5 Star Comfort in Lisbon

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 20, 2012

This was my 6th trip to Lisbon and I always stay in this area (Saldanha) simply because the center of town is too noisy, full of tourist trap restaurants (avoid the south end of Rua de São José at all costs!), people trying to sell you things on the street, pickpockets, beggars and general hassle.

The 5 star Real Palacio is situated in Saldanha, about 10 minute metro ride from center of Lisbon.

Saldanha is a nice quiet residential area with plenty of restaurants to choose from and great travel connections from/to the airport and into town. The Aero Bus stops about a five minute walk away (get off at"Picoas", off the bus turn right and take the first left, the hotel is at the end of the street on the left) Other hotels I've stayed in the area include Hotel Eduardo VII (3*), Hotel Real Parque (4*)and Turim LIsboa Hotel (Rua Filipe Folque),(4*)

The nearest metro station São Sebastião on the blue line (Linha Azul) is less than a five minutes walk from the hotel. São Sebastião is also the western end-of-the-line station for the red line (Linha Vermelha) which is handy for the Oriente station at the other end of the line for Parque das Nações (cable car, aquarium, Vasco da Gama shopping centre)

When returning on the metro follow the signs to the South (sul) exit, São Sebastião has two exits, north and south. From the south exit you can also enter the supermarket in the basement of the huge department store El Corte Inglés which on top the the metro station.

Unique Quality: To operate the lifts in the hotel you need to insert your your room keycard which is of course great for added security.

The rooms are spacious enough, very clean, beds and linens are nice, lovely pillows, the bathroom is nice with a big bath (I'm 5"7 (170 cm) I could lie down in it), great water pressure (shower) and HOT water, plenty of storage space, soundproofed walls, windows open, blackout curtains, 35 TV channels (the usual suspects: BBC, CNN, all local channels, German & Italian channels, music channels)

Free broadband internet in the rooms, not wifi but you can borrow a cable from the reception (there are free wifi hotspots elsewhere in the hotel)

The breakfast selection is fantastic: loads of different breads & rolls, cakes, pastries, meats, cheeses, fruit, yogurt, hot and cold drinks, bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs, fried mushrooms, fried courgettes. They refresh all of the selection constantly so it's all nice.

All in all this hotel offers the comforts you would expect from a 5*. A great location to base yourself is Lisbon with plenty of local amenities (bars, restaurants and shops) nearby.

Nearest supermarkets: Pingo Doce: out of the hotel door turn right, go down the hill, the shop is on your right about half way down the street. El Corte Ingles: follow the instructions to go to the São Sebastião metro station (see below), down the stairs towards the metro, carry on straight for the supermarket, turn right for the metro.

Directions: São Sebastião metro station from the hotel: out of the door turn left, follow the street round the church and then turn right. Take the second on the left (Rus Carlos Testa) and the stairs down to the metro are in front of you.
