Art deco here...not perfection. 4 Stars at best. In my experience, there are no amazing, awesome 5 star hotels in Lisbon. Here's what Britania does well.... a helpful staff, quick check in, reasonable rates, clean rooms, a nice afternoon tea with complimentary Port and Ginginha. In my opinion, here are the drawbacks, after two days, the routine breakfast gets boring,...

Perfect combination of location, room size, ambiance. Hotel puts on a free evening tea and cakes and port in the dining room that also serves as a library. Just a really wonderful place, great staff. First rate in every way!

This was the second time staying at the Hotel Britania. My friend and I had stayed here 2 years ago and had a wonderful experience so decided to book here again on a short stay in Lisbon enroute to Tavira. It did not disappoint the second time around. The location is great with a 10 minute walk into the city...

This hotel is just lovely,even if it isn't as central as we might have preferred. The walk into the city is fine in the morning but you might need a taxi in the evenings. Luckily the restaurant along the street is a perfect spot for a light dinner. The staff were very helpful too with travel and dining recommendations. We...

The staff at the Britania is second to none. Friendly, helpful, caring, and efficient. The size of the room and bathroom were not typical European, good sized. The breakfast was very good and the bar had a very nice selection. The location was excellent. Shops, services, and restaurants all in an easy walk. Our only issue with the hotel itself...

This small, well located hotel was lovingly restored five years ago, and it is clear that the staff is proud of it. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we were part of a family. (But our family never treated us as well as we were treated by Victor and Carlotta at the front desk and Marco on the...

On a side street a block off Avenue Liberdade, the Britania is calm, cool, and collected. An oasis after visiting the wonderful neighborhoods, sights, and restaurants of Lisbon. An exceptionally friendly and professional staff greets you and suggests tea or port in the library, a lovely room to meet with friends, play a game, or quietly read the newspapers. Otherwise,...

This hotel is located on a quiet side street, just around the corner of the main drag Avenida Libertade, you basically in walking distance to everything, and walk we did. Once you enter the hotel, it feels like you have stepped back in time as they have kept lots of the original ambience. Our room was very spacious (rarely you...

Small hotel well located near one of lisbons main boulevards. The staff went out of their way to be informative and helpful. Rooms were comfortable, service excellent and breakfast was generous. It made our stay in Lisbon so pleasant.
