Great pension in the heart of Lisbon, situated 50 m from the metro and near the Bairro Alto; from here you can visit the city by walk!Paula will welcome you in her colourful house full of butterflies and fairies: the room was good and very clean, the only thing that I didn't like so much is the bathroom which is...

First of all be sure you are in a good physical form, beacause youäll have to climb on the 3rd floor, there is no elevator. The hostel is very colourful, too much i would say on my taste. The personnal is friendly enough. rooms are very clean, but sanitary equipment is not in a good condition - everything is broken... More

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

Her dinner suggestions are impeccable, she goes out of her way to be helpful and makes reservations! We could not say enough wonderful things about Paula! The Pensao is located three full flights up, so you get your work out... The building is... 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
