I was the advance party for a group that were visiting Lisbon, so chose this hotel to relax for a few days before the others arrived. The hotel is relatively small and very friendly - all staff (even those I was not aware I was acquainted with) address you in person by name, which is a nice touch. I was... More

Grande Real Villa Italia Hotel is located by Cascais sea coast. Interior design is elegant, although not my taste, and even if a bit formal, it is also cozy.
