I recently stayed at The House with two other girlfriends (all from Chicago). Francisco, the owner, greeted us warmly by name upon our early check-in and invited us to enjoy some breakfast while they finished preparing our room. He and the rest of the staff (Catarina and Pedro) were extremely accommodating and helpful throughout the course of our 7-night stay. Their English was impeccable, and they were quick to offer suggestions on restaurants and activities. They also helped with logistics related to trains and taxis.
We stayed in the master bedroom, which has two twin beds, and they added a double bed for our third. The cost for having a third person in the room was minimal. The room itself was large and had a nice patio, and we were able to access the complementary wifi throughout the hotel. We had a private detached bathroom that was just outside our bedroom door. The hotel rooftop offered stunning views of the city and the ocean and provided a nice spot to sit and enjoy and evening cocktail. We all loved the black-and-white decor of the upstairs hallway.
Breakfast was simple yet sufficient - bread, cheese, fruit, yogurt, cereal, coffee, and juice. From what I understand they are happy to make you eggs should you ask, but the spread that they provided was plenty for us.
Though not located in the Bairro Alto/Chiado nightlife neighborhood, The House is conveniently located near the Estrela Basilica, where there were always plenty of taxis. A cab ride into the center of the city took about 10 minutes and cost roughly 6 euros - very reasonable. Also, the #28 tram, which runs throughout the entire city, stops very nearby The House.
We had an excellent week in Lisbon due in large part to the friendly, professional staff at The House, and we would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Portugal's capital city.
