Pensão Imperial

Guesthouse in Baixa & Rossio

Moody Imperial has a terrific location in Rossio, but you’ll need to grin and lug it like everyone else since 1895 – there’s no lift here. The rooms with high ceilings and wooden furniture are nothing flash, but some have flower-draped balconies overlooking the praça. Bathrooms are shared, though some rooms have a shower or sink. The unaffiliated downstairs restaurant, Pinóquio, is a classic.

Enter through the Alfazema de Lisboa shop. The hotel was scheduled to have moved to a new location on Rossio by October 2018.
