If you´re in Lisbon, don´t miss this hotel. For a 3-night romantic package, I paid € 375. This came with a closed garage and fresh fruit everyday in the afternoon delivered to my room. It also included a beautiful view of the Castle of Sao Jorge, free solarium use, a sauna, and a daily newspaper. Subway and bus stops are located right outside of the hotel. I could not have asked for more!
Seteais Palace was built in the late eighteenth century for Daniel Gildemeester, Dutch Consul in Portugal. The palace was extended in the early nineteenth century when it belonged to Dom Diogo de Meneses Vito Joseph Noronha Coutinho, Marquis of Marialva. He built the left wing of the palace and its majestic arch (in 1802) in honor of the visit of Dom João VI, Prince Regent, and Queen Carlota Joaquina. It's a stately neo-classical palace built by the architect José da Costa e Silva. The interior has undergone several restorations has a room frescoed with mythological motifs. The palace gardens are simply stunning, well kept and beautiful. From the garden overlooking the main facade is Pena Palace and the Castle above the mountain and in the garden on the other side of the palace there is a nice view of the surroundings, Palace Monsterrate and sea. Very, very nice. Today it is a fabulous 5 star hotel (one of the best in Portugal) belonging to the Tivoli Portuguese hotel chain, but it is being completely renovated.
A 4-star hotel located in the Marquis of Pombal Square. It was refurbished in 2004, and it's a comfortable hotel located in the centre, but not right in the busiest part of the city. The metro (line 1) is right on the doorstep, and there are plenty of buses. In fact, from the airport, the number 22 bus leaves you right at the hotel. The rooms and bathrooms aren't too big, but they're more than adequate for a city hotel. The breakfast buffet is pretty good. It's right at the start of the Eduardo VII park.
I stayed at this amazing hotel during one of my visits to the city of Lisbon. It is ideal to relax and unwind in the spa while feeling like a prince in a nineteenth century palace, especially at breakfast, in that wonderful salonesde time. The gardens are classified as National Monument and have views of the river Tagus and April 25 Bridge.
One summer afternoon at the beach in Costa Caparica we were able to see an ancient form of fishing. All the time we were accompanied by the incessant clamor of thousands of gulls and very explanatory video about the results.
The Smart Hotel is a converted mansion in a residential area just 10 minutes walk from the Estoril Casino. Spacious rooms, a small garden that surrounds the house and pool. A couple of important details, have a garage and WIFI at no additional charge.
We were having dinner there one night and loved it. Excellent dishes with very good presentation and very friendly. The price was 20-35 euros depending on if you drink wine and have a dessert. For us it only cost 19 euro with water. It's a place, that although isn't very cheap, is well worth it.
The Travellers House is the best youth hostel I've ever stayed in! It is located centrally (3 minutes walk from the Plaza del Comercio), clean, nice, and with a generous and outgoing owners, for example, for New Years Eve they organized a beer-drinking contest to promote his "open bar" , a cooler full of beers that everyone could help themselves to. The decor of this place is fantastic and makes you forget the fact that you are having to share a room with 3 or 5 people in wooden bunks, and have a communal bathroom (which obviously is separated for boys and girls). I think they have a private room but I don't know what it costs or if it is hard to reserve and if it is usually always full. In the lounge, there are several nice sofas and beanbags and it is a space where you can hang out and listen to music or read one of the many travel guides at your disposal. There is also a nice kitchen that can be used, a large dining room and a lounge with computers and free internet. It is advisable to book a month or more in advance because everyone knows that this is THE hostel in Lisbon.
