Hotel Florida

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is perfectly located steps away from Avenida da Liberdade which makes it easy to just walk around the city center. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Very nice staff and hip atmosphere - I'd stay here again.

We stayed here twice, for a total of 3 nights, coming to and going from Lisbon. The hotel is clean, quiet, comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. Our room, the "SInging in the Rain" suite, had two twin beds joined to form a king, and 2 extra roll-away bads for the kids (all very comfortable) to accomodate our family of four. The Florida is located directly on the Marquis do Pombal subway stop, so getting there from the airport is a snap. This is hands down the best value I've ever had in a European hotel. I've paid 8X more per night for a "comparable" room in London and its wasn't half as good. No free WIFI here, but I'm not complaining - great, great value and location for a stay in Lisbon. HIghly recommend the Hotel Florida.

This hotel is the most convenient place to stay while visiting Lisbon as a tourist. The elevator entrance to the Metro station is a three-minute walk away. Using Metro for traveling between the airport and the hotel is more convenient than the Airport Shuttle bus. Rooms are nicely furnished, very clean, with marble floor bath. The room size is enough for a solo traveler. The hotel charges everything including wifi (10 Euro for 48 hours)

The hotel was nondescript when arriving butting turned out to be a very nice place. The staff was helpful and not intrusive. There is a nice place on the same block to get food and a market 3 blocks away to save money. Overall - nice clean place.

VERY POLITE, AND EXPERIENCED STUFF, BEST VALUE FOR MONEY, GREAT LOCATION, WILL VISTI AGAIN EFINATELY

The room I received was the smallest on the floor but more annoying was that it looked over a fetid air shaft and the air conditioning was turned off when I arrived. It took awhile for a staff member to come to the room to explain how to activate the a/c (I was unfamiliar with the remote controlling it.) Then I was advised of a nearby restaurant which was very pricey and had a basket of obviously stale bread on the table to begin with. I was glad my stay was for one night only.

We really liked the Florida; the room was larger and had nicer fixtures than most European hotels in this price range, as well as a huge, comfortable bed and nice design sense. The cinema theme was imaginative and well done. The only thing I didn't like was that wi-fi wasn't included; the charge was 5 euros per day, and my husband and I couldn't both use it to check our email - it kept logging one of us out. Really should have free wi-fi these days. Location was perfect - right by the Marques de Pombal metro stop and a taxi queue.

When we arrived to check-in, the room was not ready for us immediately so we walked around a bit and had some lunch while our bags were held for us at the hotel. When we returned, our room was ready, however, the electricity in the room didn't work. After calling down to reception and then asking someone in the hall to fix it, the situation was resolved. With the exception of the not-so-awesome service the hotel was nice. No big bells and whistles but in a good location, about a 10-15 minute walk to the city center. The bed was a little hard, but so are most European beds. Overall though, it was obvious the bathroom had been updated, which was nice, and it was quite clean and comfortable. Not a bad pick for the price, and of course, themed-hotels are always fun, but perhaps don't come here if you're "high-maintenance", it may not be what you're looking for... I would rate this 4-star hotel closer to a 3 1/2, but fun for easy-going, movie-loving people!

Upon arrival at this hotel, my husband and I were not even greeted; when we were, it was in a very unfriendly manner. The person at the front desk, was rude and unwelcoming. Was in a TOTAL state of disrepair; there was dust everywhere, the one elevator they did have was not working properly and debris from the construction was falling into the elevator car as you walked in. We were given a remodeled room which we were very satisfied with. The bathroom was clean and modern but everything around us was sub-standard, dusty and dirty. The breakfast area was nice and the food was okay. The location of this hotel is very, very good. The metro station is right in front and the general area is nice as well. Given the circumstances, I think we definitely over paid for our stay at this place.
