Expert review of Hotel do Chiado

An affordable hotel in the middle of Lisbon’s shopping district.

If you plan on spending the weekend sifting through the bargain boutiques of Chiado and lunching in street cafes, then this is an excellent place to base yourself.

Location: 

Lisbon doesn’t quite do ‘High Street’, instead there’s a hive of cobbled streets and squares dotted with high-end stores, designer boutiques and mainstream shops. Hotel do Chiado is right in the thick of all this, right next to Pepe Jeans and around the corner from Marc Jacobs. Lots of cafes and restaurants are within walking distance, plus the nightlife of Bairro Alto is a stone’s throw away.

Bedrooms: 

The highlight is the view from the impressively large suites. Grand grey-stone balconies open onto to a private manicured lawn, from where you’ll get one of the best views in Lisbon. A tri-layered vista shows the handsome historic statues and spires of Baixa, the dusk-orange rooftops and castle of the Arabic Alfama district, and finally, the silky blue waters of the Rio Tejo. The standard rooms fall a tiny bit on the functional side, in comparison. My double bed was in fact two singles pushed together, which isn’t ideal and the bold blue and orange patterned tones were very, unintentionally, kitsch. But, for the price, the size, space and comfort was pretty good.

Public areas: 

Plenty of effort has gone into the décor of the public areas, with antique Chinese chests, lamps and art brightening up the otherwise dark corridors and lobby.

Eating and drinking: 

There isn’t a restaurant, which is not a problem given its location. However there is a bright breakfast room and the comfortable Entretanto Bar has deep sofas to rest your sore limbs after buzzing around the city centre.

Service: 

The service is OK, but the reception only ever seemed to be staffed by one person, making it difficult get the attention one needs.
