    Boutique Hotel, Ideal City Location

    A true boutique hotel, in the heart of the Old Town, near to the famous Alfama district, easy walking distance of shops, bars, restaurants and attractions. This is a modern hotel, with minimalist layout ideal for short city breaks (there is limited storage space for longer trips), the hotel is lovely with an outdoor terrace and views of parts of the city from the upper terrace area and some rooms. Great service from the Esquina team, who gave us lots of local advice on food and places to visit, which was really appreciated. Great hotel for couples seeking something a little different, the superior rooms are very large with lots of bathroom space and floor area in the bedroom. Highly recommended, I would love to visit again in future

    Amazing location, friendly staff, but small room

    My close friend and I stayed at the Esqina Urban Lodge for 3 nights. The staff emailed us ahead of time to ask if we had any questions or needed transportation from the airport. So lovely! The location was amazing; just what we wanted. It was right in downtown Lisbon, in walking distance to just about anything you could want; restaurants, sights, trains, bus stops, the castle etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only negatives about Esqina were the terrible sink faucets that were so hard to turn on and off. Also, the room was very small, and there was no real bathroom; just a toilet with a glass door on one side and a shower on the other side of the hall. It was fine for my friend and I, as we are super comfortable with one another, but just be aware!

    The property is located next to a metro station. There are plenty of nightlife around and you can grab some tasty brekkie in the pastry shop right bellow it

    good location. Close to the metro so getting there with baggage was an easy walk. Corner position overlooking popular walkway with plenty of options for eating. Would recommend to anyone with a stay in Lisbon.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Charming old building with modern rooms, downtown in a lively part of central Lisbon, but a block from the noisiest area, so that by 10pm it was actually very quiet. Fantastic base to explore the city by foot or transit (metro and bus a few blocks away, as well as many elevators to upper hill areas — the famous fancy one too, but that is just a tourist site, not a practical choice). Rooms are snug but comfortable, and you can buy food and keep it in their shared lounge, which has a fridge and tables. Enormous number of great nearby restaurants, including breakfast options (the hotel doesn’t serve breakfast). One small nit: the shower in our room had a glass door that swing in, not out. Quite hard to squeeze in, and if someone needed help I don’t see how you could get to them without removing the door (which would not be hard to do, if it came to that). But they should fix the hinges to let the door swing out, which would be an easy thing for their handyman to do. Otherwise, while the room was cozy, we didn’t feel that it was unreasonably small given the location.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointing and overpriced

    I never leave reviews, but felt compelled to say something here. This was an extremely disappointing hotel and it should not be ranked at 4 stars. Two stars or 2.5 would be more appropriate. Let me start out by saying that I thought the staff was very kind and helpful. I was extremely disappointed with the room, especially for the price. When I booked the hotel, I was expecting a 4 star place. I've traveled to Europe multiple times and I'm aware that European lodging is typically much smaller than in the U.S. The room was incredibly small for the price and the shower had no door, which was not convenient as I was traveling with dad. The bathroom was one of the smallest I've ever experienced and could barely step inside and shut the door.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Noisy. Low quality but not cheap hotel.

    Do not expect 4 star hotel quality. I don’t know whether this can be called as hotel either. It seems like they renovated only rooms of what used to be youth hostel. The room is noisy - understandable the noise from outside considering amazing location but louder from inside. The rooms are facing close to the staircase and you can hear everyone’s step, chats etc. There is no proper reception. I was quite shocked when I first arrived, they placed a table and university student like staff (1 staff only) for everything except for cleaning. Also, the rooms can be VERY small - I had to ask to change the room because I could not even open my suitcase. I cannot recommend this place to anyone who wants decently comfortable stay.
