“Perfect City Hotel - next to everything”
Reviewed April 5, 2011

Very easy to find, take the airport bus, then the steep tramway, and walk 100m you're there. Safe, friendly, clean and quiet (new windows!). Breakfast with ham, cheese and cereals included. Good for exploring the barrio alto and the rest of Lisboa. Tiny TV with 4 portuese stations, but who need a TV after an exploring day?

The place is excellent. Located close to the city center and Metro. It seems like a very safe avenue.
The rooms are very confortable. The first 3 days, we occupied a double room sharing the bathrom, and the next 4 days we moved for a VERY large room with 4 beds for both of us and private bathroom. The price is average but the room was GREAT!!!
The service is very good, the breakfast good enough (they had not a light or diet option) and the reception staff is very helpfull and kind.
Probably the only thing they should improve is having a 24 hs coffee service.
Really it worth a lot. The first time I found more than expected in a hotel.

Very well located. People at reception extremely kind and helpful.They recommended us places to eat, where to go, or whatever we needed. They also booked tours for us.Breakfast is very good and rooms are comfortable. I would have liked better heating in the bathroom. That was the only drawback.

Well positioned budget hotel in the convenient Bairro Alto neighborhood of Lisbon. I made a five night stay in early March in a double room with shared bathroom. I got a relatively last minute bargain rate of €25 per night which was an absolutely great deal! My room was on the first floor and offered no particular view but for the rate paid, it's hard to quibble. I was expecting some street noise as the room faced the main street but noise was never once an issue. The room did have its own washbasin within but as advertised, the toilet/shower facilities were shared and down the hall. Sharing was never an issue, I only found my bathroom occupied once during my entire stay. Breakfast is a pretty basic continental affair but tasty and filling. Staff was quite friendly and helpful. Hotel location is very well connected to public transportation: the number 758 and 790 buses pass in front of the hotel, the Elevador da Gloria is right down the street (which takes one up/down to Restauradores Square) and Lisbon Metro is not far away (Rato, Restoradores, Baixa/Chiado stations). Hard to imagine that you'll find a better value hotel that's as close to almost everything as Pensão Londres!

When we first arrived i was a little concerned. Hallway & stairwell is a little dingy, reception is on 2nd floor & this fact is not clearly posted, reception area is cramped & also could use a fresh coat of paint. We were given a room on the 4th floor, opening door to the 4th floor I breathed a sigh of relief, fresh paint, clean rugs. We had a small, simple, clean charming room, nicely furnished, very high ceilings w/a shared bathroom & a great view. I found bed & bedding very comfortable, husband thought bed was a little hard. Walls are a little bit thin, I could tell from ceiling molding my room was one once a part of a much larger room. Thin walls caused no issues for the 1st three nights as rest of people on floor were considerate, last night we got a guy next door who was unable to use his indoor voice.
The Staff was very helpful & I was advised that not all the floors in the building are part of the Pensao, they hope to one day have the 5th & ground floor & move reception downstairs & the breakfast room up. I saw one of the "family rooms" very good size. Breakfast was OK & the room was nice, would have liked some yogurt or fruit, but they did say continental breakfast.
On the whole I was very pleased with the Pensao & will recommend it! But please be aware it is truly a 2 star hotel not a 4 star , this place is a very good value & I would pick a 2 star hotel in the downtown or historic districts of Lisbon over a 4 star "uptown" any day.
