Lisbon City Hotel
Ranked #171 of 255 Hotels in Lisbon
Reviewed 2 January 2014

I stayed in this Hotel with my boyfriend for 2 nights as we wanted to celebrate new year's eve in Lisbon. The hotel is new and modern but very basic. We stayed in a 3bed Bedroom with no balcony. Breakfast costs 7 eur/Person/a day so we decided not to have breakfast there. The rooms were not very cosy so the hotel didn't impress me much. The location is good, it's a 20 minute walk to the city center and the metro is only a few meters away. You can park at a hotel close by but it will cost you 10 eur/day. Since we have only payed about 25 eur a night, it was OK.

Got a great 'winter' rate on their own website

Couldnt really fault this hotel, it appeared to be either new or newly renovated. We took a hire car and were afraid ti would be a nightmare to find, in fact its on the main road from the airport into town, 5 km from airport.

We opted for a slight smaller room but it had a balcony and great view over the city(room 602). We pulled up outide the hotel and they told us where to park.

If i was going again;
Might be temped to splurge on the suite which if i understood right is only 10€ per night extra and has a great view over the river and city.
Would consider their 'Tour Package' which gives you tickets on the old fashioned trams (route 28 is only about 200 m from the hotel).

Eat in restaurants in Barro Alto if you want atmosphere (try Artis) about 20 minutes walk. Just down the road is apparently a famous seafood restaurant made famous by Anthony Bourdain. We will try it next time, packed everytime we walked past.

Room Tip: Go for the suite if you have the money

Stayed here for 4 nights in November. Rooms small but fine for our needs; very clean, serviced every day.
Reception staff friendly and helpful.
Some noise from the street outside but after a day of walking and sightseeing, we slept so well that the noise didn't really bother us. Would recommend the hotel if you're looking for value within reasonable distance of the city centre.

Not in the nicest district itself, but was next to the metro, 28 tram stop, and less than 5 euros cab to centre districts.
The rooms and hotel are stylishly renovated, super clean, and an amazing value. Much better than many other budget-friendly hotels I've visited. Plus, there was a gorgeous, clean bathtub in our room.
Skip on the breakfast, the many cafes on the same street offer better selection, and MUCH better coffee, for less price.
Only 12 euros cab from the airport, or as I said, about 15 minutes by metro.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have a bigger balcony. Front rooms face busy street and have some noise.

Stayed here Sept 2013, we stayed for 5nights Sat-Thur.

Upon check in around 7pm we was told that, a window in our room was broken therefore we had to go and stay at a different hotel. Not a good start as I think the hotel was actually overbooked but just wasn't honest about this.

We went to the other hotel stayed the night and returned in the Morning to check-in. Our room was small, clean and had all the necessary things, safe/tv/free wifi/balcony etc.

Hotel is located 5 stops away from Rossio square which is where lots of things happen and close to Baixo Chiado. The hotel is bang in the middle of two metro stations both within 2-3mins walk of each other.

Before booking this hotel,I had read about the homeless shelter next to the hotel. This is true but it's not as bad as people make it out to be. Yes there is homeless people around 5pm, when the center opens to accommodate their needs.
I saw some people start to gather in the morning but they kept themselves to themselves on the other side of the hotel and we didn't feel unsafe.

We had a pleasant stay, my only complaint would be the PILLOWS! They were awfully flat and gave you terrible neck/shoulder pain. We ended up putting the blanket under the pillow which helped.

We loved Lisbon and this hotel was well priced so no major complaints.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony

For three stars hotell this was perfect. Rooms without a balcony are little bit dark but with balcony there is anything you need for two and still enough big in both ways . Location was great and it was easy to go in and out. :)
Breakfest was simple and there was no variation but you can manage with that very well. The staff was friendly and we could change a room with balcony even if we didnt get it right away. We got even a bottle of wine because of my birthday as a present :)
Nobody tried to steal from us and even there were a center for poor and homeless people nearby the hotell they didint bother us.
Lisbon is a beautifull city and warm even in november and only thing which made us nerves sometimes was those who offered drugs about 15 times during our stay for four days in this city. But not nearby this hotell. Keep a good work!!!

Room Tip: Rooms with balcony!

nothing romantic but practical with all one could ask for ( good bed, balcony, central, wifi, bar, ...), an honest hotel, and it´s location is perfect as one can walk to everywhere from it - the breakfast is also just right, considering you are in a non breakfast culture country, the variaty was good, incl. fresh fruits and wholesome breads...

Room Tip: some rooms open up to the side road, they are more quiet, or less noisy
