If you're looking for a genuine and welcoming Portuguese way of living don't look any further. We proudly love to show our city and to help make you feel at home is indeed our goal. Anyway, this is not an hotel, ok! :) This is a B&B for relaxed people that consider comfort and prime location together with a local home service and company the most important thing to have when on holidays. While here you'll find the rest of the small luxuries we have for you always with private ensuite toilet/bathroom and daily breakfast included.

Your host, Luis, is a native with infinite knowledge of Lisbon, and Portugal. He is recognized throughout the area, and will warmly welcome you to his hometown as well. Luis had suggestions and directions to sites and restaurants throughout Lisbon—and Portugal. And, took time to present options and suggestions based on my level of adventurousness or need for relaxation. He was a perfect host! The location is centrally located in the Chiado/Barrio Alto neighborhoods which offer great restaurants, sites to visit, and shops to explore. Transportation via tram or Metro was within a few minutes walk, too. My room was clean and well appointed with reliable WiFi. An ample, healthful breakfast was included in the very reasonable room cost. The terrace room I occupied afforded a beautiful panoramic view of Lisbon, and I slept like a baby. I highly recommend this BnB for anyone looking for a comfortable, welcoming, and friendly place to alight when visiting Lisbon for a few days or a week or (??)! THANK YOU, Luis!

I had stayed in Zuza Guesthouse in 2017 and had such an excellent stay that, for my first trip since covid 19 started, I wanted to stay somewhere known and comfortable. Zuzabed is centrally located - footsteps from major attractions, bus and metro stops, restaurants etc. It is run by Luis who made sure I was well looked after and had many suggestions for things to do and see. The breakfasts were generous and delicious - often accompanied by music and with other guests for company. My room had a marvellous view of the city; was quiet; private; very clean with adequate space and access to a nice terrace. It was perfect for my 5 days stay and I look forward to staying again in the future!

It was wonderful to welcome you back to our beautiful city even with Covid measures enforced to keep everyone safe and healthy.    We like to receive feedback and experiences so our appreciation  for taking the time to share with us and the TA community.  🥰 Breakfast is an important  part of our Guests introduction to a new day full of exploration. Thus, the Zuza ambience is set with a soundtrack to begin your day accompanied by a vast and varied buffet for every palate. Let's not forget the dining room and breakfast is a great way to meet other travelers and share ideas, discussion and travel tips.

My wife and I had a few days in the B&B and had a great time. We were a little early to Lisbon and Luis met us at a nearby restaurant to get us checked in. :Luis even helped me carry the bags up to the room. The B&B was well located in the Chicado and Bairro Alto area and offered us a quick walk to anything we wanted to see. The metro is not far away and there are many restaurants, bars and grocery stores nearby. The room was small as many are in the area, but very functional. We had a large bed that was very comfortable and the private bathroom was fully equipped. The wifi worked out well and even after I mentioned on the first day that it was running a bit slow, Luis was on the phone with this provider the next day and it worked like a dream afterwards. There is a coffee maker and a small fridge as well. Every morning, the B&B offers a nice breakfast with beverages, breads, spreads and his team will cook you bacon and eggs if you desire. All the guests met at his communal table and had a good time. Luis was onsite each morning of my stay so that we could ask questions about the city, get recommendations, or just chat. Luis worked very hard to make sure that we had a great stay. We saw him around picking up and delivering supplies to the property and he was always available to answer a question or help. We even saw Luis at a local restaurant and he came over, greeted us and helped interface with the staff to help us get a table. Ana amazingly friendly gentleman who has a passion for making sure that his guests are having a good time. We were in need of a great time away and our stay at Zuzabed helped make it happen. The property was great, the other guests were really great and the service from Luis was really outstanding. The next time, I am in Lisbon (which I hope is soon), I will definitely see if Luis has a room available.

