Historical Traveler Reviews Zenit Lisboa Lisbon
Hôtel excellent !
Nous sommes descendus dans cet hôtel pour un week-end à Lisbonne, nous étions invités à un mariage et cet hôtel nous avait été recommandé. C'était génial, surtout vu son prix. Tout nouveau, avec une décoration moderne, une télé écran plat dans la chambre etc. On nous a accidentellement donné la chambre avec un accès handicapé donc elle était encore plus grande que les autres. La situation était bonne car l'hôtel est situé dans un quartier résidentiel, donc c'est plus calme, mais à quelques stations de métro du centre-ville. Il y a cependant pas mal de choses à faire dans le coin, comme les boutiques, les centres commerciaux etc. J'étais vraiment contente de mon séjour là-bas et je conseillerais cet hôtel à tous.
Hautement recommandé !
C'est un super hôtel au centre de Lisbonne proche du métro et des autres moyens de transports. Je n'ai payé que 98 euros par nuit ! Le petit déjeuner est assez bon. Tout dans cet hôtel est parfait, surtout à si bon marché ! Hautement recommandé !
Great Value, Convenient Location
Recently stayed at the Zenit Lisboa (Oct 5-9, 2006) and have to say that this was a really good value. The hotel is one block from the Saldanha Metro stop, which is two stops from the Marques do Pombal stop where you can transfer Metro lines or catch many of the main bus lines. My travelmate discovered that the local bus (Line 12) took us through local neighborhoods to the Feira das Ladros (the Tues/Sat flea market) in about 15 minutes, much more convenient than the conventional Metro then Tram 28 tourist route that most people take.
The hotel overall had a modern, boutique decor. The bathroom was clean, spacious, good toiletries, and even had a speaker so that you could "listen" to whatever was on your TV set while in the shower, brushing your teeth, etc.
While our room was on the smallish side, really, unless you want to spend alot of time in your room, it was perfectly workable for the two of us, who spent most of our time exploring Lisbon and its environs.
The beds were a bit on the hard side for me (my travel mate claimed that it was nice and firm), but then again I'm used to the Westin Heavenly/Sheraton Sweet Sleeper beds. But, overall it was good value.
The only thing that gave us a bit of trouble was our safe--my roommate thought that she forgot our code, but after asking the very helpful front desk staff to help us, it turns out our safe was not properly working. Not a big deal, but make sure that if you want to use your safe, that you have the valet show you (and stay with you while you try it at least once in his/her presence) to make sure it works.
We paid an average of about 90 Euros per night. Breakfast was not included, but there are at least 2-3 commercial buildings with shopping areas and food courts about 1.5 blocks away (near the Metro stop) where you can grab some pretty good food for very reasonable prices.
The Zenit seemed very much a local business traveler's hotel, rather than the bustling touristy hotels on the Avenida, or in the Rossio/Baixa area. You feel very much like you are in the everyday working part of Lisbon, with local business people and local residents.
I liked the fact that it was a little off the beaten path. If you stay at the Zenit, take the time to visit the Casa-Museo Dr. Anastacio Goncalves, located diagonally from the entrance of the Zenit (hing: it is FREE on Sundays between 10am and 2pm!) Beautiful private collection of art in a nicely restored home.
Also, try walking a few blocks down Avenida Fontes de Melo to the Picoas Metro station (one stop away) or get out at the Picoas station and walk up Av. de Melo so that you can check out the gorgeous murals at the Picoas Metro stop.
My observations of the Zenit are in comparison to our 2-day stay at the Tivoli Jardim on the front end of our trip, which was a fine hotel. However, between the two, we felt that the Zenit was a better value. I would highly recommend it.
Would return again!
Overall we found this hotel to be excellent.
Check in was a breeze.
The room itself was modern, clean and looked really smart.
There was a lack of English TV channels but who travels abroad to watch telly?
There was some noise from surrounding rooms and banging doors in the morning - not too much though.
The location was good, about 1min walk to a Metro station.
