The Room was spacious, simple and charming. The Guesthouse is located in a quiet street near the metro station cas de soudré which is very convenient as you can take the Metro from the airport. Cas de Soudré is the final station and from there it is but a five minutes walk to the Guesthouse. The staff is helpful and truly gives good advice. We first were a bit sceptical when they recommended their other guesthouse (the Belvedere) for dinner, but we did not regret it: it was really a lovely and excellent dinner.
The guesthouse is very close to the city center: about a ten minutes walk, and just behind the fruit and flower market. Apart from one night when the restaurant in the opposite building was having a ball it was quiet and we had a good rest.
The breakfast contains fruits, bread, porutguese pastry and an excellent coffee. Their home made Jam is really delicious. But it is more a southern European breaktfast with a sweet tooth. Though I enjoyed the fact to have a good excuse to indulge in the Portuguese pastry.
Finally the area is very safe - as is Lisbon. And I must say, being a citizen from the Heart of Europe: from all Southern Europeans the Portuguese really won me over: So enjoy Lisbon, their kind inhabitants and this lovely guesthouse.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu was once by the river… Actually only the Mercado da Ribeira and the Cais do Sodre station separate the fully renovated building of the Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu from the River Tagus. Most of the tiles from the 19th Century were renovated and can be seen from various points of the communal areas and also in some double and family suites. Take the lift to the 4th floor and simply use the stair to go up to the 5th floor, where you will find the best view at the Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu. There is nothing better than friendly and dedicated staff to welcome you and serve you a delicious home-made breakfast where you will have the opportunity of watching the ships go by, crossing under the 25th of April Bridge along with looking out to the Cristo Rei always on the lookout for any movement. Then, filled with energy you may begin your visit of Lisbon through the neighbourhoods of Chiado, Baixa and Bairro Alto which are less than a 10 minute walk-away from the Guesthouse, or if you prefer, you may also get on the No. 15 tram or the No. 28 tram to Alfama and Belem. Follow your instinct... we are waiting for you ! ... more less
