El pequeño boutique hotel York House en Lisboa forma parte de un grupo de edificios que constituían el original Convento de los Marianos, construido en 1606. El convento, sin embargo, se disolvió, en 1759, bajo las órdenes del Marqués de Pombal; y sería en 1880, después de un periodo de abandono que parte de éste se convertiría en un histórico hotel, adoptando su nombre actual. La York House se localiza sobre una pared rosa, al final de unos misteriosos escalones que llevan a un hermoso patio que rebosa flores, árboles y plantas, y ofrece 34 requintadas habitaciones, un fabuloso comedor y un agradable bar. El exuberante patio proporciona un majestuoso ambiente de villa privada y es un lugar maravilloso para deleitarse con la buena comida. El interior incluye azulejos de mármol y suelos de madera pulida que ayudan a crear una atmósfera serena y típicamente portuguesa, en el maravilloso centro de Lisboa.
With its lush, green, secluded garden terrace, elegantly appointed sitting areas, halls decorated with antiques and statues, York House supports guests with its quiet dignity and charm. Rooms are small but nice, bathrooms modern. We loved our stay there. Centrally located and yet hidden away. You could walk all over Lisbon's crazy maze of hill-challenged streets to find a nice place for a drink, or you could buy some cheeses and a bottle of wine/port and bring it back to the garden terrace; magically a staff person will appear and offer you plates and proper glasses, and you can just enjoy life for what it is meant to be. Highly recommend. P.S. the porter will bring your bags up the stairway, but beware too much luggage is not the best way to enjoy an old, once-convent then private home then traditional hotel.
A real good place.

Looks like nothing from the outside, but climb the stairs, enter the shaded courtyard, and you will find a charming, modern, quiet, hidden gem where you can enjoy first-class accommodations in the heart of Lisbon. Rooms are spacious, the staff is helpful and gracious, and the 15 Euro breakfast is ample and generous. Would stay there again if we return to Lisbon. Highly recommended!

Pleasant and quiet hotel with a beautiful courtyard and good traffic connections.The bathrooms are somewhat antiquated, therefore 1 star deduction. The helpful staff at the reception, who take care of everything, such as the booking of a Fado evening, is to be emphasized particularly positively. Highly recommended if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre, but still within walking distance of Cais do Sodré.

Reasonable. Lovely building although there was massive building works next door so when you came back in the afternoon after exploring the city you could not enjoy the peace and quite in patio area because of the noise.
Staff were friendly but NOT particularly helpful: e.g. I asked how much for taxi to Cascas and was told E50. In actual fact it cost between E25 - E28.
Importantly the air conditioning was not working properly. No matter how low you set it it stayed the same. I suspect it was a generic sysyem that transmitted the same tempreture to every room.
