    Location 7.83 /10

    The Excelsior hotel is located in a small street parallel with Liberdade Avenue, not far from Edward VII Park and Marques de Pombal Square. Lisbon's city centre is a 15-20 minute walk away.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The 81 bedrooms have all been redecorated in a more modern style. You will now find parquet flooring, new curtains and bedspreads, and on the walls, a prominent shade of beige which makes the rooms a lot brighter. Despite this, the decoration remains very sober and classic, without much originality. The rooms are equipped with a television, a telephone and air-conditioning. As for the bathrooms, they are equipped with a bathtub, a hair-dryer and hospitality products. They are also decorated in a classic style with beige tiles.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The Excelsior hotel opened its doors 35 years ago and is remarkable for its outdated decor. However, when we visited at the end of 2008, the hotel's interior decoration was being changed and modernised. Not far from the reception desk, you will find a bar and a small Internet area. A television has also been set up near to the bar.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    The hotel restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is served as a buffet and Indian cuisine is served for lunch and dinner. The decoration should have changed drastically since we visited in 2008. The tables and chairs should also be more modern

      • Value for money 7.09
      • Location 7.73

      The Britania hotel is located in a quieter street than the Avenida da Liberdade and really is worth bearing in mind when planning a trip to the city. Its outdated and Art Deco-style decor make this a very charming hotel, with pleasantly decorated rooms and a small lounge area in the lobby where you can relax and read.
