Marques De Pombal Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 March 2010

The staff and service at this hotel turned a long weekend into a perfect holiday. Staff helpful and smiling. Room on second floor was quiet and bed very, very comfortable. Buffet breakfast was well-run as well as delicious. Good location, near all attractions (if you are prepared to walk) and near metro/bus stops (including airport bus stop). Drinks in hotel bar not expensive and as we had secured an excellent nightly rate through hotel's own website this was an unusually good value holiday in the eurozone.

This is a really nice hotel in Lisbon. It is in a great location at the top of the Ave de Liberade. The metro is right outside the front door. The hotel is spotless and it is well staffed. The staff were attentive and could not do enough for you. Breakfast was very good and they were willing to provide extras. We ate in the restaurant one evening and what a great view from the windows. The food was excellent and the waiter very attentive. I was given a twin room but wanted a double and they immediately gave me another room. Free internet in the room was a bonus. Bathroom restocked and spotless each day. A great hotel that I would recommend to anyone and I will definitely be staying there again.

We arrived at 9.30am and were checked in immediately which was a huge bonus. The reception staff were very polite, efficient and spoke excellent English. Standard double room was slightly larger than we were expecting and the bathroom was also of a reasonable size and spotless. Breakfast was fine but nothing special. Not a large choice of fruit, plenty of pastries and bread, cooked selection was poor with grey-looking scrambled egg and fatty bacon. Still, was perfectly adequate and at least the staff were very friendly. We weren't inspired by the hotel's restaurant menu and thought that the bar staff were unfriendly, so found a pleasant place on Avenida Liberdade, approx. 10 minutes walk only, called Quebra Mar. We did a recce of the area surrounding the hotel and found very few places to eat. Luckily the Metro stop just outside of the hotel is so convenient. Our second night we went two stops to Restauradores and found a great Italian restaurant called Valentino's. Another plus with the position of Marques de Pombal is that the Aerobus stops close by making the to and fro from the airport very easy.

We stayed at The Marques de Pombal over the New Year period - our rooms were clean - small but with absolutely everything needed. The reception staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful providing information on venues to celebrate the New Year. The metro stop is only 50 m from the hotel and is an excellent way to travel around the city. A bus stop is also close to the hotel. We ate in the dining room on our first evening and the meal was served in a relaxed atmosphere, the food was good and good value. Breakfasts in the hotel were very good. We would recommend the Ribadour Restaurant - only 400 yards from the hotel - the tiger shrimps were unbelievable - and our friends enjoyed their pork dishes - not cheap but well worth it. The Taberna Iberico - also close by - was another "find".
We would recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay there again.

Just back after 4 nights with my Mum in Marques de Pombal hotel in Avenue de Liberdade in Lisbon.
Fabulous hotel, great location. Entrance to the metro is outside the door. Buses also across the road. Lovely rooms - recently renovated in nice style. Ate in the restaurant the first night and had lovely meal at reasonable price for a hotel.
Good breakfasts with Nespresso machine for coffee enthusiasts!!!
The staff here cannot be complimented enough on every level - they could not be more helpful. Could not recommend this hotel strongly enough.

We thought this hotel was great and looked better "in the flesh" than on the internet.The location is great - on one of the most prestigious avenues in Lisbon - and it's in a very safe spot.For what we paid - c.£40 a head via hotels.com - it represented excellent value.Rooms were "compact" but manageable and the decor looked recent, beds were comfortable,bathroom spotlessly clean and very good triple glazing made your room an oasis of calm.Did not find the aircon intrusive.Breakfasts were very good and staff will prepare omelettes/fried eggs if requested.Hotel staff very helpful, location perfect i.e. tube station on the doorstep or it's a very pleasant 15 mins downhill stroll to the city centre.Would say it's aimed at the business traveller so makes for a very good base.Would class it as a a very good 3 star rather than a 4 star.(Didn't try the bar or restaurant.) Would definitely go back.

We stayed at the Marques de Pombal during October 2009. It was a very nice hotel in a great location. On tree-lined street with entrance to Lisbon's modern, clean subway system (Blue Line) right across the way from the entrance so you can many places in this interesting and old city quickly. Good restaurants short walks down the boulevard. Large park a couple of blocks in the other direction. Rooms were tastefully modern with large tv screen, free cable internet (and some more variable free wifi in our room), modern, clean bathroom. Our room looked out on the street, and if you opened window traffic noise was loud, but had good climate control air conditioning so you didn't have too. Free buffet breakfast --not great, but not too bad. Only two small drawbacks: the bar also serves as a restaurant; good for snacks but regular menu mediocre and overpriced. And although most of the floors are non-smoking, some smell of cigarette smoke occasionally drifted down through the vents to our room. Not all the time. Otherwise a good value and all in all a great base to explore Lisbon.
