O que se poderá dizer mais acerca do Zuzabed...que prima pelo ambiente acolhedor e simpático, pelo charme e bom gosto da sua decoração...pela localização...bem no coração de Lisboa e com uma vista privilegiada sobre o Castelo de S. Jorge... Enfim...espero la voltar!
Aliás aqui pelo Norte, a publicidade já tem sido feita...a "de boca a boca" que é a melhor!!

Um beijinho e continuação de um excelente trabalho!!

Num fim-de-semana que apelava à descontracção, ao desligar do botãozinho "TRABALHO", aos sons de um Super Bock Super Rock, eis que encontrei/amos no coração de uma Lisboa antiga e pulsante, um ninho na plena acepção da palavra... Tranquilo, acolhedor, chilreante (o som dos pássaros divagava pela brisa matinal), poético, inspirador... nutritivo (ai, ai o pequeno-almoço). O que fica mesmo gravado é a varanda que parece beijar Lisboa - onde passei/amos bons momentos - e a simpatia do Luís. Sem dúvida a repetir :)

Um beijinho do Norte e até breve!

Excellent location, excellent city (what can top Lisbon?) Zuzabed is 5* accommodation plus! Luis, you are an excellent host, if only every holiday could command such happy memories. I wish you every continued success, you deserve it.

We have had three wonderful days in Lisabon, and enjoyed our stay in Zuzabed very much. The view from the room and the terrace is amazing, and we have been served delicious breakfasts.
Happy couple from Norway.

when we arrived in Lisboa late night and tried to find Zuzabed with our rental car we didnt succeed - but Luis was already waiting on the phone and collected us from a nearby place. Zuzabed was one of the best hosting places in our entire vacation life. dont miss it! The hostility of Luis and the rooms (with a perfect view on Lisbon) and a nice terrace are exceptional. the breakfast - a pleasure. thanks for this and wish you big success, it shouldnt be difficult!

Que maravilla Lisboa guiados y acogidos por Luis en Zuzabed! He tenido la suerte de viajar por muchas partes del mundo y de verdad Zuzabed es como estar en casa... pero con todos los arreglos que siempre quisiste hacer y no has tenido el tiempo! Lisboa es acogedor, hermoso y amigable y Zuzabed fué para nosotros una exelente manera de vivirlo.
Luis es un anfitrión muy generoso con sus atenciones, con su preocupación, con sus conocimientos y con el desayuno!!! Cada detalle es un agrado y la hospitalidad tan nutritiva se agradece con mucho cariño!!!

It was my first visit to Portugal, so I made a reservation at Zuzabed to be able to enjoy the heart of the city, with comfort and the possibility to interact with Portuguese people. The place has gone way beyond my expectations, as I would like to think I have met friends in the person of Luis... and Luis. Simply fantastic!

Idunn said...

What a fantastic experinece to stay at Zuzabed! The HOSPITALITY of Luis is expetional and he has the ability to know what you want or need before you do so yourself. Zuzabed is a very centrally, yet quietly located bed&breakfast in Lisbonne with cool rooms and with a beautiful view over the city. The breakfast is a feast and the whole deal is very good value for money. Keep up the good work, Luis. Personally, I cannot wait to get back! Thanks for everything - you are a doll!

Zuzabed is, without any doubt, one of the BEST and most EXCEPTIONAL B&B we have experienced so far in our travels. Actually, it did not feel like a B&B at all but, rather, we had the feeling we were staying at a friend's place and we felt instantly "at home" with Luis.

To start with, the place (which used to be Luis'own flat)is absolutely wonderful and decorated with great taste ... and nothing can beat the amazing views from the room and terrace overlooking the city, as we were relaxing on the deck chairs in the hot Lisbon nights sipping glasses of "Vino Verde" ...

