Reviewed June 11, 2009

Too expensive. 50 euros for a very small double room in May! We asked for bigger one and got a little more spacious double for 60. In the first room hardly room to put tings, no wardrobe, no drawers. In both rooms toilet/bathroom too small. In first room the knee hit a slab under wash basin, when sitting on toilet. Had to sit at an angle. We are both, not big and not over 155 cm tall. Showers- just enough standing room only. No ventilation in them. Staff not friendly, except one night attendent. Do not trust the photos on their website. Reception in dingy cellar without windows and so small, do not match the picture. Altogether too expensive for what you get. For 10 more euros we could have got almost a 4 star hotel room. Pluses though - quiet place although centrally placed.

Friendly staff, practical location (for Bairro Alto) and moderate prices. No breakfast, but there's a pleasant outdoor café in a small park up the street. And a restaurant next door, which was a little too eager to please.

We stayed several nights in the double room on the top floor, which had a lovely balcony with a nice view over the roof tops. The service was great and very friendly and we really enjoyed our stay there, the room was nice and clean and the beds were good. Carrying our luggage up the stairs was the only bad thing, since the place doesn't have a lift, however, everything else made up for it.

We booked our stay at the Pensao Globo after recommendations from friends that had stayed there just a few months before us.

It turned out to be a great place, located in the heart of the Barrio Alto in Lisbon but on a quiet side street. The staff were very friendly and helpful, specially when we needed some assistance with renting a car.

While this place might not attract someone who wants to spend a lot of time in the room it's a great upgrade from a hostel. Rooms are quite small but they come ensuite and with a TV (mainly Portuguese channels but better than nothing), and at the price of 35 Euros per night we couldn't find anything to complain about.

We stayed here for 3 nights, rented a car through then and toured Portugal and then came back here for our last night as well!
