“Good Layover”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We wanted to continue our Journey to Barcelona, to continue our honeymoon trip. Took a train from Faro, Algarve and reached Entrecampos around 2pm. This hotel is super close to the train station.
Stayed for 2 nights , wanted to go around Lisbon with wifey. Located slightly out of town at the financial district, quite at night . So easy to go downtown , the Metro station is a minute walkaway (Campo Pequeno).
Overall is a decent hotel. Staff are friendly and good decent size room for the both of us. We got the room facing front of the hotel, attached is the view. i liked it.
I would recommend this hotel for a short stay.

Room Tip: Get the room facing front, nice view my opinion

Our GPS did not have problems finding the hotel. Front desk staff was friendly. Updated property. Rooms were very clean, comfy. Very good free wifi. In middle of July, the Room was a bit warm for our taste. Bar attendants in the lobby were not on top of their game, perhaps distracted or tired. Convenient parking garage below. Next door Continental cafeteria was very nice. Across the street a Pizza Hut for the home sick. We found it easy to navigate in our rental car around Lisbon from this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 415 look into a another building towards the back of the hotel.

We stayed in Hotel Holiday Inn Continental for 3 nights...their staff was friendly and the hotel room clean and tidy. Hotel staff helped us with Lisbon-Sintra trip arrangement. The hotel is close to the underground metro station. Recommended for a short stay...

I spent one night in this hotel. The place is OK not far from Campo Pequeno but a bit off the city centre. The rooms are nice and nice and clean. The staff was friendly. With the IHG card I was able to check in earlier. This feels like any other HInn hotel. The food in the restaurant is acceptable but you should eat in typical Portuguese restaurants in town. The price was very good ( for me the only true reason for staying there)

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Rooms were clean and decently sized . Our room was on the 11th floor facing front side. So the view was definitely good. Being an IHG member, we got free Wifi and discounted breakfast rates. Breakfast was below average and except fruits, nothing was good. Sausages were unbelievably chewy. Would advise to skip the hotel breakfast and head to Chafarica cafe (just 200mts from the hotel). Their coffee and food was very good and the total bill for 5 of us was just 21 Euros!!!
The best part of this Holiday Inn is its location. Metro station is just 3 blocks away. But we didn't take the metro as we had taken 2 days pass on the hop on hop off bus (just 18 Euros pp for 2 days). HOHO bus stop is just few blocks away. There is a pizza hut just next to the hotel. Taxis in Lisbon are very cheap. So you can also take one of the taxis lined outside the hotel to reach city center which is just 10 mins from there.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors and front facing rooms.

Decent size room and bath. Hardwood floors which made surrounding rooms a bit noisy. The bed was very stiff and not the most comfy. Had no trouble with internet. Easy to get to several metro stops for city center. Train station only 3 blocks to go out to Sintra (which is a must). Did not eat on property, but did go just around the corner for a coffee shop/cafeteria- very reasonably priced.

We had to stay at this hotel due to work, but found it adequate. Bull ring was only 2 blocks away if that is of interest. Under the ring is a shopping mall with a food court.

Easy to and from airport.
