the most important is the location, the best for Lisbon. The rooms are huge, very spascious. The breakfast is very poor, but we don't care about it. We take our breakfast in one of the two cafés located side to side to the Borges hotel: the legendary "A Brasileira" and the "Benard". We do reccomend this hotel...

Do not accept the room 321! It is a nightmare to stay there even for a night. The staff (rude enough) gave me an acceptable room for last 3 nights in Lisbon. They spoiled 24 hours from my holiday.

WORST hotel I have ever stayed in (and I've travelled all over the world). Our room was barely bigger than the bed. The maids were awful - every day they took our towels and would fail to leave us new ones, so we always had to ask for them. We even had to ask for toilet paper at one point. The shower stall is so tiny and the shower so clogged, that I fell when I simply tried to turn around in it. I hit my head on the sink pretty hard and the hotel staff did not seem to care. I asked for ice for the already-forming lumps on the side of my forehead and I was told that the best they could do was sell me a bottle of cool (not cold) water for 1 euro. The only thing good about this hotel is the location - for the amount of money we paid (about 80 euro a night - by far the most expensive we stayed in), I'd just as soon find another hotel nearby. This hotel is just AWFUL.

Awful experience! Rooms were old and the bathroom smelled extremely bad. One day the room hadn't been cleaned by 4 PM, the next day it had been cleaned but there were no towels. Breakfast is so disgusting (watery, colorless juice and coffee are stored in big self-service machines, etc.) that we decided to skip it entirely. And last... Staff was extremely rude. The hotel is well located but it is not worthy, there are other places around to stay.

More central than this is virtually impossible. Room was enormous! So was the bathroom. Everyday cleaned and clean towels. Beds were okay. Friends of ours told us in the old days this place is where the kings and queens used to stay. If you don't mind listening to some chitchat and portuguese street musicians playing at night (which we found very pleasant) than definately book this place.

L' hotel è ubicato in un'ottima posizione, e questo è il suo più grande pregio. La stanza dove noi abbiamo alloggiato era spaziosa e pulita così come anche il bagno, dotato di bidet.Un pò modesta la colazione, ma lisbona è così piena di pasticcerie deliziose che una seconda colazione può solo fare piacere.

It faces the Shiard plaza, and the Camoes plaza is the vicinity soon. It is a district where the history is felt. Therefore, it is lively until midnight. There might be a person who feels that it is annoying, too. However, Bairoalt is near, and it doesn't take as much as one minute to the station in the streetcar and the subway. The Rosshio station : for about ten minutes. It is the best for sightseeing. The cafe of Bragerara pleasant is in the next.

If you want to party in Lisbon, this is the place to stay. The location is fantastic, just around the corner from the bars and walking distance to many attractions. It is VERY noisy though if your room is on the main street. The locals stay out very late but this didn't worry us as that's what we were there to do. The rooms were very comfortable, though the staff a little indifferent. It was pretty pricey too but we were overall happy with it.

We chose this hotel for its very central location next to a metro station and close to Bairro Alto restaurants. The price to pay is the loud noise that permeates from outside through hardly closing windows. The hotel is in need of a serious refurbishment, with the breakfast room looking incongruously freshly made up. Breakfast was below average. The reception desk was willing to help when insisting.

You need to be very patient with the doors, 'cause keys are really crazy! The rooms are not very clean and the breakfast is quite poor. I mean, it's more an hostel than hotel! The position is the only really good thing, 'cause it's close to everything: you're in the heart of LISBOA. The staff is not so prepared to answer to your questions but thay're always very kind.

The furnitures occurred rather worn, the hinge of the door of the cupboard was broken making it difficult to close the door. We had booked at suite but got an ordinary room with a sofa (convertible) and one single, unconfortable chair. But the hotel is located just in the center of the old town, a big plus for people not being accustomed to public transportation. Don't forget to add 34 €/day to your daily expenses if you are going by your car, that's the fee for parking your car in the nearest parking house.

The hotel is situated in a good location. The principal inconvenient is the noise, we awoke 2 or 3 times during the night because of the noise. Another inconvenient is the cleanliness of the rooms, we saw some hairs in the bed and in the pillow. I think that if a normal hotel but the price/quality relation is very poor.

This is a clean hotel with a splendid location in Lisbon's Old Town (Bairro Alto). The breakfast is poor, just bread, butter and marmalade. The rooms look like they haven't been renovated since the early 80's. There is some noise from the street that is not at all unpleasant for someone that is used to live in a big city. The price is fair and the location is just fantastic.

The entire thing was a chaos, the door of the room was not a customer friendly, you can hear the noise of other people doing the same thing, you can not get the door to locked, it was hard to do it, we did not feel safe. Only the tv spoke portugues, there were not spanish or english tv. I won't return to this hotel EVER! Todo fue una locura, las puertas de las habitaciones no cierran bien, era una locura salir de allí pues siempre pensaba que nos iban a robar las cosas nuestras.....solo 4 canales de tv en portugues, nada en otro idioma, no me quedaré aqui de nuevo y NO LO RECOMIENDO.

The Hotel was in a perfect location, between Bairro alto and Chiado, but that was the only good thing of this accomodation. Our room was big but beds really unconfortable, and the room noisy too. Most of the employes were unkind. Breakfast was very poor and of terrible quality, the orange juice was synthetic and the coffee was of sure the worse one of the Portugal.

I took my girlfriend to Lisbon for our anniversary and we had a fantastic time. The room was very spacious and quiet (although I specifically requested for a quiet room). The staff was not the friendliest but don't let that phase you. And without a doubt, the location of this hotel is worth every euro we paid. Chiado is awesome and near plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars. I recommend this hotel without hesitation.

We leaved the hotel very early, so we couldn't have breakfast. In front of the hotel there is always a cab.
