Reviewed 6 June 2014

We stayed in Olissippo Saldanha for 3 nights and it was great. Hotel staffs are friendly and very helpful. Love the modern rooms, very cool motorized window blinds. Room is very quiet, you dont hear your next door neighbor (unlike the other hotels we stayed during our Europe trip).

Location is relatively convenient. Saldanha metro station is right outside of the hotel, which makes it very easy to commute to/from the airport (direct train - red line). Takes about 30 mins to walk to city center/water front, about 15 mins on metro depending on the schedule.

The hotel is not too big so the number of rooms is reduced therefore the place is quiet.
The room we had was quite big compared to the ones in inner city hotels you usually find in Europe. The bed was big and very comfortable. The bathroom was nicely decorated. Everything was very clean.
Another advantage : the metro station is 20m far from the hotel and the metro is direct to the airport.
The breakfast buffet is quite complete (pastries, different breads, sausages, eggs, fruit, cheese,...)
The only disadvantage we found : there is no restaurant in the hotel...

This place is immaculate everywhere. The bed was really comfortable.
Easy to reach the city center.
Breakfast buffet just ok : good selection of fruit but eggs too cooked.
Seating was a problem if too many people.

Olissippo Saldanha is new and modern hotel. Nice rooms. Better than the other hotels in the same area. If you are in Lisbon for a city break I would choose a hotel which is closer to the city centre. There are some restaurants near by but the better ones are in the city centre. I was attending a conference at the technical university and for that the location was very good.

My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous break in beautiful Lisbon. There is so much to see and do, you could easily spend a week there. This hotel was gorgeous, spotlessly clean, modern and friendly with professional staff who looked like they genuinely enjoyed their jobs. We arrived in the early hours and were delighted to be upgraded to a superior room, thank you so much for that...we were always saying that never happens to us!! As has been said, metros and trains are brilliant, cheap, clean and efficient. The Castle, Sintra and Oceanarium are a must!!. We had a fab trip to Estoril by train. Cascais, a nearby resort is so very pretty too. We found great restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel, Cave Real and Horta Dos Brunos deserve a special mention. This hotel was amazing value for money, can't really find any fault worth mentioning!!

The staff are all very helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about local attractions, restaurants, places of entertainment and how to get to them. The rooms are clean and new. Very good and safe location, with the metro Saldanha on the doorstep, a good supermarket and Confeitaria Versailles nearby.

Very well located hotel, just next to a metro station. The hotel is very modern and the rooms are nicely sized. The breakfast buffet was good. The only thing to avoid is the hotel garage, it is a nightmare to take the car out, so we chose to parl the car in a public parking (9.5 Euros per night) located just 200 meters from the hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Would have been nice if the bar opens later than 11pm.
