“La cucaracha, ya no puede caminar”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

The hotel is not in a good shape, the closet to hand clothe is too low, too small
The room is quite clean, even if the shower is not in a very good shape
The employee's attitude is correct but not warm at all - that's a shame, you do not feel like a special guest at all. It's a shame for such a beautiful and warm city like lisbon
There was a big cockroach (cafard in french, cucaracha in spanish) one morning clinging to the wall in front of our beds !!!!!!!!! The lady from the hotel put some anti-insect spray on it but had to kill it with her shoe (which is not recommanded because cockroachs make eggs...but anyway).
This was a bit shocking, especially having a cockroach in your hotel.

We liked our stay at recidencial do sul. Recidencial is situaded near by the center of the city. The metro station is next to the hotel (metrostop intendente). The rooms were clean and the beds were ok. We were gladly surprised to see we had airconditioning. The staff is very friendly, if you have questions they are kind enough to help you. If you don't expect to much luxury this is a perfect hotel to stay, especially for this price!

If you like architecture or a hotel that is a bit different from other hotels, than this is the hotel you should choose. The room were big, clean. The balcony (a small one) and the windows were fantastic, I loved it. The room were bright by light. The location is good. The hotel is about 20 meters from a metro station. Quiet area, which is good If you like to sleep when you're tired. The staff were nice and helpful

went with my husband in may and stayed for 6 nights. the hotel had sent the simple directions on how to get there, so it was easy to find. the building is very old and looks it from the outside. on the inside, it looks like some work has been done recently and there are lovely tiles and paintings. there is also a cute little lift! we had requested for a double room on a high floor and got what we requested for. the only minus with being on the 4th (top floor) was that we were allocated a room with a roof window, so it was a bit more cramped due to the sloping ceiling and there was hardly any space beside the bed to move! also there was a small cupboard which was inadequate for our usage - there just wasn't enough room for our clothes/ belongings. we did not have any problems with the people at reception. in fact they were very friendly and helpful and gave useful suggestions re day trips, etc. the negatives were that there seemed to be only one hairdryer for the entire hotel so it was hit and miss whether i could borrow one. also the tv in the room is really antiquated and the picture quality was very poor - lines across the screen regardless of the channel. it seemed like the hotel was recently refurbished, so it was a shame to miss these little final touches which would have made it better. the hotel is great value and it was easy to get to the centre from there. there are also shops and eateries near by which was convenient. we were told about capri cafe down the road and the food was good and not too expensive. if we do return to lisbon, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at the same place again.

This is a very bad hotel, the good reviews don't reflect the kind of hotel. We reach the hotel in the afternoon and the person at the reception had a very poor appearance. The location is in a very bad part of town, I don't recommend this hotel, and I would never be back, we didn't stay there and had to look for another place.

The correct spelling should be Residencial do Sul. We reached the hotel at night & the guy at the reception was all smile. We feel so welcome after a tiring journey but raring to explore Lisbon the next day. The size of the room was just nice for the 3 of us. The toilet is clean but I don't really like the frost & almost transparent toilet door. If u get close enough to the door, whatever activity u do in the toilet can be seen.

After reading the mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect but we were quite happy with the Hotel. Its easy to get to from the airport, 10euros by taxi, and close to the centre - a 10min walk to the Rossio. The hotel itself is clean but very basic and part of our shower was broken but we slept well and it was good value. I dont agree with some of the negative comments about the area. I found it to be quite a vibrant and multi cultural area - with people from Portugal's ex colonies. I was not at all intimidated by people and i think if you have lived in any urban area around people of other cultures you'll find it interesting - we even saw a cricket game between a group of south east asian men on a large square near the hotel. I must admit its not the most beautiful part of town but its definitely not too touristy or dangerous!
