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.

... guitar (12 strings, beautiful), sometimes, some other singers pop in and do a song or three. The two guitar players are like a karaoke machine. It is great fun. The food was also very good. It wasn't a cheap evening at E$55. But it was good.
The only thing left to do was to get more Chicken before we left Portugal the following day. So that is what we did. And it was still delicious. That is ALL we did on our last day.
Next stop London!
... and he could speak really well. That’s another thing I’ve notices, there are a lot of people from England in Lisboa. It’s so cool to hear them talk English because they have the fancy accents. After dinner we found a mini mart to buy water for the night and a cheap store to buy some necessities and headed back to the hostel because we’re lame, but mostly jet lagged and tired.
Oh yeah! We met our roommate, ...
... as far as why they chose to leave their countries and come to Portugal. Many came from their respective countries in order to find work only to be disappointed by the economic crisis of 2008-2009. Portugal was known to them as a comfortable country to live in with a lot of tolerance for many different types of people. In the novel, The Night in Lisbon, Portugal's accommodating nature is mentioned several times. For example, during WWII Portugal was ...

Tower of Belem- Amazing!!! It is a small fortress built in the 16th century and is a world heritage site. The architecture is so impressive and being able to walk in and explore the different levels was very rewarding.

The newer part incorporates wide avenues and lots of park areas The Edward V11 Botanical gardens is an excellent example of how green areas have been nurtured. To a certain extent there is a flavour of San Francisco with its hills and the wide river with its replica suspension bridge designed by the same architect as the Golden Gate Bridge.
There are only two major bridges the suspension bridge 2.8 km long once ...
