We waited for over 2 hours for our room to be ready because check in time wasn't clearly stated on our booking, so I didn't like that we had to waste most of our day for that. Once we actually got our rooms, there were no towels in the bathrooms and no pillow cases on the pillows. The beds were made but didn't even look like the room had been cleaned. The lady at the front desk was very rude when we complained about this and just kept making excuses as to why our rooms didn't have fresh linens. One of the excuses wa because they were behind on laundry. Just appalled. After paying quite a price to stay in this type of low grade hotel room with hard beds And terrible service, I will never be returning! Don't waste your money or time!

Stayed: August 2014, travelled with family

Sheraton Lisboa happens to be my regular choice when it comes to visiting beautiful Lisboa - but I decided to try out the VIP Executive on a friend's recommendation, and was pleasantly surprised. Ended up spending 5 nights at this hotel - it's extremely clean, the location is pure gold (Oriente Metro Station is just round the corner along with the Vasco da Gama Shopping Centre), and my room on the 8th floor overlooked the Vasco de Gama bridge and the serene Tejo river. In addition, the price per night is a fraction of what other hotels would charge.

The Expo neighbourhood makes for blissful walking; especially at sun-set when you have the riverside restaurants open their doors (I recommend Irish & Co, for extremely friendly staff and a good crowd).

Some tips:
- If you have minimal luggage, take the metro from the airport and exit at Oriente station. The hotel is around 350metres round the corner.
- I would rate the Vasco de Gama Mall as the second best mall in Lisboa (Colombo Mall taking the first spot).
- Get the 24hrs day pass (around € 6.40) and you have unlimited use of the metro, bus and tram network (helpful when you are in the Alfama and Baixa areas).
- If visiting Sintra, take the train at Oriente (it's a 45mins ride).

Room Tip: Make sure you request for a room facing the Tejo river and on a higher floor (preferably floor 8 and above).

We had an early morning flight out of Lisbon and needed a hotel for one night and the VIP Executive Arts Hotel met our needs. The rooms were clean and spacious and we were close to restaurants and shopping at Vasco da Gama Shopping. Best of all it was only 5 minutes from the airport. We would definitely stay here again.

Having 4 nights in Lisbon we appreciated value for money in one hotel (used an online booking search engine to find best price) over central tourist area hotels. The Park of Nations riverside area is a modern development with interesting architecture, dating from Expo. 1998. We requested a riverview room, non-smoking, breakfast included etc. and received exactly that, on the 12th floor! Great view of the Vasco Da Gama bridge & Tower, funicular, exhibition centre (roof of white waves) etc. Mostly Portugeuse guests at the hotel (mix of business, holiday, probably very convenient for those with car-parking requirements) so check their reviews for the complete picture. Without a car, the walking-legs must be fit for metro trips etc., we found the Lisboa Card (LC) www.visitlisboa.com ultra convenient for first visit to Lisbon (Metro, Tram, Bus, entry to museums etc). Oriente Metro station is the one to use, the open 'til 12 midnight shopping centre across the street is useful for last minute shopping or a bite to eat after a long-days sight-seeing around Lisbon.

Room Tip: River view, 10th floor and upwards!

The location, price and the stunning view. That´s about it..
I stayed in this hotel twice for a short one night sleep and I think will do no more. The mattress was too hard and pillows make one remember hospital.

Room Tip: Ask for room with the rever view.
