Great location
Catherine, gb1 night trip
Very good 8,0
Thin walls, chilly shower!!
Good location, beautiful old palace, great breakfast but paper thin walls. Young adults were hanging out at the corner right below our window, singing, partying-you could clearly hear conversations. Water in the shower was cold at prime shower time. I knew this was an older building and we did enjoy it despite those things.

Charming hotel!
We had a wonderful stay in Lisbon and absolutely loved our hotel, it was very charming. They offered a dinner with Fado and it was lovely. I will warn that if you have a lot of luggage the stairs are pretty steep and there are many of them. It wasn’t a problem for us, but others might not like it. We would definitely stay here again!

Charming Portuguese quirkiness, brilliant!
Beautiful hotel. Most hotels nowadays say nothing, once you step in you could anywhere in the world, inside one of the thousands of bland, anonymous hotels with a clean, modern, standardised decoration. This one screams old Lisbon, chaotic, creative, random decoration rather than a carefully studied theme dictated by an interior designer and purchased in a one stop shop. Be ready to climb steps, go through narrow corridors, experience the usual services of a hotel in a very different way. Delightfully shocking I’d say. We loved it. And the location is great.

Excellent experience
This place was great!! I was a little hesitant with the reviews, but no need to be. The staff was very friendly, offered quick check in with a tour that ended with our room which turned out to be spotless! This place is in the heart of Lisbon, but quiet enough for a restful night.the breakfast in the morning was delicious. I would highly recommend this place.
