This hotel is fabulous and close to the action in the old town. You can ride the No28 tram, walk to St Georges Castle and don't miss the roman ruins under the Millennium Bank 96 Augustus St free guided tour on the hour.
The hotel provides a free walking tour - take it!

Perfect little oasis hidden up the cobbled streets at the top of the hill, the hotel is part of a former palace backing onto the castle walls. The hotel's finish is to a very high standard and a beautiful mix of old & modern. The location is great for exploring the Alfama district (for Castle, Se & Miradouro Santa Luzia) but also close enough to Baixa / Chiado / riverfront Centro commercial & Barrio Alto. If you have mobility problems though, I'd recommend hotels in the flatter area of Avenida rather than this one, due to the cobbled streets and fairly steep walk up the hill. Lisbon is built over a number of hills though so you can't avoid them completely but there is lots of public transport to choose from including trams, the metro, tuk tuks & buses! The staff at the hotel were welcoming & helpful, ringing up restaurants to make bookings for us and advising on places to visit. They speak multiple languages and really made our stay all the more pleasant. Breakfast offered a good selection of food and was well presented - lovely to be able to have breakfast anytime between 8am and noon. The honesty bar was well stocked and the hotel has a lovely courtyard to enjoy your drinks. The rooms are clean, wonderfully presented with lovely bathroom, decent space for clothes, a safe and free wi-fi, a nice final touch is a decanter of port in the room with two glasses. All in all, I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a small and friendly hotel in a great location.
We stayed in great comfort in the quiet modern attractive apartment, which showed a modern side of the old city of Lisbon. Although no person was present on site, a phone query was answered quickly and effectively and tHe apartment was serviced daily. There was a useful large wall map which provided a lot of information about nearby restaurants, museums, churches etc. wifi was available. All the arrangements for checking in via access code emailed to me worked perfectly, a very efficient system.
Last night of our week in portugal and sweet lisbon guesthouse ended our holiday in style. Don't be fooled by the dark office building like entrance, this guesthouse is a haven in the centre of old town lisbon.
Nice comfortable rooms...huge bathrooms with best hostel shower I have ever experienced...nice breakfast in the morning...rooms get cleaned daily which is a bonus....close to the metro line and tram 28 which runs into the city center....good value for the price....
Ah, memories! I felt like a traveling college student again in this “sweet Attic Apartment.” Right down to the reprimand we received for evidently being too loud, the attic accommodations that were dorm-like, and the cold showers. We didn’t have high expectations for $30/night, and I guess you get what you pay for.
