Hotel Mundial Lisbon

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 16, 2014

I stayed in two rooms; one at the beginning of my trip and one at the end. So here’s my review:

Front desk: They are helpful in various degrees (depends on the person you ask) but in general they provide good service.

Room: Clean both the room and the bath. Beds varied between the two rooms; first bed was fairly comfortable but the 2nd bed was very uncomfortable.

Safe: You have to rent the room safe if you would like to use it for 2 Euros per night

TV: They only provide news channels.

Breakfast: The breakfast is very average. If breakfast is not included in the booking then skip it and eat out in a café. They had the weirdest looking scrambled eggs and the selection was very basic.

Rooftop Bar: Great views and atmosphere

Location: This hotel is located right in the middle of all the Lisbon action. You turn left and you're right downtown Lisbon. You turn right and you're at the first stop of Tram 28, guaranteeing you a seat.

Unique Quality: Book it for the Location and Rooftop bar

Directions: Near Praça do Rossio

Nice hotel in an excellent location.

Hotel Mundial is a really nice 4 star hotel right in the center of Lisbon.
Most high end hotels in lisbon tends to be in a financial district 2-3 kilometers from the center and that can be a bit annoying if you like to walk to the sights and walk home in the evening, but Hotel Mundial is right in the center by Rossio and Praca da Figueiras.
The rooms there are fine for a 4 star hotel and there are some nice common areas too and a nice downstaris bar aswell as a rooftop bar that is open when the weather is nice.
This hotel is one of the best choices in Lisbon if you want a 4 star hotel that is located right in the center.

Unique Quality: Location, location ,location.

Directions: Just around the corner from Rossio.

beware of Hotel Mundial's Cancellation policy

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 30, 2011

My husband and I were suppose to travel to Portugal in Nov. 2011, however due to a public service strike, our flight from London to Lisbon was cancelled (they were limiting air traffic control). During the trip, we were suppose to stay at the Hotel Mundial for 5 nights, however due to the cancelled flight, we had to cancel our trip. Hotel Mundial originally said that they had a zero refund policy however, after pleading with them, they refunded us for 2/5 nights. If you plan on booking this hotel, be aware of their cancellation policy and make sure you have cancellation insurance. For this reason, I would not recommend this hotel/accomodation to someone else.

This four star hotel provided nice accommodation for five days. The room with balcony was spacious, and the the staff extremely friendly. Hotel does not have fancy furniture or latest technology, however it was good enough. Good breakfast.

Only disappointment was dinner at first floor restaurant.

Hotel Mundial Rooms

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 29, 2008

The hotel has 373 rooms with aircon, mini bar, in room safe and hairdryer. They also provide a bathrobe. The rooms are comfortable, not overly big, a bit pokey, the bathroom has a bidet. The room lacked a feel of security without the additional lock on the door which was keycard to start with. No Do Not Disturb sign. The large window’s opened wide should anyone decide to climb up and get in. TV channels were limited to one English channel, Sky News or BBC new – not that uncommon I found in Portugal or Spain. You did get a couple of chockies on the bed at night. Certainly nice enough but fairly expensive I thought.

Hotel Mundial Services

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 29, 2008

There is a restaurant, coffee shop and bar along with 24 hr room service. If you are driving, they offer a complimentary car parking. Reception staff were not that friendly but not rude either, although some found them to be. The hotel underwent an extension and refurbishment in 2004 and certainly looks very modern from the outside.

This hotel is very centrally located. Just a short walk to both Praca do Rossio and Praca da Figueira. You only need to walk outside the door to get a great view of the castle on the hill. Martim Moniz Square is just across from the hotel.

Directions: At Martim Moniz Square

Nice Location but nothing more

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 11, 2007

Hotel Mundial in on Martim Moniz square. A stop of electrico 28 is there, you can walk to Rossio U-station. The location is wonderful. But...But: hotel Mundial has more than 300 rooms and it is very untypical. It a very standard 4stars-hotel, the one you could find in your home, in London or in Cairo as well. The receptionists are unpolite and not willing to help you and do not smile AT ALL. But I can believe them, they should assist more or less 600-650 people in a day. The room are basic, to be a 4-stars hotel and our room's view was on the terrible inside "roof", which needed a strong restructuring. The breakfast, if you go there after 9 o'clock, is a nightmare. You have to wait to go in and to sit down. Beverages only from the automatic machines, many things to eat but nothing really tasty. I mean: many standard things but nothing outstandingly good.

