Hotel Travel Park
Travel Blogs from Lisbon
Quiet on a Sunday, the Belem area of Lisbon, is a tranquil part of the city and definitely the place to visit if you have no time for anything else. Just 20 minutes on the fast tram (no 15), its easy enough to locate... and covered by a metro ticket (loaded with money rather than trips, €1.25 each way).

... afternoon we pass by Gibraltar on our way to Malta. DAY 5 We had a relatively lazy day, although the number of times we have climbed the staircases and walked along long corridors we have not been sedentary. Breakfast was taken on the balcony in our room as it was my birthday and it was already warm by 8.30am. The sky was cloudless but there was quite a stiff breeze but we were sheltered where we were. I had a number of text messages to respond to, mainly from ...
... We had been told to go immediately to the USAIR baggage claim office and that our bags would be waiting or us in some back office. We had our doubts.
In a small, hot office we learned with dismay that our bags were still in Boston. Why? We never even went to Boston. But the baggage part of this story has a lot of twists and turns that do not make sense. The nice Portuguese guy representing USAIR could ...
... in was hot on the bottom but the food was cold. The contents in the bowl looked awful. It looked like pea soup straight from Linda Blair's mouth in THE EXORCIST. There were some unidentifiable ingredients and a big tennis ball size piece of chicken. What I tasted was not of this world and the more I think about it possibly the Linda Blair comparison might be right on target. I paid for the meal but did ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Travel Park Lisbon
Great mid range hotel
We stayed at the Travel Park for 2 nights in October 2005. This was a great 3.5 star hotel located right over the railway station with easy access to everything. Travel (like most things in Portugal) is cheap.
We paid just over $100 AUS per night which was a great bargain as a good breakfast was included, the staff all spoke English and were so helpful.
The rooms are a tiny bit tired but clean and a good size. The bathroom was fairly recently renovated, clean and great shower pressure!
Great place to stay at a really good price.
A good one.....really....
With focus on price/quality rate one of the best so far in Lisbon. In all aspects a good one: metro, taxi, staff, rooms (ask for a 'high' room because of the low rumble of the metro), special lunch offer etc. We stayed there in aug 2004 for 4 days.
Great three star hotel
We stayed in Travel Park Hotel from 11 to 15 august 2005. We booked it on the web at a very good rate (Expedia: 65€ per a double room, breakfast included).
Very clean, wide rooms, good bathroom.
The location is perfect: just 10 minutes to the airport but close to the center, next to Anjos metro station (5 minutes to the centre).
Good breakfast, friendly staff.
I would classify it as a four-star hotel rather than a three star one.
To be suggested.
Enjoyable stay at The Travel Park
We booked 6 nights at The Travel Park Hotel and had an enjoyable stay. The Hotel is typical 'bussiness style' with good smart modern decor. On a fairly busy road within walking distance of the main tourist area (15 mins) and very conveinient for the Metro (In fact it is built above Anjos station and you can hear the trains as a low background rumble - but it did not disturb us). Standard hot buffet breakfast - OK but nothing special. You can also take your breakfast into the pleasant, small, roof garden. Staff friendly, rooms clean and air conditioned and reasonable size. Ideal as a central base to explore Lisbon and surroundings using their excellent public transport as we did.
Very Pleasant Stay
My daughter and I stayed at the Travel Park and were very pleasantly surprised. Staff was very helpful and spoke excellent English. The place looked clean and new everywhere. Also, although it was not in the heart of the city, it was only a half block from the metro so very convenient. One of the nicest hotels in Europe for the price.
Great modern clean stylish,good location
we stayed at the Travel Park for one night on April 1st 2005, it cost 51 euros booking through Travelocity on the web - including buffet breakfast. It would have cost 120 euros if we had walked in off the street...the hotel is modern, of similar standard to Hilton Hotels - but much more stylishly furnished - check out the lighting !! There is a great electronic safe in the rooms, it is opposite a subway station which takes you into the city centre in under 5 mins. A taxi from the airport cost under 10 euros and the staff were friendly and helpful.
We stayed here for 4 nights during EURO 2004 in late June. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly and catering. There was not much of a bar so we didn'y hang out there at night. The room was small compared to US type rooms but definitely not tiny. The floors were hardwood and everything was clean. The bathroom was fantasic with its marbled counter tops and efficient plumbing.
It was centrally located although it was about a 15 minute walk from the main squares.
While we paid more then we wanted to (naturally the prices were jacked up a bit because of the tourney) we'd stay here again.
We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Excellent room, well decorated, very tidy and clean. Lovely bathroom. Good air conditioning and ventilation. Really comfortable beds. At walking distance from any point of tourist interest. Staff at reception was excellent. Willing to provide assistance when needed. They even arranged a taxi for us (good thing to do and be careful when you take one at the Airport Terminal, should cost you between 8 and 10 Euros, but they can overcharge you for no reason costing the whole journey to the hotel up to 30 Euros... were told to ask for an invoice before taking the taxi at the airport. don't pay if it's more than 10 Euros, just say you need to check with hotel staff first and they will drop the price, I am sure!).
Loved This Hotel!
We loved this hotel: its decor, the room amenitities, the restaurant's breakfast buffet. It's got a terrific location, too -- right near the metro. On the downside, the shower is beautiful but poorly designed -- try as we might, we got water everywhere, including the sleek, modern wooden bathroom door... and service for dinner was so-so. Still, it's a lovely place and I would highly recommend it. It should be a four-star, not a three-star -- it's that nice!
A gem in lisbon
This hotel is a brand new hotel in lisbon. It is perfect to get around and it has a beautiful art deco flare. The service and sympathy of the staff is very good. It has a restaurant and everyone was very keen on satisfying all of our requests. We were extremely surprised by this establishment that seems more of a 4 star than a 3 star hotel. The decoration is amazing. We sincerely recommend it for anyone travelling to lisbon.
