“Best 5 star in Lisbon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

This is a truly impressive 5 star hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are not large but the public areas are very impressive. The hotel has an excellent pool and spa. The public areas are really impressive.
The hotel has one of the best executive levels I have ever seen and the snacks and drinks all day make it really worthed to pay the extra.

Chose this hotel to celebrate a birthday and could not have made a better choice. This hotel is excellent in every way. Extremely high standard and the selection at breakfast was better than any we have stayed in including 6 and 7 star in Abu Dabi and Dubai. There is a beautiful outside terrace area should you wish during the day and a delightful pool and spa. The executive room with access to sky lounge with all day snacks and drinks is really good. Although not completely in the city centre as some people mentioned the location is perfect. A metro station opposite with 10 min journey to centre or taxis are fairly cheap. A lovely bonus, a pianist plays a few nights a week in the bar (classical or otherwise). Really enjoyable.

Room Tip: Choose an executive room or suite. High floor. No problem with lifts.

This really is more of a business hotel but is still good for a vacation if you can get a good rate. The inexpensives metro, trams and public transport mean you're not far from the city and it's less than ten euros to the airport by taxi. The spa is luxurious but over priced but the breakfast are fantastic.

Although this hotel has a business feel about it you don't feel out of place as a tourist. Like others on here I paid a little extra for an executive room (still a bargain). This gave access to the sky lounge with views over the city, newspapers, TVs, and free high quality snacks and beverages including wine and beer. We had breakfast in the main dining room on the first morning, it was a little bit crowded but we got a table ok. After we realised we could breakfast in the sky lounge, we did. It was almost empty every day. My omelette was cooked tableside on a lamp and the service was great.

We travelled in and out of the city by metro using a daily ticket. The station is right across the road from the hotel. It's about ten minutes to get to the city and trains are very frequent.

The Gulbenkian Museum is 15 minutes walk and there are restaurants around the hotel including a brilliant Brazilian Churrascaria.

Room Tip: Get an executive room for access to the sky lounge

We stayed at the hotel for four nights in July and our stay was amazing. We booked the executive room as there was practically no difference in price. This allowed us access to the executive lounge which is on the 24th floor and had snacks and drinks all day till 10pm and free wifi and use of computer and printer if needed. Our room was on the 22nd floor and the view was amazing - view of the water duct, the bridge and the port especially at night. The hotel is very nicely decorated and modern and kept spotlessly clean. The garden area and grounds are beautiful. The room was not very big for an executive room but did not bother us. The staff are very friendly especially Danial in the executive lounge who after after a few days, knew what tea we have for breakfast. The breakfast was plentiful with hot breakfast, pastries, fruits and cereals. The hotel is not near to the old town and there is not much around apart from the zoo. There are a few restaurants near the hotel. The metro stop is 5 minutes walk away across the road and a bus stop towards the old town 2 minutes away. Some Lisbon hop on- hop off buses have a stop about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. I would highly recommend the hotel for those who do not mind being far from the old town and where most attractions are. It was great value for what we paid.

Room Tip: The view from the higher rooms was really amazing especially at night. Worth checking if the executi...

Given the location and the facilities, this is primarily a business hotel. It's pretty fabulous, great rooms, comfy beds. The Sky Lounge is a great place to relax and have breakfast. The hotel is about a 10 minute taxi ride from downtown Lisbon. If you are looking for a very smart well managed and maintained hotel to do your business or conference thing in town. This is as good a place as any.

I also felt like waxing a bit about Lisbon in general as follows.

I was going to do a travel review, but I think an essay is more called for. I’m not actually sure what an essay is or why I’ve called this one but it seemed appropriate. Her Majesty recently celebrated being Queen for an awfully long time and gave the nation a day off to thank us for not having her turned into a pensioner while some republican moved into her house. We felt the best use of this day off was to catch an aeroplane to Lisbon as everyone else would be standing in the street drinking lemonade while waving some flags and bunting. It was a good decision because I have never seen London Heathrow airport so bereft of travellers.

Plenty of policemen with machine guns though. On the policemen walking the concourse with machine guns, is this really necessary? Have they ever pointed one at anyone? Even when the terrorists drove a van into Glasgow Airport it was our own new Chuck Norris, John Smeaton, a baggage handler who did all the beating up of the bombers. I don’t want to look at machine gun-toting coppers while I am checking in for my flight or buying a coffee. Why don’t they have some guys in the roof or something, ready to rappel down to manhandle any suspicious characters lingering in the wrong place? Or just shoot them in the face from a distance like in the Bourne Ultimatum at the train station? Anyway, I digress.

We flew in a half empty plane to Lisbon. I don’t know much about Portugal really. It’s a small country underneath Spain on the map. I know my Mother in Law doesn’t like Portugal. She doesn’t like Portugal because she met some rude Portuguese people in Brazil in the 60’s. Yes I know. We’ve discussed her before. I’ve been to the Western Algarve which is covered in half-finished concrete jungles because everyone ran out of money. This is because nobody wants to spend £200,000 to buy an apartment in a half-finished development, which will never actually be finished. Because there is much of this going on in the sunny bits of greater Iberia, Portugal is now one of the P.I.G.S.

P.I.G.S is Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain. They are all broke because their banks lent all the money to people with no means of paying it back. That’s a whole other story for cleverer people than me to explain to you. I’m just here to talk about Portugal and Lisbon in Particular.

