Overall, I would recommend this hotel. The location is great, just off one the main squares with the rickety old trams up to the castle right on your doorstep. The bizarre lift to the fallen down church and the water are all close by too. The room was perfectly nice if a little pokey, very clean etc. staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast decent. A good hotel.

My only caveat being the design theme. I suppose it depends on your taste but i found it all a little silly. Pretentious quotes that a moody fourteen year old would scratch into their backpack to sound clever adorn the walls everywhere. Mind bending wallpaper and bold colours abound. Over- designed might be more apt... But still, it was more odd than offensive, and didn't detract from a very pleasant stay. Recommend.

Room Tip: Attic rooms have eaves so restricted height, bathrooms too: showered at 45 degrees!

From the enquiry to the departure, every body we dealt with was friendly and very professional. The rooms are small but absolutely fine for a city stay. Clean and well appointed. Especially "George Clooney" coffee in our room! Breakfasts were delicious. Huge assortment of fresh fruit, cold meats, cheeses, pastries ,.... Whatever you wanted.
We will be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Zen room but the other themes looked just as lovely.

We stayed at Internacional Design hotel for 5 nights. We arrived at the hotel minus our luggage and the reception staff went beyond the call of duty to assist us with phone calls to the airline to try and locate our bags.I can't remember all their names but they were all fantastic. Our room was only tiny but very clean with a nespresso machine. It was great to be able to make a coffee in the room unlike other European hotels. The breakfast delicious with a glass of champagne which I needed after the bags fiasco! Felipe was very courteous and his attention to detail at breakfast unsurpassed. On our last night we were informed of a truly Portuguese restaurant by staff- another great experience.
The hotel is in a excellent location close to metro and local sights.
Once again to all the staff- thank you.

An excellent base from which to enjoy LIsbon. This hotel couldn't be in a more central location, the room was comfortable and not at all noisy. The hotel is quite funky in its decor and the staff are very helpful. Will definitely be staying here when I return. A word of advice bring a travel iron. The hotel doesn't have any for safety reasons. First time I've come across this.

We booked the Internacional Design Hotel for 5 nights at the end of September and couldn't have asked for a better stay. The hotel's location couldn't be more central to the most popular amenities in Lisbon, whilst the decor, staff and overall quality of our stay was absolutely fantastic. Rooms are great and, if you're lucky enough to get a balcony, the views of the surrounding areas are brilliant. Was slightly concerned that the noise from the busy streets below could be quite loud, but the doors / windows silenced this almost completely when closed. Special mention goes to Ana (think this is her name) who made our stay all the more special. If you're looking for a top hotel in central Lisbon, this one's perfect. Prices may be slightly above some people's budget but this is made up for completely by the location. Would definitely return during any future trips to the city.

Decided to go for a break in Lisbon as not been to portugal before. Whole trip has been excellent. International design hotel has been a key part of that. Excellent location within walking distance of main attractions, hop on/off bus tours and restaurants. Decent sized rooms with normal amenities plus nespresso machine. Great breakfast with good selection plus omelette/crepes made to order. Staff very friendly and helpful. You couldn't ask for more for a lovely relaxing break!
