Located a block west of Rossio Square, the flag-bedecked Americano Residence is in the midst of a cosmetic makeover, offering 49 rooms that are either dated or trendy. Regardless, the Americano's chief asset lies in its incredibly central location.
Most of the rooms sport a distinct 1980’s style, with beige walls, green drapes and not-yet-retro furnishings. All are equipped with air conditioning, a TV and telephone. Baths are tiled and equipped with modern fixtures, full-sized tubs and a hair dryer.
Ten of the rooms, however, have had the “budget boutique hotel” transformation. Specifically, they have dark wooden headboards, chunky side tables, dark floors and track lighting. These rooms are equipped with a flat-screen TV, telephone and air conditioning. They also have fancier baths than the standard rooms, with a glass-paneled shower, modern sink and matching wooden trappings. Note that rooms on the first floor (like room 101, pictured) get some outside noise, so light sleepers should ask for a higher floor.
A continental breakfast is included in the room rate. Wi-Fi is offered throughout the hotel for a steep €2 per hour.

About the Hotel Americano 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.
