This B&B was perfect for our group (5 friends). It was not too far out of town and easily accessible by trams (25 & 28),taxi or metro (Rato station). It's very close to the Estrela Basilica which is a useful landmark. The HOUSE is on the 4th floor but there is a lift. We all liked our rooms and they were just as described on the website.
The terrace gives you a stunning view of Lisbon and it's a good place to unwind in the evening with a glass of wine from their honesty bar. There are tea and coffee making facilities too.
We had excellent service from Pilar, before and during our stay. She went out of her way to be helpful. She arranged taxis, printed our boarding passes and helped with restaurant suggestions. Everything was done with a smile and willingness to please. She made our stay very easy.
Breakfast was simple but good and plentiful and the only suggestion I'd make is that they should ask if you want scrambled eggs and bacon as it arrived on the counter after we'd eaten our yogurts, ham, cheese and toast etc (we all thought it was just a cold buffet). (I can see why some people think there is no hot food)
Another change I'd like to see is that they have a hairdryer in each room. Being a group of women, we had to chase round to get one when we wanted it.
Overall, it's very good value for money, you get great service and it's in a quiet district. I'd highly recommend it!
