The Independente Hostel & Suites, Lisbon
More shabby than chic
Stayed for holiday one night. Hotel looked chic and stylish online but was more shabby and dirty. Would not recommended for couples getting away together but probably a cool hostel for solo travellers. Breakfast with the suite was on a rooftopnterrace with stunning view. Lived the awesome woman helpin us with the breakfast buffet. Sadly this breakfast was the only thing we liked during our stay.

Good but minor improvements would make it great!
The place itself was a beautiful old building, renovated just enough to make it comfortable without spoiling its rustic charm. we enjoyed the old fashioned elevators, although the nature of these meant we had to take the stairs to the third floor from time to time if someone had forgotten to close one of the doors. A consideration for those who have mobility issues. We stayed in a superior suite on the third floor. Our room had a semi-private roof terrace with an amazing view over Lisbon and was spacious with all the furniture necessary to make it home for a few days. It was very dark, which was perfect for a light sleeper like me. There are building works in the square opposite, so take earplugs or ask for a room at the back of the hotel if these are likely to bother you. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast on the terrace was the perfect start to the day, sheltered with a light breeze blowing through and great views over Lisbon. The food was tasty and Lourdes very welcoming! The location is good, just a short walk into the centre or to transport links. It's very close to the lively Bairro Alto if bar-hopping is your thing. My only complaint is about the bedding and towels. The pillows in particular were very cheap and not especially comfortable. The bed linen was clean but not great quality, and the towels were thin and only one per person. For the price I paid I had expected these fundamental items to be of a much higher quality.
