York House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2016

The Your House has comfortable rooms, good food, and a beautiful terrace hidden away from street noise. Lush trees and vines and flowers provide beauty and shade. The staff are all friendly and welcoming. The neighborhood is worth exploring, even though it's a bit out of the way. About equidistant from Belem and from the Alfama. Strong and free wifi. In years past I've been to small conferences at the York House; they have good meeting space for ten to fifteen people.

Room Tip: There are two rooms (junior suites) with private outdoor space (for a price.)

Unfortunately the area around York House is being renovated and there is rubbish and graffiti and building going on all around. There is steep uneven steps up to the hotel and a "strong man" comes to carry your bags. Up top is a lovely terrace where you can relax and have snacks or drinks and beautiful meals. The staff are always helpful and deserve much praise. I found the room a small for a 4 star hotel but there is a nice lounge and free port and delicious custard tarts. The cleaning service is very good.

For sure a great past and it could still be a fantastic place , but it would require the intervention of some smart interior decorator in order to give a new and fancier look .
The location is quite interesting . It is an area of Lisbon not very central but which is rapidly coming back up .
Several new things around like LX factory , Ribeiro market , new fancy buildings and a great museum next door
The York House deserves to restore its old glory .
Management is , at the end , quite friendly , but they need to be understood . First impression it is not necessarily very warm.
Rooms have everything you need . They have been recently half redecorated but something is missing . Nothing to give you the feeling of an interesting place as you nowadays like to experience .

This hotel is full of charm in every corner. From the entrance at street level you have to walk a number of stairs surrounded by flowers and trees before you reach the courtyard terrace and the entrance to the reception. Once their you get a friendly welcome. Check-in was fast and efficient, and without asking, my bag was brought to my room while guiding my way up the stairs and through the corridors. That was very helpful, as the layout may seem confusing at first. The room I got was rather dark with only one small window, but a charming, old interior. The room was very quiet and sleeping quality good. The bathroom was old style, with bathtub and bidet, everything functioning well, but with the minus that it was smelling sewer, probably because the room had not been used for a long time. After staying there for two nights and using the bathroom, the smell was reduced, indicating the smell was caused by dry drains. The room had a small TV set and a free wifi that functioned well. Small bottles of water were provided free of charge, but no minibar. In the lobby area you could relax in a nice atmosphere, browsing magazines or using the computer. The breakfast buffet was excellent with scrambled eggs and bacon or susages, plus a selection of bread, cheese, pastry, etc. I can imagine the summertime is good for having breakfast in the outdoor courtyard. As my flight was early Saturday morning, the receptionist helped my book a taxi, and as breakfast was included, she insisted serving it although it would be one hour before regular breakfast time! And indeed, in the morning, everything was ready for me. I had checked out the night before, so I could just leave this hotel that to me was like a home with very friendly staff. To be recommended.

This was a lovely, historic, small hotel, well-located in Lisbon. Excellent restaurant. Highly recommended. Hotel was originally built as a convent and frequented in World War II by Jewish refugees fleeing the conflict in Europe. Very nicely updated.
