“nice design”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

Very nice the design related to the theme of the school. Big room and very comfortable bed. Convenient location, quiet and not so far from the centre. Good restaurant, but unfortunately closed on Sunday and Monday. WiFi not available in the rooms, it is a pity.

The accommodation and room I had was fine; clean and modern.

I was only there for one evening and wanted a light meal - so opted to eat in the bar. However it turns out that their bar meals are only the starters from the main menu! So unless you are particularly fond of soup this doesn't really work. Also when I asked for a glass of red wine I was not given any choice in the wine - just presented with a glass full of something...it tasted ok but it would have been nice to have some options. Overall the hotel presents its self as a lluxury boutique hotel. To be honest it isn't. Its ok but the service and food need to be better!

this place was great in all aspects. Concept was fun. Rooms modern, spacious, and comfortable, and we had a great meal where we chose the price. Our room was amazingly quiet in the big city as well. Couldn't think of one thing to improve

I came here for just one night on a business trip so didn't really have the chance to properly sample its delights. A fun school theme throughout the hotel (including in the restaurant) and really excellent service. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This place is awesome all around, Boutique, Hip, Friendly, Cool rooms. The view is not the best, but not needed with the cool amenities.
Xavier in the concierge is AWESOME. He helped me to get a stay for two nights at a sister Hotel in Mancarapacho, that was superb.
Girl at the breakfast buffet is a rockstar, and very helpful.

I will ONLY stay at Hotel da Estrela when I go to Lisbon, period.

Room Tip: Speak to Xavier, HE ROCKS.

Reviewed 3 June 2012

The Hotel Da Estrela is located in the quieter Lisbon suburb of Santa Isabel next to the Lisbon School of Hotels and Tourism. A former school itself, it uses a classroom theme throughout the hotel with information chalked on slate boards and a reception area that feels very much like the Headmaster’s study. The rooms are furnished in a modern and somewhat minimalistic style but I soon warmed to the quirkiness of it all. It is clear that students from the nearby School of Tourism are being used to supplement hotel staff but that in no way detracts from the overall quality of service. The hotel restaurant has an excellent breakfast and the evening meals were very reasonable, with chefs “marked” on their work by allowing guests to pay for dishes with an amount of their choice between upper and lower limits. The hotel is a little away from the centre and appears a little eccentric at first but after 5 days there I was thoroughly enjoying myself. I would strongly recommend the hotel for those who need a change from the usual corporate hotel experience.

Hotel was a former school, which was converted into a small modern Design hotel. The design you may not always find functional, but you feel all was done by heart. It´s loctaed in a quiet residential area, a little away from the center. ,To reach the center you either can catch the foumous tram 28 line or the tube a few 100m away. With walking you will need 20-25min. to reach the major sights. The place does to have a small resaturant, which is managed by the hotel school nearby. You rate the the food and pay accordingly. There are too other traditional reaturants nearby. All in all it is more a very charming than a luxury hotel. Therefore it´s a place, which will grow and live with it´s guests and staff taking care of them.
