Lisbon is a beguiling city, uniquely spread over seven hills that overlook the Tegus River. Here, magnificent monasteries and charming castles sit alongside modern museums and cutting-edge art, while a lively shopping scene and vibrant nightlife complete the urban tableau. All this is intersected by tramways, cobblestone lanes and tree-lined streets, making for an attractive and captivating destination that’s fast topping traveler’s wishlists.
DownTown Suites puts you right in the heart of it, occupying a prime spot in the city’s center, just a short
walk from the lift for the Castelo de São Jorge. Housed in a refurbished
18th-century building in the Pombaline quarter, it’s filled with loads of elegant charm by way of vintage and designer furniture sitting
alongside Portuguese pottery and paintings. The ground-floor bar serves
light bites, while a first-floor reading room makes an ideal space for a
bit of relaxing after a day spent exploring the city.
Rooms are sleek and modern, with wooden floors,
white walls and a neutral color palette. Each offers space enough for a
desk area, as well as an en-suite bathroom. Superior rooms are larger than Comfort rooms.
floor has its own Nespresso coffee machine, and you’ll find a relaxing
bar on the ground floor, serving light meals alongside drinks.
8 DownTown Suites is located in the Pombaline quarter, right in the center of Lisbon and near the
lift for the Castelo de São Jorge. The popular areas of Chiado, Palace
Square and Rossio Square are all just a short walk away.
How to Get There
We are so glad we booked this hotel. It’s in a perfect location to explore Lisbon.
The room (102) is a good size and is spotless. The bed is comfy. Fabulous.
We booked without breakfast but the little bistro is so cute we might add it to our bill!
Super convenient to anywhere. It’s really in the centre. Walking distance to most attractions. Rooms large n not noisy at all as past reviews I read. My room is facing to the front and we can sleep nicely.
Stayed for 3 nights with the wife. Just off the main tourist strip. Rooms were great, beds huge, staff very pleasant. Church bells close but only occasionally rang. Great central location for exploring Lisbon.
It’s not a grand looking residence externally but ideal in location and atmosphere. Staff helpful and friendly. Our room wasn’t huge but enough to keep us comfortable. Nice bed, big bathroom, and flat screen TV with many channels. We didn’t have to walk far to find nice restaurants. Breakfast is provided in the main entrance and I would say it was a bit hit and miss but it’s there anyway. Would I recommend? Yes.
We stayed here for a week in the beginning of July. Great location, really friendly helpful staff who take the time to give you recommendations for places to eat and visit. Room was HUGE and so beautiful. Can’t fault the place. We’ll see you next time we’re in Lisbon!
