Just back from Lisbon where we stayed at the Corinthia. We had booked a few months ago and the room rates are very reasonable for such a high standard hotel. On arriving we were taken to our room on the ninth floor. The room was spotless, had a well stocked minibar, flat screen TV and free wifi. After settling in we had a few drinks from the bar, a little bit pricey. A Hendricks Gin and tonic was €12.60! Dinner in Tipico was very good, again pricey but probably worth it.
A great sleep was ruined at 5.30am on Sunday morning when a group of French girls arrived back from the nightclubs and decided to create havoc on floor 9. Credit goes to the Duty manager who eventually calmed things down after about 45 minutes and after me complaining to him twice.
Next morning as an offer of compensation, Mr Vieira, the HR Director and in charge of Security offered us VIP treatment which included access to the Executive suite on floor 24. That certainly made up for the events of the previous evening and it was apparent that this kind of disruptive event is extremely rare in this hotel. I think the staff were genuinely angry and embarrassed at the events on Sunday morning.
Breakfast is excellent. Something for everyone. Don't plan on lunch as breakfast will keep you full till dinner time. If you pre-book then it's €16, if you turn up on the morning it's €18.
The location is great, only a ten minute, €10 taxi ride from terminal 1 and you can jump on the hop on hop off bus into Lisbon, right outside the hotel. Unlimited use for 24 hours for only €18.
Finally, the spa is excellent. For €20 you get the use of the jacuzzi, Turkish bath, sauna etc...
I would strongly recommend this hotel based on the quality of rooms, service and the very friendly welcome from attentive staff.
