We stayed here 10 days and it's a perfect home away from home - amazing roof terrace with inside and outside seating and 360 views of Lisbon, very warm and hospitable hosts, good breakfasts, wifi everywhere and good, clean rooms. Francisco who runs the place is a lovely, charming guy and Rita and Pilar are very helpful too. We had...

Dear AbiGoldFlake, Thank you so much for your feedback. It was so nice having you both at TheHOUSE, and I am very happy to see that you really liked it. Thank you for the Sacramento suggestion as well! It was the first time a guest recommended me something, it usually is the other way around. I just hope my suggestions...

The House is the best of the four B&Bs we stayed in our 3-week trip to Spain and Portugal. Location is good - a 2 min-walk from tram-28-and-25 stops, many taxis around, and close to a cathedral. It's true the metro stations take a longer walk (around 15 minutes or so), but manageable for us. The first time we took...

Dear TimKTChan, Sadly I don't think we met in the end; I am Francisco, the owner of TheHOUSE. Thank you so much for your very nice review. I take pleasure in all our positive reviews but this one made me especially happy and proud of my staff. Due to poor health I cannot be at TheHOUSE at all times, even...

This is a truly wonderful small hotel. The facilities are excellent and the proprietor and all the multilingual staff are passionately (but not intrusively) interested in you and your visit. Don't be put off by what seems like an out-of the way location. You can see everything from the stunningly beautiful penthouse lounge, and Lisbon is a smaller city than...

I recently did a solo trip to Portugal and while researching places to stay in Lisbon, I came across Trip Advisor's review for The House. I generally prefer B&Bs for a more intimate and authentic local experience and given the reviews, I actually pushed back my trip by a week just to book with them. And after seeing some of...

The staff at The House could not be more welcoming and helpful. Rita, at the front desk, found vegetarian friendly restaurants, made reservations for me for a city tour, booked my taxi and best of all was warm and welcoming. Francisco, the owner, joined me for breakfast (I was traveling alone) and told me all about not only the history...

Dear CactuSue, Just wanted to thank you taking the time to write us such a nice review. It really was a pleasure having breakfast with you and I am glad you liked it, and TheHOUSE too. In the end this is why I started this business for. Best of luck for your business, don't forget to bring your family next...

Me and my husband stayed at the House 5 nights October20th until October25th. I must say this was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. We stayed in the Belem room, which was lovely. Comfortable beds, plenty of room, nice balcony - terrific. And the roof terrace of course was fabulous. We enjoyded it for hours and...

Dear Ritva R, Thank you so much for your review. I too was sad not to have met both you and your husband (actually setting up the TV you requested was the last thing I did before leaving for Paris) but am very happy to hear, once again, that my staff is more than able to take good care of...

We stayed at The House for the first 2 nights and also the last night of our trip in Portugal (we landed in Lisboa). We found this place through tripadvisor.

Many more guests have stayed with an even better rate of approval, as can be read in TheHOUSE's guestbook. In many cases, guests that reviewed us in 5-star commentaries also suggested we...

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the house October 8-11,2011. It is located in a nice upper middle class neighborhood about 10 minutes tram ride from city center, very convenient.

Terrific location, comfortable room, wonderful breakfast with fresh orange juice and Portuguese pastries.

A convenient location for getting into the city centre, close to the basilica estrela and the 28 & 25 tram routes. Our room was compact but had everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable, the terrace has amazing views over the city. The staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful. We recommend the Restaurante Principe Calhariz - a few...
