“Highly recommended hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

It was with trepidation that I ended up staying at this hotel – on paper it appeared inviting – new contemporary design, modern, clean and catering for the business end of the market.
However my concern was about the distance from Lisbon as this hotel is in the Almada district – which seemed a little much having to catch a tram/bus then a ferry just to get to Lisbon proper.
However this was soon forgotten as the journey to and from the hotel was actually pretty enjoyable in itself – the locals are so friendly, the trip especially across the harbour was quick and regular and the view enjoyable – but you do have to factor this into your decision if staying here
The hotel itself couldn’t be faulted the staff were near on perfect, friendly helpful and very obliging, the rooms comfortable, spacious and tastefully designed,, the superior rooms especially had refreshments available 24/7, and Wi-Fi was included in the price. All in all a great stay in a wonderful, warm and inviting city.

Room Tip: If possible try and secure the superior / vip rooms

Stayed at this great hotel for a week and I can't say enough about it! Firstly though, if you are a party of 3 as we were, there are no triple rooms at the standard rate, so a camper bed is provided which was a bit of a pain but at the same time, I'm not complaining as this is what we signed up for!

Firstly, the hotel itself is bright and modern, spotlessly clean and with great staff. It is within easy reach of Lisbon city centre, just hop on the number 3 metro (at the bottom of the hill beside the hotel), get off at the last stop and hop on the ferry over the river. The ferry is less than €3 return and takes about 7 minutes. Then it's a straight walk to the major attractions.

Almada itself is just lovely, a good sized, hilly town with great shops and cafes. If you're really up for shopping, get a taxi from the hotel reception to the Almada Forum. It costs about €10 and is well worth it! A great shopping centre with all the big brands! Loved it!! Hotel receptionist organised taxis for us, a great plus when you don't speak the language!

Breakfast at the hotel, in my opinion, was perfect! A hot and cold buffet, good coffee and lots to choose from. Breakfast is served until 10.30. In the evenings, the hotel restaurant serves fantastic meals at unbeatable prices! €7.50 for a soup starter, steak and fries (for example) and dessert. There are other, even cheaper options. Could not fault the food nor the service. A glass of wine comes in at about €2 and bottled beer around the same.

I loved the hotel and the location also and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone! A great stay.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The hotel is in Almada on the south side of the Tejo river. It is easy to get to central Lisbon by tram and ferry or tram and suburban train. The room was modern, clean and comfortable with large screen TV with many Portuguese and foreign channels, including BBC World News and BBC Entertainment. Many other channels are in English. The bed was comfortable with choice of two pillows, or both! The hotel served an excellent breakfast, included in the price with hot and cold choices. In addition there was an evening restaurant which served a first class buffet dinner. On the second evening the buffet was not available and the choice was limited. If your aim is to visit Lisbon for a reasonable cost then this is a good choice hotel, if you just want an overnight stop it is also easy to get to by car and overnight parking is free.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear do not get the afternoon sun, which does warm the room (although the aircon is goo...

Would not recomend this hotel for holiday makers unless it's an overnight stop.
There is nothing close by to do or see. It's all a taxi ride away.
Having said that for the business user it's fine.
I stayed on the 7th floor, which I think is a business floor, tea, coffee, juice, biscuits, cakes right outside the lift before you even get to your room.
Beds comfortable, pillows great, room spacious, bathroom lovely, TV OK (a few english channels), Mini bar stocked Coffee maker in the room, nice coffee.
Breakfast nice, plenty of selection. The bar was a little understaffed in the evenings so kept having to go to the reception to get served. It can be popular with coaches of tourists doing a stop over, on route, so get into dinner before them if you want any of the evening buffet left. Food was good and wine great (even the house stuff).
You are almost mid way between the coast and the city so it might suit you if you intend to drive to both over a weekend.
All in all, a good hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get on the 7th floor.

Almada Business hotel was great choice for holidays in Lisboa! First of all- close to Costa de Caparica, one of the most beautiful and widest beaches in Europa. Also perfectly situated close to the El rio Tajo and Puente de 25 Abril and Cristo Rey. Easy reachable of various means of transportation- metro, train even ferry across the river.
Room and bathroom was big and comfortable. Breakfast was ok, just a little bit more of variety of food would be great. Staff was helpful and friendly, english and spanish speaking. Building is new, well maintained and modern designed.
We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. It is great not only for business but perfect for holidays in Lisboa!

This hotel turned out to be a perfect choice for our stay in Lisbon, during Easter holidays. The hotel, though named Business Hotel, is perfect for short family vacation. The building is new, well kept and maintained, simple and modern-style furnished. Rooms are rather spacious and really clean, bathrooms included. We were really surprised about how quiet the Hotel was, in spite of having rather big groups of tourists, coming and going with buses. We managed to have, booking quite in advance, two communicating rooms (414+415) and this is a really good solution for families with kids. The staff is really friendly and helpful, though discreet. Breakfast is great, continental style, never missing fresh peeled fruits and local pies and tarts. The dinner buffet is also very good and convenient, all courses at your disposal. Surroundings are nice residential areas, where we felt safe even taking trams late evenings. The tram station is really 3 minutes walking from the Hotel. In 10 minutes tram takes you down to the river boat terminal (Cachilias) where, within another 15 minutes, you reach Cais do Sodrè, the main Lisbon public transportation hub. A tip for runners: don’t miss a run to Cristo Rei early morning.

Booked after reading raving reviews. What a disappointment! Most staff except for one were unhelpful, room was very small, extremely noisy - traffic on highway, location - not easily accessible. Took a ferry back from Lisbon, took ages to get a taxi back to hotel- staff at terminal did not speak English so not very helpful. Food was awful, definitely would not recommend a stay!
