I could probably write a book, but to be honest, this hotel doesn't deserve the time! If you are looking for a basic hotel, with minimum input from the staff, then this might be for you. So here are the main points..... it's an old hotel it's an uphill 10/15 minutes walk from the sea front it's on a very...

It was a nice hotel with a view of clear and calm backwaters. Walking distance from train station. So one can travel to Lisbon downtown very economically and conveniently. Trains running almost the whole day and night except for a few hours. Good food. Nice bar. Taxi service was good. Free wi-fi connectivity.

This is our 5th visit to Cidadela and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. last year we were on a strict budget (very strict) and we stayed at the Hotel Da Vila which has now closed. The hotel is orientated towards families, the pool area is great fun and snack bar has Gazpacho to die for. The rooms are aged but...

Dear All, I have been here 5 days now with my 6 years old daughter and my husband, together with another family of 2 adults and 2 children. I have never met in my life worse treatment from the staff, completely ignoring from the start. Although the rooms are very old furnished the bathroom leaking if we were treated other...

This hotel was a bit old fashioned but it was clean and comfortable. The room was a good size with a balcony looking out to sea over the rooftops of Cascais. Bathroom was a bit dated, but very clean. Breakfast was okay (if you stayed away from the scrambled egg!) and the swimming pool was great, although be aware it...

I stayed here in June this year with a few friends for a wedding. The hotel is by no means luxury, but it definitely has its purpose! The rooms were well furnished and relatively comfortable. The hotel could generally do with a brand new paint job as it is a bit old-fashioned and worn. Sleeping wasn't great, though this is...

Our recent stay was disappointing. On arrival we were offered one of the larger apartments ( rather than hotel rooms), which after inspection seemed like a good alternative. On our first day i asked two members of staff how the air con worked- both said they we re new, didn't know so would ask maintenance.......he never came. Unfortunately on day...

Our second visit to this hotel. Last time June 2012. Again found staff very courteous and helpful. Great view from the balcony of our spacious 4th floor room. Free parking. Great choice of food for breakfast. Hot and cold. Some parts of the hotel, namely the bathrooms are a bit tired and could do with a facelift but overall, great...

The hotel Staff are very courteous and considerate. One example: I needed to get my son's iphone working. We were facing some complexity. Maria, the front desk manager, to assist us actually had one of her staff accompany my son to the local phone store to make the equipment purchase. That just blew me away! I have not been treated...

In December 2011 and January 2012 and then, again, in January 2013, I stayed with my wife and our two kids in Hotel Cidadela in Cascais. In the first stay, our baby was only 10 months old. We wanted a room where we would be able to sterilize and warm up bottles and prepare some basic food for our baby....
