this is an building more then 100 years old. located right on the rossio plaza, centre of lisbon. the receptionists are professional. the facilitis are not in good maintainance. the breakfast is average. you should go up stairs first and then you can get the elevator, even though you have big suitcase with you.

Nice folks at the desk but holes in upholstery, lumpy dusty pillows, old towels, grease stains on sofas, big cracks in wall and tile, sinks don't drain, toilets don't flush, dirt on walls and window sills. I could go on. Pass it up.

We had high expectations for this hotel based upon the rating, price and the photos. The first impression of the entrance to the Hotel Metropole set the tone for the decor. Small entrance on the square, with a flight of stairs to get to the small elevator. No assistance in getting luggage up the stairs to the lobby. Lobby furniture... More

Don't expect luxury on this hotel although it has its old european charm and reasonably clean. Location is great, you can take number 1 city center bus from the airport and the rossio bus station is right in front of the hotel. Bear in mind the check in counter is on the first floor with steep staircase or you can... More

Fronting Praca Dom Pedro, couldn't be more central. A perfectly satisfactory 3 star hotel. Glad that we had a relatively quiet rear room without a view; the superior front rooms were said to be very noisy with some musical event or other playing in the Square. It's worthwhile checking if any such event is on before booking. I'd definitely stay... More

This is a long overdue review from a trip taken back in 2007; Hotel was selected primarily for its location and it did not disappoint; Hotel was small but non the less clean, nothing grandeur but good; I recall generally a pleasant experience and from recent reviews it appears that it remains the same so I thought to encourage others...

Great place to stay! Within walking distance of everything in the heart of Lisbon! The view of the plaza was awesome. Since it is downtown, it does get a little noisy, however the views and location far outweigh all the noise issues. Staff was friendly, breakfast was great! I would stay here again!

I stayed in this hotel in July 2013. I got a double room facing Praca Dom Pedro IV, the heart of Lisbon (or so they say). The room and the bathroom, with a bathtub, had both ample space and high ceilings. Furniture were a bit outdated but in good condition. The standard of cleanliness was high. The views over the...

Be sure to get a room with the view to the Castle and Rossio square, it's absolutely wonderful. We were not willing to leave the room at all ) Rossio is the heart of the city, so you will be in the middle of everything. The room was quite clean, comfortable and spacious. Good breakfast, and a very friendly welcome.... More

After some of the negative reviews we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the room. We had a plaza facing room on the top floor and it was spotless. Staff were great and very helpful, they even carried our luggage up the stairs and then to the room. Great location could not be more central. The Aero bus leaves... More
