    Historical Traveler Reviews VIP Executive Suites Eden Lisbon

    Great room and value!!!!

    from

    The best room that we could have asked for at this prince range, it is impossbile to find a room like this for this price in Paris or London. It was practically a 1bdr. apartment. The hotel is doors down from the train station, right across from the bus stops and a 10min walk to the Electrico. I stayed here for 5 nights, the suite was huge for Eroupe standards (full sized tiled bathroom +kitchenette:dishwasher, fridge, toaster, cooking range, microwave, utensils and glassware!) Kitchen is very nice to have when the stay is long! This hotel was great value. The room was relatively quiet and clean (but not spotless: the bathroom floors were not cleaned everyday and there were some crusty stains on the blankets and carpet-but sheets and towels were very clean). The staff all spoke english.

    HOTEL BURGLARY!!!

    from

    I stayed at the VIP Eden in late August and had a horrible expericence that prompted me to become a member of this site just to warn others. On the third day of my stay, my hotel room was burglarized in the afternoon while my friend and I were out sightseeing. We returned to the hotel at around 7:30pm to find our clothes all over the floor, my luggage slashed open (because it had been locked) and my friend's luggage missing altogether. The room was locked when we got back and did not show any signs of forced entry. I called the front desk immediately, the woman sounded sympathetic but said there was nothing she could do and there was no security guard I could talk to. She said the hotel can check the key card lock and see who entered the room at what time but not until the next day and recommened we file a report with the police.

    Luckily, most of our valuable possesions were with us at the time of robbery like passports, digital cameras, etc.. Some cash, a gameboy, few articles of clothing and some other odds and ends were taken in additon to the missing luggage. The thieves mysteriously left behind a few items that did not belong to us like a Dutch magazine and phone number written on a piece of paper. I told the front desk we'd be checking out after we returned from the police which was located just two doors down from the hotel.

    Even though we didn't have to wait long, it took a while to file the report. When we told the police officer about the strange "clues" left in the room, he said that thieves do that on purpose to confuse people and it sounded like they were experienced.

    Ok, here's the best part. We return from the police and ask for garbage bags to pack our stuff up in. By now it's 10pm and we're at the front desk checking out, with several garbage bags in tow. The woman behind the desk wants to charge me for that night because we're checking out after 6pm! I couldn't believe it. She suggested we stay in another room and check out in the morning. There was just no way I felt safe there. We got into it and I reiterated how we were just robbed through no fault of our own at this hotel with no security. At one point in our argument, she actually said (referring to thieves) "well that's what they do!" Really? Thanks for the fyi. The problem is not yet resolved. My credit card company is disputing the third night charge on my behalf since this woman claimed to not have the authority to credit me.

    Anyway, the bottom line is that I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. As careful as I was about everything I'd heard about crime in Lisbon, you just can't anticipate something like this. If you can afford it, spend the extra money to get a better hotel, or choose somewhere else.

    VIP Eden Aparthotel - Lisbon - what a great gem in the heart of Lisbon.

    from

    Great gem in the heart of Lisbon. More than sadequete kitchen, good batroom and very good lounge/dining space

    Highly recommend - will be back

    Quite pleased with location and rate

    from

    I stayed at this hotel in February 2004. The staff was excellent and they upgraded me to a one bedroom apartment. It was incredibly great in terms of location to visit Lisbon and I had a nice view over the city (although the windows are small). Having a kitchen was excellent. The rooms are pretty utilitarian otherwise, but given the wonderful location and the gracious staff and the space with a kitchen, it is an extremely comfortable place to stay on a visit to Lisbon.

    A great value in a super location

    from

    My wife and I made reservations through Hotelclub.com for 2 weekend nights at the VIP Eden in Lisbon for May 22 and 23, 2004. The cost was 89 euros per night. This hotel is pretty new, a recently remodeled theater. We read here that the 9th floor rooms had balconies but none were available, so our room was on the 3rd floor which gave us a view over the tropical rooftop garden that fronts onto the plaza and street.

    The location was excellent, easy walking distance to the trams and subways, plus many excellent restaurants are located nearby. The Baixa is a 5 minute walk and has millions of outdoor cafes and restaurants as well. Even though the room was on a busy street the big picture windows were double paned and we heard no street noise. They also had cool electric blackout shades on it. I've read here that the rooftop pool was a green slime pit but they've completely cleaned it and it was sparkling, with lots of users swimming and sunbathing there. The room had a great tiny kitchen with everything we needed to make our breakfasts. The bath was clean with shower and bath. Our double bed was actually two singles pushed together. The staff spoke very good English and was very helpful. If you're driving a car, you'll have to pull onto the sidewalk to load in your luggage, though, and you're on your own for parking. Overall this was an outstanding value and we were very happy with our choice.

