“The people make the place: lovely place in Lisbon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We stayed at Casa Amora for 4 nights in the studio - these were new rooms, so the decor, cleanliness and amenities were perfect. It was a good feeling to come back to the room after a hectic day of walking around the city of 7 hills. I personally loved the decor of Casa Amora, with the books, Bordallo Pinheiro ceramics, lovely azulejo tiles, Vista Alegre pieces.
Breakfast was thoughtfully prepared & served in the very lovely garden area..
The location is great: close to the Avenida Liberdade and the Marques de Pombal circle. The Rato metro and bus station are walking distance from the guest house. There's also a Pingo Doce for any last minute necessities.
But more than anything else, the lovely folks of Casa Amora, esp. Juan and Luis were lovely hosts. Juan helped us with the car rentals, mapping the key sightseeing areas in Lisbon, booking a Fado night and fried eggs, shopping tips (Bordallo Pinheiro) among many other things. When he asks us to call him anytime for help, he means it. We met Luis on the last day of our stay and he was equally helpful - booking our cab, more shopping recommendations!
We loved our stay at Casa Amora and we'd recommend this to anybody traveling to Lisbon!

We had a great stay for 4 nights at Casa Amora. It's nicely renovated and the breakfasts are great. Juan, the manager, is so friendly and helpful--just couldn't be nicer with any information you need and great recommendations for Fado, things to do, etc. He really went the extra mile when I was having trouble booking a train reservation to Porto on line. He ended up doing the booking for me and having the tickets emailed to his account so that he could print them out. Now that's service! Nita, the cook and housekeeper, couldn't be more pleasant. We had a great time at Casa Amora and would definitely recommend it.

We stayed in the beautifully appointed Superior Duplex room at Casa Amora, with private terrace, but it is our experience with the staff that I want to convey here.

Juan could be a concierge at a 5 star hotel – he really cares for his guests from the moment you arrive until you leave. Actually even AFTER you leave. He arranged for my camera, which I left in a cab, to be delivered to the airport where we were picking up our rental car – AMAZING!
Nita bakes something special everyday. So even though we enjoyed 4 breakfasts, there was always something new – a cake or rice pudding or heavenly Pastel de Nata, Portugese custard tarts - to enjoy in the morning along with the other generous breakfast offerings.
Vlad took care of our luggage and showed me how the espresso maker worked. There was even a birthday gift from the staff waiting in our room on the actual day, which made my birthday even more special.
Casa Amora is centrally located in a quiet Lisbon neighbourhood with a variety of restaurants a short walk away. The Rato metro station is just down the street.

Room Tip: Superior Suite has its own terrace overlooking the patio.

Four of us spent five nights at Casa Amora in mid-May and had a brilliant time. From the moment of booking, we received impeccable service. I had called ahead to request a ground-floor-level room and was assured this would be arranged for us. We were also able to book an airport pick-up through the hotel which was timely and comfortable and reasonably priced.
We were greeted warmly by Juan, the manager, who also looked after us for the duration of the stay and even took us on a private sightseeing tour of Lisbon.
The location is great, walking-distance from the city center yet far enough removed to be quiet and peaceful.
Breakfast was easily the best thing about our stay, freshly prepared and served on the terrace. It consisted of a breakfast buffet ranging from pastries and cereals to fresh bread and freshly squeezed fruit juices, while eggs were made to order.
The rooms were lovingly and individually decorated, clean and up-to-date. Even small requests, such as for a softer pillow were met immediately and without any fuss.
With such service and quality accommodation, we'd recommend Casa Amora to anyone and will definitely return if life takes us back to Lisbon one day.

There's so much to say! Of all the great places we stayed throughout our two week honeymoon in Portugal, Casa Amora was truly special. The location is quiet and away from all the hubbub without being too far away-- the train is right there and you can still walk to busier areas if you so desire. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated (I believe we stayed in the Amalia Rodrigues room-- not big, but very comfortable). What made our stay most memorable, however, was the hospitality we received from the manager, Juan. From the moment we arrived, Juan went above and beyond to assist and delight. From little things like the bottle of champagne waiting in our room when we arrived and catering to our dietary restrictions at breakfast in the morning, to even showing us around town during St. Anthony's Day, Juan was accommodating of every anticipated need. This was truly a 5-star experience!

We spent 5 days in Lisboa to discover the beautiful City. Casa Amora was a very sympathic b&b, located near Metro station Rato. Our bedroom was very clean and the A.C. during these warm days was comfortable. We enjoied the rich breakfast in the lovely Patio (specially the fresh pressed orangejuice, the selection of portugese cheeses, breads and fresh homemade tortilla). Juan was very helpful planing our days, making reservations and calling taxis. Back from our excursions we appreciated the self-service of cold and warm beverages, fresh fruits and cookies. We enjoied our stay and will come back.

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
