I was recommened to stay here by someone who had held their wedding reception here several years ago. It is indeed a stunning property. Reminds me of some of the paradores in Spain. We only stayed one night but twice during our stay found the service in the courtyard/restaurant area totally non-existent. There just simply weren't enough staff working. They... More

York House is a perfect location for either a peaceful stay or as a place to stay if you want to go on partying late. Lovely hotel with graceful and very helpful staff. The decor is a bit run down but it's part of the charm. I would stay here again and recommend it my friends too.

I am really sorry but the hotel has to be renewed. The status of the bathrooms of my room was terrible. Old and not so clean, there were also some ants . The location is nice but it could not be considered for sure a 4 stars hotel. To reach the lobby there are 50 steps without any lift!!! The... More

This is tough one to write. I have stayed at York House 3-4 times in the past 5 years. It's an old converted convent, authentic and characterful - in a good location just a short walk from the city centre. It has never been a model of good service, facilities or catering, but the building and courtyard more than compensated... More

Once you have climbed a long staircase to the central courtyard (there is no lift), you feel you are in an oasis of peace in the city. Yet this is a surprising quarter of the city. During the day, the trams and buses take you everywhere you need to go but they stop at about 9pm. So if you want... More

Enjoyed our first stay ( 4 years ago) so much we decided to come back again. This time the service is not so good and the staff don't seem very interested. Breakfast is good - an extensive buffet - but not quite as good as it was before. Bedrooms are air conditioned. Our room looked down onto the courtyard garden... More

I was here from the 3rd-5th April during a business stay. The service was outstanding as I had a lot of difficulties with my work, and they were so kind to help me;) The food at the restaurant was delicious! And the breakfast kept me going the entire day:) Would definitely come back :)

We stayed 4 nights and had a wonderful visit. We loved the atmosphere and the staff were excellent: they were good humoured, efficient and very keen to ensure that we had a good time. We had planned to eat out every night, but the Manager was so good at introducing us to a very good range of dishes and excellent... More

My husband and I held our afternoon cocktail reception as part of our wedding day at The York House hotel. The whole event was held outside in the beautiful courtyard under the palm trees. Our guests were very impressed with the presentation of the food and drink and the attentiveness of the staff - the whole afternoon was delightful. Since... More

Went at 20h to Yorkhouse, which has a beautiful courtyard restaurant. Waiter only spoke Portuguese, other one told the restaurant was full. Outside ( quite nice weather still ) they didnt wanted to serve food, only drinks. not even snacks or a sandwich. They couldnt explain why said "its like that" in a complete unpolite way...never had that in Lisbon.... More
