“Noisy and past its best”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

We had stayed at this property previously but were disappointed this time.
The bedrooms have been refurb'ed to Holiday Inn standard but unable to sleep due to noise. The property is old stock and whilst there was some traffic noise from outside the interior soundproofing was appalling, a conversation in the neighbouring room kept us awake on the first night. When this started up again on the second night we knew the conversation, which was not particularly loud, would go past midnight, we asked for a room swap. We ended up next to banging doors and bursts of argument. If you need to have a meeting in one of the bedrooms I would suggest nothing of personal or commercial sensitivity is discussed as your neighbours will hear every word of it.
The fitness centre advertised on the website is a "mini-gym" with four pieces of equipment (two bikes,a rower and treadmill) which can get busy and no weights at all.
The rooftop pool opens only from May to September.

Stayed here in January for business and happy to return.

Am a gold level priority member they let me check in early, gave me free Internet and a free drink voucher.

Room was spacious, bed comfortable and shower great until the morning when the water wasn't very warm.

Small one off problem I hope overshadowed by nice service and good lunch.

Can't wait for small rooftop pool to be open from May!

Have stayed at Holiday Inn a few times and never been dissapointed. Room was most comfortable and breakfast was very good. Yes, it is not in the centre of Lisbon but this is nice area.

I visited Lisboa in December and Holiday Inn was expected to be a descent choise. Indeed it was. But please, 4*?!
We were given a smokers room, even though we did not want one, having the curtains and the walls smelling like smoke! The beds and pillows were comfortable, the view was OK and the bathroom was good and clean, as well. The location was not bad, 5 mins walk (downhill) to the metro station, which you are expected to use to go to the center. When coming back, going up the hill is not the greatest pleasure, though!
We did not have any breakfast at the hotel so no comments on that but I would like to stress that the hotel staff was not that helpful and also rather nosy! They made it clear that they are talking about us behind our back with a comment "Ooooh, are you the Greeks?" and when you said "Yes, why?" they said "Nothing, it's ok''!!!!
Also, huge tip, the internet is ridiculously expensive so if you will be needing internet access on your vacation, you'd better pick another place.

Room Tip: Ask for a non smpokers' room in order to avoid it!
