Located right in the centre of the capital, just a few minutes away from the largest airport in the country.
"Great hotel, great location, very happy."
The hotel rooms are modern and very comfortable, wide range of TV channels. It is a 5 min walk to a nearby Metro station. Really good breakfast and the staff are very friendly and give goods tips as to things to see and do in Lisbon. I would definitely come back to this hotel.
"Upscale environment away from old town"
While next door to the Ritz, the Intercontinental can hold its own in this neighborhood. I found the waitstaff at the restaurant to be excellent with me as a solo diner but found the breakfast staff wanting. The ceiling of the bar is amazing and do not look at it if you have imbibed too much. It is a moving animated abstract of several colors and shapes. I found my room comfortable and had a decent view. I am familiar with this chain of hotels and always find them comfortable.
"Elegant hotel with fine service and great food. What a luxury hotel should be."
This hotel was picked by Windstar Cruises for the end of a cruise and I wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel had beautiful very modern public spaces and our room was large lovely and well appointed. The staff were very helpful and well informed particularly about arranging transport. We dined in their open lobby restaurant the one night we were there and both the food and service were creat.
I only have good words to say about this hotel!! The rooms were awesome, especially if you are looking out towards the water! The Executive Club offers great drinks and food. The customer service here is beyond exceptional! If you are looking for a great hotel in an accessible area, this is the one!! Modern, beautiful and inviting!! A MUST STAY!! Luxury all the way!
"Decent 5 star with 2 major problems to be solved"
Although many rooms still show the Meridien deco, this hotel blends in well with the InterContinental brand. Classic business with first class service. Location is fine, near the Avenida Liberdade. On the hill, making the climb back a bit of an effort. But therefore, some of the best views over Lisbon are on offer from the higher floors of the hotel. If you do not want the climb up, just take a taxi. It will not exceed Euro 5,00 from the Avenida. We were upgraded (Platinum member) to club floor 1710, which offers splendid views over all of Lisbon. Lower level floors do not offer views; a room facing north is only nice if you like watching planes flying into Lisbon airport. Airport is nearby and can best be reached by taxi. Our ride on a Sunday morning took only 20 minutes. The Corte Ingles shopping area is just a short 15 minutes walk away with some very cheap and attractive restaurant in the neighborhood (Bica e Agua!). Avoid walking through Pombal Park. It is smelly. In the evening this is also an area for prostitution. Rooms offer great comfort, even including a full ironing board. Two drawbacks: no separate shower, ridiculous minibar prices (Euro 7 for a Coke; even ordering one from room service is less expensive, but still way above normal Lisbon prices (Euro 1,00 tot Euro 1,20)). The hotel faces two major problems. The first one is the capacity of the breakfast restaurant on Friday and Saturday. Big change you will have to wait several minutes to be seated. Happily we were able to use the quiet club lounge. Second problem is the capacity of the elevators. It took us 13 minutes to get down from floor 17. We would have been waiting even longer if we would not have decided to use the staff elevator (tip!). Some other guests tried the staircases, but were panicing because they could not find the way out anymore. There is no pool. We were informed, but it would make a great asset. Maybe it is not fair to write a review on any hotel after having stayed at perfect InterContinental in Estoril. Concierge is very well informed. Staff members were kind and helpful. One of the staff members made sure we were pampered during our two nights stay by escorting us to our room, inviting us to the club lounge and advising us on typical Portugese restaurants and transport. Thank you so much André Antao for making us feel appreciated and special guests.
