Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Welcome to Hotel Convento do Salvador. Located in the heart of Alfama, one of Lisbon's most legendary neighbourhoods, the Hotel is just steps away from the city's main tourist attractions: St. George's Castle, Sé Cathedral, traditional bars and restaurants, Fado houses, down-town Lisbon and Praça de Comércio, museums, belvederes, the famous no. 28 tram which passes right outside the door of the Hotel. Hotel Convento do Salvador is an innovative socio-economic project which sets out to support the cultural activities of the Centro Convento do Salvador, geared towards children and youths, and operating in the same building. The services offered by the Hotel, namely the organisation of meetings and events, are a result of a liaison with this Youth Centre, which has different types of venues and equipment at its disposal. A display of artworks by some of the most renowned Portuguese contemporary artists may be viewed throughout the Hotel, in both common and private areas.

Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.

Only had one night here on this trip through Lisbon sadly but this little hotel is lovely. Great location in the Alfama area with plenty to explore in the area and beyond. I walk everywhere and this suits me but there are hills galore in this area. The hotel is crisp, clean

Former convent hotel in a good location in Alfama. Very quaint due to what it was. Hilly area, you need to be prepared with footwear and fitness. Rooms are extremely small for two people. If you don’t mind stepping over each other. Very clean, nice staff. I liked stay but

This is a very modern hotel which sits adjacent to a steep, cobbled lovely old winding alleyway. The decor inside is modern, fresh and clean. The rooms sold with a river view have an obscured view of the river but the outlook is pleasant. I have read reviews saying the rooms

Spent three nights in this hotel. Would absolutely return. Well located, very good wifi, excellent breakfast, and an incredibly helpful staff. Hotel is modern, clean and beds are very comfortable. A tram runs along one side of the property. Not something that bothered me.

From the airport the best way would be a taxi (aprox. 12 euros). Most taxis will know where it is, ask them to drop you off in front of the hotel, not at top of street. Bear in mind that If you call in the taxi it will cost you a bit extra than just stopping on from the street (1 or 2 euros) and if you have many bags that will cost you extra too (again, 1 or 2 euros extra, not too much).

We started our Portugal roadtrip from Lisbon. Flew into Lisbon, a few days there, and then picked up the rental car from Avis. I think there’s plenty of rental car companies near the city center. Or have a cab drop you off the the rental company, taxi’s aren’t too expensive in Lisbon. Navigating Lisbon is fine, as long as you’re used to inner city driving. Portuguese drive fast, so don’t hog the left lane for too long unless you can keep up with them, but they aren’t as rude or “arrogant” as drivers in, say, drivers in France for example, so you should be fine. Have a great trip!

Definitely take a taxi - to easy to get turned around in the streets.

Sorry for the late answer, I did not notice having received a question. I do not know the sizes of the rooms you asked about as we had a double room, but at least that one was smaller than usual

"All the rooms are quiet as its in a no car zone."
"Rooms on the 2nd Floor"
"I just booked 2 double rooms, each for single occupancy. I could not have asked for anything better than what I got."
"we had a 2 story room overlooking the courtyard which was quiet and peaceful"
"Call ahead of arrival so they can tell you or the driver how to access the street."
