“A great alternative to Central City Lisbon.”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

We are a mature couple and have been on the road for 13 months.
We arrived in Lisbon and stayed at a central city hotel right in the middle of the tourist area.
It was a poor quality noisy hotel and cost us E90 a night.
We returned to Lisbon two weeks later and booked this hotel to be near the airport.
This hotel, on the other hand, is fantastic for exactly half the price.
It is not in the heart of the tourist area but there is a Metro just around the corner with a line going straight to the tourist area - about 20 minutes for E1-50 each way.
The reception staff were excellent and informative - couldn't be more helpful.
The hotel was extremely clean throughout.
There was a nice bar and plenty of lounge areas.
The bedroom was adequate with a tight but functional bathroom.
There was no street noise at all.
There was no WiFi in the room but good coverage in the lounge areas.
To me it is a no-brainer: stay here, pay an extra 5 or 10 Euro a day and you would still be saving 40 Euros a day in accommodation costs compared to the central city establishments.
This is where we will stay if returning to Lisbon.

This is nice 3 star hotel in center Lisbon. The rooms are a bit outdated, and sometime the wallpaper was not in proper conditions, but the cleanliness of the room and the toilets was impeccable. The breakfast was a bit above par for a 3 star hotel, and it was a nice surprise. The hotel is really very well located in Lisbon, close to metro stations, and allowing nice walks. Our room was in the 8th floor, and everything was quiet, so the quality of sleep was excellent. The major drawback is that the hotel does not provide Internet in the rooms, it only has free WiFi in the lobby. We also could not park the car in the garage because it was full.

Room Tip: ask for a room in a top floor and facing the back of the hotel to get a quiet room.

Great location, near public transports and easy to drive to if you've got you own car (although paied street parking).
Near campo pequeno, nice area to walk and feel the city.
Very good rooms: modern, clean and confortable. Free use of the safe.
Unfortunatley breackfast is not included in the price.

Room Tip: If you need your sleep try to get a floor without "party guests"

A very functional hotel and an excellent location in Lisbon’s Campo Pequeno. A very short walk to the stadium that is the venue of world-class shows. It was a Friday and we were on the fifth floor by the elevator and it was extremely quiet. In the morning the birds woke us up! The bedroom was quite large and the bathroom was nicely tiled and appointed. A comfortable sitting chair in the bedroom would be a welcome addition.

Room Tip: We stayed in 516 that was quiet but no great view.

If a hotel is a place to sleep and have breakfast, than it's OK. If you want more, e.g. cental location, some extra space in your room... this might not be your hotel.
During our stay the hotel was flooded with youngsters 'doing' Lisbon.
Big advantage is that train, metro and busses are literally around the corner. Take a day pass for about € 6 for all kinds of transport, Lisbon is eh.. quite hilly.

Very Good value for money
Reception staff not the most friendly but OK. Room maids much more sympathetic.
Furniture TV & bathroom equipment quite old, but I had a good night sleep (no noise)although the too soft pillows.
Breakfast was not included, but it seemed nice for the price of 7€
A very good choice for a low cost budget.

My new husband and I stayed at this hotel our first night in Lisbon. It was conveniently located near the metro which was nice. However, the hotel was not very clean and the hotel staff were not very friendly or helpful. They did not provide any information about the surrounding area and they were not very informative about where to eat. Also, we had booked our room for one night but they had us marked down for only one night. They did allow us to stay another night after I made it clear that I would not be looking for somewhere else to stay. However, they would not give us the lower rate that we had when booking the first night. They were not apologetic or particularly warm. Also, we had a non-smoking room but our hallway smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. Our room was right next to the elevator and it kept us awake. We would not stay again now knowing about all the wonderful accommodations in Lisbon. I must say that the maids were very friendly though.

Room Tip: If you do want to stay here be sure to get a room that is located far away from the elevator and ask...
