TRYP Lisboa Oriente Hotel
Ranked #108 of 255 Hotels in Lisbon
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Let's get down to the core of it - it's not going to blow your socks off. That's ok, I like (most) of my socks and you don't always want something super snazzy.

What you'll get is a place that is 'fine' for business - a nice place to get down to your boxers, have a shower and play candy crush in bed. Nothing special here. The location is very business focussed, so you could stay for that, but you'll need to take a metro or train to get into the centre. No hassle really but worth pointing out.

There is a mall in the area, pretty much an identical copy of one you'll have back home. The river is quite nice but, again, very modern and not quite the quaint Lisbon you might be thinking off.

The rooms are a bit standard but clean. No probs there. Bit on the hot side actually.

However.... Whichever reviewer said that the breakfast was great has obviously never eaten breakfast before. Fruit straight out of a tin, service poor and the coffee a bit like the dredges of my grans bedpan. Not worth paying your, your bosses or your husbands cash on. Go to a nice little cafe to the left of the entrance. Much better.

All in all though, the fiat panda of hotels. It will get you there in one piece but you're not going to win any attractive ladies with it.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled on business

My partner and I stayed here for three night during which my partner was attending a conference near to the airport, and I was let loose to explore Lisbon for three days.

We checked in fairly late (about 10.00pm). The hotel is a two minute walk from the Oriente Metro/train station and about a five minute hop in a taxi from the airport (about 5 euros and if you want to take a taxi be aware there is often quite a queue at the airport for a taxi).

On check in, we were given a room on the seventh floor which on first appearance seemed wonderful. However, after being in the room for a while, we found the toilet was constantly filling, and when we tried to flush, to solve the problem, the handle fell off the toilet! On informing reception of this, we were told they knew about this problem but thought it had been solved and would 'endeavour' to find as a new room, but that the hotel was quite full that night. I would not have stayed in that room if it had not been changed, as it would have been insanitary (no way to flush the toilet) and my review would have been quite different. I was a little shocked that reception even contemplated renting a room in which the toilet did not work, however we did get a new room very quickly.

Both rooms were VERY spacious, very clean and on the higher floor, not overlooked which meant you could make the most of the large floor to ceiling windows without feeling your privacy was compromised. Good sized fridge/mini bar in the room with a complimentary bottle of water.

There was also free Wifi, iron and ironing board, safe and a great wide screen TV with a lot of free TV channels in a variety of languages.

I wasn't a massive fan of breakfast, but my partner enjoyed his and there was a lot of choice.

The staff were very accommodating regarding booking a lot of taxis for our party.

The hotel is also directly opposite the 1998 Expo site which includes a large shopping centre, cable car along the seafront with great views, restaurants and very close to the Oceanarium. A good half day to day can be spent exploring the local area. The metro gives great links to Lisbon and the plethora of different attractions that that can offer. Centre of Lisbon is about 30 mins on the metro (1.50 euros each way) and is about 10 euros in a taxi.

I would definitely stay again if needing a hotel in this area.

Tryp Oriente is great hotel located close to the Tejo river, Expo area and right next to the Oriente Metro/Railway bus station. Great service, very polite staff, good breakfast, close to shopping center Vasco DG. Lots of bars, restaurants in the area as well. Would gladly come back again. The only problem I had in it was the magnetic key card sometimes, but other than that .. no problem.

A great hotel for a last night in Lisbon (before an early flight). Friendly desk - somehow, we were upgraded to a wonderful room (719) with a Tejo view. A large, clean room with a bathtub etc. A good bar, too.
Close to the Oriente metro/railway/bus station, the aquarium, the Tejo river, and an inexpensive taxi ride to the airport.

Stayed here for one night in Room 714! Great room with double aspect windows in the large bedroom. Bathroom also had a window with views! Loved this hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast was very good. We also had the "menu of the day" lunch which was excellent value in the restaurant. The only thing missing was tea/coffee facilities in the room however we did receive a bottle of complimentary water. Very convenient to the airport with a subway station about 200 meters from the hotel that goes to the airport - only 3 stops.

After getting bumped from our USAirways flight home, the desk at the airport booked a room for us at the Tryp Oriente. A welcome place to wait 24 hours. Comfortable beds and linens, roomy bath, wifi, delicious dinner and breakfast. If there had been a jacuzzi in the house, it would have been perfect!

We stayed one night prior to an early morning flight. Hotel staff were professional and efficient, and the room was spacious. It was also quiet despite facing the railway station, as we were located on an upper floor with double glazed windows and an extra door to seal out hallway noise.

All the usual hotel amenities were provided including free Wi-Fi, A/C and room safe. However for a business-oriented hotel there was a notable lack of electrical outlets in the room.

We ate in the restaurant for dinner but the food was bland and unremarkable. For exhibitionists there is a floor to ceiling window next to the bathtub -- we left the shade pulled down!"

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Right in the heart of Parque das Nações, the Hotel Tryp Lisboa Oriente was recently refurbished with "Expo 98" and the Oceans as its background. At the entrance, visitors are met by a series of ocean aquariums together with a canvas, in the reception area, representing the great architectural landmarks. The rooms emphasise elegance, modernity and comfort, and are characterised by the marine environments and the harmony of the sea smell, alternating between the blue of the rooms looking out towards the Tagus and the coral red of those which lend a view of the heart of the city. They have free Wifi access, a Television with satellite channels, a lounge area, telephone with a direct line and air conditioning. The "Bistrô&Tapas" Restaurant, which extends out to a pleasant esplanade, displays the most iconic symbol of Expo 98: panels which reflect the universality of the event and convey the popular Exhibition passport. The restaurant serves international breakfasts and offers an à la carte service and a dish of the day, based on the "Bistrô&Tapas" concept. For a light meal, take advantage of the bar where organic forms give body and soul to the drinks bars and you can admire a reproduction of a Portuguese stone-paved roadway. Located close to the FIL - Lisbon International Fair, the famous Oceanarium and Lisbon Casino, and just a few minutes away from Lisbon International Airport, the Tryp Lisboa Oriente is situated around 15 minutes away from the historical city centre. Just a short walk away you can find a full transport network, including the metro, buses and trains. The Parque das Nações is an excellent choice for visitors interested in culture, history, food and drink. ... more   less
