Parque das Nacoes, Lisbon, Portugal

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • In Campo das Nacoes, near public transportation and a great shopping mall
  • Spacious rooms with minibars and safes
  • Great views from some rooms (others face a brick wall)
  • Decent restaurant and two nice bars
  • Tiny business center with one computer and free Internet access
  • Meeting rooms with AV equipment
  • Inexpensive street parking around the hotel

Cons

  • Some old tube TVs
  • No Wi-Fi in rooms
  • Fee for (slow) wired Internet access
  • Wear and tear in common areas

Bottom Line

The VIP Executive Art’s is a so-so pick for a short stay if you’re on a budget. It is located in Campo das Nacoes, the former site of Expo '98 (the Libson World Exposition). While it is not central, this locale is convenient for those who need to be near the airport or who don’t mind taking the metro to get to the city center. Rooms are basic but pleasant, with wood floors, cream headboards, and coral bedding and curtains; most have flat-screen TVs, but some old tube TVs still linger. The hotel caters to business travelers, and has several meeting rooms that can host conferences (including a large auditorium-style option), as well as a tiny business center, but there’s no Wi-Fi in the rooms, and wired Internet is slow. In short, it’s an adequate option, but it’s worth comparing prices at nearby hotels.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Campo das Nacoes, the former site of Expo ’98

The VIP Executive Art’s is located in a new area in Lisbon, right on the former grounds of Expo ’98 (a World's Fair site). While it is quite out of the way of tourist attractions, it is very close to the airport, and there are stores, restaurants and a casino nearby. However, what makes the location attractive is its proximity to Gare do Oriente, a major transportation hub located down the street from the property. Oriente Station offers easy access to metro, bus, trains and cabs, which puts the city center within easy reach -- it takes about 25 minutes to get to the heart of the action in central Lisbon.

  • 10-minute drive to Lisbon Portela Airport, or 16 minutes via public transportation
  • 7-minute walk to Vasco da Gama shopping mall
  • 6-minute walk to Gare do Oriente
  • 26-minute metro ride to Rossio, a main square
  • 27-minute metro ride to Chiado and Baixa
  • 27-minute metro ride to Eduardo VII Park
  • 29-minute metro ride to the Santa Justa historic elevator, with great views
  • 34-minute metro ride to Praca do Comercio, a beautiful plaza facing the river
  • 35-minute metro ride to St. George's Castle
  • 35-minute metro ride to Bairro Alto
  • 36-minute metro ride to Casa dos Bicos
  • 18-minute drive to Alfama
  • 22-minute drive to the Belem Tower
  • 23-minute drive to the National Museum of Ancient Art
  • 24-minute drive to the Jeronimos Monastery
  • 25-minute drive to the National Coach Museum, the largest museum of royal coaches in the world
