The hotel has been renovated and offers comfortable rooms, good buffet breakfast and is conveniently located near public transportation, making it easy to explore the city. The Wi-Fi was pretty good as well with excellent coverage in the room, lobby and restaurant.
This combined with its affordable prices, make it a great value for budget-conscious travellers.
Why We Chose Hotel Travel Park Lisboa
In terms of accommodation, we would recommend booking your accommodation through an aggregator such as Booking.com or Agoda to get the best rates. On this occasion, we had some credit (points) from Trip.com, so we booked Hotel Travel Park Lisboa using our points and technically didn’t pay anything for our stay.
During our city breaks, we tend to sleep at the hotel, have breakfast and be out and about all day, so we weren’t after luxury accommodation or one with a lot of amenities. We chose Hotel Travel Park Lisboa, due to the following reasons:
- Good location – minutes away from a metro and tram stops making it easy to explore the city and reach from the airport
- Recently refurbished with a modern twist
- Good reviews on TripAdvisor
- Fit our budget
- Free cancellation up to 72 hours before the stay
Overall, we had a good experience. The hotel was clean, the bed was comfortable, the room was spacious, breakfast was good and we felt it was a good value for money for a 3 star hotel in central Lisbon. We share more about our experience below.
How to Get to Hotel Travel Park Lisboa
Hotel Travel Park Lisboa is conveniently located just 20 minutes on foot from Lisbon’s Baixa neighbourhood and the historical centre. Be aware that there are a lot of hills in Lisbon, so public transport is your best friend.
The Anjos metro station (green line) is just 1 minute away from the hotel and tram stop for number 28E is 5 minutes away. We arrived late at night and it took us only 30 minutes by metro to reach from Lisbon airport Humberto Delgado Airport (LIS) to the hotel.
Generally speaking we found ground transportation to be fairly unreliable and so if you do get a chance make sure you use the metro. Having said that, riding an old tram is part of the experience, so in the evenings we were using tram 28E to get from Bairro Alto or Alfama to the hotel.
Hotel address: Av. Almirante Reis, 64, Lisboa, 1150-020, Portugal
Discover Hotel Travel Park Lisboa
The reception desk is right by the main entrance and first impressions were positive – clean, modern with a nice lobby area.
The check-in experience was really smooth. We arrived after midnight and were greeted by the receptionist who provided a great customer service and explained all we needed to know about our stay.
The lobby of the hotel is actually quite nice, shiny and stylish. Just after reception, you have the lobby area with comfortable sofas and armchairs and some art pieces.
The design and style made me question if this is really a 3 start hotel as it looks much nicer than what one would have expected.
There is a also a nice lobby bar/ lobby café with a chill out area and comfortable chairs. If we weren’t on a tight schedule exploring Lisbon, we would have loved to chill out in this area and perhaps play some games.
We booked a double room for 3 nights. The room was spacious and stylish and the bed and pillows were comfortable and offered a good night sleep. During the day, the room got a lot of day light.
The room was neutral and furnished nicely and we loved the contrast of the floor and the furniture.
In addition, we had bedside tables, a desk and a chair and a flat screen TV. If we needed to do some work, then the desk would have been perfect for it. We also had a fully stocked mini bar under the desk and a safe box inside the wardrobe.
The wardrobe was spacious with enough shelf space, drawers and hangers. The wardrobe looked a bit tired, perhaps this part of the room wasn’t refurbished. There was also a full sized mirror which was handy.
The view from the bedroom wasn’t anything spectacular but definitely better than our view at Almina Inn Hotel in Istanbul where the view was towards the restaurant and there was no day light coming through.
On a side note, when we woke up to this view and the gloomy weather in Lisbon, we almost gave up on our trip to Sintra. Thankfully, after breakfast the weather looked much better, so we did our day trip to Sintra as planned and were blessed with the sunny weather out there.
The bathroom was a good size but looked only partially refurbished. There was a bathtub, large mirror, vanity mirror and towels. There was a toilet bowl as well as a bidet.
To our surprise, only shower gel and soap were provided and one shower cap as the other one was (we believe) used and hanged on the hanger. I did expect shampoo and a “top quality moisturising cream” as per the hotel’s website description. These weren’t provided.
Breakfast at Hotel Travel Park Lisboa
The breakfast at the hotel was (perhaps) better than expected for a 3 start hotel. Food was fresh and enough items to choose from to kick start your day. A variety of delicious pastries and a bread selection was also on offer..
They also had pasteis de nata which were nice; not as good as the traditional Pastéis de Belém but still crispy on the outside and with a tasty custard cream. Muesli and cereals were offered as standard.
There was the hot section with a choice of four hot items e.g. bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs and fried eggs. From the cold section, you could choose from a small selection of cheeses, salamis and vegetables.
Fruits, including bananas, kiwis, oranges, apples were also available and so were canned fruits and fruit salad on offer. Nutella, jams, yoghurts and more were also on offer and I gladly had pastries with Nutella and bananas each morning 🙂
In terms of drinks, the usual tea, coffee, water and juices were available. I also liked the lemon and mint water that was on offer.
The coffee actually was good and unlike some of the other hotels we stood at, the coffee did its job – to wake you up.
The restaurant was larger than expected and I loved the mirror wall, that created the effect of an even bigger place. The hotel also has an outside terrace which was a surprise. If the weather was warmer, we would have been having our breakfast outside.
If you are wondering which hotel to stay in Lisbon, this 3 star hotel in Lisbon, Portugal could be a good contender.
All in all, it wasn’t a bad stay and we would stay at Hotel Travel Park Lisboa again. For travellers like us, the room was a good size, fairly modern and neutrally decorated.
The hotel is conveniently located near good transport links which made it easy to travel to from the airport and to explore Lisbon. As we were on a tight schedule, having a metro station just a minute away was a great advantage.
