What made this five star? EVERYTHING!! Hugo, the concierge, was amazingly responsive, helpful, and hard working. The property itself is in pristine condition and an AMAZING location, the amenities were outstanding and the vibe of it all had us feeling like we had been duped and we would actually be charged $700/night instead of the super reasonable rate they offer. Do not miss this place and make sure to connect with the amazing and professional Hugo !!

Verandas de Lisboa is a great accommodation with amazing staff and service. The hotel is a former apartment building converted into spacious, cozy rooms and suites - much larger than the usual hotel room, decorated with taste, and very clean. We simply loved our experience there!

The place is also perfectly located: a stone throw away from the waterfront; 3 mins walk to the pedestrian zone and Praca de Commerco; metro and bus stations are located right outside the building. Also, two good restaurants are just outside the door, and several Fado places (famous Portuguese music) only a few steps away in Alfama. Whatever you’re looking for in Lisbon, you’ll find it close by!

The greatest thing about the “Verandas”, though, is the wonderful people who work there: Rahima and her team made us feel very welcome and comfortable and fulfilled any request, big or small, within the blink of an eye. They treated us as a family and took care of us from the moment we arrived till the very end of our stay.

We can recommend this place to travelers of all types, be it couples, families, or groups. And we will definitely come back! Thank you very much dear Rahima, Hugo and everyone else at Verandas!

For the price of this accommodation it punches above its weight. The 2 bed apartment was exceptionally spacious and clean, kitchen includes a dishwasher and full sized fridge/freezer. Charming decoration, comfy beds, air conditioning and excellent bathrooms. Lift from 1st floor. Quiet location set back from roads so very little road noise. No catering, but as you step outside the door there are half a dozen restaurants in front of the building, and many more 5 mins away. These offer a decent menu for better prices than those in the main tourist areas. The historic plaza (Praca do Comercio), and tram stop is 7 mins walk, metro 5 mins, buses 3 mins walk. Ideal!!! Don't expect 5 star accommodation, but this is ideal for those on a budget. Staff couldn't be more helpful!

We stayed in the family apartment with a river view. The host that we spoke to over the phone prior to the trip and welcomed us was lovely and really helpful. The hotel is in an ideal location located just opposite the river and a 10 minute walk from the city centre with a selection of restaurants on it's doorstep - as we travelled over the New Year we were lucky enough to see a cruise ship docked in the river over this period. It was a little tricky getting into the hotel when we first arrived as the door is not immediately visible amongst the restaurant seating that blocks it during busy periods. The main concern from our side was that for the majority of our trip, including the daytime, the hotel was unmanned with nobody at reception which can be a little unsettling if you are accustomed to staff being around. We actually only met the host once! Our code to access the hotel also stopped working one evening so we had to whatsapp the host who quickly resolved the problem for us. If you're travelling by car don't fall in to the tourist trap of paying the outdoor car parking touters nearby the hotel opposite the river, use the indoor car park instead that's closest to the hotel! It's a shame half scores are not an option for this hotel as it's neither a 3, nor a 4 from us - 3.5 sounds just about right.

We liked this place for being so central, having a view of the water and not being high up on any hills to climb. They have Air conditioning in all rooms which helps on hot days. The staff were accomodating and happy to communicate via Wattsapp. We had two apartments and one had a nice kitchenette and hangout space. Shower pressure good, and the size pretty good for Europe. Restaurants below are ok for a drink and a snack. Cathedral just through the back door of the hotel and up a very short street. Try the amazing rooftop bar nearby at the Memmo Alfama hotel. Easy to get to from airport (my taxi was €12). If you have a rental car you have to park across the road in the underground parking garage and pay so we just used taxis and Uber to get to Cascaise (a nice beach village, €30) and Sintra (where all the incredible palaces are, €15 from Cascaise).

We rented two apartments for seven people, a two bedroom and loft. The two bedroom was huge with large kitchen and living space and two bathrooms (one shower in larger one. The loft was on the top floor and was a smaller space and a two shared bathrooms with other guests. I didn’t realize that when booking but wasn’t a problem as they were clean and mostly unoccupied when we were there. When you get there, plan for carrying your luggage up two flights of stairs as the office and elevators are not on main level. There is an entrance in the back that enters onto the 1st floor so that might be easier if you can’t carry. Hotel staff is very nice and helped with the luggage. Ubers are easy and come fast. We were out most of every day and a great place to stay as everything is close.

Booked a prepaid 2 bedroom riverview suite for family holiday in July. Upon arrival, told "issue" with hotels.com booking and only room they had was an under-renovation, unairconditioned (crazy hot that week in Lisbon; almost 100 degrees) apartment in a nearby building that had no elevator (I had a hip replacement several months earlier), no lighting in stairwell, dirty (pubic hair on sheets of both beds). Manager said this was the only room available, despite that I had a confirmed and paid-for booking for a completely different unit. During the few days we had to stay there (high season, no other hotels around available), we had workmen coming and going for the renovations; sometimes while we were there and sometimes not. Horribly disappointed, as I'd read many other good reviews of this place and was excited by the photos of the beautiful suites and great views, but unfortunately, my family didn't get one, even though we'd booked and paid for it. I've booked over 500 hotel nights in past 10 years and never had anything remotely like this problem. What happened is that hotel is trying to make up for lost covid-revenue and took a double (higher rate) booking than mine, bumping me to this hot, dirty, unaccessible, crappy unit. Talked to manager several times with no adequate resolution. Very dishonest management, buyer beware!

Dear Dave, We would like to thank you for taking the time to write your review. Our Team is really sad that you didnt had the best experience, we daily make all the efforts to create a family environment with all of our guests and we are allways ready to find the best solutions. Unfortunately there was a mistake with the responsability being from Hotels.com and even that this was not our fault, we tried our best and offered you two solutions, cancel the reservation with no cost or staying in one recently renewd apartment outside of our property. Once again we are really sad that you had a bad experience and we like to invite you to commeback again. Please contact me when you visit Lisbon to the email: manager@varandaslisboatejo.com.

Our family of four had a great stay here in a two bedroom apartment. The staff is super friendly, and the hotel is in a historic old building in the heart of the old area of Lisbon. It is super easy to get around walking or via public transport to all the main sites. There are also some fabulous restaurants nearby

Excellent location. The north entrance gives you direct access to Alfama and the south entrance puts your right across the river with excellent restaurants and 5 minute walk to downtown. The room was clean, well decorated, and everything worked as it should. Bed was stiff but some may like that. Staff was friendly and helpful for any requests.

For a safe and enjoyable experience, here are a few recommendations: Praça do Comércio: The square itself is a central location and offers a great view of the fireworks. Ribeira das Naus: The riverside promenade next to Praça do Comércio provides a good view of the river and the fireworks. Best regards, Hugo Marçal - Operations Manager

Dear Guest, All the rooms are private meaning that whenever the guest goes out the room can be locked with the key. In the studio, suites and apartments there is no key, but a code. It means that only the guest staying on that specific accommodation type will have the code to open it.