Micasaenlisboa is a bed & breakfast in the Graça neighborhood, one of the most real and authentic Lisbon towns, without tourists. It is between two viewpoints, Graça and the prettiest town in Lisbon, Senhora do Monte, on the tram route 28. All 4 bedrooms have beautiful views of the city, from San Jorge Castle, Chiado, to April 25th bridge. In addition there is a small garden where you can have breakfast, drink a wine in the evening, or lie and do nothing in the company of Lola, the friendliest dog in the world. The owner is a Spanish woman who fell in love with the city and this little gem was opened in summer 2007. It has a collection of beautiful vintage furniture and lamps, and both she and the friends who help her, give advice about thousands of sites that do not make the guides to help you make the trip about doing what you love, not what they say in tourist information offices. On Saturdays Ladra accompanies you and helps you to haggle at the better known places and meet all sellers. Rooms come with private bathrooms, wonderful breakfasts (they feed you lots, but it's worth it), wifi and complimentary bar. The best room, the attic, has a very low roof, but lovely bathroom and a terrace with amazing views (I uploaded photos). They will expand, but still do not know when, so you better ask.
I visited this hotel in May 2007 and the truth is that I would like to go again. It is a 4 star hotel in a quiet area but with good communication links to the city center by metro (the station is virtually opposite and about 4 stops to th centre). It is a 4-star hotel opened in 2002 and comprises of a total of 171 rooms, cafe, restaurant, spa, sauna, gift shop, conference rooms ... There is a garage but not necessary because you can park on the street without any problems (although it is an ORA area). The room was very spacious: It had two 105cm beds, TV, minibar, etc, and free internet (ask for a network cable at reception). It was clean, and the decor was modern and new. We slept very well, as it is a very quiet and peaceful. The bathroom was also very spacious with a hot tub and full range of amenities. Of course there were radiators for heat and air conditioning for cold air with an adjustable thermostat in each room. Accidentally, we ordered breakfast in the room, as we did not realize that it is one hour behind so we got confused about the time we wanted it. There was no problem, we called reception and within 10 minutes it arrived. We ordered two continental breakfasts and the truth is that two people could ask for one breakfast. The supplement for ordering room service breakfast 4 €. The common areas were also in line with the rest of the hotel- current and modern, the lobby was very large, without walls separating areas, with a piano and courtyards that give a sense of spaciousness. There was also a computer area with free internet service. The staff was very friendly and spoke perfect Spanish ( we even called them to book us a table for dinner in a restaurant). In the basement there is a spa (which unfortunately was closed), use of which is included in the price of accommodation, it had a sauna and an indoor pool. They also offered other payable services such as massage, to join the water aerobics classes by appointment), and other water activities. Of course, I would highly recommended this hotel.
The Jerónimos 8 Hotel is located in the city of Lisbon. This is a great option, with fully equipped rooms for your comfort. All rooms have air conditioning, heating, high speed Internet, WIFI, free cable TV, hair dryer, safe, and mini bar, among other things. Parking is free.
I was lucky enough to stay at this luxurious hotel on my recent trip to Lisbon. It is conveniently located next to the Marques de Pombal Square, close to the historic centre of the city. The entire hotel has great service, and looks picture-perfect. It has elegant, functional decor, sure to make you feel comfortable. It has a bar, restaurant, free wifi, business centre, parking, fitness room, laundry, babysitting and other services. The rooms are beautiful, spacious, and with all the details perfect - stereo, plasma screen TV, the most complete minibar I've ever seen, and an immaculate bathroom with bathrobe, slippers and more. The views of Lisbon from the room are also spectacular. The breakfast buffet is just wonderful, very thorough and very efficient service. Overall the friendliness and professionalism of the employees caught my attention. Being a luxury hotel the hotel's private parking seemed somewhat expensive, as did the drinks at the bar, but I suppose that's common in hotels of this category. In short, you'll have a stay to remember here.
