I stayed in a 3rd floor room at the Teatro B&B in Lisbon for 3 nights in November 2014, and it was a great choice. It's very centrally located, just 2 minutes walk from the west exit of the Baixa-Chiado metro station (blue and green lines) and 7 mins walk from the Rossio metro station (green line). It's close to the main shopping streets, plenty of restaurants and the nightlife of the Bairro Alto district.
The hotel has a small, unassuming entrance, and is staffed 24/7 by very friendly and helpful receptionists. The substantial buffet breakfast is served 2 doors away, on the ground floor of the Beefeater 24 bar, up to the very civilised time of 11:30am.
My room was clean and comfortable, with a double bed, a chair next to a small table, a TV with about 60 channels, plenty of wardrobe space, a mini-bar, a safe and coffee-making facilities. The bathroom included a shower with complimentary soap and shampoo, and is separated from the main room by a glass door and partition .... so not much privacy if you're staying in the room with a friend or partner. Only thing I didn't like about my room was the positioning of the TV, which hangs from the ceiling at high level facing the bed. I would have preferred it to be viewable from the chair, but that's not a major issue. I didn't come to Lisbon to watch television!
Every detail was perfect. The pool was ovely with a gorgeous view. Breakfast outside was a wonderful way to start each day. Rodrigo attended to every concern, including providing restaurant referrals and limes for our gin and tonics.
The hotel staff could not be more helpful - nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel is in an excellent central location and if you have a car, the hotel staff will provide assistance and information for the Car Park. There are tours which leave regularly from the square and there are two 'Fado' restaurants within walking distance where you can be entertained with this typical Portuguese music over a good meal. The reception area does not do justice to the hotel. The decor is quirky and worth noting - every chair in the restaurant is a different design. I am not too sure that I liked too much the 'Do not Disturb' Sign on the bedroom door which said simply 'Get Lost' ! However just a minor point for a very pleasant stay; I would definitely come back.
This was one of the best hotel experiences I've had, and my husband has said the same. The hotel is charming, beautifully done and well appointed with incredibly spacious rooms. The staff is extremely nice and accommodating. The breakfast is very good with a enough variety to satisfy most tastes/diets. The tea/happy hour plus the complimentary port in the rooms is a very nice touch. My only complaint is the lack of workout room, but this is understandable given the limitations of the footprint of the hotel due to age/time of construction. Great hotel and will definitely stay there again when in Lisbon.
This is a place that we would definitely return to. The hosts are most welcoming and the guesthouse indeed has plenty of charm. The rooms are comfortable and the pool is a fantastic place to pass the time of day. The breakfasts are spot on and we could not fimd fault anywhere. Not that we even bothered looking! My wife is pregnant and on leaving, our hostess Suzanna gave us a little gift for the baby (a sweet babygrow)... when does that ever happen in this day and age. Wonderful....
