There was a large group of us that stayed at the house this past weekend for our friends hen party... and in every sense it was perfect! From the minute i had booked the trip i had been in contact with Francisco, who was fantastic! I always had questions and queries for him and he always replied quickly and always so helpful. When we arrived at the house i met with Anna, a lady that worked there, and also spoke with Francisco who told me about the layout of the house etc.. he was extremely helpful and gave us recommendations for food that night which was brilliant! (Check out the market which is a 10 min walk from the house).. excellent food, lots of choice! The house itself was amazing... all of the rooms had their own bathrooms. And everybody got given towels. The terrace was incredible.. we spent most of our time there,lapping up the sun and making most of the large space and amazing views! We will definitely be back in future :)…
Nice location and accommodations, and the host, Francisco was very pleasant and helpful. They have a lovely open terrace overlooking the city where you eat a nicely prepared breakfast. My only suggestion is to ban smoking on the terrace during the breakfast hours. It's not asking too much to start a fresh new day by enjoying breakfast in a pleasant outdoor setting, and not having to breathe in second-hand smoke from chain-smokers puffing away thoughtlessly, stinking up the otherwise clean air every morning.
My husband and I had four days in Lisbon en route to a wedding in the Algarve. The House was recommended by family members who had stayed there in 2013 and we loved it too. We were in one of the newer rooms on the 3rd floor (the original rooms are on 4th floor of the building). Not fancy but spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with fresh orange juice, eggs however you want them, meats, cheeses, different breads and preserves. And really good coffee! The roof terrace is spectacular and it was still warm enough to have breakfast there in the sunshine .... glorious. Francesco and Sonia couldn’t have been more helpful providing maps and invaluable advice on travel and sights. It was great to be a short tram/bus ride from the centre but away from the main tourist areas. Within 10 min walk from The House we found super neighbourhood restaurants, cafes and bakeries. So do stay here and have a good look round ..... it’s great!…
The House is a wonderful B&B. I first stayed in the The House in 2013 as a solo traveller and had such a lovely experience that I brought my mother and best friend back in 2018. One of the highlights is the rooftop sunroom where we enjoyed sunrises and breakfast each day. The location of the B&B is ideal; beside the Basilica (and Jardin) de Estrela and along the Tram 28 route for easy access to the city centre. One day we found ourselves wandering through some funky and cool neighborhoods (Alcântara & the LX Factory) and walked our way to Belem. I highly recommend The House and hope that I find my way there again.
Lovely B&B in the city centre. We were a big group and the staff often went out of their way to help us. The rooms are nicely decorated and the breakfast was very tasty. The real draw to this accommodation is the beautiful rooftop terrace with panoramic views of the city.
Cosy hotel (8rooms only) with honest bar and nice roof terrace. Great location close to tram in a nice quarter. Clean and spacious rooms Small but clean bathroom Very good breakfast Very friendly service with great info what to do/visit in Lisboa
I chose this hotel for a quick, overnight stay for a business trip. Francisco and Sonia are wonderful and the hotel is more like a home. Lovely terraces, with views of the water. It's not fancy, but clean and correct. The rooftop terrace is not to be missed! I plan to come back - if they have room for me! (This is a very popular place.)
When first shown the views from the rooftop you are immediately in awe. It’s as good as any view we saw in the city. Francisco (owner) was wonderful. He went through the map with us and showed us what to see. we walked all day the first day, clicking up 10 miles and got the 24 hour bus/tram pass on day 2. Breakfast at the hotel was excellent, with freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit salad, eggs of choice, cheeses, meats and much more. I would recommend the hotel strongly. Thanks Francesco !

My mum and her two friends, all in their 70s, spent a few days at The House Laat September. They thought the hotel was fantastic but it wasn’t until something went wrong that we realised how good the staff actually were. My mum knocked over an expensive vase (€3000) in a local shop. The shop owner was not helpful at all, threatening to call the police and demanding passports. João from The House came to the shop immediately to help my mum and her friends. He even provided a statement and further information so that I could advise my insurance company and put my mum’s mind at ease. He stayed in touch for week after to make sure Eve was OK. João is like having somebody from your family in Lisbon with you! More than just somewhere to stay!
Very nice stay at The House. The owner, location, and terrace all make this a very nice place to stay. Francesco goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable and provide hints and tips. The location is in Estrella, to the NW of the downtown. Within walking distance (if you're fit, there are a lot of hills) or easy to take the historic #21 tram at 3 euros each way. The terrace has a great view of the whole city and river. Great place to hang out, have a drink. The included breakfast was very good: eggs made to order, different breads, fresh fruit, yogurt, good coffee and juice. My single room, while small and a European shower (if you are big, it's going to be a problem), was adequate. There is a common room to read, hang out, as well as the terrace. Would recommend and return.…
