Design - Stylish & Retro in its room and the lobby. Really love this! Rooms were comfortable, spacious. The bathroom was also clean and spacious. So were the amenities and towels provided. A good room can really help to give you a good rest especially in Lisbon given the constant uphill walks. The mac inside the room was helpful but... More

My husband and I stayed three nights at Brown's Downtown hotel and we loved it! First – location! In the center of Chiado, 2 min walk to the metro, 5 min walk to restaurant, café and off course shopping! It's also 10 min walk to Bairro Alto. Second- the room. Such a unique 20th design with everything you can possibly... More

We stayed for a total of 3 nights at this boutique hotel. Bearing in mind we knew we weren't going to spend too much time indoors, we selected it based on it's central location. We were very pleased with how close the hotel was to the main high streets - approximately 5-10 minutes walk to plenty of restaurants and bars... More

Excellent location, very attractive decoration inside, a lot of Apple gadgets in the rooms (IPad, Mac...). Upper floor has nice views from the windows. The subway is 4-5 mins away. All major attractions in the city center are very close.

I had booked this hotel for one night (fortunately) and I was glad to escape. My room which was a small double was certainly small. It was also claustrophobic with no wardrobes etc. It only had a rail to hang clothes on. A

A hotel in a great location for visiting central Lisbon with easy access from the metro and local buses and trams. It has very friendly and helpful staff and the lobby and bedrooms are crammed with lots of cutting-edge technology which is available for guests to use. Everything is clean and well looked after. However, the bedrooms are small and... More

What a great find! This is a great hotel if you're going on a city break to Lisbon and you want to be in the middle of everything! Everything is within walking distance. The hotel itself has such a great feel to it. The bedrooms ooze class and sophistication with a modern feel. The iPad, docking station, Apple Mac computer,... More

We stayed at Brown's for 5 nights and had a street side view on the top floor... It was perfect! The hotel was clean, unique and in a great location. We walked to do most of our explorations of the city, but it was close to the tram stop and metro for the days we wanted to venture farther. The... More

We stayed only one night in Brown's Downtown but it was awesome. The location couldn't be any better. Right at the heart of the city and very close to Bairro Alto area as well. The hotel can be easily missed from the street as there are no large signs or anything so pay attention when arriving. The reception area is... More
