“Beautiful, delicious food, great location, lovely people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This modern design hotel is filled with beauty and humorous twists. It's located in the heart of an old district of Lisbon that allows easy walking to numerous sights and many dozens of restaurants within a perimeter of a few blocks. It's in a flat area easy for all to walk in but near hills that lead to interesting buildings, museums, a castle, etc.. The breakfast bar from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. has variety that will suit many nationalities and the food is fresh, well prepared, and delicious. The staff are lovely people, eager to help or provide information. The bar also serves light food in the afternoon/evenings such as salads, soups, & sandwiches, nicely prepared and fresh. Staff recommendations were outstanding--they sent us to high quality places with reasonable prices. The seafood in this area is to die for.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street are quieter but the ones on the street sides provide lovely views and are...

I only stayed one night at the hotel, but I absolutely loved it!
Prime location, top service, very clean and an absolutely comfortable bed, which I needed after a long dayof travelling.
The breakfast was served from 7am to 11am. As I already had done my sightseeing in the morning, I only got back to the hotel at 10:30. The breakfast selection then was just as good as 8 o'clock.

Brilliant central location, close to everything. Wonderful friendly and helpful staff who gave good advice about nearby facilities, restaurants, etc, as well as interesting tourist options for elsewhere in Portugal. Perfect breakfast - very large choice. Nice bar for pre-dinner drinks. Rooms vary in size and outlook on different floors, and on the lower floors are a bit small, but otherwise perfect. Very creative decor throughout hotel, with different themes on different floors. This will be my first stop whenever I'm in Lisbon.

We stayed in this very centrally-located hotel and our room had a fantastic view in two different directions through French doors. We were torn about having coffee in one of the many cages or enjoying a nespresso and the view from our room. The decor of our room was very different even the bright pink loo paper!!! Loved it The staff were very helpful organising breakfast to be delivered to our room for our early departure. The central location made it so easy to just stroll the mall but it was not far to walk to the tram for Belem. We would stay here again and recommend it to all. The huge bed was so comfortable and breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: A room on a higher floor is a must.

This hotel was excellent! The staff was incredible. We accidentally booked our stay on the wrong weekend...when we arrived the guys at the front desk were able to get us their last room. We thought we were going to get the broom closet but it was a fantastic room with king size bed. I booked through hotel.com and purchased the non-refundable room rate. I was thought I was going to have to double pay to stay their but the front desk quickly called hotel.com and was able to switch the weekend without an additional charge to us. The property itself could not be more central. Its in a super busy square but inside the hotel and our room it was peaceful and quiet. The included breakfast was awesome too! We would definitely come back here...highly recommended.

Fantastic small hotel in a great location on the edge of Rossio Square. Close to the Aerobus stop & Metro. Good choice of cafes and restaurants close by. Differently themed rooms on each floor. Comfortable room with good quality bedding, Nespresso machine & air conditioning that worked! Staff were very helpful & friendly. The breakfast was so very good, with a great choice of hot & cold, sweet & savoury food and good choice of fruit juices & other drinks. The bar overlooked the square and had a good choice of drinks & cocktails! A great place to go at the end of the day! Should we return to Lisbon, we would definitely stay at the Internacional Design Hotel.
