Modern, clean, simple hotel very near to the Airport, but definitely not a walking distance. Upon arrival we found easier to catch a taxi than looking for the shuttle bus, and for the 3-min. long ride with 3 big luggage we payed 10 €. (The driver was not too happy to have such a short ride, so he might have overcharged us but we did not care, as the price was similar to the shuttle's.) Shuttle bus service on the way back to the airport from the hotel is very comfortable, it starts at 5 a.m., for an earlier transfer receptionists can call a taxi.
Terminal 1 (for regular flights) and 2 (for EasyJet flights) are a bit far from each other, if you make a mistake and must change terminal, you must take the free Aerobus between them (goes every 10-15 minutes and takes a 2-minute ride) - if you are not sure,about your terminal, ask the hotel shuttle bus driver, he knows where to go.
The room's size is average, the king size bed is comfortable enough. Although the hotel's children policy allows children to sleep and have breakfast free of charge (under 18, which is quite a generous offer), beware that the 3rd bed in the room is an awful one, does not ensure a comfortable sleep, and it is rather noisy, so every single movement of the child on the bed wakes up the parents. If you want to avoid this, ask for a connecting room solution, but then you must pay for 2 rooms, obviously. The window in the rooms can be slightly opened, Aircon can be switched on/off by the guests, though temperature setting is not available, but. the temperature in our room was just OK. Some rooms look on silent streets with office buildings, other rooms look on the noisy highway, but the windows are excellent sound isolators if you close them. The bathroom is OK and seems clean enough.
In our experience room price is definitely cheaper by booking directly on the Intercontinental Hotel Group's website, even by chosing a flexible rate.
Breakfast is offered freely for every hotel guest from 6. a.m. It offers a buffet of cold cuts, cheese, a rich selection of breads and cookies/muffins, cereals, jam, honey and fresh fruits. Simple, but convenient, the restautrant is clean and friendly. If your departure is earlier, you can get a free coffee in the bar, and an automatic snack dispenser in the lobby offers cheap sandwitches, fruits, snacks and drinks (a couple of Euros each item). There is no minibar in the room, so you can buy a small bottle of water right from the dispenser for 1,50 €. There is a 3-course menu in the hotel for 12 € if you wish to eat during the day, or Pizza Hut order is another option.
Receptionists are professional, they assist you in everything from check-in to early coffee serving.
If you need to spend a night between your flights in Lisbon, do not hesitate to chose this hotel, it is a good value for money for a short night sleep.
