Stayed at the Britania for four nights with my partner last week. I agree with all that everyone else has written, the hotel is lovely, quiet, rooms are spacious, (although the view from our room was onto an office block), bathroom was large and shampoos, soaps etc were replenished regularly.Tea and coffee making facilities available, which is quite difficult to...

We spent only one night at this lovely hotel (and two nights a week later at its sister hotel, Heritage Avenida Liberdade) and were sorry we couldn't have stayed longer. From the charming and helpful front desk staff to the period decor, the whole experience was restful, pleasant, and luxurious. The sheets were so comfy, and the curtains made the... More

This was my fourth trip to Lisbon and the Britania is, by far, the best hotel that I've stayed in in that city. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and very comfortable with some of the trimmings, dressing gowns and slippers, of a five star hotel. I read someone's comments that the walls are thin and the air conditioning noisy... More

We stayed here for the first night of our holiday and then a couple of nights later as part of a week spent in Portugal combining city and beach. The hotel is quirky and there are lots of period details, very Poirot-esq feel to it. Rooms and bathrooms were very generous size and it did feel like a luxury hotel... More

If you want to be in the city and within walking distance of the Metro, the station and real local Portuguese cafes and restaurants you can't do better. We walked the 10 minutes to Estacao do Rossio to get the train to Sintra and 15 minutes to the Cais do Sodre station near the water to get to Cascais. Walking... More

I agree with previous post, and say no wonder this is number1, I saw this rating and was a bit sceptical but booked it, no fears, this hotel is fabulous, 50 yards from the Avenide de Liberdade but very quiet, lovely entrance with a very friendly and helpful man who took our cases to the lift.Reception was quick and easy...

Stayed here for two nights and everything was perfect! We received a complimentary bottle of port in the room witch was really nice. The room was big and spacious with a separate room with a desk and a single bed. Bathroom was marble with good toiletries. The hotel is very old and the furnishings and fixtures are out dated but...

We stayed in the Britania Hotel for four nights and had a wonderful time. There are two things a hotel absolutely must get right. The bedroom: very comfortable bed, black out curtains and a lobby area that separated us from the corridor meant we slept very well - even on the first night which is usually restless in hotels.
