Staff was nice and helpful. Location was great. Room was cleaned every day. Take this if you dont need any "glamour" or extraordinary while your stay. Beautiful park just near by. Beds were a bit hard for me, but maybe someone will love it.

Great location away from the hustle of the main town. Perfect start to the morning with a walk through the park in front of the hotel. All the main tourist buses start off a short walk from the hotel so not much of a problem to beat the crowds. Room 1006 was very small however clean and cosy. Bath was... More

Located near the Marques de Pombal Square overlooking the park of King EduardoVII this hotel is in the excellent location. Near the Metro station and all the sightseeing bus companies.The hotel is old and in dire need of renovation. Our room was quite small, but it had a balcony with a view of the park. The bathroom was so small.... More

This is an excellent hotel run by very helpful staff. Although it doesn't have a full blown restaurant (only does breakfast) it still deserves an excellent rating. If you can, ensure you book a room overlooking the Edward VII park for an excellent view over the city. It's in ’easy reach' (beware the seven hills of Lisbon) of several metro... More

Stayed here for 3 nights recently. Staff were efficient and friendly, easy check- in, decent breakfast. 5 min walk to Pombal Metro station. 10 mins to Avenue Liberdade. Have to mention taxi's, Bairro Alto back to Sana Rex is approx. 6 Euros, absolute bargain. Would recommend.

I stayed in Sana rex for 5 days with my mum and it's a really nice place! Location is great, it takes 5 min to metro station and 10 min by metro to the centre of the town. Rooms are clean and comfortable with balconies. Breakfast is good, and it's till 10.30 so you don't have to get up too... More

My stay at the Sana Rex recently was very pleasant and convenient. The hotel is very service oriented, and the staff is a pleasure. The room was a double with one bed and a "panoramic balcony" overlooking the park. The view was nice, and the balcony was enormous. The only drawback was that there was not a single piece of...

You can make it easier through the park. So it' s not a problem. You can reach the main square and the river in... More