    Well-equipped rooms in central location

    from

    This hotel looks very grand from the outside but more modest inside.

    The lobby is small, there is no internet service, and unless you are on the 9th floor, you don't get much of a view.

    The rooms contain tv, radio and CD player, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, iron, vacuum cleaner, plates and glasses. Also assorted tables and chairs.

    It's very central, and you can walk to the castle, Gracia monastery, Barrio Alto, and Baixa areas in a matter of minutes. Rossio station is next door and the Restauradores metro stop is just in front of the hotel. The taxi fare from the airport was 8 euros.

    The terrace on the 10th floor was in a terrible mess and very dangerous. The view is rgeat, but walk around there in the evening and you may end up falling off the roof. The tiny pool was also a disgrace.

    Full of blackish-green water.

    Breakfast was included. We paid about 60 pounds or 85 euros for a double room. The breakfast area is a squeeze, as there are only about 8 tables and if everybody arrives at once, there will be a long queue.

    The food was adequate and the service very friendly.

    Perfect Location

    from

    This hotel is a great stay at a very reasonable price. My room was very roomy and very clean. Staff is very helpful and most speak very good english. The view from the terrace gives you a taste of the hustle and bustle of one of Lisbon's busiest streets while still having a clear view of the Castelo de Sao Jorge. Lots of great restaurants just across the stret including one of the best hole-in-the-wall ginginha spots "Eduardinho". As well, the tourism office is right next door. As for the breakfast, it's convenient, but at 5 euros I'd hit one of the little cafes in the baixa area like the artsy "A Brasileira" for a little more variety and patio ambience.

    A real gem in Lisboa

    from

    We were introduced to the VIP Eden by our Lisbon guide. What a gem! We had a studio which had a double bed, kitchen table with two chairs, and upholstered chair all in one room. There was a small kitchen area with stove, refrigerator and sink. The room had a full bathroom including tub. Since we were on the 9th floor we also had a balcony with a table and a couple of rosin chairs as this is the only floor where the rooms have balconies.

    The building is ultra-modern. The front desk staff spoke English. Be aware that the hotel does not accept travellers checks even Euro travellers checks. The room ran 79 Euros a night. There is a 5 Euro charge for a very nice breakfast which is served off the patio on the top floor.

    The Praca Dos Restauradores, the street on which the hotel is located, is a main thoroughfare. It has a center green area lined with trees and several outdoor cafes. There are many restaurant choices in close proximity to the hotel including the Hard Rock Cafe which is located directly across the boulevard.

    City of Seven Hills - Chiado & Bairro Alto

    A travel blog entry by modernnomad67 on May 27, 2015

    The neighborhoods in the hills and valleys just west of Lisbon's historic center are the heart of the city where narrow streets on steep hills are lined with small restaurants, hotels, and bars. Interspersed through Chiado and the Biarro Alto are some busy squares fronted by churches, stores, and a few museums.

    Among those are the Convento do Carmo, the skeletal remains of a monastery and church that was destroyed in the 1755 ...

    My laundry is drying on the line outside our balcony window that overlooks the sign for Cruz de Santa Helena, a narrow cobblestone street that winds its way up, up, up towards the Panteo Nacionale in Alfama District, Lisboa.   Handwashed in the bathroom sink with two squares of travel laundry soap, which resembles a packet of Listerine breathe strips. My Under Armour shirt and Smartwool socks seem a bit out of place amongst the intimates hung by ...

    ... away. Really nice little place with good food, the Mackerel Tartare was especially good. After that we headed to a rooftop bar above a parking garage one of Sonja’s friends have told her of and had some drinks before realising how late it was and that we both had flights in the morning. Lisbon was a really nice city and one day really wasn’t enough but it was a brilliant way to finish up what’s been a great ...

    ... and he could speak really well. That’s another thing I’ve notices, there are a lot of people from England in Lisboa. It’s so cool to hear them talk English because they have the fancy accents. After dinner we found a mini mart to buy water for the night and a cheap store to buy some necessities and headed back to the hostel because we’re lame, but mostly jet lagged and tired.

    Oh yeah! We met our roommate, ...

    Karliana and I slept like babies. And when I say that, I only mean to say that we slept incredibly soundly and without any fuss. So now that I am thinking about it, we did not sleep like babies at all - but you know what I mean. We strolled into our hostel's breakfast room to reap the benefits of our included meal and took advantage of it. The two of us opted against putting cereal in our pockets as a snack for later and headed out into the ...
