The York House Lisbon is located at only 10 minutes from Lisbon downtown, in Janelas Verdes Street, close to the Ancient Art National Museum and to the Lapa district.
"Quiet retreat in busy Lisbon"
This hotel is a beautiful, comfortable oasis in busy downtown Lisbon. Unassuming from the street, you climb the stairs to enter a courtyard oasis surrounded by beautifully appointed (not modern) rooms. The staff is friendly and exceedingly helpful (especially with your bags up and down the stairs). And their restaurant is fantastic. We ate there the first night because we were travel weary and didn't want to go out. Our meal was so good and service so friendly we decided to have a second dinner there out of our three nights in Lisbon. Definitely a place we would go back to. Ask for room 411, our two level room with a full living room downstairs, a private patio and a view of the river from the upstairs bedroom.
"Charming and friendly boutique hotel"
The Your House has comfortable rooms, good food, and a beautiful terrace hidden away from street noise. Lush trees and vines and flowers provide beauty and shade. The staff are all friendly and welcoming. The neighborhood is worth exploring, even though it's a bit out of the way. About equidistant from Belem and from the Alfama. Strong and free wifi. In years past I've been to small conferences at the York House; they have good meeting space for ten to fifteen people.
"Portugal sojourn "
Unfortunately the area around York House is being renovated and there is rubbish and graffiti and building going on all around. There is steep uneven steps up to the hotel and a "strong man" comes to carry your bags. Up top is a lovely terrace where you can relax and have snacks or drinks and beautiful meals. The staff are always helpful and deserve much praise. I found the room a small for a 4 star hotel but there is a nice lounge and free port and delicious custard tarts. The cleaning service is very good.
"Overall pleasant "
For sure a great past and it could still be a fantastic place , but it would require the intervention of some smart interior decorator in order to give a new and fancier look . The location is quite interesting . It is an area of Lisbon not very central but which is rapidly coming back up . Several new things around like LX factory , Ribeiro market , new fancy buildings and a great museum next door The York House deserves to restore its old glory . Management is , at the end , quite friendly , but they need to be understood . First impression it is not necessarily very warm. Rooms have everything you need . They have been recently half redecorated but something is missing . Nothing to give you the feeling of an interesting place as you nowadays like to experience .
"Historic and charming"
Within easy walking distance to downtown, River Ferry and Train to Cascais and Estoril. Good Choice to have a Calm and beautiful Place to relax. Very friendly staff and very well done restauration of the old monestary.
