“Two night stay”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Stayed fot 2 nights while travelling to Lisbon, very clean hotel with great friendly staff. Not to far from city centre and ideal for metro travel from airport and to/from city.

Great value for money, lovely room kept well clean.

Fantastic selection for breakfast.

I stayed for 2 nights when it was quite windy. The hotel had placed some Christmas type lights hanging on the front wall - these lights were banging the window frames all night long and caused such noise which made sleeping literally impossible. Otherwise ok, but would not give 5 stars even if the room would have been quiet.

We stayed here with friends as a trip to celebrate my birthday. Fantastic from start to finish. We were on the fourth floor in good sized rooms overlooking the rear of the hotel.. These were always spotlessly clean. Beds could definitely be described as firm! Not a problem for us though.One my actual birthday they left a bottle of fizz and cake in our room for when we returned at the end of the day!
We ate in the hotel restaurant on the first night and although the food could not in any way be described as Portuguese style it was absolutely delicious. Came with a free bottle of wine! Breakfast in the mornings was another delightful experience. We were hitting the room at about 9.30 so not experiencing queues. The fare was beautifully presented, always plentiful and really set us up for a day of sight seeing. ALL the staff were absolutely fantastic and could not have made our stay any better.
5 min walk to the metro. You can buy a card similar to an Oyster card and reload it with money. We believe that each trip regardless of distance seemed to cost about 1.15E. Easy to get to and from the airport and access the centre. Try Tram 28 and Tram 15 out to Belem to experience the sights of the city. A day pass might allow you to hop on and off more but we were happy to just sit.
Huge Cortes Ingres v close to hotel but also a Pingo Doce supermarket if you just want to pop in for something.
Try Campos Restaurant, 19 Rua Fillipe Folque for a traditional Portuguese food experience.
A beautiful city which we will definitely be returning to in the near future.

Real Palacio provided excellent value for money for our party of three couples on a winter break. whilst not bang in the centre it is close to about four metro stations. (Sao Sebastiao on the red line is about a five minute walk and is ideal if you arrive at the airport. Aeroporto is the first stop on this line Sao Sebastiao is the last). Probably about a 20 minute walk into town but might take longer coming back as it will be uphill. I say probably because we just used the metro all the time. The Viva Viagem card with credit for five days cost about 25 Euro each and can be used on tram, bus, metro, and "Elevadors" considering one trip on Elevador Sao Juste cost three Euros fifty I felt it was outstanding value for money.
Back to the hotel, room comfortable, good variety of breakfast choices, both hot and cold. I am told the gym was fine. There is a little cafe (Bica e Agua possibly ) about a 1 minute walk away where we got incredibly cheap wine and beer.

All in all the Real Palacio was a great location, maybe four stars rather than five, no pool.

Room Tip: Get the daily travel card, eat at least one pasta del nata (custard tart) Book a tuk tuk tour.

My partner and I took a short break here in early spring and were delighted with the location, the hotel, and staff. Although the room didn't have a double bed they made one up from the two singles. The location was ideal and being not far from the underground system, the metro, we popped in and out whilst exploring. The staff were always very helpful and friendly and even recommended a local festival to go to.
Bit disappointed with the restaurant which I felt was overpriced. I guess it depends whether you enjoy cooking at home....if you do, you may find it better to look outside the hotel as we did, apart from the one night we ate in.
All in all it was well worth the money and would return again.
Thank you staff!

Good location within walking distance of the Gulbenkian museum one of Europe's finest. Rooms are a tad small, but after all you are just going to sleep there. Also an easy walk to the Cortes
Ingles super shopping center. Not particulary close to downtown Lisbon. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Outstanding buffet breakfast. We were there for 3 nights on a Vantage tour

We stayed here 4 nights, 3 of which from a Vantage tour. Hotel was very comfortable and the included breakfast very delicious and a wide assortment. There was free WiFi in the lobby area and the hotel is short few block walk from the metro.

Room was plenty big and the beds comfy. We would return here -- no problem. Staff very friendly.

Room Tip: If you drive here, get good directions. They don't make it easy to see street signs from the car...
