Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Eduardo VII Lisbon
Disappointing and Unfriendly
After spending almost 2 weeks in Spain and in the Algarve, this was our last stop and unfortunately the least satisfactory hotel experience. The rooms were relatively clean although the decor was fairly outdated and it was congested and dark. The most disappointing part of this stay was the staff, as they were unfriendly and almost seemed bothered by our questions. If you are planning on staying for more than a couple of nights, I would recommend looking for another hotel since this one may not provide the best Lisbon experience.
Room absolutely stank of stale smoke and had to have windows open for as long as possible despite the horrendous noise of probably Lisbons busiest road junction. Very ordinary breakfast with some strange watery version of fruit juice and toaster not working. The much vaunted 'view' from tenth floor restuarant now virtually completely blocked by other building development. Reception run by 'club' of old grumpy men not particularly interested in helping out with advice etc. With all the hundreds of hotels to choose from in Lisbon, 'why bother! '
All of the previous reviews are accurate!
My wife and I stayed here in July on a combined business and pleasure trip. We chose it, despite the 'tripadvisor' reviews, because the Euro Football Championships were being held at the time and it was extremely difficult to get a room anywhere in Lisbon. Apart from the staff, the hotel really is pretty dire and urgently needs a lot of money spent on it if it is to stay in the Best Western chain. But its suprising how quickly you can actually get used to a strange smell!
It is not all that well located either, so you need to catch the metro or walk quite a distance before you get to the main action.
Only select this hotel if you cannot book or afford somewhere else.
Alright for a night
I stayed at this hotel whilst attending a conference and then stayed on for a vacation. This hotel is good value but is very basic, and whilst most of the essential requirements are in place it remains very tired and very grubby. The rooms are small, and the air conditioning hardly registers, but you cannot open the windows because the noise from the passing traffic is horrendous. Annoyingly there are no tea or coffee making facilties in the room. The breakfast is passable although actually good value for money. This hotel would suit the individual, passing traveller on business but if you wish to have a luxury vacation in Lisbon, my advise would be to splash out and stay somewhere else.
Smelly and noisy.
My overriding impression of the hotel is that it was very smelly. The whole place needed a good airing - it was a damp and musty. When we arrived in our room it was fine: clean, nice bathroom. However, it really smelt so we had to open the windows. It was then that the noise of the busy road outside hit us - it was SO loud! We had a triple room, which was a bit small and crowded for the 3 of us and our bags. The location was ok, but it was quite a walk to get to the main part of town. The breakfast was below average, but was included so we made the most of it. Overall I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone - it served it's purpose, but was just a bit dim and dismal really.
Average hotel in the heart of Lisbon. Close to two metro stations. The room was clean but in dire need of refurbishing. Although we were on the 8th floor we could still hear traffic at night. Also a problem with the plumbing - it was very loud whenever anyone used the commode. The pipes would rattle. Hotel Staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was not that great. Watered down juices, etc., however, the view was fantastic.
I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights and I was not very pleased. Not that the hotel was very bad but the word average is the best way to descride it. What I have to comment mainly is that the hotel needs a complete and severe refurbishment since it is considerably old. Generally, if I visit Lisbon again I would certainly search for another hotel and definetely not stay there. Also I would be more carefull before considering any enthusiastic reviews such as was posted in Tripadvisor.
We chose this hotel because the reviews here seemed so good, coupled with the fact that it's location seemed ideal. However .... we didn't find it friendly at all and had to refuse 'three' rooms until we were happy with our final room. But only just barely. It really is quite noisy being at a junction. And the great view from the bar? .... obscured by a new hotel being built across the road. It's in need of a good paint job inside. Oh and if you want to check your eMail - forget it. A 33k modem. On the plus side ... The park next door is nice with an 'amazing' view and the cafe and restaurant next door are very handy. In all loose the weariness (doormen excluded as they were full of smiles) and get a new coat of paint. Modernise all the rooms and the breakfasts need to improve - the bread was stale. Needs a bit of a kick into an enthusiastic gear.
Best Western - Hotel Eduardo in Lisbon
We stayed 3 nights in Lisbon at the Best Western- Hotel Eduardo. Next door to EL Corte Ingles mega shopping center and historic Eduardo Park. The Hotel is in a landmark building. Was a clean, quiet hotel room, with A/C and heater controls IN room. Free cable movies and complimentary buffet breakfast at their hotel resturant which has scenic 360 views of Lisbon on the top floor of the hotel. Was Lovely. 87 Euro's in late October.
Great Service/ great restaurant
October 28, 2003; The rooms are modest in size; the restaurant food is outstanding; and there is a "business center" with internet,fax,printer, etc. all for 4 euros an hour. The complimentary breakfast is very good, bacon, eggs, sausage, etc. All of the employees were fluent in English, very helpfull at questions, and very friendly; we stayed there twice in a ten day trip.

What a great day we had today. First we met our niece Andie for breakfast. She was on her best behavior and refrained from calling me a "retard" (her usual sobriquet for me) even once! We haven't seen Andie for just about two years while she does her OE in the UK, and while I'd like to say she flew to Lisbon especially to catch up with Aunty Sue and Uncle David it was really a coincidence. She was actually here for a very ...
... banner!! Everyone in the tour group managed to get photos. I offered to sign autographs for a small fee but so far no one has taken me up on the offer. I'll fill you in on a few of the tour members... There's Mary Lou and Judy from Green Bay, Wisconsin. They are both travel agents, although Mary Lou used to be a first grade teacher. They are in their fifties/sixties and are both absolutely lovely and have offered their homes to us if ever we go to the US. ...
... you stood upon that separated you from the distant past.
After we toured for a good 4 hours it was dark and we started to walk down the narrow cobblestone streets. We walk by a few wine bars that you miss if you blinked. I say this literally more than figuratively because no restaurant or store in Lisbon has a big "store front" they we we do in the us. The door of the restaurant might look like the back door to someones ...
... city. I think it is cool.
Tomorrow I meet my group at 9 and we head out to Sintra. I have to re-organize some of my **** tonight - I am still in a WTF mode a bit. Also I will see if I can post some pics from my phone. I didn't get my camera out yet as I was new to the city and didn't want to look TOO much like a tourist until I got a better feel for the place.
Oh yes - FYI- I had carefully researched that US ...
... they were telling us about Lisboa which was nice. They also said that we should make a trip to Porto because the 2 cities are very different, but they’re both extremely beautiful. (we’ll see). I mean Porto is kind of the wine capital of Portugal. After lunch we decided to wait in the line for Pastéis de Nata (a custard pastry that is the best invention ever in desserts) at the Pastéis de Belem Bakery. Basically, this bakery ...
