Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Located in the middle of the city center, very close to metro and tram lines, we have got a very nice stay. Rooms are very clean, have great beds and the breakfast was more than fine!
Very nice staff!

It's right on Figueira square in the heart of Lisbon.
We took 4-beds apartment and from 1 bedroom we had perfect view to the square but the other bedroom is without windows at all so it was dark and stuffy.
Metro station Rossio, tourist bus and trams No.12 (castle) and 15 (Belem) is right beside the hotel. Very friendly owner. Free wifi.
Actually it's quite acceptable option in the very center but do not expect anything fancy.

Located close to the action
A very warm welcome with a glass of port and a nice chat with a nice man who can speak half a dozen of languages :)

Very clean room & towels
Shower & sink in the room with toiletries
Small TV
Nothing fancy but clean and practical

The breakfast was a nice surprise! Sunny breakfast room and a large, varied, continental breakfast.
Quiet city & view on a large place, yet again very quiet

I would recommend it without hesitation to anyone looking for a room in this price range

The entrance is not very prepossessing, but the rooms are clean and well equipped, the owner is extremely friendly and helpful and best of all the location could not be bettered - right in the heart of town, metres from the metro. Breakfast is good and included in the price, owner will happily look after your bags after checkout (not always true of budget places). Only slight negative is the wifi which although free seemed to struggle with demand at peak times and dropped out quite a bit.

Overall though, an extremely good value stay that is highly recommended.

This review is a bit late in coming, but this is the first opportunity I've had to write it.

I've stayed at this place twice now: by myself in October 2013 and, with my son, in December 2013, and when I next return to Lisbon, I'll likely stay there again.

What I liked most about this family-run pensao was, in fact, the family who runs it: very warm, very welcoming, and very accommodating.

This is an historical building, located in the older section of Lisbon, and, like many other historical buildings, has no elevator. (The information I myself received from the pensao clearly stated that there was no elevator. I think at least one of the booking agencies also mentions this as well, so people who book at the Figueira, then arrive with huge amounts of luggage and start whining about the place having no elevator warrant very little sympathy.)

The building is also very secure, being locked from what seems dusk to dawn. Security cameras ensure that only registered guests (and the pensao's employees) who upon pressing the buzzer are allowed in.

The rooms I had were spacious, clean and comfortable. The TV had about six channels, all in Portuguese, but that was of minor consequence because if I wanted a news update, I could simply access the pensao's free WiFi service and check out the news on my iPod.

The location of this pensao couldn't be better. It's right on the perimeter of Praca da Figueira, close to buses, subway, trams, taxis and cafés. It's also within very easy walking distance of several major tourist attractions. And, it's very close to the airport bus stop.

When I stayed there in October, there was no breakfast option, but that wasn't a problem as there were several nearby pastelarias.

By the time I returned in December, the pensao was being renovated and a breakfast option had been introduced.

To the extent possible, the staff answered most of my 'touristy' questions. I think it would be unreasonable to expect them to answer every possible question a tourist might have, particularly given that there is a tourism bureau less than a 5-minute walk away.

Special praise to the young woman (with the little daughter) who mans the front desk mostly during 'off hours' - great smile and very helpful indeed! (Sorry, I don't think I ever caught her name.)

Would I recommend this place? Without a doubt!