Portugal was once one of the great main countries of Europe, with France, Great Britain and Spain. Portugal has an astonishing naval history for such a small country. Of course the British had the biggest Empire but in those days Britannia really did rule the waves. The Spanish made some inroads into South and Central America in a fairly brutal fashion but the Portuguese got Brazil. They also got Mozambique, Angola and some other lesser known African Countries, Some large chunks of India, The Middle East. A bit of Asia and some islands in the Indian Ocean. The French got some bits of Africa and an Island in the Pacific.

This is not a history lesson but in 1755 there was an Earthquake of such magnitude in Lisbon that the city was all but destroyed and something like a quarter of her population was killed. The quake started major new philosophical movements across Europe about the force of nature versus god or something like that. Blokes like Kant, Voltaire and Rousseau sitting around in café’s smoking cigarettes talking in impenetrable sentences about the nature of events and so forth.

The science of Seismology was also born out of that quake. Most profoundly affected though were the Portuguese colonial ambitions at such a key time in history for establishing or fighting over trade routes and general flag planting. The Portuguese had to concentrate on rebuilding one of the world’s greatest cities of the day. Queue lots of political arguments and power shuffling. This all had a large contribution to the decline of Portugal as a major player on the world stage.

Portugal is a lovely country though and Lisbon is a Beautiful city. Quite hilly with very distinct districts. The Central city is easy to walk about in if you don’t mind a few hills. There are many plinths with a statue of a man on a horse. They like a plinth, do the Portuguese. The people watching is brilliant in the multitude of street restaurants where you can enjoy selecting food from a multi-language menu with pictures of the food. I’m not a fan of menu’s with pictures of the food but you’d go hungry during the day if you get too fussy about it.

There are many great caricatures of national characteristics to observe. The English like to sit in a vest, ideally with a soccer logo of some sort and order beer by the litre while swearing a lot. The Germans have a penchant for bizarre spectacles and the men still like to have amusing facial hair. Also for some reason German ladies of a certain age have adopted what I have dubbed ‘the Merkel walk’. Watch her walk, she doesn’t walk like a regular person. This seems to have caught on among middle-aged German ladies. There are many girls wearing tight-fitting clothing in pastel colours who appear to be visitors from Miami based police shows in the 1980’s. I didn’t stop to speak with them but I believe they may have been from Brazil.

There is much to see and do in a couple of days in Lisbon. The huge Mosteiro dos Jerónimos in the Belem district is a must. Loads of museums and galleries. We tend to wander about soaking up the general atmosphere interspersed with a bit of people watching while seated in a wicker chair. Followed by more wandering about before choosing somewhere for beer, wine and food. We get bored quickly in museums. The People of Portugal that I have encountered are primarily engaged in ferrying me about in a yellow Mercedes Taxi, serving me food and drink or selling me things. They are uniformly very nice friendly and helpful. Far more so than, say, the Spanish who must get fed up with noisy Brits being sick in their streets every night. They certainly have always given me that impression when serving my drinks with a scowl.

The Portuguese are even polite and friendly when you catch and accuse them of pulling a fast one. The fast one is the ‘couvert’. We have learned that in seemingly all dining establishments there is a routine that goes like this. Your waiter will seat you and quickly bring a selection of delicious canapés to your table. You will feast upon the canapés and make a selection of your supper. You will most likely have a splendid meal of high quality seafood cooked superbly. You will ask for the bill which will include a number of items you didn’t order. This is the couvert. It adds about £10 to your bill and makes you argue with the waiter about the morality of bringing things you didn’t ask for, not telling you they would be charged for and then telling you this is normal in Portugal. So either eat the couvert and pay or wave it away.

Taxis in Lisbon are pretty cheap, think about a third of a London Black Cab for an equivalent journey. The Doca’s area of bars and restaurants under the big ‘Golden Gate’ looking 25 de Abril Bridge is a great place to spend an evening when you have had enough wandering about and want to tuck into some fish and Mateus Rose. Yes it’s like a throwback to the 70’s but it’s actually quite nice and very cheap. The Bridge has an amazing hum from the traffic and with the little marina and variety of places to eat and drink the Doca’s is an excellent place to spend an evening.

I found the night-time activity in Lisbon far more civilised and seemingly good-natured than the noisy and frenetic Spanish cities where you tend to get English people falling out of all the bars at closing time. Lisbon has an air of being much safer, more cultured, quieter and friendly. A few times we had someone approach us to offer to help if we looked like our map reading skills had failed us. This doesn’t really happen in other European cities and if it does you wonder what the ‘helper’ might be up to. In Lisbon they just wanted to help. There was this one chap, we dubbed him ‘helpful taxi bloke’. He was asking people approaching a taxi rank where they were going. He would then advise the merits of a taxi or walking. He didn’t appear to have any ulterior motive for doing this.

I’ll let you pour over a guide-book on what to see and do in Lisbon. You’ll want to pursue your interests rather than mine. But in summary, it’s a fantastic city, Beautiful and lively, yet safe with really nice locals. Great history of once being of the great powers of Europe and the trappings to show for it. You’ll eat well to suit any budget. Great sights, sounds and smells. Portugal does not deserve to be one of the P.I.G.S. It is a great little country with an incredible history and Lisbon is a gem, go.
