Hotel Dom Afonso Henriques
Ranked #152 of 254 Hotels in Lisbon
Reviewed December 31, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. I booked my stay back in August based off of TripAdvisor reviews; but when I looked at another review website only a week before my travel-- I became worried about staying. Absolutely no reason to have worried. The staff was VERY friendly; the room (401) was large with a balcony! Approx. 8-10 euros to get to/from airport/hotel. Metro line (red/green) with a 5-minute walk (downhill, so walking back up to the hotel is necessary). The breakfast had something for everyone; breads, cereals, eggs/sausage, juices/coffee/tea, etc. The cost (3-night stay to include New Years Eve) was very reasonable; included breakfast daily.

Only negative is the WiFi connection is spotty (sometimes non-existent from the 4th floor up); was informed that the hotel is working on getting each floor accessibility. There is a common room on the 1st floor that WiFi works without hesitation!

I would DEFINITELY stay at this hotel on my next trip to Lisbon! Beautiful city, great hotel!

Enjoy!

We have stayed twice now that this hotel. We have used it as an overnight stop on our way south. It is exceptional value for money and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is within walking distance to two metro stations, so a trip to downtown is very simple and cheap. They recommended the italian restaurant opposite, Pepe & Oliva, which was great.

Will not hesitate to stay again, when we visit lisbon for a longer stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in 503 which was quiet and comfortable.

We had a lovely stay here. Our room was spotlessly clean, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The room was really nice, it looked like it had recently been refurbished. The staff were really helpful and friendly. My husband injured his foot and they brought some ice to the room for us to put on his foot. The next day we bought a big bag of ice and they were happy to let us keep it in their freezer and on request they would bring us some ice. So they were very helpful indeed! The location is handy for the metro station, Alameda, it's about 10 minutes into the centre town and about 20 minutes to the airport. The breakfast is pretty reasonable at just €6.

Room Tip: We stayed at the back of the hotel and we had a balcony. I think it is probably quieter than the fro...

It's a nice quite and clean hotel 5 Metrostations away from the city. We stayed on the 5th floor. We find the hotel on bookings.com but we had a car so we booked directly on the web page of the hotel because it includes parking and breakfast. If you reserve on bookings.com or other second sellers you have to pay extra for the parking place. The receptionist was a nice young guy who spoke english very well and you can feel that he loves his city :) he couldn't stop talking about lisboa and the things we should visit it was a warm welcome to lisboa and he provide us with good ideas.

The walk to the Metrostation is easier downhill so you walk left when you leave the hotel till the Metrostation Alameda and then use the metro 5 stations till Rossio. If you don't want to walk up the hill when you return just change the metro on Alameda-Station and walk to the redline Station and use that for one station to Olaias then you can walk downhill to the hotel.

On our walk to the Metrostation Alameda downhill we find a nice and cheap Portuguese Snack-Bar
in the street "Rua Actor Isidoro" on the right side so just leave the Jardim da Alameda on the left. In the street you'll find it on the left side.

We spent 3 nights in October 2012 in this hotel. It's 2-star hotel with modern-equipped, comfortable rooms. The hotel has favorable location between two metro stations: Olaias and Alameda (5 minutes walk). It's easy to get there from airport (red metro line from Airport to Alameda station) and it's convenient to get to the main atractions of the city (by red or green metro lines from Alameda station). Additionally the rooms are quiet but the biggest asset of the hotel are their employees. The staff is very friendly and always ready to help. They can speak at least 3 languages. We comunicated in English but I've heard the staff could speak fluent Spanish and German as well.

Nice hotel at a very convenient location, 2 minutes away from 2 metro lines with direct connections to city center, oriente, airport etc. 10 minutes with the car to the airport.
Rooms are clean, modern, nothing broken. No problems with noise from the street or the airport.
Room view not really nice, nothing special to look at ;)
The hotel itself is a little noisy, some technical sounds like the elevator and drainage can be heard a little to good.
Price was good in the low season.

A pleasant hotel run by friendly and professional staff. I arrived early and was able to check into my room straight away. The room was a standard size but had good storage space and a work desk. The decor was modern, obviously recently refurbished too a high standard. I was also able to connect to WiFi in my room. Sadly, no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but there was a bar on the 1st floor.

Breakfast was a very pleasant experience. Providing a good choice of food and drinks. I would recommend the terrace on the 7th floor with great views of Lisbon.

The hotel, however, is located at the top of a steep hill, which proved difficult when transporting cases from the nearby Metro station to the Hotel.

I would strongly recommend the hotel, and if I am in Lisbon again I would happily stay there.
