“Great Location, Great Bar/Restaurant and the Best Roof Top Bar in the City”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

I visited Lisboa in December 2012. I stayed at the Hotel Mundial twice during my travels in Europe. It was perfect for walking to the old city and shopping in the various "praças de commericais" near the hotel. There is a lot of foot traffic around the hotel day and night so be careful at night. A female friend walked to the ATM alone one night and was mugged around the corner from the hotel one evening. The hotel staff was very helpful in assisting her get in contact with the authorities and the embassy after the incident. The rooftop bar/restaurant made the stay at the hotel the best. We had an impromptu birthday party with friends and the staff accommodated our group the best!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor. There is a lot of traffic noise from the Praça Martim Moniz in front...

I stayed in this hotel 3 nights at the end of February. It's a very big hotel with lots to offer to the guests. The room was nice and spacious and it was spot clean. The huge and varied selection of items offered for breakfast is impressive. You are absolutely spoilt for choice. Mundial offers beautiful city views in the restaurant and stunning views in the roof top bar which is a must visit.
Locationwise, you can not ask for better, Mundial has the perfect location,very close to shops, restaurants and main station Rossio. Hotel staff and reception were friendly and welcoming and all in all Mundial is a great property, definitely recommended for your stay in Lisbon.

Hotel Mundial has a really great location. It is situated 2 blocks from the Main Square, with a multitude of shops, restaurants and bars to satisfy anyone's desires. For the less adventuress, there's even the familiar Golden Arches at the square.

At times, the staff seem unwilling to help or maybe they may not have enough knowledge and or training to provide great service. Although clean, the property is old and needs updating. For me, when Wi-Fi is not include, it's always a negative. Air conditioner was permanantly fixed on 22 degrees Centigrade, which is not cool enough fo comfort.

The breakfast was adequate with enough choices to satisfy most people. Nothing fabulous but adequate and average.

Room Tip: Room at the back of the hotel provides a nice Easterly view of the castle on the hill.

We booked for a 2 night break 15th February. On arrival staff were friendly, we got to the room and despite booking a double room we received a twin. Staff changed us to a double on 8th floor,it was small and the bathroom not the cleanest. We went out to explore and found the location to be as per reviews really good. The first night was not good the bed was like sleeping on the floor, if you like a hard bed with sparse linen then this is the place to stay. The night was cold and the old heater/AC didnt work.
Went to breakfast if you like going back in time, if you like the canteen culture then great but not for us. We went to starbucks for free wifi as the Mundail charge even in crowded reception area and booked the next night in the sofitel up the road. On booking out the staff wanted us to wait to speak to duty manager we chose not to and left

Well, I will not say again same things as other reviewers - the hotel is in a great location, walking distance to all great places in centre of Lisbon. Generaly the hotel is well kept, nice staff. No issues with cleaning. Our room was very spacious, only drawback was the view from our first floor windows (in fact bellow the roof of back yard building) - but we stayed there for one night accomodation during our flight change in Lisbon, so it was acceptable. For longer stays, make sure to ask for higher floor. The furniture is quite dated, but clean and functional. The beds are very hard, if you mind that, that may be an issue for you. Good breakfest with wide choice of anything you need in the morning (just the coffee is terrible..) The rooftop bar is just beatiful, stunning - a must to go.

Room Tip: Take higher floors for acceptable view - 1st floor rooms has bad view to the yard

This older hotel is very centrally located in the old town.It is close to shops,restaurants and galleries.Could not find better for walking.
The rooms are clean and have nice views of the city.They are a decent size.Breakfast buffet had everything you could want.
All in all a great place at a good price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the castle

The hotel is very centrally located, we could walk to many of the must sees; the neighborhoods had great coffee and pastries, and eating choices. The staff was helpful when asked a question. The rooms are typical European, however bigger than in Italy, breakfast typical. Best thing about the hotel is it's location especially if your room has a view of the castle!! Recommend
