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.
- 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
