A little bit dated but for value for money and location this hotel would take some beating. Staff are very friendly. If you want to stay in the centre of Lisbon on a budget then this hotel is perfect.

Didn´t expect much and that was it. Worth price I wanted to pay for just passing the nights at with having all the rest elsewere. Location in the centre of the city is great, if you prefer narrower alleys a bit louder from early morning. What I really disliked was a feeling like someone had been smoking in my room... More

Welcoming but dated hotel. Courteous staff helpful at all times. Clean en suite but thick bedspreads and curtains, plus carpet in bedrooms attract dust and the smell of cigarette ash where the No Smoking rule has not been adhered to. Unfortunately this prompted asthma symptoms, which the hotel tried to allay through additional cleaning. However, it marred the holiday.

This hotel is very good for the price and it is in the center of Lisbon. You can walk just about anywhere. The staff is very friendly and helpful. As soon as we checked in they gave us a welcome drink which was a good port wine and they also gave us a map of Lisbon and circled places of... More

For what I paid, this hotel was very good. The location is almost perfect, the only thing that lets it down is the fact that it is on the top of the hill. It is right in the centre and you can walk almost everywhere! The rooms are basic (to be expected for a 3 star hotel, I guess), but... More

The hotel is one of the best valued I have stayed in. It was a great price for its location, right in the city centre and everything was walkable. The service at the hotel was excellent, as were the cleanliness of the basic but sufficient room. A real little Jem!

I recently spent a few days at Botanico Hotel, the location is what sets this hotel apart from most as it’s in a fantastic location. Walking up the hills of Lisbon was a pleasure and walking up a hill to this hotel again was an absolute pleasure. The service was your standard hotel service, kept clean, fresh sheets and new...

I chose this hotel because of its location close to the barrio alto. We loved the fact that every time we walked up or down the hill to the hotel we noticed something else (snack bar, tapas bar, jazz club etc). The room and bathroom were clean and spacious. The staff were extremely helpful, booking taxis, reserving restaurants and giving... More

The amenities were simple, but regarding that I was in Lisbon to see sights and not to spend time in a hotel, there were everything that was needed. The room was clean, and though the hotel was close to the city centre, there wasn't much noise from the street. The breakfast was satisfactory and staff friendly.
