We didnt expected to have a 4-star with pretty low fares for 2 nights in Lisbon but it just happened. The location itself is pretty okay, few mins walk from subway and bus station with convenient access to the resorts. The room was average for a 4-star but the space is definitely of good value for the price. Services were... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights whilst in Lisbon. The best way I can describe it is as per the title. Depressing! The room was small and the window hardly let any light in. The hotel itself felt deserted. I definitely would not rate this as a 4 star hotel. Location was ok but you needed to take... More

It was a disappointing stay during four days in Lisbon due to work. The location is bad because there's not much commerce around, if you want to go to a nice restaurant to have dinner it's better to catch a cab and go to the center. I don't recommend no one to eat in the hotel restaurante, because the food... More

The hotel is situated very far from the city center. One is constantly bothered by noise from planes starting or landing in the nearby airport. The layout of the room is hopeless! The bathroom is separted from the room by a large pane of frosted glass, which means, that the whole room is flooded in light, if the bathroom light... More

Perfect 7 night stay, staff very helpful! Room ok and cleaned everyday. My only critisism is that the bed is hard, well that's a personal issue for me. Pool very good and clean, overall facilities are ok for the price. Just remember to your Ethernet cable for the internet in the room. Thanks to all the staff at the VR.

As a frequent visitor to Lisbon, I was amazed that this hotel was three times cheaper than my previous visits. The staff are more than helpful and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and clean. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the rooms. It is in a very quiet location but there are taxis outside and the cost to the Chiado,... More

I spent four nights on a business trip in this hotel. The room was comfortable and clean, the bathroom too. In the room there is internet for free, though you may need a cable to plug in. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was quite mediocre or even poor, the cold cuts were not very promising and... More

Booked this hotel based on its price, which I maintain is still very good value. But please note nothing of note is within walking distance so taxis or the metro will be used on a daily basis. Hotel has modern feel about it & the service from reception was good. The Spa is OK but annoyingly the Sauna & Steam... More
