Small bathroom
Bathroom was very small. Shower stall doors were difficult to close. There was no soap dish in the shower. Bathroom door couldn't be fully opened because the night stand was in the way.

Worth staying again
Near Sol station. So, very con enient for getting around. If you can make it through the crowds of tourists just outside its doors! It was decorated simply but tastefully and was very clean. The desk staff were basically neither warm nor helpful, sad to say. Finding breakfast was difficult. The room size was adequate as was the bed. I'd use them again.

Thank you Hotel Excelsior
We enjoyed our short stay in hotel Excelsior . We had problem finding the hotel because we didn’t see street sign . Had to ask three people for direction. In the end of the day we saw street name on buildings rather than on the road. The room is small but efficient . Heating is good but buffet breakfast is limited compared to other hotels I’ve been . Accessible to the train. Staff are accommodating. Thank you Hotel Excelsior

Not safe for toddlers. Ok for adults.
Rooms are old and the bathroom window did not lock. Luckily it was not too cold outside. Odd shaped fixtures and raised closet floors are hazards to toddlers. Breakfast was good. Elevator is 4 people only. Baby bed was excellent.

Great stay...
Great location. Large bathroom. The furniture is dated but very comfortable with a king size bed. Very clean, maid service everyday, fresh Towels and bed linen. All staff very friendly and helpful.I was concerned after booking this hotel with all the negative reviews on several websites, but was pleasantly surprised. Very good value for money for any city break

Good location. Comfortable bed. Breakfast could be better. Poor choice on tv channels and few things needed fixing in the room

Lovely hotel and excellent location
This hotel is perfect for a city break - it is just over a mile and an easy walk to the Praca do Comércio (although it is all uphill on the way back!) and less than a mile to Rossio Square. Taxis are not expensive to save that walk back. Do venture off the main streets onto the side streets like the Rua da Portas da Santo Antao - there are lots and lots of little restaurants along the quieter parts - less touristy and without staff accosting and exhorting you to use their restaurant (& in one instance swearing violently at us when we politely declined). For a 3 star hotel it was a pleasant surprise - quiet, clean and comfortable (the pillows in particular were excellent - usually an area hotels get wrong). The only thing I would have liked to have seen was tea making facilities. The fridge in our room was too efficient for wintertime - freezing the beer, but probably perfect in the summer. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming - the desk is staffed 24 hours so our very late arrival and very early departure didn’t faze them at all. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
