Room and staff are very nice. The neighborhood is probably not the best you can be in Lisbon though. And if visiting Lisbon during the summer months - things twice before booking this place: there is no AC in the rooms. We opened the window to keep the room cooler during the night, unfortunately garbage collection in Lisbon on that... More

The room was small, very narrow and with no AC very hot. Very small bathroom, but modern and clean. Since there was no AC we had to leave the window open during the night, the street is very loud and we couldn't sleep because the heat and the noises from the street. Not a pleasant experience.

When booking the Lavra my expectations were not high as I had seen many mixed reviews. However, all I can say is that things must have improved since last year because I had no problem with wi-fi, my room was not tatty; in fact very modern and clean. Yes it was spartan, but note this is a guesthouse and not... More

Room very basic...no tea or coffee making facilities or water in the room. Tatty. Hard uncomfortable mattress. Area not good. We were in an annex at the back of the house...across an open courtyard which was scruffy and steps were slippery. Would not return

We were very lucky to get a room in this beautiful small guest house. The beds are very soft and comfortable, even though there is a street in front of the guest house you hear nothing through the windows. The men at the reception were both very kind and friendly. We had to stay a long time in the hospital... More

Stayed here for one night which was enough. The paper was peeling off the walls in one room. The bed bases were stained and dirty in our room. The bathrooms are tiny and not great. The bed linen and towels were very clean though. Nice little roof terrace and open areas and staircase are pretty. The staff was friendly, the... More

If you want a quiet nights sleep and someplace with easy street access and parking, then look farther out. The clubs stay going until dawn and getting to this guesthouse, well it's not there fault, but it's location doesn't make things easy. Now breakfast, that was very nice. In fact, the room was no less than I expected also, but... More

This was by far one of the nicest places I stayed on my trip. It's not an amenities thing, just an atmosphere and friendliness thing. It was an old Monastery. It has an amazing view. They sell water and store baggage. It's in a quiet area. The staff are super helpful. The accommodations are very clean, bright and pretty. The... More

It is true that it is not the best place if you have mobility issues. However if you have legs and are willing to use them I highly recommend lavra. Great views from terrace, querky and interesting building. Wonderful staff and central to almost everything. Great local restaurants, full of locals. So cheap too. Lisbon is captivating and you will... More
