“Didn't want to leave! Great location, Beautiful Hotel, Amazing Staff!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We arrived at the Internacional Design Hotel to find it right in the center of the city, perfect for walking to everything Lisbon has to offer. The hotel is cheeky ("Hi, I'm glass," says the front door), beautiful (each floor is themed) and offers a kind of trendy luxury. We loved that we each got a free cocktail when checking in, and found ourselves wanting to visit our hotel bar again when normally we are the ones that only come back to the hotel to sleep! The breakfast was absolutely amazing, seriously the best free breakfast I've had at a hotel: mini portuguese tarts, crostinis with arugula and pear, fresh cheese and ham, eggs, grilled vegetables, so many different kinds of fresh juices (my favorite was the pineapple, apple, mint) and an espresso machine that made great lattes!

To top it all off, the staff there are amazingly friendly and helpful, especially Camille!

We're thankful we discovered this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any of our friends!

Very good quality and rooms appeared to be brand new; cannot fault anything. Loads of restaurants close by and the architecture shows some of the history.
Staff were very helpful and could not do enough.

I loved this hotel. It was more fun vs. high design, but well done. It seems to made up of two buildings, so the hallways are a bit byzantine with different half levels and and lots of corners, but it makes it feel a little more cozy and private than anything. The staff was very friendly and incredibly helpful. I had to make a last minute dinner reservation with coworkers who joined me unexpectedly, and after asking a few questions about what I wanted in a restaurant, they called and booked a fantastic restaurant that was exactly my style. They put me in a corner room and it was great. I also love a bathroom that has a window. The breakfast room was quite nice and bright. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling to Lisbon. (And I would recommend anyone who hasn't been to Lisbon to go--It is one of my new favorite cities)

We recently stayed at this hotel as a family of 5 intending to stay for 4 nights but had to leave after one night as my father in law passed away suddenly and we had to cut our holiday short to return home.The staff at this hotel were so understanding, kind and sensitive to our situation. This included both reception staff and our wonderful porter.

The hotel itself is beautiful with tastefully designed rooms and an elegant dining and sitting area. Unfortunately due to our brief stay we were unable to fully explore the hotel but enjoyed a delicious and beautifully presented breakfast on the morning of our departure.

The reception staff arranged our taxis to the airport and helped ease our difficult situation. We regret that we weren't able to complete our vacation but hope to return to the Internacional Design hotel in the near future

This hotel is a gem. Walking distance to so many things and the staff is friendly and attentive. We were able to check-in upon arrival at 11am. Room was larger than expected, clean, and nicely laid out. Received a coupon for a welcome drink, as well as one free bottle of water daily. Would gladly stay here in the future.

Room Tip: Request an outside room, if available.

Stayed for just one night while in Lisbon to meet with a potential new client. Hotel was easy to find, exceptionaly well decorated and the staff could not be faulted (from Reception through to the Bar Staff). Recommendation and directions to Sacramento was certainly a highlight for the evening.
They were also happy to extend my checkout enabling me to return after a long meeting to freshen up before my next flight.
An exceptional experience and one I intend to repeat.
