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.
- 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
