Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice hotel, quite basic, very clean with a modern feel . A 40 minute ish walk to town centre which is reflected in the price. We arrived on a Friday to find the hotel bar was closed apparently bar man hadn’t came in , benefit of doubt for one night but nothing had been done to rectify this on Saturday and Sunday as well !!

I stayed in the hotel for an academic conference in the nearby Institute. The location is good, close to the underground station, with supermarkets nearby. The room is clean and well designed. The staff are very welcoming and speak good English. The breakfast is also quite good.

The hotel is located in a nice area close to shops and restaurants. The staff are very helpful and hospitable. The room is very comfortable and quiet. You do have to take a taxi to the city center, but it’s not too far. It is also not too far from the airport.

Rated 4 star hotel BUT:
No electric sockets near the beds
Tiny bathroom with no place to put the toilet bags
No shelves in the closet, only hangers
No options for lunch and dinner, only breakfast, very good breakfast though
An ottoman in the room with no reading light nearby
The corridor near the entrance to the room, is dark, can’t see nothing

It is far from the city's center, in a iresidential area with no tourist attractions.
Few restaurants within walking distance, most of them not pleasant, except POMODORO, which was beautiful and provided excellent Italian food.

Good things
The staff was friendly and helpful
Room is spacy
Good breakfast

Don't expect Air-conditioned rooms,. We were sweating at night but staff could not care less.
If you open the window there are parties on the street which will not let you sleep till past mid night.
The TV in room is pocket size, it does not get smaller than this.
It's not worth it.
Rooms are not well maintained either.

Good location but somewhat dated. Floor was a bit damaged, stool with broken upholstery, small tvset.
Breakfast was ok. Go for the higher floors due to traffic noise on lower etages. Staff had us relocated to 6th which was much appreciated.

Booked through hotels.com for 7 nights in late October: $77/night Mon-Sat; $109 Sundays - included breakfast buffet. Unbelievable value - about half of what I would have paid for a hotel in the Old City. I believe I stayed during the first week of off-season, when prices all over Lisbon dropped.

In terms of location, the hotel is about 5 Metro stops away from the action in the Old City. Lisbon is a small city; I could get anywhere by Metro in 10-15 minutes. If you are the type who has to return to your hotel room throughout the day, this might not be the place for you. However, if you are the type who travels with a backpack, you cannot beat the value here.

Getting there from Airport: The airport cabbies all try to cheat you. So take an AeroBus to downtown instead - they are quick and cheap. Cost is 3.50 Euros, cash only (be sure to ask for your change!). Watch the electronic display for the Saldanha stop (I think it's the 5th stop). Most tourists stay closer to downtown; so the trip is short, <10 minutes. Stay close to the door on the bus.

When you get off at Saldanha, you will be in this big circle. Saldanha is a hub with multiple spokes running to it. You just rode in from the north - the hotel is a few blocks northeast of Praça de Saldanha. There are no signs leading to the hotel. The locals have never heard of it. If you ask for directions, ask for the Pingo Doce supermarket on Avenida Rovisco Pais (same street). Better yet, while in the circle, look for the familiar McDonald's arch. The corner nearest to that McD sign is the street you want (Rua Duque du Avila, which becomes Avenida Rovisco Pais). Walk down for about 5-7 minutes. On your left you should see a big university (Instituto Superior Tecnico), and you should pass the Pingo Doce on your right.

Check-in was effortless. Front Desk is staffed 24/7 by multilingual staff (all speak Portuguese, English, and a few other languages); Nuno and Susana are both especially good. No troubles with any wake-up calls or taxis. Entire hotel is smoke-free. Two tiny but fast elevators. Your room passcard triggers the electricity for your whole room; so you cannot forget your card (and you can't run the A/C while you are out either).

I had a room on the 5th floor with no balcony. I heard the concierge explain to another guest that the balcony rooms are more popular and do sell out first, but they are considerably smaller. This is not a touristy area - so there are no great views anyway. About 7 rooms per floor. Quiet, the only thing I heard was people opening and closing their front doors (deadbolt). The typical guests are retired European tourists (not tour groups); so this is not a rowdy hotel.

