Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisboa
Travel Blogs from Lisbon
We both had trouble sleeping last night (Yvonne blames the sangria) and we both were groggy this morning. The trip this morning was to the small town of Sintra, located 15 miles north of Lisbon. It is the location of the summer palaces of Portuguese royalty for over 500 years. The town is at a higher elevation near the sea and a perfect location to …
We arrived here around 2:30 pm, on a great flight from Amsterdam; we got our luggage then took a cab to our hotel, Four Seasons Ritz. We had a fast check-in and have unpacked!
Today, we visited the Museum of Beaux Arts as well as the workshop where they had short explanations on things like how to decorate books using gold leaf or how to do wood inlaying. We then walked through the historic Alfama district to the Saint Justo elevator which people use when they don't want to or can't climb up the stairs. (Lisbon is fairly …
Today was our first day of touring in Portugal. Portuguese surprisingly sounds like French with a lot of oo and sh sounds. As a rule of thumb, "oh" sounds tend to become "oo" sounds and "s" sounds become "sh" sounds. For example, quanto custa sounds like "kwan-too coosh-tah"? Before our tour, Joe Corn, one of the study leaders on our trip, gave a …
After 23 hours of travel, Char and I finally arrived in Lisbon, Portugal. Six of those hours were spent in London Heathrow. Luckily, the night before, I caved in and bought a Servisair airport lounge reservation. It was definitely worth the 18 pounds I paid. They had free snacks and drinks and very comfortable couches that made the layover bearable …

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisboa Lisbon
It is obvious that when this hotel was built it was to be a bastion of luxury, and it surely was in its day. Although the Four Seasons renovation of the mid-century modern look of the Ritz is not entirely successful, this is still a beautiful hotel. And while it may not look like a Four Seasons in every detail, it certainly feels like one with the service you receive. The staff is well trained and their professionalism makes up for any design shortcomings. If the Four Seasons' purpose in building the new spa was to create an oasis of relaxation and calm in a busy city, they suceeded. This hotel is a mostly successful blending of different styles and decades, and a comfortable break from a surprisingly busy city. One other note: this hotel is not as far away from the action as one might think; just bring a good pair of walking shoes and be ready to take a cab every so often.
The Ritz Four Seasons in Lisbon is a true gem. It really stands out.
June 2004. The staff here is extrodinary. They called our entire family by first name each time we entered and exited. rooms are exceptionally large. The breakfasts are in a beautiful garden room. The pool/spa area is immaculate, modern escape from the hustle bustle of Lisbon. If we didn't have so much sightseeing I could have stayed at the pool all day. Snacks left daily in the room for our children. Lots of celebrities coming and going.
After spending a memorable journey at the Four Seasons in Prague (Czech Republic) years ago, we were excited to be hosted at the Four Seasons in Lisbon last February durung a weekend. Everything was perfect and worthy of a Luxury hotel. Reception and concierge staff were very courteous, friendly and thoughtful, our king size bed room were spacious with a large balcony overlooking Edouardo VII Park. Ideally located in the center of Lisbon, it took us a few minutes walk to reach art gallery, museum and the city's most famous places. When coming back to the hotel a late evening after a tiring day tour around the city, I found a birthday cake in our room! oh God! they had noticed it's was my birthday (probably from my passport when we checked in). We didn't have lunch or dinner in the hotel's restaurants, but have had room service one evening and the food was delicious! Well, what you need more from a hotel? I highly recommend the Four Seasons hotels wherever you'll stay, it's valuable and it's worth every buck you spend.
Quite simply the best in Lisbon. The service is exactly what you expect from Four Seasons but with a friendly manner that surprises. The breakfast is to order, the rooms of amazing size and the whole hotel exudes a feel of luxury and makes you feel special.
I stayed at the Ritz hotel in Lisbon in March 2004, and had a wonderful stay. We upgraded to a deluxe room on the 10th floor and the view was fantastic. You could see across the city to St Georges castle and the coast.
A truly great hotel
The Ritz combines old-world class with the quality standards of Four Seasons. One of Europe's great hotels: decor, service, room, food, excellent new spa. Very good value.
I found the service excellent (as usual) in this Four Seasons. Everyone was extremely polite and any concerns were immediately taken care of.
The hotel is 5-star in quality through-and-through and you pay for it.
But the health club on the roof is very well equiped and the basement swimming pool is too die for. Huge bathrooms too and the most comfortable beds in the world. The only downside is its location in the modern part of Lisbon which makes the tourist sites a taxi cab ride away.
Staff very rude
A nice hotel, but not with the service of a Four Seasons Hotel. Staff very hold, very rude. I think they need to change the recepction and restourant staff, because they treat me as a animal
Nice hotel with very friendly staffs. The room was one of the biggest in the hotels I've stayed at in Europe.
