The HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS LISBON-PLAZA SALDANHA hotel is a nice 3-star hotel and is situated very convenient near the Saldanha Place (and the respective Saldanha Metro Station-Red Line), near the center of the old city and about 10 stops away from the airport (by metro-Red Line). The room was relatively spacious, the cleaning also very good and the service of personnel excellent. The breakfast was offered free and had satisfactory choices. I liked my stay at the hotel and I will stay again, if the opportunity arises, because the location, cleanliness and service was excellent, while comfort and value were very good.

I was nicely surprised to find hotel Holiday Inn express Saldhana in Lisbon so new and so clean. The rooms still smell like new and are daily thoroughly cleaned by very a friendly and hard working cleaning team,  the bathroom is also very clean and spacious, with a very good shower. The matrass and pillows are also very comfortabel. AND the most important subject of my review is the front desk staff. What an incredible team of very friendly, polite and professional young people. When I arrived to the hotel, I was warmly welcomed by Marianna, she did her best to accomodate me and to find the best room solution for me so I can feel comfortable staying in the hotel for 2 weeks. And she is always ready to help and to listen. I also really would like to thank Filipe for his support and patience, Arthur for always telling me that if I need any help, they are there to help me. Also thank you so much to amazing Ana, Rafael, Pedro for their fantastic friendliness and helpfulness in the times I needed it because of my health issues. What a professional staff, nothing is too much for them (sorry if I forgot someone)... Every morning waking up with a very good breakfast, big variety of choices, everything fresh and nicely presented and clean. A big thank you to the breakfast staff to work hard and keep everything covid safe and very clean.

The staff is absolutely rude. Many suspicious guys get in there which makes you feel insecure, there is no security. Someone can freely enter your room, and they do not take responsibility for anything. The food is terrible too. This is a hotel that must be avoided at all costs. Horror.
