“Basic but great value and great location in the center of Lisbon”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

This hotel is very good for the price and it is in the center of Lisbon. You can walk just about anywhere. The staff is very friendly and helpful. As soon as we checked in they gave us a welcome drink which was a good port wine and they also gave us a map of Lisbon and circled places of interest and wrote down how to get there and which method of transportation we could use if we chose to (most were within walking distance). Our flight arrived in Lisbon at 7am and even though check in is at noon they let us check in early and we had a room ready by 9am. We checked out around 10am but our flight wasn't until 7pm. They put our bags in a closet behind the front desk and we were able to keep touring Lisbon without having to carry our luggage with us until we returned to pick up our luggage and catch our flight. The rooms are very basic but are very clean and in good condition. The only downfall is that the hotel is at the top of a hill but other than that everything else was great!

For what I paid, this hotel was very good. The location is almost perfect, the only thing that lets it down is the fact that it is on the top of the hill. It is right in the centre and you can walk almost everywhere! The rooms are basic (to be expected for a 3 star hotel, I guess), but more than sufficient for a weekend stay. They could do with refurbishing in reality as they look quite dated but the cleanliness cannot be faulted. The breakfast is great value and I was shocked by how much choice there is, but it stops at 10am which I think is quite soon for weekends based on other hotels I've stayed in. Recommendable and would consider staying here again if I were to return to Lisbon.

The hotel is one of the best valued I have stayed in. It was a great price for its location, right in the city centre and everything was walkable. The service at the hotel was excellent, as were the cleanliness of the basic but sufficient room. A real little Jem!

I recently spent a few days at Botanico Hotel, the location is what sets this hotel apart from most as it’s in a fantastic location. Walking up the hills of Lisbon was a pleasure and walking up a hill to this hotel again was an absolute pleasure. The service was your standard hotel service, kept clean, fresh sheets and new towels every day. My room was next to the lift door which I thought may mean a few wake ups in the night however I never once was woken and barely even heard the lift. The staff were always helpful, I required a taxi on my departure and the guy spoke great English ordering me the taxi which arrived promptly.

I chose this hotel because of its location close to the barrio alto. We loved the fact that every time we walked up or down the hill to the hotel we noticed something else (snack bar, tapas bar, jazz club etc). The room and bathroom were clean and spacious. The staff were extremely helpful, booking taxis, reserving restaurants and giving us directions. The breakfast was adequate and the coffee and breads great.

This hotel, was great value for money.

We stayed here in January and were not bothered by street or hotel noise. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed our stay in Lisbon.

my friend and spent 4 nights in lisbon and we had a great time.we chose this hotel for its location to the barrio alto and its very near the av da liberdade with its lovely shops.it took us 10 minutes to walk into the barrio alto where we ate out in the evening and visited the bars there. the street comes out at the miradouro de sao pedro de alcantara.the rooms were large, comfortable and clean.we did not take breakfast but there is a small cafe just down from the hotel where we had tea and cake. the hotel staff were very helpful, polite and spoke english.when we got to the hotel very early at 0900 we were given welcome drinks of juice and water and was able to leave our cases in a locked room which was useful as we went sightseeing and exploring the immediate area. our rooms were on the 3rd floor and had the early morning sun.all in all it was just what we wanted and as the other reviewers said good value for money.

The amenities were simple, but regarding that I was in Lisbon to see sights and not to spend time in a hotel, there were everything that was needed. The room was clean, and though the hotel was close to the city centre, there wasn't much noise from the street. The breakfast was satisfactory and staff friendly.
