a smaller one floor down for the in-laws). The booking procedure was completely flawless and any questions and requirements were adressed by Chiado Apartments in very short time. I also booked ad transfer from the airport and a pick-up - everything went completely smooth.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, and the beds and duvets were great - we all slept like logs even the first night here.The kitchen was fine and had everything we needed plus a little extra. In the kitchen there is a dishwasher and a washing machine.
In the building there are two elevators, so even heavy luggage is no problem.
We were received by a representative, who showed us around in the apartment and told us a little bit about the neighborhood, and they were very helpful during our stay by helping us finding the best places for Fado and the like.
The neighborhood is very nice and quiet, with lots of shops and restaurants. The famous/notorious Tram 28 is only a few hundred meters away, and the metro station Baixa-Chiado even less.
The only catch is the door opening system to the apartment (like the entrance door to the building it opens by a RFID keycard), which can be impossible to operate for children and people with rheumatoid arthritis due to the small size of the knob and the force needed. Maybe the only small point of improvement could be this.
But I will not hesitate by recommending the place.
