The 2 ladies who I presume owned and ran the place were really friendly and made our stay really pleasant. They obviously enjoy making sure people have a nice stay and the breakfast provided a nice selection in the morning. If you want a hotel, go to a hotel; if you want a friendly (albeit slightly quirky) guest house in... More

Maria is a darling, whose smile and care made my day. Her interest in us and willingness to do everything in her power to make us comfortable made my Lisbon experience incredible. PLEASE note - this is a guest house and if you understand upper class hostel you won't be disappointed I chose this "guest House " because of the... More

The Rensao Royal is a great vacation value, located in the very center of Lisbon, half a block from the Baxia-Chiado Metro station. The heart and soul of this homey guesthouse is Paula, who seemingly does everything, from staffing the reservartions phone/internet to greeting you at the door, to cleaning (and the place is wonderfully clean) to preparing the famous...

First: The location is really good. But the whole place is unpleasant. The staff and owner are wired and not exactly friendly. The room we stayed was like a children's room (it felt like a horror movie). Breakfast was mostly cake ... I'm writing this review with 1 star because the current 4,5 rating is totally misleading.

I have just returned from a third and sadly final visit to this Pensao. My previous reviews from stays in October 2012 and February 2013 described amazing breakfasts, warm hospitality and beautifully quirky rooms with lots of character. I loved my earlier visits and I wanted to experience it all over again, and invite my new partner. Reflecting back on... More

We were dismayed to arrive here as the website clearly showed a wonderful illuminated building (which you assume is the hotel) situated further along on the other side of the street. This illustration now seems to have been removed, and the actual entrance to the hotel is a gloomy and smelly doorway. There is no lift and 60 steps, which... More

We spent the last 3 nights here and found it to be very clean, quiet, secure, great central location just steps from the metro, and we had the best hostel breakfast ever with dozens of selections! Paula was extremely helpful with directions, recommendations and lending items. All the rooms have a private bath. The only thing that might concern some... More

Paula is well informed, readily available,and more than willing to help with all matters. The breakfast is good and the location is centrally located. And the rooms were clean. Paula made us feel welcome .

My friend and I were staying in this hostel for quite a long time, almost two weeks. It is located PERFECTLY in the center of Lisbon, just a few steps from Baixa/Chiado subway station. The hostel is not very big, but it offers a family atmosphere. Our room was very small, with two seperate beds. It would have been nice... More

The rooms are nice and very clean. The owner Paula made a nice, very large breakfast every morning! She was also great for inside tips for trips in and around Lisbon! This place is a good value for it's money, we will come back and we recommend it to people that go to Lisbon!

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
