Location was fine, walking distance to get to tours around the city and close enough to the ocean. The night I stayed property offered dinner with live fado music at night with wine included. While I didn't really enjoyed food ( it was just OK compare to other food I had in Portugal), but fado music was good and wine was fine too. For 25 euros I paid for it I was happy to get what I got and best part it was right inside of property, I didn't have to go anywhere, I was tired at the end of a day. Staff is great, helps with luggage and everything you need. Breakfast is really great. There is a very beautiful common area were they serve breakfast and I enjoyed an hour or two in front of fireplace there in the evening before dinner.
Room a little small, but house has a lot of history and taking into consideration a big common area I was fine. I didn't spent much time in room anyway. I read some complains about stairs, but I stayed in diamond 2 room and didn't have any issues with stairs. What could be better - would be nice if they offered an extra blanked in room - some properties offer it -have it somewhere stored in a closed if you are cold. For me it was a little cold at night. Maybe I could ask staff about it - I never did.
The selection was very good. Loved the cake and juices being available throughout the day
Stayed there for 3 nights. It was the same selection each morning. A little variety would have been nice.
We stayed in room 2, a tiny twin (8 m²) on the ground floor adjacent to the quiet backyard where birds were singing in the morning. This rooms offers a budget opportunity to experience the charm of this 16th cent building and great team that runs it, I also like the idea of mixing travelers from the luxurious to more affordable. I cannot see any reason not to stay here, the location is great, close to Tram 28 and the metro, breakfast awesome, character unique and shared rooms (a reading room, another with fireplace) just unique. Don't miss out on this, I'm certain to return next time.
It took time to figure out how the shower works.
Fabulous hotel in a wonderful city! Fantastic location by Praca Luis de Camoes in the heart of Bairro Alto. We walked around the heart of Lisbon, to Baixa, Alfama etc. Loaded with character - originally a wealthy Spice Merchants house. Friendly staff, willing to chat. Great breakfast, with pianist. Fado meal one evening. Hot Tub & Massage. Our (premium) balcony room on 3rd floor was quiet. Bed was comfortable. 42 bedrooms apparently.
Our room was 'compact' - the 'grand' old room had obviously been divided into 2 bedrooms with en-suites. Clothes storage was limited (hanging space only in wardrobe, no chest of drawers, small side tables). Other bedrooms were along a rabbit warren of stairs and corridors - all part of the character of the place. We did wonder if some guests were in another building as some arrived at breakfast in coats. There are lots of stairs to climb - although they said a lift was planned in a refurb next year or so.
Excellent everything (especially breakfast) except for one thing
Breakfast, location, cleanliness, the super helpful staff ... all of it meeting much beyond expectations. The live music with breakfast (piano one day, sax the other) was a nice touch, and the library in the evening for reading was perfect.
Not a quiet hotel, at all, and so for the light sleeper, a better spot is needed (especially for New Year’s Eve when the streets party til 6am).
