“Simply outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

I stayed at Casa Amora recently and just wanted to share my feedback on an outstanding stay. In fact, I don't often submit reviews because I'd expect a certain level of service depending on how much I pay for accommodation. However, on this occasion it's totally warranted.

Casa Amora is a beautiful boutique guesthouse located in a great spot in central Lisbon, on the edge of a pretty little park. The main house is beautifully presented and the welcome we received, plus the hospitality throughout were exceptional. We were met on arrival by the lovely Juan, whose smile and attentiveness made us feel very welcome.

The kitchen, lounge and dining area (set in a beautiful courtyard) manage to be both rustic and authentic in feel but with all the flare you'd expect from high-end accommodation (Smeg fridge, Nespresso machine etc).

I stayed with two friends (a couple) in one of the apartments on the other side of the beautiful courtyard. The apartment was a generous size and decorated to an exceptionally high standard. My roommates shared a lovely room with a big bed and en suite on the mezzanine one level above the lounge. I stayed on the generously sized sofa bed which could easily pass for a standard double bed due to it's size and comfort. I slept flawlessly both nights. There was a smaller though perfectly adequate bathroom on the ground floor which I had sole use of and even a small kitchen, including a fridge stocked with chilled drinking water waiting for us on arrival.

The entire place was spotlessly clean on arrival and cleaned daily thereafter.

Finally, breakfast was simply superb. Freshly baked croissants and Portuguese cakes and pastries, tasty fresh coffee, local meats and cheeses, fresh fruit and juice and optional egg dishes and even special Portuguese treats (try the rice pudding with cinnamon - devine!)

I will upload some pictures, but you have to be there to experience it.

I have already been raving about Casa Amora to all my friends and will DEFINITELY stay here again on my next trip to Lisbon.

Many thanks to Juan and Luis - a lesson in textbook hospitality.

Roman.

In April were a couple of days in Lisbon, stayed in the apartment for the first time, chosen by the photos and reviews "Casa Amora", as not regret it. Friendly host, clean room after repair, interior design almost everything would be great. Host Juan detail shaped us all tourist route.
But we did not listen to him and decided to ride on a tour bus (Yellow Bus) in different lines in the city. And our sightseeing plans almost failed. As a result, line 2 of 4 promised did not work, stop not equipped with canopies, stood in the sun for an hour, had hoped, but in vain. In general, transport in Lisbon were dissatisfied. Shuttle driver at the airport of Lisbon did not want to find a change from 50 euros, although a lot of people put in front of us and cash he had accurately. And, in conclusion, this failure with lines Yellow Bus. Tip - do not rely on handouts tour buses, 50 percent of iniquity.

A big thank you to Nita, delicious food and always smiling and what wonderful hosts Luis and
Juan were.
We were fortunate enough to have stayed at their lovely B and B when it was their two year anniversary, the hosts treated all the guests to a surprise party and what a treat.
We were all taken on a amphibious vehicle and had a wonderful time.
I can't sing your praises enough and thank you for making our trip to Lisbon a memorable one.
If we come back to Lisbon again it will definitely be to your House of Love.
Regards Linda & Roger Cooper.

Superb breakfast prepared by Nita; it never fails to impress you. They have got freshly baked quiche and croissants everyday. Good location as the Metro station is nearby. You can also find a supermarket. The host had done an excellent job in ensuring we have a homely stay. The room is nicely decorated. Highly recommended. Nice restaurants in the neighborhood.

How lovely it was to awake in- and come back to the welcoming home that is Casa Amora. I'd like to especially thank Juan for the warm welcome & constant enthusiasm. I really benefited from his private walking tour and recommend it to orient you to a charming city. I spent several days at Casa Amora and experienced -due to my poor late planning- various rooms in the guesthouse. All four (!) I saw were arranged sumptuously. For me, a light sleeper, my favorite was the poetically brooding and spacious Viera da Silva studio. My next favorite the cozy and romantic Florbela double room. The breakfast was always delicious and was prepared by the often here complimented sunny soul that is Nita. A big hug to her. Thank you too to Vladmir for the luggage luggings and warm greetings! I recommend the bar next door, the water museum, and the Viera da Silva museum in the neighborhood. Much of the rest of the city is very easy to access on foot, bus or metro. (The taxi from & to the airport was less than 11 euros and late night taxis from touristic hubs even less!) It was for me a perfect base to explore and relax on a much needed vacation.

A very big thank you to Luis and Jaun for being so warm hearted, thoughtful and helpful, you made our stay very pleasant and we also loved the art work in the rooms.

Room Tip: Very charming, studio duplex was very nice

Luis, Nita, and Juan are all simply the best hosts that a traveler could ask for. They help with maps, any reservations, food & snacks...anything it takes to make their guests comfortable! They are the gold standard for B&B's everywhere! I would come back to stay again.
Thank you Casa Amora. We enjoyed our time with you.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet due to the nice quiet neighborhood location.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Casa Amora is a typical building of Lisbon’s early twentieth century petite bourgeoisie, renovated in 2012, with a small outdoor patio for rest or meals and 5 bedrooms (all with bathroom). Each room pays homage to one of the great figures of Portuguese art (painting, music, literature, film) of the last century. The process of renewal and adaptation carefully kept all the decorative elements existing in the rooms (plaster) and exterior (tiles, balcony), introducing a color palette that contributes to a peaceful and relaxing environment. Casa Amora is located in one of the nicest and most central districts of Lisbon, Praça das Amoreiras. In this neighborhood, where the 18th century Aqueduct (that survived the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755) reaches and end, Casa Amora is neighbor to Water Museum (Museu da Mae de Agua) and the Vieira da Silva / Arpad Szenes museum. Residents and visitors have easy and direct access to the neighborhoods of antique shops (Rua de Sao Bento and Rua da Escola Politecnica), historic districts (Bairro Alto and Chiado), Avenida da Liberdade and its fashion shops as well as the shopping center Amoreiras, all at walking distance. ... more   less
