Stayed here in February 2015 with 5 other couples. We had a great time! Slight mix up upon check in with bookings as the receptionist had bad English but got resolved eventually. The decor is seriously old here, so don't expect much. The Wi-Fi works in the lobby/bar area only, and they will tell you that themselves. The bar says... More

Fantastic location right in the middle of Baixa and very easy to get to from the airport by metro. Extremely convenient for many of the sights, and for shops and restaurants. The staff were very helpful and effortlessly able to alternate from speaking perfect English, French, Italian and Spanish. The rooms (especially the bathrooms ) seem to be stuck in... More

The hotel is very close to 2 subway stations, several bus stops and also tramway. The region around the hotel has a lot of restaurants, shops and some places to visit. The commerce square is close, and it is a beautifull place to take some pics and look to the sea and the suspension bridge. However, you have to pay... More

For us location is of prime importance on a city break, and this couldn't be better!! Yes, the décor is rather shabby, and not in a chic way, the breakfast is very simple and repetitive consisting of 2 crispy rolls and 2 sweet rolls with preserves, but this little hotel is slap bang in the centre of the Baixa /Chiado...

The Good is location & price....hotel is centrally located within walking distance of all attractions and value priced at 58 Euros a night. The Bad is Breakfast, Decor and WiFi reception....Breakfast... More

This place could use a makeover, and yet, we still liked it very much. Let's just say that considering the price, we didn't care for decoration! The Albergaria has a great location, close to Rossio and BAixa-Chiado metro stations, a few steps from the main historic streets that lead to Praça do Comércio. We couldn't ask for a better deal....

Perfect location in the middle of Lisbon. In pedestrian area, close to metro, tram and busstops. Clean small room. Old fashined design, a little bit worn out. Very friendly staff. Simple but good breakfeast included.
