Expert review of Hotel Florida

Lisbon’s quirkiest design hotel just off the Avenida.

With a very bold décor theme along the lines of classic cinema, this hotel manages to stay on the side of silver screen-chic as opposed to Planet Hollywood-tacky. Certainly not for everyone, but if you’re after a bit of fun and something different, look no further.

Location: 

Just north of the Botanical Gardens, at the northern end of the central Avenida da Liberdade – nothing is too far away from here.

Bedrooms: 

I found the 72 bedrooms to be a quirky and merry without being too over-the-top. Each is designed along the theme of a Hollywood movie or idol. It felt like being in a very stylish teenager’s bedroom, with film screen-prints and a bit of kitsch decade-centric décor, such as 60s' curtains and buttoned headboards in the Kubrick-styled room. Other fun themes include Marylin Monroe, Marlon Brando and John Travolta. Unfortunately, I did notice that the rooms get a fair bit of street noise, which may annoy some.

Public areas: 

The lobby, reception and corridors have a 60s-chic feel with oversized chessboard-patterned armchairs, stencilled movie quotes and near-life-size prints of Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart on the walls. There’s also the ‘Winter Garden’, an outdoor decking area with yucca plants and comfy sofas.

Eating and drinking: 

There isn’t a restaurant or bar on-site, but the hotel does own a restaurant next door called the Great American Disaster Restaurant. A 1950s' diner, filed with all sorts of tat and memorabilia and serving excellent burgers and shakes – great for kids.

Leisure facilities: 

There’s a small, functional gym.

Service: 

The staff were on-the-ball and very helpful. The receptionist even chased me down the street to give me my phone, which I left on her desk.

We really liked the Hotel Florida when we stayed, and if you get the chance of an upgrade for a few euros then take it. There are some good local restaurants for breakfast just down the road too!
