Those wanting an overnight stay very close to Lisbon Airport, or to hold an event there, can check out the impressive new Tryp Lisboa Aeroporto Hotel, where we enjoyed a one-night stay earlier this year.
This is a bright and modern place, an easy 200 metre walk from Terminal One and around 3-4 kilometres from Lisbon city centre, and offers 167 contemporary and comfortable bedrooms with full bathrooms, most of which include a very welcome bathtub to stretch out and relax in. There is a 32 inch LCD TV, individually controlled heating/air conditioning, a safe, desk area, minibar and free WiFi internet. Facilities for guests wanting to make their own tea and coffee (we did) are supplied on request. There is also a complimentary transfer service for guests departing from the temporary Terminal Two (we did) a short drive away.
Event facilities at the Tryp are extensive and flexible with more than 20 spaces and combinations for 6 to 350 delegates theatre-style, and for a total of 1,000+ in the 1,500+ square metres of space. Nearly all the rooms enjoy natural light, ceilings are 3.2 metres and all have WiFi internet. Other facilities are an outdoor pool, and a Wellness Centre is currently being developed with an indoor pool, sauna, hydromassage, Turkish Bath, six massage booths and a Relax area for even more relaxation before hitting the airport.
Breakfast is a generous and welcome buffet.
