Pensao Residencial Ninho das Águias, Lisbon

I recently stayed at the Pensao Residencial Ninho das Águias (i.e., "Eagle’s Nest") in Lisbon's Alfama district, not far from the Castle of São Jorge. It is in a very convenient location, perched just above the city center, and offers wonderful views of Lisbon.

The Ninho das Águias is up a very steep hill, so is probably not the first choice for those not in great physical shape, but, on the other hand, it is easily accessible by tram (no. 16) or bus (no.37), from which stops it is only a short walk.

Equally challenging is the huge spiral staircase that has to be scaled immediately upon entering from the street, but once you’ve climbed them you are in a cozy little accommodation, below which the city lies spread out, making it very much an "eagle's nest" of a place to stay.

The amenities are limited, just a bed and wash facilities (no toilet in the room), but it is fairly cheap at about 50 euros per night, and clean enough.

The Pensao Residencial Ninho das Águias is recommended for those who want somewhere close to where it’s happening, don’t mind using their legs, are happy with a taste of Lisbon “as she is” as opposed to being pampered.
