Profile: Chiado

Profile: Chiado

The stylish Chiado quarter is found next to Baixa in the center of Lisbon. Its chic jewelry stores, fashion boutiques, and old-world cafés, such as A Brasileira, are best discovered on foot; visitors can stop off for a meal in the luxurious, mirrored Tavares Rico restaurant.

Aside from shopping, this district is also famed for its vibrant cultural heritage. A number of excellent museums and theaters, like the legendary Teatro da Trindade with its glowing pink facade, continue the rich traditions of the poet Fernando Bressoa and the celebrated realist writer Eca de Queiroz, who both lived in the area.

    The room did not look at all like the one we got .. we had low beam and I got my head twice needed ice the staff was informed but the response was this is the room u paid for .. the description did not mention sewage smells or that it had low beams . We paid for a triple room and were disappointed it was like a musty old dorm room in a farm house nothing palace like . Buyer beware . The staff is not interested in helping . I wrote yo the Mgr of the property this morning no response .

    Very friendly staff

    Staff was super helpful and friendly, I changed or extended my reservation twice and they were very patient and helped me find a great rate when I stayed another extra night. Breakfast is a little crowded because people come from multiple locations, but otherwise good and they have surprisingly excellent coffee.

    DONOT TRUST THEIR RESERVATION SYSTEM

    I booked this hotel on October 27 2019 and fully paid for it way in advance for December 29 check in. Two days before check in date while I was travelling in Spain they texted me that their computer error did not have my reservation therefore no room for me. They offered me a lower price apartment which I had no way to check the condition of the place. But, if they had no information on the reservation ,how they know where to get in touch with me? Hate to think they just took my room for someone else I had spend hours to panic search for another place to stay. I did not receive any apologies or compensation from anyone. This is BOTH Hotel.com and the property at fault. Been deal with Hotel .com for many years and this was the first. May be in there future I should just call the hotels directly to book in stead of Hotel.com. Well, somebody sure lost my confidence on their business.

    Wonderful experience. Although our room was cozy, the view was excellent, as was the service. The building is beautiful, and the breakfast was excellent.

    wonderful place to experience Lisbon

    The palace was beautiful and the staff enthusiastic, helpful and professional! We had a twin room at the top! You could access food during the day which was made available in one of the dining rooms! The property is palatial and well decorated and comfortable. There were many rooms in which you could sit and contemplate, beautiful music played often including live piano music during breakfast. Very friendly, multilingual experience! Highly recommended.

    Thin walls, chilly shower!!

    Good location, beautiful old palace, great breakfast but paper thin walls. Young adults were hanging out at the corner right below our window, singing, partying-you could clearly hear conversations. Water in the shower was cold at prime shower time. I knew this was an older building and we did enjoy it despite those things.

    Charming hotel!

    We had a wonderful stay in Lisbon and absolutely loved our hotel, it was very charming. They offered a dinner with Fado and it was lovely. I will warn that if you have a lot of luggage the stairs are pretty steep and there are many of them. It wasn’t a problem for us, but others might not like it. We would definitely stay here again!
