We stayed at the VIP Diplomatico from 14 - 18 May 2008. We read a lot of hotel reviews and were non the wiser to which hotel to choose: so many differing opinions but we found the hotel to be more than adequate for a few nights and would not hesitate to stay there again, or hesitate to recommend it. It was a good walk down to the centre and back - but we like to walk so it wasn't a problem for us. There are ample busses just round the corner from the hotel if you prefer. The rooms were very clean and we especially liked the little ante-room between the corridor and the bedroom which mean't we didn't hear any noise from the hallways. The previous reviewer didn't like the beds but we loved them - the bedding was immaculate and having tea/coffee making facilities in the room was a real bonus. The breakfast was repetitive but that would go for any hotel. There was a hot / cold savoury selection; sweet pastries; fresh fruit salad / yoghurts and fresh fruit. The coffee was especially excellent. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. The Airport Shuttle bus stops right outside the hotel (both ways) and is €3 each. We took a taxi to the hotel which cost €14 - although there was only €6 on the clock - someone else we spoke to had been charged €25! Going back to the airport we had the bus to ourselves! Lisbon was great and we will definitely be back - a trip to Sintra is a must only €3.60 return on the train and extremely easy to do. If you turn right as you come out of the train station there is a little scenic tour bus which costs €4 return. This takes you up to the palace which was spectacular.
