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.

... evaporating liquid all over the fingers and palms.
At busy meal times this creates the impression of crowds of tormented old people entering the gates of Hell, wringing their hands in fear of the horrors which await them. Quite right too, if it's dinner at the Belvedere.

We also visited many squares which names are unpronounceable but one was the "commerce square" which used to be a hive of industry when Portuguese traders returned with exotic goods in years gone by.

... mall and then boarded the bus for our next destination -- Pena Palace, located in the mountains above the resort village of Sintra. We drove through Lisbon down the Avenue de Liberdaden, passing the botanical gardens and the aqueduct on our way. Lisbon, itself a city of 1.5 million, has huge suburbs with another 1.5 million people, so it was quite a while before we left the metro area. Once we did, we continued to travel through small towns until we got to Sintra, a ...
... user Islamic rule. Out the back of the castle there were some ruins of a residential area dating from the 7th to the 4th century BC & a palace of which the last remains had called down in the 1755 earthquake. We carried on walking around the castle walls were we got some beautiful views of Lisbon as the sun was going down. We left there and went down to walk around the streets of the city centre for a while, where we found some Portuguese tarts we had been told we must ...