My room was extremely clean and simple, but impeccable: a double bed, 2 night tables, a small ottoman, a TV mounted on the wall, long glass shelf (in lieu of a table), a mini-bar, a closet with 5 hangers and 1 drawer and a room safe, a kettle (with some tea bags/sugar), 2 cups/saucers, 2 cocktail glasses. I asked the front desk to empty the mini bar, which is large enough to store 3-5 x 1L bottles or cartons. Also no clock or radio; use CNN on TV. The room is not designed for dining-in or reading.

Didn't need A/C or heat in late October (temp was around 20°C), but I checked that they worked well and quietly. You can open the window as well (no screens).

The mattress is ok, although I prefer extra firm. There are 2 extra pillows and a comforter in the closet. Nice crisp cotton sheets.

TV has a few English channels: France 24, BBC News, and CNN Europe. There is also EuroSport channel, which sometimes broadcasts in English (but mostly in German). Volume on TV is capped at 35% of maximum.

The bathroom was large, modern, and spotless: marble floors, big tub, strong water pressure in shower, lots of hot water, bidet, telephone. Some toiletries provided (soap, shampoo, lotion - which they will replenish) - more available at front desk. Hair dryer and vanity mirror. Lots of fluffy, clean towels.

My one issue was that the battery on my room safe was dead when I arrived. It took 2 days to get the technician to replace it. In the meantime, I kept my valuables in the hotel safe at the front desk. This was no trouble, but be sure to know the contents of what you are storing in the hotel safe, as items are not compartmentalized.

Buffet breakfast runs from 7:00-9:30am daily. Staff is very friendly. They will check for your room passcard or client card daily. The menu does not seem to change much, but was always fresh and replenished quickly: 2 types of scrambled eggs (one with meat, one without); bacon; "sausages" (boiled hot dogs); sliced cold cuts (salami, ham, chorizo); sliced cheese; breads (Portuguese rolls, sliced bread, croissants) that you toast yourself; cold cereal and milk; mini-danishes; cold waffles (the kind you can get from a supermarket); sliced cakes; whole baked apples w/ cinnamon and sugar; individual yogourts; butter; jams. As for fresh fruit, there were apples, oranges, kiwis (halved). North Americans might miss the following buffet staples: hash browns, pancakes, tomatoes, oatmeal, strawberries, pineapple, melon, bananas.

At the buffet there is a machine dispensing coffee, hot milk, orange juice, and hot water - I've read many complaints about this, but it's a buffet; so what do you expect? You will probably a have a few bicas or caffe com leites through the day anyway. I brought some tea bags from home and used the hot water. I also kept a bottle of freshly squeezed juice in my mini-bar.

I thought the breakfast buffet was a good start to the day, and more than enough to get you by until your next visit to a cafe. It added to the superior value of this hotel. If not included in your room rate, skip it (it's 15 Euros!), and have breakfast at a cafe or pastelaria, or even the nearby McDonald's. Definitely worth booking this into your hotel reservation if <7 Euro surcharge.

The hotel has a happy hour from 18h-20h every night. Bar rates are half-price on everything except wine. I didn't try it, but half-off on port looked good.

Commuting to Old City: Alameda Metro is closer to the hotel and on the green line (Linha Verde). You can get to the Old City without transferring. The walk from Alameda Metro to the hotel is steep: not bad if you have a backpack, but a definite no if you have luggage, even on rollers. This path leads to the university and is well-travelled until about 23h00 and always well-lighted. If returning to the hotel alone late at night, I would say the Alameda Metro is a safer option than Saldanha Metro (on the red line, Linha Vermelha). (The neighbourhood is very safe, but the Saldanha Metro has much less traffic.) If returning to the hotel at a decent hour, take Saldanha Metro to avoid the steep climb from Alameda.

