Reviewed February 6, 2014

I have stayed in a few boutique hotels in Lisboa. There are several points which makes this hotel really stands from the others: The location very central (easy to get a taxi; closed to main attractions; shopping area; bars and restaurants); all the furnitures are from leading designers and carefully chosen with care by the owner in terms of design and confort; the bedroom are very cosy ( bedlinen are a mix of linen and egyptian cotton; excellent mattress; Nespresso machine) and spotless; the friendly reception staff is willing to make you stay very confortable; Very good buffet breakfast; excellent Wifi and a nice Mercedes van available to take you to the airport. Alex, the owner works on site which is a great asset and he is very passionate about his property. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Internacional for 4 nights and were extremely impressed with the hotel. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, the rooms were well decorated and clean and the location was perfect for walking around the old town and frequenting the many bars and restaurants in the Bairro Alto.

Highly recommended!

A wonderful hotel needs to have a few solid basics very right - location, hygiene and service. This hotel gets a double tick for all of these essentials. But more than this, Internacional Design Hotel offers service with soul. As mentioned in many other reviews of this hotel, it has small rooms and bathrooms and almost no window. Yet despite this fact, the space has been well designed. The design of the building is old and that is indeed part of the charm. Yet all the mod cons are offered and all of them are in good working order. The best part for me about the room (inspire of the very comfortable surrounding and furniture) was the Expresso Machine in every room with a selection of very fine coffee.

All the staff were always very friendly, very helpful and always responsive in every way.

We had a very good experience from start to finish. Upon checking in we were told that the hotel would offer us the buffet breakfast every morning free of charge (we are a family of four including two teenagers). The breakfast was indeed awesome - both cold cuts, cereals, cheeses and home made breads and croissants to cooked breakfast of eggs and pancakes, with a fine selection of tea / coffee and champagne. Moreover, the location is indeed awesome as walking around Lisbon was so convenient - right from the Fado bars, the old part of town, the shopping squares and the river / ocean walks.

And finally the cherry on the proverbial cake was offered on the day we were leaving. We had a very early flight out and had to leave at 4.30 am. Despite this unearthly hour, a simple breakfast, with no additional charge, was sent up to our rooms at 4.15 am and a taxi with a very good driver organized to be waiting at the door at exactly 4.30 am.

We definitely recommend this hotel to our friends.

Clear thumbs up ! You couldn't ask for a better location as a tourist - bathrooms are rather small and the absence of windows in rooms is disorienting - but there are many other pluses that make up : a team that provides great service and location right next to the interesting part of town

This was a very good hotel and the friendliness of the staff made it a fantastic experience.

From arrival to departure were were made to feel welcome and every request dealt with quickly. The front desk staff were extremely helpful with where to go and what to do in the city.

The breakfast was great, everything from a continental selection to omelets made to order. Even a glass of sparkling wine.

The room was perfect, form a great bed, balcony and coffee machine.

My only slightly negative comment would be that the shower, although an excellent power shower with jet was not the easiest to get in and out of, and the towels could have been a bit bigger and better quality.

Keep up the great work, would certainly stay here again.

Many thanks for helping to make our time in Lisbon something special.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a balcony facing the square

Very cool rooms and wonderful location in the heart of Baixa. Easy walk to Barrio Alto, Castelo, Sé and all the main sites in Lisbon. The staff are incredible - accommodating, helpful and friendly. A couple of nights they even booked dinner reservations for us. The trip could not have been better!
