Stayed in the Penthouse Suite. This had a huge balcony with table and 2 chairs and 2 sun loungers. The views were amazing. We sat out with coffee in the mornings and wine/beers as the sun was going down. Very spacious. There was also a fridge, cooker, hob, kettle, toaster and coffee maker. Breakfast was only €5 and there was... More

Sitting on the top of a hill the way there is rather strenuous. You have to get down from the hill again to get access to anything of use. The hotel itself is great, modern rooms, modern marble bathrooms, roof terrace with a great view. No aircon but a strong fan. Good wifi. For the Americans - no elevator. Value... More

This is ideal for the price. Great central location in a neighbourhood full of locals, not tourists, meaning the shops and restaurants nearby are much cheaper and nicer than the city centre. The roof terrace was fantastic, but the lack of a.c let the place down. The rooms are also very small, so only book here if you plan on... More

Room and staff are very nice. The neighborhood is probably not the best you can be in Lisbon though. And if visiting Lisbon during the summer months - things twice before booking this place: there is no AC in the rooms. We opened the window to keep the room cooler during the night, unfortunately garbage collection in Lisbon on that... More

The room was small, very narrow and with no AC very hot. Very small bathroom, but modern and clean. Since there was no AC we had to leave the window open during the night, the street is very loud and we couldn't sleep because the heat and the noises from the street. Not a pleasant experience.

When booking the Lavra my expectations were not high as I had seen many mixed reviews. However, all I can say is that things must have improved since last year because I had no problem with wi-fi, my room was not tatty; in fact very modern and clean. Yes it was spartan, but note this is a guesthouse and not... More

Room very basic...no tea or coffee making facilities or water in the room. Tatty. Hard uncomfortable mattress. Area not good. We were in an annex at the back of the house...across an open courtyard which was scruffy and steps were slippery. Would not return

We were very lucky to get a room in this beautiful small guest house. The beds are very soft and comfortable, even though there is a street in front of the guest house you hear nothing through the windows. The men at the reception were both very kind and friendly. We had to stay a long time in the hospital... More

Stayed here for one night which was enough. The paper was peeling off the walls in one room. The bed bases were stained and dirty in our room. The bathrooms are tiny and not great. The bed linen and towels were very clean though. Nice little roof terrace and open areas and staircase are pretty. The staff was friendly, the... More

“Wifi was very spotty. Chose room 301 if you want a room with a view. Shabby chic is kind of the vibe.”

“No lift in the guesthouse, Best are superior rooms facing lisbon from upward position looking at the terrace never too noisy.”

“Aks for a room with a view. The ones facing east, from the second floor up. The ones facing east have a view of the city. The ones facing west seemed to be bigger, and are facing the street, which is not at all busy – although there are cars passing through it. There is no A/C, but in a breezy city like Lisbon, that is not a problem in my view.”
