The location is superb, just next door of the Sé and in Alfama. However, the price is a bit high for what you get. It is not superclean (bathroom) and some rooms are very very noisy. The personel is friendly and breakfast ok. It is a good hostel, but a bit cheaper (it was 20 euro pp for triple without... More

In the Alfama district right beside the Cathedral and short distance from the Castle with bars and restaurants right beside. There was a lot of life there when I stayed for two nights. The room was comfortable and clean but not luxurious. I would certainly go back.

Not the best I have stayed in but then I wasn't paying five star money, I got what I paid for and I was happy with that, the room was clean and linen changed ok, the only fault that I could make with the room was that it needed more ventilation as the carpet coming out of the bathroom gets... More

We have staid for 5 nights in this hotel. The rooms where neat and the owners are extremely friendly, they will help you with everything. The price is very reasonable, sertainly with the location. Including in the price is a breakfast, also basic but nice. Then again, if you're looking for something chique you have to go elswhere. But we... More

Very well located, you can touch the Sé, very good price BUT the rooms are really run down. Facilities are in very bad condition, especially the bathroom. I would not recommend this place unless you have a very tight budget.

We have spent 4+2 nights in this wonderful Pensao in July 2009. If you look for something modern, trendy and party-place then look for something else, probably in Barrio Alto. If you look for a cosy place where you can feel the caring but being free as well then Pensao Sao Joao da Praca is for you. The staff is... More

like others, I suggest you go for the cheap rooms with communal bathrooms. Our accommodation with bathroom en suite was not worth the extra money as the shared facilities are better - we suffered the unpleasant smell of drains in the bedroom and, as the bath did not drain away, we couldn't use the shower. When we pointed out to... More

This comfortable pension is very clean and well run with helpful staff. The location is excellent...on a quiet street but only about a 5 minute walk to the main strip. 10 minute walk to Barrio Alto bars. We stayed in a double room with private bath. It's a little worn out and not fancy, but very comfortable and clean and... More

First of all, it's a pension, not a hotel. Paying 30 euros for a double room in the very centre of the old district of Lisbon at the weekend in summer when virtually everywhere is full doesn't mean you can expect 5-star luxury. Having said that, it's across the street from the back of the cathedral (tourists all enter at... More

Charming guesthouse with large, high-ceilinged rooms, in a good location (behind the cathedral, making it easy to direct taxi drivers, and on a tram route). Excellent value for money. Very clean. Not all reception staff speak English - afternoons and evenings are better.
