The location couldn't be better - within easy reach of all the main sites and areas of interest. Only 5min from the café Brasilaria ( we visited at midnight after a late flight and there was a lovely gentle atmosphere. ) and the nightlife area of Lisbon (dead during the day). An unassuming entrance (with a different name of the... More

I stayed here in April 2014 for three nights and was really pleased with all aspects of my stay. Paula was delightful; full of useful advice on places to visit and eat etc. Would definitely stay again - very good value for money and location is a real plus. Prepare for those stairs!

Paula, our hostess was charming and very helpful. She let us drop our cases at the Pension when we arrived early and let us store them there for a few hours after we checked out. In between times she was very helpful with directions and recommendations for places to eat. She works very hard providing a very clean guest house... More

Breakfast was amazing, home made cakes and fresh fruit salad every day. The host Paula is very warm and welcoming. The room was very clean, the bed very comfortable. There... More

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
