This nice "pensão" is very well situated and just a few metres away from Praça dos Restauradores (some bus stops there, some of them, for the Airport), Praça Rossio and Rossio Railway Station.
There are many restaurants along the street but the hotel is at the end of it, so, much less noisy that it could be expected (or not noisy at all).
Single room, B&B: 40,00 € (Jun. '09).
Directions: - Metro: Restauradores (Blue line) and Rossio (green line).

The room was small, but clean. Very quiet location although almost in the city centre.
Breakfast was the same all 6 days, but good - salami,cheese,marmalade,butter,2 sorts of cereals, jogurt,coffee,tea,milk.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Directions: Only 5 min from Rossio square.
Rossio metro station on Green line or Restauradores metro station on Blue line.
We stayed here in November 2007. We booked this hotel on spec, thinking it sounded reasonable. We were especially attracted to it as Skoosh was offering a very good deal (3 nights for the price of 2).
We were delighted with all aspects. Its location is extremely good for both walking and catching city transport, it's just minutes walk from the bus and tram terminal in Praca Da Figueira. To reach it from the airport is an easy 3 Euro ride on the 91 city link bus, get off at Restauradores and cross over the square, go down the side road by the Hard Rock Cafe and turn right, it's on the right next door to the Theatro Rivoli; two minutes walk from the bus stop.
The hotel seems to have had a recent update, all the public areas are clean and bright. The staff that we encountered were pleasant and helpful, enduring our attempts at speaking Portuguese, but they spoke good English.
The room we had (408) was also clean and well furnished with two comfortable beds and a TV and AC. It has a large (2.5m x 2.5m) bright bathroom with bath/shower, plenty of towels even a hair-dryer, everything you'd need. We asked for a quiet room, 408 is on the back with no view but it was extremely quiet all night. Those on the front overlook the pedestrianised street where you can watch the world go by but it's not a particularly interesting part of the street and the rooms do suffer from the noise of early morning rubbish/bottle collections as well as the "normal" city street sounds.
If you carry a laptop there is FREE wifi connection, if not there is a computer in the public lounge that you can use, I think there's a charge for this.
The breakfast, which was included, was good; limited in the range of items but not in the quality or quantity, you can fill up with as much as you can eat of fresh bread rolls, meat/cheese, jam, cereal, fruit juice and tea/coffee/chocolate.
All in all a good well priced hotel (We'd even have been happy to pay for every night), with a practical location, highly recommended.
Unique Quality: Very practical location.
Clean and quiet (on the back).
Large well equipped bathroom.
Free wifi connection.
Directions: From airport get off bus at Restauradores, cross over and go down the road by Hard Rock Cafe, turn right, it's on the right; less than two minutes from the bus stop.
From Rossio walk to the right of Teatro Maria II, it's up that street on the right.
Well situated along a main tourist street lined with restaurants behind the Restauradores Plaza and metro station. Clean rooms and nice, big, marbled bathroom. Excellent startpoint for prowling for food at strange hours. Within walking distance to Rossio Square where it's a buzz of activities as well.
Breakfast is in a quaint room decorated with tiles and paintings (pointilism) of Lisbon. The steward is conscientious and makes sure food is well stocked and tables cleared quickly.
Directions: From Restauradores metro, look for slope leading down towards backstreet.
The location is wonderful, it's in the city center and you can reach everything by foot.
The hotel is very humble, but clean and friendly.
It's not far from Rossio and Restauradores (underground), if you're travelling by plane, take a City Bus from the airport (do not travel by taxi), it costs something like 2Euros, and the ticket entitles you to travel all day long on all means of transport!
Unique Quality: Excellent location and good rates.
I would recommend, it is central to the most important sites of Lisbon, as well as metro and buses to the airport. The rooms are tiny though, but efficient and clean. The people who work the front desk are courteous and helpful. Prices should be about 50 euro per night.
Consider a stay at a Pension in Lisbon also, they are cheap and run efficiently from what we saw. They are all over Lisbon and run typically by women.
Directions: Pedestrian Street behind Square
Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Residencial Florescente in Lisbon 5 nights. It is the best hotel if you want a simple, but clean room with bathroom, tv and aircondition in the middle of downtown Lisbon!
Unique Quality: Location, location, location! You can walk everywhere.
This is a nice, clean place right in the heart of Baixa. It is right near Praca dos Restauradores and Av. da Liberdade.
The street where it's located is the Fine Arts region of town. Musicals, ballets, operas are all shown here.
The rooms are moderately sized with clean private baths. Tv, air, hairdryers all included.
Breakfast is included, although it is mainly just bread, meats, cheese, cereal, coffee, juices, milk
It's not the cheapest around, but you get what you pay for.
The staff is also very friendly and helpful
Unique Quality: nice flowers in front of the building, some rooms have nice views
Directions: from Restauradores, the street is one block east, directly parallel
Unique Quality: This was to be my weekend pension if I had to checkout of my usual place. The centre of the restaurant street at the Restauradores end of Rua Augusta (rua Portas). Smart clean rooms and good security.(they wouldn't let anybody just walk in).
Lisbon has several pensions around its main squares. Two good choices are Residencial Florescente on a street parallel to Restauradores Square, and Residencial Saldanha by Saldanha Square.
I'm plan on going to Lisboa for a week or so in mid October.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a cheap place to stay? Are there any pension-styled places where you can stay in someone's house?
there are many places in Lisboa called "residencia"- it's stg. between hostel and pension- mostly private... you can see the boards or notices in the city... they are everywhere and on reasonable prices... (even in the centre)... so not expect 5-star hotel but most of residencias are quite nice...
enjoy one of my favourite cities!!!
