A characterful hotel in an interesting old building. We enjoyed the location in a non-touristy area and the view from our room over the roofs of Lisbon. Breakfast fine for the price. Not recommended if you can't climb stairs as no lift and the hotel is at the top of a steep hill. Bathroom had been renewed but there were some faults with the plumbing.

Our so called family room was small with a big bathroom and clean. The hotel is not far from city center, nice little local restaurants around, quiet surroundings. The "continental breakfast" was not worth the money and the coffee was brown water. But if you just need a place to sleep, this hotel may be the right choice. I would not recommend it to families with small children, because it's not allowed for children to make noise in the room in the evening, but everyone else seems to be allowed to move as noisily as he likes on the stairs and smash the doors at will. Because we had little expectations we had only little disappointments, so the stay was okay and we maybe may return.

Excellent service from the staff. Room not that spacious but clean and comfortable. Beware, no lift, the 4th floor is high up there! Beware if using a taxi from the airport. They tend to increase the price. Normal price is around 12€. In the evening, avoid eating around place Pedro IV. It's over expensive. Ask the hotel staff for a good restaurant.

Atmospheric building, much more interesting than a big block hotel (although if frills are more important take one of those). Personal care of reception staff was very nice. I had a large room (triple) on the 2nd floor for me alone. It was spartan in feel, which I liked, and so was the bathroom, but there the single sachet of shampoo could be improved... by supplying soap as well, for instance!

The location is great, on a relatively quiet street. The staff member available upon check-in was very friendly. Unfortunately the room that I was staying in did not resemble what I had seen online. Whether this is because the hotel is currently under renovation I do not know. Although the view was great (I was on the top floor), the paint peeling considerably from the wall over the bed (it looked like there was mold in the wall?). In terms of the furniture/facilities, the bed was not particularly comfortable, the light over the sink in the bathroom did not work, the towels had seen better days, and the water in the shower was ice cold. I think once renovations are finished that there will be a better match between price and quality.

Lavra is a fantastic guest house! we loved our stay there. the staff was super friendly and helpful, giving tips on restaurants etc. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and individually decorated, combination of modern and old fashioned. There's no breakfast but there were cheap cafes in the neighbourhood.

lavra guest house must cater for some more facilities--even a glass of water is not possible since they have only those low grade plastic disposable glasses. i think they charge too much for a place like this --the room was decent -clean but there was nothing else. location is good but one definitely needs to be told to take a taxi from the airport or else it is difficult to reach as the ascent is too steep! one wants a cup of coffee / tea / cold drink but nothing is available not even for a price. we enjoyed the location as we were in the city centre & that enabled us to watch all the fun & be a part of the local crowd. the guest house would be a great place if they could provide us some facilities like soft drinks / hot drinks or at least keep some provisions like glasses & a kettle in the room for guest to make their own --its a small facility but very important.

The "lift" (small tramway) was under repair in May 09. So quite challenging to make the last hill after a long day ... but overall a very nice, very clean guesthouse. Myriam was extraordinarily friendly with a good sense of humour. We will be back there,for sure! For very early reseravations: Lavra has a penthouse!

Lavra Guest House is a former cloister and therefore an interesting and ancient house, nicely refurbished and with a great view if you get a room with a balcony. The service is friendly and the only thing I was a bit annoyed with was the black colour of the bathroom and the very poor quality of the beds. But in terms of the price and the service as well as the view you get for your money, these things are certainly tolerable.

It is a pity the room was not decorated in the lobby style. Actually the room we got (as requested on the last floor to have a city view) was tiny and would need some renovation as regards the paint and bathroom equipment. And the view was from the bathroom window.Rather dull room but nice staff.

I liked the Guest House Lavra however I think that style overcame some basic requirements in rooms - such as hooks for towels, bins etc. Also I think the Guest House is still in process of being renovated - public areas very good but rooms I think would vary. Good location, clean but more basic than had imagined. Also check out needs to be improved - had an early flight and the 8am reception promised was running late so we were very tight on time. Otherwise happy to recommend for a one or two night stay in residential area of Lisbon.

Pour ce premier séjour à Lisbonne, où nous somme resté 3 jours, nous avons trouvé cette Guest House très bien située géographiquement. En plein centre de la ville et de tous ces endroits de flanerie. Nous avions une chambre Triple avec pour seul point faible la douche minuscule et peut être un manque de climatisation pour compenser le fournaise de la salle de bain. L'accueil fut très correcte avec un bonne disponibilité à la réception.

Clean rooms but very small bathrooms (not for pregnant women !) Receptionists all right as long as there's no problem : Had no bedside table lamps working, managed to get one eventually replaced, but all this done in a way to make me feel that I was a rather demanding customer to ask for such a "favour" ! The next day I asked the same receptionist for help to find a place to buy stamps and never got it ! I found this all rather unprofessional !

The guest house is located quite in the center but on a hill so you should not be physically handicapped. The rooms are small but have a modern style. We had a nice little balcony with a great view! But there are no TV or radio (we didn't miss it, however). Not far from the place is a tiny supermarket and there are some small restaurants where a lot of locals spend there evenings and where you can have local food for a fair price and some good wine.

This guesthouse is clean, modern and centrally located. It is basic - you won't find any shampoo in the bathroom or a TV in the bedroom, but for the price it was an excellent bargain. It is located at the top of a brilliantly authentic, but rather steep road (not for the unfit, especially after a hearty meal and some drinking). They do serve breakfast (not included in the price), however we went out every morning - just a few steps down the road on the right hand side was a good snack bar to have some croissants and tea. When you arrive at the aiport ask the tourist information desk for a map and get the guy to point out the street, and he'll tell you which bus stop to get off at. Get on the aerobus and it's a pretty short, if somewhat steep, walk from the stop. If you've got some heavy suitcases it might be an idea to take a taxi.

The guest house can be highly recommended - it is situated in "real" Lisbon surroundings on the top of Lavra hill, in a nice old house. By foot or after a nice trip with the Lavra elevador you reach the city centre in 5 min. The staff is very friendly and every guest is welcomed with a glass of the famous Lisbon cherry liqueur .... Lavra guest house is the best place to stay while visiting wonderful Lisbon!

Very nice place to stay. It's well situated, near metros, but on top of a hill (restaurants are all down the hill, and it's very very hard to climb!) Hopefully there's a tramway, but it closes at 9:00 pm. Excellent breakfast in the "pastelaria" 10 meters down the street: very cheap, and very kind!
