At the Vila Gale Opera, which is a springboard for tourism in Lisbon, you can feel the music in the air. At the entrance, on the right-hand side, there is a panel with the opening verses of the Traviata to welcome you. Its decor in black and beige and, the use of beach wood and the design of its furniture all combine to rivet you and to create a light, contemporary ambience at this hotel in Lisbon. Having been renovated in July 2002 following the designs of ineluctable Portuguese architect Manuel Salgado, Vila Gale Opera in Lisbon stands right by the Tagus River.
Its proximity to the major tourism attractions of Lisbon makes it even more desirable. This hotel in Lisbon adjoins Lisbon’s Congress Centre and the lively nightlife of Lisbon’s Docas area. Above the Vila Gale Opera, you can enjoy Lisbon’s graceful Bridge over the Tagus River, a hallmark of tourism in Lisbon. It’s less than 10 minutes to downtown Lisbon and its Chiado shopping district, being one of the most talked about and historical tourism areas of Lisbon.
It’s a great opportunity for shopping, lounging at some of Lisbon’s quaint old cafes, or visiting some of the most famous Lisbon theatres and show houses. Featuring 259 rooms, the hotel’s all you need, whether you’re travelling on business or for pleasure. The Vila Gale Opera is fully equipped for hosting corporate meetings and banquets, and dinning at its Falstaff Restaurant is an absolute must.

With time to rest in mind, Vila Gale Opera invites you to enjoy a number of treatments, massages, and the heated indoor pool, at the Health Club. It is a wonderful set of qualities that combine to keep this Opera always on, in the city of Lisbon.

Located in Lisbon, Hotel Vila Gale Opera is on the riverwalk and close to Lisboa Congress Centre, Castle of Sao Jorge, and 25th of April Bridge. Nearby points of interest also include Jeronimos Monastery and Cristo Rei. Hotel Vila Gale Opera's restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A bar/lounge is open for drinks. Room service is available 24 hours a day. The hotel serves a complimentary buffet breakfast each morning in the restaurant. Recreational amenities include an indoor pool, a health club, a spa tub, a sauna, and a fitness facility.
Whilst I appreciate our voucher stated room only, I see that you can book with breakfast at a cheaper price. I've just looked at a new booking for a twin room. I have copied your hotel description. No where does it state that the Recreational facilities are at an extra charge ... why not?
Disappointed on our booking of this hotel due to your description, we are not alone in feeling you information should state that certain things carry an extra charge.
Susan from Epsom
The hotel is very god value. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are very clean. The restaurant offers a fantastic breakfast and a value for money buffet in the evenings. The staff are friendly and polite.
The hotel is a conference venue and there were several conferences going on during our stay. Unfortunately, there was an event going on in the restaurant on one of the evenings and whilst we were still able to use the restaurant, it felt like we were part of the conference. It would have been nice to have some warning about the PA system and presentation slides being used.
On the whole though, a great hotel - transport right outside the door to the old town and to more outlaying places like Cascais and Sintra. Being under the bridge you would imagine that the noise would be a problem but it really isn't. On the whole a very good hotel - no major complaints.
“ Top Tip: Cascais is fantastic. It's a little fishing port close by and is really pretty with lots of lovely little boutique shops and cafes/restaurants. Beach is also sandy and very clean. A lovely place to spend the day which cost only 4.5Euros return on the train.

“ First room we were in had a door to an adjoining room, walls were paper thin and next to a crying baby! Second room was much better. I liked the location and proximity to nice bars along riverside and pleasant walking to Belem, a must see. Breakfast was fine, plenty of it and variable choice, just not gorgeous. Staff were helpful and rooms were clean. They offered a free wine tasting one eve which I thought was a very nice touch. Did not visist the pool as thought too expensive. This is a shame as would have used it a lot if it had been included. Overall very nice no complaints (once we'd moved!)
