Charming old building with modern rooms, downtown in a lively part of central Lisbon, but a block from the noisiest area, so that by 10pm it was actually very quiet. Fantastic base to explore the city by foot or transit (metro and bus a few blocks away, as well as many elevators to upper hill areas — the famous fancy one too, but that is just a tourist site, not a practical choice). Rooms are snug but comfortable, and you can buy food and keep it in their shared lounge, which has a fridge and tables. Enormous number of great nearby restaurants, including breakfast options (the hotel doesn’t serve breakfast). One small nit: the shower in our room had a glass door that swing in, not out. Quite hard to squeeze in, and if someone needed help I don’t see how you could get to them without removing the door (which would not be hard to do, if it came to that). But they should fix the hinges to let the door swing out, which would be an easy thing for their handyman to do. Otherwise, while the room was cozy, we didn’t feel that it was unreasonably small given the location.
