Hotels.tv/Lisbon visited the Hotel Mundial located in the heart of Lisbon, “Baixa Pombalina”, a few steps away from “Praça da Figueira” and “Rossio” squares. It was a surprise for us to find that from both the Roof Top Bar and the Varanda de Lisboa Restaurant one can enjoy a panoramic view of the 7 hills of Lisbon, including the St. Jorge Castle (Castelo São Jorge), the Tagus River, Convento do Carmo, Praça da Figueira, to mention a few.
The lobby, at our arrival, was very animated with people coming in and going out, in groups, alone or with kids, snapping pictures and with maps in hands to, what we guess, discover one more living quarter of this historic city or take the famous Tram Nr. 28, which starts its touristic route right in front of this hotel.
This 350 room hotel, including 3 suites – the Bridal Suite, the Writer’s Suite and the D. Duarte Suite – and 5 junior suites, is decorated in a blend of warm colors and fabrics in a traditional style to comfortably accommodate the tourist that travels alone or with the family as well as the business people that decide to take advantage of the privilege location of the Hotel Mundial and one of its six conference rooms with natural light for meetings, exhibitions and social events.
The rooms are equipped with mini-bar, safe, hair dryer, bathrobes, Wireless Internet access, air-condition, radio and TV. The Hotel Mundial is mainly a non-smoking hotel but it has kept the first two floors for smokers. The rates for all of its rooms include a complete buffet breakfast, on the first floor’s restaurant, to prepare the guests for a one full day in this exciting city that is Lisbon. There are also adjoining rooms as well as rooms with balconies.
The Varanda de Lisboa Restaurant, at Hotel Mundial, offers, besides the spectacular view, a typical Portuguese cuisine menu having won the 1st prize for Portuguese Regional Dishes in 1992. Can’t wait to be invited to make a review of its menu overlooking the Castle of St. Jorge, and downtown light at night… The Hotel Mundial also has a collection of wines in its World Wine Cellar that is unique in Portugal. A showcase is present at the entrance/lobby of the Varanda de Lisboa Restaurant. One can enjoy a private guide to this cellar and tasting session with an expert sommelier. Don’t forget to mention your interest when you make your reservation.
The Roof Top Bar & Lounge of the Hotel Mundial is open to guests and non-guests every day from 18:30 to 00:00 (17:30 to 23:30 during the winter time). Here the guests can enjoy cocktails, salads, tapas and hamburgers, a stunning – almost 360º – view and live jazz on Fridays and a live DJ during the Spring and Summer months.
