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.

The room at the hotel was okay, but smaller then expected, but had a good size of bathroom with a tub. The bed were comfatable, and there was cable, the view from the balcony was beautiful with a view over the park, and centrum. we had just been to a festival, and wanted to get all of our clothes cleaned,...

Having read the positive reviews on this site, my girlfriend and I booked this hotel for our week's stay in Lisbon. From the start, we were unimpressed by the unwillingness of the reception staff to manage anything more than rude grunting by means of welcome, and they neglected to give us the wifi code which was supposed to be attached...

The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is that the Sana Rex hotel might not seem "excellent" to all travelers - but if you are in the same category as me, an experienced US traveler visiting for business or a conference, I would rate this hotel as a 5 star. I was not originally booked in the... More

We've been here last weekend, for a family trip (5 adults). We booked in advance by comparing different hotels, this one had good prices, continental breakfast and was near public transport. Well, the hotel definitely was good. Big rooms (unfortunately most of them do not have a nice view), bad and shower (hot and nice), air conditioning, safe and towels.... More

Spent 7 nights at Sana Rex. A really great hotel for the price we paid, had room on 10th floor with what must be the best views of Lisbon from any hotel. The staff were really helpful and could not do enough for us.
