Reviewed 1 June 2013

When the taxidriver dropped me of I had to check where I could find the entrance. It is just a small door, but when I was in everything went very smootly. The receiption worked very fast and efficient and in no time I was in my room. The room was small but of good quality. Everything was working and clean. From the hotel it was just about 15 minutes walk to the old center of Lisbon over a very nice boulevard.

Room Tip: Sorry but I can not give any advise.

we have very much enjoyed this hotel.
It is close to the metro station and bus stop, at only 5 min walking.

Rooms are perfect: clean, modern and spacious. the bathroom is really a big plus: modern, luxurious.

Breakfast was perfect: big variety, fresh fruit, yoghurt, nice bread... But if they would have offered fresh fruit juice, I would score it the perfect 10/10!

Staf is friendly and helpful. They store your luggage in safe keeping, when you have checked out or are early to check in.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel

This hotel is very close to the Metro and has a good central location ideal for city exploration. Check in/out was very efficient with friendly, helpful and good English speaking staff. All areas of the hotel we visited were very clean. We did not like the dull lighting in the corridors and elevators. Our room number 315 was dull although there were numerous lights (would suggest some more powerful lighting). The window blind was excellent blocking out all natural light completely. The bathroom lighting was also poor. Toilet roll not replenished. Good shower facility. The fridge in the room was a bonus for keeping our wine and water cold. Bed and pillows very comfortable. The breakfast area was cramped, squashed and narrow. On the first of our two mornings we had to share our table with strangers who had to keep disturbing us to get out for their food...not ideal or comfortable for them or us! Breakfast was simple but adequate.

I agree with all previous posts here about this hotel. Nice, modern, clean (it smells great) and well located. Bed is really comfortable and allows a wonderful sleep.
But staff is unfriendly even being addressed in portuguese. Not helpful with tech problems (little fridge is more like a microwave, also warm, and they don't want to see it). WIFI system is too ancient and not adapted to the easier smartphone-friendly techs.
Breakfast is a bit too simple, a very limited amount of choices. Breakfast area is very narrow and uncomfortable and not worth the extra prices, since for that value you get an amazing breakfast anywhere else on the street.

We chose this hotel for its central location and attractive price and were not disappointed. Plusses : only 100 meters from the Pombal Metro station, giving easy and quick access to downtown stations and the airport (change trains once). Medium size room, clean, with good box spring bed and efficient bathroom (walk-in shower). Continental buffet breakfast (rolls, scrambled eggs, some fruit etc.) is nothing special but plentiful a provides a good start of the day. Whole package is good value for money. Minuses: typical business hotel, only one chair in the room, no safety box. We had a room in the back, which cut off street noise, but the rooms/bathrooms themselves (rather: the neighbours) are not. Breakfast room is quite small with large crowds around 09.00. Parking in street outside is not possible which leaves you paying for garages in the area. Tip: most major car rental agencies have offices in or close to Pombal, so hand in your car like we did and use public transportation, making your stay a whole lot cheaper (24 hour Metro card is 7 euro).

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

The Evidencia Astoria Creative Hotel was fantastically well placed, central to everything Lisbon has to offer; a twenty minute bus ride from the Airport (15 minute taxi) and a 15 minute walk from the coast.

The rooms are very nice, comfortable and spacious, with excellent bathroom facilities, a very powerful shower and a full mini bar service for those who need it!

The onsite bar and restaurant looked really nice, although i sadly didn't have time to eat there. However, all staff we dealt with were very helpful, friendly and represented the hotel very well.

Over all: very good experience, and good value for money (considering this hotel was almost half the price of others with same ratings)

the good:
- clean & modern design of the hotel and the rooms.
- nice staff

could be better:
- wifi internet is annoying (you need to login to a temp username everytime, and only 1 person can be loged in at a time)
- location is OK (15 min walk from main area, but you'll probably take the metro or taxi)
- breakfast is OK, not amazing.
