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

This place was just OK. Location was excellent but that was about all it had going for it. Internet not available in any of the rooms so had to be used in the bar/breakfast area. This area was dominated by ripped brown vinyl and slumping chairs. Poor lighting. Breakfast was two bread rolls and tea or coffee.The beds were hard.... More

I stayed in the hotel with my girlfriend for 4 nights during my first trip to Lisbon in August 2013, and I can recommend this hotel to everybody who wants: - a cheap hotel; - in perfect location; - with clean rooms; and - with very pleasant employees. The hotel is not the newest one, and the interior looks a... More

First of all I would recommend you read "Annieodublin's" post 15 nov 2012 - says it all. Getting from the airport by aerobus couldn't be easier as the stop is just outside the airport exit and a little to the right. Get off at Rossio square and it's a less than 5 minute walk to Insulana. The hotel, although a... More

The location, staff and price can't be beat. Sure, it could use a major facelift (the rooms have very dated furniture, a bit of a musty smell (just open the windows), and felt I needed to wear slippers on the floor). The common area is dreadful with leatherette pieces and velvet wallpaper. That is all I say for the negative.... More

Location is pretty much unbeatable - few mins walk to Baixa/Chiado metro station so both Bairro Alto and Old Town are literally minutes away. The reasonable price of a room also makes this a good choice for Lisbon. But the hotel itself is old and not extremely well kept; water in the shower only warm which was fine in May... More

I've read reviews about this place that put down many aspects of it but honestly, given what we were expecting, I was really surprised. Is it a modern, sleek hotel that caters to your every whim? Absolutely not. But it was clean and comfortable and ideally situated. They must read their reviews because some of the things that I'd read... More
