This hotel offered good value rooms with free parking. The location is excellent and if you are a good walker the old city is close. The rooms and especially the bath rooms need some TLD and retiling, but reception is friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Our criteria for hotels when traveling - walkable to the hot spots, safe, clean, wifi, and breakfast - oh yes, and inexpensive. This hotel hit all those points, and we'd definitely stay again. All for 60 Euro... It's close to public transportation (we took the yellow Rato stop to and from the airport), but we preferred the easy and pleasant... More

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
