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.

Coventry, United Kingdom

Visited Lisbon for a long weekend to celebrate both mine and my partner's birthdays. We originally booked another hotel in the city but changed our minds late on as we felt this one offered us a better location at a slightly lower price. We were delighted with this decision! The hotel was very cool looking and spotlessly clean. Each of the members of staff we met, either at reception or at the bar, were so friendly and offered a fantastic service. Prior to going on the trip we informed them we were celebrating our birthdays as they enquired about any special occasions. We did not mention it again but were pleasantly surprised to find balloons and a handwritten note from the hotel on the day that was my girlfriend's actual birthday. This was followed up by the team whilst we were sitting in the outside area having a drink that afternoon by them bringing out a small cake and singing happy birthday. This was a really nice touch.
The room itself was really nice with excellent shower facilities, some free snacks and a great view of the city. They also provide a smart phone in the room which you can take out and about with you if you need it.
I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough.

This is a true Urban Boutique hotel, which I would highly recommend for a few nights n short city break, the hotel has a lot of individual modern industrial design features, and a lot of the rooms have their own decoration, which makes the stay feel very personalised.

The superior rooms are very large, ligth and have superb walk in showers with lots of bathroom and floor space, the standard rooms do have less space, but still have great bathrooms, and a selection of teas and ground coffee with french press, and great shower and hair products. Clothes space in the small rooms is only sufficient for short breaks, but enough for a few nights.

The public areas are really comfortable with a lovely outdoor terrace including a second level with city rooftop views.

The staff are amazing, really friendly and they provided so much help with places to go and eat and we have some great conversations with Kesya, and all the staff looked after us.

Location is near the famous Alfama district, near the waterfront, and lots of excellent bars, cafes and restaurants as well as the tram network.

Highly recommended, I look forward to visiting in the future

The hotel is in an excellent location, in the center, within walking distance from major attractions, and further afield can be reached by metro, bus, tuk tuk, all close to the hotel, and of course by taxi. Taxis are cheap. We preferred taxis. Near the hotel, there are many restaurants and cafes, supermarkets, and many shops for shopping lovers.
Excellent staff, especially Inês, and Taia from Ukraine, thy are very helpful in everything - in regards to the room and also regarding restaurants in the vicinity, taxis, explanations, recommendations, and everything that is required.
They give a feeling of home. We stayed there for 3 nights, left our belongings for the night when we had a trip outside of Lisbon, returned for another two nights, then traveled for a week to Madeira. Again, we had left some of our belongings at the hotel and returned for another 4 nights. The staff made sure to let us have the same room, and every time we returned to the hotel, our belongings were waiting for us in a clean room ready for another stay.
We stayed in room 41 a big room with a very small balcony containing 2 chairs without a table and potted plants
The room is large, with a desk. They're safe, air conditioning. There is no mini bar, but there is free drinking water, a kettle to make tea and coffee and there is a small percolator. There is good lighting by the bed.
But everything is basic... there is no closet, only an open shelf cabinet, a small clothing rack. Not suitable for a long stay, because there is no room for our clothes and belongings. in addition to a large bed, the room has a sofa and a luggage rack, on which you can place suitcases and belongings.
A large bathroom without cabinets or shelves, everything is basic. Rough and unpleasant toilet paper, no tissue. There is body lotion, shampoo, and conditioner; there is a hair dryer,
Taxi to the hotel from the airport is 11 euros. Many taxis pass through this street No need to order a taxi. Taxis are cheap. Average price is 5-9 euros.
The breakfast at the hotel is average and expensive. We ate a rich buffet breakfast at the nearby hotel Madalena by The Beautique Hotels R. da Madalena 271, or at Restaurante Figus Praca da Figueira 17, Lisbon. Both charged us 10 euros per person.
We also ate at Confeitaria Nacional in Praca da Figueira
There are excellent pastries, and you can have breakfast there. A bit expensive compared to the previous two.

