The best hotel of our trip!
I spent too much time reading reviews of different hotels in Lisbon and when I was about to book the Botanic Hotel, I came across this one and couldn't be happier.
We were upgraded to a suite. The room was clean, confortable and spacious, with a separate sitting area. The bed was really confotmable, the shower was great and the hotel provided nice toiletries.
The staff was very nice and helpful, always ready to answer our questions and provide suggestions.
Breakfast was really good, a la carte, and not some buffet with eggs that have been sitting there for some time. All is prepared when you order, and they had pancakes! Plus, they give you a nice basket of bread and muffins (we actually took some with us, which later served as a snacks ;)
The area is really close to Barrio Alto and Baixa, and a couple of minutes from the metro and other train stations where you can take the tram to Belem or the train to Sintra. One thing to note is that, like most of Lisbon, the hotel is up a hill. We felt safe coming back late at night, as there are always people walking around. Also, the hotel is close to a plaza that has a small craft market in the weekend.
Finally, they offer free access to the web at the lobby.
