“Cozy, Quality City Stay”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

We were very happy with our decision to stay at LX Boutique Hotel. The Hotel is well placed if you like to do a lot of city exploration but be able to take a relaxing afternoon break in your hotel room in between adventures.

The front desk staff was extremely helpful any time we had a request or needed assistance. The rooms were very nice quality and cozy (as was the entire hotel). The sushi restaurant attached to the hotel was a great place to dine and when we had questions about nearby restaurants the front desk staff was again, always helpful with directions and tips.

The hotel also has courtesy servings of the famous local custard tarts and glasses of Port in the lobby in the late afternoon and as you pass through on the way to your room you get a sense of a calm and great travel buzz from fellow hotel clients just enjoying a moment over the treats.

Staying at LX Boutique Hotel was one of the key highlights of our stay in Lisbon.

My partner and I stayed for three nights in a room on the 1st floor (Xpanded Citylights). It was a surprise birthday weekend trip for my partner and the hotel did not disappoint. The room is generous (I went for more expensive Xpanded room) and the photo on their website was accurate.

Benefits were:
1) Location - really easy to get to from the airport, easy to get to Chiado (where you can catch the famous Tram 28 to get around the city)
2) Clean room and, judging from other reviews, I recommend the Xpanded rooms if space is important - our room (101) was a very decent size for a city hotel. The bed was huge and the mattress was firm - just how we like it).
3) Staff and the service - this is what makes this hotel stand out, and I travel a lot for work and I never experienced such a friendly and accommodating staff before. We loved the fact that, upon arrival, we were welcomed by a bottle of port as a birthday gift for my partner (and the Pasteis de nata). Or when the manager got in touch to offer help in any bookings and reservations for e.g restaurants...

There was only one disadvantage, which was:
1) Location - while it is handy, it's surrounded by bars and clubs open until very late. We didn't have any trouble sleeping even though we can hear sound every now and then (our room faced the main road, not the backstreet where they were located) but if you are a light sleeper this may bother you a bit. I am glad that we paid more to have the Citylights rooms...

So, overall, we both loved the hotel and the charming staff. Thanks for making us feel so welcome!

Room Tip: Choose the Xpanded rooms if the room size is important to you, and worth paying more to have either...

We loved this place. Small rooms but great river views and great location.The staff are very nice, make a real effort to help out. The location is great to get around all areas of Lisbon. We could not hear the raging parties down below. Room service charge is a little too much.

Room Tip: river views on the 3rd floor are good.

The LX Boutique Hotel is very niceley located within walking distance to the main sights.
It is a very nice hotel with very good service and a nice breakfast.
We arrived by rental car and the parking garage is 15 Euros per day. The staff parked our car in the nearby garage. We booked one of the Xssential rooms, which are quite ok if you are planning to see the city. However the view might be not that nice and the rooms are rather small. The beds are super comfortable and the whole room is very cozy. The room was very clean and during the night very quiet.
We also had breakfast in a very nice and colorful breakfast room. The food was good - fresh juices, any kind of eggs and the typical sweet pastry.
Over all it is a nice cityhotel. If you expect very big rooms you'll be disappointed.

Dear Anna,

Thank you for the time you took to review your most recent xperience with us. It was great having you with us an I hope we'll see you again in the near Future.

You have perfectly resumed our Xssential Rooms. Big enough with a ultra confortable bed to rest from a short city break. Xploring lisbon involves lots of walking around and we figured the most valuable asset we could have in the rooms would be make them as confortable as we could.

On your next visit to Lisbon don't hesitate to contact me or the hotel directly so we can get you the best possible deal (not available online).

We had high expectations for LX Boutique based on the Trip Advisors reviews, but were somewhat let down. We knew in advance that the rooms would be small in return for the reasonable rate, but the service was a little disappointing. We had problems with both the air conditioning and the safe in our room not working, and neither were fixed after requests to do so.

The lack of air conditioning was problematic for two reasons - the extremely heavy comforter and the aforementioned street noise that kept us from opening the window. Based on TA reviews, we requested a room on a higher floor (we were on the 4th of 5) to help avoid the noise, but to no avail. Around 3am each night the club downstairs would start playing music that would nearly shake the windows - and this is coming from someone who is usually a very heavy sleeper! Let's just say I could sing along to "Billie Jean" word for word at 4am.

Finally, while the location does have a few perks (vicinity to Metro stop), overall it is not as convenient as some other Lisbon neighborhoods. The bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity are not exactly tourist-oriented and seemingly attract a more hard partying clientele (which may be perfect for some travelers if that's what they're looking for).

Dear Guest,

Thank you for the time you took to review our property. Im sorry to feel ew couldn't match you high expectation on this xperience, and I truly hope you can give a second chance in the future.

About the a/c we did had some problems that had already been addressed and solved. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience. On the noise issue, I recognize the in some sporadic nights in a few specific rooms, this can be a set-back.

Nevertheless, let me say that the schedules are been adjusted to Central European standards, and that I trully believe this will be a non-issue in the near future. To avoid this, on your next visit, please send us an e-mail before booking so we can get you the best possible deal (not available online) and point out this issue on your message.

Kind Regards

We just returned from a 6 days trip to Lisbon and stayed 5 nights in an Xpanded riverfront room with an infant of 9 months old. This hotel has exceeded my expectations and has those few extra 'touches' which makes it different than the rest.

The rooms are splendid (excellent WiFi), very charming and tastefully decorated. Upon arrival, the baby bed and baby bath were present in the room and the extremely kind staff was always present for any needs.

There is a train and metro station next to the hotel (Cais do Sodré) which takes you anywhere you need to go in Lisbon. In addition, Baixa Chiado and Bairro Alto are in short walking distance which are great areas for breakfast, lunch, dinner, evening out, shopping, etc.

This hotel is really neat. The rooms are very small, but very cleverly designed. The mural over the bed is also very nice. The location is great - right at the base of Barrio Alto, but also very walkable to Praça do Comércio, etc.

The only negative thing was, at night you have to close the window/curtains, due to bars/clubs below. And it seemed like the thermostat in the room did nothing, so no ventilation at night.

Also, don't go to the Fado that the hotel recommends - A Severa. A regular-sized bottle of local beer was $10, asparagus appetizer was $18, etc. Our bill came to ~$90 for one bottle of wine (cheapest they had), one entree, and an appetizer. It would have been much cheaper to go to a place that simply charged a cover charge.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the uphill-side of the road have loud clubs below, that stay open until about 5am. The...

Thank you for your review. I'm happy to read we've been a plus on your most recent Lisbon Xperience.

About the a/c I would appreciate if you could send me an email identifying the room you were in so I can personally check if there is any problem. We had some recent issues but are already solved. With your help, we've removed the restauant "A Severa" from our recommendations.

Hope to see you seen in the near Future. Anything you may need from Lisbon don't hesitate to ask.
