Pousada De Lisboa Review

I stayed at the Pousada de Lisboa – Terreiro do Paço Hotel for 1 nights and did a video review of the hotel common areas and a king bed room.

If you’d like to see what the what the hotel and room looks like then check out the video here:

Newly opened in June 2015, the Pousada De Lisboa occupies the former Ministry of Internal Affairs building located centrally on the Praça do Comércio, a historic part of the city of Lisbon. The hotel is located just across the plaza from the Terreiro do Paço Subway station.

This could probably be considered a “boutique” hotel with only 90 rooms on four floors. The hotel definitely has a “renovated Old World” feel to it. The hotel is filled with Statues, Stained Glass, and made-to-look-old furniture. Although the building is old, everything, and I mean everything, is new inside.

The hotel has an interesting entrance… there are basically three doors… one door in front that goes up to flights of stairs, one door to the right that goes to the restaurant/bar, and the door to the left that goes to the check-in area. The check-in area is composed of two “sit-down” desks. You sit down at one of the two chairs at the desk while checking in.

The hotel swimming pool is located indoors on the third floor of the hotel. There is also a small gym, and a sauna adjacent to the pool. The fourth floor has a terrace/sundeck that is accessible from the pool.

I stayed in a classic room (the least expensive), as they had a 20% off promotion going during their first week of being open on the classic rooms. Our room was on the 4th floor which had a balcony door that opened up to that shared terrace. The room was a decent size for central Lisbon. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning was cold, and the room was quiet. The most interesting part of the room was the “glass box” that is the bathroom. The bathroom has a glass wall with a curtain on the outside. So I guess if you’re by yourself you can open up the curtain, and not feel claustrophobic in the bathroom. I had this “glass bathroom wall” in another hotel in Portugal, so maybe it’s not that odd for this region.
