Address: Avenida Frei Miguel Contreiras 52, Lisbon, Portugal

Star rating:
4 star hotel

3.7

A cheap-as-chips hotel conveniently close to Lisbon Airport.

Despite the rock-bottom prices, the quality of the rooms is surprisingly good. Obviously, don’t expect any frills or an array of facilities. All the focus in this hotel is on the excellent value rooms, which are more than comfortable.

Location

It’s slightly removed from the city centre, but the trade off is you’re very close to the airport. The Roma metro station is five minutes walk, from where it’s another 15 minutes to the city centre.

Bedrooms

The rooms aren’t going to win any awards but for the price they’re pretty good. Everything is clean, smart and comfortable. Most have a pretty big private balcony. The larger suites are really good value and have modern sofas and a few more ‘design’ touches.

Public areas

There’s a bright and shiny lobby, with black leather sofas and the lyrics to 'New York, New York' stencilled on the walls over a painted Manhattan skyline.

Eating and drinking

The restaurant, Infusion, serves Indian and Portuguese food that I’d probably give a miss. However, the breakfast is a decent spread of croissants, fruits and cereals.

Service

The staff were really very helpful and eager to please.

Who stays there

Lots of people come because of the close location to the airport, so you get business guests, families and everyone in between.
