“Nice hotel for the price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2011

The hotel is quite close to the airport, about a 6€ to 8€ taxi ride, so not bad. On arrival the reception is quite large, but if there are more than 2 people checking in it may take some time. The hotel is a quite moden design, if not just a year or two out of date, but is nice. The food in the hotel is good and does not cost the earth.
Basicaly a good stay for not a silly money.

Nothing very special and looking a little bit tired.
Don't expect a real four star hotel,but
No doubt is in terms of location and price one of the cheap best options in Lisbon.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

It seems that there are 5* hotels that prefer to be listed as 4* in order not to loose business customers. That was valid for my previous trip to Lisbon and Mariott hotel. VIP Arts is average even for a 3* hotel and I feel that the actual 4* rating is misleading in order to attract customers hoping for high standard services. Pros: big rooms, high ceiling, full size bath-tub, good airconditioning, mini-bar, safe and good breakfast with fresh fruits and a few hot-dishes but not made on the spot according to your wish. Cons: NO WiFi in the room which is unacceptable for business hotel. Only cable which is "borrowed" with deposit. Same goes for an ironing board and iron. Expensive internet 10EUR for 6 hours. My 3rd floor room was looking on the side of the building and was OK. My colleagues were located on 2nd floor with window overlooking a wall and 12 floor on the noisy train station side.The most important factor for me is sleep comfort. And that is a huge failure due to hard matress. Of course that's personal taste, but I could not sleep well and woke up with muscle pains due to the very hard matress and lack of soft-pillows. Reception constantly busy with long queues and smiling being a luxury non-affordable for personnel. Hotel is 10 mins walk to train station to reach city center, close to Vasco da Gama shopping center, Oceanario and Casino. The value of approx 70 EUR at corporate rate including breakfast is reasonable, but even for that price range I cannot recommend it due to uncomfortable sleep.

Room Tip: Select a room on the front side of the hotel. Rear side is facing the track rails and is very noisy.

Stayed at the VIP Arts in October 2011 on a business visit. The hotel is a 5 to 10minute walk from the train station, vasco da gama shopping mall, riverfront and aquarium.
The hotel rooms were very clean but my room was a little tired, with some scuff marks on the walls and floors. The whole hotel actually looks a little bit tired and in reception area could do with a bit of renovation.

My room was overlooking the back of hotel where there is a railway track. At night I never heard trains but around 5am or 6am usually you hear a couple of trains passing.

Buffet breakfast was good with good choice of ham/cheese, bacon, eggs and pastries.

Note that the hotel is in the Expo '98 area and not in the city centre. Getting to the city centre is easy by underground but it could take around 45mins to get to the centre if underground is busy since you also have to change line.

A taxi ride to the centre is approximately some €15 depending on traffic and route chosen by driver.

Room Tip: choose a room on front of the hotel to avoid train noise
