50th birthday treat

Hotel Britania is on an ordinary looking street but is another world when you walk through the door. Wonderful, warm, friendly staff, an Art Deco dream - rooms are a delight and the library where breakfast is served is a joy. Only negative would be that the air con wouldn't allow us to heat the room a bit which would have been good. I took my girlfriend for a 50th birthday treat and it was a special trip. We spent our days walking around Lisbon and drinking coffee in many lovely cafes. The backstreets near the hotel contained some wonderful antique shops and we found a couple of superb, cheap restaurants run by extremely friendly people less than a two minute walk from the hotel. We would love to return to Lisbon and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else but the Hotel Britania!

Fabulous

We loved this hotel.The staff were so friendly and helpful.The room was amazing.Beds very comfortable. Decor beautiful. Tea/coffee making facilities are always great.Loved it even more because it was art deco! Very good location as we got a bus from the airport which dropped us just around the corner.Close enough to the city centre but not too close to be noisy etc. Would recommend to anyone☺

Excellent break

We arrived very early in the morning and were given coffee and allowed to check in within an hour of arrival, when the day staff could be contacted. This made all the difference to the day as we got some sleep before heading out to town. The hotel is a pleasant 10 minute walk from where the main bus routes to the sights start. It is also very conveniently located near Avenida metro station. We bought the 72 hour Lisbon card and made full use of it, even using it back to the airport. The breakfast was very good and hot, unlike in some places. it was also regularly replenished with things like fruit salad and the custard tarts that are a Lisbon speciality. There was also bacon and eggs etc. A big bonus was there was an excellent bistro restaurant just up the road called Rubro which did an excellent seafood in black ink. the staff were really helpful with local knowledge of bus and metro routes and Fado. I also liked the art deco and old fashioned touches. Definitely an adults hotel

Few local restaurants - turn left out of hotel not right to the touristy areas. Recommend Rissoto and a Gin and Burger bar opposite Santa Marta hospital, both excellent.
