I stayed at this quaint cozy loft in April for a couple nights. It's a good hike to this 5th floor walk up...no elevator...but what awaits you is certainly worth it for the very affordable rate (€25) and super accommodating, kind, cool, and hospitable hostess, Patricia. She is awesome! My room was adorable...nicely decorated....spacious....and comforting. Beds were very average...but again...rates very cheap and I wasn't in Lisbon to sleep too much. There is a great kitchen available to use for all guests if you desire to do so....I prefer to 'eat out' while traveling and indulge in a city/country's cuisine! Room also had a little balcony...view was somewhat limited but it was a cool bonus nonetheless to leave the doors open at night and feel a connection to the outside while sleeping. The balcony really added to my room! (Not certain if all rooms have balconies though) Bathrooms are shared...and very simple...so don't expect much there. But again...I was not in Lisbon to bathe in some luxurious 5 star bathroom. That is what my home is for... The bathroom certainly suffices for a bathrooms intentions! Two major things to point out.... 1st) There is no lighting in the stairway/hallway...so you need to use some sort of lighting to SEE at night. Download a flashlight app to your phone and you'll be fine. 2nd) Signage outside....there isn't any?! Know the address (#) and directions...and just ring the buzzer on the panel...they will answer and your anxieties will subside...lol! If not....go grab an expresso and pastel de nata from anyone of the pastry shops on Loreto up the street to the left of the hotels exit. Happy @ Chiado, which I definitely was, sits between the Bairro Alto and Chiado areas of Lisbon....it is a very short walk from the Baixa-Chiado metro stop on Loreto off of Praca de Camoes square (there are 2 churches off the square for reference). The metro from Lisbon airport takes you there. It is extremely simple to navigate. Enjoy your stay at this little delight in the sky....I did!
