“Nice and conveniently located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Spent five days in this hotel on NYE holidays and I'm glad to report it's been a pleasant experience. This hotel is also conveniently located in the middle of Lisbon and very close to bus stops and underground stations. Fast check-in, friendly staff, it's got a business-styled ambience with modern decor and furniture; our room was not big but very cosy and quiet and had everything you can expect from a four star accommodation. Mattresses are comfortable but VERY firm so be warned if you are used to softer beds.
Breakfast buffet is rich and tasty, and is constantly refreshed with servings from the kitchen - loved it. A good selection is available for room service and the kitchen did a remarkable job when we tried it for dinner.
A small wellness center comprised of jacuzzi, sauna and steam bath is available at no charge although size is not a detail there - sauna and steam bath can only accommodate four people each and you won't stretch your legs if more than two guests are seating in the jacuzzi. Bathrobe and slippers are provided free of charge. A gym is also available. Various kinds of massages can be booked but there's only one massage room so some schedule planning is required; unfortunately despite the staff's best effort they were not able to provide us this service as it seems no masseuses were on duty between our arrival and new year's eve.

Room Tip: Nice sight from upper floors (above 5th). Front side is facing a busy street: double glazing windows...

The SANA Lisboa is a business hotel located in heart of Lisbon. The location allows for both business and pleasure travellers to take advantage of Portugal rather well but I would have to say its more of a business hotel because of its basic amenities and average breakfast service. Room service is also limited in both choice and availability. Those wanting a more flavorful experience should avoid this hotel. Also the absence of a true hotel bar makes it difficult to meet new people. Otherwise, it has high quality maid service, good bedding, excellent bath and competent staff.

Room Tip: Both sides are quite nice. Higher the room, the better the view.

I enjoyed my stay at the Sana Lisboa in Lisbon. Even though we had some scheduling issues, we had no trouble adjusting the reservation through the homepage and were happy to find everything in order at the hotel. Nice location and good breakfast!

We stayed here on a couples getaway to Lisbon.

Check-in was fast and professional. There was a daily complementary platter of fruit deposited in our room daily. Breakfast was okay as in most hotels.

Hotel was well located to the trendy area of Lisbon. It was close to the Hop on, Hop off main stop, so was convenient for a short city tour.

There are affordable eateries right in front of the hotel, with ATMs, a big modern shopping centre and cinema hall, etc quite close by the hotel.

Try to avoid meals in the hotel, as there a quite nice and affordable places not far.

Tip: We made friends with the very friendly taxi drivers in Lisbon. We found that most of them doubled as tour guides and we were taken to dine in lovely places where the locals ate and listened to Fado. We especially loved our day tour along the coast and to the historic city, and the quaint local restaurants in small villages where we stopped to eat. All arranged by our friendly taxi driver. And it did not cost as much as we expected for the value.

Attention; The hotel will offer the usual touristic attraction restaurants with Fado music. We tried it out, but found it mostly a show place put up especially for tourists and not totally authentic, and without locals. We found our own way around, helped along by extremely friendly taxi drivers. :)

This hotel is great for location. The service is good and the rooms incredibly spacious, A great getaway hotel or even for a business stay.
A good distance to walk to all major attractions and restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the main street are quieter.
