... back on time and the ship had to wait. We managed to see the 3 Queens sailing out of Lisbon after dinner and then went to see a Romantic Comedy called the Girl on a Bicycle. This was a bit silly but nevertheless amusing. The alternative tonight was the show featuring 'a man called Kev' who played the piano and described as the only comedian in Armenia, so we opted for the film. We will never know if we made the right choice but it turned out that Kev was not Armenian and very funny!
... our first morning in Lisbon, we woke up early, got breakfast, bought some fruit at the local grocery store and headed to the beach. Because we had assumed the weather wasn't going to be that hot and we all brought carry-on-bags, none of us remembered to pack sunscreen. Knowing my white-girl genes, I was determined to find sunscreen in one of the many little stores along the path to the beach. Because the Portuguese locals obviously do not need the sunscreen as much ...
... and there was an equally scary looking building with green doors hoping it wasn’t one of the two I went back
to the office. I did this 2 more times until I finally realized that they were referring to a crystal building with green letters when they were saying green building. During my multiple detours to the original office I was so frustrated and tired that I burst into tears and quickly wiped them away while I kept walking. I ...
... Se Catedral in Portugeuse. There were downpours of rain every now and then and the weather was very much of the 'four seasons in one day' character,nautical like New Zealand! We visited both the cathedral and the castle climbing us a rather large hill to do so - the view was worth it. At the top of the cathedral we could see the next rain shower coming in across the water .... We got a pretty cool photo. Also, forgot to mention, that so far all of the ...
I was awake at 3:00 AM and ready when the driver picked me up at 4:00 AM to take me to the airport. He also had to pick up a couple at another hotel where we waited twenty minutes or more for them. But I had plenty of time and got to the airport with no problems where I would wait about two ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Lisbon
Great value for money
More than I expected from a Holiday Inn. The rooms are clean and modern and great value for money. I had a junior suite which came with a really good sized bathroom and very comfortable bed but located on the main road, which although was much quieter at night was quite noisy during the day. Breakfast was of good standard, usual buffet, but the evening restaurant meal was poor standard. Staff friendly and extremely helpful and polite. Located close to one of the main shopping streets and the metro which for 70C takes you directly to the old town.
Excellent value for money hotel. Located outside the central toruist area of town but close and handy for the metro - word of warning make sure you get a map of the area around the hotel from reception we got Very Very lost on way back on the first night because of following the intersting Lisbon Bus Stop maps. We later found out we were very close to a stop on the "blue" line sightseeing bus tour!!
Just stayed a night at the hotel.
The view from the 10th floor were magnificent.
Execellent helpfull english speaking staff.
not to far from metro.
Nice hotel room!
I stay there for 3 nights in April 2004. I booked for a single room, and got a double room (2 double beds in fact). Everything was new. The room and the bathroom were spacious. The staff was very helpful. I could not connect to the internet, and the receptionist came to help straight away. It was my computer's problem than theirs.
The breakfast was standard, lots of fruits to choose from as well.
The location is easily reached from the airport by bus and to other places by metro.
I have stayed in this hotel about 20 times now (over the last 8 years or so both for business and pleasure), and I always love it! In 2004 I stayed there 5 times! The rates when you book direct on the web are great (I usually pay between €60 and €70 excl. breakfast).
My wife and I (on AARP rate) stayed two nights in May 2005 at the Lisbon Holiday Inn. We were given (at the same low rate) a beautiful, two-room suite that was the most spacious quarters we have ever had in Europe! The front desk was most helpful in answering questions. And the hotel is immaculate. It is located in a fairly nice neighborhood halfway between a major blvd. and several technical univeristy buildings. The parking garage is under the hotel and costs nearly 12 euros a night (one can unpack from the garage and take an elevator directly to your floor). There are a few temporary spaces in front of the hotel for unloading or getting directions (you will need them) to the parking garage. We did not use the hotel breakfast (11 euros per), so no comments on its quality. Both Metro stations are about 3-4 blocks way (a minor downside) but there is a
Without praise or blame
We stayed at this hotel for two nights: the hall is elegant, the room quite spacious, the bathroom spotless, with a great shower, but the bed was a queen bed, very very small (you can consider it a big SINGLE bed...).
Breakfast is quite poor, I expected another standard from holiday inn...however you get what you pay for: we found on ich hotel web site a good rate, 70 euro/room w/breakfast, and it was worth this value.
We had a lovely overnight stay at this hotel. The surroundings were nice--not too far a walk (about 5 blocks) from the Saldanha Metro stop. The hotel itself had a beautiful, spacious lobby, and our room was huge. The bathroom and particularly the shower were fabulous (especially welcome after a hideous experience at the Residencial Luanda in Tomar).
The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had to leave at 4 a.m. to catch a flight, and they were great about the wake-up call and getting us a cab. Check-out was smooth and easy. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel.
My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in August 2004. It is an excellent four-star hotel with rooftop pool, gym, decently-priced restaurant and good bar. The rooms are stylish and comfortable with excellent views of the city. Although a few minutes from the heart of Lisbon by metro this hotel has everything you need for a memorable stay in the Portugese capital.
Remodeling successful; great trip
My family stayed at the Holiday Inn Lisbon (in two rooms) between the 19th and 26th of April. We were very pleased with the hotel. Extensive remodeling was still in process; some of the floors had not yet been completed. The remodeling resulted in a functional and attractive facility. We were quite impressed by the comfort and furnishings of the room. Our experiences with the bar and the restaurant were also very good. Staff - desk, restaurant, and housekeeping - were friendly and helpful. Taxis were always available, and the fares to the downtown attractions reasonable. The walk to the Metro station and nearby restaurants wasn't onerous. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to spend some time in Lisbon, either for business or pleasure.
