“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Stayed for a night with my wife in a superior river view room. The room was well decorated, very confortable and with a great view - I love Lisbon! The Hotel is very central and close to everything. We walked around downtown and Chiado and went out on the town at night - great restaurants and night life. Staff were very attentive - we were offered a welcome glass of wine and a sushi amuse bouche on arrival in the evening. We did not have breakfast but the expresso machine in the room was a godsend when we got up late in the morning! Will definately recommend this hotel to all my friends!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

I stayed in the LX Boutique hotel over Christmas 2013. The hotel is located at the bottom of a hill and very easy to get to from the airport by public transport (either Aerobus #1 and go to last stop, or by underground to Cais do Sodré). The decor of the hotel is lovely and the staff were friendly and attentive.

We didn't have any of the problems with noise that some reviewers have mentioned, although I can understand why others might have. The streets just below the hotel are full of bars and clubs and although they were closed for Christmas and the weather was bad, once it got warmer I could imagine the crowds spilling out and the noise. So I'd say its something to consider.

The room itself was modest. We asked for a twin room and it was quite difficult to get any separation between the beds. They were pushed together and due to a fridge on one side and a fixed table on the other there wasn't much movement. Not a problem for my friend and I but if for example you were travelling with a colleague you might not like to be sleeping that close!

The bathroom was a little weird - separated from the beds by a glass wall. I like my privacy when I'm on the loo or showering and whilst there was some frosting on the bottom part of the wall it was still a little uncomfortable. Frosting all the way up or a curtain to pull across might have made it more comfortable.

All in all though a great little hotel. The location is good for getting around the old city and its next to key transport links for those touristy things a little further away.

We stayed there 2 nights. The elevator broke down for most of our stay and our room was in the 4th floor, so that was quite inconvenient. When we did the check out there was no one at the front desk to help us with the luggage. Wifi was slow and choppy. We asked for a double bed and they just joined the twin beds together. It's not the same!!
Location is very convenient and the in-house sushi restaurant next door is quite good. They gave us a complimentary 3 pieces of sashimi that were delicious.
Overall, an just ok experience and overpriced for what it is.

Room Tip: they have problems with the elevator so safer to chose a room in the 1st or 2nd floor.

Stayed during New Year's Eve holidays on a 3rd floor (Fado floor) room with charming river viewing. You need to request a king-size bed otherwise you will get two joined beds (believe my fault not being asked..).

The hotel is located in a very very good spot, with a friendly and young staff, the buffet breakfast is a must-do in the nice bar-restaurant where you may have an afternoon the or a light dinner or sushi as well.

I suggest to pick-up reservation promos in the hotel site to get a real value-for-money, eg. you can pay online €200-160 per night or have a discount to pay €80 per night if you book in advance. Also, get the LX card in the site to get extras as late check-out, etc.

LX hotel is definetely a good start to discover Lisbon, you can easily walk up and down to Barrio Alto, Baixa, Alfama, Praça do Comércio is at 200m, shopping center, restaurants, etc. or take tram 15 or bus to reach Belem in few minutes.

This hotel is very well placed for the visitor to explore this lovely city. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. The rooms, though bijou, are beautifully designed and comfortable. Breakfast in the restaurant is imaginatively assembled with a wide range of food to suit all tastes and sate the largest appetites. Late afternoon there is the opportunity in the foyer to indulge yourself by consuming Port with local cakes (delicious) while in the evening (7.30) you can enjoy some delicious sushi on the house in the restaurant. Beware, if you take advantage of the sushi you'll probably find yourselves enjoying a meal there! It's very good sushi.

Lovely boutique hotel, good location, all bars and restaurants are at walkingdistance.

Very helpfull crew at the reception; just ask and they will give good advice where to go or what to do.

2 bicycles available for hotelguests; there's a great ride alongside the river. Have lunch at the terrace of IBE and enjoy a bottle of Vino Verde!

In weekends you can hear people in the streets drinking and having fun, but just join the crowd outside and a have a wonderfull night out in the town!

Just go there!

Beautiful small design hotel. Both my colleague and myself were offered an upgrade at reception without even asking - very much appreciated by both of us. The room had a nice layout, some good design features and a very nice bathroom. The rooms were very well taken care of and there was virtually no noise for a perfect night sleep before our meetings started. Breakfast was good.
I would certainly consider to visit again this hotel and I have already recommended to other to do so.
