Teatro Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #12 of 255 Lisbon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We loved this hotel from the minute we got in the tiny lift with the old-fashioned concertina doors that you have to close manually. The hotel would be described as "boutique" in traveller-writer speak, as it has been extremely tastefully designed on the theme of the Comede des Arts characters, with proscenium arch and colonnade motifs running throughout the corridors and rooms. An excellent choice because of its close proximity across the road from the beautiful old Teatro da Trindade.
Though pushed for space, the layout of the rooms with the use of lots of glass and mirrors made them feel spacious and luxurious, with use of strong colours and very modish fittings - our room was red, black and white. The bed was wonderfully comfortable which is such an important aspect of a hotel!!
The most fabulous thing was the wonderful breakfast in the tiny dining room with glass tables and Philippe Starck 'Ghost' chairs. The intimate nature of this hotel, and the charming attention by director Henrique who serves at breakfast every morning made this a unique experience. The buffet groaned with cakes and delicacies of every sort, with lovely fresh fruits, cooked breakfast as well as different cold meats and cheeses. Even chocolate mousse was served by Henrique with volcanic rock salt - sounds bizarre but was delicious.
The only drawback for us was lack of shelf space in the bathroom, (not enough for two spongebags) and not really enough hooks for the three towels each.
But that was a minor issue compared with the incredibly friendly and attentive service by all the staff - obviously Henrique leads from the front - with Daniel giving us great directions and ideas for places to visit and things to do and telling us about things Portuguese which helped our understanding of the country.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes small hotels, with personal service and the opportunity to talk to staff. With only 15 rooms, and a brilliant central location, this makes Hotel Teatro a must for us to return to Lisbon.
As a tip, if you look on Google streetview, it is difficult to see the hotel entrance, because the Google images were obviously taken before Hotel Teatro opened in August 2012. When on streetview, facing a shop called Matador, you will notice signage saying Nova Democracia. The hotel entrance under the signs is the two right-side glass doors which appear darker (not curtained) and are closer to the wooden bench. Our taxi driver from the airport did not know where it was, as the hotel is so new, but because we had looked on Google we had a good idea. It does not look an inviting entrance, but get up to reception and then your room, and you will be stunned by the decor.
Another tip: our taxi from the airport cost E11.80, which was correct, but the taxi from the hotel back to the airport tried to sting us for E24.99. Make sure you ask before you get in the taxi how much it is likely to be - cheating taxi drivers are a worldwide phenomenon!

Room Tip: All rooms face the street and look out onto Teatro da Trindade, a beautiful old theatre.

I found this to be a charming alternative to mainstream city centre hotels in Baixa, at a materially lower price point.

Room was spotlessly clean and fitted out to a high quality in a very individual, bold and wholly unconventional style (though I have to confess my preference is probably for more mainstream finishes). The bathroom in particular was super, with bespoke fittings and materials that ~I have never seen in this context before. My room had a great view to the front over the small square, and was very quiet.

Breakfast was great, with possibly the widest array of dishes I've seen in a breakfast buffet outside of Germany or Switzerland.

The hotel's staff are arguably its greatest asset, and all were charming, helpful and enthusiastic. I was staying for business and was by this stage familiar with Lisbon's tourist and social attractions, but from conversations I overheard these guys have a passion for their city and really engage with guests to help them get the most out of their stay. A very good base, then for leisure travellers and weekend breaks, with many attractions being within walking distance.

Downsides were limited, but as a business traveller, I would have appreciated more communal/lounge space - the reception is on the second floor and is little more than a cupboard while there was no desk in the bedroom to work from. Also, access from street level is by buzzer only, meaning that I had to wait on the pavement for a couple of minutes before being let in. If I'd been in tourist mode this wouldn't have been an issue, but with the stresses of a working day ahead, it was a little bit irksome.

Overall, I would recommend Teatro B&B most highly to leisure travellers and those on weekend breaks wishing to be close to the main attractions. Those travelling for business on someone else's account might be better placed in a more mainstream hotel.

Lisbon is a wonderful city to enjoy a city break holiday and Teatro the most perfect place to stay to make the whole experience faultless. Recently opened, great care has been taken to create a sophisticated experience. Every room has been lovingly designed with it's own character based on the theater: Harlequin, Columbine etc. The spaces are relatively small and the designers have been clever to create the sense of space by using mirrors and glass walls. This is an adult's place and certainly not suitable for young children. The location was excellent, right by the metro and in the heart of the evening action. Breakfast was astounding. It was a 5 star affair but better because it was full of interesting things to tempt you, not just the standard. Think groaning sideboard and you have the picture, they did not have enough space for all the food on offer. I stayed for three nights and did not manage to try everything! The staff were delightful and could not have done more for you. All in all it was clear a great deal of loving care has been put into creating the Teatro experience. I hope they can keep up the high standard. I really want to go back for more!

We have booked a 3 night stay at the Teatro bb. The hotel was a great surprise : the location is perfect to enjoy Lisbon both during the day and the night, the room is modern and cosy, the bed very comfortable and the staff not just helpful but they really cared for us and our comfort. On top of that, the breakfast deserves a particular positive mention... just try it! Everything was perfect... We really loved this place, we just left and are already looking forward to coming back! Thanks a lot, guys!
