Ahhh... SANA Rex, such a mixture of positive and, well, somewhat less than positive experiences. LOCATION: not bad but not the best. It is a 10 minute hike uphill from the nearest metro station. Getting to Alfama or the business district is not too bad, but not very convenient either. However, it is right next to Parque Eduardo VII (check... More

Only stayed here for 1 night due to an early morning flight home at the end of our Iberian adventure. Very friendly reception staff and easy check in. Didn't really make use of the bar etc but was easy to use the Internet and print off our boarding cards. Very smart decor. Our room was on the front and had... More

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
