“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This accommodation is fantastic, from the time you arrive until you depart I challenge anyone to find better. When I was researching for our trip and saw all the comments I thought it was too good to be true for the price but the Madalena Hermitage lived up to all the great comments. We stayed there for 8 days and could not have been happier.

Room Tip: It is easy to walk past so keep an eye out for the address 29 above the front door. You will be glad...

We had a lovely stay at this top floor apartment with a great view. Highly recommend. The location was good near the city center, two metro stations nearby (especially Baixa Chiado - which we used - and Terreiro do Paco) and a good grocery. The apartment in the completely renovated building was very comfortable, clean and quiet, decorated with style and personality and very well equipped. Weather was hot during our stay and we really appreciated the airconditioning. There was also free wifi, which worked without problems. If only we could have stayed there longer!

The experience of staying at Madalena Hermitage was very good. The apartment is completely equipped, even with cloth washer. For familys with kids, it's perfect! There's some options of mini markets nearby.
It's also very close to Praça do Comércio, excellent place to eat and stop of many buses and tram.
And Salomé is a lovely person!

Room Tip: In the last floor, the window has a beautiful view to Catedral da Sé

The location of the apartment is great, close by the old town Alfama and city center as well as all kinds of restaurants. Traffic connections are good, close to metro station, tram and bus stops. The kitchen is very well equipped and some coffee, sugar, spices, biscuits etc. are also available. We stayed at the top floor with a skylight window on the roof and a nice view over the old town. The apartment is spacious, very nicely designed with light colors. The apartment is also safe an quite. There is no reception, but the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, always available by phone. We enjoyed our stay at the apartment very much.

We had a lovely stay at this apartment. Everything was clean and very well equipped as well as beautifully furnished. We had easy access to all means of transportation, and Lisbon's main tourist areas such as the Praca do Commercio. The supermarket was within a short walking distance and we felt very secure in and out of the apartment. It was very quiet even though we were in the centre of the city.

Room Tip: If you stay on the 5th floor which is the top floor then you will have windows on the roof looking o...

We stayed at an apartment for three at the top floor which had roof windows and a nice view of the catedral. The apartment was really large in European standards and comfortable. We had a washer-dryer, a dish machine, a coffee machine etc. and a very well equiped kitchenette. Also free wi-fi, a flat TV etc. The hotel (actually not an hotel as there is no reception) was very clean and modern. The location is great for a city visit. Very close to the Praca Comercio, the river and Rua Agusta, yet on a silent road. From the airport you can take bus number 1 and walk about 10 minutes to reach the place. There is also a metro station nearby. Tram/bus to Belem also has a stop at Plaza Comercio.
Remember that this is not an hotel and (we stayed for five nights) nobody comes for cleaning, getting the garbage etc (perhaps unless you ask so). But they leave a GSM number which you can call anytime for help.
Overall it was really a very comfortable and joyful stay. We felt at home.

Room Tip: The apartment at the top floor (for three people) has roof windops and a nice view of the catedral.
