“Fantastic Location with Great Service”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

This hotel was really great, especially because it is only a 2 minute (or less) walk to all forms of transportation that is available in Lisbon (train, metro, bus, and tram), but what really made this hotel special were the concierges. From having them make a dinner reservation for us to bringing us an extra chair for our room, they were pleasant, helpful, and always did everything with a smile. We switched rooms after the first one, because our first room was tiny and didn't have a view, and they let us upgrade to a room that faced the river for only an extra ten euros a night (when it should have been an extra 30 euros a night). The elevator was down for a couple of hours on our last day, but they called a mechanic and by the time we got back everything was running smoothly again. The rooms are typical European rooms, small, clean, and nicely decorated. The breakfast place that is attached the hotel is AMAZING; we ate there four times. Overall we had a really good experience with this hotel, however there was a little street noise since we were at the front of the hotel, but a couple of earplugs easily managed the noise.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river will be susceptible to street noise, but it is manageable with ear plugs.

We were upgraded free to a superior suite which had great views across the river and a glazed roof above the bed to watch the stars. The room was glorious. A great location in a part of the old town with restaurants, clubs and bars that party till dawn at the weekend. Saying that the hotel is well soundproofed and is a quiet romantic oasis in the fun and hubbub that is Lisbon's Bairo Alto. The best hotel in the location by far.

We've stayed at the place for 2 nights and it was very good experience. I loved the staff encouragement and flexibility, the location was perfect right near the Bairo Alto and all the best restaurants are 5-10 minutes away. The room was warm and calm, clean and the view was right to the river side!

Stayed originally for 6 nights but due to train booking issues stayed for an additional 3 nights. There were no problems with extending our stay, staff even let us keep our upgraded room at the original room price per night.

Hotel is in a good location with 2 train stations nearby, however we mainly walked around Lisbon. Was very close to many places to eat, bank just at the corner, bus stops across the road and a supermarket about a 5 mins walk at the train station.

Staff were always very helpful with helping us search for bus times and organising a taxi to the train station. They also let us keep our bags in the baggage room for 8 hours on check out.

Wifi is really quick with no password, we had no issues with connecting or disconnections during our stay. New TV with a few english channels (not many, but better than other European hotels).

As I registered as a LX Club member, we were given an upgrade upon check in (this is upon availability) to a Superior room. Our room was quite large and on the 4th floor, it did get noisy at night on the weekends as the hotel is near pubs and we were woken up a few times. But as we were not in a rush to go anywhere so we slept in every day so wasn't an issue for us, something to be aware of though.

Bed is very comfortable, so easy to fall asleep in. House keeping did a very good job in keeping the room clean. People who complained about the glass windows in the bathroom, not sure why as there are blinds which you can turn to stop anyone from looking in. The bathroom does have a slight smell but we just closed the bathroom door, I did notice this at random places in Lisbon so not a fault of the hotel but probably just city piping. Yes there is a slight smell too at the lifts but it didn't bother us as you're not in the lifts for very long. We were able to keep 2 large suitcases open through out our stay. Lots of storage space with a cupboard and drawers.

We didn't have the breakfast, so not too sure on that.

Tip:
Register for the LX Club and book through the website it is definitely the cheapest available rate and fingers crossed you will get a free upgrade.

Hotel was ideally suited. Breakfast lovely, plenty of choice. The room nice, but not much of a view. Did not complain as only there for a couple of nights and it was quiet. Staff wonderful and attentive.
The area was ideal, near bus, trains and trams

If you're heading to Lisbon for the weekend, this is a great place to stay. Smart, clean and perfect location to walk pretty much anywhere. The rooms are spacious and modren and the hotel feels cosy. The reception staff is very helpful and even offered as a free upgrade to a superior room. The only thing that bothered us slightly was the dry air in the room - this may have been due to certain settings of the aircon we couldn't change.

Other than that, would have no hesitation in recommending this if you're looking for location, value for money and good service. The cakes and complementary Port in the reception area was a great treat!

We stayed at the penthouse suite of the LX boutique for 4 nights. The suite is incredibly beautiful with soothing blue hues and camel tones. There are skylight windows in the penthouse which makes you literally sleep under the stars at night! The penthouse has a small balcony overlooking the sea and the city. Amenities are of a very good standard. We also benefitted from a 10% discount through their facebook page promotions. though the suite is a bit more expensive than the average rooms, it is worth paying the difference. The hotel has a great restautant serving sushi at night. Very good variety of items for breakfast and you couldnt ask for a more central location. Staff very courteous and helpful. Would stay there again!

Room Tip: Pick the penthouse. Its worh it.
