We chose to stay here for 3 nights at the end of March after reading good reviews and we were not disappointed! The hotel is in an excellent position; I know some people commented it was hard to find, but we didn't feel this was true. Yes it is down a side street, but it is clearly marked that the hotel is down there and the directions provided by the hotel were very clear. Where to begin? The staff were helpful and attentive without being obtrusive; the breakfast buffet was plentiful and varied; the room was very comfortable and clean, with a spacious bathroom and great views. The terrace bar was a great place to sit and chill after a hectic day of sightseeing. We had a late flight home and the hotel staff organised bag storage and a taxi to the airport. We would definitely recommend to others - a fantastic place to stay.

Beautiful location, excellent staff & good breakfast. Peacocks in the local trees added additional character to a charming location. The port in the room was a nice welcome. If we ever go back to Lisbon we will certainly stay here.
Stayed for 10 days in Sept/Oct in a queen room. Apart from a couple of minor niggles, couldn't fault the hotel. The staff were welcoming, friendly whilst remaining professional, and very helpful. Hotel was spotlessly clean. Very good selection at breakfast - bacon, scrambled egg, sausage, fresh fruit, cereal cheese, meats etc etc. - have had much much worse at 5* hotels. Had read previous reviews about the hilly location and, as my partner has a degenerative back condition, we were slightly concerned, but this was easily overcome by using taxis, which were reasonably priced - a taxi to/from the hotel to the centre was only a few cents more than paying for two of us to use the bus/tram. We did have two minor issues - the hotel collects and then redelivers the kettle with fresh cups, tea, coffe supplies every day. Unfortunately the delivery time was always when we were having a snooze and we were interupted despite having the 'Do not disturb' sign on the door. This was remedied by speaking with reception & the tray was then left outside when we had the sign on the door. I now understand the reason for the low chairs on the room terrace (see previous reviews). They are low so you can't see over the not very high dividing wall between individual room terraces. They weren't suitable for my partner due to his back condition and we had to carry out the stool from the room for him to sit on. Privacy could be easily improved by installing wrought iron screens on the low wall.
It is so nice to get mail before arriving to hotel that explaining how can we go and find location and other details. When we arrive hotel there was smiling face saying very warm welcome who was Maria. She expained hotel history , city and give advice for dinner etc . All was so nice. Room was so good and we really like to stay this hotel.

"River-view rooms in the heart of historic Lisbon"
We were very happy with our stay in Sweet Lisbon. The rooms were very comfortable and had a great view of the river. The common kitchen was available for simple meal preparation. Breakfast is included. The bathrooms are shared, but both the men's and women's bathrooms have two shower stalls and two toilette stalls; so there were no line-ups.
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.
