“Perfect Hotel in a great area (bairro alto)”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

This hotel is the place to be in Lisboa! It is located in bairro alto, next to the convento do carmo (a visit of this sight is a must) and near to rossio. If you visit Lisboa for the first time it might be difficult to find the hotel. Actually it is very easy. 1) by taxi: Just tell the taxi driver at the airport to drive to convento do carmo - it will cost you about 7 euros. At convento do carmo you'll find the hotel immediately. Another option to reach the hotel is by taking the aerobus (about 3 euros) to rossio and then walk (about 10 min.) you must be aware though that you will have to walk upwards! to come back to the hotel: accomodation is great, the rooms are very modern and quite large. probably the best thing is the "rain-shower". Another great thing: breakfast! You have a wide variety of food (very important: fresh fruits and lisboan specialities!)

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The decor of the hotel is mid-century modern, very clean and minimalistic. Upon arrival we were greeted with a glass of wine, although I thought they might have lost our reservation. Our room was on the 4th floor facing the entrance to the hotel which had an amazing view of St George's Castle, a few churches and Museu do Carmo (located at the end of the square near the hotel). Our stay included breakfast which was delicious for a breakfast buffet. Fresh fruit, variety of pastries, and the usual eggs, ham etc. The best part of the hotel is the location. It is within walking distance to Chiado district (shopping area) and Barrio Alto (bar and nightlife area) -which we loved-. We were able to stumbled home both nights. Just be aware, Lisboa is a hilly city, our calves were aching by the end of our trip! Great location and great hotel. The only down side is that the internet was hit or miss but once we were able to get a username and password (that worked), it was ok.

Room Tip: Fourth Floor facing the entrance to the hotel! -Great view, but weak wifi signal.

We stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it. A very comfortable room, great bath room, superb breakfast with lots of fresh fruit. We also had lunch and dinner and the hotel's restaurant and we can highly recommend it. Wonderful service. All guests are couples of all ages, no families when we were there and therefore nice and quiet. Great place to stay for a city trip as it is so centrally located.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the 4th or 5th floor for a nice view.

We had a fabulous 2-day stay at the Lisboa Carmo a couple of weeks ago. My review is late because I got sick when I returned, but I have great memories of our time in Lisbon. We had the family room and it was perfect for my husband, daughter and her friend. You will have to get used to the shower and lights -- but everything worked well. Our favorite was breakfast, fresh fruits, nuts, pastries, warm items (eggs and bacon) and of course pasteis de nata -- yum, yum! We also enjoyed dinner at the restaurant one night and another nearby restaurant recommended by the front desk was also good.

My only suggestion is relates to taking a cab to the airport. We decided to use the cab service recommended by the hotel for which we paid 17 Euros beforehand. I think this might be reasonable during rush hour when the traffic is heavy, but we left at 8:00 am in the morning, and based on the cab's meter, which included a supplement for our luggage, it would have cost us less than 11 Euros.

The best location in Lisbon! The rooms are small but renovated, the beds are very comfortable. Our room 110 had problems wiht the heating system so it was very cold. The staff is not very professional and kind. The Reception is like a hall, practically doesn't exists. The breakfast is very poor and the only good thing are the fresh fruits and croissants. All the plates, glasses, bowls are very small, like in kindergarten, probably to discourage people from eating too much!!!

A new tourist hotel, very clean and efficiently run. Convenient for all public transportation and within walking distance of most of the sights. The rooms are well designed and the beds large and comfortable. A good breakfast is served in congenial surroundings. No complaints at all!
