Lisbon is a beguiling city, uniquely spread over seven hills that look over the Tegus River. Here, magnificent monasteries and charming castles sit alongside modern museums and up-to-date art, whilst a lively shopping scene and a vibrant night life complete the urban tableau. All this veined with tramways, cobbled lanes and tree-lined streets, making for a truly attractive and captivating stay that’ll soon explain why this city is fast-hitting the top of traveller’s wishlists.
Skyna Hotel Lisboa provides a contemporary base for your city explorations. You’ll find a restaurant and bar on site, so if you’ve worn yourself out meandering between monasteries, you won’t have to go far for a decent dinner. Skyna Hotel Lisboa is located within easy reach of Lisbon’s shopping, dining and cultural scene, just a short walk from Avenida da Liberdade.
Rooms here adopt a neutral décor, with retro-style patterned carpets that add a stylish sense of fun. Plush pillows sit alongside padded headboards, with crisp linens contrasting nicely with cosy throws.
Skyna Hotel Lisboa’s restaurant is located on the ground floor, with an à la carte menu offering Portuguese and Mediterranean dishes. A themed dinner takes place once a week, and it’s open for both lunch (12-3pm) and dinner (7-10:30pm). The Vícius Lounge Bar occupies a prime spot on the hotel’s sixth floor and comprises two areas – one under cover and one al fresco. The views over the city from here are wonderful and it’s open from 12pm-12am.
Skyna Hotel Lisboa is located near to two of the city’s tempting shopping centres – El Corte Inglés and Amoreiras. The airport is also within easy reach. Avenida da Liberdade is a short walk away, with its plethora of shopping, dining and cultural attractions, all set along its garden-filled 1100-metre stretch. The nearest Metro stations are Marquês de Pombal and Parque, which is a pleasant stroll across the neighbouring park.
How to Get There
First impressions were not the best. Everyone at the front desk were stood around and chatting when we arrived. No porter was there, no instructions or further informations was given aside from how to get to the room. It was all just a bit of a mess and we had to change the room as we requested a twin several times.
The room smelt terribly of the drains and the front door didn't have a lock. This was raised with the hotel but nothing was changed. The drains smell slightly improved but only when the bathroom fan was on, which was intermittent. Our complaints were not followed up.
The signage was very clear, the bar was lovely although we never used it as we were not aware of the food menu there. The restaurant was average, not everyone spoke English so there were lots of miscommunications and seemed unprofessional at times (asking for the menu and then 'forgetting')
The housekeeping seemed overwhelmed when there was a business conference on and several new people staying. Because of this, our room was only half made one night. Tv channels were varied and accommodated most. Room service was lacking slightly as the food wasn't really 4 star either (Gordon Ramsay wouldn't approve of the burger) Spots of dirt here and there in the bedroom and a little mould in the bathroom. I didn't feel like it was a 4 star experience and didn't feel entirely comfortable staying there.
We booked two rooms and specifically asked for 1 room with twin beds and 1 room with a big bed for parents and 2 children.
When we tried to check in we were told that a big group had left and therefore the rooms had not been cleaned - even though we were told the group left at 7am and we were checking in after 2pm. The lady at the front desk then proceeded to tell us that we didn’t request room types and therefore they assumed that we wanted 1 big bed in both rooms. We repeatedly stated that we did request this and the lady kept saying that it wasn’t on the booking. It wasn’t until we showed paperwork of our booking that she said “oh it seems like you did request a twin and a big bed, I have found it on the system.” No apology was given and in fact we were made to feel guilty about the fact that the hotel was so busy and that we were asking for 2 rooms next to each other that were a twin and a double.
Breakfast is significantly lacking in options especially if anyone has dietary requirements. Hotel doesn’t have a menu for dinner available for disposable, you have to come to the restaurant and read the menu as you stand in front of it.
No porter service.
Not a great hotel try elsewhere.
Not far from the city center, we found this hotel to be a friendly hoast for our Lisbon holiday. Near to one of the beautiful parks in the city, with tasty cuisine, clean, comfortable rooms, multilingual staff, Skyna Hotel is a fine choise for any vacation.
This is a good hotel if the location i not so important. But it's about 300 meters to bus. We used to take bus 758 or the tram. It's about 800 meters to the metro. The breakfast was ok. Very nice staff.
I really enjoyed my 12 night stay here in a base room with my wife. The room was well priced and came with a Queen sized bed and a spacious bedroom which are sometimes hard to come by in European cities. The heating/air conditioning system was modern and worked very well at keeping room temps ideal overnight. We picked this hotel due to the location (The Ritz is a 5min walk away). It is in a quieter residential area under 10mins walk from 2 major subway stations and 15 mins from the Campolide overland train station for day trips to Sintra! There are many great authentic Portugese retaurants the locals eat at like A Valenciana and Tasquinha do Logarto.
