“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

The staff were very nice and very helpful. The hotel is in a great location. The rooms were crisp and cleaned exceptionally well. The only issue I took was, as an American, they do not supply an iron and ironing board.

Very nice hotel, excellent breakfast , quite and easy access to the center- both by car and by the metro. Very clean and modern. I highly recommend it. The only weakness is the Internet connection which is not very good.

At the price i paid for my room i was expecting a lot more, the room is nice, the receptionists are ver helpful! but there is no real atmosphere from the hotel and paying that much money just for a nice room is not very good value for me, but the room was clean, and quite and breakfast was good. I also asked for a double bed nd got to singles that could not be pushed together!

The Olissippo Saldanha is a very nice hotel, I'd give it 4 stars on its amenities but am bumping my review to 5 because it's such a great value. The rooms are large, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, it's steps away from the Metro and many good dining choices. The bar is a little uninspired, and I wish there were an exercise room, but those are minor complaints. The hotel was a huge positive surprise to me, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Saldanha area.

We stayed in this brand new hotel in the heart of Lisbon.
Very nicely decorated, clean, new, everything working perfect, very friendly and efficient staff.
A unbeatable price for what you get!
We went with a rented car and had to park in a quite narrow garage and the staff helped in this.
The hotel does not have a restaurant, but there are plenty of good restaurants around, and the central location and good transport makes this very easy.
Highly recommended.

This is a new, beautiful hotel in Lisbon. It is located by the Saldanha Metro station and a block away from a good variety of restaurants. There are more choices further down the Main Street, steps away from the hotel entrance. There is also a nice grocery store a half block away. The staff, all of them, are extremely friendly and helpful with anything you may need. The neighborhood is quiet and safe; a lot of fun to walk around. The bed is firm but a quality mattress. The room has a fridge, honor bar, but has room to hold your own drinks from the grocery store! A nice little bottle of wine welcomes you, nice touch even if you aren't wine drinkers. Rooms are extremely clean and the breakfast is varied with no shortage of choices or quantity. There is a small mall and movie theater down the road and the Metro can take you to more! We had an early flight out after our week at the Olissippo Saldanha and the staff had a cab waiting for us at 3:30 AM as requested. Definitely would stay here again as we very much enjoyed our experience at this hotel and in Lisbon.

We're just back from this hotel and we can say that it is really worth the price and a great hotel to stay in:
- Extremely clean
- Very reasonable price
- Good service (including the breakfast)
- Good location with 2 supermarkets around and metro station 50 meters close

Please just be aware that if you have dinner in the centre of Lisbon, it will take 20 minutes in case you come back with metro.

I'm used to travel in 5 stars hotel all around the world on a very regular basis. Of course this hotel can't be compared to any high end hotels, but it is extremely decent for a smooth price in Lisbon.

We will come back to this hotel next time we will visit the city (Anyway we have no choice as our 5 years old son asked us to come back there in 2014 :-) ).
