“Wow! First class all round.”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Myself and my husband stayed here for one night in november 2012 and found everything excellent. We checked in early (approx 11am) and the lovely friendly receptionist (i think her name was Sonya) gave us a free upgrade to a fabulous room, thank you for that! When we enquired about getting something to eat (our previous hotel didnt do breakfast!) she informed us they were still serving breakfast until noon if we wanted to avail of it. What a lovely surprise, breakfast til noon, we knew we had picked a great place!
Our room was really nice, spacious with hugh bed, very clean and very comfortable.
Breakfast was excellent with a great selection of hot food too and served in a lovely comfortable dining room, white table cloths, napkin rings etc , you can see with all the little touches that this hotel really cares about its guests.
While we were there we met two ladies on reception, the other was Racquel, they were both exceptional!!
Another factor that really stands out for us about the excellent service and professionalism of this hotel is that the following morning on our way into breakfast the head manager met us in the foyer of the hotel and introduced himself , welcomed us and enquired if we were enjoying our stay, a nice touch! We were very impressed, most hotel managers dont stand around the foyer of their hotels especially to talk to their guests!
I think the management and staff of this hotel make this place a wonderful place to stay, and i would go so far as to say they are the best i have ever come across and i have stayed in plenty of hotels.
When i go back to lisbon i will look no further than The Britania. Highly recommended.
Thanks for everything,
Maria and Steve Breen.

Returned on saturday from an enjoyable stay at the Britania.It certainly lived upto expectations.I rarely comment on these websites unless extremely pleased or disappointed. All the staff were helpful and polite,rooms were very pleasing and cleaned well.Breakfast was really good and the afternoon tea very welcome.We wouldnt hesitate to recommend or use the Britannia again.Well done.

We stayed there for a couple of nights and were very impressed. The hotel is beautifully decorated in a period style and immaculately maintained. But it was the quality of service that seriously impressed us. Friendly, welcoming and always there! An excellent breakfast, they also served us afternoon tea in the lounge (free) with seasonal cakes. Strongly recommend it.

I have been in many hotels all over Europe, and I would say this is one of the best. We stayed here for several nights in June of 2012 and found the room to be very large and exceptionally comfortable. I am very picky about beds, pillows, noise, and air conditioning (wait, I guess I'm just very picky overall!), and found all of these things to be top-notch. We slept comfortably in our large bed and never had any problems with noise. The hotel is clean and the staff superb. We enjoyed returning after dinner each evening to the lounge/living room/bar area for drinks. Jefferson, the bar tender, was a favorite! We will never forget him and enjoyed our conversations with him thoroughly. I couldn't recommend this hotel more. Very centrally located as well.

Good room, great location and an enjoyable stay. There are no real complaints from me and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I particularly liked the fact there was some complimentary port in the room every night I came back after dinner.

I've never left a review on Trip Advisor but we had such a wonderful stay at the Britania that I had to write something. The staff were so attentive, especially the charming woman who works in the evening. The hotel itself is beautiful, the room had to be seen to be believed (and thank you for the upgrade) and the package of TV channels were as good as anywhere I've stayed (not that we were in Lisbon to watch TV!). The location is simply perfect and the breakfast was just what we needed. When it finally came time to leave, and we were offered an umbrella for the (only) rain we encountered, I explained that we were flying home. "You'll return one day" came the response. I wouldn't doubt it for a moment.

This was a nice hotel with a great breakfast. The staff were all very friendly and available to help when needed. The room was spacious and the free wifi appreciated. We had a lovely dinner at the restaurant Rubro two doors down - tapas style. Well located and easy to walk around or catch a bus. We needed to leave a night early due to train strikes and this was easily catered for. The room was quiet and the balcony with chair and table a nice touch - too cold to lie on the sun lounges though they looked nice.
