A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
Eat, see, and stay in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
This is truly one of those historic experiences you can have that is worth doing. Get up early and miss the crowds for it and catch it from one end to the other. Another way to cheat the crowd is to go and catch it from the second or third stop on it.
While wandering through Lisbon, we literally found this museum and we were so glad we stopped in. I honestly don't remember learning much about Portugal in school. We learned about colonization and that's it. A brutal dictator, political prison camps, "labor camps", and thousands of Portuguese citizens who simply disappeared all from the 1950s-70s!! Sadly, we also saw billboards for...
A great find.Terrific food at extremely reasonable prices ensured we had the perfect lunch on our day in Lisbon.The menu is not overly long so quality is kept high.I had sardines perfectly cooked on the open grill whilst my wife failed miserably to make a dent in the turkey escalopes served with rice and chips.I had to help out and...
wonderful creative kitchen. very tasty and innovative tapas that we enjoyed with homemade Sangria. the grilled octopus was something to due for. just Sangria a bit overpriced but a every good suggestion from TripAdvisor
We arrived on the day celebrated as the Festival of St. Anthony (or Festival of Sardines, if you prefer) and, when we inquired, were advised to take public transportation to the hotel because of traffic and blocked streets. This was a non-starter as there was no way we could manage our luggage on public transportation. A little more attention to...
We have been guests for 5 days and we were stunned by the historical style. Great rooms with an indescribable atmosphere. The staff was excellent, well dressed and all trained very well. Unfortunately being well dressed doesnt go for all guests. - Some preferred to enjoy breakfast in sportswear.
Breakfast is fantastic. - The best I have ever had, combined...
My Story Rossio was in a perfect location. Rooms are tiny, however. But have everything needed! Breakfast was quite good. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Lobby is tiny!
Meeting taxi or Uber a bit of a problem.
Prices are competitive. Something about the place is right!!
Despite my reservations, it still deserves highest ratings, since it delivers what it does...
This hotel had beautiful, comfortable rooms (great shower!) and was quiet and peaceful. Great location, in a nice neighborhood near many restaurants. The food at the hotel restaurant was good, and we were even treated to live Fado music one evening. What really made the stay exceptional though, was the attentive and friendly staff. Everyone was wonderful!
Ideally positioned within walking distance of restaurants, the main square, the river etc.
The reception and restaurant staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Our room was very good. The breakfast was not overwhelming but was more than adequate. The punchline:- we would stay there again without hesitation.