This hotel is part of the Sol Melia group and I have been there a couple of times and it has very good prices, so I recommend it. The Sol Peniche is located opposite the beach of Alfarroba (on the road that indicates Baleal) and about 500 meters from the center of the town of Peniche. It is a good hotel located, as I say, very close to the beach, and major tourist attractions. It has 102 rooms including 4 rooms that are wheelchair accessible. The rooms have a balcony, bathroom with hairdryer, AC, satellite TV, safe and telephone. The hotel also has a restaurant, buffet breakfast, two pools (one heated), two elevators and parking. I recommend that you stay towards the entrance of Peniche, near the beach are. The rooms are spacious and comfortable almost all of which overlook the pool or the beach (more like the dunes) and because it has good prices, except during August.
This 4-star hotel is located in the fishing village of Ericeira 50 kilometers from Lisbon which can be reached by motorway in about 30 minutes. It´s located on the edge of a small cliff and when you look out your deck, it´s like you´re on a boat because the cliff really hangs over the sea. It´s a delight to see the sunset from the terrace too. It´s a very nice hotel despite being very large. The staff is polite and very pleasant and they make you feel right at home. It has a very nice bar with a man who plays the piano and sings in the evenings. The rates are pretty cheap except in July and August during high season. There are two superimposed terraces and three pools, one saltwater and one for children. In the middle of the upper terrace there´s a covering that resembles the deck of a ship. It´s wonderful to watch the waves break from this spot. This hotel is a very special place to me so I recommend it to everyone. I usually go at least three times a year!
A quiet hotel near the Park Metro Station, near the center (you can easily walk, although with the city's transport it takes five minutes). Our room was good, comfortable and updated with a very large bathroom and separate sitting area with a sofa bed. The staff was friendly and attentive. The number 44 bus can take you to and from the airport, although it is better to take the Aerobus, which costs 3.50 euros, because then you can take all the buses you want throughout the whole day, even trams and elevators. The Santa Justa bus, which charges by the minute, comes free with the Aerobus ticket if you use it the same day.
Great hotel, the Ritz Lisboa has views and a great deal. It's in a beautiful, romantic city that makes you go back in time. It has reasonable and affordable prices and the food is very rich and varied, specialty fish and cod that's good and fresh tasting. Ideal for getaways.
The Penha Longa Hotel & Golf Resort is located in a large national park that was once the summer residence for the royal Portuguese family. It is a luxurious hotel that has two golf courses and a palace from the 19th century. The piano bar is the ideal place to enjoy a drink. All the 177 rooms have spacious and luxurious bathrooms and it also has a fully equipped gym.
A fantastic hotel, right next to the sea. It has over 30 luxury rooms, a pool, and restaurant. The entrance to the pool is 50 euros, but there are several places nearby where you can bathe in clear water. The restaurant food is great - the cod is exquisite. A quiet place at the old lighthouse (hence the name).
The Turim Iberia Hotel is a modern 4-star hotel in one of the best areas of Lisbon with 86 comfortable rooms. It has of a quality restaurant, free Wi-Fi and a breakfast bar. The buffet breakfast is served in the restaurant in the morning. The hotel provides room service, laundry service, breakfast room, currency exchange and internet wi-fi throughout the hotel.
The Mundial Hotel is in Martin Moniz Square, near the Station and Rossio Square, in a central area of Lisbon. It's 4-star and 350 rooms that were renovated a few years ago. A few meters away there are bus, tram and metro stops, so it's a good hotel for the entire city. I don't really like the area because after a certain time we saw "strange looking" people in the square and we had a bit of bad feeling at dusk.
This is a 4 * hotel in Lisbon, next to the Art Museum. It has a bus and tram stop nearby, so although it's not in the centre, it's easy to get around town. As for the hotel, it's simply spectacular. It's in a renovated palace, with a neat style, very welcoming. On the top floor is a library with a fireplace, and a terrace offering beautiful views of the River Tagus. The bar serves a wide variety of drinks to savour on the terrace. The rooms are nice, just the right size - not too small, but also without any empty space.
