Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 November 2010

My fiance took me to Zuza B&B for our anniversary and wow what a place !!!
Luis was an amazing host ! so welcoming and gave us a mobile to use as a free hotline to him in case of emergency.
The room was amazing !!! Clean , stylish and with a view to die for ! It also had a wonderful terrace with the same great views over Lisbon !!!
The location was so central !
My only word of warning are the amount of steps , the B&B are set on a alot of steps and the B&B it self has 3 flights of stairs so may not be suitable for those with mobility problems .
All in all we will definatley coming back again n again n again !!!!!

My husband & I stayed in one of Luis's self-catering apartments when his B&B was unavailable in mid October. We stayed at Zuza'City Break Suites in the Principe Real District and really enjoyed it. Luis gave us great advice before we arrived about taxi drivers from the airport. Sure enough the taxi driver tried to over charged us but being forewarned by Luis we paid the appropriate amount. Luis welcomed us to our 1 bedroom with balcony suite, with a map, suggestions for dinner, wine bars, sights, and supplied the suite with a welcome bottle of wine plus goodies in the fridge for breakfast or snacking. Luis is a wonderful host and immendiately puts you at ease about being in Lisbon. He provides quests with a cellphone preprogrammed with his number, etc. so one avoids expensive roaming charges. We actually forgot the cell at the suite a couple of times but did use it at the suite to ask Luis about dinner recommendations. The location was very good. Rue da Imprensa can be a bit busy. The apartment was well equipped and smartly & efficiently furnished as pictures indicate. We were happy with the independence of the apartment, location and access to Luis if required. We had the pleasure of running into Luis at wine bar and then a restuarant. It was wonderful - like meeting a new but yet old friend in the lovely city of Lisbon. Thank you Luis for the advice, your hospitality and ou enjoyable stay.

We stayed in one of Luis's self-catering apartments, the Zuzaroyal, and not in his B&B. The Zuzaroyal apartment we stayed in was a huge, high-ceiling, late 18th-century combination of modern conveniences, funky decor, and faded splendor. The most important thing was the perfect location, just below the Barrio Alto (i.e. not in the middle of the noise and the drunks), but still in old Lisbon. The 28 tram was on the doorstep, and a Metro was a few minutes walk away. Luis was a great host, lending us a mobile so we could call him whenever we had any questions. He generously left us a welcoming bottle of wine, and quite a lot of food in the fridge, and we had a splendid time in Lisbon. We particularly appreciated the wi-fi connection! This is a great option for anyone who wants to be right in the middle of historic Lisbon and independent.

My wife and I came back from our first trip to Lisbon, and we are ready to go back tomorrow because of the phenomenal hospitality and kindness of the proprietor of Zuzabed and Breakfast. Luis is a gem! We stayed in the apartment on Rua de Flores, and thoroughly enjoyed spacious accommodation, privacy, and central location. Luis made our stay unforgettable, providing us with gentle and kind guidance delivered with sparkling humor and wit. Perfect place surrounded by stores and little restaurants. We are looking forward to sampling more of "fresh" wine and Portuguese sausage, Luis!

We stayed at ZUZABED from October 15th-18th. We arrived quite early in the morning (befor check-in time) and were immediately invited for breakfast (although not included for that day).
You would think that after a flight and getting up at 4 am, one would need some time for him/herself, and normally I would say the same thing. But our host Luis was so incredible welcoming, that we felt instantly at ease. Within 30 seconds we were chatting with the other guests. It was taking like a warm hot bath. I honestly have to say that this IS home away from home.

Breakfast was great, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated, but not extremely luxurious or posh. Also very nice shower, although I thougth at first sight it was a rather basic one.

I think that what we aprreciated most is the fact that we could reach Luis every second of the day (and night) by cell phone and ask everything, that we felt so welcome. I normally don't trust people that easily, but Luis stole my heart just by opening the door. He really seems to enjoy what he's doing and he does it with such style and taste! I cannot express enough how wonderful he is.
It's the little attentions that made this stay so special.He offered us Portugese specialties (cottage cheese, marmelade,..) and when he saw how much I liked it, the day after he served it again.

Being pregnant on this citytrip, might have been a burden (since you do have to take some chairs to visit the town..but it is totally possible and you don't realy need public transport !), but I got so spoiled that it was one of my top vacations.

And then the last morning, I was almost in tears (I was really deeply touched and moved), when Luis had a suprise for our future baby. It shows how he is and how ZUZABED is: just full of warmth and genuine care for the guests.

I am a very critical person as it comes to travelling and actually not really seeking for trips including socialising, but well once in a lifetime you do get blown away... And ZUZABEd and Luis did all that, right form the start.

This little B&B is easily reached by Bus from the airport - up a little windy street and stairs a few minutes from the main square. And the Louis our host was there to meet us and welcome us in. More like walking into someones home than a B&B - and very comfortable. A nice comunal area with free internet access, comfy sofas and chairs - loads of books to read and tea and coffee if you wanted it. Our room was up steep stairs and had access to a terrace which was lovely - and the views were spectacular over the city and across to the castle. Fresh flowers in the halls and room impressed me, along with the a welcoming drink biscuits, AND the free mobile to make local calls and talk to Louis if you get stuck - who else would have thought of that? Decor of our room was lovely - clean and bright. The only very slight disappointment was that some of the paint work was chipped and a little tired, but to make up for that the bed was incredibly comfortable and the bedlinen pure cotton - my favorite. Night life is on your doorstep with hundreds of restaurants/bars to choose from within 10 yards. Breakfast is to be believed - everything you could want including freshly baked cake by the host. Nobody lived on the premises - but the maid and host arrived for breakfast at 8.30 - and on one rainy day we didn't leave the table until 10.30am we were having such a lovely chat. The host - Louis - also has several self catering appartments - in the same vacinity - which we would like to try - and the breakfasts are just as good as the fridge is left stock up for you. Allround - excellent and we would be happy to use Louis's B&B or appartments again.

Located in the heart of old Lisbon, Zuzabed provides a perfectly located base for the exploration of the city. I knew, from my previous emails with its owner Luis, that we would received a warm welcome, but his gracious hospitality was overwhelming. It makes such a difference when one is traveling; he and Zuzabed have guaranteed that we will return to Lisbon
