We booked two triple rooms, for six guys. All we wanted was somewhere for a two night stay in Lisboa, that was central and easy to get to and from the airport. Bus from airport (Euro 3, single) drop and pick up in Rossio square.

The couple who run this hotel are lovely friendly people and very helpful (but do not speak English). We couldn't use the form on the website to book but the lady telephoned me in response to a fax enquiry - perhaps the form on the website wasn't working properly?

The rooms we stayed in were very clean and comfortable, fresh towels in the small (but OK) bathroom, and beds made up, every day. Room only: but why would you want breakfast included with so many good cafés to sample!

We wanted to go eat somewhere "authentic" that was cheap but good! The guy suggested a local restaurant he knew around the corner away from the main squares and pedestrianised areas. We had a meal for the six of us including: quejo fresco to start, bread, fresh fish and a couple of beers each – which including a 10% tip came to Euro 60.

If you want somewhere in Lisbon, that’s right in the heart of the city, close to both touristy sites and venues and, most importantly, within staggering distance of Bairro Alto – then this is for you

Total cost of stay at the pensão Euro 280 – bargain!

I backpacked through Europe with two friends this year and having already visited Lisbon before I knew where I wanted our hotel to be, so I picked this Pensao solely based on its location. They also have a very nice website: www.pensaogeres.com with LOTS of information as well. I loved our stay at the Pensao Geres! The hotel is very centrally located, a minute walk from Rossio Square and a 3 minute walk to Rua Augusta! It's also very close by Rua das Portas de San Antao which is a very cute street with tons of cute restaurants and patios to eat on. If your planning a trip to Lisbon, you MUST eat on this street! Overall our stay at the Pensao Geres was great! The staff were very nice, friendly and helpful! The hotel has no elevator, so you have to walk up a couple flights of stairs to get to it, but I'm fine with that. These buildings are old and you can't expect all of them to come with elevators. Our room was really nice and CLEAN!! It had like 10 foot ceilings, plain white walls, carpeted floors, comfortable beds, a VERY clean bathroom, cable TV and two balconies!! If I ever visit Lisbon again, which I probably will, I will definitely stay at the Pensao Geres again or recommend it to friends! :)

Good location- very centrally located to the plazas and taxi/train pick ups. While the room was clean, it was small, bed was VERY hard and the bathroom was small as well ( I still have a small scar from hitting my leg on the shower door trying to get out!). It is also pretty noisy at night...in fact, late one night/early morning, we awoke to a man yelling for help outside and could hear a bunch of others running...sounded as though he'd been mugged or been in a fight- very scary!! The staff was friendly, but had very limited English. The hotel is rather unusual, with the "lobby" being quite small and confined, a hike up the stairs, narrow doors and various multi-level flooring throughout. Not a good place to stay if you're unstable on your feet at all. Worst of all, while the location is central, the path to the hotel is extremely unnerving at any hour- with various "suspect" people loitering along the walkway at all hours of the day and night. The entrance to the hotel, while on video camera, is a bit hidden from general view, so the wait for the hotel to buzz us inside was scary for two single women. I wouldn't recommend this place for women traveling alone for this reason, nor for families. While the hotel boasts about their free internet, it was down for some reason during our stay so don't count on it.

The room was clean. The bed was hard. The bathroom was very, very small. We were on a side street from Rossio Square and it was loud. Do not expect to get to sleep before 1am. You can close the shutters but then you will be hot in the room and still here the noise - only muffled. There were some very unfavorable characters hanging outside the corner of the hotel all day and all night. This was the only street up the hotel so you had to pass them. If I was not with my boyfriend I would not feel very safe and I'm a New Yorker! They have a security camera (for a good reason) so at least you are assured only guests will be allowed in the building. They are 1 flight up so with luggage it's a bit of drag. They family run staff was very nice and helpful. They have internet access in a "lobby" which felt like you were hanging out in the living room with the family (in an uncomfortable kinda way). Very centrally located to all transportation, restaurants and sights. If you're traveling as a couple - I'd recommend it. Ask for a room off the street. They charged a fortune for an international call.
