Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stopped here on the outside terrace of the hotel whilst working our way up to the Alfama district. Here we enjoyed a couple of beers on a very pleasant late September day. It was a great stop for relaxing and just generally people watching. The staff were very pro-active in keeping everything clean, vigorously wiping chairs and tables with disinfectant after each table was vacated. Loos also spotless. Very reassuring in these times.

We where 3 of us little boy who has 1yr old. The room was last located at the back side of the hotel which you don't have a view but we don't bother for that, as we were out all day.

The staff are great nothing to say they are very helpful nice and friendly.

The breakfast was good too. We had full English breakfast. Eggs sausages mini. Bacon. Bread yougurt fruits sweets and of course we had the pastel de nata typical lisboa sweet. Yes i love too eat.

The hotel is near metro torreiro de paco and if you can download the app bolt is cheap to arrive at the hotel for only 6euros. Metro is convenient from the airport too. Direct.

The only thing is i had a problem with it is the noise coming from the floor above.. you will listen people steps like squeaky floor problem. And i woke up like in the middle of the night waiting for them to sleep. But anyways not on all the floors. We were in room 306.

We were there a total of 8 nights. We had a problem with a mix-up with another nearby hotel that we had booked through Expedia. The young lady at Riverside Alfama, Claudia, worked with us for nearly 4 hours to find a solution that worked for us and didn't cost us more money. In general, all the staff there was helpful and friendly. They answered all our questions about Lisbon and other places in Portugal with very helpful information. The breakfasts were very good. The hotel is centrally located, easy to walk to interesting places in Lisbon, and near to bus and tram stops if the attractions are further away. It is also within walking distance of a major train station. I highly recommend it.

This hotel was much more than we ever expected, as soon as we walked in the door we were so warmly greeted that we knew we had made the right decision to stay there.
Our room overlooked the river and we had a small Juliet balcony it was so lovely, a huge comfortable bed and although the bathroom was small the shower was powerful and large. We were shocked at how incredibly quiet the room was in this busy, noisy city.
The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us, on our last night we had terrible trouble checking in and printing our boarding passes but the lady on reception spent such a lot of her time helping until she sorted the issue for us.
There are lots of excellent restaurants nearby and the Metro is close by, brilliant situation.
It was my birthday and I couldn't wish to have been anywhere else, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

If like me you like small informal hotels you will love this place
It is a stones throw away from the railway station, the metro and the river
We landed very late evening but we were given a really warm welcome
We were given recommendations of places to visit and restaurants close by
We booked a standard room which was lovely, spotlessly clean and comfortable
It had probably the best shower I have ever had in a hotel powerful and hot.
Breakfast was the usual found in most hotels, fruit pastries, cheese and hams fruit juices and coffee and pancakes but there was nowhere to warm these up as I think they are better warm
Only small complaint is all the yoghurts were plain and some warm food would have been nice ie eggs
We were kept awake on just one night by somebody constantly walking around their room above which the hotel is not responsible for just selfish people
Other than that the rooms were really quiet
We caught the metro from the airport and it was a couple of minutes walk to the hotel when we arrived
We also caught the train to Cascais on the coast which was a nice day out
You can catch a boat close to the railway station to go across the river to see the statue of Christ which you can also go to the top and see the amazing views over the city
I would also recommend a train ride to Belém to try the best Portuguese tarts I have ever tasted
As previous people have mentioned the staff at the hotel were amazing. They were so friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble
We wouldn’t stay anywhere else if we ever return to Lisbon. A very big thank you from us both

Paid 79 euros per night on season for a pair of twin beds, balcony view of Tagus. Sparklingly clean, modern room with firm mattresses and great hot water in the shower, excellent wifi. 100 meters from metro that goes directly to airport.
200 meter uphill walk through the Alfama to Se Cathedral and Resistance Museum, 200 meters to Praca Comercio amd the trams that go to Belem. 300 meters to Fado museum. Several excellent restaurants, both pricey and cheap nearby. The ideal location.
Breakfast included pastries, ham and cheese, orange slices, grapes, orange juice, coffee, and tea.
Staff was absolutely charming, helpful in recommending restaurants.
Highly recommended.

We have just returned from a 7 night stay in Lisbon. I always research my accommodation choice carefully, particularly since we have not ventured on holiday for 18 months and my better half was turning 50! We were first timers to Lisbon and I sought good value, a central location, ease of access from the airport and plenty of restaurants close by. The Riverside Alfama ticked every one of those boxes. The location is really very, very good.

We stayed in a standard room booked directly with the hotel which was offering a special deal. For a 3 star offering, it was perfect!

Breakfast was great, always fresh and it offered enough choice to set you up for the day.

Rooms are simple, modern and have good AC. Beds are firm which may bother some.

The staff were always pleasant and polite and not intrusive (which i like).

Should we return, we would look at this hotel again. I doubt you will find better at this price point.

Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, they provided us with all information we need on tourist attractions and local transport. On request, they can give good advice on restaurant worth to visit. Room and breakfast are very good. Location is central, close to sights, cafes, restaurants and shops.

We loved our stay at this quiet, spotless, charming and kindly staffed Hotel in an excellent location to enjoy the city from! We will be back!
Our rooms (we had two beautiful side by side rooms with river views for our family if 5 with 3 teens) were a pleasant surprise- larger than I had thought. So nice and quiet at night, but close to the nightlife if desired. We walked all over the city from the hotel and enjoyed great restaurants close by as well as ones in the other parts of the city close by, or by one of the many ways to get around.
The best part besides the rooms, was the staff!
We arrived early morning after very long flights from western United States and were greeted by the kind and friendly Joel who covers the eve/am hours. He answered all our questions and spoke great English. The espresso in the lobby was a morning tradition where we spoke to the kind owner of the hotel, Amancio Moreira. There is a nice Portuguese pottery shop attached to front lobby where you can make your own tiles - super fun!
The evening attendant, Marina Rossi who also spoke perfect English was so great! She helped us coordinate transportation and explained train, etc in detail and advised on many of our questions.
The breakfasts were good- very traditional though the espresso machine in the lobby was preferable to the drip coffee at breakfast (but I’m a picky coffee drinker). Yummy traditional baked goods, rolls, croissants, yogurt, granola, fruit selections, meats/cheeses. Very nice.
We hated to leave and highly recommend everything about this gem!

This hotel is Lovely, the staff make it 5 star!! The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was filling with croissants, pasteis, fresh fruit and vegetables. It was a great start each day! They also provide free water and coffee 24 hours a day. Margarida and Moreira were so helpful setting up tours and giving us tips. Tanya and Maya kept the breakfast buffet area so clean and stocked. Marcia was a delight each evening helping us with our room temperature and drinks. She even found me a snack one night after all the restaurants were closed. We arrived early the first day and our room wasn't ready. They graciously stored our luggage and when we came back, the luggage was already in our room!! Also on the last day, Moreira advised the breakfast crew to open early so we could have breakfast before our flight!! Again, customer service is what makes this hotel!! It is located in the Alfama district....close to several restaurants, shopping, metro, etc. We walked Everywhere and used Bolt, Uber, and Tuk tuk when it was too far away. Lisbon is beautiful, and Hotel Riverside made our first time so Amazing!! Obrigada Moreira, Margarida, Marcia, Tania and Maya!! Til we meet again!!
