Being welcomed by Adrianne was a unique experience, after five minutes we felt so at home. Both Groscha (a little unsure about name, sorry) and Adrienne are perfectly tireless in their ambition to give you the best service possible. The B&B is quiet in spite of its' extremely central location, everything is fresh and clean and feels supercomfy and safe.... More

There's no neon-lit frontage to this splendid city base. There's virtually no signage either - just a tiny plaque on the doorbell cluster of its Rua Sao Nicolau doorframe. No 23 isn't hard to find, however - it says 23 above its huge wooden door next to a medical supplier with a window display offering bed pans and footcare gadgets... More

We had a lovely stay here and were completely inspired by the artistic details and style. It has a homey feel that feels like you are in a friends home. Upon arrival Adrien made us feel comfortable, pulled out the local map and indicated the "must see" spots for the city, including the best pastries with real egg and butter,... More

We had a really enjoyable stay at Artbeat. Staff were so helpful and ensured we got the most out of our short time in Lisbon. Our room was really funky and colourful (Andy Warhol) and it is in a great location. It is a bit noisy (outside - but part of the experience!) but I'd certainly recommend staying here. Other... More

Stayed in three different hostels in Lisbon and this was by far and away my favourite. The welcome was great and the staff were very helpful, giving us a map, pointing out good places to visit and even providing a list of great vegetarian places to eat. They really know their stuff! Hostel was well equipped with 2 shared bathrooms... More

This small (5 room) guesthouse is in the heart of the Baixa district of central Lisbon, only a few minutes walk to bus, tram and metro stops, Alfama, and Barrio Alto. Each room is decorated in the style of a famous painter. Our room (the Hearst Room), had a sitting area and a small balcony. The large double bed was... More

This is a brilliant quirky hostel NOT an hotel. No room service No TV in your room No en suite bathrooms. Once you've got over that you can start to really enjoy the place. It's like being loaned a room in a big house by one of your friends who happens to be a mad but talented painter. There are... More

This place is a delight. The rooms are fab and the owners are so helpful. The central location is brilliant and it is fantastic value for money. If you can, pick the Picasso room but they are all great. Gosia looked after us fabulously and kept the whole place spotlessly clean. Watch out for her food recommendations though. She has... More
