To be honest, after reading the reviews for this place I was a bit scared. However, the hotel, if the rooms are cheap (I booked with airmiles) it's not bad at all. Yes the room is dated, and the mattress is the plasticy sort you find in a hospital. But it was clean, water is hot, the towels were changed...

I was visiting Lisbon with my family and we've booked a 4 beds room. It was nice and clean. Unfortunately, mold spots are present on the ceiling on the bathroom, but I know that humidity is really high in the town so I can understand. Not pleaseant but not a real issue. Hot water is working well. Heating works great...

Very good location. Close to the Marquis de Pombal metro station. All city central part in foot distance. Upper floors have a good view. My room had a view of the office building. Breakfast in hotel is good. Sorry, it's no delicious yogurt, salmon, etc. Just good breakfast. Furniture in the rooms wants to be updated, bathroom furniture, tiles wants...

Placed nearby main Lisbon streets to start visiting, Excelsior gave us a good overall service along with kindful staff attention. We could park our car in one of some reserved places for it, and taste a good breakfast in the average equipped buffet. Bedroom included all the necessary amenities too, so we'd return to Excelsior if (as in the case)...

Imagine when i arrived from the airport in the evening to check-in to hear from the receptionist, that they canceled my booking. Their excuse was that my credit card got cancelled. However I used it an hour later at an other hotel and it worked perfectly! What made me suspicious that they said, sorry no other rooms are free; so...

The hotel is located in a central location which is great. Breakfast is very poor and no vegetables at all. Comfortable beds and large rooms. The staff was mostly fine except for one receptionist. value for money it's good.

Excellent location but everything else very very poor. No comfort, badly needs refurbishing, noisy, air con but no remote controls to put it on. Room service advertised but no room service available. Breakfast ---- no fresh fruit, yougurt, no choice of fruit juice and no fresh milk . All these I would expect at a 3* hotel

Very well located (near the subway station at Marquês de Pombal), clean and comfortable rooms, and great service. The only problem is the breakfast that does not offer a wide variety, only coffee, milk, bread, cheese, ham, egg, and an artificial juice.
