“Great hotel, great staff, great location”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had a wonderful weekend in Lisbon celebrating my friend's birthday. The LX hotel is just gorgeous and in a fantastic location, although be prepared to walk up some steep hills in Lisbon! It is in the Bairro Alto/Chiado district and close to the trams and metro stations.

When we arrived they had upgraded our room to a river view which was lovely. The staff were always extremely friendly and very helpful with suggestions of sights, restaurants & bars which all turned out to be excellent choices. Our bedroom was modern & decorated very nicely.

Most afternoons there was port and pasteis (amazing custard tarts - a local must-try) left in reception for the guests to help themselves which was a really nice touch after a long day walking around the city.

I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Lisbon.

Room Tip: We had booked a Xssential Backstreet room on a very good deal and were upgraded to a river front roo...

Dear Mel,

Thank you for your kind words. It's great to feel we were able to overcame your expectations and provide you an unique Lisbon Xperience. Your kind words will be passed on to all the staff!

About the custard tarts, it's a traditional portuguese pastry called "Pastel de Nata". I'm happy you liked it!

Hope to see you soon on the lx boutique hotel. On your next visit don't hesitate to contact me or the hotel directly and get access to our special rates not available online.

Kind Regards

Great location close to the metro, and to Barrio Alto and Chaido with restaurants and shopping. Would def. livve in this area again or maybe in Chaido but not in the north were a lot of the other hotels are located.
Nicely decorated room, large bed and a fresh bathroom. Friendly staff and good services.

Maybe the bed was a bit hard. The breakfast tasted good but not that many choices. The safety box was very small (fits an iPad but not a computer). No conditioner (only a combined shampoo-conditioner) but good quality products. For 5 "stars" i miss the little extra, the unexpected.

Dear Viktoria,

Thank you for your reviews and tips. It was great to have you with us and we'll pass your kind words to all the staff. We're actually a 4star hotel, even though with a 5star service and quality!

On your next visit to Lisbon you must check in to out Riverfront rooms. A river sunset on a City prime location is unique. Contact me or the hotel directly and get access to a special rate.

I stayed in lx for 4 nights and the room was superb. I found the room was so convenient, clean, everything was just perfect. I recommended the guest to stay here since the receptionist really helps a lot during your stay, such as information of the city, restaurant reservation, etc.

We love the location of this hotel. Walking distance from Bairro Alto area and about 5-10 minutes walk from the subway station which has a supermarket.

Deco was beautiful and service was great. A suitable place for young adults. Only wish the rooms were bigger with proper wardrobe space. Bed could have been more comfortable. There's plenty of seating area with coffee table books near the reception and sometimes it's nicer to take the stairs from the room instead of the lift to just admire its furnishing on your way down.

Great location! We were planning to stay further away until a friend recommended LX Boutique and we are so grateful we listened and chose this location in Lisbon.

My boyfriend's birthday was during our stay and the hotel staff left a "Happy Birthday" bottle of tawny port in the room for him on his bday, along with some local pastries. We were so surprised to receive such a thoughtful gift!

Some reviews said the noise level was high but we didn't have that experience. If the windows were open you could hear the street noise but once the window was closed we heard nothing. Very comfortable bed and cozy room kept us sleeping like babies. Very good sized bathroom with a rain shower. The only complaint would be that the water took a long time to get warm in the morning but it is an old hotel building. Once warm, it remained hot for our showers.

The staff was very helpful with planning transportation for us and providing local information as well. They informed us the trains went on strike and helped us get bus schedules to our next destination.

We highly recommend LX Boutique and would love to stay there again!

Room Tip: Citylights rooms are great, enjoyed an upgrade to Xpanded room.

I just tried the resturant. The menu is basically sushi, with surprises. At night the ambience is very, very nice. Always full on beatiful people enjoying the night. Also the cocktails and very good. Go late.

This hotel is located in a lovely spot of the city. It has amazing views to the river and the bridge as well as the typical Lisbon streetcars circulating around the corner. In a very centric but also quiet area in Chiado and next to Bairro Alto, which I find it to be the best area in town. The architecture and decoration have been seriously taken into account and the result is excellent. We were gladly upgraded to a riverfront Xssential room which was very cozy, spacious and with everything you would need in a hotel. The staff are very attentive and always helpful when asked for information. I was there with my couple and we will always remember the great time we had in this city in part thanks to LX Boutique Hotel. Something I found very original and useful is a "storybook" they have in the reception where past customers leave their personal suggestions for sightseeing, bars, restaurants, clubs. Lovely Xperience!

Room Tip: The view of the river from the third floor is very nice. The rooms facing the river were really soun...
