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

We had a very pleasant stay. Great Breakfast and lovely Paula runs it excellent! The Breakfast look like english high tea 😃 it is a cheap hostel with much privacy. The metro station is nearby and to cross over the station you are at the old nice neighbourhood.

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

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
