Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Lisbon - Continental

Sehr gute Wahl

from

Ich habe hier zusammen mit meiner Frau und meinem 16 Jahre alten Sohn gewohnt und wir fanden es alle sehr angenehm. Als wir ankamen, fanden wir heraus, dass man uns fälschlicherweise ein Doppelzimmer für 2 Personen zugewiesen hatte. Als ich aber durch unsere Reservierungsdurchschrift beweisen konnte, dass wir uns mit drei Personen angemeldet hatten, bekamen wir sofort eine komfortable Suite zugewiesen. Da hatten wir auch ein separates Zimmer für unseren Sohn dabei. Das Zimmer war Standard für das Holiday Inn, aber sehr sauber und geräumig. Die Lage war super, nur 2 Blöcke von der nächsten Metrostation entfernt. Die Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit und halfen uns gerne bei unseren Restaurantreservierungen. Schöne Unterkunft, guter Preis, wir würden wieder kommen.

Very nice cho

from

Very nice modern hotel. Location isn't perfect, but this of course depends on where you want to go. It's a five minute easy walk to Campo Pequeno, a shopping center with a metro stop and several buses, including the airport shuttle.

My room was lovely, with a very comfortable king-size bed and a spacious, clean bathroom. The hotel must be new: everything was shining and modern. Soundproof windows kept the noise outside, and the individually controlled air conditioning system worked well.

Breakfast had a good variety but was not spectacular. Nothing was especially good, although nothing was bad either.

Service was friendly. Asked for a late check out and was accommodated with a smile.

Definitely a hotel to return to, if you're OK with the location. Paid USD 70 a night (single), breakfast and everything else cincluded, through AsiaRooms.

Great hotel - would definitely stay again

from

We spent a week at the Holiday Inn Continental while attending a conference in Lisbon. The hotel was very clean, room decor was lovely, and the king-size bed was very comfortable. The water pressure in the bathroom was wonderful - I wanted to take the shower home with us:)))

Public areas (lobby, restaurant, coffee shop) were spacious and clean and the location was very close to the metro (about a block away). We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel and will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Lisbon. The room rate was an added bonus - only 80 Euros per night!

An Excellent Choice in Lisbon

from

I can't say enough about this excellent hotel. A 14 day prepaid rate plus a Priority Gold upgrade made it a real deal. The rooms are huge, tastefully decorated, with large baths.The staff is friendly and could not have been more helpful. Both the buffet breakfast and room service menu made for a pleasant stay. While the hotel is located away from the city center the easy access by an efficient metro system made my hotel choice a very affordable trip.

My only warning would not involve the hotel but rather the taxi drivers, otherwise known as the taxi mafia by the locals, when arriving from the airport. Thanks for the Trip Advisor readers I was prepared for this so when the driver tried to raise the rate 4 times the meter I had paper and pencil in hand and, after getting my suitcase, wrote down the cab number from the back windshield as well as the license number and smiled at the driver who quickly gave me money back. On the return to the airport a member of the hotel staff established the cost with the driver.

Thanks, Tripadvisor readers.

Finally I would highly recommend a stay at the Continental Hotel and, should I return to Lisbon this will be hotel of choice.

Very Nic e Choice

from

My wife, 16 year old son and I stayed here and found it very accommodating. We arrived and found that we had erroneously given a room for two; when I provided the reservation form clearly requesting a room for three, we were immediately moved to a very comfortable executive suite, with a separate room for our son. The room itself was standard Holiday Inn, but very clean and spacious. Location was great - just two blocks from the Metro; the staff was pleasant and helpful with making restaurant reservations. Nice place, good price and we'd stay there again.

Tremendous Value and Convenient to Metro

from

The Holiday Inn Continental Hotel Lisbon is an excellent property that was undergoing renovations during out visit in February 2006. We did not notice any disturbances from the work and we would have never known it was going on if not for information provided by the management.

