4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I'd recommend the hire of a taxi from the airport to the hotel, it was only 11 euros for a 20 mins drive and saved all the hassle of tube or bus with cases. We also used the sightseeing buses for 2 days which we could hop on and off at the sightseeing spots. It was quite cold when we... More

Stayed on a short city break at end of October 2014. Staff friendly and welcoming and couldn't fault them in any way for being customer focussed. Room was fine -everything worked well - bathroom was a little small but again it all worked and was clean and fresh - hotel wi-fi was good and no charge. Breakfast was always busy... More

Excellent location for this hotel, near Lisboa downtown, near Bairro Alto both walking distance, and even not too far from Estadio da luz (with taxi!). Overlooking the Parque Eduardo VII, would recommend it for staying at Lisboa for a reasonable price. Breakfast is nothing special maybe better to eat somewhere else and try different meals on the streets of this... More

Room was nice and clean, hotel is very close to the center so the traffic was a bit loud, we could only sleep with closed windows. Breakfast was okay. Receptionists were all rude. Anyway it worth the price.

I have been using The Sana Rex for a great number of years for my guests and friends wanting to visit Lisbon. Why? Because its friendly and helpful. Its also a stroll away from everything in the city center. There is a good chance that you find a place to park your car in a safe way just outside. Easy... More

Excellent staff, perfect location for sightseeing, quiet district, very good breakfast, great terrace with unforgettable view (9-th floor)! Wi-Fi is very good. Only 1 problem - one elevator for 10 floors, but is not big problem

A good quality hotel close to metro and city centre. Our room was a good size and had a balcony with a view over the park. Breakfast is good. Wifi worked well in our room. Staff were polite and helpful.
