“Centrally located no-frills hotel”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

If you want luxury, this is not the place for you. The rooms are very basic but they are clean and spacious enough. We had a room in the back so it was quiet. It als had an excellent A/C which is not a luxury in the heat of a Lisbon summer. You'll need it! The bed was comfortable but a bit small for two people (a full?). The hotel staff is very kind and helpful. The breakfast buffet has a good range of choices (eggs, bacon, french toast, breakfast rolls, jam, cereal, fruit, yogurt, coffee, OJ, tea, warm milk, etc.). The wifi connection in our room was spotty at times but they also offer two guest computers downstairs in the common area.
The hotel is centrally located in the historic part of town, within a 2 minute walk from the Hard Rock Cafe, a 3 minute walk from the metro and a 5-minute walk from the train station. The street of the hotel has plenty of little restaurants for an evening meal or drinks. If you're coming from the airport, the aerobus will take you downtown and drop you off within minutes from the hotel for 3.5 Euro/person. On the way back we took a taxi and it was also inexpensive, about 10 Euro. Overall, a great place to be in Lisbon... good location, kind service, clean but basic... but for the price (we paid 60 Euro/night for a double room), this is definitely a little treasure.

This is my third stay as Residencial Florescenter. I stayed in July 2011 and 2012. This third stay was by far the best. After enduring oppressive heat with no air conditioning in Evora and Coimbra hotels, it was wondering to have good air conditioning in Residencial Florescente. We had a wonderful, bright, clean room. The staff was helpful, especially since I had to check out at 5:30 am. The location is great. There are good restuarants close by. Highly recommended.

The location is extremely convenient for shopping and restaurants. The staff was very accommodating. Our room had an extra sitting room which was perfect for our baby to sleep. I definitely recommend this hotel for your stay!

Room Tip: It was extremely hot when we were there. Make sure you get a room with the ac unit in the same room...

I choose this hotel because of the positive trip advisor reviews AND the price (about €80 per night) and was not disappointed. Once you adjust to the particular style at receptions in Portugal - they do not multi-task - so you patiently wait your turn and will only be greeted at this point. This seems to be cultural as it happened everywhere we travelled. On the plus side, you can expect their COMPLETE attention for as long as you need when it is your turn.
We didn't particularly like our first room on the 6th floor at the back so asked to change and got a really great room on the 4th floor with wooden floors at the front of the building - great views, good sound proofing, plenty of space, comfy beds.
The staff were very friendly and overall it was a very good experience - to be recommended. Lisbon is a really great city to visit so I will be back.

Room Tip: rooms at the front have good views - not the 6th floor as it has carpets, the rest of the rooms have...

Excellent central location. The hotel is excellent quality for the price with very helpful staff. Good buffet breakfast. We stayed in Room 108 which was a nightmare, very cramped with less than a foot between the end of the bed and the wall so to access the window you have to do a crab pincer movement to it and if your over six foot like the hubbie suffer concussion hitting your head on the wall mounted tv.

what can be frustrating is running the gauntlet of waiters on the street trying to gain your custom.... this is easy remedied by turning left out of the hotel walking through the side street exiting on to Restauradores which will bring you out on Rossio.

Expect to be approached by drug sellers but this isn't a huge problem as they are not pushy or particularly invasive a 'no thank you' and they move on - but don't let this put you off.

Room Tip: If in Room 108 I'd be asking for an alternative
