Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Turim Lisbon
Hotel mit guter Preis-Leistung
Wir waren im April 2006 für zwei Nächte im Hotel Turim, vor einer Kreuzfahrt. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und wir hatten ein geräumiges Zimmer. Die Betten waren okay und das Zimmer ruhig. Gefallen hat mir vor allem das Personal an der Rezeption, das sehr hilfsbereit war. Das Frühstück war okay. Ich hatte per Direktanruf im Hotel einen besseren Preis für das Zimmer bekommen als auf der Webseite. Das Hotel liegt in der Nähe der Metro, die günstig und leicht benutzbar ist. Wenn Sie sich eine Tageskarte kaufen, dann können Sie damit auch die Straßenbahn und die Busse benutzen. Sie ist ihr Geld wert. Vorsicht aber vor den Taxifahrern am Flughafen. Wir hatten einen der "bösen", der versucht hat, uns den doppelten Preis abzuknöpfen und sich weigerte, sein Taxameter einzuschalten. Dieser lag versteckt unter einem Handtuch auf dem Beifahrersitz. Im Flughafen befindet sich ein Schalter, wo man Taxis für einen festen Preis buchen kann, aber draußen sind sie in der Regel günstiger. Aber checken Sie erst die Preise am Schalter.
We were delighted with this gem
We booked this Hotel for 3 nights in April and could not have been happier with our stay there. We had been in Lisbon 40 years before and it was wonderful to return. Room was superb and bed so comfortable. Breakfast was first class and the service in the dining room, at reception and of the cleaning staff could not be improved on. However, we made the mistake of not having dinner in the Hotel as the Restaurant and Menu looked so inviting. We hope that we will go back to the Turim.

Clean, Friendly and good location
We were in the hotel Turim Lisbon during a very warm August.
The reception was nice. All the friendly and helpfull receptionists spoke english.
Our room was on the top floor and not facing the street.
We had an nice balcony with a view of the castle.
The room wasn't to big but the airco kept us cool, it was clean,
had a good bed and nice bathroom.
The Lisbon airport is very close to the city so airplanes fly over the hotel but they don't fly to close and they stopped around 21 o'clock.
We enjoyed our stay there, the room was peacefull,
The hotel is close to 2 subway stations and good busroutes.
There is a shop just around the corner and a shopping centre too.
The hip areas are 20 minutes by subway and taxi's aren't to expensive.
It's a good bett when in Lisbon.
Great Hotel and staff
I recently stayed in Lisbon for 8 nights. I stayed at the Turim Hotel. I booked the hotel online, based mostly on reviews I read online. I really enjoyed my stay in Lisbon and the Turim was exactly the type of hotel I was looking for.
The hotel isn't located in the heart of the "Turist District", yet it's about 3 blocks away from the "Parque" subway station. Making it quite easy to go into the downtown core.
The area around the hotel is fairly quiet, clean and safe. A few restaurants within walking distance.
The morning breakfast was very good, always a good selection of breads, jams, cold cuts, scrambled eggs etc.
The staff was very helpful and consistant... When I mentioned that I was going to the Algarve after my stay in Lisbon, the person at the reception asked me if I wanted him to search the internet for bus time schedules. Later that evening when I returned to my hotel. There was an envelope in my room with a printout of all buses leaving for the Algarve from Lisbon on the dates I had requested.
The room was spacious and had a "happy" mood to it... In the evening while I relaxed for another day of sight seeing, I felt very comfortable and pleased to be there. The wooden floors and the furniture was not your typical..."let me out of here" hotel room.
My room had a balcony and I could see the Castle of Sao Jorge in the distance, very nice.
If you don't mind having a short subway ride to get into the more turist locations. Unless something radically changes, I think you'll enjoy this friendly, clean hotel, located in a nice area of Lisbon.
Good Value Hotel
We stayed at the Hotel Turim for two nights pre cruise in April 2006.
Staff were very friendly and we had a spacious room. Beds were reasonable and room was quiet. I especially liked the front desk staff who were most helpfull in all matters. Breakfast was adequate.
I received a better price than the websites by phoning the hotel directly.
Hotel is near the Metro system which is cheap and easy to use. If you buy a day ticket it covers trams and busses and is good vale for money.
Beware of taxi drivers from airport. We had one of the bad ones who tried to double the fare and was reluctant to use his meter. It was hidden under a towel on the passenger seat. There is fixed price taxi service desk in the airport but picking one up outside the door should be much cheaper. Check the desk price first.
A nice sleepover
Needed a nice and comfy place to stay a night with my wife a kid after a 400 km car trip before returning home.
Room was clean and very satisfying. Quiet neighbourhood and parking for my rented car.
The continental breakfast was enough and very satisfactory.
Price was OK for one night.
Good hotel in quiet neighbourhood
I recently spent a weekend in lisbon at the turim europa hotel. I bought the trip on expedia. The hotel was not listed but I had a good feeling and I was right. It's near Marques de Pombla Square, close to the metro and 100mt away from the bus stop that goes to the airport (no 44 or 45). The Hotel is really nice and very clean, the room are small with no place to sit but you've all in it. The staff at the reception is very helpful especially the lady. The breakfast was quite good but not to "big".Nearby you have some really good resturant. I would go there again, five minutes metro and you're everywhere!!
Nice cozy little place
Stayed there for two nights in Sep 2005. The hotel is very nice and clean with excellent furniture. Great location, friendly service. Highly recommend to everyone.
Great Little Hotel
We stayed at the Turim Hotel for 2 nights this past week and were very impressed with the service and cleanliness of the hotel. Our room was a large twin room with hard wood floors, cherry furniture, and large marble bathroom.
The concierge was very helpful and spoke fluent English. We arrived at 8:40 AM [just off the cruise ship] and were allowed to check into our hotel room at that time since they had clean vacant rooms available.
The concierge marked a map for us with the metro, bus lines, and told us where to buy phone cards, closest ATM, and where to buy a day pass for the public transportation system.
Breakfast buffet [included in the room rate] was very good with eggs, sausages and the ususal breads, pastries, juice, cereals, etc. Also ate dinner in the dining room one night which was very good and reasaonable. Cheese, bread, soup, fish dinner with potatoes, vegetable, bottled water, dessert and coffee for 17 Euros each.
The hotel is on a side street and very quiet. Metro system about 2-3 blocks away. Airport was about 10 minutes from hotel. [10 Euros for taxi fare with 4 pieces of luggage and having an early departure time]
The Turim is a little out of the central area but very easy to make connections to other parts of the city with the metro and bus system.
We booked through an internet site and the rate was 64 Euros for each night for room and buffet breakfast for 2. Excellent value for a 4 star hotel.
I would recommend this hotel to others and stay there again in the future.

We poured a couple glasses of wine and put some olive oil on a plate and enjoyed the view, it was after all the main reason we got the condo.

We walked up to the castle (and got ice cream on the way) stopping and seeing some great views of the city because we ...

The venue was beautiful and famous, but with long breaks between fado singers, we definitely did not get our money's ...
