“The most convenient hotel in Lisbon.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

Very convenient for all the best restaurants in Lisbon. Ask for a front room and be part of the night people of the square. It's not like putting up with the bingers of the UK or hysterical holiday makers in the costas just enthusiastic chatter of people having fun. If you want it to be quiet get a room at the back. Lots of great eateries within a very short stroll through the back streets

We got a special offer to stay in Hotel Borges Chiado. Room with breakfast - great value for money.
The breakfast is in an impressive hall and absolutely comprehensive. The rooms are not recent, but classy and clean. The stuff is polite but not the friendliest.
The Hotels location is perfect to discover everything downtown by foot. The metro is quasi in front of the Hotel, so it has excellent connection to the transport system. Good restaurants are close by.
Just the perfect location!

While this hotel has a great location that's the only thing to recommend about it. The rooms are tiny and not very comfortable and smelled a bit. The corridors were very noisy and the breakfast room was overcrowded on weekend mornings, tables were not cleaned and we had to wait for a table. I'm sure there are better hotels in Lisbon so I'd recommend you stay elsewhere.

A very nice hotel in the heart of Lisbon, near to metro station, and many beautiful churches. The hotel personal is also very king and helpful. Breakfast : cheese, ham, yogurt, musli, jam and croissants, breakfast is been served in an old beautiful hall that gives you a feeling of staying in palace

Some of the staff were very helpful and courteous, there were couple of them that needed a course in "HOSPITALITY 101". I was there for 11 nights, so I decided to ignore the rudeness of some and hoped that when I needed some info or advice, one of the most helpful would be at the front desk. I agree with all that's been said about the location, its great. Ride the Tram #28 right in front of the building, great tourist ride for 1.25 on the Via Viagem card. A very interesting and touristic kind of ride. Breakfast was good and lots of it. Remember this is included with the room rate, so its not a hot breakfast. Cheese, ham, bread, buns, pastries, coffee ( any way you like it) yoghurt, fresh fruit, juices, jams, cereals all served in a beautiful, ornate room, chandeliers and gilt and beautiful mouldings. My tv was a 10" model, definitly not flat screen, but
I didn't go to Lisbon to watch TV. I faced the Square and was very intrigued by all the comings and goings. Lots of good entertainment and some not so good, I was travelling solo and arrived late at night, so thought I had better use a taxi, as I did not know the city. Cost me 16 Euros and a tip. He seemed upset that he should have to drive a taxi late at night in the rain. Grumbled about everything. Obviously didn't like Tourists. On my way back to the airport 11 days later, I used my Via Viagem card and spent 1.25 euro and 40 minutes, one transfer, very easy to follow the coloured lines in this metro, The Vasco de Gama Shopping Centre at "Oriente metro stop" is very good and so is the Corte Ingles at San Sebastiao, I rode on all of the local big yellow buses for 1.25 a ride and saw everything. Stopped when I wanted to and wandered around everywhere. Took the train from Cais de Sodre Station to CaisCais - a very beautiful little picturesque fishing village, well worth wandering around and having lunchm then go to Sintra and to the Casino at Estoril. A lovely day. The heating in my room worked fro a few days and then gave up, but they send up a technician to fix it. Wonderful little area in the middle of everything - good restaurants and food fairs - all the food I ate in Lisbon was excellent. Try all the soups

The hotel room and the hotel itself was clean and I had more than I needed of clean sheets and towels. I can't complain for the price - it was terrific.

Room Tip: My room was 419 - and I was fine there, I liked watching and listening to what was happening in the...

The best thing about this hotel is definitely its location! Its situated superbly with restaurants and nightlife in the Baixa and Chiado areas nearby and walking distance to many of the tourist sites in the centre as well as to some of the good transport spots to go the airport, Belem etc.
The rooms are basic - what you need and not much more which can just as well be said for the bathroom which in addition is also incredibly small. Breakfast was nothing special but I think that's to be expected at budget hotels in Lisbon (at least that's what my guidebook said). All in all we were happy with the hotel.

A taxi took me to this Hotel on request for a reasonably priced room. It was around £50.00 for the room thats not bad though in Portugal its not necessarily cheap either for a modest hotel.
You had to pay extra for Wifi, a five pound charge. This made me feel miserable when a busy hotel needs to do this to their customers. However, that might be the key, a busy Hotel in the centre of town doesn't need to appreciate individual custom perhaps. The Monday night staff, one in particular was more indifferent almost impatient when I asked for directions to the closest cash machine from the Hotel. After a tough day driving to a town I'm not familiar with this response was was depressing. The rooms were okay, strange shape, high ceiling, small bathroom. Id spent some nights in some friendly Hotels where the staff are really becoming, it really does make a difference when your travelling alone.

Room Tip: Move the beds around if you dare, the rooms are an awkward shape where you cant walk clearly around...
