                              The perfect Lisbon

                              5 of 5
                              Pedro was terrific. He made sure we were informed and remained attentive throughout our stay. The apartment is Very high end with everything you might want. The views are as good as it gets! King size beds in all 3 bedrooms. Close to everything. Walk a mile and your at plaza Comercio, the castle, Mercado Ribeira etc. we will return and stay with Pedro again. Perfection.

                              Beautiful apartment n great locaton

                              5 of 5
                              This apartment was ideal for us - two couples. It is roomy with bathroom to serve each bedroom, and a well-equipped kitchen. The window shutters are great to keep the noise out when Lisbon is in its revels. Our companions found their double bed a little hard but the two single beds were fine. The locations in Chiado is also good. Not far from many of the Lisbon attractions. There is parking available although the operations of the gates is temperamental. There are also limitations to the access to the road which is closed after 7:00 pm.

                              Beautiful flat in perfect location!

                              5 of 5
                              We stayed in the Chiado flat the first week of November 2015 and were very delighted with everything. It is exactly as you see in the photos, views included, and is perfect for a couple, leaving a great sense of space and openness . The best of all, though, you don't really see in the photographs, and that is the perfect location of the flat - you couldn't really ask for a more central one, and at the same time being literally a two minute walk from the magnificent Praça do Comércio (a place worth visiting day and night!). It is also located in one of the few non hilly areas of the city (which believe me you will appreciate very soon). Tram and bustops are just below the flat and the underground station just around the corner. Any drawbacks? If you love cooking, you'll find the kitchen a bit short of utensils - though everything you really need is there. We would definitely love to come and stay at the flat again! Anders and Alessandra
