It was very good moments spend in this beautiful place and the terrace have a amazing view over the city. Beyond the new concept of hosting the service was very likable. Congratulations and kind regards to all

Stayed at The House July 20-24 - apart from the initial confusion when we did not ring the right bell - it was a marvellous place to stay - easy tram ride to downtown - and not a bad walk ! Great views from the wonderful balcony - and everyone there was so helpful - especially Ana - knows where... More

Attention anyone traveling to Lisbon...book your stay at TheHOUSE! What a fantastic place in a perfect location! Pardon all the exclamation points but once you stay here, you'll see what I mean. Ana, who greeted us, is/was like a tour guide. She knows all the places, restaurants, etc. Francisco, the owner, is an incredible host. If anyone wants specifics, please... More

Dear Jeff G, Thank you so much for your enthusiastic review! I have had many great reviews over tha past 4 years but I think it is the first time ever that a guest likes staying here so much that he is publicly available to answer potential guests questions! It was great having your family here, I hope you enjoyed... More

This stunning B&B created by the warm, open, and funny Francisco Carvalho, was one of the best parts of visiting Lisbon. Located on a quiet street near Estrela Basilica in a residential, tree-lined area of the city, it’s truly a haven. Walking up the street, seeing the non-descript building, you have no clue what is waiting for you five flights... More

Dear Simpson7, Just finished reading your lovely review. Thank you so much! After a recently posted review, I was certainly in need of a moral boost and finding out that I am "open, warm and funny" was certainly helpful! I was glad I got to meet you in person this time around and just realised that you had already posted... More

We stayed here for 4 days at the end of June. We had never been to Lisbon before and fell in love with it, and I think it was largely because of our experience at The House. The House is just outside the tourist area in a more residential neighbourhood that has wonderful non-touristy restaurants and a lovely feel. I... More

The first impression as we arrived at the guest house was the outside of the building; a very old, 1980s style building but with a view of the Basilic. The guest house was on the 4th floor and we were secretely hoping that things would improve once we entered the house. In fact, it just got worse. They were tidying... More

Dear Belledebbie, First and foremost, I cannot let your claim that it does not look like the pictures stand because it is not even remotely true. I usualy start by apologising for the things that don't go so well but, this time, I cannot. We do not have a single picture on our website/tripadvisor page taken by professional photographers, nor... More

Loved this place and would have happily extended our one night trip from Faro. In a peaceful well situated street with very nice rooms amazing terrace and a friendly efficient management team. Booking very straight forward followed by excellent communications. Restaurant and shopping recommendations proved to be very informed. Breakfast healthy and plentiful. All good - many thanks.

Travelled to Lisbon recently and stayed for 2 nights at the house. The service from the staff is amazing. I had communications from them before I arrived asking what is my time of arrival. They were very helpful in terms of what to see. The location of the hotel is on a quiet street near the Estrella church. The rooms... More
