Vip Executive Saldanha Hotel
Ranked #185 of 255 Hotels in Lisbon
Reviewed 11 December 2012

I stayed last weekend at the VIP Saldanha Hotel.
The location is very good and convenient for me - my daughter lives next door - but there many other hotels around as good or better than this one to stay (Alif Avenidas, Real Palacio, Real Parque, for instances).
The price I payed was very reasonable (thru bookings.com) but what I contest is star rating: 4 stars.
This is not a 4* property: the room is ok, but breakfast is similiar (or even better) than a common 3* motel in any USA highway: few option, no fresh fruit to choose, even the bread that in Portugal is excelent is nothing special.
So, stay here if you get a good price. Otherwise, for the same price range, you have better options around.

Staff is very helpful: late at night the guy at the receptions arranged for us a half day tour in Sintra, Cascais and Esturil for the following day, which wasn't that easy. The interior is stylish and modern. A large window in the room, which is extremely clean. Silent at night. Comfortable bathroom. Good choice of food for breakfast.
Two minor things.
1. When you search the hotel don't ask people for Fernao Lopez street - they simply don't know about it. Ask for a big shopping center, and the hotel behind it.
2. There was some strange irregular ticking in the ventilation system, we noticed it at the evening and early in the morning.

7-storeyed building nearby to the historical center. Very purely, comfortably, silently. Good noise isolation. There is wi-fi. Pleasant, benevolent personnel. We lived on the 2nd floor. For the child there is an additional bed in advance. A minibar was absolutely empty – only an opener for beer bottles and pair of glasses.
Near hotel there is a shopping center and two metro stations of a yellow line of Saldanha and Picoas, bus stops and taxi parking. To the historical center no more than 10 minutes.

We stayed here for a weekend break in Lisbon. If you want an atmospheric Portuguese casa, this isn't it. However, for a weekend of sight seeing and getting to know Lisbon, it offers a well priced, clean and good qulaity accommodation. It is near the Saldanha metro which is on the red line from the airport and is one stop from the Gulbenkian and a couple of stops from the centre of Lisbon. Nice buffet breakfast from 7 -10 each day in the basement.

A good reasonable hotel close to the center in a god area.
The only drawback is the room lightning. Entering the bathroom at night you put on the light in the whole room.......
Breakfast is quite basic nothing special.

Perfekt location, Bus 745+44 going directly to the airport, Metro 300m away, Shopping Mall 50 m on the other side of street. Very friendly and helpful reception. Room was clean and largewith refrigator which was not full of alcohol (you get this downstairs at the bar) so you could place your stuff inside. For the price (260 € for 2 persons and 4 nights) invincible.

Pros: spotlessly clean, modern amenities, value for money
Cons: rude, unhelpful reception staff, a little way out of the city
We found our room to be very quiet - although we did ask for a room at the end of a corridor, so I think this helped (although our window was much smaller than other rooms).
They tried to charge us a second time for a late check-out...make sure you receive a receipt when paying for items.
The air-conditioning had a sign on it asking guests not to alter (what’s the point of having air-conditioning that you are not allowed to set?)
The mini bar was empty, however there was a price list for it (again, what's the point?)
We didn't have the hotel breakfasts, as there's a food court in the basement of the shopping centre right opposite the hotel - where I imagine there's a greater choice and less expensive.
Will try somewhere else to stay next time. Lisbon is a fantastic city, so will be back!
