A really nice concept hotel in a renovated old school. The school theme is displayed throughout the hotel with info on blackboards and old educational posters in the rooms. The rooms are tasteful and spacious and the staff is very friendly and helpful. But sometimes one gets the impression that there are small things which should be improved. Some examples: there was no soap for washing hands, the shampoo and shower gel and the toilet paper were not replaced. These things are of course minor, but in order to live up to the standard of Small Luxury Hotels even small faults count.
The hotel is situated near the beautiful Jardim Guerra Junqueiro and the imposing Basilica da Estrela. conntection to downtown Lisbon works fine with the nr 28 tram.
I do recommend this hotel.

I have lived at this lovelly hotel with my family (wife and 3 year-old child) for more than 3 months (before, I had lived at Chiado, a very touristic place in Lisbon). I think it is a great advantage to be here, because you can have a more authentic stay in Portugal. The beatifull place has been restored lately, so it is a perfect blend of modern and traditional Portuguese style. It is near a beautiful public garden called Jardim da Estrela. The rooms are very spacious and clear and are always well cleaned. The staff is very kind, helpfull and efficient. I think it is, by far, the best choice to stay in Lisbon!!

I stayed here for 2 nights while on a business trip to Lisbon with colleagues. Charming boutique hotel, clearly very new, with an interesting theme (school!). Quiet but walking distance to old centre, also tram stop close by. Service friendly. Very good value for money, clean and cosy. Just a couple of minor niggles with the room: first, whenever I took a shower the water didn`t drain but sat in pools on the side of the bath, or on the floor (they are trying to sort this out apparently). Second, my room overlooked a small outside terrace, which meant I had to keep blinds down for privacy. But there are rooms with a different view.
Would highly recommend, and the restaurant where you pay what you think the food is worth!

Room Tip: Ask for room on higher floor, and/or facing street

Just came back from Hotel da Estrela and have to say it completely lived up to the reviews I read prior to checking in. You must stay here if you are visiting Lisboa! This is a fabulous boutique hotel, with a clever school house theme. It's decor is modern and functional. The service is outstanding. Each of the staff we encountered were sincere, helpful and friendly.
The queen-bed room is a very generous size and the room appointment is very modern, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is surprisingly large for a European hotel so I think most North American visitors will be pleasantly surprised!
Location is fantastic. The Estrela neighbourhood is a little quieter than the Bairro Alto or the Alfama so it's a great little oasis in Lisbon and very easy to walk to many restaurants, cafe's, the beautiful Estrela garden, the tram 28 station and also close to the Rato metro station if you want to hop the subway.
Wifi is free in the main hotel areas such as the lobby and the bar (which is very cool and quiet). Also there is free cable internet in the rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a queen-size room!

Stayed there for three nights. Did not find a single negative things that could cloud my very favorable impression about hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful (thanks, Isabelle!) in your quest to know the city. The room is spacious even by American standards. Location is discreet, but close to the attractions. Morning breakfast is what you expect from such a great place! Really happy.Will be coming back for sure.
