This is the sencond time I booked this hotel. My husband and I stayed there 5 nights in 2011 and 4 nigts in august 2013. The hotel is near the centre and near undergound station marques the plombal. Very good. I have to say that forniture was quite old but we didn't care. It was clean and people kind.

Horrible hotel. Probably the worse hotel I have ever stayed. Worse than hostels.  Room 406. Airconditioning didn't work. Temperature over 40 C. I went to reception to change the room and they didn't want to change it, just send somebody to fix it. But even if it seems to work air was not cold. I couldn't sleep the whole night....

Me and my wife booked several rooms for some friends coming to our wedding, the pictures look good on booking and we also decided to see it by ourselves. Everything seemed ok, until we read the trip advisor comments... So we decided to cancel it, supposedly there wasn't any cancellations fee, but the hotel charged anyway! After a few emails...

The hotel is located close to the town centre, walking distance to restauradores is about 15 minutes. The hotel is quite old fashioned and the hall is little and absolutely not comfortable. They have free internet wifi in all the common area. We had a four bed room and it was really small and not very clean. Many problems with...

POSITIVE: cheap, central location NEGATIVE: blacklisted by local organization; we were robbed!!! For a business trip to Lisbon, we had booked two nights at Hotel Excelsior. During our first night at the hotel, several men climbed the fire stairs, removed our window (locked and covered by a curtain) from its frame, then entered our room and stole everything inside (clothes,...

Situated one minute's walk away from Marques de Pombal metro and bus stops, the hotel in an ideal position. The room we stayed in was larger than we expected, with basic amenties provided (television, toiletries, towels etc.) It was clean and serviced daily. The room also had a fridge, although we had no use of it. Breakfast is of the...

As the headline says - this hotel is pretty basic. The rooms and bathrooms are clean but nothing fancy. Breakfast is a little above average, I think - but it gets a little boring after a week. The staff is nice and helpful. I would come back for a work-related stay but not for a leisure-related one. They have air-con...

We stayed at the Hotel Excelsior Lisbon in March 2007. Overall it was a typical European hotel. It's located in an ideal location: close to Avinda Liberdad, Pombal Square, Rossio Square, and Edward vii gardens. The rooms varied from hall way to hall way- some were big, while others were small. As well the elevator is very small, which ment...

Hotel Excelsior did what anyone would want a hotel to do - provided clean, decently sized rooms, with friendly/helpful staff. I recently spent the weekend there with 4 other friends and we had a triple and a double. The rooms were cleaned everyday and we were given clean towels. The staff helped alot with finding buses and metros (the Marques...