But of course, it is Luis'amazing hospitality that we will never forget ... he took such a good care of us and anticipated all of our needs as if he had know us forever, from advising us so patiently about the best things to do and see in Lisbon (and God knows the list is endless)to pampering us with the best breakfasts ever, which typically lasted until late in the morning as we were having endless conversations with Luis and the other guests around the delcious cakes and fruit salads ...

OBRIGAGA for everything, dear Luis, and we really cannot wait to come back to Zuzabed again!!!

Gauthier said...

Le meilleur B&B de ma carrière de touriste. En fait il faudrait inventer une nouvelle manière de décrire cette expérience tout à fait exceptionelle. Mais pour faire simple, Zuzabed c'est un peu comme si on visitait son meilleur ami et que celui-ci nous insistait pour nous prêter SA chambre. Zuzabed, c'est ça. C'est rendre visite à son meiller ami.

Zuzabed is a great place to stay at an excellent location in Lissabon.
Luis, you really made us feel very at home.
The rooms are very nice and the breakfast every morning was very good.
I can recommend Zuzabed to anyone who is going to Lissabon and if we ever will come back, I will be sure to call again Luis!

Adorei a hospitalidade desta magnifica guest house, ou seja, do Luís. Tudo aquilo que usufrui, foi demais, o quarto, o terraço, tudo!!

La mejor localización en el centro de Lisboa,el ambiente más acogedor y la mejor compania de la ciudad. Luis hace que te sientas como en casa (o mejor)y que no te falte nada. Hemos estado 2 días, y efectivamente nos ha sabido a poco. Sin duda alguna volveremos. Muy recomendable!!!

It was a terrific experience! It really felt like home. Zuzabed is, for sure, the best place to stay in Lisboa, with the best host in the world, Luis, that made my vacations became the best I ever had, with all is patience, advices and recomandations. The atmospheer can compete with the best of Portugal. I loved it!
The location couldn't be better, right in the midle of everything you need, not talking about the area, that is something...
The room, soooooooo charming, soooooo romantic, very well decorated, very chick. The view from the room and terrace to the castle and baixa are fenomenal. And last the breakfast, is to die for. Everything is made fresh, different special things each day.
I definitely recommend Zuzabed for anyone who loves this concept.
CONGRATULATIONS Luis.
GREAT place! I will go back!

Irene & Stef said...

Zuzabed and especially the host Luis should make any tourist happy, the location is just perfect, between the nightlife "barrio alto" and the more chique "baixa". We were a bit afraid of the noise at night, but this didnt seem to be any problem thanks to the double windows and the pedestrian area in which the B&B is located. As for the services it is probably one of the best you will find at this price; the rooms are kept very clean, the beds comfortable and the breakfast anything one could wish for ! Luis, is a very helpful guy who doesnt spare any effort to make his guests feel at home or help them out with finding parking place or just a good restaurant.
Highly recommended and thanks again to Luis!!

DO NOT CAME TO ZUZABED B&B : YOU COULD LOVE IT AND LISBOA AT ITS BEST, LUIS ' SUGGESTIONS AND EXPERIENCE AND LOVELY ROOMS TO TAKE GOOD BREAKS; IT COULD BE VERY DIFFICULT TO LEAVE IT AND THIS WONDERFUL AND "UNIQUE" LISBOA BUT LIFE GOES ON AND TIME TOO : YOU CAN COME BACK ASAP.
THANKS LUIS FOR EVERYTHING, THANKS LISBOA TOO.

Ellen & Jo said...

Hey Luis!!

I promised you when we left, that I would certainly write something down. What can I say about Zuzabed? An amazing atmosphere, in the heart of Lisbon, beautiful rooms, superb breakfasts and the PERFECT host. Luis, you really made us feel home! When we left Lisbon, we travelled to the north, but our stay in Lisbon was the highlight of our trip in Portugal. You pampered us during those 5 days and we will certainly never forget you! And we are sure you'll remember us the next time you go to Chapito and see the king ;-)
One day we'll come back!

