“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

I booked this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. This is an excellent quality 4 star hotel and good value for money. My room was spotless clean and comfortable. All staff were friendly and very helpful. My booking did not include breakfast but the additional cost for having breakfast in the hotel was worth it. Underground station is nearby. I definitely recommend this hotel.

As good as usual for a NOVOTEL - exceptional if you travel with kids, because it's not easy to find a solution on other brands to put 2 kids on our bedroom...

This hotel is fine for conferences. Clean, friendly, and good breakfasts (and a Kinnect Xbox in the hallway much to our ten year old's delight). But the pool is very noisy from the aircraft overhead, and whilst close to the magnificent Gulbenkian Museum, it is a 5 euro taxi fare from the centre. Handy for the airport however. Free wifi and spacious rooms.

It's in a grim area, and the wind whistles through between the other tall hotels and office blocks. Turn right out of the hotel for a 15 minute walk to the Metro, and the local shopping centre. Rooms are equipped with disposable plastic glasses,which fall over easily, and cardboard cups, so it's difficult to have more than one cup of tea or coffee. I think that's very poor service indeed. In our room, 825, the sink was very smelly, and when it started to leak from beneath at the U-bend I did report it to reception. They fixed it, but the smell did not quite go away. The lighting is inadequate, as is the provision of mirrors - none over the desk/dressing table area. The window is very small, so not much natural light gets in. We found the bed and pillows very uncomfortable, and were tired every day. The pillows especially, are filled with small bits of foam, that leak out, and also make you very hot. Rubbish japanese-style doors (2) to the bathroom make a lot of noise closing in the night. The pool area is ok, but you do get buzzed by landing aircraft. Breakfast was a bit of a bun fight - some things finished and were not replaced, like tomatoes and mushrooms. We did eventually discover some ok restaurants nearby - out of the hotel, turn left, take the first sensible right road, and at the bottom of that (by a furniture shop) turn left - Av. Columbano Bordalo Pinheiro. We tried Alfassador Restaurante, Casa Mia and Restaurant Baloico.

I'll make it quick. The hotel is nice, clean, rather new, but if you're looking for a central location it's not so near to the city center. The breakfast offers various choices, the staff are ok, polite and helpfull. The issues i had were with the the shower not working properly, very strong sewer smell comming from the sing, noise of the airplanes flying really low over the hotel, the fact that AC wasn't working during my entire stay- due to technical problems, and, worst of all, i could not open the window so in the room it was always stuffy air and very hot during the entire night. There is a pool at the hotel, but keep in mind it's rather small. Rooms were very big, with free wifi, very good TV channel choice, big bathroom, coffe machine and a safe. Overall impression, i would say it was an ok experience with a few set backs.

This hotel is not that accesible by public transport.took a bus and metro to get there then walked up a hill.its almost secluded in regards to restaurants and bars.its 5mins from beautiful views at casa da ribeira. I didnt like the hotel room,the decor was aged but for the value what can you expect.it has a really nice pool though.
