The family-run Pensão S. João da Praça offers two floors of simple-yet-comfortable rooms, just across the street from the Sé Cathedral.
The pension's 15 rooms are sweet and airy, and decorated with pleasantly mismatched furniture, pretty tiles and funky lamps. Some rooms look onto the church's stark, 16th-century stone walls, while others open to fantastic (and more impressive) views of the River Tejo. The suite offers the best view by far, and has a sitting room with a pullout bed. All rooms are equipped with a TV and telephone.
The S. João has rooms with either private or shared bathrooms (two per floor). The former come in the more attractive rooms, and the latter are still equipped with a sink and bidet. Some of these rooms have an awkwardly placed shower stall in the corner, but at least you don't have to share!
The pension occupies the second and third floors of an elevator-less building, which is also home to the pretty Sé Guesthouse.
Breakfast is served in a neighboring café and is included in the rate. Wi-Fi is available in the lobby for €2 per day.

About the Pensao S. Joao da Praca neighborhood
To the East of Baixa, Alfama, Lisbon's castle district, sits perched above the Baixa. The Castelo de São Jorge is its crowning glory. Having survived the earthquake of 1755, the district is charmingly chaotic, with pockets of restaurants and shops, alleyways, little parks and broad views over the river.
