We were very impressed from the moment we walked up to the front desk. Friendly staff who welcomed us, and made sure everything was just right. The room was just beautiful, clean, and large. Marble decor made it stunning to look at. We were away a month in Western Europe, and this was undoubtedly one of the best places we had stayed. It's close to the primary avenue, Avenida da Liberdade (Liberty Avenue) an important avenue in central Lisbon leading to restaurants, bars, attractions, and the river. The metro is less than 5mins walk away, and the overground train 10mins walk. Easy access to sightseeing bus tours. The staff will go out of their way to assist to make your stay in Lisbon a memorable one. It's one street back from Avenida da Liberdade, and as such very quiet. Great breakfast catering for all tastes is available on premises as well. Good WiFi reception and at no charge. Very well priced, and all up, a great experience.

I was so impressed with every component of this hotel. The rooms were beautifully decorated, spacious, and well appointed. I loved the cork floor! The bathrooms are clean and "period", so not sleek and snazzy. The breakfast buffet was generous, and they offered tea in the afternoon. The staff was AMAZING! From the minute we checked in to the minute we left, they treated us like we were their most valued customers. The only thing lacking was outdoor space......a roof top lounge would have put this hotel over-the-top! I can't wait to go back!

I have been to Lisbon countless times in the past but this was the first time I had stayed here, picking the hotel from Tripadvisor reviews. Our experience supported what we had read. The standard of service was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and everything was done in such a manner that you felt really comfortable. The rooms were a good size, superbly air-conditioned, good range of TV channels and. FREE wifi in the rooms. There was a free afternoon tea, excellent after walking around Lisbon heat. Now the Breakfast, it's served until noon! The fruit etc is continually topped up so there is no fear that if you come down for a later relaxing breakfast there will be shortages.
All the staff were excellent, extremely well trained, helpful and friendly.
Overall an excellent experience and we hope to return.

Is this the best hotel in Lisbon? Probably. I was amazed by the place - the welcome when we arrived, the stunning, art-deco room, the cleanliness, the location, the peace and quiet! And did I mention the price? The lazy breakfast times the high quality, free wifi, the brilliant doorman looking after our car? Britania easily lives up to its reviews and deserves them all!

Like all the other reviews have pointed out the Britania is a gem. With only thirty rooms it is very cosy, the staff attentive, and are happy to help all the time without being obsequious or intrusive; Marco being the stand out. The keep a quite note of what you have whether it be a drink or a sandwich without the intrusive signing of vouchers etc. We were there for eight days and in a hotel like this, it removes the stress of the accommodation part of holiday. The value for money is very good (5 nights at E111 and three more at E140) and the attention to detail quite something. While we did not avail ourselves of a glass or two from the two carafes of port they have (on the house) there for the guest to sample at their leisure; it was nevertheless an example of the nice touches the Britania provides. The location jus behind the upmarket shopping area with Lois Vouton literally around the corner, is perfect; and buses and metro very near.

Very few nit picks except for a 4am call to my home in Australia to confirm my booking, but proufound apologies for not checking the time zone. Maybe an email confirmation would safe them phone call costs and time zone embarrassments.

We spent the first four nights of our Honeymoon in the Britania and could not have asked for more. Our room was very spacious, with a balcony and a large terrace with lounge chairs. We spent the end of every night in Lisbon relaxing on the terrace drinking wine or champagne. The common space in the hotel is beautiful, the staff is extremely helpful, without being overbearing, and there is a very nice afternoon tea every day. We found the location ideal to explore many different neighborhoods in Lisbon and had a number of great restaurants nearby, Highly recommended!

A wonderful place to spend a vacation. We stayed 4 nights and everything was just perfect. We were treated like royalty; every request was fulfilled promptly, with a smile. The staff is absolutely amazing. Special thanks to Raquel, Ana and adorable Marco, who made us feel better than at home. We always stay at 4 star or five star hotels; we have had very good experiences with various hotels in Europe, but we have never been to such a paradise.

The minute you enter the hotel, you are struck by its beauty and attention to every detail. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. Staying in the Britania feels like staying in a palace and playing King and Queen. Room service is impeccable. The room sparkled, as did the whole place.

We can go on and on describing all the many details which made our stay so enjoyable. If you want to have a special experience and enjoy a true vacation, choose the Britania. The only problem is that it hard to go back home...
