Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Some rooms have large balconies
  • Numerous dining and to-go options: a restaurant, a bar, and a a coffee shop
  • Convenience mart with magazines and cigarettes
  • 24-hour room service
  • Free breakfast
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • No on-site fitness center or spa (guests can use the facilities at the nearby Hotel Real Palacio for a hefty extra fee)
  • Rooms have old tube TVs and bland decor

Bottom Line

The 153-room Hotel Real Parque is a mid-range hotel a bit outside of the bustling center of Lisbon -- but still within walking distance of several sights, as well as the metro station. There is nothing special about the rooms here; they are spacious, and some have large balconies with sweeping views of the city, but the decor is dated (picture old tube TVs, hard beds with floral runners, and tired, striped curtains). And the hotel doesn't offer much in the way of on-site amenities, aside from the dining options: There is a nice restaurant, as well as a bar, attractive coffee shop with an extensive menu, and a convenience mart with magazines and cigarettes. The hotel also offers 24-hour room service and free breakfast. Rates are cheap, but guests may consider comparing prices with the nearby sister hotel, Hotel Real Palacio, which has a bit more charm, as well as its own health club.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Sao Sebastiao da Pedreira, a short walk from the parque

On a quiet street in Sao Sebastiao de Pedreira, the Real Parque is a bit removed from the main action of Lisbon, which is centered south of the hotel near the water and Avenida da Liberdade. But it is in a quaint area with some tree-lined streets (and is on a tree-lined street itself). 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), extensive museums, and fabulous shopping -- particularly for gold, silver, and antiques.

  • 14-minute drive to Lisbon Portela Airport, or 28 minutes via public transportation
  • 5-minute walk to the Parque metro station
  • 9-minute walk to Eduardo VII Park
  • 15-minute walk to Avenida de Liberdade, Lisbon's main artery lined by high-end shops
  • 7-minute drive to Amoreiras Shopping Center, or 19 minutes via public transportation

  • 9-minute drive to Santa Justa historic elevator with great views, or 17 minutes via public transportation
  • 10-minute drive to to Barrio Alto, or 17 minutes via public transportation
  • 10-minute drive to Chiado, the main shopping district, or 11 minutes via public transportation
  • 10-minute drive to Baxia, the financial district, or 13 minutes via public transportation
  • 12-minute drive to the Museum of Ancient Art, or 21 minutes via public transportation
  • 12-minute drive to Casa dos Bicos, or 16 minutes via public transportation
  • 12-minute drive to St. George's Castle, or 29 minutes via public transportation
  • 12-minute drive to Alfama, or 21 minutes via public transportation
  • 16-minute drive to the Coach Museum, the largest museum of royal vehicles in the world, or 35 minutes via public transportation
  • 17-minute drive to Belem Tower, or 42 minutes via public transportation
  • 17-minute drive to Jeronimos Monastery, or 33 minutes via public transportation
