Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu
Ranked #19 of 254 Lisbon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 March 2017

The Ribeira Tejo is a quaint guesthouse located about 10 minutes walk west of Praca do Comercio. It is facing the Time Out Market and conveniently close to main stops for subway, tram and buses. The staff were warm and helpful. We arrived at the guesthouse after an overnight flight, and were kindly offered our room right away. The room was simple but very clean and comfortable with nice architectural touches. The beds were very comfortable. There is a simple, fresh buffet breakfast offered every morning, with eggs made to order. They do offer fresh crepes as long as they don't run out of them (they ran out twice during our stay). The area is quite bohemian and artistic, run down in some streets nearby, but definitely a trendy location with lots of restaurants and bars nearby. Not the best place for young families when walking back from the city center at night. (Just a note on transportation: if you are a group of 4 people, take a taxi or Uber to Belem. We took the tram as recommended by the guesthouse, but waited a long while, stood, with two kids, on a jam-packed tram for a half an hour and it ended up costing more than the 6 euros it cost us to return in a comfortable Uber.) Overall, the Ribeira Tejo was comfortable and conveniently located, and was staffed by wonderful people.

Ribeira accommodations are wonderful and the staff couldn't be nicer. Great knowledge of the area and fantastic recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants. Daily breakfast is included, food quality and service were fantastic. Great location, can't wait to return.

The location is ideal: opposite the heavenly TimeOut Market, and on top of a public transport hub which means that trams, the metro, trains and ferryboats are all close by. Walking distance to the city center, and very close to one of the cable trams up to the Bairro Alto. The hotel itself is cosy, decorated in a BoHo chic style without skimping on comfort. Great beds, nice shower... and a wonderful view over the river. Breakfast was a daily source of joy: lovingly home-made pastries and cakes, delicious bread, eggs cooked or fried to order... simply perfect. And the friendly welcome and the information available completed a very, very good impression. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Rooms with river view cost a little bit extra but are totally worth it!

We travelled to Lisbon on Jan 11th until the 13th, chose this guest house as it was close to public transport and the fantastic Timeout market.the trams for Belem and the city are so close, less then a 2 min walk. Easy walk into the city as well.
We were warmly welcomed by our host Sergio, who ran through the normal procedures and then showed us the area on the map and gave us some fantastic tips on where to go, what to do,etc. he is very knowledgeable and helpful.
We were given room 403, it's was beautifully laid out, everything you needed and great views over the Timeout market looking across the river to the bank on the other side. Bed was very comfortable, minibar well stocked, coffeemaker,etc,etc, windows well insulated. Breakfast whilst small is simple is excellent and there is plenty to choose from and get your day started in a great way.
All is all it was a perfect stay and we would certainly recommend this property. We will certainly stay there again.

Like a lot of buildings in the old part of Lisbon the hotel is not much to look at from outside but inside is very comfortable. Very clean, good breakfast and great location to walk to just about everywhere in the centre.
What really makes this hotel is the staff - they are first rate.
A special mention for Paulo. We arrived very late, way after he should have left to go home, and it turned out we had reserved the wrong nights so we were not even expected for another 2 weeks!! But, with great kindness and professionalism Paulo managed to sort out all of our difficulties. Marvellous!
Oh, don't rely on Sat Nav in the old town. The hotel is right behind the TimeOut market which everybody knows.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu was once by the river… Actually only the Mercado da Ribeira and the Cais do Sodre station separate the fully renovated building of the Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu from the River Tagus. Most of the tiles from the 19th Century were renovated and can be seen from various points of the communal areas and also in some double and family suites. Take the lift to the 4th floor and simply use the stair to go up to the 5th floor, where you will find the best view at the Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu. There is nothing better than friendly and dedicated staff to welcome you and serve you a delicious home-made breakfast where you will have the opportunity of watching the ships go by, crossing under the 25th of April Bridge along with looking out to the Cristo Rei always on the lookout for any movement. Then, filled with energy you may begin your visit of Lisbon through the neighbourhoods of Chiado, Baixa and Bairro Alto which are less than a 10 minute walk-away from the Guesthouse, or if you prefer, you may also get on the No. 15 tram or the No. 28 tram to Alfama and Belem. Follow your instinct... we are waiting for you ! ... more   less