If you go to Lisbon, book your stay at Zuzubed. Our host, Mr. Zuzarte, made sure we had everything we wanted or needed for a wonderful stay. Even provided us a phone to use during our stay! A very kind act, and made us have the feeling of "being at home with family" Warm, personable and very great staff also. Located in the city center, with great city view from the balconies. Highly recommend for a great value also.😊👍🏾

Good afternoon dear JoyceH , Many many thanks for your warm and kind words. We enjoyed visiting with you as much as you enjoyed visiting our beautiful city of Lisbon! It's great to know the complimentary phone is so handy and created that safe and at home feeling. That's the idea and you are always connected if you need us. You had the city at your fingertips for exploring the sights, shops and restaurants. It's gratifying to know you had such a relaxing long stay with us and I have enjoyed every single minute we've spent together chatting at breakfasts. ☕️🥮🍳🍓🍏🥐 "A relaxing stay" that's what we like to hear... and read from our Guests. Location, food, ambience, comfort, that's what we offer our Guests for a fabulous stay. We look forward to your return visit to share more of Lisbon 's special places! You are most welcome and part of the Zuza family. Thanks again for taking the time to write and share with TA readers. With best wishes for a safe and healthy 2022, Luis Zuzarte

I know I am repeating previous reviews of Zuzabed, but I love staying here so much. Luis and company really take care of you. I feel like I'm visiting family. I stayed in the Home Garden room, which is the very first room I ever stayed in here, back in 2009, and this stay was every bit as special as my first. The room is lovely, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast is so delicious and the perfect start to the day. The location of the B&B is great - central to everything. There are a lot of stairs, but Lisbon is full of stairs. LOL. Luis is a wonderful host, with so much info about seeing Lisbon. I cannot recommend Zuzabed more highly.

From the moment Luis picked me up from the aiport (even though I had no expected it or asked for it)to the moment I left 3 days later every aspect of my stay at Zuzabed was perfect; it literally could not have been improved upon. Luis hosts with true kindness and intelligence - the breakfast, as well as being copious and delicious is a hilghlight, the room is great, the location so central everything is within easy walking distance. All in all for a first tiem in Lisboa I could not have picked a better and as I plan to return again and again to Lisbon also plan to go back to Zuzabed for each of those visits :)

Hello hello dear Maribel, Thank you so much for the kind words regarding your recent visit to Zuzabed. We all at Team Zuza are happy to know you have enjoyed your stay with us here in Lisbon historic city center and we were helpful in all you have needed during your time visiting our beloved city of Lisboa! 😊 About your note on the pics available; well, I have to say that many guests have commented directly to me that the pictures don’t do justice to what we have to offer in reality! Obviously, a great signal of the authenticity we proudly use in all aspects of our daily activity here on Zuzabed. 😊 Was a pleasure meeting you all and we do hope to have the chance to see you again in the future. You’ll be always most welcome at Zuzabed Accommodations. All my best regards, Luis

Good evening dear Leo, greetings 🤗 Thanks once again for your loyalty to the Zuza brand. We always love to see repeat Guests which tells us we've succeeded in being one's home away from home. 🤗 Sharing our city of Lisbon and taking good care of our beloved Guests is what we do best. Our Location points us in all directions of interest for the visitors that arrive for the first time or many visits after that. ❤ Glad you enjoy the breakfast. We try to keep our local fruits 🥝🍎🍇 throughout the seasons for our Guests to sample and of course who can't resist a brewed pot of Portuguese coffee around the dining room table. Additionally, adding a taste of our homemade typical Portuguese compotes for fresh bread or toast have many guests shopping for flavors to take home a bit of our beautiful, and in this case, our delicious Portugal!! 🥰 Thank you so much for the time you took to share your good experience with us. We hope to see you back soon. All my best regards, Luis Zuzarte

I just happened to browse here on my search on trip advisor for other properties for my stay in Lisbon since I was frustrated with the communication and lack of replies for my scheduled repeat stay at the Zuza properties. I had hoped to repeat a nice stay from 2017 but I was given personal reasons and excuses of family issues for the lack of responses ( 2 weeks of waiting for emails) and yet I see that there are long entries on the trip advisor from the contact person. Finally fed up I cancelled the stay but I found myself obliged to enter this review as the delays and the lack of communication cause me problems and feel completely wronged. I think that those who are able to stay should be aware that this is a business that is spotty and subject to "selective" business practices. The only communication that was on time was the acknowledgment of my cancellation with a simple "very busy here" excuse.

