Must say that we were not sure what to expect as we've seen some great and not so good reviews about this hotel.But honestly that was one of the best hotels we stayed in just because it was a bit diffrent. It's kept in a little old fashion style, furnishing is and decorations are a bit dated, that's very true,... More

This is an OK hotel. Nothing spectacular or special. Some positives: Great service-minded and very friendly staff, a swimming pool, balcony in the room and the view over the sea (especially if you are on the top/5th floor as we were, facing the sea). Also, the location is good - close to central down town Cascais. Some negatives: it is... More

We are just back from Caiscais and stayed here. It is like stepping back to 1970's decor, not unlike the hotel from the shining (but no where near as big) It is old fashioned BUT it is spotless, and the decor is not worn. Breakfast was a typical continental breakfast but there was lots of everything and could not be... More

Spent a few nights here a few weeks ago. Booked double room through an on-line broker, only to be told at reception that " We don't do Double Rooms for cheap prices" You are getting a Twin Room. The Hotel it self is clean and well presented if not a little 70's .. 20 Minute Walk to the town centre... More

We arrived to discover a real life time warp hotel, sending us hurtling back to an age of waistcoated waiters pushing squeaky trolleys, wood-chipped/wood-panelled/wood-furnished rooms and mechanical lifts with concertina doors. Quite enjoyed the retro theme. The indoor plumbing surprisingly forceful, the pool a nice size in lovely garden and the whole place kept flawlessly spotless. Breakfast missing a little... More

Very pleasant Hotel,with friendly and helpful Reception staff. The room was spotlessly clean and large with a fine view from the balcony. We stayed on a Bed and Breakfast basis, which turned out to be a good choice as the Hotel was very quiet in the evenings and there was a very good choice of restaurants in the town which... More

Just home from a wonderful weeks holiday in Cidadela. Staff are lovely, helpful and friendly. Room was large with a beautiful view and cleaned everyday. Pool was terrific, bar and common areas were beautiful. A terrific place to stay and near everywhere. We will be back.

from a spring trip to Lisbon & Cascais and the Cidadela has proved as reliable as ever. Great service, extremely helpful staff and super large bathroom, along with a balcony with a view over the town to the Tejo and Cparica make this an obvious choice for me. You don't need a car to get around - the Buscas (Boca... More

I was at this hotel for a weekend with some friends. The hotel has clearly lived better times and you can tell by the size of the rooms and common areas, but the furniture and the decoration has not been updated since probably the seventies/eighties. Any case, the size of the room and the bathroom is larger than what you... More
