The House
Ranked #40 of 262 Lisbon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 January 2013

The House was recommended by a friend and from the moment we walked in we knew it was a good one. The House has a lovely feel to it (the exterior of the building is deceiving) and is beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Library which us one of the smallest rooms but it was fine for two people. The thing that makes The House is the staff - Pilar and Pedro were great for recommending and booking restaurants, advice on travel, sightseeing recommendations etc but they took a genuine interest in your wellbeing and your activities. The most common phrase we heard was "can we do anything for you?". The rooftop terrace is a great place to chill out and the hinesty bar is a great idea. Breakfast is generous and had enough variety for our 4 day stay. Nowhere in Lisbon seems to be very far away and this was true of The House. I would absolutely recommend The House if you are heading to Lisbon.

For starters do take Francisco's advice about taking a taxi from the arrivals area at the airport. If the cab driver is unsure about the address tell him it is near the Basilica Estrella that will get you to the right area.

We stayed in the Girl's Room which was cozy, warm and very clean.
The breakfast area is relaxing and there was a nice selection of continental items and bacon & eggs were available, just ask since the breakfast staff seem a little shy. The adjacent lounge/tv area was a nice spot to chill and review the many guidebooks on Lisbon.

The wow factor here is the glassed in rooftop terrace with it's great view of Lisbon! We were staying during New Year's Eve and it was an amazing spot to watch the fireworks. Francisco treated all the guests to champagne and snacks, a great way to bring in 2013!
The terrace also has an honour bar for wine, beer, port, coffee and tea a nice treat at the end of a busy day.

The other major plus is Francisco, Pilar & Pedro's guidance and knowledge of Lisbon and it's environs. They provided invaluable advice and took the guesswork out of exploring the city, Belem, Sintra and Cascais.
Taking their advice we took Tram 28, which stops very nearby, up to the top and then casually walked down taking in the scenic view points and stopping for a lunch and a glass of vinho tinto. Lisbon is hilly so take the trams and funiculars, your calves, quads, gluts and knees will thank you!

The location of The House is another plus. It's easy to get to any part of the city by cab (inexpensive too), public transport, even walking (make sure it's downhill!).
The Basilica Estrella at the end of the street is worth a visit as is the lovely park across the street from the church. There's even a small shop up at the top of the street where you can buy fruit, water and of course a bottle of great Portuguese wine.

We always look for a spot that will get us feeling comfortable and quickly "localized" on our journeys. The House with it's great staff made us feel like Lisboans in no time.

Thanks Francisco, Pilar, Pedro and staff for making our Lisbon adventure so memorable!

Cheers,

Mark & Heather (the Canadian Winemakers)

According to Trip Advisor reviews we choose The House.
Francisco welcomed us on Xmas Day and quickly showed us all the house/tarrace. We were accomodated in Library room which is pretty small but cosy. Comfortable bed, well working air condition/ heating, good shower pressure. Housekeeping services daily. Breakfast was fine/ continental. Big thanks to Pilar,Francisco and Pedro to all their help. We were given trip tips every morning before we left The House. Maps/leaflets etc were provided by staff. There was no problem for them to book us taxi or table in restaurant.
Great location, walking distance (3 min) to Estrella and famous 28 tram.
If you not sure which room be suitable for you please contact The House directly, the room info on their website is confusing.
Many thanks The House to made our stay fantastic.

Our first trip to Lisbon was made all the more special by the amazing hosts at The House who went above and beyond when it came to hospitality. The place is outstanding with a fantastic view from the rooftop terrace and picturesque tram ride into the centre. We look forward to one day making it back to The House. Colin + Vince (Australia)

It was such a delight to enter The House! The receptionist was very friendly and welcoming and showed us the beautiful bedroom and bathroom (we stayed in the Boys Bedroom). Then, she showed us the breathtaking terrace! We grabbed drinks from the honor bar and spend a good hour just gazing out at the panoramic view of Lisbon.

Reluctantly, we dragged ourselves out of the hotel only to discover another great surprise. The location! It's a perfect place for exploring the area. Great neighborhood right at the foot of Basilica Estrella and the tourist Tram 28. I'd recommend hopping on the Tram and getting on and off at each stop to explore the different areas of Lisbon. It's a great, fun way to see the city!

We were leaving very early the next morning so we came in that night to find the staff had left fresh bread and jams in our room for breakfast.

Next time, we'll stay longer!
