SANA Malhoa Hotel was a great experience for me. First off, the staff was all very polite, from the check-in to the check-out, including those working in the adjacent restaurant. The hotel space and decoration was lovely. I was very impressed by the room which had a very big bed, a regular work table and a smaller 'coffee style' table... More

This was our second time here and even better than the first. The only downside is that it's not exactly city centre but having said that, taxis are cheap and the metro runs close by. It is within easy walking distance of the Gulbenkian Museum (amazing - don't miss it) and El Corte Ingles. Rooms are modern, pleasant and well-appointed... More

Stayed for 2 nights in May. Close to airport and a 10 minute walk to metro, its basically an out of centre hotel near to a few other hotels (novotel etc). I was on a tourist trip and from that point of view nothing special to say as the location is not very pleasant for that, but metro is good... More

I was staying 3 night for a seminar. I slept well. The wifi was not working at all the first night, during the day the signal in the meeting room was rather week. The food was of average quality. The location is not the best in the city but the center is not far away (8 minutes by taxi)

We were there for 4 days last week. It is a nice hotel with a convenient location, just 15 mn away by subway from the heard of the city and about 30 mn by subway from the airport. Nice staff, confortable bar, very clean and comfy rooms, and large choice for breakfast. I just would have like a little more... More

I was in this hotel for 9 nights for a business trip. Internet didn't work during any of the nights and not did it for all my colleagues (about 50 people). Staff just said that they couldn't do anything. Beds were also old any not so comfortable. Not serious for a hotel on its class and price.

Anyone who travels the world knows that she will have to recalibrate her expectations, in function of the standards of the country visited. Portugal has a wonderful and warm tradition of hospitality which tries to compensate for a lack of organization. In such a context, the Sana Malhoa can be rated as very good, for a seminar place. We were... More

Big hotel with very friendly staff, spacious clear and comfortable rooms. Ok breakfast. For me however it lacked identity and character which is a pity in Lisbon a city full of culture and character. Other disadvantages were rather far from the city, no coffee/tea maker in the room and internet had problems (difficult to log in, very slow).

All areas of Lisbon easy accessible as hotel is just a 300 metres away of tube station Praça de España, which is one the most central tubestations in Lisbon, so Lisbon can be explored without spending too much time in travelling. Wi-Fi very good & fast, superb breakfast is served and staff is professional, friendly & skilled. Rooms are very... More
