Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Quiet location, but still within walking distance of livelier areas
  • Spacious rooms with small flat-screen TVs and work desks
  • A small fitness center, with a punching bag, weights, and only two cardio machines
  • In-room massages are available
  • Free breakfast buffet

Cons

  • No spa or full restaurant (but there is a coffee shop)
  • Twin rooms feature two twin beds pushed together (typical in Lisbon)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Not in the most central part of the city

Bottom Line

The 100-room Turim Europa is a reliable mid-range chain hotel in Lisbon. Though it is not in the located in the most central part of the city, it's within walking distance of bustling Avenida da Liberdade, as well as a park and several restaurants. Some even prefer this hotel's quieter location. The rooms have contemporary decor (striped curtains, small flat-screen TVs, IKEA-esque furniture) but it's a bit bland; however, unlike many similar hotels in Lisbon, the Turim Europa does have a small fitness center with two cardio machines and weights. The hotel lacks a full restaurant and a full spa (in-room massages are available), and Wi-Fi comes at an additional fee, but a free daily breakfast buffet adds value to this simple, but solid, hotel.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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

On a quiet cobblestone street in Sao Sebastiao de Pedreira, the Turim Europa 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 tree-lined streets and several restaurants. 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.