They have all the details you would want: air conditioning, TV, high speed internet, full soundproofing, a well-maintained bathroom, bathrobe and slippers, umbrella, desk, TV, and DVD player. As for breakfast, it has a wide variety of sweet and savoury offerings, with juices, cheese, and a bottle of cava. If weather is nice it's served on a great outdoor terrace, and if not, in the back room, which is also very nice. If you want to enjoy Lisbon in a good hotel, where the staff are very friendly and everything is perfect, this is your place. Only thing, the price starts at 155 € for a double ... but it's worth it.
Hey: maybe going to hostels may seem like it's for rail-riders or broke college students (which, basically, isn't far from reality) but really if I'm sharing this hostel it's because I would recommend it to anyone. Moreover, you can find some of the best hostels in the world in Lisbon according to the trusted site Hostelworld, so it's not such a bad idea to stay in one of them on a visit to the city. Located in the neighborhood of Alfama (the nicest neighborhood in Lisbon), it's a typical Portuguese building, with its courtyard, the clothes drying in the air and its people walking around cheerfully. From reception to the kitchen, to the rooms, the decor is carefully thought-out, to capture the decadent vintage charm that is Lisbon. More: 16 euros per night including a complete breakfast, and it has a terrace with benches for eating lunch and/or sunbathing with the Tajo in the background. I wanted to stay and live there.
I have good memories of this hotel in a lively neighborhood of Setúbal, near the boardwalk but still a tad out of the way. Although we arrived by car, we parked a ways away and decided to wander the streets and enjoy the ambiance of this neighborhood. One night after some dinner and music downtown, we went and found ourselves in the middle of the neighborhood festival. It was a unique experience!. I can say that Setubal muscatel is second to none!
The rooms were fine and the service was friendly. The price (50 €) included a dizzying breakfast with many options to start your day. It was an excellent value for money. What I liked most was the spectacular spiral staircase. Highly recommended if you want to be near Lisbon, but also on one of the most beautiful bays in Europe. The natural park is stunning and worthy of being discovered. I have to say that we really enjoyed our three-day tour of the park and Arrábida.
Olissippo Hotel is located 7 km from the city center, and 1.5 km from the airport. The hotel has 182 modern, soundproofed, and fully equipped rooms, all with bathroom, air conditioning, minibar, satellite TV, and telephone. The hotel offers a buffet breakfast in the mornings, and has a restaurant where travelers can enjoy offerings of both Portuguese, and international cuisine.
The Pousada Dona Maria I, in Queluz, is just opposite the National Palace of Queluz, so cannot miss it. It is a historic building with a pink facade. Most notable is the clock tower with a bell. It has 24 rooms and 2 suites. Just a little down the road from the inn, there is a bus stop with connections to the town centre and train station, from which you can link to Lisbon or Sintra, among other attractions.
We started our holiday in Portugal by visiting its capital, Lisbon. We were looking for a central hotel, and chose the NH Liberdade because we've enjoyed this chain in the past. The location is great, a few minutes walk from the squares of Rossio and Restaurateurs. It's just opposite a subway station, and there are several bus stops nearby. The area was full of luxury shops. The room was great, with all the usual amenities you'd expect from an NH (sponge, shaving kit, sewing kit, etc). It had a mini kitchen with a Nespresso coffee machine, but refills are charged. The breakfast was varied with fruit, lots of pastries, assorted juices, cereals, sausages, and coffee. There was no hot breakfast, but we don't care about that. Free wifi in the lobby. The rooftop pool was a bit small, and the water was freezing. There was a sort of mall downstairs with different types of restaurants. Room service is slow, and of poor quality. The price we paid was 98 € per night, with breakfast. The cost of parking is 17 € night.
The Avenida Palace Hotel is unique for their special features and is different to traditional hotels, making it a very pleasant place to visit and enjoy. Its greatest feature is that the hotel was renovated in the 19th century. Its location is divine, it's oriented to Plaza de los Restauradores - a beautiful tourist place to visit in the heart of Lisbon. Also there's a view of the majestic Castle of San José from this hotel.
