Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Rooms have classic decor as well as flat-screen TVs and spacious bathrooms
  • Spa includes a fitness center, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, several treatment rooms, and an indoor pool
  • Elegant lobby with marble columns, gold accents, and rich curtains
  • An Italian restaurant with an outdoor terrace, and a more casual cafe that serves Portugese fare
  • Business-friendly, with numerous meeting rooms (of various sizes) and a small business center with free Internet
  • 24-hour room service

Cons

  • Fee for in-room Wi-Fi
  • Fee for access to some parts of the spa
  • Fitness center is small and dark
  • Dated room decor and small flat-screen TVs

Bottom Line

The 263-room Dom Pedro Palace is a classic, elegant hotel that caters to business travelers and couples looking for more amenities than one would find at a boutique. The dimly lit lobby makes an immediate impression upon entering the hotel; it features opulent touches such as marble columns, statues, and gilded furniture. The classic look is less opulent in the rooms, where the color scheme of reds, blues, and golds looks a bit dated. The long list of amenities includes two restaurants, several meeting rooms, a spa, trendy indoor pool, a small fitness center, and 24-hour room service. Though the hotel is not within walking distance of many attractions (and even those that are within walking distance can be a hike, since the hotel sits atop a hill), public transportation is easily accessible. Due to its location, guests can sometimes get a deal at the Palace hotel -- but pesky fees for Wi-Fi and parts of the spa make some guests feel nickel and dimed.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Campolide, near an upscale shopping center

On a busy street in Campolide, the Palace hotel is not located in one of the quaint, historic neighborhoods of Lisbon. It is nonetheless attractive, with some tree-lined streets, and sits on the same street as several other high-end hotels, such as the Four Seasons. An upscale shopping center and a park are within walking distance (although, with the traffic, guests may prefer to drive). But many sights are easily accessible (and not far away) via public transportation.

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is a beautiful, colorful city overlooking the Atlantic. Like Rome and San Francisco, Lisbon is a city built on seven hills; but it has an Athens-like vibe with white-washed, red-roofed buildings, a fishing community, and laid-back people. Though many buildings were destroyed in the Great Earthquake of 1755, Lisbon still has a rich history (including historic buildings and cobblestone streets).

Originally referred to as the "eighth wonder of the world," Lisbon was a major importer of exotic goods from Europe and Asia. But nowadays, Lisbon can be overlooked due to the popularity of the quaint, seaside beach towns nearby. But those who love the city can tell visitors the many things they miss when skipping over Lisbon; it is a city of iconic historic buildings (such as St. George's Castle), numerous museums, and fabulous shopping -- particularly for gold, silver, and antiques.
