Nice place to stay

Posted Aug 21, 2016 on Orbitz
This hotel was good for us for one night. Located only 10 minutes walk from the square. Great rooftop terrace overlooking the city. This is more like a hostel, but definitely suited our needs. Very clean and friendly staff.

Pros: Clean hotel, modern, nice staff

Good location. Top of steep hill though. Wi fi a bit dodgy. No hot water last morning. Lovely building and layout.

Great location , friendly and affordable

Pros: The location. The friendliness of the staff.
Cons: The water in the shower was hard to regulate to get a warm temperature (hot and cold not mixing well and sending shots of heat or cold too frequently)
Location: Excellent location to explore the non commercial downtown Lisbonne on foot. Close to street cars and tramway lines.
The hotel is very well located, on a hill, within walking distance to many areas of interest. It is small, does not have an elevator, and is old. The terrace offers a great view of Lisbonne. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are simple, but kept very clean, and the bathrooms are modern and clean too. Breakfast is additional , but we had plenty to eat for 5 euros. The neighborhood is very typical Portuguese, colorful and friendly, with cobbled sidewalks and streets. Several very small restaurants are further down the street and serve locals as much as tourists. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience Lisbonne fully.

Very nice stay at Lavra. Note that reception opens at 8am (we arrived on an overnight bus and had to wait an hour) and there is no lift. The terrace is lovely and the wifi is specific to all floors (which is nice). Staff was very responsive to all our inquiries.

Wouldn't recommend.

The hotel staff were available and could answer most questions. The hotel location was pretty terrible. It was hard to find and it was up a long steap, winding road so it took a long time to find and drag our bags up. There is no elevator so we had to carry our bags up and down 80 steps to our room and when we got there, our air conditioning wasn't working properly and there were no other rooms. I mainly rated this hotel low due to the lack of air conditioning and the less desirable neightborhood. On a plus, there was a nice view and it wasn't far from the major roads.

Lavra Guest House is very close to main tourist attractions so location is great. Though it's on a hilly street, we loved that there are restaurants and a convenience store just a few steps away. The bathroom is very spacious which is good, but perhaps add a bench or a small table so guests have a place to put toiletries on. The glass shelf by the sink didn't do much justice as it wasn't level so things kept falling off. Other than that, it's a good place to stay after a long day of doing touristy activities. Staff was very helpful!!! Myriam, Paulo, and Peter were all very accommodating!
