“Great choice for a Lisbon hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

I booked a family room (two adults, two children) for 3 nights over half-term. The hotel was easy to find, there are two underground stations within walking distance, and the airport is at the other end of the (short) line. Check-in was polite and quick, we found our room to be comfortable and quiet (we didn't hear any aircraft flying over). The internet is free and of fair quality, and there is a mini;bar which was useful for keeping items cold. The TV had over 60 channels including Sky News, BBC World and BBC Entertainment. Breakfast was included and was plentiful and of excellent quality. The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. We ate in the hotel restaurant on two occasions in the evening. One evening featured a fine buffet which was good value and very varied. The hotel is situated in a road with many other hotels and there are other restaurants close by, including an all-you-can-eat Brazilian barbecue. Also, the Sete Rios railway station is five minutes away, handy if you plan to visit Sintra (highly recommended). I would not hesitate in returning to the Novotel Lisboa.

Excellant place to stay with your family. Lisbon is a wonderful city!
My family spent 4 nights in this hotel and it was very comfortable. Close to metro and nearby shopping center El Cote Ingles. Ten minutes walking distance to Lisbon Zoo, which is a great place to see if you are with kids.

What I liked: Staff at front desk was super friendly and excellent attention. No problem with early check which is wonderful after long overnight flight. Breakfast is very good and a lot of variety of hot and cold foods. Rooms are spacious.

Disliked: Internet wifi speed is slow and connection is spotty. (1.25 MBPS downlaod speed is inadequate). I think 4 star hotels have an obligation to provide a no cost and high quality internet service. They offer a paid Premium service but i find that distasteful.
Room furnishings are of a 3 star hotel and very simple/basic.
The gym is tiny and poorly equipped.

I spent three nights in this hotel. Quite good location, not far from metro station, only about five minutes walk from Placa de Espanha. I've read the noise off airplanes is heard in the hotel, it's true but it doesn't matter- the planes are not flying in the night:) Hotel has extremely good and friendly Staff, They helped us everytime we need some help.
The room was cleaned everyday, towels were changed, beds were convenient. And breakfast were superb, delicious and giving power for all the day activity. I'm sure next time I'll be in Lisbon I"ll choose Novotel Lisboa Hotel.

Me and my wife had a weekend in Lisbon (Friday-Monday) and stayed at the Novotel.
Service was great.
Breakfast can be improved.
Close to the Metro that will bring you everywhere in Lisbon.

Great value for Money.

Will chose the same hotel the next time.

When you stay in one Novotel, you've almost seen them all. They are out of the central area but offering good and quality accomodation with affordable prices. When you add "kids stay and eat free" there is no doubt where to settle when travelling as a family of four.
The Lisboa hotel is like the above. It is a good hotel close to the metro station "praca de Espana" which is less than 10 minutes walking, and then by the metro you're in the city centre in around another 10-15 minutes. That means less than half an our from exiting your room.
The rooms are spacious, but when you use the sofa for kids, they become bearable in size. Room amenities, classic Novotel. Fridge, coffee maker, flat TV, hair dryer, safe deposit box, slippers, enough luggage space,...everything you need. Rooms are cleaned every day, towels changed,...
The breakfast is great, with great choice of everything from fruits and cereals, over cold meat and cheese, eggs in five ways, sausages, mushrooms, fresh bakery products (take the famous Pasteis de Belem cookies, they're awesome). The only minus is that it is the same every day (we spent four nights there).
Although they advertise with free wifi throughout the hotel, the best signal is in the lobby. In some areas of the restaurant, in the elevators and in some parts of the rooms it gets lost so you have problems.
If you're with the car, I suggest not to take their garage which is a little bit pricey. Along the street are plenty car spaces (and in the side streets also) and parking for overnight is free (from 7 pm till 9 am).