Lots of love

Bonjour a tous...
Voila un superbe endroi, il ne peut
qu'etre recommande pour son emplacement en plein centre de Lisbone mais profittant du calme d'une rue pietonne, magnifique vue sur le chateau et la vieille ville.
L'acceuil offert par Luis nous a permis de proffiter pleinement de notre sejour, son sourire, et son coup de pouce envers toute situation a ete des plus efficace.
On ne parle pas du petit dejeuner; Veritable combustible pour toute la journee. Bien a vous. Helen, Sabine et Sarah.

JAMIE & TOM said...

We stayed at Zuzabed for three wonderful nights. The location was perfect (close to everything) on a sloping Lisbon street. Very beatiful. We also appreciated Luis as host. The breakfast was amazing and he truly helped us enjoy Lisbon to the fullest. Thanks so much! We hope to visit again.

LIZ & HAMISH said...

Luis,

Thanks so much for your amazaing hospitality. Staying at Zuza made our stay in Lisbon. You have such a winning formula here- comfort, style, affordability, an amazing location, a relaxed atmosphere, great breakfasts, an amazing host, the list goes on!

We hope to come back to Zuza at some point in the future - so please dont change any of the above. Good luck with it all!

Much love
Liz and Hamish

Hi Everybody, I'm Luis from Zuzabed! This note is just to say that the previous comment was written by Leslie (USA) & Marten (Sweden). They checked out today 10/09/06, they signed this online guestbook but... they forgot to sign :).
Thanks Leslie & Marten, it was very nice to host you both here in Lisbon.

Muchas gracias por ser como sois y hacer que nos hayamos sentido mejor que en casa.

Zuzabed was one of our finest lodging experiences of all time. Our time spent in Lisbon would not have been the same without host Luis Zuzarte and this ideal bed and breakfast. In addition to making us feel completely at home, Luis provided amazing assistance in terms of dining advice, tourism destinations, and nightlife locales. Finally, the location is ideal. Near restaurants, nightlife, cultural and tourist destinations, as well as transportation hubs, we cant imagine a more convenient place to lay our heads in Lisboa. Obrigado Luis! We hope to see you again--

Eddy said...

I'm sitting in the lounge in ZUZABED thinking of a way to put what I have experienced these last five days into words... but I really cant, the magic of the lights, sounds, smells, tastes of Lisboa will forever stay with me, and can only be felt by experiencing it, not reading, telling or hearing it.

Its pure magic but when you are traveling alone, like all places where you do not speak the language and do not know the customs it can all feel a bit intimidating to go out there and experience the best Lisboa has to offer. That is where ZUZABED as a B&B comes into its own. From day one you do not feel like a client but as a fiend, a guest.

ZUZABED is the only way to experience Lisboa and the true magic of it. With fantastic views of the old castle and city, great furniture, superb breakfast and central location, it truly is unbeatable.

Thank you Luis and Luis for being great hosts, a fantastic holiday and never making one feel like it might not be a proper time to ask advice or for any other form of help.

A correction to my Comment, in ZUZABED you really feel like a friend not a fiend.

Fantastic. We had a wonderful time! If you truly want to experience Lisbon like a true local, Luis will show you the way to do it. Personal attention to everyhing. His restaurant recommendations to the places to visit, they were all great. Probably one of the best places we´ve ever stayed at. Would definitely come back and stay here again. Thx!

Luc said...

I spend almost one week at the Zuzabed in October and it was a real joy. The location is fabulous, the size of the place (4 rooms) is perfect to have the impression that you have your own place in lovely Lisbon and the breakfast is great. But the most important thing is the kindness of the hosts. I will return for sure.

GINA & JAMESON said...

After looking at what seemed like thousands of places to stay in
Lisbon we finally found Zuzabed which seemed perfect and of course full!
We were very lucky to get a room 2 weeks later after a cancellation and it really was perfect.

The location is fantastic very close to all the attractions, transport,
restaurants, fado etc; all be it half way up a hill! Luis is a great host ready to recommend or give advice about everything to make your stay
memorable.

