Based on TA reviews we decided to book As Janelas Verdes for a long weekend in Lisbon, and what a good choice this turned out to be.
Arriving at Lisbon airport, we had amongst others organized a private transfer via the hotel. When we arrived, a lady with our names on a sign explained us that she wasn’t the one waiting for us, started to make phone calls as she couldn’t get the ‘right’ person on the line, and the after speaking to someone, told us to wait. Wait for a private transfer? Come on, so we decided to take a taxi. Not what you call a good start. However, from then onwards everything was top notch.
The hotel is nicely located not too far from the inner city vibe, which can be easily reached by public transport or taxi’s. which are by the way both remarkably cheap in this city. It’s an old classic building, nicely turned into a boutique hotel. Our room with views over the river was big, with a sitting and sleeping area. Well appointed, high ceilings etc. The only ‘negative’ thing for me is the bathroom, where you have to take a shower in your bath with an old fashioned bath curtain.
Service in this hotel is of a very high level. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a real treat with for instance sparkling wine, fresh orange juice and a Nespresso coffee machine next to normal filter coffee as well. Furthermore a nice selection of breads, cheeses etc. The Library with honesty bar on the third floor is a another great asset to this place. Here is a nice terrace with beautiful views over the river combined with an excellent selection of drinks
I would highly recommend As Janelas Verdes as a top hotel in Lisbon and one we would gladly return to.
