Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Metropole Lisbon
Charming hotel in a great location
This is a boutique hotel, with a charming ambiance.
The staff was very helpful and the decoration is quite nice - they have furniture from the 1920's.
The rooms with a balcony have a wonderful of the Praça do Rossio and the Castle of Saint George. The bathrooms also are very clean and comfortable.
It is located at the very heart of Lisbon, at the main plaza of the city, amongst historical buildings. The subway and the train station are just a two-minute walk far from the hotel.
Do not miss the wine called "Buçaco", which is one of the best Portuguese wines and is produced by the hotel's owner.
Dirty hotel with an awful smell
Have stayed here for 3 nights in Sept 05. The hotel is very dirty, the carpets are filthy with lots of stains. There is a smell throughout the hotel that is quite sickening. The staff seem rude, haughty. Location is the only good thing about this hotel.
Great location, gorgous view, bath need improve but I love the location close to everywhere and good price.THe breakfast was nice.
Great Location. OK Hotel
My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and loved the location for touring Lisbon. The rooms on the front of the hotel (with balcony) are a must for views of the Praca Roddio and the Castelo.
Room was small (and they only had two single beds -- on our honeymoon!) but clean. Good value. Go for the location, not the accomodations.
A great spot on the Praca Rossio
We stayed three nights at this lovely boutique european hotel in September 2003. We had a nice large room with a small balcony facing the square (praca). Great location in old Lisbon- can't be beat!
My husband and I stayed here for 5 days several years ago but still think about how much we loved it. Our charming room had a large terrace that overlooked the main square with an amazing view of the castle on the hill beyond the square. Great terrace to have a glass of port and watch the sunset. Hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of so much great shopping and so many restaurants. We loved it.
Excellent hotel and location but....
check that you have a double bed when you book; they seem to ahve a fair number of twin rooms. Which we were allocated ?
I don't know who recommended room 38....39 was much better (twin beds though).
Hotel manager was extremely helpful in making alternative arrangements.
Make sure you ask for a room overlooking the square
Didn't like it.
I relied upon guidebooks and TripAdvisor for all of the hotels that we stayed in on our trip. The only hotel I would never stay in again is the Metropole. We had a hard time locating the hotel because it was just a small doorway in the building...you had to be upon it to read the Metrople sign over the door. The next surprise was to have to walk up two flights of stairs with your luggage. The man behind the reception desk for the two days that we were there had totally no personality. The next impression was of the ugly carpeting in the hallways...and in the room. The room and bathroom were actually quite nice...but you didn't notice because the carpeting was so ugly. There was trash outside the entrance door. I guess after Madrid and Barcelona which were so clean and lovely, that Lisbon was a shock. There were men and women (with babies) begging everywhere...when you wouldn't give them money, they would curse you. One man yelled at another man who gave him some money that it wasn't enough...apparently he was a beggar with a minimum of 2 Euros. Lisbon was worth seeing...but we were there two nights and a day, and that was plenty. We had an early morning flight and left the hotel at 3:30 a.m. and dragging those suitcases down those stairs at that hour was a very disagreeable experience. Next time I would stay at the Meridian.
We have stayed in many Lisbon hotels, but this is probably the best 'all-rounder'. It's position couldn't be better, no dragging yourself up-hill after a long day sightseeing. The best rooms have views of the castle, so ask for those on the upper floor where not only is the view better, but it's quieter. The rooms are large and comfortable, the bathrooms are large and adequate. Breakfast is reasonable, but served in what is little more than an alcove. Public rooms (or should I say public room) are very tasteful, and the staff are pleasant. Recommended.
The Metropole is an understated boutique hotel in the heart of Lisbon.
The good size rooms facing the plaza are best because you can see all the way to the St Jorge castle. They greet you by name almost immediately...feels like coming home when you get back after a long day of walking. I love the place.

... all over many of the city buildings.
We walked by Lisbon’s oldest cathedral that took 100 years to build. It is 800 years old and has the original door that was installed; much of the rest of the building was restored after the catastrophe of 1775.
The girls walked past a 600-year old laurel tree and madeour way to Castelo de S. Jorge. It still has fortress walls that were built to protect the royals who stayed there. ...
... sick. This was an unsuccessful endeavour and I came away from the garage with an overpriced bottle of Lucozade instead. Shivering in the dank coldness of a mid-term stay airport car park, weighed down by the 5am darkness, we caught the shuttle bus to the terminal. Which is about ten minutes’ walk away. For the first time in my life, I seriously considered not going through with a holiday, the thought of a cosy bed and a handy bucket seeming much more appealing.
... feat when you are 5’ 1 ¾ !! All the rain gets me cause the umbrella is held at such great heights J Luckily it was only a 5 minute walk so no damage done. Regaleira is one of Portugal’s most elaborate estates and as of 1995 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The home itself is beautiful with many carved wooden ceilings (we haven’t seen such amazing wood details to this extent in the castles we have seen on this trip) ...
... gates (see photos) drinking my rose, heaven! The bus played fado music (Portuguese blues) as it went around so that was pleasant. One of the street performers here has a little dog (some sort of terrier) sitting on his shoulder who seems to bob up and down with the music, and is holding a wee cup for the money. I'm sure he gets more because of the dog Update: Mateus Rose is €5 (NZ$8) ...
... an amateur architect from Germany, was instrumental himself in many of the finer details and the end result is a crazy mix match of Islamic, classical, romantic, medieval and naturalistic elements, painted in the most gaudy colours available at the time. It's awesome and I have never seen anything like it before, it is truly a one of a kind... A long, hot and tiring day combined with the lingering effects of a few too many drinks the night before at ...
