Location

It’s impossible to be more central. I often recommend this hotel to first-time visitors, as it overlooks the city’s central square, is walking distance to any number of sights, restaurants and bars, and is within easy access to anywhere in town.

Bedrooms

The rooms are decked out in classic 1920s' furnishings, with cream shades offset by mahogany dressers and armchairs. I’ve heard complaints of the square-facing rooms being noisy but I only noticed the buoyant hum of a busking accordion player when I stayed.

Public areas

A marble staircase winds up through the hotel. There’s also a small reception and lobby with a couple of sofas.

Eating and drinking

There’s a small bar, which serves pretty good Portuguese wine and port.

Service

This hotel has been around for a while and it shows in its excellent service. The receptionist is always extremely helpful in helping out with local information.

Who stays there

Sightseeing first-timers looking to get the best out of central Lisbon.

Price advice

There are special deals available if you stay more than one night.
