I stayed at he Pensao for 6 nights.First of all it has a great location! Right round the corner from Rua Santa Catarina the main shopping street..metro stop just up the street..and also cafes..shops..Via Catarina mall,central market ..all very near right at your feet.. plus a supermarket across the street in the mini mall for all your needs.So for me..this location was perfect! Near all the sights as well...you can walk everywhere.
The girls at the reception were great..polite,friendly and helpful giving me all the information I needed.English very well spoken.Great price too!!You can leave your luggage at the reception if you must check out and have a later flights as I did..no problem.
Some points that may be a problem for some..so keep in mind:
The room was clean and basic ....small but fine for myself....did not need much more as far as space...nice view from my little balconey.The bathroom was also small..a bit of a tight squeeze toilet/shower area but again it was fine by me.However it may be an issue for some people.Also its quite noisy from the street so light sleepers may have a problem.I also found it quite noisy at times in the corridor by others going in and out of their rooms..doors slamming etc..and just plain being noisy..There is a gap at bottom of door so basically you hear everything.This is something that did annoy me(was at night) but that"s noisy clients so not much you can do.
Another thing is that there is no elevator..so that means taking up your luggage.Keep this in mind when booking a room..ask for first floor if its gong to be a problem.No breakfast but mini fridge in room which was great and plenty of cafes etc near by.Television is very basic..I think 4 channels..all Portugese..
So if these points do not present a problem for you I feel the Pensao is great!!!I really enjoyed my stay there. Go for it!!!!!!!!Feel free to email me if any questions.
