“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere and decor are modern and stylish. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is great. We had two of the cocoon rooms which are on the small side and with bathrooms also on the small side. It wasn't the type of trip where we needed much more so they were perfect for this vacation. I will stay again when in Lisbon.

To begin a recently rapidly booked stay by telephone call to the Hotel my wife spoke to Nuno who was delightful. After arrival at the airport where we were collected and driven to the hotel very efficiently it became apparent that all the staff at the International Design Hotel were also delightful. The room and service were excellent as was breakfast. We were made to feel at home. The location was perfect for our initial visit to Lisbon and guidance from the hotel staff on where to go and how best to travel was perfect. we would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to our friends.

in the centre of Lisbon this is an extraordinairy place. Quite, nice, with loads of ideas. Overwhelmed by details like ceiling paintings, colour of the toilet paper etc.
The breakfast just the brest you can imagine. Friendly stuff. My first address in Lisbon.

Stayed for three nights in this great hotel, and can definetely recommend it. The hotel is placed at the city's main square, with short distance to the castle, the old town and Avenida Liberdade.

Friendly staff at front desk, nice and clean room and a breakfast far better than most others are just a few of the reasons to stay at this hotel. The only downside is that rooms with balcony have doors that don't completely block the noise from the street outside.

This was our first trip to Lisbon and are so thankful that we picked this hotel as the location was absolutely spot on. It's right in the centre of the city and everything is easily accessible. It was walking distance to all the main attractions we wanted to see - and also there is a Metro stop, tram stop and Aerobus stop on your doorstep. There are restaurants close to the hotel, or a 5 minute walk takes you to the Chiado district with many more restaurants and bars.

The hotel itself was very nice although I thought it was quite expensive - but I haven't compared it with other hotels so maybe it's just that Lisbon hotels are pricey? We had the smallest size room which when we arrived thought was tiny, but actually it was perfectly fine for our 3-day stay. The bed and pillows were very, very comfortable - excellent. The bathroom had a mini-sized bath with shower over and again that was fine - the shower was great and the bath was fine for a very small person! The room was cleaned OK - a bit hit and miss as to what was supplied - on the first day there was no bathmat, on the second day there was a bathmat but no refreshed toiletries - and on the 3rd day it was all perfect! The plumbing was a bit cranky - if you flushed the loo the cold water didn't run in the bath and on the last day the cold water stopped working - but as we were just checking out it wasn't a problem and I'm sure they would have fixed it quickly. The nespresso coffee machine was nice although they only refilled the water on the 3rd day and we weren't sure if we should use tap water or not so didn't use that - also there was no milk. The room description said there was complimentary mineral water but we never saw that so not sure if that was true. This all sounds a bit picky but I like to give a full picture - all in all it was a nice room and we had great nights sleep there. The major drawback was that our room had absolutely no view - e.g. the window was high up and when we opened the curtains it looked out onto a wall so the view was a concrete wall which was a bit disappointing.

We had a free welcome drink in the bar on our first day which was nice. The bar was empty which was a shame as it's very nice - also the wine was the nicest wine I had the whole trip (and I tested plenty!). We went there again for a nightcap on our last evening - this time there were a couple of other people there although still very quiet. I'd definitely recommend trying it - the more people who use it the buzzier it will be!

We didn't have breakfast included in our rate so didn't use the hotel for breakfast which was a shame as we had a look and it looked absolutely amazing - next time we will definitely look for a breakfast-included rate!

The staff on reception were always very friendly. We only asked them a couple of questions and both times they were exceedingly helpful - a real credit to the hotel.

We noticed the airport shuttle taxi rate of 10 euros but as the Aerobus stop is outside the hotel it didn't seem worth it.

All in all we had a fantastic trip. We will definitely return to Lisbon and will definitely return to this hotel, although we might search a few booking agents to see if we can get it a little bit cheaper and have the breakfast included!

Room Tip: Check if you have a view.

The Internacional Design Hotel was not all that well known when I made my reservations for a trip last October. It came recommended to me by a friend at the Portuguese Tourism Office in NYC. It was a couple of weeks before it was referenced in the New York Times. I thought the price and location was perfect and took a chance. It was a smart thing to do! Our "Tribal" room overlooked Rossio Square, the views were gorgeous, the room was comfortable and cleanliness was outstanding as was the fantastic breakfast offered. The staff was friendly, helpful and went the extra distance for anything you asked. Go for it! You won't be disappointed by this unusual hotel in a fantastic city.
