“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

This hotel was absolutely first-rate - and a great bargain. The staff was professional, welcoming and attentive. Room are on the larger size by European standards and the amenities are terrific. Free wifi with strong signal. Location central and ideal for my purposes. For anything not walking distance, cabs are inexpensive in Lisbon, so it's not rally a big deal. When I return to Lisbon there is no other hotel I would consider.

A wonderful place a short walk from most downtown attractions. The staff was friendly and attentive. Lemonade in the lobby provided for a nice touch.

One downside is the lack of nice small places to it next to the hotel, but there are a bunch a short walk away.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the main street

Our 2 night stay in Lisbon was certainly enhanced by our stay at the Sofitel. From the moment we checked in you are made to feel special. The hotel hospitality was exceptional from everyone without exception. Parking was interesting but helped by Filipe. Secure and lift access direct to reception and floors, expensive but worth it. Car is not needed in Lisbon. Buses, trams and taxis plentiful.
Our reservation was a superior twin room but on check in we were upgraded to a luxury twin room...lovely surprise...it was beautifully appointed, very clean with exceptionally comfortable beds and linen.
Our dog was made welcome. The hotel is well positioned a short walk from shops, cafes, squares and lots of restaurants... A slightly longer walk to the banks of the river Tagus.
We had breakfast at local cafes nearby to experience more of Lisbon. But we had dinner one night at the hotel restaurant due to extreme tiredness after a full days sightseeing!!!. They were very good by changing their set menu to suit our own personal food choices as we do not eat meat!
The food was excellent and service good, but not sure they appeared to have many quests who did not eat meat or garlic in Portugal!
The hotel is a little bit of luxury but certainly worth paying that bit more for a wonderful experience in the centre of Lisbon. Thank you Claudia for a memorable stay!

Room Tip: Luxury room was lovely....

We stayed 2 nights in the hotel in Lisbon. We travelled with a group of 35 and enjoyed the central location. Some very "upscale" department stores are in the area. But, lots of closed businesses too. We were there during a festival that closed off the streets in front of the hotel for several blocks. On display were various agricultural and farming events. It was very crowded when we were there but felt very safe. Our room opened to the street and at times it was pretty noisy. All of our group seemed to like the hotel but the air conditioning seemed to be a little suspect. We ate several meals in the hotel and they were quite good.

Excellent location right in the middle of the city. It's located on a major street with lots of shopping and restaurants. No sightseeing destinations were more than 15-20min away.

Breakfast and wifi included.

Room Tip: Choose a street facing room if you can. It is not noisy and you get lots of sunlight and a nice view...

I would have given this hotel 5 if it wasn't for the irritating clicking noise we had in our room. We were right next to the lifts so I am not sure if it was them but it was really annoying and I couldn't sleep properly because of it.

Having said that, our room was lovely and we were lucky to get a huge balcony with table, 4 chairs and 2 sun loungers. I had emailed the hotel previously and asked for a room with a balcony - they are limited so I suggest if you want one to email the hotel prior.

I wouldn't recommend staying here if you are here for a long holiday - we were there for 5 nights and we struggled for room. There is one wardrobe with a few hangers but no other storage space so we had to live out our suitcases.

There is no iron in the room - room service will provide one however you are only allowed to keep it for 45 minutes due to 'safety reasons' - never heard that before.

The mini bar is expensive - 14 euros for a whiskey.

We got 1 free small bottle of water daily - which isn't much for 2 people.

Positives - iPod dock, free wifi which worked very well, comfortable bed and great balcony.

The staff were all really friendly and welcoming. We ate in the restaurant outside for lunch one day and it was lovely, nice sharing snacks an wine - approx. 50 euros for 4 plates, water, 1 bottle of wine & bread.

We didn't opt for breakfast as it was 50 Euros for 2.

Fab location and easy walking distance to lots of different places - the start of the open top tour bus is just 10 mins to the left of the hotel.

We paid just over 500 Euros for the 5 nights direct with the hotel so was definitely value for money.

Almost 5 star but not quite.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony
