“just short of perfect”
Reviewed August 1, 2011

Just off the avenue Liberdade, the hotel is a welcome comfort from all the shopping, hills and sightseeing you will do when in Lisbon. We were on the second floor which clean, well maintained and the staff are exceptionally friendly. The double room was spacious but we would have liked a shaving mirror in the bathroom. The breakfast was of high quality but needed some variety after 10 days. The serving staff are brilliant and the reception manager even contacted TAP airline to book my seats home for me.
We didn't try the bistro as it seemed quiet but the nightlife in the Barrio more than made up for it and the Bar next door was very good. The mini supermarket down the street was great for those little snacks and drinks- very cheap. There is also a wonderful leather shop that my wife bought handbags from.

It is a little out of the way from the nightlife but the avenue is excellent , peaceful and very safe at night, with the small, tree-lined bars and godd window shopping. In the evenings, we took taxis back to the hotel at £3-5 per journey, it saved our tired legs and the 24 hour reception staff were always there to let us back to our somewhat hard beds. The hotel is a great vocation with the Metro only three minutes away, it is a great oasis and a credit to the very excellent staff they have.

Room Tip: choose the lowere floors as the lifts are small and can be very busy

This hotel is awesome in the heart of an upscale shopping area with a grocery store and a pharmacy within one block. Easy access to buses and trains. Hotel staff was very courteous and there is free wi-fi but only in the on property restaurant. We had a spectacular room, probably one of the best in the hotel with a large balcony overlooking Lisboa (How they say Lisbon). I also recommend We hate tourism tours. Lisbon was just going to be a stop over on our honeymoon where we didn't expect much, but it now holds a place in our heart. We loved Lisbon and would visit again our next time in Europe. I must say that the hospitality of the hotel helped us craft this experience. The front desk staff was very helpful offering different suggestions for restaurant and entertainment near by.

Room Tip: IF you can get it, the rooms with a balcony are probably the best, but I think there are only two.

The restaurant was fantastic but unfortunately when we returned for a meal on Saturday night it was closed, although inferior brasserie mini menu was available it was disappointing after brilliant meal before. Location was 10 minute walk from centre and metro was 3 minutes away.

We stayed at the Lisboa Hotel for four nights, for 75 euro/night, breakfast included. Our room was on the fourth floor and looked very modern. We especially liked the high ceilings and the fact that the room was so quiet. We slept very well on the beds and the bathroom looked just as modern as the room.

The breakfast buffet had plenty of choice, including bacon & eggs and different sorts of fruit. The staff at the breakfast was very friendly. The only downside is the coffee; although I love black coffee in the morning, this coffee really was way too strong, which made me switch to tea at breakfast for the first time ever in an hotel (I did really try to like the coffee).

The hotel is close to the chic Av. da Liberdade and to a subway station. The walk to the city center takes about 15 minutes. We did not try the restaurant, because there are plenty of authentic Portuguese restaurants for a more reasonable price in the neighborhood.

Nice modern rooms with plenty of space. All staff were very helpful.
Free welcome drink was only available in 2 slots of 1 hour but was a very nice cocktail of the day rather than the usual bland experience!
Plenty of areas of interest, bars & restaurants within walking distance and close to 2 metro stations and several bus stops ideal for venturing further afield.
Breakfast buffet good quality and choice, loved the coffee!
The only downside would be if you are a light sleeper as the hotel is close to a busy thoroughfare and the air conditioning was a little noisy.

Really nice modern hotel very close to Old Lisbon centre. Staff were very pleasant and mostly multilingual. Room was clean and comfortable and the air conditioning was a blessing with the high summer temps in Lisbon. They recommended a restaurant called Santa Marta (if I remember correctly) that was 2 mins walk from the hotel. This is a typical Portuguese sea food restaurant and served up some of the best seafood I've eaten in a while. Pleasant atmosphere and again very friendly staff. The hotels bistro also served up some very nice food. We had a lovely stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

An excellent hotel in one of the best locations in Lisbon, very close to Marques Pombal square. We admired the outstanding planning of every detail in all the modern facilities that this hotel provides. The adjoining Marques Pombal and Britannia hotels may have larger lobbies, but otherwise Hotel Lisboa is probably the winner, at 1/2 to 2/3 the price.
