Tivoli Jardim Hotel
Travel Blogs from Lisbon
It was a beautiful morning to set off and walk the streets of Lisbon. It was sunny and 26 degrees. After travelling for over 24 hours it was great to be up and out exploring this city. It was still early so there were not too many people about. We had a lovely coffee and croissant and then wandered down to look at the bay. It seems very hazy and …
... in what is described as a neo-manueline style. It is not that old, built in early 1900's, designed by an Italian architect, who spent 14 years on this work. There are hundreds of working drawings, with details of all of the elaborate decorations, for every aspect of the building, furniture, chapel and features in the garden. The Library has a floor that is edged by mirrors so you feel like the floor is floating and very high as it reflects all the bookcases, ...

For those of you who don't know, I spent a lot of time in hostels 6 years ago when i walked the Camino Santiago across northern Spain. So, I was a bit hesitant to try what the NYT calls a "haute hostel." I've only been here a few hours, but I must admit, it is a bit higher class place than all the hostels and albuergues I stayed at along ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tivoli Jardim Hotel Lisbon
3/4-star hotel with a heart of 5-star
We stayed at this hotel for 9 days at the end of July, 2005. Yes, the location of the hotel is unbeatable; yes, the breakfast is a feast; and yes, the pool and the garden are very nice, but what really separates this hotel from the rest of the "good" hotels is the staff. Starting from the reception desk to the cleaning staff to the restaurant staff, they seem completely dedicated to satisfying the guests. Among all our travels, this hotel sticks out as the best experience. This is saying quite a bit because we normally don't rely on hotel staff for our travel needs. By the end of our stay, we were calling this hotel our home.
Jardim restaurant is well worth the visit with great food (especially their fish items) and the cost is more than reasonable, and the restaurant staff will make your day. The front desk is more than happy to help with any travel questions and to set up reservations for various things offered in the city (restaurants, tours, etc.). The cleaning staff is efficient and never in your way. The almost daily surprises of fruits and pastries in the room top off the nice visit.
We stayed at the Tivoli Jardim during July'05, on recommendation of Tripadvisor members and must concur that this is hotel is value for money. It is well located just off Avenida Liberdade. It has all the amenities one can wish for in one's room, excellent service from the management, good food, a nice balcony(allthough not much to see!) a nice pool (which it shares with the Tivoli Lisboa nextdoor) Its near many good restaurants and it's near the metro. (Restaurandores/Liberdade) Even though we had a front room, since the hotel is a street back from Avenida Liberdade it was nice and quiet. We were very happy and can recommend this hotel!
Recently returned from a 3 night stay. Excellent location for shopping and relaxing. Found some great restaurants, some just a short taxi ride away. Staff extremely helpful and rooms and general hotel areas very cleam. Pool area is a bonus for a city hotel and well serviced.
Very good value for money, particularly when compared to other hotels in the vicinity. Would definately stay again.
Great central hotel
My son and I have just returned from a trip to Lisbon. We stayed at the Tivoli Jardim Hotel - it's a great hotel. Very claen and spacious rooms, clean bed linen everyday and very friendly staff.
One of the best features of the hotel is the swimming pool and garden area. The garden area is really beautiful and the pool is lovely. Overall, a great hotel for central Lisbon.
Very glad we chose the Tivoli Jardim
We stayed a week at the Tivoli Jardim in May 2005 and found it excellent. Our room was comfortable and spacious, with a very welcome balcony and plenty of storage space. Extra pillows and blankets were in the top of the wardrobe so we didn't need to ask for them. Fruit and mineral water were provided twice during our stay. The staff were all very helpful and efficient and spoke impeccable English. I also heard the dining room staff speaking easily in French and German at tables nearby. We also found the Jardim Restaurant excellent for dinner, with a good variety of very well prepared dishes, but you'd be well advised to book if you want a table on Saturday night. The hotel's location is ideal, close to the busy Avenida da Liberdade but not right on it so more peaceful. The Avenida Metro station and also various buses are a couple of minutes walk, and it doesn't take long to get down to the centre on foot. The Tivoli Jardim attracts guests from a variety of countries, and deserves its popularity.

Good Three-Star Hotel
We stayed one night on September 19, 2004.
Good accommodations. This hotel is next door to its 4-star sister hotel, where there is a good restaurant. Jardim's breakfast was a feast, the best during our trip.
We would stay here again.
What a find!!!
We just arrived home from a five-day stay at the Hotel Tivoli Jardem. It was such a nice experience. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful (and most spoke English). We thought the location was perfect. It was off the main street and very quiet but not more than 5 or 10-minute walk to great shopping & excellent restaurants. Public transportation (buses, underground or taxis) was just minutes from the front door of the hotel.
The hotel was clean and nicely decorated. Our room was large with a private balcony. Housekeeping was always friendly and kept our room spotless.
We also enjoyed the Continental breakfast served every morning - fresh melons and pineapple and a good selection of pastries, meats and cheeses. I will stay there again, no question about it!
I was there in september 2001 with my girlfriend.Great location! Very nice room and a very helpfull staff.A must in lisbon!
Highly recommend the Tivoli Jardim
Date of stay March 25-29, 2004. Enjoyed a quiet rear room with beautiful garden view. It lacked a balcony, but I preferred a quiet room with a nice view. My room was clean, comfortable, with a decent size bath, and with enough closet and storage space. Very helpful staff, advised well on sightseeing. Housekeeping was very responsive when needed. I enjoyed the buffet breakfast, and partook of a delicious fish dinner in the hotel dining room, which features Portuguese specialties. Weather was too cool to enjoy the convenient outdoor pool shared with sister hotel Tivoli Lisboa. I liked the convenient location on the Avenida Liberdade, close to the metro stop, and near a good number of restaurants. I was able to get a promotional rate as it was off-season. Many pluses here; and I would be glad to return to the Tivoli Jardim.
