Nice, big and modern room. Break breakfast. Perfect location between down town and all the bars and restaurants. Free internet. The best was the price: half of what we expected to pay. This is a great choice.

The company I work for organized a conference here, and the rooms and services provided to us were great. The bathroom is noteworthy. And the beds are comfortable. Also, we had free wifi. Only that we did not enjoy the food as much. Maybe we were too many, and the kitchen is not used to that? But breakfast was impeccable. That for sure is what they are used to do. Apart from that, I also had trouble with the room corridors smelling a bit damp (third floor). But the room was always fresh and clean.

My wife and I stayed at Eurostars Das Letras for 4 days, and were greatly satisfied by the service, location, and rooms of Eurostars Das Letras.

The rooms are very clean & comfortable. Some stains & imperfections on the hardwood floor gives the impression that the rooms will need a renovation in 1 or 2 years, but the current condition is totally acceptable.

The breakfast is very good and satisfactoray. The hotel offers a wide selection of fresh fruits, cheese, bread and cake specialties, and also Portuguese pastries. The breakfast room personnel is also extremely friendly and helpful.

Given the fact that it is not possible from hills in Lisbon, Eurostars is only 5-7 minutes uphill walk from Marques Pombal subway station. As long as you walk in and out of the hotel one or two times a day, this is not a big handicap.

I would definitely recommend Eurostars Das Letras Hotel and like to stay there again during my future Lisbon trips.

This hotel really combines everything we needed to explore Lisbon: a) great location, within walking distance from Avenida Liberdade and the train station (there is a uphill walk, true, but it is not extenuating for healthy people); b) top-notch service; c) cool, modern decoration and amenities; d) great breakfast; and e) of course, good value for money (for European standards).

There is only one pity for me: with so many amazing Portuguese-language authors, why making the whole decoration around English-speaking ones? (By the way, "das Letras" means something like "literate" or "from letters") My room had this scary excerpt from "Dr. Jekill and Mr. Hyde" hanging over the bed, while it could have the most beautiful thoughts from Fernando Pessoa... what a missed opportunity!

We stayed here over Christmas and New Year for 10 days. We had no idea where to stay in Lisbon and came across the hotel by searching the internet. The hotel is around 15 minutes from the airport which costs approx. €20 in a taxi.

Das Letras is tucked away on a quiet street, yet it is only a 5-10 minute walk to the nearest metro. Tickets are just over €1 for a single fare or you can buy a 24 hour ticket for less than €5. The tickets run for an entire 24 hours too, so if you buy the ticket at 11am it runs until 11am the next morning, unlike UK tickets that finish at midnight!

Lisbon is quite hilly and if you struggle walking I would recommend turning right out of the hotel rather than left on your way to the main street or the station - it's not such a big hill this way! It's an easy walk down to the main square and water front if you fancy walking.

On entering the hotel you are greeted with a chic, boutique style lobby. It is very clean and inviting. The staff are very friendly and helpful, wanting to show the best of their city and recommend places to go.

Our room was large by European standards and very clean. The bed was huge and the bathroom (behind frosted glass doors) had a bath and walk-in shower with a rain shower. All very modern and clean. The room is equipped with a flat screen TV, tea/coffee facilities and a fridge. The only thing missing would be more TV channels or pay per view movies.

Each room has a literary 'theme' with quotes displayed over the bed. Ours was Shakespeare, which was also translated from English to other languages in a display on the table.

We were also lucky enough to have a small balcony, although the friends we were staying with did not.

Breakfast was not included in the price and was a cold buffet. For €18 you can get a lot more in a local cafe however it was well done and convenient.

There are plenty of excellent bars and restaurants all over the city too. If you visit Belem for the day, make sure you try the famous custard tarts - well worth queuing for!

Altogether, this was a fantastic place to visit with plenty to see and do and the hotel is definitely worth remembering for next time we visit. The location and price could not be beaten.

I stayed there for only a couple of nights, but the hotel is far from a 5 star hotel. The guy at the reception made us a reservation to a restaurant that he was getting commission for sending guest instead of the one I asked (you don't do this in a 5 star hotel.). The shower was leaking from all the possible places and we could only use the bathtub, which was not fitted with a glass or curtain, therefore the whole bathroom was full of water after a shower. The view wasn't spectacular either, we had a view to another wall in front of us. The breakfast was definitely not of 5*, maybe only the one guy working at breakfast and moving very quick around and trying to make everybody happy worth the 5*.
