Brilliant central location, close to everything. Wonderful friendly and helpful staff who gave good advice about nearby facilities, restaurants, etc, as well as interesting tourist options for elsewhere in Portugal. Perfect breakfast - very large choice. Nice bar for pre-dinner drinks. Rooms vary in size and outlook on different floors, and on the lower floors are a bit small, but otherwise perfect. Very creative decor throughout hotel, with different themes on different floors. This will be my first stop whenever I'm in Lisbon.

We stayed in this very centrally-located hotel and our room had a fantastic view in two different directions through French doors. We were torn about having coffee in one of the many cages or enjoying a nespresso and the view from our room. The decor of our room was very different even the bright pink loo paper!!! Loved it The staff were very helpful organising breakfast to be delivered to our room for our early departure. The central location made it so easy to just stroll the mall but it was not far to walk to the tram for Belem. We would stay here again and recommend it to all. The huge bed was so comfortable and breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: A room on a higher floor is a must.

This hotel was excellent! The staff was incredible. We accidentally booked our stay on the wrong weekend...when we arrived the guys at the front desk were able to get us their last room. We thought we were going to get the broom closet but it was a fantastic room with king size bed. I booked through hotel.com and purchased the non-refundable room rate. I was thought I was going to have to double pay to stay their but the front desk quickly called hotel.com and was able to switch the weekend without an additional charge to us. The property itself could not be more central. Its in a super busy square but inside the hotel and our room it was peaceful and quiet. The included breakfast was awesome too! We would definitely come back here...highly recommended.

Fantastic small hotel in a great location on the edge of Rossio Square. Close to the Aerobus stop & Metro. Good choice of cafes and restaurants close by. Differently themed rooms on each floor. Comfortable room with good quality bedding, Nespresso machine & air conditioning that worked! Staff were very helpful & friendly. The breakfast was so very good, with a great choice of hot & cold, sweet & savoury food and good choice of fruit juices & other drinks. The bar overlooked the square and had a good choice of drinks & cocktails! A great place to go at the end of the day! Should we return to Lisbon, we would definitely stay at the Internacional Design Hotel.

The staff and facilities of this hotel were generally excellent. Nice rooms (smallish, but you're in Europe so that's normal), great service and a very good spot right on Placa Rossio. About my only complaint was that the walls are a bit thin on the inside, but the sound insulation from the street is quite good, which is more important. The room also seemed to get a bit warm even with the thermostat set to 22, but it may be that was set incorrectly. Overall, definitely a good choice.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor facing the side street, which was nice. I can't speak for the other...

In general a very nice hotel with nice staff and lovely rooms. We had the smallest - the cocoon room - but it was quite a fine sizs for us. The hotel is very nicely decorated, very trendy interiour, maybe a bit over the top, but a fun place to stay. If you don't like your room too hot at night, don't stay on the fourth floor, since the air con is connected through the entire floor and they keep quite hot after our taste.
