Bright, daylight filled apartments, at the 2nd and 3rd floors. Apartments located on Rua Garrett, one of the most important streets of historic Lisbon, they have a privilege location in the heart of the cultural and historical part of the city (Chiado).
Very close to several museums, operas, theaters and churches. A few minutes walk takes you to the Rossio, in the Baixa, and to the Elevador da Lavra. The other direction, you will reach the Praça do Comércio, which is located in the center of the Portuguese old empire near the river Tejo (Tagus).
To go to Sintra you must take the train at Rossio. To go to Óbidos you have Entre-Campos train station or Campo-Grande bus station, which is just a short subway trip from Chiado.
Chiado is considered the most beautiful area of historical Lisbon. It was a place of residence of the Portuguese royalty and of the political and cultural elites. Nearby is the theater S. Luis, the opera D. Carlosas well as theather D. Maria II in Rossio.

A little further up on the left is Camões Square (Praça de Camões), next to Bairro Alto, picturesque but raffish; part of Lisbon's nightlife seems to be concentrated in this quarter, which was frequented to hear the sentimental 'fados' sung in certain restaurants and cafés. Chiado and Bairro Alto are 'the' meeting point for locals and tourists, with elegant hotels, old cafés, and the best international fashion shops nearby.

Apartment is very comfortable and clean. Silvia was very helpful with any info needed. The location is wonderful. A short walk to everything. The bathroom is difficult to use. No where to put toiletries and there is a damp - odour. No place to hang towels to dry etc. it was still wonderful to be in the shopping Mecca of the area.
This is a clean and functional small apartment allowing a couple ample facilities. Security is good and the owner is helpful.
An immaculately presented new apartment in the best location in Lisbon. We were met by Paulo to explain the features of the apartment and he was able to assist with a late checkout which was perfect for our flight time.His personal assistance was much appreciated. Airport transfers were also arranged. The apartment was one of the best places we stayed in our 6 week vacation. We highly recommend a stay.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was very clean and functional. Nice modern decor and excellent location in the heard of the Chiado district. Easy access to trams, and walking distance from shopping and many cafes/restaurants. The atmosphere of the area is fun. The noise from the street was not noticeable. The 3rd floor location gave a nice view of the street and surrounding buildings. The physical space was very comfortable and spacious for 2 people. We also had visitors for a few meals and the table opened up to a larger size that accommodated 6 people comfortably. The kitchen was clean and generally well equipped other than cooking utensils being a little sparse. We also thought it would have helped to have basic staples such as salt, pepper, sugar on site. We had some trouble with the (stove) gas line (breaker turned off) but Paulo was helpful in responding to this concern. The bathroom was well appointed and having laundry on site was very useful! We required parking for our rental car and Paulo was helpful in securing an underground parking spot for us. Overall, the apartment met our expectations and matched the information presented on the VRBO website. We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to experience a taste of life in the heart of Lisbon.
Our 1BR in Chiado on Rue Garrett was a perfect place for us. We had our 22 month old son with us Paulo provided us with a pack-n-play for the stay which we were greatly appreciative. The flat itself is spacious enough, the 1 bedroom pretty large, the kitchen functional and bathroom fine. We used the washer and dryer twice and it was great.
Chiado is the center of the shopping area of town and very walkable. it's easily walkable to the Praca Libertad and Barrio Alto. Trams can take you along the water. All in all the location is awesome. Would totally recommend again. The only thing I would possibly change is to take the 2BR because it may offer a little more space.
We loved staying here and would stay here again. Ideally located. We loved the neighborhood and restaurants nearby. Apartment was nicely appointed. It had everything we needed. The girls we dealt with were very nice and helpful.