The room is a tad small, simple and minimalist. The service is good. One week before arrival, the hotel will send you a message asking for your estimated arrival time so they can prepare your room upon your arrival even if it is before check in hour.They can also arrange pick up from the airport if you desire or to celebrate your special occasion. The staff is friendly and helpful. Location is good as it is within walking distance from most attractions. Lots of good eateries nearby. Rossio train and subway stations are less than 10 mins walk away. Complimentary tea, coffee and toiletries in the room. There is a bar/restaurant on site. However there is no free breakfast. There is also this little gizmo of a free mobile phone for you to carry around the city to navigate your way through and functions like a little guide book. Also you can use it to make local or overseas call for 30 mins a day without charge. How cool is that?!

We just returned from a multi-night stay at this boutique property. The location is outstanding in that the hotel is within easy walking distance of so many great sights, restaurants and pastry shops/cafes (not to mention the Alfama District, Commercial Square, Rossio Square, Rossio Station, Tram 28 and the Metro), yet still in a relatively quiet spot, a few blocks removed from the throngs of tourists. The rooms are very clean and well maintained...the rainforest shower is awesome. But what really sets the place apart is the staff. Everyone we dealt with did their best to make us feel welcome and take care of us. Rita in particular went above and beyond to ensure that we had reservations at the key restaurants we wanted to try, and even secured us a table to see a performance at an excellent Fado Club on a busy night. The adjoining restaurant (M Bistro) was also wonderful. The rates are a great value for what you get - the property is rated 3 stars but is better than a number of international 4-stars we've stayed at. We would absolutely stay again.

Three enterprising young architects have lovingly renovated an old school building into a charming boutique hotel. The access to the rooms is a bit quirky, but the rooms themselves are charming, comfortable, and will all modern amenities including excellent wi-fi, comfortable beds, air conditioning, and lovely bathroom facilities. Tip: room 22 has original historic tiling. The hotel is on a hill with stunning views of Lisbon. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel has a lovely small courtyard where one can have breakfast. Unfortunately Covid has closed the kitchen for dinner, but served breakfast (extra charge) has a variety of choices. There is a bar with some limited drink selections.

we enjoyed our stay here. for me there are certain essentials that define an acceptable hotel: comfortable beds with multiple pillows, blackout curtains, quiet and responsive air conditioning, good water pressure in the shower, fast wifi, quality breakfast offered until late in the morning, complimentary water, polite and friendly staff... esqina had all of these right. the hotel also benefits from being newly established, it's aesthetically pleasing, and centrally located. higher rooms on the south facing side have great views of chiado. i would return if in lisbon again.

The hotel is quite new which meant everything was still in great shape and clean. I loved the location which was central to Baixa with easy access to Alfama. Having the elevator to St. Jorge so close was very convenient, and two of the main squares and plenty of restaurants were within walking distance. The bar downstairs was a great place to stop in (or stay) - I met a lot of great people from all over the world, and Tiago created some awesome concoctions! The hotel staff were beyond amazing and friendly. They always took the time to say hello, and provide me with some much needed directions at times. The added bonus of having a mobile phone provided was unexpected and very much appreciated! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to others!

Had an amazing time at this boutique hotel that is pretty much central to anywhere you’d like to go. The staff was really sweet and friendly and were always willing to help with suggestions for restaurants, bars and tips on ‘off the beaten path’ places to visit. One cool thing that they provided that I haven’t seen fine before is an ‘iPhone like GPS device’ in your room that you can take anywhere with you. This had everything from maps to recommendations and you could use it to message the front desk for extra towels or pretty much anything you need. Was very helpful esp as an extra device if you are like me and drain your personal cell phone of battery but still need maps when walking around :) The room itself was perfect with an amazing view. The hotel I believe is newly remodeled so everything is in great shape. Would definitely stay here again whenever I go back and I definitely plan on that. Beautiful city with beautiful people!
