“"The Famous Hotel Lisboa"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

This hotel was chosen by our company to be my accomodation in my 3days incentive trip to macau. It was an incentive trip therefore, my expectation for it was it is "one of the best" and i'm not dissappointed. If you are a Filipino like me, staying here will not be very difficult for you because you can find Filipinos working in here. Their conceirge was a Filipino so there is a certain feeling of being at home. During our tour, we have a bus as our mode of transportation and buses have no parking space infront of the hotel so we usually enter at the back of the hotel.. But who cares, the back entrance was already a grand entrance.. When you enter from the back entrance you will first be astounded by a giant beautiful chandelier and a stair which will make you feel like a royalty.. Everything from check in was already taken care by our tour guide so everything went so smoothly.

The elevators are also so royalty like.. but it stopped there.. the corredors and the rooms seemed to be just the same as the usual hotels I have checked in. No view from the window.. a little of the lighted casinos. Also I have checked their list of amenities.. sad to say.. no gym.. not that I wanted to workout.. Just checking... so gym fanatics.. not good for you..

As an example of gaudy Macau tackiness, the Lisboa is fine, with black marble and chandeliers greeting you in the lobby for checkin. Perhaps I just got unlucky with my room, but it was a step back to the 70s, complete with lingering cigarette smoke, hard beds and cheap furnishings. That said the bathroom had been renovated and featured a really intriguing computerised shower/bath set up. Location-wise, it's very good, a relatively short walk to St Paul's and away from the non-stop tack of the strip. Even better is to take an even shorter walk across the walkway to the Grand Lisboa, where there are some very good places to eat (I recommend the deli in particular if you're after a filling Western-style meal). Or perhaps a bit further to the Wynn where it's far classier.

Facilities are limited, with a small indoor pool, various restaurants (including a good buffet with indifferent service) and no gym. As others have noted, internet and mini-bar included are good features that may help offset the general tack. In general service seemed fine and unobtrusive.

I think if you're planning on a day or 2 of non-stop gambling and won't be seeing the inside of your room much then the Hotel Lisboa will suit but if you're after a few days of sightseeing and something relaxing, I would not recommend (or rather, I'd be looking for a larger more modern room). For the money you pay, it's fine, otherwise, it's merely ok bordering on "blah".

This hotel is very centrally located. There are free shuttles to take you to the Chinese border or the ferry station. It's just a 10-15 min. walk to Senado Square. From there, it's another 5 min. walk to the Ruins of St. Paul's.
We had a breezy check-in. We asked for a non-smoking room and were pleasantly upgraded to a superior room! They even had our room treated to rid it of any cigarette smells. The room was big and clean, though the design was a bit (?!) dated. The free minibar adds a welcoming touch to our stay.
The hotel doesn't look so big from the outside, but it was designed in a maze-like way that one can easily get lost in it. We were still getting lost on our 3rd day's stay! (lol)
The great location, plus the nice, friendly staff of this hotel made our stay in Macau a very pleasant one.

We chose this hotel because we wanted to experience the chinese/portugese Macau and not the new Vegas style resorts. The lobby is filled with gorgeous Chinese artifacts and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The complementary soft drinks in the mini bar and generous bathroom toiletries are a welcome touch. But if you need your morning cup of coffee,carry some sachets with you. The beverage maker only has different varieties of tea on offer! Check in was painless and the staff are very courteous and helpful.The Hotel is huge - so prepare to get lost a lot. Fortunately there are staff around to guide you. Language can be a bit of a problem - particularly in the dining areas. We wound up paying HK $100 extra each for the buffet dinner due to lack of proper communication.

I must particularly commend the speed and efficiency with which the Hotel couriered some items I had left behind by mistake. to me.

The central location and frequent shuttle bus services make it very convenient to get around .

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are smoking - so make sure you specify that you want a non smoker if you are parti...

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in April 2012. First, the checkin procedure is very very lengthy due to only a handful people at the reception (2 people to be precise). For us It was compensated automatically when were upgraded to superior rooms! The view of the hotel is nice, our room view had Hotel Grand Lisboa on the show!

Secondly, the bathrooms are very small but again, it is compensated by the amenities in the shower cubicle/Jacuzzi cubicle.

Free knick-nacks out of the mini bar but no presence of coffee maker made me furious!

The best part is the central location of the hotel, everything is at walking distance... shopping, casinos etc.

All in all, being a hotels buff, would stay again if had no other option!

We stayed here for two nights in March 2012. The hotel has good rooms, clean, nice old worldly charm, great bathroom toiletries (really nice, worth mentioning separately) and quite courteous service (whoever could speak English, that is).

we did not try the food so we dont know. however, since prostitution is legal in Macau, this lobby of the hotel is full of women propositioning men most of the time,and while I am not passing a value judgement, one does feel awkward passing through, specially if you also happen to be another woman.

The hotel has its own casino and is situated centrally. In any case all hotels in Macau have their own transport to and from the ferry stations so transport is not a problem.

It is a good hotel, provided you dont mind the ambience.
