Hotel Olissippo Oriente
Ranked #83 of 255 Hotels in Lisbon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2012

Had the opportunity to stay here recently on business trip to the area. Overall this is a nice hotel. The amenities are very mid-grade, about what you'd expect at a Holiday Inn but comfortable room.
WiFi was good and reliable.
However, it's not really a good working room - the "Desk" area would not be considered ergonomic at all and not a lot of power options to plug in. Lighting was also not great.
That being said, the staff were friendly and helpful and the location in the "Expo" area is good if you're seeing any of the local companies that have set up locations there. Also, great access to the waterfront parks, shops and trains so it's a very nice location - of course it's not the old Lisbon so there are no quaint buildings from the 14th century either.

It is my favourite hotel in Lisbon. Now even better with free WiFi in the rooms.

We stayed at Olissippo Oriente for only one night, as we had an overnight connection in Lisbon. I was really surprised with this hotel: beautiful building, nice modern decoration, big room. The staff was very friendly and ready to assist (for the first time in my life the extra bed I asked upon reservation was ready when we got to the room). Room is comfortable, same for the bathroom and for the beds. Buffet breakfast was also a pleasant surprise. And although we didn't go there for the location, it is very nice - close to the Vasco da Gama shopping mall and to the Oceanarium, and with easy (subway) access to the center of the city, this hotel will definitely be my primary choice whenever I go back to Lisbon.

I booked here as I wanted to be close to the airport without staying at an "airport hotel". Upon doing some research I saw that the Parque das Nacoes was about a 5 minute cab ride from the airport and had a few hotels as well as the large Vasco da Gama shopping center. I used the reviews on tripadvisor to choose between the Tivoli Oriente, Olissippo Oriente and Tryp Oriente and definitely feel I made the best choice.

Arrival was around 8 p.m. and departure around 8 a.m. the following day. Check in and check out was simple (I booked on tingo.com which is a great site that keeps checking for lower rates and automatically rebooks you). I didn't expect much based on the reviews but I just needed a convenient and clean place to stay. It was much better than I expected. The room was clean and modern and had more than enough room to move about. Bathroom was clean with updated fixtures. I usually don't sleep 100% soundly the night before catching a long flight but I slept through the night at this hotel no problem. That deserves a high score in my book.

After check in, I walked about 5 minutes to the Vasco da Gama shopping center to pick up some snacks for the plane in the supermarket there. Very convenient.

Area seems safe and modern. No issues or concerns walking around on a Saturday night. While hotels in the city center are also not far from the airport, this Parque das Nacoes area is closer and as I didn't need to be in the city center I felt it was the better choice for a night before an early flight.

Very good value for the money. Ended up paying $96 for one night including all taxes.

Taxi (with the luggage surcharge) was just under 7 euros to the airport.

Recommended!

This a four star hotel all right! The building is beautifully designed and decorated, everything is impeccably clean and fresh, rooms and beds are very comfortable and large and the hotel has a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The entrance and front desk are friendly and welcome, with most of the times someone opening the door for you. Very luxurious, especially for the amount they charge per night.

The breakfast and lunch buffet did not impress me too much, I would have appreciated a larger selection of fresh fruit and really fresh orange juice, not from a bottle. Also the quality of the buffet foods and drinks were a bit touristic (lots of greasy meat, white bread and sticky cheese), but the à la carte lunch and diner was absolutely outstanding, and very fairly priced. One of the waiters, a young gentlemen, was even so considerate to remember my food preferences for the rest of my stay and went out on a limb to advise and accomodate me.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this area and definitely plan on going back there when making another trip to Lisbon.

Room Tip: The hotel is located right in front of a busy street (entrance side) and the big casino (at the back...

Clean, modern style, free internet, good breakfast. Could have a taxi stand right in front, or at least a couple of them. also, I dont understand the double single beds together. Put a double bed or two doubles. But two singles trying to form a double is weird. TV is really small. Room service is fast. Front desk is helpful and quick.

Room Tip: I guess all are ok

Lisbon offers a large choice of hotels but I opted for the Olissippo Oriente in the end as I was arriving rather late at Lisbon Airport and leaving early in the morning from Oriente station.

The hotel is a 2-minute walk from the train station.

The room had a good size (around 26 sqm) and was very comfortable. The furniture is modern and well the room is well appointed, including a nice bathroom and built-in cupboard.

The room service was not impressive but good for the cheap price paid.
