“It lived up to expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2011

The service was friendly and the staff went out of their way to help with queries e.g the transport system, booking water trips etc, the hotel was as charming as the images on the web site suggests, and the air conditioned bedroom (with sea view) was very comfortable with plenty of storage space. The bathoom was spacious and well appointed with soap and shampoo replaced when used. The library with balcony looked out on to the sea and caught the evening breeze - which was appreciated given the lovely weather in June.
Hard to say what was best - perhaps the leisurely breakfast (until noon) in the garden/courtyard. What was worst - the list of local restuarants was a little out of date - one had closed so we had an abortive trip.
Would recommend the hotel

Recommended by 2 different friends and drawn by the location which was across the street from the Palácio Condes d'Óbidos, where we attended a wedding, we stayed 3 nights in this small and charming hotel. We liked in particular: friendliness of staff combined with relaxing and comforting atmosphere, breakfast in the garden/courtyard (until noon!) with warm and cold options for everyone including Nespresso coffee machine, 3rd floor balcony terrace overlooking the river and with honesty bar (including kitchen where you could make a pot of tea). Complimentary WI-FI. The Ancient Art Museum is next door (free admission with hotel check-in card). Overall, we felt very much at home.

We stayed here because of the other reviews. From the outside, the hotel is unpretentious and I was a bit aprenhensive, it seems like there are two old houses joined together. Inside the service is fantastic, the decoration is very nice and the rooms couldn't be nicer. The roof garden and the library offer a nice place to relax. Although I prefer a minimalist decoration, the library is cozy, it has few tables, a sofa, a minibar, and opens to a roof garden. The breakfast buffet is superb, including vino espumante. And on the back of the entry there is a small garden with a 3-4 story ivy-covered wall. Very romantic.
As with any boutique hotel, it does not have a gym or a pool, it is rather intimate and personal. Ana (or Anna) was very helpful providing lots of information.
It is 15-20 min walk to downtown and 60 min walk to Belem, yet public transportation is very good.
There are few steps here and there to get into the hotel and to our room. Ours was looking at the street. I wished we had one looking at the ocean, but it was not noise and we slept well. In the room there is a bottle of Porto which was a nice touch. Wireless internet is available throughout the hotel.
Don't rent a car to stay in the city. I wouldn't rent bikes either. The hotel and Lisbon in general is not easy for people that have knee problems, need a cane or have problems walking. I also recommend flat heels and tennis shoes to walk around. Yet, the hotel itself is very elegant.

Just spent 3 days at this quaint little hotel on Janeslas Verdes (Green windows) street in Lisbon. Everything was great, very quiet hotel inside, and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Very clean. There is a great library on the 3rd floor with an honour bar and a large balcony overlooking the city and the river which is a great place to relax after a hard day of sightseeing. Reasonable rates if you book on expedia. A modest breakfast is served downstairs, with fresh squeezed orange juice and a great Nespresso coffee machine. Take your breakfast on a tray and eat at one of the tables in the little garden in the back. Location is good, the # 25 tram will have you in the town center in 10 minutes, and there is little newspaper store down the street that will sell you an all day pass. #25 takes you to the ever popular tram #28, which is a great way to see the city. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden are quieter

Found this hotel at the last minute through a discount site - got a great deal - and was SO pleasantly surprised! It was just the perfect landing place after an overnight flight to Lisbon. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful - letting us relax in the lobby - and even get into our room early - after our long flight. The hotel is in a great location - not quite in the center, but in a very nice area and within walking distance of everything. The room was on the smaller side, but it was very clean, well appointed, and had a nice view. The whole place makes you feel like home. The breakfast is great too.

Stayed for 3 nights at Janelas Verdes in April and was delighted with every aspect. I thought I had gambled on the location but actually the hotel is in a great spot and is an easy 20min walk to the heart of Lisbon. In fact, Lisbon is fairly compact so we ended up walking to most places only using the good tram system sparingly.

Our room was a good size and in perfect condition with temperature control and all the comforts you would expect (I particularly liked the complementary decanter of port). And it was silent at night.

The hotel has a comfortable lounge downstairs and a great library with terrace on the top floor. There is an honesty bar system up there so we could enjoy G&T's on the terrace as the sun went down each evening before heading out to dinner.

The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful, recommending in good English anything we asked of them. Including dinner at the Alma restaurant, which is just 5 mins walk from the hotel and served us possibly the finest meal I've ever eaten at less than half the price you would pay in London. Outstanding.

Breakfast was good and could be taken in the pretty courtyard at the back, but at EUR 14 each you may wish to make sure this is included in your room price. All in all a great experience, congratualtions to everyone at As Janelas Verdes.

A magic place with helpful, smiling staff; a breakfast buffet spelling out FEAST not FAST, a little garden hidden away with a murmuring fountain and surrounded by walls covered in greenery. The room large, comfy, immaculate clean, a bathroom with Molton Brown products and wonderful thick towels, again, cleaning of the best. We enjoyed the dreamy library with old, well worn seating and a great view over the sea and harbour. About 20' on foot from Lisbon centre, or you take the tram or taxi. Staff couldn't have been kinder, everybody was smiling - something we appreciate all the more as this is not the usual reception you get here. We had a special birthday to celebrate and our wedding anniversary and we got even spoilt with a bottle of Porto and lovely, old glasses. A honesty bar is offering espresso, wines, drinks, snacks and is being filled every day; honestly, you couldn't ask for more if you tried! Can't wait to go back and re-live that experience! Obrigada :)
