We arrived for one evening at the hotel. Our greeting was extremely abrupt and the owner was quite snobby and rude. This was meant to be our treat evening. Instead we got very vague directions to a really poor restaurant. The room itself was fine, but not luxurious. The guesthouse we had stayed in all week (half the cost) was... More

Hello and thank you for finding the time to write a comment. Please note that your room was not a suite but a simpler double room at a very affordable price but obviously a lot more expensive than any of the multiple hostels in the area. Your luggage was carried to the room for you and you were given an... More

I lived in Lisbon for two years, and I think this is the best hotel for its value one could find in a nice part of the city. Just steps from the Castle Sao Jorge entrance and down the block from the most beautiful miradouro in the city (overlook with a plaza and outdoor terrace restaurant/bar) the location is excellent,...

Lovely little hotel very close the the castle. Super friendly staff, very clean and an spacious room (suite 6). The room decor was very cool, lovely original art and very well though out. Breakfast was very good, buffet style, but a lovely selection. The hotel is near the top of a hill but that just makes the views even better.... More

Great room, great breakfast, great hosts. The staff at the hotel are great, and always ready, willing and able to help with advice about where to go and what to do. On the last night there the owner/manager got us a great table at a fantastic restaurant he frequents and is little known to other than locals--had the best meal... More

Nice little hotel in charming and central part of lisbon. Hotel's atmosphere and decoration may not be as nice and refined as the impression given in the hotel's pictures, pity as upgrading some of the basic furnitures and paints could have made a real difference given the settings and location. Room size as announced seems to a large extend overestimated..Decoration... More

Hello and thank your for your comment. Please note all the art at the hotel is original modern art and not copies, as you'll find in most cases. We have different decoration and style in every room, so forming your opinion based on one photograph on the internet is a bit tricky, and our idea of the hotel concept is... More

Very nice hotel, well situated near the castle and old town or down town 10 min walking. Clean and comfortable rooms with a little view to the river. The staff are very friendly. The only minus is the breakfast a little expensive regarding the offer not so great, without hot food and few choices. An advice: portugal is rich in... More

Hello and thank you for your review. Breakfast menu is normally determined by what our guests request: that's how muffins made their appearance. We normally include various items from traditional portuguese pastry, depending on whether or not it's logistically possible to get them in time for breakfast to the Castle area. Obviously some guests are having issues with local food... More

They were a few amenities missing from what you would expect from a 4star hotel: no minibar, no internet in the room .. They didn't have any maps on the first day of our arrival which was disappointing as we wanted to check our whereabouts. We were also given a room on the 1st floor while our booking stipulated we...

Hi and thanks for taking the time to write a review! We are going to rework room types/definitions for all our web pages in 2014 so that people are more aware of what they're booking and how their accommodation is going to look like. It's strange there were no maps at the front desk, we'll investigate what went wrong. In... More

Hotel is well presented / clean and the staff are very friendly and all speak English. For a four star hotel it did have some bits missing. Bed was very hard and there was no minibar in the room.

Hello and thank you for the review/suggestions. With mattresses/beds, it's a bit tricky to find the right solution: some guests find them either too soft or too hard; too small or too large. We can always move people to a different room in case they're having trouble with their original room, all you need to do is communicate to the... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this very attractive boutique hotel in the Alfama area of Lisbon which is a great location for getting to all the main attractions.
