The popular Pensão Residencial Gerês, run by a friendly husband-and-wife team, offers 20 comfortable rooms around the corner from Rossio Square. The Gerês feels homier than many of the neighboring budget options, and caters to an older, quieter crowd. Party animals should look elsewhere.
Rooms are sunny with stark white walls, blue carpets and high ceilings. The décor is very simple: sturdy wooden beds, wardrobes and bureaus, along with the occasional vase of faux flowers. Rooms are equipped with cable TV, and some have balconies offering pleasant views of the pedestrian streets. (Request ahead.)
Private bathrooms have shower stalls though no tubs. If you'd like to save a few euros, book a room that shares one of the corridor bathrooms, which are sparklingly clean.
There's a computer station in the TV lounge with broadband Internet access and a printer (€2 per hour). A video surveillance system linked to the lobby lets the staff see who is buzzing at the front door. (A useful feature, as some sketchy characters sometimes hang out along the street downstairs).

About the Pensao Residencial Geres 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.
