“Nice Retro Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Sofitel Liberdad is located almost near the old center. Even the building is quite new renovated outside, inside the hotel has an old style flavour.

Location
- close to the center within 1 km but not in the old city center
- easy catch by buss or metro - both having station in front of hotel

Rooms
- looks nice, not so large but elegant and confortable (especialy te bed has a super mattress)
- bit strange is bath because it entrance looks like a 2 doors wordrobe and has no window and no ventilation
- also the carpets and furnitures looks bit old, but stil in good conditions

Breakfast
- one of the best I ever had in Europe (best I had only in Moevenpick Amsterdam)
- you can have even free Sparkling wine at the breakfast :)

Staff
- all time they smile and they are very friendly and try to help you (more then formal, this peoples are realy frendly and relaxed, not only obligation of they job)

What to improve:
- hotel need a renovation inside in order to make it bit modern
- rooms are not very large but this can't be changed

A fantastic value for a weary hotel much in need of an update but in a great location. A stroll on the Avenida or a short walk to the railroad or across the plaza from the Metro confirms what a good deal this hotel provides for travelers who want some by gone luxury. The bar is fun, the concierge staff good and the rooms are tidy. But the mattress was tired as was the arm chair and carpets. Nice amenities!

From the moment we arrived at the Sofitel Lisbon, we were treated like a favoured regular even though I had never even been to the city before and we were only there for 1 night! We were checked in smoothly, and the manager had given us what he believed to be one of the best rooms in the hotel, and indeed when we went in it was a sight to behold. A personalised letter, some delicious fruit cocktails left on the bureau, before we discovered a wonderfully spacious terrace that gave us views of Lisbons castle and the streets below. The bed was fantastic as always with the myBed concept, and clean modern furnishings and ambient lighting throughout. The bath once we got the hang of the rain shower was also refreshing after a day wandering around the quaint city streets. Room service was also excellent.

The location itself is excellent, with the hopon/off bus (all three rival companies!) 2 minutes walk away, with the main center and its shops only 5 – 10 minutes away, as well as major landmarks such as the Santa Justa elevadore. The coast was at a snails pace no more than a 20 minute enjoyable walk through pedestrianised streets.

Sofitel is a great brand which we always try and stay in, and this hotel I would say is up there with the best in Europe, if not the best encountered so far.

Thanks once again for a fabulous stay!

Attentive staff but the property is in desperate need of a total re do. The furniture looks like its the original inventory that started out when the hotel was built 20 years ago. My room had only one chair when there was evidently 2 to begin with, and it wasn't even near the reading light. The heating unit malfunctioned and required two visits from the technician to fix. Great location though.

The moment you arrive at the sofitel Lisbon you are welcomed by a most friendly and charming staff. Being a frequent sofitel customer we were upgraded from a luxury room to junior suite. The suite was spacious and equipped with luxurious amenities and the usual comfy mybed. Housekeeping is very good, quiet and the room is very clean. Getting a glimps at the other rooms, i can't understand the criticism about the room size. Given the fact that you are in downtown densely constructed Lisbon, the size of the rooms is absolutely reasonable. Even the admittedly small gym is well equipped and in excellent condition. The hotel may be an older property in the sofitel chain, but knowing it from stays years ago, it has been renovated with much effort, a sense for details and modernity, while keeping the charm of the Building. An asset as found in all sofitels is again the staff. Omnipresent if you need help, but descreet to make you feel at home, they are more then just friendly. If there is one thing, that could be improved, then maybe the coordination of the staff at the restaurant. They are as friendly as the rest, but obviously not guided properly, as the service seemed rather hectical even with few guests presents and the tone among them seemed a bit unfriendly. All in all wie will sure come back and if you are looking for downtown luxury in Lisbon, then the sofitel should be your Choice.

The Sofitel was a perfect base from which to explore Lisbon.

We had an excellent welcome and every staff member that we came across were polite and helpful.

The room although a little small (almost to be expected in the city centre) had everything that we could possibly need and was spotlessly clean.

The breakfast we fantastic with fresh baked breads and proper freshly squeezed juices etc.

A first rate excellent experience and would wholeheartedly recommend.

I decided to stay at this hotel because i had a great experience at Sofitel Budapest Chain Bridge Hotel. However, this Lisbon property is completely different. I booked a 5 night stay, due to my airline flight change i had to leave a day earlier. I notified the hotel but they did not care ... they did not even want to issue a hotel credit towards another stay. ... and they were even sold out that week.
