I loved everything about this hotel, warm and welcoming staff. Exquisite furnishings in a medieval authentic style.
Breakfast in a stylish dining area, both inside or outside in the courtyard was excellent.

Hotel comfortable and very nice sitting areas inside and out. Situated on top of one of the many hills so steep walk home. But taxis are cheap and easy to find. Honesty bar was handy and complementary port in the room was nice touch.

Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of
Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.

We booked and paid for this hotel in the UK in £ as it was part of a walking holiday package. However, the hotel honesty bar prices were quoted in euros so we paid in euros for the drinks and for the tourist tram/bus/boat tickets purchased at reception. Hope this helps.
