I’ve read some pretty mixed reviews about Severa Apartments and having stayed four nights recently in the top floor loft, I would advise anyone to concentrate on the better ones. Owner Rodrigo is welcoming and helpful, I thought the place was clean and so did my partner... and she’s not at all easily pleased when it comes to cleanliness! The decor is recent and well looked after, the area is quieter than Chiado or Baixa for example, yet still handy for town... walk south to the river where frequent trams, trains and buses run, or north a few streets, where popular tram route 28 can be caught. Metro stations are a little further afield, but still accessible. One tip... make contact with Rodrigo well before you arrive to arrange check-in.
