The capital of Portugal, Lisbon is perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and one of the rare Western European cities that face the ocean and uses water as an element that defines the city. Lisbon enchants travelers with its white bleached limestone buildings, intimate alleyways, and an easy going charm that makes it a popular year round destination.
The sparkling new Lisboan Ask Me Centre will help you find accommodation and the staff is happy to dispense advice, maps and brochures. Smaller Ask Me Lisboan kiosks are dotted about the Rossio district and airport and their multilingual staff also have maps and brochures. Lisbon enjoys a Subtropical-Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and very warm summers. Strongly influenced by the Gulf Stream it is one of the mildest climates in Europe. Lisbon is very close to the ocean and that brings windy and fast-changing weather, so you'd better bring a jacket or an umbrella with you, at least in winter, spring and autumn.
Go out at night to the central Bairro Alto, or 'High Neighborhood'. Just up the hill from Chiado, this is the place to go out in town. In the early evening, go to a fado-themed restaurant near the Praca Camoes, and head upwards as the evening goes on. If you're in Lisbon on the night preceding a Feriado or public holiday, you have to check this out. Tiny little streets which are empty in the daytime become crammed walkways which are difficult to get through. Finding a decent sleeping place in the center should not be a big problem. There is a tourist service center in the airport, where the nice ladies will book a room for you. Expect to pay between €45 and €60 for a double room and from €10 to €30 for a dorm or a shared room.

I didn't saty at the pensão Royal. I arrived one day before and went there to check the place. Lots of stairs, impossible for my age everyday have to use so many stairs. A nice and educated girl showed me the bedroom. Too tiny, so lost one day payment reservation but prefered to cancel.

Cheng Xi From Malaysia On November 30, -0001

The people that makes the place, Paula certainly made our stay there first class and it feels just like home at Pensao Royal! With her great and fresh bakery and the endless guide and reminders, our holiday in Lisboa was nothing less than wonderful! Thank you Paula! We'll be back soon!

Samuli From Finland On November 30, -0001

I had a single room with a bathroom I shared with the person in the next room. This was about the best value I have ever had for my money when it comes to accommodation. The room was small and basic but clean and comfortable. Towels (that were changed regularly), television and a smooth, free wifi were provided, and the bed was made and room cleaned every day. The staff were beyond friendly and helpful. The hostel is located in the heart of everything, but in a quiet side street so it's not noisy. The soundproofing inside was awful - I could virtually hear my next door neighbor breathing - but at these prices, who's complaining?

Malgorzata From Poland On November 30, -0001

Great staff! Dirty bathrooms. Take a taxi if you carry suitcase with wheels - that's generally a good idea in Lisbon. Computers available to use have weird OS. Google maps don't work on it properly or at least I couldn't figure it out.

great location and really good hostel. Only complaint is that we were 3 people and only received one key, which made doing sepertate activities difficult because we couldn't come and go as we pleased, and the staff said that there would always be someone there and there wasn't.

TOM From New Zealand On November 30, -0001

I stayed at this Guest House for one week and would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a basic, quiet and clean place to stay for a couple of days or so. Rita (the hostel owner) and her mum made my stay very comfortable. Like i said this palce offeres you excellent value for your money. I have nothing bad to say about this little gem. I will definitely stay there next time I am in Lisbon. PS. This comes from a person who usually stays at the hotels.

sylwia From Poland On November 30, -0001

Super location, just next to rua augusta pedestian area, very clean and modern hostel with well equiped kitchen (you can get cornflakes, tosts, jam, milk). There is one problem - extremly small one bathroom witch can be a to tiny for a tall guy, or when hostel is full (when we stayed only two rooms were occupied, so there was no problem). lovely staff.

Angela From Italy On November 30, -0001

Great position, in the city centre, next to the river and easy to reach from the airport. Rooms comfortable (but no heater!)and clean. You also have breakfast included! Really recommended! Angela and Elena from Italy
