After schlepping our (by now on this trip, rather heavy) baggage up the stairs, we were greeted w/ less than warmth by the proprietor. Once our PayPal reservation snafu was straightened out, we were enthusiatically attended to over the week of our stay. The room decor is a bit too frou-frou for our taste, but it is cozy in that...

Had an excellent time at pensao royal. Paola the proprietress really takes care of you and makes the most amazing breakfasts - she even made us pasteis before we left and they were delicious. The only issue I had was having to climb 4 flights of stairs but other than that it was amazing. We were really well taken care...

We had a memorable honeymoon in Portugal,especially in Pensao Royal. It's a great place to stay in Lisbon and our room was nice and clean. Paula is helpful and a very sweet hostess. She made great Pasteis de Nata for our breakfast as we had to leave the hostel very early to catch our flight. Big thanks to Paula.

To be honest this place seemed very sketchy at first. basically no visible sign so it was difficult to find. Had to carry my heavy luggage up 3 huge flights of stairs. The owner, paula, is a little intimidating at first. The room seemed a little Skeevy decorated kind of like a love nest. But dont judge a book by...

I'll say only two words PENSAO ROYAL! Everything that you can read about Pensao is true. Great location, clean rooms, amazing breakfast and the most important - Paula is very helpful, great host, breakfast maker and ''what to see'' adviser :-) I surely recommend. OK I said more than two words :-)

We loved our stay at Pensao Royal and, honestly, it was better than a 5 star hotel! Paola is amazing, her breakfast is steadily becoming stuff of legends, our private room with a separate shower and bathroom was cleaned daily (!!!)... The staff also helped a lot with directions, car rental services and anything else we needed. The service we...

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"!
