“Super rooms in city centre”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Stayed in Britainia for four nights' holiday in late August 2013. The staff were so friendly and helpful, smiling and obliging. The room we had was spacious, always clean, and lived up to the 'art deco gem' description. Just a couple of blocks from the main Avenida Liberdade, each day my wife and I walked into the city centre and walked home in the evening. Yes our room looked on to an office block, but that did not bother us one little bit, we closed the curtains! I cannot recommend this hotel too highly, hence the 5 star excellent rating.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your kind words about our hotel and our staff.
We just would like to precise that the Hotel Britania is located on the street behind but in the same block of the shops Louis Vuitton, Prada and Armani, on the main Avenida da Liberdade.
We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Yours sincerely,
Diogo Laranjo
General Manager

After a 12 day cruise, we docked in Lisbon and headed for the Britania.
Our wonderful travel agent...Oded at Traveland had arranged for our two night stay.

The hotel, and it's staff are first rate...When then found out it was our anniversary celebration, they sent a lovely bottle of champagne to our room.

Boutique hotel. ..... Charming and well located. Our room (31) was GAWGEOUS!!

Great WiiFii as well!
We would go back in a heartbeat.

Stayed at the Britania in March 2013, with my wife. This was our first stop over in Lisbon, & I am so pleased we stayed at the Britania. Great service, authentic architecture & fittings, felt just like home. Hidden away from the avenida Liberdade, but only a short walk to downtown, a great place to stay for couples.
Looking forward to going back soon.

This is not a new review but this is my favorite hotel ever.
It's simply perfect from my point of view.
We stayed at Britania for our couple getaway,back in 2011. I chose this hotel based on tripadvisor ranking and it was great. Very clean and beatiful.Good central location also,close to subway station.
We had only BB.And the breakfast was very good. High quality and fresh. Very nice people and great service.
I find that you really don't need a car hire to explore Lisbon-Estoril-Sintra.Every transportation is just in reach.
Hope to return soon.

Art deco hotel just off avenida. Super clean. Good value. Great breakfast. Friendly staff. Walkable to most of the sites but out of the chaos of barrio alto. Can't ask for much more. Would highly recommend

This is a lovely old but very well preserved boutique hotel in a quiet area, but yet very convenient for the city. We only stayed one night, which is a pity, but I would say that their staff are very friendly, with good advice on places to visit. The hotel has lovely décor, and breakfast was great. I would highly recommend the hotel - it's a little different from the regular modern hotel.

Located on a handy street in Lisbon - a mere two-minute walk to the metro and ten minute stroll to the downtown action - the Hotel Britania is a place of discreet class and distinction, offering an abundance of Art Deco elegance at a very affordable price. Indeed, the Britania is perhaps the most impressive and satisfying accommodation in this writer's 20-plus years of European travel.

The Britania is loaded with nice touches which result in a most satisfying hotel experience. Upon arrival my wife and I were greeted by an outgoing, English-speaking hotel employee who assisted us with our bags, through check-in, and then on to our room. (In fact, it would seem the entire staff at the hotel is fluent in English and, presumably, at least one other foreign language.) From our room we were provided with a helpful overview of the workings of a stylish and roomy junior suite. While the view from our room unremarkable - the hotel is situated on a safe yet nondescript street - were very taken by the many winning Art Deco touches within our room, including lighting, the furniture that houses the well-stocked mini bar, the door that leads to an adjoining room, with single bed, and a nicely appointed bath. Indeed, when one considers the cost per night of our room - 121 euros - alongside the attractiveness and spaciousness of the room, one can only conclude that the Britania provides outstanding value for money.

There were additional nice touches. The air conditioning was very effective, especially when one considers Lisbon's 30-plus degrees summer temperatures. Also, the breakfast buffet is both creative and plentiful, offering sparkling wine, grilled veggies, made-to-order foods, fast, room-based wi-fi (no need to camp out in the lounge to get a connection) and, perhaps best of all, a nifty and ultra-slick Nespresso coffee maker (located on the bar) which is the perfect antidote to the mud-like joe that's on offer with the rest of the otherwise delicious buffet. In all, the breakfast at the Britania is something to look forward to, something to savor, and it's all situated in a striking part of the hotel that oozes Art Deco sophistication. The hotel also features a lift, a variety of international newspapers, and a staff that emphasizes thoughtfulness and professionalism at every turn. This latter point cannot be emphasized enough as we were genuinely moved by the staff's polish and commitment to excellence. Bravo, Hotel Britania!

The nation of Portugal appears to represent solid value for money in relation to its Western European neighbors, and the Hotel Britania does likewise, providing a first-rate hotel experience at a remarkably reasonable rate. Don't pass on this hotel and the colorful, welcoming city that is home to Hotel Britania.

Room Tip: Try to spring for the junior suite. The extra roominess is worth it.
