Great location, ideal for sightseeing and restaurants, but funky design means some practical issues. Air con - is not. Switched to heat by staff even though room was stifling! Shower leaked in all rooms, musty smell in bathroom. Fix the quirky designer issues and a great hotel.

Thank you for your comments. We try our best to offer different experiences to our guests. We regret that some issues did not work properly during your stay, so we will try harder. Let us just explain that, as to the air condicioning system, due to a sudden drop of the Lisbon’s temperature a few days before, we adapted the... More

Located right in the centre of downtown Lisbon within easy walking distance of most attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel from lobby to room had a lovely comfortable and relaxed feeling to it. I dont really understand from other reviewers about the size of the room as ours was plenty big enough and we have... More

We stayed at Browns DownTown for 5 Nights. We had never been to Portugal before and we really got to explore the whole place while here. I must say, out of all the towns we saw, we felt so lucky to have found Browns DownTown. The location is PERFECT and exactly where you want to be. Since all the buildings... More

The hotel is wonderfully located in the old part of Lisborn where the best shops and the principal historic sites and sights are to be found. It's style is very modern and somewhat minimalistic. There are few amenities offered but the rooms, though small, are well equipped. The one obstacle we found with our stay was actually accessing the hotel.... More

We appreciate your comments about our hotel. Thank you. Brown’s Downtown was conceived to be a different hotel, combining modernity, technology and comfort. Our location is a plus, in the main part of Lisbon, surrounded by all kind of transports. E.g. the metro station or the Aerobus stop are about 100 m distance. So, our guests do not need a... More

We were really happy on seeing the hotel; the rooms are great and the location is great too! It is right next to the centre and otherwise very well connected by public transport. The only problem is with the bathrooms, which has a very small shower area and the water spills out! But overall a great place, very friendly staff... More

In a nutshell, this was the best hotel room we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. For us, it ticked just about every box for what we require in a room. Fabulous location, slap bang in the heart of everything, but tucked away in a quiet side street, off the main drag, so minimal noise from revellers, bin... More

After our two week stay near Lisbon we decided to stay in the city for our last night. We had stayed in a sister property, Brown's Luxury Apartments, on a previous trip and liked it very much. But for one night we wanted a hotel. The property is in the Baixa area. The rooms were very nice and modern. What... More

We are happy that you have chosen again a Brown’s property for your stay in Lisbon. Thank you. You may call them “sister properties”, since the concept behind is similar: design and comfort. The main difference is that Brown’s Downtown Hotel has a lobby with a 24 hours reception. Just let me clarify that in the hotel, rooms do not... More

This place was awesome! As it's fairly new, the place was slick. It had a very cool and funky reception area where you could sit and chill out with free coffee (and it's good!) and wifi throughout the hotel. The rooms were decked out nicely with big TVs and Macs. The service was great - quick for checking in and... More

The excellent location of this hotel - 100m or so from the metro - is just the start.

Brown's Downtown is located in the heart of Lisbon, just a coupe of blocks from the Baixo Chiado metro station, and a little walk to several of the main restaurants, shopping, and city attractions.
