“The Lisbon Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Had a great 4 day stay here recently, with my husband and two adult children. The rooms are very well decorated and quite large. The bathroom was a bit unusual though, as they put us in a disabled room (101) which meant no shower screen and water going everywhere. They couldn't move us as they were fully booked, but they were happy to come in each evening (and morning) and wipe it all up and give us fresh towels, so it really wasn't too inconvenient.

Loved the complementary Port and Portuguese Tarts in the lobby each day as well as the "welcome" sushi and wine which was available everyday from 7:30-8:00pm for free. That made us feel very welcome!

Location is very good, close to lots of nice restaurants, hip bars, clubs (for the 20 somethings) and the railway station (for our day trip to Cascais).

Staff very helpful, but maybe not quite as informed as they could have been. One restaurant they recommended, Sacramento, was excellent; but the Fado restaurant they sent us to was very average and after being told it wouldn't cost extra for the show, it cost 15 Euros each extra! Also they told us there was nothing to do in Cascais, except see the beach, but we saw a fantastic Paula Rega museum there. The bar staff also do not appear to know the local area very well either as they could not recommend a restaurant for dinner (but maybe this is cause they wanted us to eat there).

Overall I would recommend the LX because I loved the location and the beautiful decor (candles everywhere at night and beautiful large wall size posters in each room), but I would suggest you use a guide book or the net and not really rely on the expertise of the always friendly staff.

Room Tip: Room 101 is a disabled room.

Dear Karen,

Thank you for your review, I'll pass all the feedback to the hotel staff. I'm very happy we're able to match your expections a became a plus on your most recent lisbon xperience. Hope to see you soon in the near future.

About the lack of knowledge of the front desk staff, it's something that upsets me. They were trained to know the city as the back of their hands. By any chance could you send me a private e-mail mentioning the days you stayed with us?

Cascais is beautufill (I live there) and Sintra is unique, on a next visit you can't miss it. Please contact us directly to gain access to our special rates, not available online. In the meanwhile keep up with the city news and hotel promotions following our facebook page.

Kind regards

We had a fantastic stay at the LX boutique hotel. The location was right in the center of all the best restaurants and bars. Each morning they had a delicious breakfast buffet and they had happy hour daily with port wine and pastries. The owner, Goncalo, made our trip unforgettable by showing us 'locals only' beaches, restaurants and more.

We stayed there overnight for the new year eve. It was a good experience. Good location close to major highlights even if very close to the station.
They are keen on breakfast hours, good service.
The room design is very funny, especially this large glass part between the bathroom and the room itself.

Clean, modern and well appointed with friendly young staff. Great central location for the sights, rail and tram links to all parts of this beautiful city. Whilst one can walk to most destinations in Lisbon - this is part of Lisbon's charm - it is good to use the bus and rail for trips further afield - such as Sintra. The hotel is also hard by some great restaurants and bars. Breakfast in the cafe 300 metres up the hill from the hotel was fantastic with the best coffee west of Milan. The hotel's restaurant does a fabulous Japanese dinner which you shouldn't miss and the selection of ports is, unsurprisingly, very good.

Room Tip: Go for a room with what is described as a view of the river. You can just about see the river but t...

We knew this was going to be a great weekend in Lisbon as we were greeted so well when we checked in late on Friday night. Check in was quick and efficient. Our room was funky and modern with great Portuguese style. Very comfortable bed and the best shower ever! The hotel bar is cool and is a great place to have a drink before going out. All the staff were so friendly and it really makes your stay great when you see smiling faces! I would recommend this hotel for anyone!

We stayed here in August 2013 for 2 nights. We got a cab from the airport but it is actually very close to the metro station on the red line which goes straight to the airport. We had a room with a view of the street which was fine. The room was a reasonable size and very nicely decorated. Had a lovely window seat and shutters. The room was incredibly quiet..no street noise at all. The bathroom was a pod in the corner of the room which my boyfriend wasn't super keen on but i didn't mind.
We didn't have breakfast or dinner in the hotel but the restaurant looked very nice. There are some really nice restaurants and cafes a short walk up the street.
The location is great for the waterfront and it is a short walk to all the attractions. The Metro is very close and the hop on hop off buses go past the end of the road as does the tram. Would definitely stay here again.

A very trendy boutique hotel in Lisbon with good views. They made good use of the space in the rooms. We had a room with a massive bathroom which I liked but because we were at the top of the hotel, the slanted roof bit into the space quite a bit but overall it wasn't a problem for us. The rooms are beautifully finished and well equipped. We tried the sushi one night and it was quite good. Breakfast didn't have much variation from one day to the other but it had quite a pleasing variety and was always fresh and delicious. The staff was very professional and the hotel is well located. We were about half a block from the metro station which we took to visit other parts of Portugal and to go the beach. The only souring experience we had was from the taxi driver who charged us 10 euro from the train station when his till said 4.80 claiming the rest was for baggage. Watch out for the taxis at the train station they are an unscrupulous bunch. We were also within walking distance from the night area and the Plaza Mayor and felt pretty safe walking around in the night. I loved Lisbon and I hope to visit there again. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
