Although there was a washbasin and shower in the room I had to go down the corridor to the toilet. The shower curtains were dirty.

Great location - lacks comfort and basic facilties
Let's start with the good. The location is amazing - right by Rossio in the heart of Baixa. The staff also tried hard and were friendly, unfortunately they didn't have much to work with. We saw cleaners every day of our stay there. They didn't come into our room (our choice) but they were present. No the not so good: It was 33 degrees and the air conditioning was broken. Not all rooms have air conditioning - only those on the 4th floor - and it was broken when we arrived and wasn't fixed by the time we left. (The kind lady at reception gave us her fan and we were very grateful for this, but it was still very hot). About 12 hours into our stay the internet went down, and we were without wifi for the rest of our time there. The bed was incredibly hard and there was one kind of ok pillow and the other was barely existent. My partner likes firm beds but even he was reaching for the ibuprofen in the morning. I had to take a lot of painkillers everyday after sleeping on it. There are 2 sockets in the room, one of which was so high up I couldn't reach it. The place is generally run down. You have to give in your key every time you leave the property, however there is no safe in the room, which leads to safety concerns. Generally I'd advise you to pay a bit extra and go somewhere with more comfort and facilities.

Fine - unless the weather is hot
The room was small, with a little balcony. Everything was clean, there is a shower and sink in the room, and then two toilets in another room which is shared with around 6 other rooms- this was never a problem. The hotel is very central which is convenient for visiting Lisbon. You need to hand your key in to reception every time you leave, and pick it up when you return - this is really weird, but was never an issue really as there was always somebody at reception. Biggest issue for us was that the air conditioner in the room doesnt work - i spoke with a person in a neighbouring room who advised theirs was also not working. So top tip is do not stay here if the weather forecast is anything above 25 degrees- or you wont be able to sleep.

The place has potential. Budget stay.
The staff was very friendly. I think some people might have walked away the moment they are told to turn in keys every time before leaving. The light didn’t work in my bathroom :/ I guess I could have told them to fix it but that’s not my job. Also my top bed sheet had hair and crumbs on top of it. I was too tired to have them change it for me (again, not my job). It had a nice romantic feel about it (the windows and armoire). If guests need air conditioning this isn’t the place for them. I didn’t feel that great about the stay. I doubt I will ever stay there again, but who knows, maybe I’ll still be broke in another ten years. Oh yea, location is awesome.

Location is perfect to explore lisbon and close to all the attractions, places to eat and shopping. The room itself with private shower room was very basic furniture was substandard and with stains. Only one socket by the door. Shower room was very small and smelt a bit of urine...looked clean enough...hairs on d bed throw...shutters and wood panels in very bad condition...and the smell from the indian restaurant downstairs quite fan or aircon so a sleepless night...bed was comfy enough...ok for 1 night but very tireing so if you have a busy day after consider a different hotel!

Great value.
The room and bathroom are dated and small but adequate. We had no view but that’s not what we were there for. The customer service is top notch. The area is also very good for walking and easy to get to sightseeing.
