The hotel Nacional is an excellent basic hotel, if you aren't the most demanding off traveler. When we arrive at the hotel, the room is already available to us. We are escorted by a bellhop that shows us the way and carries our luggage for us.The hotel interior is somewhat dated, but the rooms are spacious and kept clean every... More

I couldn't imagine a more agreeable staying for a 3 stars' hotel! The staff was always kind and helpful (even spoke italian, a plus for many of my compatriots), perfect location just 5 minutes for the main street Avenida da Liberdade and from the Metro station at the Praça M. de Pombal, from where you can dive in the city...

The hotel looks much better on the pictures then in reality. Our room was clean but looked like from early 70's. We had a room on the first floor and it was too close to outside AC units, therefore, it was too noisy at night. Breakfast was very simple (as I understand it is relatively the same in budget hotels... More

To be honest we booked this hotel only for their parking and it was not bad as the center was not too far away from here...a very basic hotel but thats what one should get specially with their parking facilities. You will have to hold shower in your hand as there is no hook for that.

From the moment one walks into this property it becomes clear that is dated. Very dated. Not old, nor falling appart, but just out of place for the price range and location. The room was reasonably sized, and had regular beds - decent enough for a single night at least. No complaints but definitely no laurels for the room. Haven't... More

Excellent basic hotel for a short stay (3-4 nights) if you aren't the demanding traveller. Decorations are rather old fashioned and the lobby/restaurant designs are interesting to say the least. Location is good, close to one of the large metro stations - but most times we just walked to the city centre and seafront. Included breakfast is basic but quite... More

This hotel is very dated. Beds are extremely hard with almost no padding or cushion on the mattress. Woke up with soar back. Bed spread looked like something from grannys house. Flat screen TV only pleaseant update in room. Location ok near Liberdade and Edward VII park. Although at top of hill so quite the walk back. Only really friendly... More

I spend 3 weeks in Hotel Nacional. Room is clear and service is nice and helpful. Good location in center near restaurant and metro station ( blue and yellow line). The only downside was the breakfast monotony. I recommend this Hotel.

well we just got back from lisbon, beautiful city, enchanting and historic. We stayed at this hotel and the location was good, not right in the tourist old town but very close (walking 15 minutes) and 2 metro stops from the main squares (rossio). I would say good location, safe and definately easy to get too. The hotel is not... More
