Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Some rooms feature spacious balconies
  • Nice on-site restaurant
  • Lobby bar and an outdoor lounge
  • Meeting rooms and numerous common spaces for business travelers
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel

Cons

  • No fitness center or spa
  • Twin rooms feature two twin beds pushed together
  • Bland room decor
  • Balconies have tacky astro turf

Bottom Line

The 192-room HF Lisboa, right next to its smaller sister hotel HF Garden, is a mid-range hotel in a not-quite-central but nonetheless convenient location. Partially overlooking the Eduardo VII Parque, this HF features a a nice on-site restaurant, a lobby bar, an outdoor lounge, and several meeting rooms. But otherwise, there are few on-site amenities. Rooms are clean and feature free Wi-Fi, and some even have their own private balconies, but the decor is bland. And twin rooms have just two twin beds pushed together. Though this HF can sometimes offer a good value, visitors should compare prices with the next door HF Garden, which does not have a restaurant but has more attractive rooms.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On a busy street overlooking the park

This hotel overlooks the attractive Eduardo VII Park. Though it doesn't have the most central location, it is within walking distance of several sights and neighborhoods. The beginning of Avenida da Liberdade is just a short walk away, and an upscale shopping center and a park are within walking distance. Many other 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), extensive museums, and fabulous shopping -- particularly for gold, silver, and antiques.
