Lisbon is located on 7 hills which means that wherever you stay, it's likely to require an uphill or downhill walk. Hotel Botanico is well located for access to a variety of areas and has a wine bar (250 varieties!) just a couple of doors up the hill. Hotel facilities are good - this is a true 3* hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights in march 2015. We were welcomed with a drink an a chat, all very friendly. We received the a room on the top (5th) floor and it was spacious, very clean and it had a nice view. The rooms were cleaned thoroughly every day. The location is amazing. It is on top of a... More

Stayed here with five male friends as part of big birthday celebrations which was equivalent to a stag do I guess. It's a good location and perfectly functional, but would not be somewhere I stayed with my girlfriend as it was pretty old-fashioned and fusty. Was OK for the price and the purpose of the trip to Lisbon.

This is a very basic hotel, with not-so-nice rooms, and clunky furniture. It would not take much to make the rooms look nice. Also, I reserved (so I thought) a queen (double) bed, and got two singles. "that is jut a suggestion" i was told by the staff, so no argument off we went to separate beds. At any rate,... More

This the third time that we have stayed in this hotel. It is up a hill from the city centre and further up is the Bairro area with night life. There is limited free parking at the door. Perhaps its a little dated but there is always a friendly welcome. Our room (52) on the top floor had a view... More

I am just back from a weekend break in Lisbon. We stayed at Hotel Botanico. Great location, breakfast was great. This was my first visit to Lisbon, it's a lovely city, the weekend wasn't long enough to see all the attractions. We took a day trip to Sintra, this was fantastic

This is what I would call an "average" hotel. The location was good in the sense that it was very close to the Metro stations and a lot of restaurants. The hotel staff seemed very disinterested, but one older man who worked there was very nice. The room was small, stuffy and the bed was like sleeping on a rock.... More

I could have given this hotel 5 star had it not been for the staff's service. We had a room on the top floor with spectacular view on both sides, so we were happy! The hotel is located near the centre of Bairo Alto, so it's very convenient to walk around to discover the neighbourhood and the city. It's also... More

We were very, very happy with our stay at Botanico. The staff were all friendly, helpful and accommodating. Carolina gave us great advice on places to go and how to get there. Rooms are simple but clean. A little bit colder in the room than we are used to but lots of blankets were available. The location is perfect. Just... More
