My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by Hotel Dom Sancho I. In fairness, if you're the type of person that needs modern luxury at a hotel; this is not your hotel. HOWEVER, if you love a quaint authentic rustic feel plus the congeniality that one would expect staying at a nice bed-and-breakfast, this hotel is for you. Nestled in between the most luxurious stores in Libson (We're New Yorkers so IYKYK), this hotel is a diamond in the rough. We caught a late flight in and booked last minute for an extremely fair price. Alexandra was so sweet and she treated us like we were her family. Negatives: no amenities. Positives: it felt like the staff loves its guests and the price was great for the location. So if you prefer a warm experience near nice shopping, safe neighborhoods, and parks, this hotel is for you.

Nice hotel with big rooms. Very clean and friendly staff. The breakfast is modest but good. But the biggest plus is the location.
