Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Classic, spacious rooms
  • All rooms have kitchenettes with stovetops, wet bars, and mini-fridges
  • Restaurant serving three meals a day
  • Small, sunny terrace with seating and ivy-covered walls
  • Discounted passes to the nearby gym
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • No on-site spa or fitness center
  • Restaurant is closed on Sundays
  • Rooms have small tube TVs
  • Twin Rooms have two twin beds pushed together
  • North of the city center

Bottom Line

The Turim Lisboa is a budget-friendly option in Sao Sebastiao da Pedreira, a quiet, residential area just north of Lisbon's main action. Everything about the hotel is simple, but quaint. The spacious rooms are plainly decorated, featuring red-and-gold comforters and matching curtains, small tube TVs, and simple wooden furniture; all rooms have kitchenettes with stovetops, wet bars, and mini-fridges. Twin Rooms have two twin beds pushed together (common in mid-range hotels in Lisbon), and some rooms have one twin bed and a double bed close together, which may appeal to families with small children. There are few on-site amenities (no fitness center), but there is an on-site restaurant serving a standard breakfast buffet as well as lunch and dinner (note that it is closed on Sundays). The Turim Lisboa may not stand out from other mid-range hotels in the area, but it does offer a good value with discounted gym passes and free Wi-Fi.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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

On a quiet street in Sao Sebastiao de Pedreira, the Turim Lisboa 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 (itself being on one) 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.
