Stayed 3 nights at the end of April. Hotel was built around 1943 and the style and quality of the decor in the rooms is of that period and very tasteful. Beautiful wooden floors in the lounge area of the hotel and what seemed like antique cork floors in the bedrooms which is warm, soft and quiet. Bathrooms well appointed with lots of marble on the floor and walls, high quality towels and good quality Molton Brown toiletries. The period features of the hotel have been well maintained and any updates sensitively done. Comfortable beds which coupled with the quiet street meant good sleep quality.
The hotel is on a side street half way up Avenida and its only a 10 minute walk to Rossio (sort of the centre of Lisbon) and a couple of minutes walk to Avenida Metro station, where the Airport Bus 91 stops.
Some very reasonable cost restaurants nearby (on the next street away from Avenida) which have quite acceptable food.
The pastries, fresh fruit, muesli etc. at the Britania breakfast were great, though the hot breakfast was a bit of a letdown. However, they do have a Nespresso machine so the coffee was excellent.
Needless to say the hotel was spotless.
Can't imagine staying anywhere other than the Britania if we ever return to Lisbon.
The staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant.
