Stayed at alvorada in August of this year 2012.We had a great stay.It,s within walking distance of the beach,our balcony overlooked the casino,which is right across the road.The bar was very reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly.Breakfast in the morning was buffet style and plentiful.Over all a very pleasant stay,

After doing a lot of research on different websites I was expecting a lot better . The staff did not make you feel welcome ... could help with the luggage when we arrived . The room was of good size ... .The beds were separate and uncomfortable . To use the Wi Fi or safe there was a fee to pay. Breakfast was boring usual scrambled eggs and frankfurters . The choice of fruit was poor and no fresh fruit juice. Overall there could be more choice . The shower curtain should be bigger . Bathroom was ok. Stains on the carpet. Having read some really good reviews I expected better, would I go back - no . Shame really ....

If you can request a room on the upper floor with a view (4th floor) like we did, go for it. The reception and breakfast staff were not very friendly but did open up a bit if you asked them about what to do in the area.

I would not recommend breakfast at this place. We stayed here for 3 days, and each morning (arriving to eat breakfast at various times), the hot food was luke-warm at best, and cold most of the time; they put the warm food in a container, but the container does not have a heating device. Food was the same monotonous variety every day: cold scrambled eggs (supposed to be hot), cold hot dogs (supposed to be hot), oranges, green apples, juice, croissants, ham, cheese, 3 kinds of cereal, and juice.

There is no pool at this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on floor 4 towards the Casino/water.

We checked in here on the 23 of August 2012. We booked the hotel after reading the somewhat promising reviews, however we were sorely dissapointed. The lady on reception was not the most helpful nor welcoming. We were given one room key between us. The room was really grubby, the chair at the desk was filthy with stains. The balcony outside hadn't been cleaned and there was one dirty plastic chair and table. There was just an air of grottiness about the room. Breakfast was ok, which was a surprise.
Would definately not stay here again or recommend anyone to. We were really surprised with the reviews this place recieved as they did not reflect the hotel at all.

We have stayed twice in this Hotel in two months, the rooms are excellent, the staff are very friendly, the brekfast is limited, there is plenty of parking around the hotel, its about 5 min walk to the beach, good restaraunts near to the hotel. the hotel has access to a pool in another hotel which is 5 min walk away. we will be going back there a gain soon

Room Tip: Rooms with a view to the front that looks at the casino, we have found to be the best.

This hotel is relatively inexpensive compared to other hotels located in downtown Lisbon. The train ride from Lisbon to Estoril is about 25 minutes and then you are 5 minutes away from the train station to your hotel. There are several restaurants near the hotel. There is a huge casino in front of the hotel but it was very quiet during our stay. The hotel offers an alternative for those interested in a quiet evening after a hard day walking through Lisbon since it is not located in the city center. In addition, you can go for a nice walk along the beach and get to Cascais, which is a beautiful town located only a few kilometers north of Estoril. There are many interesting places to see in Cascais as well as many good restaurants.

I got this place at the last minute and booked it at excellent rates. When I got to the airport an announced it to the Taxi Driver he said, oh wow, nice!!. (However I suggest that you travel from Lisbon Airport to Estoril where the Hotel is, by Bus, As its only 20 minutes away...and it cost me 60Euro !!..ouch!!... Anyway the hotel is opposite the largest Casino I have ever seen in my life !!!... and plenty of restaurants of quality around, decently priced. The staff are impeccable and talk about cleanliness!!..wow!!.. The room was excellently decked out with a Balcony!!.. Rooms maticulously cleaned and replenished with everything!!... However no kettle or beverages there!. Restaurant for brekfast very well laid out, and everything there. A great place to stay, I will certainly be going back !!

Room Tip: Make sure room faces the Casino, as you can see the Sea from there, and get the 4th Floor (top)
