Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dom Carlos Park Lisbon
Great Value, Location and Service
My husband and I enjoyed our four nights at the Dom Carlos Park Hotel during the Christmas period in 2004 and also our one-night stay in January 2005. Staff updated us to a junior suite in December because of low occupancy during the holidays. They also surprised us with a bottle of Port and two cakes on Christmas Eve. Our immaculate room on a floor reserved for nonsmokers overlooked the street, but there was virtually no noise. The buffet breakfast was good.
The hotel has an ideal location next to a Metro stop; and it took us just 20 minutes to walk to two nearby major museums and about the same time to amble down to the Rossio. A car rental agency is a 10-minute walk away. Staff provided excellent service. For example, they made calls to find a nearby restaurant open on Christmas Eve, checked on bus schedules between Portugal and Spain and ensured that I found an English-speaking physician when I became ill. A Canadian at the desk provided exceptional assistance during this health crisis. The nightly rate is below that charged by other hotels that we looked at in the neighborhood, making it a good value for the money. We highly recommend the Dom Carlos Park Hotel.
Nice place to stay
My wife and I, our daughter and her husband, and our younger son each had rooms at the Dom Carlos Park on 13 November 2004 following a cruise on Oceania's Insignia. We were very pleased with the hotel even though it is somewhat modest, and were particularly pleased with the staff. Everyone there was friendly, helpful, and courteous. The location is quite good. Very close (walking distance) from many places of interest, and also a short walk from bus and metro stations. The included breakfast was good and well presented. I'd not hesistate at all to stay there again, nor to recommend it to my friends.
Good value - nice property
We booked two rooms in early May at the Dom Carlos. It's a pleasant little hotel in a reasonably good location. Metro service is nearby and restaurants are available in the neighborhood. The in-hotel breakfast service was well done with a good variety of fresh fruits, breads, and meats. Rooms are moderately large and ours was quiet, though the church bells make any daytime sleep challenging. Staff was friendly and knowledgable about the city. We paid E-122 per night which seems to compare favorably for the area.
Ideal in every way
Consulted Tripadvisor and rough guide for a clean, safe hotel in central Lisbon for a weekend away with my wife. Everything perfect.
Central to walk or take excellent Metro service. Hotel staff gave fantastic suggestions for where to go and not go. Great value for money. What more can be said..we will be back.
Hotel Dom Carlos...The Place to Stay
I have stayed at a few locations in this area over the years and the Hotel Dom Carlos is my favorite. The rates are reasonable. The rooms are clean. They are well insulated from interior sound (stayed at another in hotel in the area and the walls were paper thin). You are within a block from the subway, bus stop, and bank. The desk staff had pretty good command of the English language. The complimentary breakfast is EXCELLENT. If you're in the area for lunch, I'd suggest going to the cafe in front of the hotel on the right side (looking at the road)...sorry, the name escapes me. There are other good cafes in the area but it would be too confusing for you to read since I can't recall any names (will write them down on my next trip ;-)...the only other I remember is about 10 minutes away via cab...Tico Tico...my favorite place to eat. The only draw back I experienced at Hotel Dom Carlos (and the others) was street noise...whether the windows are open or closed. However, staying on a higher floor will lessen that problem....it helped us. Enjoy your stay!

... through a castle built by masons and then saw the westernmost point of continental Europe. Beautiful! On my last day I ventured out with an Irish guy I had met on the previous day's tour to see the district of Balem, just outside of Lisbon. We had a great time seeing all the buildings and learning about the extensive history Portugal has in sending out explorative ships all over the world. Amazing! That afternoon I headed to the bus station set for Porto! Love ya, ...
... able to whip out a book that tells you where to go and what you are seeing there. Anyway, we went into the maritime museum and I have to admit I didn't find it as interesting as Dennis did. There are lots and lots and LOTS of models of ships, but after my lunchtime rose I only felt like laying down on one of the rare benches I saw and taking a nice little nap. We finally made it to the end of the gallery where they had information about the royal yacht and the actual bedrooms of ...
To say Portugal is the forgotten country of Western Europe would be an understatement. From a purely touristic standpoint Portugal is not even in the top 10 in tourism in Europe (unlike its Iberian neighbor which is #2) and the main argument according to US News as to why you should visit Lisbon is "its affordability. You might pay a hefty sum to get here, but you'll pay far less (relative to other Western European capitals) on accommodations, meals and attractions". The thing is, I ...
From afar we took picture of yet another castle – the Moorish Castle. It looks like a fort, but we were told that there’s nothing inside -- so we didn’t visit.
On our way back to Lisbon we drove by the westernmost point of Europe -- , ...
... stay awake long enough to go to the concert. They were starting their European segment of the tour. We also found our way to the supermarket, to pick up breakfast and snacks. Anita, I thought of you as I picked up Snickers for the road.
In the end, we did not get to the concert, and called it a night around 9pm. I was very impressed with how well everyone handled themselves on little sleep. Tomorrow we are doing super touristy things in Belém!
