We toured the Monsterio dos Jeronimos. This is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Sight. It was my favorite on this entire tour. In this monastery, explorers would pray for a safe journey to the New World. It was HUGE! The walls and ceiling were all made of beautiful polished limestone. Large columns were adorned with intricate pictures from the …
I began the day with a lovely breakfast spread at our hotel. I wished to see some of the city before the tour began so I decided to go for a long walk. Unfortunatly, the weather decided not to cooperate. I instead took a brisk walk and headed back to my luxorious hotel. At 2:00 PM my tour of the Iberian Peninsula began! Everyone piled onto a very …
... on board. Our ship, Azura, left next leaving Oriana on her own. Sailing under the suspension bridge is an experience because the noise of the traffic on the bridge carries on underneath but in an unusual way. The ship only just seemed to scrape underneath. We had very good conversation with Jacky and Mick, who are sitting next to us at dinner. They have made our dinners extremely pleasant. We then met up with Jo and Chris later on the dance floor. A good ...
From Venice we flew to Lisbon. Both Jason and I were glued to the windows eager to catch a view of the country we had been obsessed with for the past year. The ground looked arid and dry and suddenly the coast appeared with Lisbon sprouting next to the ocean and a river. When we landed everyone clapped and Jason and I joined in.
Our pure joy at being in Lisbon was dampened slightly over our apprehension about ...
... what kind. I do not like fish and would not have eaten it with prior knowledge that it was fish. But hey it was tasty. The server came back and asked what I wanted and I pointed to a beef dish. He said they were out of it. I decided on another beef dish and about ten minutes later
he came back and said they were out of it too. Then I chose a chicken dish. When it was brought out to me the clear bowl ...

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!
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.
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.
