The hotel is situated in the middle of the historic center, so it´s closed to all main attractions. Also the famous tram no. 28 is just one street down from this hotel, so it´s easy to get the tram. Rooms are very nice with private shower and WC. The price include breakfast, so you can eat something sweet but also... More

Central location, very close to metro, tram line 28, and walking distance to some central points of interest. Nice, clean, sturdy. Good service, a little bit evasive manner, but maybe it's due to us in some way? Interesting decor, Alice in Wonderland and pinkification. Stairs are a bit of a work out after a day in the city, not for... More

My older (mid-60s) parents and I stayed in this hostel for three nights. The rooms are a bit small but Paula, one of the owners, is phenomenal and everything was clean, warm, and welcoming. Paula prepared a wonderful breakfast every morning and gave us personalized itineraries and excellent restaurant recommendations. She was also available for any questions, any time. I... More

We stayed for a week in September 2014. After researching various places online we decided to give Pensao Royal a go - it was the price and also pictures of other travellers who have visited. The location is great. You can walk anywhere from here. Be ready to walk up 3 floors to reach your room - there is no... More

The Pensao Royal was everything it said it'd be; great location, great price, great breakfast, and great advice! If you are on a budget and want a safe, clean, welcoming accommodation in Lisbon, then go to the Pensao Royal.

This was my second visit to Pensao Royal after 5 years and have to stay it was still as pleasant as the previous time. Paula is a lovely person and makes sure there is always a big enough spread at breakfast which includes cold cuts, cheese, fresh fruits and cakes. She gives very helpful travel tips especially where we can... More

This was our third stay at Pensao Royal. Paula was, as usual charming and helpful, and her quirky charming decor thankfully remains. Paula is a wonderful cook of Portuguese specialties which in the past were included at the breakfast. It was not only delicious but actually kind of an education into Portuguese food. This time while the breakfast was satisfactory,... More

This little hostel has everything you need and more! It is located conveniently close to a metro exit and is situated at the border between Lissabon’s center and the lively neighbourhood “Bairro Alto”. The colorful rooms were sufficiently large and clean but the real selling points of this little gem of a hostel are the patron Paula and her majestic... More

A nice clean B&B with a great location (really short walk to Metro Station, main shopping street and arch which you can ascend for a view of the city and walkable to most other locations in the city), and a good breakfast of fresh fruit, savoury pastries and sweet cakes. The decor was certainly unique and gave the place some... More

I showed up at the Pensao Royal Hotel on the date as reserved and guess what? No room was available for me despite my confirmation. I received no apologies, no excuses and no refund of my payment and had to leave very in great disappointing feelings. By itself, such unpleasant event should rate these premises quite low as unreliable; therefore... More
