“Great room for the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We had two rooms - one Superior room and one Deluxe. Both rooms were clean, modern and spacious with a good bathroom, TV, kettle, large wardrobe, fridge , aircon & safe. Take your own teaspoon and teabags if you're a tea lover (just had green tea & coffee). We were on 4th floor and no problems with wifi or noise. Shutters & windows are effective at shutting out light and sound. Small supermarket approx 5 mins from the hotel (going opposite direction from Praca de Marques de Pombal) sells water & general stuff. Plenty of eateries approx 10 -15 mins away down the Ave Da Liberdade. Metro stations nearby and lots of buses going from just of M.de Pombal. Staff were helpful and arranged taxi for us early morning to go to airport. Cafe downstairs was handy. Would stay here again if in Lisbon.

Residencial Vila Nova is at a walking distance from Praça do Marquês de Pombal where you have a metro station, a stop for all the touristic buses and the bus that goes to Freeport (the biggest outlet mall in Portugal).
It's also a walking distance to Cortes Ingles (around 10 min walk) and to Avenida da Libertad where you have all the high-end brands. It is also very close to the airport; we took a taxi from the hotel to the airport for around 12 Euros.
However, the area is empty at night, and there aren't many good restaurants around. So it was kind of scary to walk at night.
The hotel itself is average: room is small but very clean, bathroom is extremely small and the noise coming from the reception at night is very annoying (our room was on the 3rd floor, just in front of the reception).
There is a good restaurant in the same building of the hotel which offers good breakfast at affordable prices.
Not sure I would stay there again!

Room Tip: Not close to the help desk!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We stayed in a standard room during August. The room was clean and well presented, but it is a small room - a walkway will be blocked wherever you place your suitcase. Having read the reviews I expected this. The room included a hairdryer and an invaluable air conditioning unit for the summer heat. There is a safe in the room but they charge you 2 euros for the code which I felt was a little harsh. The wooden shutters keep any street noise out and I heard little of the other guests in the hotel. The staff on the desk provided answers to questions. WiFi is free but doesn't work in all rooms and so you have to go into the lobby area to use it.

The hotel is 2 minutes down the road from the Marquess of Pombal Square and the same for the metro, which allows for a quick 5-10 minute journey into the centre. There is a small supermarket if you go right out of the hotel and walk for a 5 minutes. There are restaurants in the area (near the hospital) but I would highly recommend the American music burger restaurant which is down the road on the first left.

The main issue I had at this hotel was that I had my contact lenses in a shopping bag next to my suitcase. The cleaner threw these out by accident (though she denied this) and though the hotel paid for a weeks worth, it is still an inconvenience I didn't need on my holiday. This was a shame as other than this, the hotel provided all that I expected. No frills but a room with the basics.

Room Tip: A room 304 or below in the standard rooms is more likely to have WiFi access

The hotel is of good proximity to all attractions.. mostly by walking distance.. it is neat and clean and of modern interior. pricing was very very affordable considering where it lays.
Don't expect extended facilities OR luxury stuff.. just straight to point facilities :)

We chose this hotel as we had just one night to spend in Lisbon. We wanted to be close to the metro and pay less. Price/quality ratio is better in this area compared to the touristic center (which is half an hour by walk). But if you are there for touristic purposes, you might choose to pay more and stay in Baxia, Chiado or Rossio. This hotel fitted to our expectations. It was clean, modern and comfortable. The price was reasonable. The gentleman in the reception called a taxi for us early in the morning and was kind. The only negative thing was that we could not find any open supermarket after 22.00 around the hotel. So if you decide to stay there, make sure that you do your shopping earlier or from the touristic center.

Room Tip: We stayed at a room with balcony

We stayed in a gorgeous room, nice modern design. Metro station at the end of the street (1min Walk), 20 min walk to the centre but plenty of amenities around. There's a bar next door that sells bottles of Sagres (Local beer) for €1 and has little snacks, very cheap. Free Wifi and lots of TV channels. En suite Jacuzzi and massive bathroom that was amazing. Bed was huge and comfy with some really soft blankets. Huge room with french doors that opened out onto street view. Nice star on ceiling.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Deluxe room and it really made the trip!

My husband and I decided to go here, based on reviews from this site. When we came here, our first poor impression left the receptions. She wasn't so welcome, it was like she regretted the moment we stepped in through that door.
When we went to our room, it was the same as it was from the pictures, but sooooo small. Wide lens does the magic, so a room small like this one looks huge. :) The shower was a battle for my husband, because (guess) small. There were a bit fungus on the wall plates, but that was the only sanitary flaw. The cleaning lady was great! Our bed was always ready, clean towels, clean room. No complaints for her.
But the reception, oh the reception! So, we came to Lisbon for the first time. We got all the information, and the maps, but of course you will expect from the reception to give you some advices. They did try, but all of they guidelines were wrong. They really don't know their city as much as they should (they do work on a reception). The only person who knew something, was the moody girl, but with her dying voice she was killing our mood so we gave up of asking her any thing when she worked.
One more thing why we decided to stay here was the wireless. Well, a lot of them said that it was excellent. Well, our wasn't!
We were at the end of a hall and there was no signal. Only two rooms that are close to the reception had the best signal, the rest was terrible or no signal at all. I had to walk to the reception to get the connection. So, wireless is terrible!

The apartment is close to all stations, and that is great. Downstairs you have the best pastry shop. We went there every morning for breakfast.

Lisbon is a great city, and you will enjoy it regarding the small bumps on the way as we had.

Room Tip: Only rooms close to the reception are larger, and have wireless.
