“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013 via mobile

Good value for the money. Clean and confortable hotel. Little far from center, but taxi cost only 5-6euro, so no big problem with communication. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very recommended if you are in Lisbon. Optional breakfest for 7 euro. Wifi only in the lobby.

Our stay in Lisbon coincided with a Benfica-Fenerbahçe match and, probably because of that, there were very few cheap deals available, but this hotel luckily had one. We liked the service and the location, the room was nothing special but ok for a 3-star establishment. Getting to the historical part of Lisbon is quick and wasy as a metro station is a block away. It was no problem leaving our bags at the hotel upon checkout as our flight was late in the evening. A taxi ride to the airport on a workday afternoon cost less than 10 euro.

we stayed there for one night for the newcastle v benfica game, overall the hotel was very nice. it was clean, rooms were nice and quite big, and theres a safe in every room which you set up when you get there. only bad point is the hotel location, in terms of walking, its very far away to get to the main parts of lisbon, but taxis are very cheap so it doesnt really matter. overall, good experience and hotel

Myself and nine friends have just returned from the VIP Berna and simply have to praise the staff's efforts at the hotel. The occasion was my stag party and upon arrival the check-in staff made sure to provide us with enough keys for all of us and help with locations to make us feel at home. The rooms were fairly simple but had enough toiletries and other bits to aid those of us who had forgotten!

The location was a little out of the main bar/restaurant district, but a metro station was just around the corner. The area is perfectly safe and has enough bakeries and small bars to cater for a quick drink here or there. The breakfast at the hotel is buffet-based and contains some fairly decent hot and cold food.

A special mention must go out to the hotel barman, Bruno. He did everything he could to haul us out of our Sunday hangovers with cheese toasties and a few invigorating beers! A cracking guy; see you at the reunion!

I'd recommend this hotel for couples and friends alike who want a simple base to explore the city from.

This a good hotel if you get a good deal. It is located near the Bullfight ring, and just 2 minutes walking from Campo Pequeno underground station, which will take you to the most turistic part of Lisbon in 10 minutes.

The hotel could do with a renovation since most of the furniture and the decorations it seems to be from the late seventies, however it is very clean. Staff were professional and nice, nothing special but nothing wrong. If I am back in Lisbon I will choose this hotel again as long as they have a good deal.

We stayed at this hotel in August 2011. This hotel was outdated and it could get really dark in the hallway in the evening. The room we stayed at had a reasonable size and the toilet had a tub. The staff were friendly and helpful. For the price we paid I couldn’t really complain that much, it was closed to metro station and there were restaurants nearby.
If you want a clean place to stay then this is the hotel for you but do not expect anything fancy as what they have is very basic.

Room Tip: get a room that is not closed to the elevator as it can get really disturbing while you are asleep.

Near the subway, in the center of Lisbon is a low cost hotel with the advantage of its location. Service is ok and rooms are regular. The main advantage is the location and price. Do not take breakfast there as outside you can easy find a nice café for it. If you want an upgrade for some more 20 Euros you can find nearby others hotels of this group with higher level of comfort

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the old part of the hotel. They have a new building but not often used and you can ge...