Around the hotel: The university is the lifeblood of this neighbourhood and makes it quite lively and safe. It also encourages local restaurants to offer cheap lunch specials. Caffe Imperio, next to Alameda Metro, offers a great 5.50 Euro special - 1 main dish, 1 trip to the buffet (salads, sides, some hot dishes, a full pasta bar), 1 trip to the bar (beer, wine, soft drink, juice, or water), and 1 dessert - you pay up front, and the hostess will give you tickets for each part of your meal, no tips. This is a great budget option if you are making an intraday stop at the hotel, if you don't mind being surrounded by college students.

You can get almost everything you need at the Pingo Doce supermarket a few streets west of the hotel: fresh fruit, milk, juices, water, toiletries, groceries, detergent, decent hot counter, bakery. It has normal prices, not bumped up like some of the downtown locations. Use Pingo Doce to stock your mini-bar wisely!

For better pastries in the area, go to Pastelaria Sequiera at Saldanha Circle. They sell a delicious Bolo Rei (a Portuguese Christmas cake) that makes an excellent souvenir - it travels well. Very friendly staff, but they only speak Portuguese. Friendly locals will translate for you, though!

All in all, this is an excellent value hotel. I would recommend it to anyone and would stay there again in a minute.

If you want to stay somewhere where staff hide in back offices, where bar service takes ages and ages and ages, and where the bar staff take orders but then serve their local friends first, then this is a wonderful hotel. If you have any concept of customer service at a bar, avoid this hotel

Where to start...

So the hotel is only a 15-20 minute Metro journey from the Airport all the way on one line. The hotel is a mere 3-5 minute walk from two different stations on that line. (If you have large suitcases I would suggest using Saldanha station as Alameda leaves you faced with quite a steep hill to walk up!)

The immediate area around the hotel is bursting with choice for food and drink and all of this is within a five minute walk, surrounding Saldanha Metro station. We tried several restaurants and patisseries during our stay and we weren't disappointed. The majority of these were all very well priced for the portions received.

Be sure to include the breakfast buffet in your stay as you would be foolish not to. They provide everything you could possibly need to start your day. Hot and cold foods as well as cereal and plenty of cakes and pastries.

We booked two double rooms both of which were very clean and a perfect size. If you are like us and you only use the hotel to sleep and shower and have breakfast then this is exactly where you should stay.

The staff were all very helpful, especially Carlos the barman. 6pm-8pm is happy hour at the hotel bar and the cocktails were incredible. Carlos was honest about how good each drink was when you were making a choice and he even tasted the drinks before serving to ensure they were of the best quality. But Carlos went above and beyond the call of duty, recommending restaurants for every night of our stay and not once did he give us a poor choice. He is a credit to the hotel.

Being so close to the metro means you are never far away from the main sights of Lisbon. The longest we travelled to get where we wanted to go was ten minutes. A few reveiwers have said it isn't good for location but short of everything being right outside the hotels front door I don't see how this could be better. Alameda is served by both the Red (Airport to Sao Sebastio) and the Green (which takes you to Rossio in ten minutes (the heart of Alfama) and Cais de Sodre in 15minutes - where you can get a train to Belem (another 8 mins) and even further if you wish (Cascai - within the hour).

Overall this hotel is perfect for everything and we will definitely return when we come back to Lisbon.

Check how to prevent bug beds when you travel. If one room have bed bags the rest bedrooms near the affect room will have. Ask always minimum 2 floors up.
Put your luggage on the bathroom, they hate it.

Cannot really answer this one with any degree of certainty, we only saw inside one room, ours, a standard double. The room was not large and had a normal double bed, no room for a second bed. As to the view we overlooked the city, not a beautiful view and most of our window was covered with a translucent film. The only way to look out was by opening the window. Noise was very low as we were on a high floor not overlooking the acess road.

Hello Bernadett, Thank you for your inquiry. And thank you Adriana for already answering to the questions! 1. The most direct and less time consuming way is the Taxi. It's about a 5/7 minutes ride. It should be about 10/15 eur. You also have the subway, that is far less expensive, but more time consuming. 2. The best and fastest way is to take the Red Line in the subway (Linha Vermelha). 3. As for the Gare do Oriente station, the best way is to take the nearby Subway. Regards.
