First it is important to mention that the hotel belongs to the hospitality school that is just beside the hotel. Hence most of the staff are students which is fine but this should clearly be mentioned in the hotel website and/or reservation websites. The first impression in the hotel was good, the staff is kind and we felt that we... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights and were very pleased to be upgraded to a suite as we were celebrating a special anniversary. The hotel has been styled to resemble a school although this is in parts only tokenistic . We found the style a bit confused with a real mixture of furnishings ,mostly very modern. The clear... More

I spent 6 nights there last week. What a great place! As soon as you walk in you feel the hospitality and the style. All of the staff members with whom I interacted were charming, gracious and helpful. My room was spacious, quiet as it overlooked a courtyard, and spotlessly clean. The bathroom had a proper full size bath with... More

We had a lovely stay in this hotel over a long weekend. We were very lucky to be upgraded into a suite, which is always nice to start off with. A quiet area of Lisbon, close to a Metro station. Staff very friendly, clean and spacious room. Nice breakfast and dinner in the restaurant too. Enjoyed the school theme as... More

I stayed here on a business trip to Lisbon. The rooms were very modern and comfortable. The front desk was extremely helpful in providing me with directions to my various business meetings. They always seemed to have time for me and I very much appreciated that. After having lived in Lisbon over 20 years ago and having walked the same... More

My experience was okay. But, I did have some trouble with the bathroom. At my first room, it was odd: two darkened glass areas (one with the shower and the others e with the toilet). At the first sight it look interesting but it wasn't functional at all. The water from the shower wet all the carpet's room and when... More

I'm pretty happy with my experience at Estrela. It is very easy to get to from the airport and is located in a good neighbourhood (30 minute downhill walk to the main center, but a lot of nice shops and views along the way). While it is definitely removed from the main tourist area, it is close to local hang... More

I think, I stayed here at the same time as Mrs-October! And I, of course, have a different experience. Although this Hotel has a school theme (see website) it has a most child unfriendly attitude. Massive, Massive, big box ticked!! No, really! great for business people, couples or independent travellers (not a RUGRAT to be seen) YIPPEE! Room massive, bed... More

I stayed three nights in November for business, but I must say I am not likely to stay here again. The hotel building is originally an old palace, but none of this remains - it has been decorated in very modern fashion, but using poor quality materials, which show. For example the desk chair looked worn and the cream fabric... More
