I had stayed in the Hotel Fontecruz in Seville Spain a couple years ago. Had such a great experience there, I thought I'd see how their new property in Lisbon compared for my first trip to Portugal.
Like the hotel in Seville, this property was sleek and modern, yet relaxed and completely comfortable. The location was excellent, just up far enough on the Avenida da Liberdade to be out of the tourist crush, but close enough so that the sites were easy to access in five minutes on foot.
The front desk staff was terrific. I was traveling with my parents. Any questions we had (and my mother had many) were answered thoughtfully and warmly. Marianna (I hope I'm spelling her name correctly) was always welcoming and endlessly helpful with directions, and gave us restaurant suggestions that fit our style -- non-touristy and authentic portuguese cuisine. Another staff member, Nuno, was also right there, willing to help and make sure we were doing well.
I did have two issues the first night in my room. The water pressure in my shower was terrible, and there were a couple of light bulbs in the bathroom that were bad. I mentioned this to the front desk the next morning. By the time I returned from lunch, all had been completely repaired and cleaned.
My room was modern, attractive, clean and comfortable. I was on the fourth floor, with a view of the shady Avenida and its beautiful tile sidewalks. I was concerned that the street below would be create a noise issue. Not at all! The double pane windows took care of that. And it did seem that the Avenida, by two in the morning, was completely free of traffic. Very peaceful.
Loved Lisbon! Loved the Fontecruz!
