Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location, within walking distance of numerous sights
  • A small, cozy bistro
  • Stylish bar with zebra print accents
  • Breakfast buffet
  • Meeting room
  • Good value for the area
  • Free Wi-Fi in public areas

Cons

  • No fitness center or spa
  • Twin rooms feature two twin beds pushed together
  • Fee for in-room Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The 60-room Hotel Lisboa is a mid-range boutique in a great location -- just off of Avenida da Liberdade and within walking distance of numerous sights. Though the lobby is empty and unimpressive, rooms are nice; they may not be particularly large or glamorous, but they feature sleek, Ikea-esque furniture, red pops of color, small modern bathrooms, and tiny mounted flat-screen TVs. There are few amenities -- and even fewer freebies -- at this hotel; there is no spa, fitness center, or pool, and Wi-Fi in the rooms comes at an additional fee. But there is a cozy bar and restaurant, and overall the hotel is a good value for the location.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Just off of lively Avenida da Liberdade

Hotel Lisboa has a great, central location for tourists. Just off of Avenida de Liberdade, the hotel is within walking distance of the Avenida metro stop and the heart of Baxia, Chiado, and Bairro Alto neighborhoods.

Avenida de Liberdade, Lisbon's main artery, is a tree-lined street packed with high-end hotels and shops. But Barrio Alto is also a bustling area in Lisbon. Popular due to its lively nightlife spots, it is also home to vintage and antique shops. The cobblestone streets are often crowded with people, as are the area's bars and restaurants. Largely spared during the earthquake, Bairro Alto has some beautiful historic monuments and sights. Like in other areas of Lisbon, visitors should be careful in Bairro Alto at night, especially on the side streets; they have a reputation for loitering drug dealers.

Nearby Alfama, a Moorish area, is a fishing town with great fado clubs. Like Bairro Alto, it can also be a bit dangerous at nights. Baxia, the financial district, attracts mainly business travelers. But it does have good shopping, particularly for gold and silver. West of Baxia, Chiado is the main shopping district.

  • 16-minute drive to Lisbon Portela Airport, or 32 minutes via public transportation
  • 1-minute walk to the Avenida de Liberdade
  • 3-minute walk to the Avenida metro stop
  • 12-minute walk to the heart of Baixa
  • 13-minute walk to Rossio, a main square
  • 16-minute walk to Barrio Alto
  • 18-minute walk to Chiado
  • 18-minute walk to the Santa Justa historic elevator, with great views
  • 21-minute walk to Praca de Comercio, a beautiful plaza facing the river, or 6 minutes via public transportation
  • 24-minute walk to Casa dos Bicos, or 8 minutes via public transportation
  • 8-minute drive to Alfama, or 14 minutes via public transportation
  • 9-mninute drive to St. George's Castle, or 21 minutes via public transportation
  • 14-minute drive to the National Museum of Ancient Art, or 22 minutes via public transportation
  • 15-minute drive to the the Coach Museum, the largest museum of royal coaches in the world, or 30 minutes via public transportation

  • 16-minute drive to the Belem Tower, or 36 minutes via public transportation
