The location couldn't be better - within easy reach of all the main sites and areas of interest. Only 5min from the café Brasilaria ( we visited at midnight after a late flight and there was a lovely gentle atmosphere. ) and the nightlife area of Lisbon (dead during the day). An unassuming entrance (with a different name of the b&b displayed) leads to the flights of stairs that have been mentioned already in other reviews - not a problem when you are prepared for them. The B&B is secure as there is always someone on duty to open the locked door.
We stayed in the 'cat' room. I lost count after counting 30 or so cats... It was absolutely fabulous.. The B&B brings 'kitsch' to life. The breakfast was almost overwhelming - so vivid that I needed sunglasses, and so much of it!. Again just wonderful. Lots of fruit and cake. Paula the owner obviously works very hard and was very helpful - not minding if you took a little takeaway from the breakfast table.
Only took one star off as the mattress had a big 'dip'in it which my husband found uncomfortable, and there was only uHT milk. There was some noise but that was understandable considering the location and didn't detract from the lovely stay we had here. Thank you Paula.
