Perfect location on the edge of Baixa and Chiado. Easily walkable to Bairro Alto. The historic building has not been updated much, so it has that charm. Paula is very willing to chat with guests, and the place is tiny enough that she will address you by name each time she sees you. Only problem was we ran out of... More

Pensao Royal might not be everyone's cup of tea but if you are tired of the sameness and often un-intentional soul-less hotel accommodation, this is right up your alley. However, beware there is no lift in the building. Paula, the owner, is someone who knows her city, a mine of information! The intention of the trip to Lisbon was to... More

Great location, within walking distance to key downtown Lisbon locations. Paula is excellent--friendly, spirited, full of good humor--and makes you feel right at home in Portugal, giving great advice on exploring Lisbon. Great breakfast (homemade by Paula) in a comfy room of the Pensao is a fine way to start off each day.

The cutest, lovely, comfy little house in Lisbon although it was tiring walking up the stairs with our luggages (on the 3rd floor)! The metro train station is just less than 3 minutes away. It just feels like home, we stayed for 3 nights 24apr-27apr 2012. Friendly and thoughtful owner, Paula made breakfast for us and told us where to... More

Great location, amazing hostess and insane amount of cakes at breakfast. Alot of steps (60 something) but well worth it. The only grumble was the people shouting outside but when your in the center of Lisbon I think you can get over it. Oh and Paula, do you sleep? An amazing woman who needs to train up some people to... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
