This small, unpretentious and very well located local hotel is ideal for those on a tight budget or who don't want to spend all their money on a hotel room.
The Botanico is located close to the Praça dos Restauradores, alongside the botanical garden, and Lisbon city centre is just a 10-minute walk away.
The Botanico hotel dates back to the 1960s but was renovated in 2006/2007. This small 5-storey building stands in a pleasant working-class district of the city and has around thirty guest rooms. The reception staff speak French. The lobby includes a lounge area with television and newspapers and a small bar serving a selection of snacks and juices. Complimentary orange juice and water is provided in the lobby throughout the day. Internet access is also available.
The 30 rooms are simply and unpretentiously decorated but have everything you need, including a flat-screen television, air-conditioning, a telephone, a mini-bar, a CD player and a safe. The Formica furniture is reminiscent of the 60s, which can have a certain charm, and it is worth remembering that the rooms on the 5th floor are smaller than the others. You may be interested to know that room 55, on the corner of the building, is listed in the Michelin Guide as it has magnificent views of Lisbon. The bathrooms are small and have a shower and hospitality products, though half of the rooms also have a bathtub.
Breakfast is served as a buffet in the breakfast room on the floor below the lobby. The surroundings are unpretentious and rather lacking in the charm department and the decor consists of just a few pictures hanging on the walls.
