Reviewed August 9, 2012

We have stayed twice in this Hotel in two months, the rooms are excellent, the staff are very friendly, the brekfast is limited, there is plenty of parking around the hotel, its about 5 min walk to the beach, good restaraunts near to the hotel. the hotel has access to a pool in another hotel which is 5 min walk away. we will be going back there a gain soon

Room Tip: Rooms with a view to the front that looks at the casino, we have found to be the best.

This hotel is relatively inexpensive compared to other hotels located in downtown Lisbon. The train ride from Lisbon to Estoril is about 25 minutes and then you are 5 minutes away from the train station to your hotel. There are several restaurants near the hotel. There is a huge casino in front of the hotel but it was very quiet during our stay. The hotel offers an alternative for those interested in a quiet evening after a hard day walking through Lisbon since it is not located in the city center. In addition, you can go for a nice walk along the beach and get to Cascais, which is a beautiful town located only a few kilometers north of Estoril. There are many interesting places to see in Cascais as well as many good restaurants.

I got this place at the last minute and booked it at excellent rates. When I got to the airport an announced it to the Taxi Driver he said, oh wow, nice!!. (However I suggest that you travel from Lisbon Airport to Estoril where the Hotel is, by Bus, As its only 20 minutes away...and it cost me 60Euro !!..ouch!!... Anyway the hotel is opposite the largest Casino I have ever seen in my life !!!... and plenty of restaurants of quality around, decently priced. The staff are impeccable and talk about cleanliness!!..wow!!.. The room was excellently decked out with a Balcony!!.. Rooms maticulously cleaned and replenished with everything!!... However no kettle or beverages there!. Restaurant for brekfast very well laid out, and everything there. A great place to stay, I will certainly be going back !!

Room Tip: Make sure room faces the Casino, as you can see the Sea from there, and get the 4th Floor (top)

Stayed for 9 nights in March 2011. Hotel is ideally situated for transport link to Lisbon.
Railway Station is about 5 minutes walk away. When there the trains were on strike a couple of times and apparently there is no bus service to Lisbon( according to the tourist info. office).
The few Restaurants in the locality are in my opinion of poor quality and pricey, maybe due to the proximity of the Casino.
The best Restaurants we found are in Cascais which is a pleasant 15-20 min stroll along the Seafront. There is plenty of choice and prices range to suit all pockets.

There is a limited menu of meals at the Alvorada but we cannot vouch for there quality as we never ate there, apart from the Breakfast which is pretty much continental plus scrambled eggs and a saveloy type sausage.

Room Tip: Smoking permitted in Bar and Guest Rooms

I've stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. A huge room on the 4th floor with a great seaview balcony. Clean room, which was cleaned perfectly every day. Some of the staff was friendly and helpful, others were less motivated to help. Breakfast was ok for my needs.
The hotel is right in the center of Estoril across the street of the Casino. This means bright night and rather loudish all night long and every day of the week. This didn't bother me, but probably not the right hotel if you don't sleep very deep. Second negative point for people who are sensitive to electric smog: The hotel has six cellphone antennas on its rooftop.
I've booked the hotel through Tripadvisor/hotels.com and the great deal made the hotel good value for money. Recommendation therefore depending of the price one pays.

5 nights for a birthday trip
very big room and comfortable beds and a balcony all for a very small price booked on line well in advance
good advice from english speaking receptionists on buses trips etc
enough restaurants in 10 mins walk to have variety
only fault a long walk up hill for a couple of retired folk a car would have been great
fair breakfast for the price
all very clean and the lift a big bonus
