Here are the main features of the rooms at Pestana Lisboa Vintage:

Apart from standard rooms, the hotel has some studio rooms and junior rooftop suites available.

One of the things we liked about our room? The bed was so comfortable! After a long day of exploring, it felt great to come back and get a good night’s sleep on a comfortable mattress.
Tip: Pick a room with a balcony, especially one with a street view. Our room was at the back side of the building, and we had a view of a crane due to nearby construction, no fault of the hotel.
Pestana Lisboa Vintage: Amenities
The amenities of the Pestana Lisboa Vintage include:
- 24-hour rooftop lounge
- Breakfast buffet option
- Luggage storage
- 24-hour Lobby snack bar ($)
- Parking nearby ($)
The 24-hour roof-top lounge is a perfect spot to relax or take a look from the balcony for views over Lisbon, anytime day or night. We enjoyed looking out over Lisbon at night from the rooftop lounge.
Pestana Lisboa Vintage offers free luggage storage in a dedicated room locked by staff, and it was incredibly helpful that they stored our bags for the day while we explored until our late evening flight out of Lisbon. Thanks to the hotel’s luggage storage service, I was able to head to historic Lisbon and visit the cathedral and St.George Castle bag free, with no worries about finding luggage lockers.
Pestana Lisboa Vintage: Dining
My favourite part about my stay was the delicious buffet breakfast in their eclectic meets vintage restaurant. Located on the main floor of Pestana Lisboa Vintage is their new on-site restaurant, Slang. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with indoor and outdoor seating options.
The atmosphere is laid back, designed to be a place where anyone can fit in. Slang is a fun and unique restaurant that features vintage chairs and urban graffiti walls, one that you can visit, even as a non-hotel guest.
Their buffet breakfast menu includes yogurt and granola, eggs, bacon, toast, pastries, and fresh fruit. There was tea, coffee, orange juice, almond milk, hot milk, and cold milk for their drink selection.
My favourite breakfast items were the mini chocolate pastries and the fresh Portugal orange juice. If you haven’t tried orange juice in Portugal, you need to!
Only a few pictures of breakfast got taken because I enjoyed my morning sleeping in my comfortable bed, but this restaurant is so cool! I was tired from a long day venturing around Lisbon’s modern neighbourhood, visiting attractions like the Aquarium and Gondola Car Ride. I caught the end of the breakfast buffet and would gladly do it again.

Pestana Lisboa Vintage: Review & Final Thoughts
In conclusion, I enjoyed my stay at Pestana Lisboa Vintage. I recommend you get a room with a balcony; if you don’t choose a balcony room, make sure you check out the rooftop lounge’s balcony.
After spending a few days in Lisbon right in the heart of the city, I wanted something quieter but still close to things, so I chose Pestana Lisboa Vintage. The hotel is a good pick for those looking to be near the action in Lisbon, but not too close.
