Turim Av Liberdade Hotel Lisbon Reviews
New hotel, fabulous service, great design - no internet :( Nov 01, 2011
I had to go to Lisbon recently at the last minute for business. I found this hotel for £62.00 per night which was an absolute bargain especially when my budget for corporate travel is £120.00 per night. I read the reviews and all said that the reason this hotel was so cheap was basically because it had only been opened this past spring.
On Arrival the staff was friendly and check in was prompt. I am very funny about hotel rooms and this was great. I lucked out and got a room with a view!!! I actually had my own balcony :) I stayed on the 7th floor had a corner room and my generous balcony gave me incredible views overlooking the city. Sunrise was amazing.
A pet peeve that I have regarding European hotels is that we never seem to have irons in rooms. I often get told I have to use the laundry room or I get directed some dingy little 'ironing room' so I am always pleasantly surprised when they deliver any iron quickly (I know it’s the little things). The room is small but not as small as HUDSON NYC (yes I will call you out every time!). However the background music, bedding, extensive TV selection and of course all make up for it. The bathroom only had a shower, it’s small but like the rest of the room modern (non minimalist) stylish and comfortable.
I have only two negative things to say about this hotel - Wifi in rooms was not working! NIGHTMARE, staff tried to blame it on my computer *side eye* but the same thing happened to my colleague in her room on the 8th floor (no balcony). Needless to say I was NOT impressed.
Also the bar in the lobby only takes cash - which I find strange as two steps away at the front desk they take cards. Other than that for business this hotel is great.
I don't know how long it will remain cheaply priced but its a bargain for now!
Having said that I'm returning to Lisbon next week and we've decided to stay downtown instead so I'll post a review about that after
