I stayed here as part of an organised tour. On the plus side it was very clean and had really good aircon. However, the negatives outweigh the positives with this place - there is a lot of stairs to climb up before you can access a lift which is not ideal with luggage. The male receptionist was unhelpful and unwelcoming... More

Only stayed for one night with the family but it was definitely worth it. Beds were very comfy and spacious. Breakfast was a buffet therefore a good selection to choose from. Staff were very nice and friendly. Good location as you are right in the centre of Lisbon and easily finding your way around. Would definitely comeback for more days.

This small pensione is superbly located close to the heart of Lisbon .... everything is within walking distance. The rooms and ensuite are clean and there is a small bar and lounge beside reception. They do not serve breakfast but there is a supermarket and many restaurants in close proximity. Free Wi-Fi is available in the lounge area.

Our room was facing away from the street so it was very quiet. The A/C made quite a bit of noise but if you didn't use it the room was quite peaceful. The wifi was slow and a bit unstable but it was there, and it was free. The room itself was dated and tired but clean and well maintained.... More

Upon arrival you are faced with a large flight of stairs to the first floor reception where the lift is also located. Guests need reasonable mobility. The whole hotel could do with a real makeover, it is just too tired. The room was quite large and the bathroom was just average. We did not have breakfast there, but the adjoining... More

Simple hotel with large rooms and bathrooms but just a bit tired. Good for what we needed and perfect location close to the main areas and within walking distance of everything. As others have mentioned, no lift until first floor with lots of steps and so-so breaky.

A bit small (more the hall than the room in reality... we got lucky and got a large room from wich you can see the castle), but welcoming hotel. Not suggested for people with mobility difficulties because the lift started from the first floor. It's very near the Baixa and Saint George castle and from there it's easy to reach... More

Not much to say about this hotel, it is run down, and needs a bit of work, I'm sure in its day it was quiet grande. The hotel is in close proximity to the central square and loads of tourist attractions, the hotel is well organised and the staff helpful.

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