We really enjoyed our stay at Zuzabed and would highly recommend it to everyone coming to vist Lisbon!

Thank you for a lovely stay in Lisbon and at Zuzabed. It was great,we loved our accommodation and the yummy breakfasts.

Francesca e Claudio, Roma said...

Ecco un’oasi di pace, relax, charme e calore nel cuore di Lisbona.
Andateci, non ve ne pentirete! Poche camere curate nei dettagli e arredate con gusto, una posizione incantevole e una location perfetta per visitare la città.
Una delle camere vanta una vista quasi a 360 gradi sulla città, e ha anche una piccola ma romantica terrazza. Vi sveglierete guardando il castello di Sao Jorge. Poi scenderete a fare colazione, abbondante e gustosa, scambiando quattro chiacchiere con il proprietario.

Che dire di lui, Luis! Persona fantastica! E’ lui l’anima di questo delizioso b&b. Entusiasta, comunicativo, simpaticissimo e appassionato del suo lavoro. Vi farà sentire come a casa vostra e saprà darvi preziosi consigli su Lisbona, seguiteli!

Altro punto a favore del b&b: proprio sotto c’è un ristorantino dove a volte la sera suonano il fado. Così potete bervi il vostro porto in terrazza allietati dalle note malinconiche dal fado ed ammirando Lisbona che si apre davanti ai vostri occhi. E dopo siete pronti per andare a cenare in uno degli innumerevoli ristoranti a due passi da Zuzabed.

Noi siamo stati benissimo, Lisbona ci è rimasta nel cuore e…

…Luis, grazie per la tua accoglienza. Ti aspettiamo a Roma!

Zuzabed fue nuestro descubrimiento de este otoño caluroso. Empezábamos la mañana con unos desayunos internacionales divertidos y muy didácticos, el día seguía con paseos por la maravillosa Lisboa y a la noche, de vuelta en Zuzabed, nos sentíamos como en casa. Muchas gracias Luis por haber creado un espacio de encuentro tan agradable.
Repetiremos!!!!

Thomas & Miguel said...

We really enjoyed our stay at Zuzabed. A small and homely place with four rooms only, very nicely decorated, well set up and clean. In perfect location just a few steps away from the very center of the city. Being such a small place, the beautiful thing was that we got to know the other guests, having interesting conversations at the excellent breakfast, or over a glass of Port wine in the evening. The best was the care and attention given by the owner Luis to all his guests. Definitely our preferred place to stay next time we visit Lisbon!~

DARL SCHAAFF said...

After spending 4 weeks travelling in Spain and having language problems, it was so refreshing to arrive to such a friendly and charming location as Zuzabed. The B&B is in the heart of Chiado, close to everything. Your host is truly attentive and provides you with everything from dinner reservations to tips on shopping, best sight seeing and ground transportation. It was a true "home" feel with confortable very clean rooms, great breakfast and a welcoming attitude. I highly recommend Zuzabed for all my english speaking friends.

Caro Luis,

Siamo stati molto bene a Lisbona….i suoi vicoli, le salite, i panorami, gli scorci, le case, i tram, i colori rimangono nei nostri pensieri e nei nostri cuori. La gentilezza e l'accoglienza che ci hai riservato li rendono ancora più belli e la tua casa li colora dell'azzurro del cielo che abbiamo apprezzato dalla finestra della stanza dove abbiamo dormito. E' stato bello svegliarsi così!

Siamo stati molto bene a Lisbona….ed è anche grazie a te.

Speriamo di rivederti presto.

Se oltre al desiderio di visitare Lisbona, una città vera e ricca di charme, cercate anche un luogo accogliente, con un sincero contatto umano, l'avete trovato, qui, a casa di Luis! La sua ospitalità non è di facciata, lui svolge il suo lavoro con vera passione! Questo ve lo dice chi gestisce un b&b in Italia, a Barolo (www.vicolodelpozzo.it).
Donatella e Gianni ringraziano Luis per quanto loro regalato, in questi 5 giorni trascorsi nella tua citta!
Ciao.

