We had more than a 10-hour-layover in Lisbon on our way from Brazil back home. We wanted to have a room just for the day at a hotel close to the airport. The location is excellent for this purpose. It probably took us about 20 minutes to get from the airport (with metro) to the hotel. There is also a nice shopping center close to the hotel. The room itself was spacious enough for two people. Even the wifi worked very well. Service at the hotel was not as polite and professional as you could imagine it to be. They made us jump up and down from the room to take photo copies of our travelling documents, and when I requested whether they had massage at the hotel, I did not receive too polite an answer. It was simply, "no". Nothing else. One towel was very dirty in the bathroom, but they replaced it very quickly when we asked for it. I guess that they did not like my t-shirt (Brazil national soccer team) at the reception either.
The location is very good, the price for a day (7 hours) was reasonable, but I guess that there are other good hotels in the same area too. If we ever want to stay a the Oriente area again, we may choose to try another hotel to find out what the options are.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Right in the heart of Parque das Nações, the Hotel Tryp Lisboa Oriente was recently refurbished with "Expo 98" and the Oceans as its background. At the entrance, visitors are met by a series of ocean aquariums together with a canvas, in the reception area, representing the great architectural landmarks. The rooms emphasise elegance, modernity and comfort, and are characterised by the marine environments and the harmony of the sea smell, alternating between the blue of the rooms looking out towards the Tagus and the coral red of those which lend a view of the heart of the city. They have free Wifi access, a Television with satellite channels, a lounge area, telephone with a direct line and air conditioning. The "Bistrô&Tapas" Restaurant, which extends out to a pleasant esplanade, displays the most iconic symbol of Expo 98: panels which reflect the universality of the event and convey the popular Exhibition passport. The restaurant serves international breakfasts and offers an à la carte service and a dish of the day, based on the "Bistrô&Tapas" concept. For a light meal, take advantage of the bar where organic forms give body and soul to the drinks bars and you can admire a reproduction of a Portuguese stone-paved roadway. Located close to the FIL - Lisbon International Fair, the famous Oceanarium and Lisbon Casino, and just a few minutes away from Lisbon International Airport, the Tryp Lisboa Oriente is situated around 15 minutes away from the historical city centre. Just a short walk away you can find a full transport network, including the metro, buses and trains. The Parque das Nações is an excellent choice for visitors interested in culture, history, food and drink. ... more less
