We stayed 5 nights at this exceptionally well managed hotel by owner with great attention to details. The staff from reception, porter to housekeeping offered excellent services making us feel welcome and at home. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast in the morning and tea time in the afternoon. It is well located a block from the busy Avenida de Liberdade... More

The hotel is in the heart of Lisbon (like the Madison Ave. of Lisbon) but because it's one street behind a major thoroughfare and close to metro and hop-on/hop-off, it is q quiet venue. The history behind the establishment is amazing and the hotel staff are welcoming and warm. Having a complimentary glass of port at the end of a... More

The hotel staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. The bedrooms are spacious and in typical art-deco style, just like the rest of the hotel. The location is great, being very central, however despite being on a side street off the main shopping street, the street-side rooms are noisy. The hotel has its' own car-park (€15 / night) and when they... More

Stayed for 4 nights on a business trip to Lisbon. The hotel has a strong history and is full of old world charm in both the public areas and the room. I stayed in room 14 which was huge, and very comfortable. High class amenities, Molton Brown. Super buffet breakfast and good free wi-fi. No restaurant in the hotel but... More

ThIs hotel redefines superb hospitality. From the moment you arrive until departure you are made to feel so welcome, as if part of the Britania Hotel family. The excellence of the design, bedrooms, public areas and location has been recorded accurately by previous reviewers. What sets this hotel apart is the attention of all the staff, reception, porters, bar staff,... More

We have stayed for 3 nights in Avenida Palace previously and decided to stay one night here. We were disappointed by worn and dirty looking rugs, low quality robes. Everything looked tired. Eventhough it is not a cheap place to stay, but they also asked extra 10 euros for breakfast. Will not stay there again.

Spent seven nights at the Britania and couldn't fault the hotel, staff or location. The size of the hotel (~30 rooms) and the helpful staff combine to make the service feel very personal. Our room was large and very comfortable with AC and the ability to open windows (something we very much value because AC is often unnecessary). There was... More

We stayed at this hotel on our last night in Portugal. It had a very convenient location for getting to the airport early the next morning and an attached car park. The street it's on is very busy and hard to stop at, but the staff will quickly come out to valet your car and help with your bags. The... More

Britania Hotel was the centerpiece of our 4-day stay in Lisbon. Accommodations were spacious and modern. The hotel is perfectly maintained with staff that was beyond gracious and accommodating.

A very very nice hotel with exceptionally pleasant and helpful staff. The hotel has character and we just loved the art deco surroundings. If you want a hotel that is slightly quirky and not like the bland hotel chains then this is the place to stay. It is one of the nicest hotels that we have ever stayed in and... More
