Fontecruz Lisboa Autograph Collection

The design was second to none, the staff friendly, food great - but most of all, I loved the design of the hotel and the rooms. So creative! I'd definitely stay here again. Be sure to have a meal (besides breakfast) in the hotel restaurant - the food is top class. The only thing that was a bit annoying was that there was no hot water cooker in the room. So, you had to go down to the restaurant every time you wanted a cup of tea or coffee.

All agree that the location is superb, the breakfast is great, the beds are great and the rooms and lobby are trendy. But I think that this hotel needs to upgrade its housekeeping staff and perhaps its front desk. All were pleasant, to be sure. But there was uncertainty whether we were Marriott Gold or not, there were difficulties in obtaining additional tissues, there was confusion about whether we had reserved a car for a sintra tour for thursday or for saturday, some days we had a floor mat for the bath and some days we did not, all of which would not happen in a first rate hotel.

This hotel has a great location it was very nearby to everything we wanted to see and do. We could walk to most things our a train station was very near. You would not even know it a hotel by just walking by.. Our room was upgraded by the very efficient receptionist J. Hotel was quiet most of the time but they did have a few fashion week events going on when we there. The restaurant had a great farm to table style setting which I thought was cute. We wood recommend this hotel to others

Stayed here for two nights on a trip to Lisbon. We chose it as it was a Marriott and we wanted to earn points, but also because it didn’t look like the classic Marriott that could be any city, in any country. It’s one of their new Autograph collection and you’d never have known it was Marriott at all! It’s funky and modern and kept very clean. We both liked it!

The pictures on the website do accurately reflect it’s style and what it looks like. Front desk team were extremely friendly and very helpful and often would chat with you to find out what you were planning to do that day or see what you’d done on the way back! They didn’t hide behind the desk, which I thought was nice. Francisco was charming.

Breakfast was lovely and something slightly different – always a bonus when you travel a lot! It felt very low key and relaxed.

The rooms are modern and trendy in style. Bed large and very comfortable. We had one of the darker painted rooms, which was very spacious, with a really high ceiling and a lovely view to the front of the main tree lined avenue – where we heard no road noise to disturb us - they must be thick windows. In hindsight I think I’d have preferred one of the white rooms, as they would be brighter. My only alteration to the darker painted rooms would be a glitzy crystal chandelier to match the décor (something like the ones from downstairs to make the room a bit brighter!). We did have a very leaky shower, but as only one other recent guest mentioned this on trip advisor I think this was just an issue with our one (they perhaps were in the same room!). Our room had shower only. These comments are why I’ve given it a very good rating, not excellent. The safe in the room was large and someone else also pointed out the power goes off when the room key is removed.

It cost 20 euros by taxi to get there from the airport and only 12 to get back. They do have parking at the hotel in the rear of the building. The road layout outside the hotel is a little silly for anyone planning on driving there, as the traffic direction on the single lane side streets that run parallel to the main avenue, doesn’t run either up or down the avenue, but changes direction at difference sections, so I was glad we got a taxi! We did quite a loop to get back to where we wanted to be. The taxi driver said it was crazy layout!

The hotel is extremely well located. It was a safe area, and walking distance from the railway station (Rossio), the metro (‘Avenida’ is almost opposite the hotel on blue line / the red line takes you to the airport, change at ‘S. Sebastiao’ three stops up on blue line for the red line). It was easy access to the Alfama area, the waterfront, the designer shopping area (Chiado) and the Bairro Alto area and lots of restaurants. We bought a daily pass tram ticket at the metro station for 6 euros each, which was great for hopping on and off the trams and saved a fortune. Lisbon has a lot of steep hills, and the pavements/sidewalks are all made up of shiny and slightly uneven 2” x 2” mosaic tiles - comfy shoes essential. It’s a great city to walk round. Lots to do & see.

Room Tip: If you like brighter light in a bedroom, ask if they can put you in a white room.

I travel on business to Lisbon quite often, and decided to try this new hotel. The lobby is dark, but when you get to the room you start loving this hotel. Rooms are spacious and modern, with very comfortable beds. Location is the best in town.

I stayed at this hotel twice in the past month, and both occasions were wonderful experiences. Large rooms, great ambiance, and amazing service. I will definitely opt for the Fontecruz on my next visit to Lisbon again!

You can either take the aerobus or the metro from the airport to within 50 meters of the hotel. I recommend the aerobus on the way there so you can see some of the city. The location is quite close to everything but is still quite on the only tree-lined street in the area. There are two buildings, one with rooms in black decor and one with rooms in white. The white ones are further from the street and we had absolutely no noise. The bed was very plush and comfortable, the room and bathroom spacious. All was clean and housekeeping replenished toiletries daily. There is a locking safe in the wardrobe and a mini-bar fridge with enough space to cool a bottle of water in overnight (though power is off when you remove your key so don't put anything in that needs to stay cold all day). The air conditioning can be set per room and worked well and was quite.
The staff at the front desk was lovely though there was a mix-up about the complimentary breakfast on our 2nd day. Overall, a very nice hotel.