Unique Quality: only location

Directions: Rossio District.

A hotel in the heart of the city

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 7, 2006

I found this hotel to be extremely accomodating and in a great location. The staff is very helpful and multilingual (since at the hotel is where you'll need to speak in the most detail). We arrived at the hotel at 7am and had no intention of actually checking in. They sent us upstairs to have some coffee and breakfast and the room ended up being ready before we were ready to go out to explore the city at 9am. There are usually taxis waiting outside and there is a tram, metro and bus stops right there so its conveniant for getting to other parts of the city. Fortunately, it is also within walking distance of a number of things. Buffet breakfast is included and the rooms are clean and modern.

Unique Quality: The panoramic restaurant. I swore up and down that I wouldn't eat in the hotel restaurant, but it turned out to be wonderful.

Directions: Right at Praca Martim Moniz, a few blocks from the Rossio

Last year I visited Lisbon and stayed at Hotel Mundial. Close to a metro stop, close to tram 28 stop that can take you around the old part of town and its narrow streets, great breakfast, and also near Rossio, Baixo Chiado, Baixa Pombalina, Augusta Street, Santa Justa Evelator, etc... Restaurant Varanda with the panoramic view of the city and Saint George Castle. Just Great !!
This year I stayed at Mundial again, and it maintains que quality i had seen before.

Directions: Near the Rossio

We spent two nights in this very comfortable hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the accommodation was really good. We stayed in a three bedded room of ample size. There is a restaurant and a cafe, the food was good. I would be more than happy to recommend the hotel.

Breakfast overlooking the capital

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 10, 2005

I needed a hotel for a weekend and found a good rate for Mundial (80 EURO for a double room breakfast incl). It was a good choice and everything I wanted for a weekend spent strolling around the city (and not in the hotel). The rooms were clean, nice and quiet, and the location was excellent. I believe this is a tourist three-star hotel which ones might have been a first class hotel.
Within reach of most sites. There's also a lively bar in the reception area to have a night cap.

Unique Quality: Breakfast on the top floor with panorama view of the city.

Directions: 300 meters from Rossio square and railway station. See hotel webpage for location map

This is a large hotel in a very central location. Accomodations were decent and the views from the roof were great.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 10, 2005

I took this picture out of the window of our hotel Mundial. It offered us a nice view on the Barrio Alto and Restauradores area.
If you looked closer to the building in front of us, then the view was a little bit less idyllic with some worn out houses that needed desperate a repair.

In front of the hotel was this new Martim Moniz square with the nice fountains.
Excellent for an evening watching the full moon over the castle that was looking over the place.

The hotel itself was clean and breakfast was nice. We never tried dinner.
One day we went up all to the highest store where you could have a beautiful view from the terras.
The staff was friendly.
The hotel was a regular tourist hotel, didn’t had much personal touch but it was ok.
It was about 10 minutes walking from where the bus coming from the airport dropped us.
The neighbourhood we had to walk through looked more like little Africa then Portugal.
Everywhere people were trying to sell things, going from watches, to lottery tickets and even to drugs.
First I didn’t felt like this was the right neighbourhood, but I got accustomed quickly and disregarded the call for attentions of the street vendors.

Unique Quality: The roof teras was nice and the location in front of the Moritz place was excellent.
It probably will look nicer now as there were restauration works going on when we stayed there.
It has many room facilities and is also accesable for disabled persons, for which I grant them one level higher.

Directions: 8 km of the airport;
50 meters of Rosio square
close to the train station
close to the metro station

The hotel is a nice location just a few minutes from Rossio square. Many rooms have views of the Castelo de Sao Jorge, although we found our room a bit pokey. It was clean, just a bit cramped. Breakfast was ok and general service was good.

Unique Quality: Views of the Castelo de Sao Jorge from many rooms and the restaurant on the 8th floor. In a prime position for visiting Lisbon's major sights.
