Expert review of Chiado 16

Luxury apartments with boutique hotel service in downtown Lisbon.

This is a high-end aparthotel suited to independent-minded visitors who want their own space and comfort with the added trimmings of a luxury hotel. If I could afford it, I’d stay here every time.

Location: 

As the name suggests this is in the Chiado district, from where most places are reachable by foot. You’re in a great spot to check out the best of Lisbon’s sights, cafes and shops by day, and eat and party in the best restaurants and bars by night.

Bedrooms: 

Ultra-stylish, the rooms in the one-bed apartments give a nod to the period history of the building and area. Antique tables and chairs stand opposite grand, cosy beds. French windows in the bedrooms open onto the busy city centre. And the living room opens up further into a large and well-equipped kitchen-diner.

Eating and drinking: 

The hotel-owned Tagide restaurant, next-door, serves high-end Portuguese food, which is available via room service. Despite recently losing its Michelin star, the food is still excellent. I love their Bacalhau (salt-cod), which is served with dried ham and chickpea puree. Perfect when delivered with a glass of crisp Alvarinho to the front door of your city centre crash pad.

Leisure facilities: 

There are in-room massage and spa treatments available on request.

Service: 

Here you get five-star service with a personal touch. You feel like a VIP from the moment the concierge greets you with your personal mobile phone. I always like the understanding smile the owner, Heleen, gives when you need a few extra hours to check-out.

Who stays there: 

Hard to tell as the layout of the place restricts you from meeting other guests, but I imagine it’s in-the-know weekenders looking for luxury and their own space.

Price advice: 

Rates only vary slightly (about 10 percent) between low and high season.

Pros: 
Unique
Great value
Cons: 
Lack of five-star leisure facilities
