“Great place to start a trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2009

First stop after a long trip we arrived early in the morning, before check-in time and the hotel staff was warm, friendly and accomodating, settling us in our room. Rooms were modern, clean and perfect for a first stop. Staff was knowledgable and helpful in every way.

This hotel was an unbelievable 'find' from TripAdvisor. As well as being artistically and architecturally fantastic (if you are a fan of Art Deco is is simply beautiful) the rooms are superb, the service excellent with nothing too much trouble, and breakfast delicious. The location is fantastic, being about 5 minutes walk from the metro, and the Avenida de Liberdade is just around the corner. If you haven't been to Lisbon, please go as it is a gorgeous city, and if you go, I strongly recommend staying here.

Britania Hotel was a great pick for our honeymoon stay. The staff were very accommodating and nice. They gave us a bottle of champagne for our room due to the special occasion and helped us pick out great places to hang out at night. Would definitely come back!

We stayed at Hotel Britania with my wife on our honey moon and we were very happy with the hotel. It is an excellent hotel with a beautiful interior decoration. The service was very friendly. We had a fantastic room upgrade, it was very special. And we were served a bottle of champagne because of our honey moon. The hotel is located in the city center so you can walk to most places. We certainly recommend Hotel Britania!

Stayed here for 5 nights at the end of October based on the positive reviews here in TA. The room was spacious by European standards, clean and quiet.

The hotel staff for the most part were outstanding however one front desk person really was lazy and his inaction led to a few problems. One night we asked him to call a taxi to take us to the Barrio Alto Hotel, he told us just go out and get one ourselves. In the evening we preferred the hotel to call a taxi so we were sure the driver knew where we were going, this evening the driver took us almost half way to the airport because he thought we said the Marriott, a 7 E error. We also asked for restaurant recommendations in the Barrio Alto and he told us just walk around and find one where there are locals. We asked the front desk at the Barrio Alto for recommendations and they sent us to a fabulous place right around the corner from the hotel, they could not have been more helpful. We do have to compliment all the other staff, they were helpful and great advisers on where to go and eat. I am embarrassed to say we never obtained her name but the young woman who was at the front desk most days was excellent, she knew our names and always had time to help us and advise us.

I would also say the breakfast was not worth the price but we knew it was not included in our room rate and ate their the first 2 days until we ventured down the street and had a similar breakfast for 10 E for the 2 of us.

The location was fine perhaps a few blocks further from the center than we would have preferred but it only added an extra 5 minutes to the walk.

The bartenders were excellent and we had great conversations about their childhoods in Brazil.

We met a number of other guests and enjoyed our conversations with fellow Americans and number of wonderful British couples.

We would defiantly stay here again if we returned to Lisbon.

Thank you, Tripadvisor, for steering us here! Your previous reviewers are right - this must be the best place in town in this price range. We agree with the 'niggles', too. A second bedside table and good reading lights would have been nice. Otherewise the place is near-perfect, though we agree that breakfast is overpriced (and, please note, never included in the room rate), so we decided to have a coffee and pasteis de nata at Bela Ipanema across the Avenue instead. We will return to the Britania for the warmth of its welcome, the size and comfort of the rooms, its excellent location and the professionalism of its staff.
