“Functional Hotel for City Trip”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

We spent two nights in the VIP Executive Barcelona Hotel. The room was clean, the staff was polite and helpful. We had the impression that the hotel was a little bit run down though. The hairdryer was rather old, as was the TV. The promised view over the city did not hold true. Definitely, the hotel does not deserve 4 stars but it is quite okay for a city trip. The metro station "campos pequenos" is only a few minutes walking distance and the ride into the city centre will take you about 15 minutes.
We didn't book the breakfast - luckily, because I don't think it could have ever beaten the value-for-money ratio of the really delicious breakfasts you can get in numerous bakeries in the city.

The hotel is very well located and staff is just great!!!
The room was clean.
I just think they should have more fast wi-fi and that the breakfast should be included.

Stayed two nights in this clean, comfortable, and well placed business hotel. Though not close to most tourist attractions, it is close to metro and main bus lines (including bus to airport), so relatively easy to reach Belem and Centro. Rooms were large with an odd decor which was a modern take on 1960s era color scheme mixed with some lovely blonde woodwork. I found it attractive and fun, but also a bit odd. Staff was very friendly, spoke great English, and were very helpful. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel, though it is offered. One drawback was that there was some noise from landing planes. Not sure if this is always the case since planes may normally land from another direction (we did). Also, wifi was not free, which was a bit of a drawback for us.

To be fair, VIP Executive Barcelona has a good location (especially for visiting the university next door or the Gulbenkian foundation down the street) and is fairly good value. But for anyone visiting Lisbon for the first time, it may be more attractive to stay somewhere closer to the seaside and the historic neighborhoods. The decoration is extremely dated - it may have been the latest trend in the late eighties, but has not aged too well. Nonetheless, it's clean and comfortable enough. It does not have free wi-fi, but as my room was facing the university behind, I was able to use their wi-fi.

Reasonably priced - comfortable and clean, breakfast is fine and internet was included.
I've stayed here on 3 or 4 occasions and will return.

hotel in good location. close to airport and not too far from city centre and downtown. big rooms, with full bathroom, tv and plenty of wardrobe space. windows open too and you can get a smoking room. bar open till midnight. breakfast is expensive and there is no coffee facility in room ( a cardinal sin ). however theres a good cafe directly opposite. staff friendly although not overly so.