We booked a pre-paid rate of 45 Euros/night and we were pleased to receive an upgrade to a large corner suite based on Priority Club status. It was an incredible value, to say the least. The suite featured a living room/dining area as well as a large bedroom with a king bed. The only drawback was that the internet cable didn't work. The wireless internet service provided by a vendor was pricey at 20 Euros per day and although this is typical in Europe, we were also unable to connect. (This was not the fault of the laptop involved.) We ended up using the business center, where one hour of time goes for 9 Euros. This was sufficient to handle e-mail for several days.

The common areas of the hotel exceed typical Holiday Inn standards. There is an attractive lounge area near the reception area that is tastefully done. A buffet breakfast at 11.50 Euros is decent. (For other meals, it should be noted that dining in Lisbon is available for very reasonable prices and so it is well worth exploring.)

The immediate neighborhood is not exceptionally exciting, although there are a few small restaurants and watering holes within easy walking distance. A big plus is that it is only a two-block walk to the Metro, which is easy to use and will take you to the heart of the old city in a matter of minutes.

We found the staff to be uniformly friendly and very helpful. We would gladly stay again.

Nice hotel

from

We stayed at this hotel in June 2005. We had booked a triple room but when we got there we were told the triple room would be too small so they upgraded us to a suite which was even better! The suite was very nice...the decor was a little dark and heavy but still ok. The bathroom was lovely. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We did have a run-in with one of the restaurant staff who was initially a bit rude which was partly caused by language difficulties but this was quickly rectified. We ate twice at the hotel restaurant downstairs out of pure convenience because there was nothing much else around the hotel area. The food was very nice but for what you were paying, it was a very small quantity. The location of the hotel is not too bad because it is about a 5 minute walk from the metro stop but otherwise there is not too much around. There is a small shopping street with a few restaurants etc on the way to the metro but nothing that special. A metro is needed to go anywhere. We also did a half day trip to Sintra and the Estoril Coast with the company Tours For You who were very professional. I would definitely recommend that too.

Expected nice Holiday Inn standard

from

Only hotel we stayed in in Spain and Portugal with a king sized bed instead of two twin beds pushed together. Good location close to a metro station and only 15 minutes from the historical centre. Prices made up for the distance and the room was great value. Nice room.

Two Days at Sea, then our First Visit to Portugal

... souvenir, we had a little time and found a nice spot with a view behind an old church where we sat in the sun and enjoyed being in this beautiful village.

Our next stop was Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point in continental Europe. There was a huge lighthouse, built in the 1700's and still in operation today, on the cliff overlooking the sea. It was a cool place to visit -- especially since we had just been to the northernmost point of continental Europe (the ...

... the sand, and body surfing in the water. Aside from a couple of jellyfish stings, the day was a total success, a much needed break from the countless days spent touring cities. That night, it was the birthday of a friend on the ship, and we all went out together. A couple of us got separated from the main group when getting taxis, and we ended up at a completely different part of town. We were trying to find our way to the other group when we got talking to some ...

She wakes us up and greets us all and tells us what’s in store for the day and a brief run down of the week. After a quick servo stop and we get some plain croissants and a chocolate one too and it was foul with how much sugar was in it. I miss being able to get sausage rolls and pies ...

Exploring Alfama!

I will include today and yesterday in today's entry. I left my last two days in Portugal free to explore and do whatever I wanted. Of course, I will start at the very beginning. For that’s a very good place to start. Yesterday, I slept in. I met up with a few friends to have lunch at a restaurant near the port that had Internet Wi-Fi connection. Then, I explored the old historic neighborhood of Lisbon, called Alfama, with Chloe ...

We went to an authentic East Indian place for lunch, very good and good fun. This restaurant The Marsala is ranked in the Top 10 for this area. The waiters were awesome, friendly, helpful and quite comical. Here they say Indiana food. We enjoyed a treat of pappudums ...
