Great location for sight seeing and restaurants/bars. The hotel is full of art deco charm, including the furniture in the huge bedroom. The free cakes and Port in the afternoon was a great idea before getting ready to out in the evening.

Great hotel, wonderful 1940's decor but completely up to date. Stayed 2 nights. The room was spacious and comfortable and the wifi was free. The location is central and the staff attentive. I would not consider staying anywhere else in Lisbon.

Can only reinforce previous comments. The friendliest reception / door staff we have come across - nothing was too much trouble. Quiet location off main street with excellent transport links, buffet breakfast really good to set you up for a day's sightseeing. Good size bedroom with lovely comfy bed and aircon ( needed as temp didn't drop below 20c during our stay) Heartily recommend this hotel and deserves it's Tripadvisor rating.

For over a week our stay at the Britania never ceased to please! The location is a few steps from the Metro, bus and tram lines you will need to move smoothly around Lisbon and get to and from the airport. You can walk through traditional neighborhoods and eat in local family run restaurants nearby. The hotel itself is not like anything you have ever experienced with a full bar, afternoon Port with tea and sweets, a sumptuous and healthy breakfast buffet and the warmest, caring and informed staff one could wish for. It is an elegant tribute to a past lifestyle ripe with detail and decorum.

My wife and I had a lovely experience in this hotel. 1-Location: it's in a quiet side street, but just 500 m from the Metro station and 10 minute walk thru a clean and beautiful promenade to the heart of Lisbon. 2-Service: The staff are really smart & helpful. 3-Rooms: very spacious, comfy and clean bathroom. 4-Breakfast: it was not included in our deal but we tried it and it was one of the best with a very reasonable price. We would surely get back.

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.

Room Tip: We were in Room 45 which was just fine. But I doubt if there's a bad room in the house.
