“Not 5* but very nice”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

-great lobby, nice receptionist who was very helpful.
-the corridor from the lift to the room was strange, with unusual lighting making you feel like you're in a tunnel
-the room was very nice and modern, with electric powered blind - but no wifi in the room and the cable I was provided did not work!
-bathroom was really nice and the the shower excellent.
-the hotel felt new, and it felt empty. It was not expensive, and I think quite new!?!?

Big reception, the 2 men at the reception very friendly and kind. The girl didn't even looked at us. Room is nice but need to be' refreshed! No internet connection in the rooms. Bathroom is orrible, pieces missing and a very bad smell all the time. Breakfast which is luckly not included, is a bad 2 stars quality. The lady in charge of this was yelling from the kitchen during the entire breakfast. No chance to get a coffee at the bar downstairs, the man was completely lost with a table of 5. Nô chance to sleep in thé morning either, they come for cleaning, no matter what u want. No minibar in thé room, nô coiffée machine or tea, only still water. Not expensive, but certainly not à rive stars hôtel. I would not recommand it unless it's just à business travel.

The hotel is modern and comfortable: you can lower the curtains using special button or switch off the conditioner from the bed. Very good choice of food for breakfast: smoked salmon, plenty of fruits and pastries, cheese, cornflakes, mushrooms and much more. There is also a lovely open air swimming pool. Wi-fi is only in the lobby, but you can ask for a cable to use internet in room. Would be happy to stay there again.

This hotel is very conveniently located, close to Campo Pequeno. I stayed there for 3 weeks, during a recent business trip and enjoyed the 5 stars athmosfere, with a welcoming rate. Breakfast was included in the price and it was excellent! Staff is always polite and efficient; Rooms are clean, spacious and modern. Hotel lobby is a pleasant place to sip a drink, relax and access internet. There is also a very good restaurant with a delicious bacalhau dish. Toilet amenities were of good quality and bed was very comfortable. I have been recommending this hotel to my colleagues ever since.
The only thing I did not like was that there was no wi-fi access in the rooms, only cable DSL.

I stayed at the VIP Grand Lisboa Hotel and Spa for my conference participation in May 2013. I wondered the level of the hotel even though it was rated 5 star, because the price was moderate comparatively. However, the hotel was wonderful. The room was modern style ans clean. The location was near to the airport, as it took 10 minutes with the price of 10 Euro. I arrived at the airport at 11 pm, but I could go to the hotel right away. In addition, the metro station was close. I am willing to recommend this hotel whoever wants to find out the hotel in Lisbon.

I have stayed here may times over the past 8 years, normally book via Booking.com or Expedia for the best rates- never pay more than €80 for room only.
Forget breakfast- go round the corner to cafe for €5.00 you can have omlette, juice, toast etc.
Hotel charges €20.00 for same thing.

Rooms are good, bed is very comfortable.
Bathroom is modern- don't expect a bath though, its a shower only.
No wifi.

Room Tip: Not near to lift! smokers rooms are available.

Boutique hotel, modern, but no atmosphere. Had to move here due to our original hotel being over booked. Very trendy ...... Glass .... Chrome .... And modern art but bland. Breakfast was a mixture of cold meats fruit and cereals. The staff seemed very uninterested unless you were Portuguese or an American .... Bedrooms large with king size beds, no breakfast tray...... Would we stay here again... By choice no.
