Reviewed August 8, 2013

This is a great hotel and i'd strongly recommend it. There aren't many restaurants close by (try 'Sixteen' Italian restaurant c200 yds away) but is it is in a great, accessible location so shouldn't cause to many issues. It was very popular with tourists as well as business people so seems to suit all.

It has two metro stations (Sao Sebastion (red line - takes you to airport) / Praha de Espanha(blue)) within a 5-8 min walk as well as bus stops and ever present taxis right outside. El Cortes Inglis department store (and cinema / supermarket / food court) is next to Sao Sebastion metro.

Rooms were large, quiet and well appointed although our tv remote did not work. Bathrooms were large and modern.

Breakfast buffet was excellent, well stocked (and regularly monitored and topped up) although it did get pretty busy at peak times.

Excellent for kids - there was a kids play area with Xbox and Xbox kinect which was always in use. The (small) pool area had a kids paddling pool as well as a play area that was always in the shade - thoughtful design!!

There were two computers with a printer (handy to check in & print boarding cards) although it was nearly always in use - the sign in was limited to 20 mins, which was good as it was mostly used by people using facebook.

ALL the staff were all excellent - reception and restaurant waiters in particular - and were always happy, cheerful and very, very helpful.

Downsides: 1) it's closeness to the airport meant there were plenty of planes overhead. It disturbed my wife in our room, although my two boys and I heard nothing!!! 2) Our room was next to the lift, and although the noise was minimal, didn't disturb us - i'd avoid it given the choice.

Room Tip: Avoid a room near the lifts (we had room _16 and think it is probably the most affected)

We stayed at Novotel, Lisboa from 20.- 24. July, and had a great time. It is really good with children, as they have a lot of possibility for them. Computer, Fitness, Pool and kinect.
Breakfast was very good and had nearly all that you could wish. Nice placement between the airport and downtown. 500 meter to Metro and the busses are right outside the intrance.

We like this Novotel Hotel in Lisbon. There was a real and friendly Guestservice. We enjoyed our short Trip there and also our Friends, who have been there too, did say, that it is a good Hotel. Standard Room was cosy and all was clean. Bathroom fully good. There was Breakfast buffet with good things and a tasty Choice of hot Beverages too.

I stayed here for one night. I booked an excellent deal directly with the hotel, less than 70€ for room only in May on a Sunday night.
Check-in: was not the friendliest I must admit. I wasn't asked if I needed any directions or other assistance and I had to wait as the receptionist attended to other tasks, with no apology.
Location: It's in a new business district. It's a short metro ride to the center. Ask them for the closest metro, I went down to the train station and it was over 10 minute walk, not very pleasant through the train station, maybe the stop at praca de espana is closer.Taxis are also extremely inexpensive, about 5€ to the centre or 10€ to the airport.
Room: was new, spotless, comfortable bed, tea and coffee and nice small functional bathroom
I didn't use the pool or have breakfast here.

We stayed in this hotel fro 3 nights and we can absolutely recommend this hotel. We were travelling with 2 kids (8,9) and the family room was large enough and offered a spacious bathroom. Kids loved the kids corner in the lobby area including X-Box and we loved this extra service too. Great breakfast buffet - no waiting and enough seats available. Distance to downtown is OK - 5 minutes walk to the next Metro station and abouth 6 stops by metro, which is fine. If there are four of you, your are better off taking a taxi, which is really cheap in Lissabon. Staff at the hotel is very friendly. Can really recommend this hotel.
