I really did not like this guest house at all. We were given a back room..as in like a room behind the main guest house ..the room smelled of fresh paint which was rather suffocating..even though the place looks newly refurbished our shower was broken and there was no hot water ..the room was soo small..I could not breath at...

We stayed in Lavra for 2 nights. It is in perfect location, walking distance to the city center. It is old building refurbished with modern amenities. We had beautiful room on 4th floor with nice city and sea view. It has a lot of stairs so if you do not feel comfortable with that, you may consider other hotel /...

Stayed in the Penthouse Suite. This had a huge balcony with table and 2 chairs and 2 sun loungers. The views were amazing. We sat out with coffee in the mornings and wine/beers as the sun was going down. Very spacious. There was also a fridge, cooker, hob, kettle, toaster and coffee maker. Breakfast was only €5 and there was...

Sitting on the top of a hill the way there is rather strenuous. You have to get down from the hill again to get access to anything of use. The hotel itself is great, modern rooms, modern marble bathrooms, roof terrace with a great view. No aircon but a strong fan. Good wifi. For the Americans - no elevator. Value...

This is ideal for the price. Great central location in a neighbourhood full of locals, not tourists, meaning the shops and restaurants nearby are much cheaper and nicer than the city centre. The roof terrace was fantastic, but the lack of a.c let the place down. The rooms are also very small, so only book here if you plan on...

Room and staff are very nice. The neighborhood is probably not the best you can be in Lisbon though. And if visiting Lisbon during the summer months - things twice before booking this place: there is no AC in the rooms. We opened the window to keep the room cooler during the night, unfortunately garbage collection in Lisbon on that...

The room was small, very narrow and with no AC very hot. Very small bathroom, but modern and clean. Since there was no AC we had to leave the window open during the night, the street is very loud and we couldn't sleep because the heat and the noises from the street. Not a pleasant experience.

When booking the Lavra my expectations were not high as I had seen many mixed reviews. However, all I can say is that things must have improved since last year because I had no problem with wi-fi, my room was not tatty; in fact very modern and clean. Yes it was spartan, but note this is a guesthouse and not...

Room very basic...no tea or coffee making facilities or water in the room. Tatty. Hard uncomfortable mattress. Area not good. We were in an annex at the back of the house...across an open courtyard which was scruffy and steps were slippery. Would not return

“Wifi was very spotty. Chose room 301 if you want a room with a view. Shabby chic is kind of the vibe.”

“No lift in the guesthouse, Best are superior rooms facing lisbon from upward position looking at the terrace never too noisy.”
nenotrip, 28 Aug 2014 | Read review
“Aks for a room with a view. The ones facing east, from the second floor up. The ones facing east have a view of the city. The ones facing west seemed to be bigger, and are facing the street, which is not at all busy – although there are cars passing through it. There is no A/C, but in a breezy city like Lisbon, that is not a problem in my view.”
