The staff here are fantastic, with a special ❤️ shout out for Vera. She is so friendly, warm and did everything to make us feel comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious. Across the street is the Mercado Ribeira and the Time Out restaurant hub. Very convenient! Do bring earplugs though! Thank you for a wonderful stay, Vera!

We stayed 4 nights, room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. our window looked out to the food market. The area around the hotel was pretty dirty and lots of rubbish and empty beer bottles.

This is a great little B&B in a central location. However you should be aware that the area is a bit rundown just now, the derelict building next door is currently being worked on, whilst the building opposite remains empty. It's an easy walk to the main Market which is great for evening meals, and to the central district. It's... More

The hotel location is perfect in Lisbon: located not far from the metro station Cais Do Sodre and the Timeout Ribeira market (quite expensive though), the hotel is located in a nice and renovated building of Lisbon. Room is basic, with a city view, nice and clean, and comfortable (the mattress was a bit too soft for us). The staff... More

The hotel is quite noisy since it is at the back of the market hall, at the same time this is also the advantage of hotel: the location, plenty of restaurants nearby, close to the trainstation to Cascais / Metrostation to the city.

Lovely, clean and efficient inside, but set in a well restored old building in a traditional, but vibrant district. You are just across the road from the Mercado Ribeira - half traditional market and half "Time Out" eating place, with a great selection of eateries. The organisation of the hotel is very efficient. Breakfast is good. The staff are the... More

Great place, great location, great staff! The rooms are clean. The breakfast is great (Better than most dinner places actually). The place has a cozy, homie feel and if you go with the right partner you will have great sex too- The walls are thick enough. Highly recommended.

The location of this place is perfect for walking around Lisbon and also to transport links. We only had one night here but would definitely stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu was once by the river… Actually only the Mercado da Ribeira and the Cais do Sodre station separate the fully renovated building of the Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu from the River Tagus. Most of the tiles from the 19th Century were renovated and can be seen from various points of the communal areas and also in some double and family suites. Take the lift to the 4th floor and simply use the stair to go up to the 5th floor, where you will find the best view at the Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu. There is nothing better than friendly and dedicated staff to welcome you and serve you a delicious home-made breakfast where you will have the opportunity of watching the ships go by, crossing under the 25th of April Bridge along with looking out to the Cristo Rei always on the lookout for any movement. Then, filled with energy you may begin your visit of Lisbon through the neighbourhoods of Chiado, Baixa and Bairro Alto which are less than a 10 minute walk-away from the Guesthouse, or if you prefer, you may also get on the No. 15 tram or the No. 28 tram to Alfama and Belem. Follow your instinct... we are waiting for you ! ... more   less
