The hotel is located in an old convent, transformed into a hotel in 1890 by two ladies from Yorkshire, hence the name. Preserving the charm of these century old surroundings, particularly the lovely courtyard with its walls overgrown by vines, the hotel rooms are equipped with everything you would expect from a modern design hotel. The hotel is relatively small and hence maintains a family-type atmosphere. The in-house restaurant is pretty good, specializing in Portuguese cuisine. Moreover, a number of decent local restaurants are in walking distance. To get to the main attractions of Lisbon, you will need public transport or a taxi, but the latter are quite cheap in Lisbon compared to most other capitals. The only down-side of the hotel is that you have to climb some 50 steps to reach the entrance level, thus not recommended for those needing a wheelchair or otherwise unable to master stairs.
