“Deserves six stars!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Quite simply probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in. Astonishing value for such a wonderful building and character. The library and balcony were so lovely. Superbly comfortable bed and room and excellent breakfast an coffee. Service attentive and efficient at all times. Yes it really deserves more than 5 stars!

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

A small, charming and friendly place in which you can just about imagine yourself pleasantly ensconced in the 19th century. (The bathrooms however are entirely modern.) A 'library' on the top (3rd) floor extends to offer a sunny balcony with views over the Tagus, and refreshments are at hand. One can take breakfast in the small secluded garden, and enjoy free entry to the Museu de Arte Antiga next door.

Room Tip: 2nd and 3rd floor rooms facing south have a view across the estuary

We stayed here for four nights in May. It must be the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious and have lovely old furniture (throughout). The bathroom was large and well equipped with Molton Brown products. Lovely breakfast each morning with lots of choice served in the garden if the weather is good. Nice touch that breakfast service is until mid day so anyone tired from travel can sleep in.
Quiet location . Lovely roof terrace to sit in and a well stocked honesty bar if you dont want to go out. Bus access to Lisbon town and other ares is cheap and just in the road outside the hotel.
Staff are helpful ,in short I would find it difficult to find fault with this charming place

Room Tip: The hotel is on a road (not major) so there is some road noise but we had a room at the side

Stayed here for four days last November. Hotel was very clean with access to large living room and the view at night time. Bathroom was very big and bedroom had a lovely view onto a quiet street which was quiet at night. Bus is a one minute walk from the hotel and take you to the town centre etc. We did the bus tour around the city which was good. Shopping in Lisbon is excellent also, next time we will spend more time here as four days wasn't really enough time to explore everything. All hotel staff were very helpful, friendly and spoke english. Would advise people visiting Lisbon to try to visit the following: Castelo de San Gorge, Bairro Alto (for the shopping), Praca do Comercio (nice for an evening meal), also make sure to take a day to travel to Sintra which was the highlight of our trip. Amazing views and winding streets up to the castle. Can't wait to go back !

Stayed for 3 nights in Lisbon to celebrate my birthday. This is a perfect hotel. Beautiful old building, filled with an eclectic mix of antique furnishings and decor. Rooms were well proportioned with plenty of storage, bathroom was large and well equipped, including bathrobes and slippers. Staff were most helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent, including champagne!! The library and roof top terrace provide the perfect spot for a relaxing drink or two, there is an 'honesty bar' and free tea and coffee always available. The complimentary carafe of port awaiting us in our room each day was the icing on the cake!! I was presented with a complimentary bottle of champagne on my birthday which made our celebrations very special. There is a very pretty courtyard garden where we enjoyed breakfast each morning surrounded by flowering shrubs and bird song. Ideal location for bus routes, and plenty of essential local information available at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel most strongly.

Room Tip: We overlooked the courtyard garden on the first floor, perfect, no noise, even with the windows open...

We spent 2 weeks at the hotel, which was excellent. Services were efficient and effective, rooms clean and comfortable, and in every possible way they did a little extra to make the stay enjoyable. A communal "library" with balcony looking over the waterfront offered a comfortable location for relaxation with a view. There is no restaurant, room service will provide a sandwich, but there is a wide variety of restaurants available within a short walk. While it is located a little way from the city centre there is a regular bus service.

Celebrated a cousin's Birthday in Lisbon and stayed at As Janelas Verdes. The Hotel is great, and the decor is fabulous.
The front desk book in was very efficient and we were provided with lots of information about what Lisbon had to offer.
We asked to change our original room and The Manageress ensured my wife and I had a perfect choice. Nothing wrong with any rooms just that first one had twin beds and we prefer a double. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean, and was a bath or shower combination, plus all products provide we're Molton Brown. Bath robes and slippers provided, and full range of good sized towels available.

Rooms visited were all decorated to a high standard ( we were with others so saw 4 in total) and the free use of a safe in them is very useful. Free wi-fi available which worked in our room plus a free to use computer in the lounge area provides guests with access to any online information.

The breakfast was good value. A selection of fresh fruit, breads, pastries, plus fried bacon, sausages and scrambled egg and many other items were very well laid out. Fresh Fruit juices were great and we were lucky enough to have the weather to use the garden terrace in which to eat our breakfasts.

The staff were all so helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. A Champagne breakfast was set up in the garden terrace which helped with Birthday celebrations and was provided by the manageress, who was fantastic.

The roof terrace is delightful and has an Honesty bar for alcoholic drinks, and free tea and coffee in the kitchen area is available al the time. Worked very well for us.
The Free Carafe of Port in our rooms each day was a bonus, and we all loved sipping this on the roof terrace as a night cap after our evenings out.

Bus stops nearby get you into the main towns and if you get travel cards from a local shop it saves money on multiple journeys.

We all enjoyed our stay here and thought it was great value.

Room Tip: Some people may find front roadside rooms noisier than the back ones, as the roads are cobbled so cr...
