We arrived there with uncertain expectations. We were however pleasantly surprised the way we were welcomed at the hotel by the friendly staff. We stayed there for 9 nights and felt very much at home. Estoril and the neighboring Cascais are beautiful pleasant towns and certainly a nice area to be in if your visiting Lisbon and surrounding cities. The train station is across from the hotel.
Great views, right next to the station for trains to Lisbon and Cascais, although the walk along the promenade to Cascais is a daily pleasure.
Staff friendly, breakfast gives you plenty to choose from.

When we first arrived we were given a room with a double bed which looked very nice, but the view from the balcony was over some bins, a road and a building site. We asked to change rooms, and the staff was very helpful and let us change to one that faced the inner courtyard with the pool. Unfortunately this room didn't have a double bed, but two twin beds that looked more like sofas, and were quite hard and uncomfortable. We were still pleased with our new room, and there was plenty of space for us and our baby.
The kitchenette was very basic, but we managed to cook some simple meals there.
The hotel is located in a quiet neighbourhood around 15 minutes walk from Monte Estoril station. From there you can take the train to Lisbon (45 min) or Cascais (5 min), or you can walk along the lovely promenade to Cascais (20-30 min), as we did most days.
We were travelling with a 1,5 year old, and he really enjoyed exploring the large hotel and there was a slightly dated play room which kept him entertained for a little bit.
The smart and modern hotel is elegantly themed throughout in white and cream – wonderfully relaxing. Our suite was huge and comfortable, with all the amenities we needed other than a kettle.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. And the location perfect for an easy walk to cafés, beach, train station and more. The pool area was charming, with fresh free towels every day.
Considering how excellent everything else was their wifi came as a surprise. The days are gone when good hotels charge for this basic service. But here it came at a price – though modest. And having paid we did not expect to be constantly frustrated by its poor performance.
That apart, we loved the hotel and our time there.
The popular seaside resort of Estoril was the haunt of exiled European aristocracy in the 19th century, and a wartime refuge from 1939-45. Grand mansions and villas are set in the verdant hills backing the town, and a gothic-style castle overlooks the main beach. Estoril Casino is Europe’s largest and stages top shows. Cascais is just three kilometres and Lisbon 26 kilometres away, and several championship golf courses are nearby.
