“Cheap and not 5 stars.”
Reviewed 15 March 2010

I stayed on the Corinthia Lisbon for 4 nights and I can't realty complain, considering the money I payed. But dont get fooled. It is NOT a 5 start hotel.

Positive:
- location: next to the subway and the bus and railway station, nice neightbourhood
- comfortable room
- nice bed (queen size)

Negative:
- The room was small and a bit dated.
- Too hot in the room.
- No hairdryer in the toillet. (It was on the desk and away from the mirror.. Y???)
- Inexperient staff
- The pillow had a hole!
- ALL four glasses in the mini bar had lipstick marks
- Nobody offered to carry my bags when I arrived.
- No information about the spa on the front desk
- Long wait for check out
- At check out the recepcionist didn't say any of those things you expect to listen, like: "I hope you enjoyed yr stay" or "We hope to see you again" or just "THANK YOU". Very rude...

Normally I like to stay in a boutique hotel in the center of a city, but the conference my husband attended was at the Corinthia so this is where we stayed. Although a large hotel, it is immaculately maintained and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The real value is getting an online deal for an Executive Room - these rooms are larger with king-size beds; have better views; include bathrobes and twice daily maid service. Best of all is is the Executive Lounge, which provides free Internet (and computers) and food/munchies/drinks until 10pm. A real treat. Extremely relaxing and pleasant.
The very efficient and easy metro is about a 3-minute walk away, so within 20 minutes you're in the center of town.
We had dinner one night in the Tipico Restaurant of the hotel. The food was excellent!
The only disappointment was that the pool (crystal clear and inviting) was about 2 degrees C too cold for me to do laps.

The service is excellent as well as the rooms, very confortable! If you go to Lisbon book a room at this hotel. The location is perfect, near the center, about 2 or 3 stops with the metro (it is about 3 min away from the hotel) and 10 min from the airport.. It's the cheapest 5-star-hotel, I paid 89 euros and I got a junior suite (it was a special summer offer).

At the corporate rate I could get, this was very good value. Neighbourhood is not very interesting, especially not on a Sunday evening, but there are some restaurants, at least.

Room was large by European standards, but I requested a queen bed and got a room with two singles. This has happened in the past when I made similar bookings through Expedia (low rates = worst room in the hotel). I didn't complain because I figured I wouldn't be spending that much time in the room anyway.
Service was great - excellent staff
Only wired broadband, no wifi
A bit far from the City center, but the 746 bus stops just up the street from the hotel, and this goes to Marques de Pombal Square where there are easy connections (including the Metro).
Fairly close to airport: 10 - 12 Euro taxi fare.
Excellent sound insulation
Overall, I think this is more of a 4-star hotel by Western standards.

When you get a taxi from airport don't pay more then 10 euros,we got ripped of paid 20 euros on arrival. Took time to book in as they did not have our booking,Nice and clean,our room did not have a hand held powershower. Tea from room service cheap enough 2.50E.
Too far from the centre although metro over the road,(Busy road to cross). Pick pockets & beggers rife on metro. I think the hotel should have a shuttle bus from airport and into the centre for the guests.No information in the room regarding where and how to get there around Lisbon.
If you are a tourist going to lisbon read my report on forum Be Aware Robbers Paradise

Huge five star hotel with excellent facilities and staff. Booked through ebay for £150 for three nights. Great spa and brand new gym, which was empty most days. Breakfast had a jhuge selection and was busy one morning. Swimming pool was 24° but felt cooler, spa staff were friendly and polite. Close to transport links, only negative would be the car parking cost at €18 p/night, but it is a capital city. Close to airport but sufficient sound proofing. Fast internet at €3p/hr I would return at £50 p/room rate !
