The Albergaria Residencial Insulana provides well-preserved rooms with great rates in the very heart of the Baixa grid. If you're looking for a professionally-run operation with clean rooms, the Insulana is a safe bet.
The pension's 32 rooms mix sturdy wooden antique furnishings with '70s-retro pieces. We saw lots of white walls, green carpets and floral bedspreads. Rooms are well equipped for a pension, all with air conditioning, a flat-paneled TV and telephone. And they're quite clean: We encountered what seemed like an army of cleaners. Bathrooms, with their lime-green tub/shower combos and dated fixtures, are a bit “retro.”
The Insulana occupies three floors of a five-story building. Its location, at the corner of Rua da Assunção and Rua dos Correiros, puts it smack in the heart of café-lined and pedestrian-only Baixa. Rooms on the second and fourth floor offer balconies overlooking the streets—certainly a romantic plus. The pedestrian streets can get noisy at night, so light sleepers should ask for one of the 12 rooms that face the back.
Free Wi-Fi is offered in the hotel's lounge and public areas. A continental breakfast is included in the room rate.

About the Albergaria Residencial Insulana neighborhood
The grid-shaped Baixa neighborhood was completely rebuilt following Lisbon’s an earthquake in 1755. Today the area functions as the city's chief shopping hub. Two large streets, rua Augusta and rua de Santa Justa, are pedestrian-only. Baixa is an easy jumping-off point for seeing the rest of the city. Praça Rossio, sitting at the top of Baixa, is the city's most active square.
