“As stylish as you'd expect from a Fontecruz hotel”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

Having stayed in a Fontecruz Hotel in Seville last year, we had high expectations of this hotel, and largely, we weren't disappointed.

Firstly, the location is incredible, located minutes from the Avenida tube station on the very fashionable Avenida Liberdade, just a hop, step and a jump from the centre of the city.

Secondly, the reception and public areas are very stylish indeed. Arguably, not as impressive as their hotel in Seville but still very cool and beautifully designed.

Thirdly, the views from the rooms at the back of the hotel - we were on the 7th floor - were stunning. The room itself was of a good size and very quiet, and as stylish as everything else that the hotel puts its mind too.

My only slight criticism is that in its effort to be unswervingly cool and stylish, the room was just a little too dark and dimly lit, and a little cluttered with lovely furniture when one or two less pieces would have made the room feel more spacious.

All in all, the Fontecruz Hotel in Lisbon is a classy hotel in a prime location, and at £90 per night represents really good value.

Room Tip: Pick a room on as high a floor as possible at the back of the hotel. We were in room 707.

I wanted to love this hotel. Lisbon is a fantastic city, a feast for the senses. Until you get back to the hotel. It's really dark. I mean black walls, black tile, black furniture, in the lobby, hallways and room. If you yearn for the disco era, this is your place. No gym, no pool.

If you forget to leave at least one light on in the room, when you place your key in it's slot to power the room, you are in complete darkness. The light shades are black (no kidding) even with all lights on, it is dismally dark in the evenings. Bathroom is entirely black, except for the annoying 3 sided sloppy-wet-floor-shower, and one bizarre touch of a silver desk for the sink.
The sink itself has a design flaw in that there is always a puddle in the bottom that covers several inches, never drains all the way.

Service was meh. Stood at the desk a couple of times with no eye contact for quite a awhile.
Strange, because the city is full of wonderful and helpful people.

Now for the good news. This hotel is sound-proofed. Yes indeed, really quiet and worth every penny for the peace. If quiet is at the top of your list, this is your place. Location is excellent, really close to Avenida subway station, super easy to use. The street scene is renowned for the trees, designer shops, cafes and live music, antiques sales on select days of the week.
So - great location, quiet hotel, very comfortable bed. I don't mean to knock this hotel. I wish they would put more light in the room and lighten up at the desk. They are new and have got lots of potential.

Room Tip: not 106, view is of air handlers on the ajoining roof, eye level. Try to stay off of 1st floor, unle...

This 5 month old boutique hotel is brilliant. Stylish rooms with huge beds, enormous bathrooms with nice stuff in them.
Great location in the middle of Lisbon. Good breakfast and really nice staff. Excellent free wi-fi.

We paid something like 120 euro a night for 2 people in July 2012 : if you think what this would get you in London its mindblowing.

We recommend this hotel both for business and pleasure.

I stayed three nights in this hotel, recommended by a friend. Yes it is, recommendable, however, being very perfectionist, there are some details that needs improving. Reception and restaurant/bar service are sometimes lost for example. I guess this is because Hotel had opened only some months ago. In any case, rooms are wide, decoration is excellent and location very convenient as it is close to the main attraction in Lisbon. Breakfast was very good.

Im an that kind of person that likes a good design hotel but if it doesnt compromise the comfort.

Fontecruz is exactly that..you have a sleek but yet homie and comfortable environment. Some areas are a bit dark, for example the corridors, but the rooms are huge, very cosy, rugged floor, comfortable bed, big lcd and a walk in shower that fits too people having a shower perfectly.

I have nothing to point out regarding this hotel.

Regarding the location its brilliant! 15m walk from Chiado and Bairro Alto.

What a pleasure. The ambience way soooo good and the staff could not have been more helpful.
Decor is great everywhere. There is a beautiful courtyard garden to sit out away from traffic and city noise.
Location couldn`t be better right in the heart of things.

Brilliant restaurants nearby and OHHHHH the shopping :-)

A new hotel for Lisbon and we are so pleased we found it.
Due to stay there again in July so will try and remember to take some photos.
