Real Parque Hotel
Travel Blogs from Lisbon
After the tower, I went back to the Historical part of Lisbon and participated in a free walking hour of the city (advertised by the Hostel). Over half of the sites visited on the tour I had been to on our early Friday morning adventure all over the city (we really managed to see a lot that first day exploring by ourselves). The awesome benefit of the tour, however, was catching a little bit of the history behind all these impressive sites. As ...

I was going to treat myself to a topless bus tour but was told that a lot of the roads would be cordoned off so it was not worth doing today. I then proceeded to walk along the waters edge until my waxing appointment which was to be at a hairdresser in the station! Well all in all she did do a great job and my legs can ...

Not all a copy of the most famous one in Paris, but just lots of big 'Triumph Arches'* Other things we learnt on the tour was the history of Portugal, how it was once immensly rich due to its worldy discoveries but is now very poor, about how it is technically the oldest country in Europe ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Real Parque Hotel Lisbon
Spent 2 pre-cruise nights at this fine property. Our experience began when we arrived from the airport and the young gentleman at the front desk shook my hand and warmly welcomed us to Lisbon and the Real Parque. The accommodations were spacious, spotless, very nicely furnished, and in superb condition.
A real find!
Superb accomodation at a knockdown price in a quiet location just off the centre of Lisbon. Our triple room (85 Euro booked through Bookings)was smart and spacious and the reception staff were both knowledgeable and helpful. Metro journey into city centre took less than 10 minutes and cost only 0.65cents. You will be hard pushed to find a better deal anywhere
We just returned from Lisbon on 17 March and we are delighted with our entire experience. The hotel was wonderful. Very clean and charming rooms. The front desk workers spoke perfect English and were so helpful with any questions or needs. The breakfast buffet that is included with the room fee was impressive. Not the usual hard roll and coffee. The had everything from eggs, bacon, fruits, rolls, yogurt to the local cured meats etc. Overall we were very happy with our experience at the Real Parque and with Portugal.
Very good value for money out of season
Have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel, booked via Expedia UK following all the good reviews. We were not disappointed. Pre-season rates for this four star hotel are incredible. The service, room quality, cleanliness, restaurant and breakfast facilities are excellent, and the staff exceptionally friendly (bar one slightly brusque female receptionist!). Very easy to reach via airport bus, and nearest Metro station 5 minutes away.
Friendly, clean, helpful staff
I spent 3 nights in this **** hotel. The location is quiet, but has a good access to the metro (S. Sebastioa, blue line) and is next to the shopping centre El Corte Ingles.
The breakfast is a lovely continental spread with cheeses fruit pastries etc.
We paid EUR 75 per night for a double bed room which we thought excellent value.
The Taxi from the Airport with 1 piece of luggage is around EUR 7, even if the driver insists to pay more.
I recently spent 5 nights at the Real Parque Hotel. It's not in the centre of the city but in a quieter area, which I preferred. The city centre is a mere 3 or 4 short stops on the metro and there's a station (Sao Sebastio) very close by - turn a couple of corners and you're there. This is much closer to the hotel than the Parque stop, by the way, and the metro entrance is shared with that of the huge El Corte Ingles department store - the city's largest and classiest.
We spent 3 nights (Jan.23-26) at Real Parque Hotel. It is located a little bit far from downtown but there is a metro station (Parque) nearby. Situated in a quiet residential area. Unfortunately we could not get a non-smoking room but the room did not smell smoking. Our room was on the 8th floor, and it was very clean and quiet. This Hotel seems to be very popular among business travelers.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful daily breakfast with cheerful a cheerful and upbeat atmosphere. Very clean, nice rooms with great mini bar and safe services. Highly recomended@!
An excellent hotel
This Hotel has everything for a very reasonable price. It is quiet, very well situated close to the metro. The service is excellent, and the breakfast is first class. Easy access to the airport, would stay there again without hesitation.
Hotel Real Parque/Beautiful
Our one nite stay was exceptional, beautiful room, service was high quality. The Coffee Shop, had a full dinner menu, priced right. Everything you want in a shopping mecca outside the door. Not as close to airport as stated however. Wish we had more time to enjoy it.