Gianni.

Just got home from staying in one of the nicest B&B`s ever. Luis is the best host you could ask for. Nothing is too much trouble for him. You ask him what is a good restaurant and he is straight on the phone to book you a table. You go down with a cold ( as i did )
and he gets you medication.You are visiting a friend ,not staying in a geust house. If You go to LISBON, (STAY AT ZUZA) You can`t go wrong.

Ya han dicho todo lo que se puede decir de Luis y de Zuzabed, pero aún así me parece poco... Nunca me ha gustado tanto que me llamaran Gemma o Miriam en vez de María, :) ni he encontrado las escaleras en vez de empinadas, encantadoras; ni he querido quedarme en el hotel "un ratito más" en vez de irme a ver la cuidad... eso sólo me ha pasado en Zuzabed, el mejor B&B en el que he estado en mi vida. Exquisito, con encanto, con gusto, moderno y antiguo a la vez... una pasada.
Ojalá todo siga igual cuando vuelva a visitar Zuzabed, Luis.

Sinceramente creo que Zuzabet es mas que un sitio, es un mundo en el que te envuelve luis y compañia.
El encanto de estar en un hotel y el placer de estar en casa. La atencio y la higiene es mas que un dicho, es un hecho. En cuanto a la ciudad es encantadora siempre y cuando estes con la compañia de luis y los compatriotas de lisboa, un beso para zuzabet i te imvito a que lo conozcas y guardes la esperiencia para siempre al igual que nosotros.
besos desde barcelona

sometimes the internet turns up trumps, and Zuzabed is THE trump card - Luis has created a place like one of the other posts said - you don't feel like a paying guest, you feel like a friend. We stayed in two rooms during our week in Lisbon, both comfortable and well appointed (tho the terrace is recommended...). Luis was there every morning, helping out with insider knowledge on how to get the best out of your stay, as well as sharing some of his great tunes and tales... Lisbon is an amazing city (everything and more one could hope for), and staying at Zuzabed is the perfect way to experience.

best wishes, Luis

Luis and Zuzabed made my stay in Lisbon so close to perfection that it was physically painful to leave them both. I can not recommend this place enough and can't wait to go back.
Muito obrigada e ate'logo Luis!

This is the best place to start your visit to Lissabon, every day again. Sitting at the breakfasttable together with other gasts and Luis, your host, talking about the comming day, what you can do or visit. Then, you walk out the door and you're in the centre of Lissabon. I really love Zuzabed, everything there is so normal. It's not a B & B, it's a second home.
Thanks Luis, we'll come back. X

We felt so welcomed by Luis in our recent stay (May 4&5,2008). We traveled with another couple and stayed in the comfortable 2 rooms that shared a balcony. And what a beautiful view from that balcony!! Luis treated us as special guests but we know he treats ALL his guests this way because we witnessed it. He advised us on what great sites to see in our short stay and advised us to a great place to experience Fado which we loved. Thanks Luis for making our stay in Lisbon so memorable!

We loved our stay with Luis, Jorge, and Juan. Lisbon is a beautiful city, and the views and delicious breakfast prepared each morning just added to our visit. We even got used to climbing up the steps and experiencing the "real Lisbon." Thanks for all of your help and great conversation.

Caro Luis,
la nostra vacanza in Portogallo è purtroppo terminata.
Essere tuoi ospiti è stata davvero un'esperienza bellissima, ci hai fatto sentire veramente a casa!
Lisbona ci è rimasta nel cuore e non dubito che troveremo un buon motivo per tornare prima o poi.

Complimenti per l'ottimo lavoro e grazie ancora per le tue squisite attenzioni ed i tuoi preziosi consigli.

