    Hotel's location is perfect - all sites within reach. There is a free Wi-Fi in all hotel's area and iHome device in the room which made the stay in the room more pleasant.

    There is no breakfast

    Superb

    A stylish boutique hotel, well located in downtown Lisbon, with clean, comfy and contemporary rooms and good facilities including free coffee. Good value for the midrange price.

    The room pictured as a Medium on the website (and what I based my booking on) was not what we actually got. In fact our room was visually identical to the one pictured as Small. The manager gave us an explanation about each room being styled differently and the square footage being calculated to suit - but I'm sorry, if i'm buying something on the internet I expect to receive exactly what I've seen and paid for. Had the 'small print' been made clearer I would have saved 40 euros and just gone for the Small, because the look and feel of the room is more important to me than a bit of extra space in the form of a small corridor between the bathroom and bedroom.

    Exceptional

    Nice big spacious room, comfortable bed. The place had an almost hostel like atmosphere, a bit more chilled out than a normal hotel, the place was sort of like a cross between a hotel, a hostel and a student apartment block. Not that myself or the other guests were students. I'm 40 and that seemed like about the average age of the guests. I sort of liked it

    The light bulb in the kitchenette didn't work. Because this is clearly not a purpose built hotel, my room's design was a bit odd. The tv (which is a nice big tv btw) for example is attached to a side wall instead of facing the bed, so basically you can't watch tv comfortably in bed. I've stayed in Lisbon city centre many times before and this has got nothing to do with Brown's but once again I got asked on the street where Brown's is located did I want to buy drugs. While the dealers aren't menacing it's still disconcerting. I wish the Portuguese police would start to do something about that. Anyway these little niggles aside, it was a nice reasonably priced and very central place to stay.

    good location and nice design. I-pad and Mac available in the room.

    Rooms are not soundprof. You can ear every noise coming from the corridor. Bad smell coming from the bathroom.

    I like it for the location and the modern design.

    I don't think the sheets was clean. I woke up with bites on my arm and back...

    Superb

    The location was excellent for those that are visiting Lisbon for the first time, close to all main sightseeing spots and Metro station Baixa- Chiado is right around the corner. The rooms were well designed and the Mac was really useful, altough the internet connection was a little unstable.

    They could offer a discount or breakfast in their Browns Cafe which is right beside the lobby.

    Hotel was in a perfect location, staff were very friendly and the room was excellent, it even had its own computer with free internet access and an i-pod dock.

    Just one thing there is no bar in the hotel but there are so many places around this didn't really bother us

    Exceptional

    We loved this hotel. It is situated in the old centre, close to most touristic sites and to all sorts of public transportation. The building is old but painstakingly redecorated in great taste. The rooms are high-tech with an iMac and an iPad station to serve as everything from music to alarm clock to city guides to game centre. A neat idea. Actually, the iMac is somewhat an overkill, the iPad would have amply sufficed. The hotel has very good internet on all floors, a real pleasure for a net addict like myself. The room itself was rather small, not too much place to move around once one climbs out of the very comfy bed. The bathroom is clean and in very good condition, albeit also quite small and with a stand-up shower, no tub. The rooms have a very sparse kitchenette as well, with a fridge, a small stove, a microwave and an assortments of dishes, cutlery and glasses. We did not use it, since we only stayed for a week-end, but it would have come in handy should we have stayed longer. We did not have breakfast in the hotel, as we preferred to linger in bed in the mornings and then go for a coffee in one of the close-by coffee shops. All in all, the hotel vastly exceedeed our expectations and we warmly recommend it for all voyagers, especially the tech-savvy ones.

    Nothing, really. I would have liked the rooms a tad larger, but this is just me playing the spoiled brat, everything was fine, actually.

    Exceptional

    Great for geeks like me: iMac and ipad in the room. Good internet connection. Good location. Eclectic and funky interior both in the room or in the common area.

    Bathroom set up is a bit awkward. With limited space and cool stuff to put in, the usability is sacrificed a bit.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Interier design. Stylish. Kitchen included. Computers with wi-fi.

    Bad sound proof walls. At night could hear all building noises.

    Very good

    It is a nice hotel. The rooms are small, but comfortable. Our room had tv, computer with wireless internet, and a very small kitchen. We never used the kitchen but it was nice to have a fridge to save some drinks. There is a free coffee and hot chocolate machine at the reception. The hotel is located right on downtown Lisbon, very close to Chiado metro station, from a walking distance of the river, Rua Augusta (the shopping district) or Bairro Alto. If you want to know the city, this is a nice hotel to stay in. You can walk to almost anywhere and the hotel is nice for the price.

    We arrived on a Saturday and we did not have hot water until Sunday night. There was a problem with the heating system and there was no backup. It took too long to solve the problem. Some guests have no respect for others and, because of that, we woke up during the night, they spoke too loud, banged the doors, etc...
