Hotel is on the smaller size but had excellent breakfast (free via Jetsetter) and serviceable wifi. Staff was courteous, interesting/clean accommodations with quirky design -- we had one of the Zen rooms, which was clean and water pressure was decent.

This hotel is located right in the thick of things, downtown in the Rossio-Baixa area and walking distance from the Praca do Comercio and Chiado. We could stand on our tiny balcony and look straight down the pedestrian street, past the arch and to the ocean. We stayed on the Zen Floor (302) so the decor was calming. The room... More

Having looked at many places to stay we chose the IDH and we're so glad we did. Perfect central location, close to many sights, trams stops, bars & restaurants. Hotel is small and there aren't loads of facilities but it had everything we needed. Restaurant was fun and great decor. Breakfast was brilliant with loads of options; get there early... More

This is a small hotel with clean, modern rooms and bathrooms; very helpful staff, great breakfast; excellent location. Walking distance to many shops, restaurants and sites. I plan to return to Lisbon and I will stay here again.

Great location and excellent service staff all around, from the hotel car driver, front desk and bell boy. Everyone spoke excellent English and delivered 5star level of service for this boutique hotel. Will certainly stay here again when we visit Lisbon next time.

Rave reviews of this hotel brought us to book this rather than go five star. Its a nice hotel, a bit quirky, great staff but I didn't get the wow factor lots of others were reporting. The rooms are small but manageable and breakfast was good if not great, mainly because the hot section was very limited although the actual... More

This hotel is in one of the best locations in the center of Lisbon. Easy walk to most attractions, right by the train station to Sintra. The members of the staff were very helpful and accommodating. There are a variety of rooms and views. Ask for a room with a view of the square, we were on the third floor... More

We booked the room with interior view and this didn't rhyme with me. I felt imprisoned but my husband didn't really mind. Available space in the room was all right, as was bathroom space. Lovely details in every corner, funny accents everywhere. Breakfast great quality. Nice treat: a small fruit snack was delivered to our room every night around 18:00.... More

The staff is what gets my high rating. The hotel was just o.k. In my opinion. We were upgraded to the only room with a full balcony located on the 4th floor. I had emailed the hotel prior to landing and asked for the balcony room and they kindly obliged. Not sure if it was my email or my gold... More

This hotel really sets the mood for Lisbon - its a perfect little Boutique hotel in the perfect location. Close to the beach/ocean and around great sights/restaurants. The staff themselves are beyond amazing - I emailed them a day before checking in with questions on early check in and they were very helpful on the matter. Breakfast is awesome! We... More
