I recently visited Lisbon for a week with my sister and stayed at the San Malhoa Hotel. The hotel is only a short transfer from the airport and is close to a metro station from where you can access the city and the train services to the Portuguese Riviera e.g. Cascais and the ferry service to the Cristo Rei statue....

Stayed three nights in Sana Malhoa Hotel in Lisbon. This was my third stay in this hotel and it represents excellent value. The rooms are well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. A reasonably sized bathroom came with a very good power shower. The buffet breakfast was excellent with a large selection of fresh fruits, breads & cooked food.... More

The hotel was clean and tidy, with good access to the city and airport. The Airbus2 [airport/city shuttle about eu3.50 each way] runs past the door, with the bus stop about 100 metres away. The 'Yellow Bus' hop-on hop-off bus also passes and uses the same bus stop. Breakfast buffet was very good, as was the meal we had in... More

While this hotel is slightly far from downtown, I picked this hotel for convenience with our rental car. It's a mostly business hotel, but we were some of the tourists there. Good breakfast buffet, get the room rate with breakfast. I believe the bus tour companies stop by, but we walked through the subway from -3 floor garage. 5 min... More

Lots of shopping at the large El Corte Ingles Department store not too far away. Not many restaurants in the area. The buffet at the hotel was very good. Our room was on the front and a little noisy from the traffic below. I would ask for a room on the back side of the hotel. Not that close to... More

Very good hotel, very good value for money. Located in hotel and bank district near Zoo and main areas of Lisbon. Nearby there are many hotels, banks and a couple of shopping areas. Rooms are good and as described earlier, I recommend it.

Hotel was clean. Location is good. Service was good. Food was very good and reasonably priced. All in all, except for the VERY HARD beds, it was a very nice stay. The Metro was about a 15 minute walk. I was provided with a wheelchair to use during the day, but the wheels often ran flat.

I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at SANA Malhoa. This was the venue of my marketing masterclass and at first I was reluctant to stay there. Now I don't understand why. The room worked. The service overall was good. The inroom dining was surprisingly good. Internet was fast and stable. And the morning breakfast was also good. The hotel... More

We had spent three days at this place. The hotel is located close to the metro, and is about 10 minutes drive away from Lisbon center (also close to the airport - which makes a bit of a noise). Rooms and service are quite good, our stay was smooth (only that WiFi was sometimes unreliable). The interior is a bit... More
