We stayed here for one night after visiting two festivals in the North of Portugal. It was okay - the rooms are clean and comfortable but VERY old fashioned. We had just been camping for 11 nights so anything by comparison was a luxury! The hotel itself needs some tender love and care. The location is great for a short... More

this is the best hotel you can get with a low price and strategic location. no need for any metro or bus just stalk around and you will find most of the touristic places. the r furniture is outdated but the room is clean. the breakfast is average, the same every day and the bread is great

How to get here? From airport take the bus to Rossio Square. If you are facing the square turn right and walk a couple of blocks to the Elevator Santa Justa, then walk another block and turn left. There is a Pop Art inspired café close by and it is located above a wedding shop in Baixa. Location This is... More

Yes the décor is from the 70th (if not 60th) and the place is slowly falling apart, the furniture is old, sometimes you can hear your fellow travellers rustling in the room next door, but... You can't beat the location, you get a bed and hot shower with daily change of towels. Rooms are of decent size. Double glazed windows,... More

I was looking for a place which offers me the old quarters of Lissbon in walking distance. It should be a more old style place which could give the feeling of traveling in the sixties. Albergaria Insulana gave me exactly what I was looking for. People who don´t like worn out rooms aand a very basic breakfast will not be... More

Great little hotel in a fantastic central location everything on your doorstep, yet remarkably quiet at night. Amazingly helpful staff,couldn't praise them more they looked after me superbly and that was most appreciated. The room was very basic and décor throughout was old fashioned but for somewhere to bed down for a couple of nights it was ideal and cheap... More

PROS: Great position, the best possible to visit the city. Cheap for being so central. Reception 24h. CONS: old building, extremely old furniture, carpet and bathroom (with semi-broken wc cover). The room smells of smoke; old and dust, even if you leave the window opened for days. We asked for a double bed and we got 2 single beds. The... More
