“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Ribeira Tejo Boutique Guesthouse is really a nice place to stay. It's just a charm of Lisbon that you can touch. The location is great so many attrative places near by and good view of the river in the morning plus free Wi-fi that what the travelers need during their trip. So don't miss this place when you go to Lisbon!

Room Tip: Higher floor with the river bridge view.

Staff welcomes you with a smiling face and they are very nice people and helpful. Hotel is located really close to Tejo river, just 2 minutes by walking. General decoration and rooms are really nice and cute. We especially loved the cute balcony and the white big long window doors :). Breakfast is delicious especially If you have it with the window seat and amazing tejo river view. We loved this place and we are sure that we will be staying here longer.

We loved this place. They've done a great job renovating the building and its tastefully and sympathetically decorated. The room was beautiful (although slightly lacking in storage/hanging space for clothes), the hospitality was flawless, the breakfast delicious especially if you get the window seat with the view across the Tejo to the Cristo Rei statue.
The location is incredibly handy for transport and a short walk to Barrio Alto and Baixa / Chiado. Although not the smartest area we found it perfectly safe and it had a really nice atmosphere - the little bar next door obviously a popular hang out for young professionals and a couple of nice eateries across the square.

The location is great and the area will certainly look great once they finish paving part of the street. Don't be turned off by the entrance and the homeless people outside. hey won't bother you and it is safe. Once you enter the guesthouse, everything is tastefully decorated and the rooms feature azulejos all around the room.

The hosts and the whole team are extremely helpful and friendly.

Breakfast is amazing!

If you are a light sleeper, it may not be the right guesthouse for you as it tends to be noisy, specially on weekends. That said, all the rooms have double pained.

Try it...you'll love it!

The rooms were cute. My husband and I had a very small room that looked out to a brick wall. We thought that our friends got the better deal as they had a street view and a much bigger room. As it turned out though, we were the lucky ones as our room was quiet and we were able to sleep. Our friends were awake all night because of the partying (and this was only a thursday night) in the street down below. They partied until 7:00am. The staff were good, the food was good. The place was clean. The bed was fine. I wouldn't go back, but it was okay.

Room Tip: Definitely insist on a room facing away from the street if you want to get any sleep at all.

I stayed at Ribeira for three nights and love it! Ribeira Tejo is a 15-room guesthouse in Cais do Sodre neighborhood, which gives you access to metro, bus, trams and train to Cascais. The streets may look dark and shady, but I had no issues when I was there. The room is nicely decorated with stylish furniture. You can tell the room is very new and well maintained. I had the room on the 3rd floor. The room is clean and spacious, and comes with free wifi.

I'm very impressed with the hospitality of the staff team. I arrived around 11.30 pm, but I was happy that someone was waiting for me on the fifth floor (you just need to ring the bell). For a small guesthouse, you'll never know what's going to happen. Make sure you tell the staff what time you plan to arrive. Upon arrival, I received a welcome package (maps with local recommendations, attractions and bus/tram lines). It's nothing fancy but it's full of very useful information. All the staff at breakfast were very nice. They'll serve you coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. Local crepes and pastries are just delicious. I really look forward to walking upstairs to eat my breakfast every morning.

Lastly, I would have given Ribeira Tejo five stars if they can deal with the noise issues. The guesthouse is located next to a local restaurant which opens quite late. At night you can hear some noises from people throwing trash with empty bottles in the garbage. The apartments have wooden floor. You may hear people outside of your room walking the stairs to get breakfast in the morning.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and would come back if I were in Lisbon again. For the price I paid, I think it's a great value for money. Obrigado Ribeira Tejo!

We stayed here when it just opened and had a very enjoyable stay. We found the hospitality to be great for such a smaller type hotel / B&B with reception taking plenty of time to explain the area and provide additional information. We found the recommendations on restaurants great and thought the value for money was exceptional. I would recommend this for anyone coming to Lisbon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu was once by the river… Actually only the Mercado da Ribeira and the Cais do Sodre station separate the fully renovated building of the Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu from the River Tagus. Most of the tiles from the 19th Century were renovated and can be seen from various points of the communal areas and also in some double and family suites. Take the lift to the 4th floor and simply use the stair to go up to the 5th floor, where you will find the best view at the Ribeira Tejo by Shiadu. There is nothing better than friendly and dedicated staff to welcome you and serve you a delicious home-made breakfast where you will have the opportunity of watching the ships go by, crossing under the 25th of April Bridge along with looking out to the Cristo Rei always on the lookout for any movement. Then, filled with energy you may begin your visit of Lisbon through the neighbourhoods of Chiado, Baixa and Bairro Alto which are less than a 10 minute walk-away from the Guesthouse, or if you prefer, you may also get on the No. 15 tram or the No. 28 tram to Alfama and Belem. Follow your instinct... we are waiting for you ! ... more   less
