              The hotel is in an ancient building right in the city center but totally renovated. It' all modern and brand new, a Mac computer and ipod docking station in each room!!! It's really comfortable! There is also a kitchenette in the room (but food is so good in Lisbon, you'll want to dine out every day:)) Staff very nice and helpful. Excellent!!!

              The room was not cleaned every day, one day they came to make it at 7pm. But it's just opened so maybe they still need to improve the organization.

              This is a very nice hotel and we could know because we stayed here for a week! We were friendly welkomed bij the personell at arrival. The people of the reception are friendly, helpfull and speak serveral languages (e.g. English, French etc) very well. We had a "small" room but it was quite big and really nice decoreated (if you like clean design). The beds were big and comfortable, the bathroom was nice, there was a fridge and a small kitchtenette which allowed us to cook. Moreover there was an imac with free internet connection so we never had to pay/wait for computers around the hotel. The location is superb; there is a metro station around the corner, 2 train stations within 5 minute walk, a taxi from the airport costs about 9 euro and its in the city centre so you can walk almost everything.

              When we arrived they just opened the hotel for 6 days so there were some startup problems such as a dripping airco, bathroomdoor which got stuck and there were construction wokers all over the hotel. However; all problems were fixed as soon as we mentioned it i think theses problems had to do with the start up of the hotel rather than the hotel itself.

            • Couple
              8.2

              We loved the stylish room, with its clean, contemporary design. Free wifi access is always great. The iPod docking station was a nice touch. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location, just a few minutes away from sightseeing and shopping areas, but still quiet.

              The room was not cleaned properly, especially not the bathroom. Also, it seems they didn't spend much on sound-proofing, since we could hear toilets flushing and people talking as if they were in our room.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              I liked the bed and the location. The computers were a nice extra.

              The bathroom isn't well laid out, it's awkward to use. The noise from the corridor and upstairs were very audible in the room.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Front desk staff were very helpful with suggestions on where to dine and reservations. Room is very well equipped - kitchenette, Apple Mac, i-Pod docking station, TV. Bed was very comfortable, quiet A/C and great blackout curtains. No outside noise. Great location downtown near excellent Brown's coffee shop (for breakfast), other restaurants, tourist attractions, shops and Metro.

              Strange to be asked for a 200 Euro deposit for "possible damage to room"! No shelf in shower so soap and shampoo end up on floor. If you put a computer in the room, it needs to have the latest software; I could only upload photos to Facebook one at a time and I couldn't install the Flash Player update required without admin priviledges. If you arrive by car, make sure you have good directions for the last 1Km. We went round in one-way circles because we kept missing the entry to the street.

              A great location in the heart of downtown just 100metres from metro plenty to do in day and night would go again

              The hotel is new so a few teething problems but finished to a high standard ,

            • Couple
              7.4

              Struttura nuovissima (inaugurata poco più di due settimane fa e ancora in costruzione), con camere dotate di angolo cottura, mac personale e stazione ipod, di design in pieno centro.

              We chose Brown's Downtown because they were selling such beautiful rooms for the same price as hotels of lower categories further away from the centre. Though the description fits reality, the hotel is still being finished (we could not use the lift on arrival) and I expected it to be more refined (though brand new, some furniture was scratched and had paint spots on) and to offer a better service. The staff was average friendly, except for a woman who was neither smiley, nor helpful (she once also forgot to order the room to be tidied up and towels to be changed, as per my request). Good on the whole, but I would rather say somewhat pretentious (design is not everything)...

            • Couple
              7.8

              very nice and cool design in the lobby and nice rooms but small

              as the hotel just opened construction was still going on, but they told us they won't start working before 10am when we checked in, which turned out to be not true the next morning at 8.15am. the lady at the front desk told us that the workers are not allowed to start earlier than 10 and she did not realise it that they start so early. what a joke! we could hear the noise in the lobby while talking to her. however we stayed only one night and the price of 75€ was fair.

            • Couple
              4.6

              Right in the city, and rooms well decorated.

              Hotel was still under construction on our arrival. We had a rather weird smell in the bathroom.. And no internet while we had a Apple computer in the room.. No parking in the hotel! So, that costs you an extra 40 or 45 eur per night!!

            • Family with children
              9.2

              Great design, great location. Overall very happy with our choice.

              A heavy sewer smell coming from the bathroom. Would have been nice to have a breakfast option.

              Hotel was in a perfect location, staff were very friendly and the room was excellent, it even had its own computer with free internet access and an i-pod dock.

              Just one thing there is no bar in the hotel but there are so many places around this didn't really bother us

            • Couple
              7.8

              The hotel is in a great location, right in the heart of downtown Lisbon. The rooms are fitted with wifi and an iMac, which is a nice touch. There is also a kitchenette, which would be handy for longer stays.

              Some things seemed either unfinished or completed in a hurry and detracted from the trendy style they are aiming for. The shower in our room leaked. The hotel is also poorly insulated, and thus very noisy. Our stay wasn't as relaxing as we had hoped.

              The position of this hotel is excellent, smack in the middle of the area of baixia, well serviced by the fantastic public transport. Lots of tours for the first time visitor.The hotel is very laid back, nothing too much trouble for staff, the staff not in your face, but helpful when approached about anything

              The vending machine could offer more. There is no denying that the rooms are lacking in floor space, particularly the shower room. Could be noisy if the guests were noisy, we were lucky, all guests respected the need to be quiet late at night

              The people who work in this hotel are fabulous especially Mariana, the manager. When we had a problem she made sure that it was taken care of. The design elements of the hotel were beautifully done and the addition of a Mac in each room is a great plus.

              This is a brand new hotel and they are still dealing with small issues, but this is a great location at a great price. However even though the hotel has wonderful design and good quality fixtures in the room, the rooms and the bathrooms are very small (we were in a large double room) and there isn't much storage space. As long as the price remains reasonable, this is a really great choice. The only thing I would correct immediately is that I would add phones in the rooms. A computer is a great tool but the internet service wasn't reliable in Lisbon, and it is kind of a pain to go to the desk every time you need something, or to ask a question.