Not much in terms of eating close by the hotel. Loads of little cafes that are called resturants but difficult if you struggle with the language. If you get desperate a Mc Donalds and Pizza Hut are nearby...Otherwise you can walk a little to find something easier on the stomach.
The staff over all were friendly. The only gripe is the lack of an iron in the room. On the 1st day an iron was promptly brought to the room after requesting. When I next requested an iron I was told there were none! I explained I had already used one and was told that was an error but there is an ironing service, at a cost. A little dissapointing but certainly not enough to stop us returning as the price was excellent!
Great Hotel in the centre of Lisbon near metro and other transports.
I payed only 98 euros per night! Quite good breakfast. Everything is perfect in this Hotel especially for the small price! Highly recommended!
We stayed at this hotel for a weekend in Lisbon, we were invited to a wedding and someone suggested this hotel. It was great, especially for its price. Brand new, modern decoration, flat screen in the room etc. We also accidentally for the room with the handicap access so it was even larger than the other ones. The location is good because it is a residential area, so quieter but only a few stops from the downtown area. At the same time, there were also things to do around there, such as shops, malls etc. I was really happy we stayed there and I would recommended to anyone.
Dieses Hotel war fantastisch mit seinen modernen Zimmern und den neumodischen Einrichtungen, wie dem Flachbildschirmfernseher. Das Zimmer und Bad waren groß. Das Hotelpersonal war sehr hilfsbereit und äußerst freundlich.
Das Hotelrestaurant war ausgezeichnet, mit einem festen 3 Gängemenü für nur 12 Euro (und fünf Sterne Essen und Service). Das inbegriffene Frühstück war vom Büfett und beinhaltete Müsli, Früchte, Joghurt, Backwaren, Säfte, heiße Speisen, Toast, Kaffee, Tee etc.!!!
Der einzige Nachteil war, dass es nicht direkt im Stadtzentrum liegt, aber es gibt einen Metrostopp, der zu Fuß nur eine Minute vom Hotel entfernt ist, die Metrofahrt ist nur ein kurzer Weg zum Stadtkern und es war kein Problem, uns zu orientieren.
Das Empfangspersonal sehr hilfreich beim Geben von Wegbeschreibungen. Für den Preis (75 Euros für ein Doppelzimmer für eine Person inklusive Frühstück)
Ich kann dieses Hotel an jeden weiterempfehlen und werde sicherlich dort wieder übernachten.
This hotel was fantastic, with very modern rooms and all the mod cons, even a flatscreen TV. Both the room and the ensuite bathroom were big.
The staff at the hotel were very helpful and extremely friendly.
The restaurant in the hotel is exceptional, with a 3 course set menu for only 12 Euro (and five star quality food and service). The included breakfast was a buffet with cereal, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, juices, hot foods, toast, coffee, tea etc etc!!
Only fault is that it's not right in the city centre, however there is a metro stop only 1 min walk from the hotel and is only a short ride into the main part of the city and had no trouble finding our way around. The staff at reception were more than willing to give us directions.
For the price (75 Euros for double room for single use including breakfast) I would recommend it to anyone and definitely stay there again.

... Jim and I looked at each other and thought now what. We had paid for transport to Intercontinental Lisbon but not sure how to find the connection. We felt like celebrities rushed by photographers. Coming into lobby of airport a turn right on a ramp revealed a wall of people holding signs identifying who was suppose to find them. Adjusting to light, surroundings and sea of placards with peoples names must have left us looking like dumbest, ...

Two Aussie girls, Jo and Jo, who didn't know each other prior to the tour, both from the Central Coast, are great fun too. They have kept us amused with their stories and trying to constantly outdo each other. They are lovely. We are quickly being labelled the drinkers. I have no idea why.

... of this historic fishing town when we came across a tiny Italian restaurant with only about eight tables, of which only one was vacant. Clearly, it had our name on it. It turned out to be a real Mama and Papa restaurant, and it was great. Mary reckoned the cannelloni was the best that she'd ever tasted. Furthermore, the total bill for two entrees, two generous main courses, a side salad, a bottle of red and a coffee came to the grand total of 34 euros, about $A50. We retired ...
