If spending significant time at the congress centre, this is ideal, as it's a 5 minute walk away. The staff are unfailingly polite and pleasant and wifi is good. It's a shame that there are no tea/coffee making facilities and 2 small bottles of water in the minibar seems a bit stingy. Possibly the brownest hotel I've ever stayed in,...

The Hotel is new, good rooms, but if your rooms are facing the bridge, the noise is too high as, in the bridge yo have, roll trafic, trains and is located in the final approach of the airport runway, therefore you have also the planes flying nearby, so choose the room facing the front part of the hotel nor the...

The rooms are adequate. They are a little noisy being so close to the bridge. I can't complain about cost of room and we only needed a room for 15hours as we were flying to Spain. We booked a junior suite and they gave us a single room to start. I could not have stayed in a single room 2...

Vila Gale Opera is located just 30/40 meters from the Tagus River, but to go there you need to cross two main avenues (parallel) + 1 train line. To go there you need a taxi or a tuk-tuk. Due to this and only this, location, this hotel is somehow a disappointment. everything else is very good from facilities to food...

It was time to start traveling internationally again (7 months since the last time) and the first stay for the two week sojourn was at the Vila Gale Opera in Lisboa. It was my first time at Vila and to this untrained eye it looks like its geared towards the Portuguese market or former colonies of Portugal. Writing this review...

Certainly this hotel is in a convenient position if you want to see the port area of Lisboa and the old town. It's close to Belem but unfortunately even closer to the April 25th Bridge. Infact, it's virtually underneath it. That means you get traffic and train noise almost constantly from above and below. Not sure why the designers didn't...

The hotel is beside thePonte 25 de Abril bridge and the noise from the traffic and trains on the bridge is interminable. I barely slept at all there. Also the water pressure in the shower was very poor (at least on the 7th floor where my room was). There is no iron or ironing board in the room, or available...

I stayed at this hotel while attending a conference. The hotel is a two minute walk from the conference center, which was extremely convenient. The hotel is indeed directly beneath a noisy bridge, but the windows in the room were excellent for blocking the noise. The bed was quite comfortable. My booking included the buffet breakfast, which was well stocked...

Very good location if you're staying with friends, it's next to the docs and the LX factory which are great for dining and partying. Nice rooms, didn't miss anything, good breakfast, we were 4 girlfriends so they provided interconnected rooms, the only thing is the lighting in the rooms and bathroom is poor (bad for makeup). Recommended.

This hotel is a great one for the accommodations : nice pool, nice restaurant, fitness room, bar... But I'm not sure the rooms deserved the 4**** status. The room is well-sized but doesn't look new, the double bed is turned into a 2 single beds, and the bathroom is not cleaned as it should !
