“At the heart of Lisboa”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This hotel is situated at the heart of Lisboa, which is a perfect location to the castle, the sea , metro station and city center. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. The price was reasonable and the room was clean...

Reviewed 17 April 2014

We've stayed here three times over three years and would do so again. Once for three days,twice as a one night stopover.

What you're getting is: 1.Great location. Right in city centre. Sights, shops, trams, buses, metro, restaurants, cafes... Within five minutes of main airport bus drop off. 2. Relatively quiet (unless you've very talkative neighbours) even though trams pass door. 3. Very clean 4. Cheap, particularly for location. 5. Generally helpful

Downsides 1. The lift (referred to in almost every report). I'm fairly fit but the stairs are a huff and puff 2. One or two have expressed concern over security in the area. It's a backstreet, yes, but scruffy rather than in any way threatening. Always people around and it's just 100 metres from main square. But I'm not a woman travelling
alone 3. Rooms vary. On a recent visit 301 had a bath the size of a large sink. a hold- it- over- your head shower with collapsing screen and a view over the backside of buildings. On our return trip room 307 had a spacious bathroom and a view up to the castle 4. I'm still spitting out the coffee we had at our last breakfast there. Maybe it's improved since then but there's plenty of top notch places to enjoy a proper Lisbon breakfast within five minutes.5. Was that drainage I could smell as I went upstairs?

the hotel is cute but it's definitely not a 4 star...it's located in the centre of the city so it's close to the shops, buses, etc.
me and my friend saw a beetle in the bathroom and on the ceiling....
as other users wrote, the problem is that the elevator is on the 1st floor so you gotta climb 2 stairs before reaching it....
anyway the maid managed to keep the room clean.

I booked Grande Pensao Residencial Alcobia 3 months early than I went to Lisbon. I got a very good price. Even the room was not big but very clean. Also, I had my own balcony. The buffet breakfast were all with good taste.

Downside :
1. Lobby was at 2F without elevator. I should carry on my heavy luggage went upstairs by myself.
2. Elevator was very small. If you bring big luggages, you should go and back more than one time.

I am on the fence about this hotel. I think had we not stayed on the 2nd floor (1st floor of rooms) I may have liked it better. And if the heater had worked better in our room I may have been more excited about this place. It just happened to be our heater that was weak, and they were at full occupancy while we were there so we did not change rooms.
The location is extremely convenient. A very short walk to the Rossio metro. Several bus and trolley stops all within a very short walk. Lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance.
I found the staff to be nice and helpful.
There is not an elevator for the 1st 2 floors. If you travel with a lot and/or heavy luggage you will need to carry up 2 flights of steps.
Breakfast was included, basic but quite a few choices of breads, cereals, cheeses, meats, yogurt, coffee and tea.
The rooms are very minimal. Good size room and bathrooms. The beds are old and worn, same with the bath towels and the pillows.
Some of the rooms do have some pretty views depending on what floor you are on.
We stayed on the 2nd floor (1st floor of rooms), and it was very loud.
At different times of the day the sewer smell in our room was quite strong.
The breakfast room is on the same floor and in the mornings the dishes clanking and the guests walking/talking up and down the hall is very loud.

The rooms are the hotel itself were very clean. There is a little bar/coffee area near the desk checkin. The wifi worked in our room but did not work in different parts of the hotel. There is a computer with internet for use near the check in desk.

With all that said, the hotel is in such a convenient spot, and the staff friendly.
The location may outweigh all the other nit picky points.

Location is great, room is basic, everything you need is there and it's very clean. Breakfast is ok, more extended than we expected in a Mediteranian country and there's also more than enough. Two subway stations very close by, major sights are within walkingdistance. And yes, you have to climb three stairs with your suitecase and the elevator is small, but it gives charme to this hotel.

This pension has spacious and comfortable rooms, but do be aware that there are stairs to carry luggage up. The lift is on the first floor and is very small. It was accommodation as part of a tour that I was travelling on so I am not sure about value for money. However, it was close to the major sights in Lisboa and to the Metro.
