Booked at the 11th hour through lastminute as part of a package and did not expect super luxury. As a crash pad for sightseeing, this place is great. You can walk from airport bus 1, stop marques pombal, although it is a bit of a higgledy piggledy walk through cobled lanes. This hotel is in a pretty but untouristy older part of the city, quiet, unpretentious, and fairly conveniently located. It is a 20 minute downhill walk to the river, but the 19 bus stops right outside and does the trip in five minutes. The 73, which terminates right outside the hotel, takes you to the western terminus of that scenic tram line, no.28.

The welcome at the hotel is very friendly. Okay, rooms are small but perfectly adequate to sleep and rest in. We had two comfortable twin beds, windows that shut properly, heating that worked, clean cotton sheets, a nice clean bathroom - all we needed. Even the breakfast was pretty good for a two star.

It is just one of these cheap hotels from before every place not belonging to a chain pretended to be "boutique". This place does exactly what it says, and i would stay there again any time.

This small hotel is only a short bus ride from everything you want to see and do in Lisbon. It is also on the way from the airport to the city center and the xaxi ride was only ablout ten minutes. The rooms are small but functional, the service is friendly. We had to leave early for the airport and the night porter opened up the breakfast room one hour early just for us. Since we only stayed one night there is not so much more to be said.

The room is small, ac does not work, old stained carpet and beaten up chair in the room. and the list goes on and on. I tried to talk to the concierge/front desk about the condition of the room but i was displeased by her response. "We know all of this but the manager does not care why I will care. You tourist will not come back again so why bother?" Service is very poor. Location is very good near to almost everything small compensation.

Cramped en stuffy public rooms en hotelrooms. No bar or restaurant. Hotelroom dirty with lots of broken and deteriorated things. Floor hadn't probably seen vacuumcleaner foor ages. Fungus in bathroom. Hot, stuffy. noisy. We asked and got after one night other room, which was the same in shape but a little bit better maintained. Breakfastroom too small but service adequate.

This hotel needs a revamp. It is very run down and dowdy. Having said that the rooms were adequate for what we paid and breakfast was excellent and always fresh. Location was good. You could walk to town in 10- 15 mins as all downhill but had to cab back. Good and regular bus service right outside though.our original rooms were a joke but they were swiftly changed to bigger balcony rooms with a view on complaint. Staff pleasant but communication a bit of a problem with some of them.

We stayed in the Residencial Princesa for 2 nights, in mid February. The accomodation was basic, but we knew this before we went. The room was clean and we were provided with a safe, free of charge. The staff were very helpful in pointing us in the right directions of which bus to get to the areas we wanted to go to and there is also a taxi rank just a few minutes walk away. On the note of taxis I would avoid getting a taxi from the arrivals end of the airport as they charged double what it cost to take us back to the airport when we left.

Overall it is exactly what we paid for. We wanted a good, clean hotel where we could get to the heart of Lisbon with ease and the staff were very helpful in making us welcome.
