Very good location in the centre, still the room was a jump to the 80s! Had to queue for breakfast. Free wifi was given. It was bit sad overall, bathroom was clean but had some sort of tin roof that gave a feeling of uneasiness.

Service was ok, but the rooms are below average. Air con wasn't working and you pay extra to rent a mini fridge. Breakfast was not very good. No option for joint bed (we pushed them together, but they came apart easily). Staff was helpful, but in total an experience below average. Lisbon is amazing though:)

As I always have to book at last minute – Nacional was the best possible hotel considering location and price at the moment. I didn’t expect anything special from 3 star hotel. And I was not disappointed at all. It is clean, with polite and helpful staff, average breakfast, comfortable bed, old bathroom and hairdryer, mini market in one block... More

Not a good hotel at all, just stay there if you can not find other places, apart of the location there is absolutely no positive thing about Nacional. The breakfast is very basic, rooms are small and deciration is old fashioned. The internet is not working or when it does it is very slow (it's free), there is no restaurant,... More

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...
