"Great river view"
Overall I am very satisfied with the guesthouse. It is located in the pretty neighborhood of Alfama where you can find a variety of less touristic bars and restaurants. The amenity of the guesthouse is rather on the side of minimalism but that is what I expected and there is nothing to complain about. The breakfast was sufficient, and when I was staying […] there a staff member kindly baked delicious custard cake for the guests. Always one or two staff were available for my needs for 24 hours. It is a very nice asset of this guesthouse, since many other places like this set curfew or simply no staff is available oftentimes. My room on the river side had a fantastic view, and if you are planning to stay there, I recommend you choose a room with river view. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location to Apolonia Station/Alfama"
Looks (from the outside) aren't everything. Interiors are smart, modern, clean and welcoming. Wonderful views of the river! Near Rua Remedios in the Alfama where Fado happens, as well as within walking distance of river and central Placa. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast good. Elevator (small, but sufficient) to top floor for entry...signage […] isn't so good in letting you know where to go, and the hall is completely without light at night. You can share a bath or have a private bath, price is a little more for latter. Try the Tapas place around the corner...amazing calamari! Be warned, it's a steep, heart-stopping climb from Apolonia Station. But we'd go back in a MINUTE!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, nice guesthouse"
Last night of our week in portugal and sweet lisbon guesthouse ended our holiday in style. Don't be fooled by the dark office building like entrance, this guesthouse is a haven in the centre of old town lisbon.Genuine Expedia guest review
Très très bon séjour! Vraiment un super rapport qualité-prix.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bra på alle måter, men savnet eget bad"
Hyggelig hotell, betjening og god verdi for prisen for dem som ikke trenger eget bad. God beliggenhet med kort avstand til Fado-restauranter og sentrum for øvrig.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Definitely recommended - if I return to Lisbon I would stay there again!"

We had to move our booking at very short notice and it was no problem at all - the staff were really happy to help us. The location is great, very central and close to a main train station. It is a very relaxed, friendly place to stay, plenty of breakfast, with cake, tea and coffee available at all times for a quick snack. Really clean and spacious rooms. The bed was huge and very comfortable and we had a great view over the river. It is very good value for money and I can't really think of any criticism aside from a restaurant nearby being a bit noisy on one night . The staff let us leave our bags with them after we checked out while we enjoyed out last day and when we returned to collected them they offered us the use of a shower to freshen up before we set off for the airport! Fab service!
"Great affordable place"
Spent 3 nights in the guesthouse and it was very enjoyable! The staff are super helpful and are always available to cater to your every need. They offered a great bfast in the morning to start your day and ensured you always had enough! The security features are excellent and the neighborhood is very centralized to all the major attractions and fine Portuguese cuisine. Great view of the river in the Ovos suite but a little loud in the evening only if your window is open...ie: barking dogs, bus station...etc! (Like any major city in the downtown core) But it is well worth it!
"Very very nice"

The hotel was very nice and well situated, you can walk or take the metro. The room was clean and quiet, with a superb view on the Tagus river. The ambience was really friendly, you felt like at home. The breakfast was of a good quality and you had a lot of choice. The staff was really enjoyable, Pedro was really very helpful and fantastic, always smiling. It's a place I recommend and where certainly I will come back in a next trip to Lisbon.
"Comfortable and reasonable stay in Lisbon"

We spent four days in this excellent guesthouse. All the staff were great, nothing was too much trouble for them. It was a real pleasure to stay here. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. There was plenty of hot water for use in the bathroom at all times. Our room gave views over the Tagus, including vast cruise liners moored up for their stay; they lit our room up at night! Very convenient for Santa Apolonia railway station in the square at the bottom of the hill. Handy for metro links around the city. Since our previous visit to Lisbon in May 2009, the red metro line has been extended to the airport. We used this section for our return flight. Would recommend this guest house to anyone wishing to visit Lisbon, without being exorbitant. Venicefan75 Wales
"Nice, friendly guesthouse"

The first impression (especially at night) is not good. You enter a dark, dingy foyer and take a rickety old elevator up to the guesthouse. However once inside the the guesthouse the staff greet you warmly (and in English). The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast buffet has an array of bread, meat, cheeses, fruit, cereal, juice etc. One minor complaint is the coffee is not very good - they could spend a bit more on better coffee. The staff were very helpful, even washing our clothes which had honey spilled on them during transit. Overall we highly recommend the Sweet Lisbon Guesthouse.

We stayed here for 4 nights in April. The room was very nice...large, nice bathrrom a king-like bed, and a great view of the river from our window. It also has a nice kitchen and a "living room" you could spend time in. The staff was very helpful and answered all questions...we also learned a bit about the current political climate of Portugal here. The downside of the river view are old windows = a bit of noise at night. The first two nights were great, but for some reason there was a lot going on the last two, and we heard it all, until about 3;00 A.M. We found the street it was on easily enough, but all they have is a 8 x 11 black and white copy that says "Sweet Lisbon" in a nondescript door to let you know it's a hotel. It might be best to say "next to the Faz restaurant".and to let people know it does not look like a hotel. As noted, the location was great. Bus, metro, and sights just minutes away, and a nice location in old Alfama.

Fantastic guesthouse, well located in the old quarter of Alfama; every room has a beautiful view on the river. The staff is very friendly and ready to help. Room, kitchen and bathroom are very clean. Near to the train station, metro and fado clubs! We highly recommend this guesthouse.

It's quite difficult to find the place. The Guesthouse is so beautiful, the staff is very friendly and the rooms very clean. We stay in a room with a nice view from the river. I really enjoy this place and when I come back I would stay here again.