piel_canela_2009, It with great disappointment that I read your "review " without staying at the property. Perhaps disappointed is an understatement. I am utterly appalled at your false accusations and demeanor in a public forum. Your words smack of slander with regard to my business practices. Word of caution; be careful with your words when you speak ill of someone. Your words can come back to bite you, if you know what I mean. With regard to your comments, you received replies in ample time to plan your trip scheduled for November 2nd which was immediately confirmed knowing that was a 4 nights stay and as per the information you have read online prior to book and also in the automatic email you have received immediately after you’ve completed the reservation. Since we were communicating in alternate formats of media (email, whatsapp, phone), you chose to take our conversation to a public forum. After much deliberation, I decided to respond to you in this open public forum as well. It appears you are looking for a response publicly. To clarify for readers, you and I communicated via email, phone and whatsapp from mid September to mid October on different occasions. For example, you asked about a kitchen, I replied yes there is a kitchen. You asked if there were pots and pans in the kitchen... well my answer is also yes, there are pots and pans 😉. Honestly it doesn’t make sense for me to rent an accommodation with kitchen and stove and not to have pots and pans, dishes and all cookware available for Guests use. Something like “we provide the kitchen and stove, you bring pots and pans and dishes” 😉; buuuuuut maybe I’m wrong thinking this way, and who knows, probably your question makes sense. Apart of the blankets for the cold, each question was duly answered. It appears you are angry and that I am causing "problems" (?!?!?) There are no problems. Either you as a repeat Guest waits for my next response or you opt to cancel the reservation. You chose the latter. Anyway, it’s funny to see that you forgot to mention that that you had speedy answers and you were thankful for that, and I quote your words “I am glad I contacted you!”. Then yes there was a time that due to several reasons you were informed of on the phone, I was away, and I left you without an answer about blankets and… you’ve decided to cancel! I am truly shocked with your attitude towards an establishment you had stayed in the past and then do an about face publicly. Most people would be patient knowing the past two years we have all endured. I am proud to note that since 2006 I have only less than 1% guests that have chosen to cancel. I do not practice "selective business" practices, nor will I begin to do so. Spotty is the opposite of what I represent. I represent integrity and honesty. You decided to cancel; we don’t select guests to cancel. You say that I have poor customer service!!! Well, this poor customer service agent was the same one that on the very first speedy reply in the very same day, promptly decided, out of the blue, to offer you a private transfer service at arrival so you could have a car waiting for you at the airport. And this decision I’ve made it was much before you’ve decided to make your online reservation. I’m sorry for such a bad customer service! When you’ve inquired about the possible long term, on the phone I’ve told you yes we also do that and by email you mentioned how difficult it has been to find assistance with others out there, and I quote “…it has been a real problem to find assistance on this matter and having stayed with you in the past we know the quality of your apartments.” 😊 Yes, it’s true our accommodations and service are outstanding, and we are famous also for that! Because of all this, I can understand you are mad, obviously with yourself, for not having wait a bit longer before the abrupt decision to cancel! Because you know what you’ll be missing with a great value. And It is obvious you are craving attention and looking for a bone to pick. You are looking in the wrong direction as Zuza Guests pride themselves on polite, dignified behavior. And our bones are full and fluffy with positive feelings. Through frequent communication and a written cancellation, this review appears to be written after the fact to inflict damage to an establishment you once loved to stay at. Very strange and something I don't encounter very often if at all. We proud to have only the best Guests in the world and repeat Guests, after meeting me and knowing how I personally deal with everyone without any exception, are usually very understanding as we have established a relationship. Well, that was until now, because obviously you placed yourself as the exception! In closing, wishing you well in future stays with other proprietors. It is probably best that you decided to cancel for everyone involved at this point. Your comments have revealed your true character by writing comments about a lack of response regarding blankets (the only question you had not yet received an answer). Sincerely, Luis Zuzarte

Hello Vladimir! The autumn season's upon us but the skies are a beautiful blue, the sun is out at its brightest and the temperatures remind us of summer afternoons. We are lucky to have such an extended "summer". Thanks for taking the time to share your trip and I'm glad everything was to your liking. So happy to read that you enjoyed your time with us, and your feedback is warmly received. From my side, with all my honesty I can tell you that I’ve immensely enjoyed meeting you both and to be able to share my beautiful city with you. B&B Zuzabed is always an interesting place to meet and chat with fellow travelers over a breakfast spread, share experiences and recommendations; always with a good mood starting the day always with a smile! 😊 We do boast that we have a super locale in the center of all the sights from every direction. Easy to navigate your itinerary and see so much just walking out the door! Once again thank you for the preference as also for your great positive vibe! Keep smiling and enjoying life the way you do! 😊 Happy future travels and look forward to hosting you again on your next trip to Lisbon. All my best regards to you and family, Luis
