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

As other people have said, it isn't an amazing hotel, but it's in a great location and is still a good hotel. It is also easy to walk to a lot of interesting places. We stayed here as part of a Groupon deal so not sure how much it cost. Free wifi is always a plus too.

The hotel is a little dated from the outside but once inside you can see that it's taken care of fine. I mean I wouldn't say there's anything to write home about but it's good for the price and the staff is very friendly. My room had a bidet soo that's a win. We also had a bathtub that my... More

We purchased the stay at the Botanico as part of an airfare/hotel package offered by European Destinations/Solar Tours (which I highly recommend for European trips). Yes, the hotel is located up the hill from Alegria park, but is only a short walk from the Avenida da Liberdade and old downtown Lisbon. It is also conveniently located from the Avenida metro...

I stayed at this hotel last month with a friend, it's a decent hotel, albeit a little dated which I did expect due to the pictures online. So the only issues I had was 1. heater in our room wasn't working, despite calling one of the staff to fix/switch it on - he said the air will warm up in... More
