Star rating:
4 star hotel

3.8

An iconic aparthotel in the thick of central Lisbon.

The former Eden cinema is a wonderful Miami-style Art Deco building, housing two- and four-person apartments in the most central part of town. This is a great option for groups of friends and more independent-minded tourists.

Location

On the north-western corner of Rossio Square – Lisbon’s main central square – and at the bottom of Avenida da Liberdade – Lisbon’s main street – this might be the most centrally located hotel in Lisbon.

Bedrooms

In comparison to the brazen Art Deco exterior, the rooms and apartments are decidedly bland but still very functional, simple, clean and inoffensive. I get the impression that these rooms are aimed at people looking for little more than a comfy crash pad. Each apartment has basic cooking facilities, a desk and a small sitting area.

Public areas

The deco lobby and corridors are lit with blinding neon-blue lighting and lined with fake palm trees, which did make me feel like I was Tony Montana or a character in Miami Vice. I liked it, in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way, although many might not.

Eating and drinking

There isn’t a restaurant but that hardly matters given the huge choice on your doorstep. There is a rooftop bar, which always seems to be eerily quiet. It does have some excellent views over central Lisbon, however.

Leisure facilities

There’s a great rooftop pool, which is an oasis above the clouds from the steamy city centre in the summer.

Service

While there isn’t any room-service or anything like that, I found the staff on the front desk to be very helpful and well informed about the city.

Who stays there

Long stay business guests and young friends travelling in groups.

Price advice

If you're travelling in groups the apartments are very affordable.
