We loved this hotel. It’s in a great area of town that’s easily walkable. The building is an older beautifully renovated space with large windows and lovely furnishings. The room was large and very comfortable; and the bathroom was clean and modern. We were lucky and had a room that opened onto the square so the view was fabulous. The staff were all kind, friendly, and helpful - take their recommendations for a restaurant- and the food in the quiosque was quite good. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Lisbon!
We had a short stay with some friends at this charming hotel. Our junior suite was comfortable but not as roomy as the junior suite assigned to our friends. It is ideally located in close proximity to many sites and restaurants. This was our second time visiting Lisbon and preferred the location of this hotel. The only issue was that none of the hotel staff offered to help us with our luggage. We managed to get our luggage into the tiny elevator but the front desk personnel just watched us and didn’t offer a hand. All of the other hotels we stayed in had great customer service. Overall, we would recommend this hotel to first time visitors to Lisbon.
This boutique hotel is right off the main boulevard in Lisbon. The staff, (especially Isheria), was professional and went out of their way to be helpful.A charming place, beautiful rooms, and right across the street, as part of the hotel, is an outdoor cafe with drinks and food. I would highly recommend this hotel!
This hotel was superb, I simply cannot think of any other way to describe it. We booked 3 nights at Hotel Alegria for a first time trip to Lisbon. The location could not have been better, right in the heart of the city, close to Rossio train station, and a 15 minute walk to the Lisbon waterfront. Best of all the hotel is on a garden square (Placa Alegria) which has a wonderful little cafe situated in a pleasant, relaxing public garden. Our room in the hotel was spacious, spotlessly clean, modern and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and a great start to the day. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The bathroom was great with a good shower (always a points scorer for me). The absolute best thing about this hotel however is the staff, nothing was too much trouble, totally professional and friendly at the same time and everything about the place just worked perfectly. I was foolish enough to leave a camera in the back of a cab, one afternoon. The reception staff called around and somehow managed to recover it for me within 2 hours! I simply cannot recommend the place highly enough.…
I had booked a room at the Hotel Alegria in Lisbon on a Friday night. While we were on the train coming back to Lisbon from Porto, I got a call from Bernardo Soares Franco from the hotel explaining that there was a problem with the room, which was no longer available. He asked me to come to the Hotel Alegria and he would help make arrangements for the night. He was completely apologetic and wanted me to see the hotel before moving to another where he had booked a room. We went to meet him at the hotel and it was utterly charming. It faces a beautiful, lively square where there was live music and it's very close to the luxury shopping area - Avenida da Liberdade. Bernardo walked us with our luggage from Hotel Alegria to the other hotel, where he had booked us a VIP suite - gratis! Truly amazing hospitality during a very busy time for hotels in Lisbon. I highly recommend the Hotel Alegria - even though I did not stay there. Bernardo's concern for us was exemplary and so typical of the people we met in Portugal - friendly, authentic and determined for travelers to have the best experience. I am so grateful to Bernardo and the Hotel Alegria! He made my last nights in Portugal truly memorable.…
Great hotel, nice clean room with a beautiful view of the park across the street. Staff was welcoming and really helpful on directions, a few dinner reservations and ideas. Love that they have the concession in the park so we could get a drink at the end of a long day of seeing Lisbon. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning that came with our rate, nice way to start each day.
We stayed at the Hotel for five days in the Junior Suite. Nice room and bed. Cute little balcony overlooking a small park where there was a few singers playing during the early evening adding a nice atmosphere. Good bathroom. Breakfast had everything we wanted and would stay here again.
From the front the hotel looks lovely over looking the park with a cafe If you’re in a back bedroom you have building work 8am till 6pm with builders looking straight into your room! This means you have to constantly have the window and curtain shut with an early construction alarm wake up call Asked to move but was told they were full E and staff seemed uninterested when requested Due to this I would avoid till building work complete or you can guarantee a front facing room
Directly in front of this lovely little hotel, there is a lovely little plaza with a fountain. In that plaza, near the fountain, there is a lovely little kiosk that serves surprisingly good food (and tolerable wine). My wife and I ate lunch at that kiosk every day, and this little ritual of ours went a long way toward ensuring that the day ahead would be a good one, rain or shine.
A very pretty hotel where the staff are really nice and helpful. It has an old world feeling to it. Creaky floors and all. The bedrooms we had were spacious and very bright. The area is very pretty and very close to everything while being a little tucked away
