“fantastic location”
Reviewed 6 June 2011

Airport bus or even 745 and 44 to Rossio Square next door. 15E to Congress Center, 28E to Alfama/Castello, plus Lisbon is a walking town. No elevator and alley can be noisy, but overall clean and pleasant with good common areas, Wifi weakish upstairs but adequate

Good things:
• Great location – right in the middle of things! Everything is within a short walking distance. This is the hotels greatest asset.
• Lots of cafes and restaurants in the immediate area.
• The rooms overlooking the square have incredible views on life in Lisbon.
• A hop-on/hop-off bus stops almost right in front of the hotel.
• The common toilet on my floor was kept clean.
• The girls manning the front desk were always helpful.
• They have different categories of rooms: a conventional hotel room with a full bathroom, and another type of room with only a sink & shower (toilet in common area). It’s nice to have an option a grade up from a hostel, but not pay for a full hotel room.
• Free WIFI internet – and it worked great!

Bad things:
• You need to talk up 3-4 flights to your room – ugh! And these are tall steps because the building has tall ceilings.
• My room was tiny with only 1-3 feet walking area around the bed – literally.
• The hot water is mostly non-existent. I stayed there five days and got hot water only in two-minute increments (and I had to wait 5-10 minutes before getting anymore). I reported this issue several times to the front desk, and the owner was in my room one time for 15 minutes trying to fix it, but he was unsuccessful. The floor I was staying on uses an electric insta-hot water heater and it kept tripping off for some reason. I learned to take really, really quick showers.

I was very plesant with this "Pension", I can say it's more an "hotel " than "pension", the sataff was perfect, the rooms very very nice and clean, the WI-FI it's good to, and the situations perfect, excelent place to stay, I will be back again, thanks to every body.

There are two flights of steps before you reach the pensao office. Apparently thieves know this, the building door is always open, and theives follow you up the steps to snatch your purse from behind. The pensao office was totally disinterested in hearing about this. Second, it seems the credit card machine doesn't work when you go to check out and you must pay in cash. For us, a larger bill, and we had to run around hitting several ATM's to gather the amount. Of course this also made our departure later than planned to catch our transportation and meant we had to travel low on cash. Again, no apologies, just get the cash. Rooms and location fine but know the establishment you're dealing with. Internet service very spotty and really doesn't work unless you're adjacent to the office or on the stairs.

This Pensao is a great place to stay in Lisbon - a brilliant location with a 10 minute easy walk to any of the Bairro's and attractions. A few stairs to get up to the rooms, but a good sized room with everything you need. We were facing out onto the street, but still very quiet at night, and the staff are very friendly.

My husband and I were very happy here. Our room was spotless, and the adjoining bathroom was very nice. It's small, but the location couldn't be better.

Good things: this 'pensao' is located in the very heart of the city centre (Baixa) next to the main square Rossio . Ask for a room with private bathroom and a window on the square's side..you'll enjoy a great view of the castle on your right and the quiet but busy life going on the square Figueira form which you can easily catch a tram, bus or metro. Friendly and helpful staff .
Bad things: very steep stairs to reach the rooms located on the 3rd floor of an ancient building . They change sheets and towels every day but they are not so clean so..bring your personal ones!
