Marques De Pombal Hotel
Travel Blogs from Lisbon
Wayne went to meetings all day so I was on my own. With a little fear due to my amazing ability to get lost practically anywhere, I set out for the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum. I had a iPhone with a card bought for use in Lisbon, and with Google Maps I made it to my destination with relatively little trouble. It's very nice having such modern …
Wayne was in meetings most of the day, so I decided to take a Lisbon Walking Tour through the Alfama. Due to very crooked streets and my very bad sense of direction I thought paying someone to follow them around the ancient part of the city was wise. The tour was led by a young woman with impeccable English, and she was a fountain of information. I …
Too tired to write anything beyond the tact that we have arrived and found our hotel in the heart of Lisbon. I am loopy from jet lag, but after a two hour rest we did get out and walk to the riverfront for a meal, bypassing the barnacles and settling on unexotic Italian fare for our first sleep deprived evening. I was impressed with the width of …
Yesterday we started touring at 10:00 am and did not stop until 12 hours later. We walked 22,248 steps, which translates into 11.2 miles. All without complaint because we were hiking in castles and on castle walls. Sintra is a small town built into a hill (our house has nothing on this town) about 17 kilometers from Lisbon, but a world away in feel …

A Good Hotel in Lisbon
Very good hotel. Not much character perhaps but great staff comfortable very clean rooms free internet good breakfast good location. Not too expensive. Will go back.
We booked this Hotel based on the two earlier reviews and are not sorry. Great find. Good standard, clean and very friendly service. Well located, within waking distance of centre and a metro very close by for those who prefer not to walk. Lisbon was lovely enjoyed the whole experience. Loved the transport system very reasonable and easy to get around - one day pass for all public transports only 3.30 covers all. Tram 15e to Belem - Get off at stop after Belem and then stroll back. Enjoyed Belem and those famous custard tarts. Ate in a nice little restraunt a few door away from the famous pastries shop. Very good value. Tram 28 took us up hills to St Georges Castle lovely views over the city and Sintra is a must what a lovely little place, fab to sit outside Cafe Paris and watch all the tourists. The trip on bus 434 is good and palace nice to see. Will go back and will stay at M De P Hotel again. As last review said - take taxi to airport - we took one from rank just outside hotel and it was E8. for the trip.
Very good hotel
very good hotel. nice and clean room with all comfort.very good breakfast.
I booked this hotel based on the one review on Tripadvisor and the photographs on the hotel's Website. It was the best decision ever. My mother, two aunts and I stayed at the hotel for 10 days. It was a great hit with my family - these ladies are very fussy when it comes to cleanliness!!!!! The hotel is very clean and modern. The sheets, towels, and shower curtains were changed every day. I stayed in a twin room which is not very big but just the right size with good closets and drawer space for two. The staff is top notch - very friendly yet professional. They were helpful with booking restaurants, recommending good places to eat, and calling taxis. The bar and restaurant are great - we dined in their restaurant on two occasions, and we always liked to have a drink in the bar at the end of the day. The breakfast servings are typical - breads, jams, cheese, ham, cereals, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausages, however, the coffee is really excellent - try a double espresso with hot milk!! As to location - perfect - close to the Metro stop called Marques do Pombal. The Metro system is very efficient. There is heavy traffic on the Avenue outside the hotel but not a sound gets through the windows. I was able to get a little off the price of the hotel through toursforyou.com - a tour group I used for a day trip to Obidos etc. Lisbon is a terrific place and the people are very friendly, and the Marques is just like Lisboa!!!
Very nice "unknown" hotel
My parents, myself, and son (2 1/2 years old) stayed at this hotel for 3 days 2 nights. The rooms were modern, nicely furnished and very clean. I found in my hotel research that most hotels do not allow 3 adults in the room or will charge for the extra person. Marques De Pombal did not charge us extra for a 3rd adult in the room and was very accomodating. We got to the hotel around 10am and they allowed us to check in early. The hotel is centrally located and has a subway stop in front of the hotel. Cab rides to sites in Lisbon were very inexpensive (5-7 euros). The breakfast was included with the room price and they had a nice assortment of both hot and cold breakfast foods. I definitely recommend this hotel.
