    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

    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
