Basic but comfortable for one person. The staff/reception do not speak English & were not helpful in recommending places to see/go which was disappointing as I had not been to Lisbon before. I needed information and help to print a bus ticket which they did not help me with. The hotel is on the 7th floor with no elevator. Highlight... More

While the location near the downtown 'Rossi' train station couldn't be better, everything else is very much lacking. It's on the 4th floor and there's no elevator so be prepared for a steep climb up. They only take reservations through booking.com and there's no English spoken. In operation since 1895, the Hotel Imperial is clean but worn and dated. As... More

Room was really nice and well-furnished. We books 4 nights in a room with private shower (no toilet though), but we were able to use the shared toilet, which was very clean. Free tea and fruits all day in the kitchen too. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful as well! There was no lift, so make sure you're fit enough... More

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"!
