“Nice, friendly guesthouse”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

The first impression (especially at night) is not good. You enter a dark, dingy foyer and take a rickety old elevator up to the guesthouse. However once inside the the guesthouse the staff greet you warmly (and in English). The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast buffet has an array of bread, meat, cheeses, fruit, cereal, juice etc. One minor complaint is the coffee is not very good - they could spend a bit more on better coffee. The staff were very helpful, even washing our clothes which had honey spilled on them during transit. Overall we highly recommend the Sweet Lisbon Guesthouse.

Room Tip: Some rooms do not have a private bathroom. The nicest rooms are overlooking the harbour.

We stayed here for 4 nights in April. The room was very nice...large, nice bathrrom a king-like bed, and a great view of the river from our window. It also has a nice kitchen and a "living room" you could spend time in. The staff was very helpful and answered all questions...we also learned a bit about the current political climate of Portugal here. The downside of the river view are old windows = a bit of noise at night. The first two nights were great, but for some reason there was a lot going on the last two, and we heard it all, until about 3;00 A.M. We found the street it was on easily enough, but all they have is a 8 x 11 black and white copy that says "Sweet Lisbon" in a nondescript door to let you know it's a hotel. It might be best to say "next to the Faz restaurant".and to let people know it does not look like a hotel. As noted, the location was great. Bus, metro, and sights just minutes away, and a nice location in old Alfama.

Fantastic guesthouse, well located in the old quarter of Alfama; every room has a beautiful view on the river. The staff is very friendly and ready to help. Room, kitchen and bathroom are very clean. Near to the train station, metro and fado clubs! We highly recommend this guesthouse.

It's quite difficult to find the place. The Guesthouse is so beautiful, the staff is very friendly and the rooms very clean. We stay in a room with a nice view from the river. I really enjoy this place and when I come back I would stay here again.

First of all: VERY difficult to find without a GPS.
The guesthouse is very clean and the people very friendly and helpful. It is quite central to most attractions. The bathrooms are updated and pretty (we booked a room with each own bathroom). We did not get a room with the view over the river, but the room where the traffic never stops. And the later it gets, the faster the cars drive past (in those narrow streets!) and the louder the people walking past below becomes. Not a very good nights rest, but if you are one staying out late, then it could work.

Room Tip: Try book a room on the river side, apparently it is quieter on that side.
