A thoroughly enjoyable stay, in a delightful residence in a charming area, slightly off the beaten track, but with handy transport links. We stayed for a couple of nights in room 6 and were impressed by the size of room and quality of furnishings and decor. Excellent value-for-money, although hotel services are limited, it suited us very well.

Spent 2 nights on new year day 2015, the hotel has an old style with carpets on the floor but the atmosphere is nice (just a bit noisy the air heating) an breakfast of acceptable quality. Conveniently located at walking distance from Chiado and Rato metro station.

We decided to visit Lisbon for two nights including New Years Eve. We looked at available hotels and chose this one for both location and price, it also had a good Trip Advisor rating. We arrived early but our room was ready for us, the room was spotless with high quality bedding and disposables. A nice touch were a couple... More

Nicely located hotel on a walking distance of the highlights in the old center of Lisbon. Nice romantic atmosphere in an old building with very friendly staff. The beds were too firm and breakfast was average. Wifi didn't work in our room (first floor)

I knew nothing about Lisbon when I planned our trip, so I was worried that this hotel was too good to be true when I saw it online. It was within our budget, fit our charm requirement, and seemed to be well located and easy to get to from the airport. When we got there I discovered all of the... More

This is a great B and B. Terrific location, lovely rooms, good value, nice staff service, but... They advertise WiFi, but it is EXTREMELY, spotty. Just keep that in mind when you are looking for a good place in Lisbon. We loved Casa de Sao Mamede, but were frustrated with this one issue. You can just go down the block... More

I rated this hotel 4, but maybe 3.5 would be more accurate. First room given wasn't great but it was changed without any fuss. Then again, I did ask for a quite room not on ground floor and that's what I got. Substitute room was on ground floor, newly refurbished and traffic noise when window open. Windows closed, there was... More

I stayed here from the 14th to the September and it was a special place. It did not feel like you were in a hotel, but in a house and I kept imagining what that would have been like. I would have loved it to be honest! The staff were so lovely and friendly, each and every one of them,... More

Nice hotel. Checkin and out: Efficient and friendly. Room: Good bed, had a good sleep. Room is more living room at home, doesn't feel like a hotel. Location: Fantastic. Easy to get there, also easy to be picked up. Overall: Very good value for your money. Friendly staff. It is not high scale, it is what you need.

The hotel is very easy to find from the Rato metro station. As you exit the stairs, look to your left. Provided a fruit vendor is not blocking the view down Rua da Escola Politecnica, you will immediately see the yellow exterior. Inside, the rooms are individually decorated and very clean. Azulejo (the blue and white tiles of Portugal) line... More
