“Overall good stay, and cheap.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

I stayed here for 4 nights in a single economy room. I was expecting it to be tiny, but it wasn't. The room had a/c, tv, in-room wi-fi which worked great and a nice view of the city. The only complaints was that the bed was rock hard, but I eventually got used to it. And I could also hear people talking through the walls. Not much soundproofing which is common in these old buildings. The shared bathroom was clean, roomy and well maintained. The free breakfast was adequate- cereal, cheese & bologna slices, rolls & croissants with jams. Coffee, tea, milk and OJ. The hotel is in a great location in Barrio Alto. Close to an amazing viewpoint of Lisbon and within walking distance to many sights. This was a pretty good pick for such a low price.

Absolutely fantastic location - very close to all the restaurants in Barrio Alto, but not in the noisy hubub. The nearby Principe Real park is also a great place to relax with a coffee or drink. A cab from the airport was just 14 Euro - significantly cheaper than the pre-pay option. Staff was very helpful with storing luggage before and after check in. There's about a flight of stairs to get to the elevator, so be aware of that if you have large bags. Room was spacious. Not every room with a view of the Tagus is created equal - our windows were only in the bathroom. On the plus side, that made the room very quiet (but there wasn't much traffic noise in the rooms facing the Tagus, and even the street on the other side wasn't that busy, but if you wanted to sit at a table and stare out the window, this might not have been the room for you. Recommended and I would stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms with a Tagus view are quieter.

We stayed for 3 nights mid February 2012 - Selected the Pensao Londres from previous reviews. Do use the hotel travel guide from Lisbon Airport, easy-peasey stuff to get the bus. The Airport Bus was about 5.50 Euros return, tickets can be purchased from the ladies at the bus stop outside arrivals. One small tip, do make sure you indicate obviously, by pressing the bell in plenty of time when you want to leave the bus as the drivers don't hang about! Using the Airport Bus really gets you into the swing of Lisbon, the highlight has to be using 'Gloria' the Funicula upto the Pension which is set within the most perfect location for exploring Lisbon.
We arrived to early at 11AM and our room wasn't ready but we were able to leave our bags in the hotels bagroom until checkin time. We had a first floor double room with en-suite. The rooms are traditionally & simply furnished with very comfortable beds and of extremly high house keeping standards. We had housekeeping every day, clean towels, bed making etc. Included in the room charge is a Continental Breakfast again, all kept simple, croissants, rolls, ham's, cheeses, ample coffee/tea etc. All served by the lovely ladies :)
Bairro Alto district is a good mixture of cafe's sitauted around small parks/gardens, designer/antique shops and of an evening, the whole area is buzzing!!
If you want to explore a fabulous good value European City, and enjoy a more traditional setting, accommodation where you feel like your staying in a friends house, than this is for you.

Room Tip: If you book directly weith the hotel request a room with a view - plus book early as this place is p...

It was a wonderful stay in the hotel. We were 10, two family room and one double room for 3 nights. Room was clean and very friendly helpful reception. Room is cleaned everyday while we were out sightseeing. Taxi transfer can be arrange at the reception. Close to restaurant and trendy bar along rua de rosa. The only thing need a bit of improvement is the choice of breakfast, which was a bit limited. But for the price advertised, its definitely worth staying here.

One tip for getting to the hotel:

Due to the hotel is at the top of the hill, its worth to take the tram at 'calcada de gloria' all the way up the hill and walk to Rua Dom Pedro V. Or take the bus number 758 from 'Cais Sodré' station.

I stayed in a total of four hostels and hotels during my stay in Portugal and Pensao Londres was by far the best. The rooms are well-equipped, the staff is friendly, and the rooms are an incredibly good deal. I paid 5 euros more per night than I did in the private hostel rooms I had been staying in and got five times that back in comfort and service. Highly recommended!

Nice old building in the center of Barrio Alto, close distances to all mayor sightseeing spots. Nightlife around the hotel, but well insulating windows. Beautiful view on Tajo river from upper floors. Rooms a bit small but cosy with real furniture, no plywood hotel stuff.
Nice breakfast with croissants and lots of strooong coffee.
Helpful receptionists speak good english and are a wealth of information.
Clean!!!!!

Visited in October 2011.
Staff were always very pleasant.
+ points:
Good location for day/ night-life - walking distance to main sights/ team-stop, nice bars & restaurants nearby.
Nice enough breakfast provided in the rate.

- points:
2 single beds, not a double
'Private bathroom' was a cupboard within the room and had a serious plumbing issue which made the stay not entirely pleasant!
Noise at night with other guests coming back from night-time adventures.
