“Not bad, but not great either”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

We spent a few nights at the hotel during our vacation. The location isn´t bad, the centre of Lisbon is in walking distance. The hotel itself is on a very busy street and the surroundings can be quite noisy and busy as well, especially as theres a lot of nightclubs basically right next door. The walls and windows are well insulated however it changes dramatically if you open the window. But thats the price to pay for staying in this quarter.
Nice lobby in the hotel with friendly staff (unlike the staff in the restaurant, mostly we had the impression we´re bothering them). We arrived by car and to find a parking spot even for a few mins to unload the luggage is honestly a nightmare, so I wouldn´t recommend it at all.
Our room was really tiny and the bathroom is basically a box-in-a-box, with glass walls. The opaque glass ends unfortunately somewhere around 1.6m height, so if you need privacy in the bathroom, this could be tricky. Bed was OK, we slept well, but tbh we were already quite tired after 2 weeks.
Breakfast quality was nice, although there were also better and worse mornings. One day the strawberry juice was diluted with water, on the other day it was fine. Personally, I found the breakfast overprized, although we didn´t leave the hotel starving.
Summary: I probably wouldn´t return again. It wasn´t bad, I´m just not convinced about the value you get for your money.

Dear Tomazzo,

Thank you for the time you took to review your xperience @ lxboutiquehotel. From what I've read you had an OK time with us which is surely not enough for our standards. In case your interested in discussing some of the issues that bothered you, please send me a private e-mail.

In what concerns to the noise, I'm happy to say that the schedules issue is finally over! This weekend was the last these bar had such a late closing hours authorization! About the rooms, please take a look at our Riverfront category and you'll find the "problems" solved.

Hope that you'll give us a second chance on your next stay in Lisbon.

Extremely comfortable room with stylish and tasteful decor. Friendly well informed staff, a very helpful young crew, and terrific breakfast spread, their warm croissants were unbelievable.
Great convenient location.
I would definitely go back.

As we visited Lisbon for the first time we just book a nice hotel we found online. In the end we got a great Boutique Hotel in a nice part of the city - we could get everywhere by foot and the Cais de Sodre train satiation from where we took the train to Cascais and Estoril was just around the corner. Also the Airport bus - best way to get to the city and back to the airport is also around the corner. Back to the hotel: the rooms are very nice and though it is located on a busy square the windows are soundproof and we had a sound sleep with a view of the Tejo.

Room Tip: take a room to the Tejo!

I stayed here with a friend when we visited Lisbon for a day of shopping, and a night of dancing.

From the moment we arrived the staff were really helpful, getting us into our room nice and early, helping with recommendations and booking a restaurant for us for the evening.

The room was beautiful, with an amazing view of the river. When we finally got to bed in the early hours of the morning we discovered the super comfy beds, and fantastic soundproofing to guarantee a good nights sleep!

I'll definitely be back!

The hotel is in unmatched location- steps away from main station /metro and buses and walking to the best sites , close to small restaurants etc , but most of all providing a typical Lisbon nostalgic athmosphere , very clean ,relaxing, decor was beautiful, staff very helpful .

Amazing decor- lovely design aesthetic. Great service- the staff were very helpful. Good location, being near the Cais de Sodre metro and train station. O'Gillins, the Irish pub round the corner has friendly staff and screens live football matches. It is also near the only Catholic church with English mass in Lisbon.
