“THE BEST; WHY STAY ANYWHERE ELSE!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We arrived in Lisbon after a 6 week bicycle trip, having stayed in a different hotel every night and this was by far one of the best. We had pre-booked due to the big festival, so we were somewhat apprehensive, having never viewed the facility. Not to worry. It was amazing. The staff were so incredibly helpful with everything from taxis to recommended restaurants to the history of the building. The building has been immaculately refurbished so everything is modern and tastefully decorated. Our room on the 5th floor overlooking the street was beautiful. Despite all the activity in the street below the soundproofing allowed us to get a really good night's sleep. The breakfast buffet was, by far, the best that we had experienced.

But most of all, the best feature of this hotel is its location. It is very central, close to all the action, busses, train, metro, etc. You can walk to everything. And yet it only cost 14 Euros for a taxi to the airport!

DON'T STAY ANYWHERE ELSE!

ps. don't eat at on of the "tourist" restaurants on the street. Ask the front desk for directions to
A Provinciana, a local place less than 3 blocks away. It is true "local" cuisine, witness the mostly local clientele. And don't be put off by the crowd nor the chaos. If you go inside, they'll find a seat for you somehow. Great eclectic experience, great food and CHEAP!

We spent a week at this very centrally located hotel (close to Restauradores metro stn). We asked for a quiet room in the back as the street can be noisy at night (many restaurants, good-natured touts). Fairly old building with elevator and staircase going up to the fourth floor; old-style tiles in the hallways were a nice touch. Friendly and helpful staff at Reception that speaks English well; friendly staff of the large buffet-style breakfast room seems to speak little English. Lay-out of all floors is like a maze: upon getting to your hotel room floor, you can turn right or left - you'll always end up finding your room. Our room (108), which was at the end of a very narrow hallway (barely wider than a suitcase) giving entry to 4 hotel rooms, proved to be quiet but cramped: the floorspace at the foot-end of the bed is very narrow; there was little space to put 2 suitcases. The mattress on the bed was not that comfortable; also, small thin pillows and no duvet but old-fashioned sheets and a blanket. The bathroom was quite clean but fairly small; make sure to put your towel near the bathtub before having a shower as you make take a fall when trying to grab it from the towel rack that's been put up in the wrong place (you'll have to reach around a glass partition that more or less keeps the water from getting to the floor when in the shower); both plumbing (toilet + wash basin) as well as ventilator were very noisy; hairdryer is included. Quiet AC /heater fixed to higher end of the wall. Small TV attached high up to the wall in a corner; very small table, 1 basic wooden chair; no coffee/tea making facilities, so bring a device of your own if need be. Built-in closet with coat hangers that can't be used anywhere else but there (the lower wooden part needs to be fitted into a metal piece that's attached on a rod), so bring some of your own if you need to do some laundry. Bay window has a metal grille to prevent intruders from coming in (convenient for putting up some of that laundry provided it's not raining, but may also be a fire hazard). Fortunately, some large potted plants just outside our bay window gave us something nice to look at from the inside. All in all: quite basic and clean, and fine for just a week. Some pictures on the internet show romantic-looking rooms; room 108 lacked romance but fortunately was quiet.

Just spent 3 nights here, lovely hotel. Location is great, and also really handy for the airport bus.
Staff are friendly and helpful. I had a room at the front, good size room and bathroom, spotless.
Breakfast very nice with plenty of choice. Hotel is on a busy pedestrian street with plenty of restaurants. Its a relly nice friendly hotel, in a great location and great value for money.

There is no better central point for a stay in Lisbon than close to Rossio Square, and we loved the Residencial Florescente. You're on a lively restaurant row just a five minute walk from the square. The rooms are clean and well-trimmed, quiet compared to some other European hotels we've stayed in. One thing that made it a great stay was the very helpful staff. They got us into the room as early as possible after that overnight flight, helped with cabs, tips and directions. If we go back to Lisbon, this will definitely be the place we'll stay.

Room Tip: The swimming pool and fitness center aren't terrible. They just don't exist. But on an iPad...

My friends and me were very surprised by this hotel. We booked it quite cheap and when we got to Lisbon, we immediatly saw that this hotel was in the center of the city.
We asked for a room not at streetside, because we heard that streetside was a bit noisy.
Our room was very big and had a nice bathroom.
we were very pleased with the breakfast. There were 2 kinds of cereal, yoghurt, different kinds of bread, different kinds of egg,....
The staff was very helpfull but not too friendly.
It was all in all, a very good experience!

Room Tip: not at streetside

Location can not be beat. On the pedestrian "eating lane". Super close to one of the major bus and rail lines. The three guys at the front desk were all very helpful and pleasant. I stayed for three nights in a single room on the 2nd floor. Everything I needed. Comfortable bed, bathroom, hair dryer, TV, free WiFi, elevator, complimentary hot and cold breakfast. Nice! I took the Aerobus 3.5 euros from the airport to very close to the hotel and took a taxi 8 euros back to the airport. This is a budget hotel and a very fine choice for those who are looking for this type of accommodation. Definitely recommend.

We spent four nights at this hotel in late May 2013, and would happily return there. The room (in the back of the hotel) was quiet and clean, adequately appointed but with no frills, and the breakfast was more than ample. The staff was friendly and helpful. What's best is the location: on the "eating lane" in Lisbon, and within walking distance of the Bairro Alto and Alfama districts. The rate was very reasonable. We will recommend this place to friends.
