Great location, merely steps to famous elevator. Quiet, quaint, and charming. At $300 a night, very small rooms. One teeny tiny elevator which works going up from first floor but is unavailable from 5th floor! You’d be hard pressed to fit two normal humans and luggage in the elevator without lubricant and force. My room, #53, deluxe, balcony but weirdly shaped and designed. Very small, Once again, I think two people with luggage would definitely be challenged to stay more than a night. My safe didn’t work, my pillows were rocks. I asked about another softer pillow and was met with ? No amenities, gym, or place to sit. I think on my return to lovely Lisbon there are other options at this price point. The city is going through a true revival but that also encourages pricing not up to par with offerings.

Great location helped a lot as a solo traveler since I was just a short walk away from everything. Staff was so kind and attentive. The front desk girl with the glasses even helped wrap my broken nail with a bandaid! Awesome experience here. Deducted a point because my room had a distinct smell & my AC barely worked.
