Great stay
We were looking for a place to stay that wasn’t too expensive as Lisboa can quite pricey, this hotel is very near everything amd walking distance to everything you need, loved it.

3 days in Lisboa
Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Walkable to tourist area, safe. We were in a suite which was very spacious. While parking is very limited we had no issues any of the 3 days we stayed. It is on a hill, if someone has limited mobility is something to consider or just Uber it.

Great hotel, great location
The hotel was great, although I wish we had been allowed more than one coffee at the included breakfast...
BETHANY, us2 night business trip

A lovely personal hotel
We had the room "at the top", a lovely suite that cost a little more but gave us a lot of extra room. Our bedroom at the back was quiet and had a great view over the city, the lounge area was well furnished and comfortable and the bathroom generous and well equipped. We could open the windows, which was usually plenty to keep the area cool but the air conditioner was also efficient if needed. The patio overlooking the street was great for that end-of-day wine. The Manager is a fund of knowledge on the history of both the city and the country. Breakfast was good with service quick and comprehensive. The only consideration is that, if you plan on walking up to the hotel with your luggage, as we did, the route from the Avenida metro station to the hotel takes only 15 minutes but is gently uphill. Without luggage this is not a problem and the hotel is within easy walking distance of most places. We would happily stay there again.

Would visit again.
Nice place with good service and a really lovely cooked breakfast! The rooms look nicer in reality and the bathroom was huge and nicely appointed.

Glad I chose this hotel.
Hotel Principe Real on Alegria was welcoming and perfect for my trip. My room was spacious, very comfortable bed, lovely bathroom with good shower/bath. Friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was good - you order from a menu but as the hours are 7am - noon - it makes sense they dont do buffet style except for the Pastel de Nates - those little custard tarts! The hotel is on a hill..but i soon got used to running up and down and i was literally 7 mins from Avenida de Liberdade - and going up hill v close to botanical gardens. I would definately stay there again.

Wonderful and courteous staff. Fine breakfast and hotel is close to train station and heart of Lisbon. Very nice room and front desk gave us a room early morning after arriving from airport so we could relax in the room after long flight. Only downside as hotel is in an area where buildings are being renovated so at times there was a bit of noise but not enough to deter you from staying here.

Great Hotel - deserves its four star rating
It is true that this hotel is situated on a hill between two vibrant Lisbon neighbourhoods. After spending the day sight-seeing, the walk home was a bit tiring. That said, at night, I climbed the rest of the hill to a marvellous group of bars and restaurants which meant a downhill walk before I went to sleep. I had a very comfortable room with a great bathroom (including a bidet). The air conditioning worked well and there were blackout shutters which could be deployed to make sure the sun did not wake me too early in the morning. Rather than offer a breakfast buffet, you choose the breakfast items you want and they are cooked to order for you! I enjoyed the freshly squeezed orange juice and a croissant with my scrambled eggs and bacon. Staff at the check-in desk helped answer many of my sightseeing questions. Be prepared that Lisbon is not exactly a walking city - you will need to use public transportation to reach all the sights you will want to see. Still, this hotel is close to a Metro stop (Avenida) and a local train station (Rossio). Within a day, I came to realize I had made a great choice of a location to base my weeklong stay in Lisbon! The only downside is that there is a nearby building which is being renovated. On workdays, construction began promptly at 8:00 am and I could hear them through the blackout shutters. Still, that was about when I wanted to start my day to maximize my sightseeing time. It wasn't much of a hardship and not the hotel's fault!

Wonderful staff - generally friendly and always helpful. One in particular offered fantastic local advice and recommendations of what to see and do. Breakfast was excellent - generous, cooked to order and available until midday. The hotel generally was a little run down with some fixtures and fittings visibly old, but everything did seem basically clean. Area is great, walking distance from some fantastic views, food and drink venues, gardens and galleries. The only real negative to comment was the building site directly next door to the hotel, which is really very loud. We know this isn't the hotel's fault, and they did apologise, but heavy duty drilling and hammering etc. from 8am until 6pm Mon-Fri (plus quieter work on Saturday) was quite a lot to bear while on holiday!
