How far is Marriott Lisbon from City Centre?

Hi Everyone

I won an ebay auction to stay at the Lisbon Marriott, i've heard its in the middle of nowhere. Can anyone tell me exactly how far it is from the tourist/city centre? Can you get a bus/metro to the city centre easily? Is thier shops/restaurants and stuff around the area the hotel is in.

Also, can you tell me what the weather is usually like in March?

Thanks in advance.........

It's out north of the city centre; see their website

marriott.com/hotels/…

It's 800 metres (ie about half a mile) from the Jardim Zoologico metro station (not called Sete Rios which is what the Marriott webste says!) which will get you into the city centre in 12 - 15 minutes max.

It's near the main Hospital (Santa Maria) and several universities. You have to walk a bit to the nearest metro station (Cidade Universitaria), 10 minutes. There's a bus stop right in front. No shops, though. he location could be better, but it's not that bad.

Hi,

We had 2 eBay stays at the Lisboa Marriott last year. The hotel is not fantastic (rooms are quite small for a Marriott) -- the breakfast buffett is excellent! Concierge and check-in staff can be quite surly -- but there are exceptions. There are no stores anywhere really close to the hotel. But you can take a bus from the hotel to the metro stop (Zoo) and there is a very large shopping mall just another couple of metro stops away from the Zoo station. The Metro is a fast ride to the city center.

Enjoy your stay.

BTW, the hotel is within walking distance (but just barely) from the Gulkenian Foundation, which is a brilliant museum. Entrance is/was free on Sundays.
