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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
We really liked the location of this hotel. The service was good, the breakfast was better than some others we have had. The food in the 8th floor restaurant was excellent.
Unique Quality: The views from the 8th floor restaurant were great, over the Baixa and up to the castle.
Directions: Rossio Area - great central location, close to buses, trams and metro.
Rossio Station is closed. We will arrive at Entrecampos station from Albufeira. How can we get to Mundial Hotel?
According to the Metro de Lisboa website, the Rossio METRO station and the yellow line have resumed normal operations as from 23rd November.
This means you can take the Metro yellow line two stops from Entrecampos to Campo Grande (trains in direction Odivelas) and change there to the green line to Rossio Metro (trains in direction Cais do Sodre) which is very close to that hotel.
Or take a taxi!
Yes the Rossio main-line station was rumoured to be re-opening this month but nothing seems to have come of it.
Hope that helps.
if you prefer surface traveling you can take one of the (several) bus lines connecting Entrecampos with Rossio and see the main streets that you pass by (exclude this option if you are coming at a rush hour -8-10 am and 5-7:30 pm)
