We stayed in Pensao Royal in February and were really looking forward to the great breakfasts and charming host we had read about here, but the reality was very disappointing. My biggest problem was the musty damp room- the shower had no ventilation system, and so never seemed to really dry out. The whole room seemed damp and smelly the... More

This place makes you feel like at home! The owner really takes care of you. She made a list of places for us to see, she recommended us places to eat and drink, she made reservations for us and she even reminded us that we need to leave to reach on time. She was just lovely. The breakfast is just... More

This place is wonderful it is in the centre of Lisbon but on a quiet street. It is not a 5 star hotel, but deserves 5 stars for the service you receive and the the breakfast is simply amazing. Paula cooks cakes, pastries, quiches and more fresh each breakfast. It is such a treat. Paula is so friendly, it is... More

It's difficult to put into words just how good the Pensao Royal was. It is described as a hostel, but it could not be further removed from the 'traditional hostel'. The value for money is fantastic - our room was a good size, with an en-suite bathroom and breakfast (which was phenomenal) also included in the price. The rooms are... More

Great valueformoney. The breakfast is famous and worth the compliments to be found here. Paula's advice beats any guide book and helped us see the best of Lisbon. Thanks for an amazing few days in this incredible city!

We arrived at Pension Royal address but could not see a sign for the B and B. We entered via the open, unlocked door on the street level and the women smoking on the first floor landing told us that Pension Royal was on the 3rd floor. We carried our packs and bags up an interior dank stairwell that reeked... More

On the plus side: The hotel is quirky and fun and the breakfast is amazing! Large and very comfortable room and bed. Location is excellent just down from the Metro. Quiet. On the minus side: There are a lot of stairs up to the hotel (65!). The towels were clean but smelt a bit of smoke.
