Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A block from the Marques de Pombal metro stop, sightseeing buses and upscale shopping
  • Historic boutique remodeled in 2008
  • Stylish rooms with retro decor, plush beds and modern amenities
  • Wonderful The Great American Disaster restaurant attached to the hotel
  • Relaxing winter garden with comfy seating
  • 4 meeting rooms and a full-service business center
  • Concierge services at front desk

Cons

  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Fee for baby cots
  • Tiny gym with two machines and a yoga mat

Bottom Line

The Hotel Florida is a historic boutique with a cool retro vibe throughout. Rooms feature fun, quirky decor (such as framed movie posters and green, geometric prints); plush beds with crisp white linens; electric kettles; flat-screen TVs; and mini-fridges. Family rooms are great for families and groups, as they offer a little more space and a third bed. Bathrooms still have generic Best Western style (the hotel used to be owned by the international chain until it was bought by Sterling Design), but feature Saboaria Portugueza toiletries, and are generally very clean. Property highlights include a pleasant winter garden with comfy couches, a full-service business center with an area for kids to play while parents use the computers, and a small bar. The restaurant attached to the hotel is a popular spot serving up international and Portuguese cuisine.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Centrally located off Marques de Pombal metro station, near upscale shopping, the sightseeing bus stop, and Eduardo VII Park

Hotel Florida is centrally located off Avenida da Liberdade, one of the main thoroughfares in Lisbon, which offers easy access to all major attractions. The area of Marques de Pombal is known for its upscale boutiques, and is a wonderful spot for those who want to be near the city’s highlights without being in the thick of the tourist action. The Marques de Pombal metro station is a block from the hotel, as is the sightseeing bus stop. The Baixa, Chiado and Bairro Alto neighborhoods, where some of the most important tourist sites can be found, are just two stops away.
