Excellent hotel! Great staff and facility. Wonderful location and if you are renting a car in Portugal, this is the place to rent at EuroCar.

Historical Traveler Reviews Tivoli Lisboa Lisbon
Rooms are ok if basic for 5* but the service is spot on and the breakfast excellent. The central location is hard to beat and the pool so relaxing for a central location. Go again for sure if only they could do something about those hills!
What a disappointment
Having based our decision where to stay in Lisbon for an extended weekend on the many very positive reviews for this hotel in this forum we were quite disappointed by this hotel. It lacks any character or charme and cannot make up for that by anything else.
Perhaps at some time in the past this hotel qualified for the 5 stars it is rated at, but certainly not anymore. Hotel staff was on several occasions neither friendly nor helpful. Nobody really seemed to bother whether their guests are happy or not. Our room was very standard. Typical layout and size, the bathroom needing renovation badly (cracks everywhere and very low water pressure). Breakfast was OK for fruit lovers. Anybody likes eggs, ham or sausages definitely has to look elsewhere.
To sum it up we can say that Lisbon is definitely worth visiting or revisiting but we advise anybody willing to pay 5 star money to stay elsewhere.
Amazing breakfast, great location, wonderful traditional hotel
We stayed at the hotel in late July 2004. The kind of big city hotel where everything is very proper and formal. The staff was very helpful as we were not familiar with Lisbon and helped us several times with directions and attractions. I'm a big fan of breakfast and the Sunday morning breakfast was spectacular. Everything you can imagine including champagne, served in a wonderful room looking out over the boulevard. It was very hot and finding a hotel in the heart of Lisbon with an outdoor pool with shade was a nice bonus. Our room was clean and comfortable. There are a number of attractions, restaurants and churches all within easy walking distance from the hotel.
After visiting the Grand Prix at Estoril (the two wheeled more exiting one) my wife and i decided to spend a few days in lisbon. The hotel Tivoli lisboa was our final choice. What a clever choice it was. Ok i know it is a five star but we found a junior suite for £120 on expedia in september.
Location was ideal, ten mins by foot to the heart of things. Rooms where well presented and spotless. Staff very friendly, smartly dressed and well trained. It even had a moderate sized pool area again with bar and showers plus friendly staff.
A return to lisbon would find me back at the Tivoli
Will go there again
Booked this hotel over the internet for a very reasonable rate 2 days in advance of arrival. Arrived at 9.30 in the morning and could check into my room straight away. The management celebrated my birthday with complimentary champagne and cake in the room on the evening of my birthday! Nice business centre with free internet access. Great breakfast. Only hotel with pool in central Lisbon, I believe. Nice fish restaurants down the hill on the right.
Great hotel, well-located
Very pleasant hotel - bright, clean, airy rooms; spacious lobby; courteous and friendly staff; attractive dining room with excellent buffet breakfast. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would be happy to go back there again.
A True Five Star Hotel
We started and ended our ten night Spain-Portugal trip at the Tivoli Lisboa. From the moment we stopped our car in the front, they took over -unloading our luggage, delivering it to our room, and checking us in without even a credit card imprint (the room was already paid).
Breakfast was very good, especially the fresh fruit. Try the seafood restaurant a couple of blocks down the street (displaying lobsters, crabs, shrimp, etc) for a great dinner. The free high speed internet service was a real plus!
The Tivoli Lisboa Hotel exceeded my expectations, together with Lisboa in general. Nice hotel, good size room, friendly staff, great location & a superb buffet breakfast included. Avoid eating at the restaurant of the top floor. Fantastic view but a rip off.
An old-fashion hotel
My hubby and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early July 2003.
The hotel is a typical old-fashion hotel. Medium room size which needs some maintenance. It takes you about 10 minutes to walk to the shopping area at Rossio. Buffet breakfast is good. If you are looking for modern type of hotel, try next door's new NH Liberdade Hotel.
Large hotel with good amenities. Rooms a fair size for a european (me) but a little samll compared to US Hotels.
Needs some room maintenance but staff helpful and friendly. Only dial up internet access in the rooms and 64kb in the office centre.
Food is good but a little expensive, but this is true of most Lisbon hotels.
Loads of different eating places around and sea food is a local speciality.

We have an extra day in Lisbon so we decided to walk to some of the areas that we missed with Filipa two weeks ago when my foot was so bad. We walked about three miles to the Rossio (square), the waterfront and along the beautiful Avenida Liberdade. It is a beautiful day, though hot. The sun here is very intense. Lisbon is known for pickpockets and …
This morning's tour of Lisbon began with a drive through the city and out to the Monument of Discoveries, commemorating Portugal's sear fearing and literary heritage. There is a wonderful mosaic map of the world done in marble in front of the monument which was given to Portugal by South Africa. It shows the various types of ships and dates on …
... the King Josephs statute and the entrance gate to the city. After 1910 they had basically a repressive govt led by Salazar. After he died, his party (new states) lived on, but continued to be a repressed state with secret police etc. This government was overthrown by a bloodless coup by the army in 1984. The mighty bridge over the Tajo river was originally opened jn 1966 as the Salazar bridge but was renamed as the 25th April bridge - after the coup ...
... back of the tram with a small crack opened on one of the windows. Tina was tired from being on high alert due to pick pocketing issues on the funiculars. From Praca Comercio to Armazens do Chiado, it was all Tina heaven. Shopping shopping shopping. We stopped at Santini's Gelato. Oh god, another line up. We waited in line for 20 min before we got our hands on their famous gelato. Tina was not so impressed with the strawberry flavour and thought it was reproducible, but I ...

Enough gassing! Yesterday we walked around Lisbon from 10am till 10 pm, twelve hours.....not planned, just happened. Lisbon sits on seven hills with the sea to the west. We were glad we had taken the bus in and not the bikes because it is not an easy city to cycle around....too many steps.
Unfortunately the clear blue skies of the Algarve had not come with us and ...
