The hotel is misplaced on Tripadvisor. It is just next to Rossio square. You can't do better for location. Our room (201/202) was clean, quiet but very gloomy. A room in a higher floor would maybe have been a bit brighter. The bedding was nice & firm. There was no staff to be seen during all our stay. Really had... More

The location is THE BEST, no doubt about that - the location alone makes this an excellent choice. It's just a half minute walk from the Rossio square, which is where all the magic of the city happens. The room (I was in 306, ensuite) was bright and newly renovated with ikea furniture, and had a balcony, which is great.... More

First, the location is amazing. Just across the street from Rossio station, down the street from the train station to Sintra (which is a must see day trip), around the corner from the main attractions and buses, and walking distance to Barrio Alto. Second, the room is clean. However, the staff is so unhelpful and service so poor that it... More

Although the location is central and good we had a very bad experience staying in this hotel. 1. We were told that we have to pay the total amount in advance. We were surprised because everytime we have booked and stayed in hotels , the total amount was taken at the end of the stay. 2. Once payment was completed,... More

We booked a double room with a private bathroom at DownTown Guest House through HRS but after we had paid in full on check in (a big mistake) we were given a key to a room that had a shared bathroom. So we went down to reception and asked why we had a shared bathroom when we had quite clearly... More

Stayed for 3 nights in October and was pleasantly surprised by my entire experience - the convenient and quiet location, pleasant staff, nice amenities and comfortable room... and all at such a wonderfully affordable rate! I would highly recommend the Downtown Guesthouse.

This hotel is in the perfect location. It's one block behind Rossio Square, but still quiet and calm. The rooms are clean and cheap. The only downside was our shower, that left a small pool on the floor every time we or our neighbors showered. For the price, location and staff though, it was definitely worth it.

We stayed at Downtown Guesthouse for 4 nights in August 2012 and we found it a very confortable place to visit Lisbon. The hotel is situated in a very quiet street next to Praca Dom Pedro IV (Rossio). The rooms are clean and renovated. The staff is very kind and helpfull. Strongly recommended!

Couldn't have asked for a better location. It is situated at 1 min walk to the Rossio square. All the touristic areas like Baixa, Chiado, Alfama, are at walking distance. The rooms were clean and new. As, we stayed in room with shared bathroom, we carried our own towels and shower gel with us. But, that was not at all... More
