First of all, my compliments to the hotel staff who tried to make our lives agreeable despite the appalling condition of the building. Upon arrival we were assigned two rooms on the 4th floor with a very distinct sewage stench. After complaining at reception we were given 2 other rooms : mine was again on the 4th floor and had...

We chose this hotel for its unique Portuguese flavor and we were not disappointed. It was inexpensive yet had all the necessary perks we needed. The hotel staff were so helpful and kind. The breakfast was more than anticipated. We were given directions that we could understand and overall, we very much enjoyed our stay. The room had double beds... More

Bed a bit hard. Street a bit noisy. Standard breakfast. Good price though at 35 Euros for a double room. Getting to the city is easy from the bus outside the hotel or easy enough walk. Getting to and from the city it is about a 10minute walk then about a 20minute bus ride to the airport.

The hotel is quite well placed for eateries and bus service and taxis are plentiful and cheap in Lisbon. The hotel had WiFi in communal areas and breakfast was... More

After some time searching, I have found this Hotel, that actually took a whole weight from my shoulders. I manage to proceed to the booking, for only 68EUR / two... More

We stayed here for 3 night at the end of 2013; if you landed at Lisbon airport, I will recommend take the metro and get of at 'Rossio' station and take bus 760 at the Rossio square (show the bus driver the hotel address to prevent wrong direction); get off at the final stop and the hotel is just across...
