Brown’s Downtown Hotel
Chic boutique hotel with a creative vibe
Brown’s Downtown is a charming bluish building with decorative iron rails that sits in a row of connected buildings on a one-way, cobbled street. Inside, the lobby has a chic, industrial feel with concrete floors, loft windows, and track lighting. Under a long mirror, black-and-white photos are propped up atop short, wooden bookcases lining a wall. A variety of modern and trendy furniture makes up the seating areas, including wooden and glass tables and retro-inspired chairs. Wall-mounted swing-arm lamps add a creative vibe to the space, while jazz music plays through the speakers, giving the guests, mainly couples, a smooth soundtrack.
On quiet street within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and public transportation
Brown’s Downtown is conveniently located in Lisbon's city center. It’s a five-minute walk to Rossio Square, one of the city’s main squares since the 13th century, where guests can go for restaurants, shops, and architecture. It’s also within a 10-minute walk of Camoes Square District with nightlife and entertainment. The location is less than a 15-minute walk to most of the sightseeing destinations, including the Bairro Alto, the Praca do Comercio, and even St. George’s Castle and the Alfama neighborhood. There’s a metro stop within two blocks, putting the airport within a 25-minute commute on public transportation, or a 15-minute drive, depending on traffic.
Trendy rooms with chic decor and modern technology
Rooms are incredibly stylish, with black-and-white photos, big wood-frame mirrors, attractive bedding, and contemporary lighting. Doors with glass windows bring light to the rooms and expose the small, metal-railed balconies. Rooms come with tiny kitchenettes that include stove tops; dishes, pots and pans; small sinks; coffee- and tea-making facilities; and mini-fridges. Flat-screen TVs and high-tech touches are standard, including iPads, iMacs, and iHome radios. Wi-Fi is free, but guests complain that the signal is spotty. Bathrooms are small with marble stand-in showers with rain showerheads, and toiletries in pump dispensers. Larger suites have skylights and large, flat-screen TVs, but Standard Rooms can be small.
Convenient location, trendy lobby, and sister coffee shop nearby
The decor is the stand-out feature here, and while there are not a lot of common spaces, the trendy lobby offers plenty of seating and an Internet corner with one computer. Guests can tune in to a Spotify channel to listen to the hotel's music. There’s no restaurant or breakfast room on-site, but guests can purchase breakfast at the hotel's nearby coffee shop, a handsome space with a library-like vibe and outdoor seating under umbrellas.