Un abbraccio, a presto

What a wonderful B&B. 5 Star B&B with so much added on. And Luis is the best host you could ask for.
We had a fabulous stay of 3 nights with great views of the Castello

If there's a B&B to consider in Lisbon it's this one.
We had 5 wonderful days at Zuzabed with Luis. Amazing experience full of the best we could ask for our holidays. The attention to the details to make us feel much comfortable as possible is something we will never forget. He thought about everything.
Zuzabed is beautiful and very homely place where we always wanted to comeback after our visits.
The lovely and confortable green room with terrace was our daily escape to relax. Very good bed and although a little toilette was private and more than enough for our needs. Good shower.
The room had a very good daily cleanning service and the staff always served a delicious breakfast we had the pleasure to share with the other Guests and Luis. Very good moments.
The location beats everything once it's walking distance to all the major places we wanted to visit. I have to confess that I was a bit affraid when Luis said on the emails they were at the city-centre but when there I had to agree 150% with him.

We defenetely will return Luis; wait for us and I hope you have availability.

We wait for you in Berlin.

We recently returned from the fabulous and most written about B&B !!! We LOVED it too. My mom, 83 yrs. young was adventurous and stayed in the Castle Terrace room because she wanted to soak in the view of Lisbon and the castle every day.Stairs were challenging but well worth it she said !!! Well we did soak in that view and the rest of Lisbon.... and Luis was just great and the perfect host in making Lisbon easy to navigate and to see the sights. We truly loved the room and the B&B as a whole.. the fresh flowers, fresh and healthy breakfast as well as the coffee/tea bar. Lisbon is a gem of a city and Zuzabed is tucked away on the stairwell that everyone knows in Lisbon as a way to get around. Thank you to Luis and Fatima for the great care and comfortable stay.Luis should be on the travel channel !!!! We hope to return soon and explore some more ! best wishes from bev and anne, massachusetts April, 2009

What a wonderfull stay we had at Zuzabed! It was recommended to us by friends and we must not forget to thank them a million times. Zuzabed comes with a private ambassador for Lisbon called Luis. He takes care of everything you can imagine. It (off course) starts with a cosy and clean room with everything you need (including airco, free DVD's, free music, ...), but that's just the beginning. Luis takes care of your every need. Reservations to nice places to eat, a cell phone to contact him for any question you might have during the day, tips for places to see and how to get there best, ... And to start the day just perfect, you will be treated to a delicious breakfast! And he succeeds in making his guests get to know each other like no one else. In no time you feel like your staying with friends. Zuzabed was thé most fantastic ending of our wonderfull trip to Portugal! Thanks again Luis! We'll certainly meet again sometime...

Luis is by far the MOST welcoming host at a B&B that we have ever met! There are so many little extra touches that make staying at Zuzabed such a great experience. We could not recommend staying here highly enough and Zuzabed will be at the top of the list of places we would want to stay in when we return to Lisbon.

avec un tel accueil et un lieu si soigné et sympathique, Zuzabed est indéniablement une excellente adresse à Lisbonne. Vous profiterez ainsi pleinement de votre séjour, et ceci dès le petit déjeuner que Luis ne manquera pas d'imprégner de sa bonne humeur et de son humour.

A coup sûs un coup de coeur ...

Nous avons passé quatre jours enchanteurs chez vous, Luis. Tout a été parfait: chambre avec vue magnifique sur la ville et le château, petits-déjeuners délicieux, accueil plus que chaleureux et serviable, localisation parfaite.... Merci pour tout. Nous avons hâte de revenir!

Amitiés.

Obrigado to Luis and his "Team". There are two main factors that made our stay outstanding in Lisbon. First is the warm welcome from Luis' team and their efforts to make our stay extraordinary. The personal attention from Luis added to our experience of warmth and welcome by Portugal as a whole. Secondly is the location. To experience the character of old Lisboa at Zuzabed's unique location is one not to be missed and absolutely brought the most value to our stay.
