“A triumph of style over functionality”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Beautiful station, but very difficult for an overseas visitor to use! I travelled to the station by bus - but had to guess when we had arrived! I was catching a train to Coimbra, and found it difficult to work out where the main station actually was. Having found the station I was disconcerted to realise that there was no main departure board, and no obvious way of finding out when my train was leaving or from which platform. Neither was it clear (to a non Portuguese speaker) where to buy the ticket. Finally, on the platform, trains were only identified by final destination. When I asked someone whether the Porto train called at Coimbra, I was misinformed that it did not!

This would be fine for a small local station, but for one which handles long distance and international services it is pretty poor.

“excelente”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Very nice and modern railway station. The architecture is very special and just right for a country that wants to stand up and start bettr times.

“Always a great spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Nearby old 'EXPO 98', this station with Metro, Bus, Rail and Taxis is a great spot. It has also shops, and fairs, and you have lifts that help you going from one floor to another... Rolling stair and you can even smoke in those big holes.. Youhave also small coffes that can provide you almost everything in there.

“A very modern train station”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is one of the nicest modern train stations in Europe. The architecture of this big station makes it look light and sunny. There are plenty of shops inside, a metro station, bus stations. It's directly linked to the Vasco de Gamma shopping mall.

All in all, nice train station in a very nice modern area of Lisbon.

“Beautifull architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

This Station has some really beautifull architecture. It's always nice and busy and has a lot of activity within the station. There is a huge mall about 100 meters away with about every shop possible. And very close to the oceanario
