Historical Traveler Reviews HF Fenix Lisboa Lisbon
Handy for Metro
Hotel is 15-20 mins walk from main, shops, bars & restaurants but there is a metro station on the hotel's doorstep and it's only 2 & 3 stops to these areas. We got an all day unlimted journey ticket which only cost 3 Euro 30 cents - great value.
Hotel breakfast is the usual stuff, cereal, rolls, croissants, toast, tea, coffee, fresh fruit and there is also hot alternatives such as eggs, beans & sausage although i never tried the hot stuff. The hotel was fully booked the nights we stayed as Lisbon was full of Celtic supporters but there was plenty of food availbale at breakfast and we were there at 9AM two hours after breakfast had started.
Our room was a twin room which was identical to a photograph on most travel websites - i never normally get a room like the ones you see in the photos.
Room had Aircon, which we needed as it was over 70 degrees, even though it was the start of November.
If I return to Lisbon I would defintely consider staying at this hotel again and would therefore recommend to others.
Loved the Hotel Parking
There is ample parking under the hotel and the car park entrance is next to the reception. Make sure you get your ticket validated when you book in. The lift service is great because you can access the car-parking, restaurant, reception, bar and rooms from one lift. The staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel was very clean and comfortable. Our room was small but suited our needs. The hotel is situated next to the very busy Marques de Pombal roundabout so if you are driving make sure you have your wits about you when negotiating it! The Hotel Fenix is an excellent hotel and we would stay there again.
Hotel Fenix is a comfortable buisness class hotel , very clean ,buffet style breakfast ,room service and bar.The only crticism was the room we had was small,however, the amount of time we spent in it did not make it a big problem,the hotel is a little far from the main tourist areas,Bairro Alto,Chiado,but being right on a metro stop it was very easy and extremley good value to get around,if using the metro do get a day pass as it covers all transport,aall in all we were very pleased with our choice of hotel.
Typical metropolitian style hotel
Hotel is in good location but a bit of a walk to get to the main area.
Average style hotel. The breakfast was very disappointing, the platters were almost all empty. There was very little shower pressure in the room - I could barely wash my hair. Parking is paid across the street, but difficult to get there. I would not stay here again.

... s famous funicular trams; we took the Gloria tram. While the views were great from the top, we realized we were now several hills away from the Castle of St. George, so rather than ride the tram back down and then hoof it over to take a separate funicular to St. George, we just grabbed a cab. This was when we realized how reasonably priced they were. We lucked out with a driver who spoke passable English, who gave a little running ...
... octupus with spinach, in a piazza right next to sea was lovely too. Lisbons quayside has bars, restaraunts, shops and monuments strung along it aswell as a couple of marinas and old warehouses. Its not all made the transition from old docks to chichi waterside hubs yet but it will do! It even has some tiny beaches where we caught a sunset and some old rocker buskers playing a Kinks songs....

... br> On Day 2 in Lisbon we continued to be tourists...at breakfast we met a couple ( Paul and Ann-Marie from New Brunswick, who were also going on the cruise )...had a great chat with them...we got a double-decker Hop-on hop-off bus all day ticket...for a short stay this provides an opportunity to see quite a lot of local highlights and sights. Lisbon has some very beautiful architecture with a lot of historical significance. We did have rain on and off during the ...
... lunch!! This time in a modern little bar, almost like a tapas bar, in Porto. Very nice. Then they decided to take us on a little excursion down the coast to a coastal town, Alveiro. It is where there is a huge water inlet, like a massive harbour. It is a port, and lots of fishing. Called the Venice of Portugal as there are canals, and gondola like boats for tourism! All charming. And we drove along the water where there are many striped houses, which was ...
... Tower. Montserrat has a monk church up on the mountain that houses the black Madonna, witch means Black Mary. Up on the mountain it was nice and cool, so the heat that day wasn't a problem. We had lunch up on the mountain at 12:30 am and then headed down toward the monastery. We weren't sure what was actually going on in the monastery but we still went in. It was 3 hours before we saw daylight again. All through ...
