Halal Hotels Portugal

According to the 1991 census recorded by Instituto Nacional de Estatística (the National Statistical Institute of Portugal), there were 9,134 Muslims in Portugal, about 0.1% of the total population. The Muslim population in 2019 was approximately 65,000 people.
By Crescent Rating, Portugal is 82nd rated among most Muslim-friendly countries.
How many mosques are there in Portugal?
There is no unmodified ancient mosque left in Portugal, the best preserved example being Mértola’s modified former mosque (turned into a church in the 12th century) and a few more structures in the South of the country.
The Muslim friendly hotel means a hotel that has Islamic characteristics that can provide basic facilities that are more friendly to Muslim customers such as a Qibla direction indicator, the availability of prayer tools, the presence of halal food / list of nearby restaurants that provide halal food.

Like other tourists, Muslim travelers coming from Islamic countries have particular requirements when they choose the destination for their vacation. Among these requirements, Muslims are concerned about the availability of halal compliant foods (no pork or alcohol in food) and a clean place to pray.

 

Many international hotels in Portugal do serve halal food that is slaughtered in accordance with the teachings of Islamic Sharia and is free of any substances forbidden by Islam such as pork and alcohol.

Other Islamic countries such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Oman and Brunei continue to be popular with Muslim tourists. Among non-OIC countries, Singapore, Thailand, the UK, Japan and Taiwan remain the top five respectively, but show improved scores on the index.

Great location near the main square, sites and metro station. Modern stylish room with comfortable bed and good bathroom. Staff were very helpful. We had a room on the top floor with sloped ceilings so bit of a challenge getting round the end of the bed. I do object to halal food though and a bit strange in a cosmopolitan city like Lisbon.

Did not realise until we went for breakfast, We went to an excellent cafe a couple of minutes away the following morning. Much better value and good selection.

Rooms were clean, very well serviced each day, had good sized bathrooms and good soundproofing from street noise when the windows were closed.
Location was very central for exploring Lisbon.

Range of hot and cold foods at breakfast was fair (including chicken sausages and turkey bacon as the hotel serves only Halal food).

This hotel is amazing, I really had nice times during my stay. They prepared the room for us once the knew about our wedding anniversary occasion. The breakfast was great and halal option was a plus. They invited us for a coffee drink on arrival. Although they don’t provide coffee maker in the room, but they can serve with hot water whenever we request. Location was the best in Lisbon and everywhere is just within the walking distance. Staff were extremely friendly and cooperative, they are ready to help and assist for anything regarding the city and things to do.

I really want to extend my appreciation and warm regards to Mr Mahboob and miss Mamju for their extraordinary support during our stay. Highly recommended.

The apartment is modern and has a smart tv ,you can see the YouTube,Netflix and even the temperature .

I recommend it for the Muslims brothers,it provides only halal foods,and no alcohol at all in the hotel ,for the couples it will be perfect for them and more comfortable.

Great Location that is accessible to the attractions transport means such as Tram, metro, & train stations. Lots of shopping options around the hotel. Very helpful staff, and good halal breakfast was served. The room was very comfortable, neat & clean. I will love to stay in the same hotel in my next visit to Lisbon.

Location, location, location! (Literally) 1 min walk from the Praça do Comercio. On the famous 28 tram. Good room. Big shower room. Good breakfast (delicious fresh bread). Certified Halal (Turkey bacon for instance).

Excellent rooms and clean linen, friendly professional staff who makes you feel like at home.

Breakfast was fresh and fulfilling but needs more variety and another plus is that it’s all halal!
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

I can highly recommend staying at this hotel. Everyday they made sure our room is clean very spacious room and bathroom. Everyday we have got an AMAZING breakfast and DELICIOUS dinner with fresh juice. I don’t know guys who is your chef but take care of him/her as in whole Lisboa and Almada I haven’t eaten better than at yours restaurant. Very reasonable price and the meals were very very tasty.

Nothing to add. Thank you so much for your hospitality. You went an extra mile to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Easy and nice underground access to the Parking as well which is an important if you rent a car.

The hotel is located close to Ramalha Metro station and a 10 minute ride on the Metro takes you to the ferry at Cacilhas to cross the river Tegus and you are in Lisbon city centre in just under half an hour which was fine for us but some guests could find the location a bit too far out of the city centre especially if relying on public transport.

There are no restaurants or bars in the vicinity of the hotel and strangely this hotel does not serve alcohol. However there is a Lidl supermarket next door where you could buy wine if you wanted to.
Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean, very well furnished and had a very comfortable King size bed.

The en suite bathroom was a very good size too with a very efficient shower and an enormous bathtub which was great to relax in after a day’s sightseeing in Lisbon. It was also very quiet which we always find to be a big bonus when travelling.

The breakfast was adequate with a good selection of bread and pastries. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it if you are looking for somewhere quiet out of Lisbon and don’t mind travelling into the city centre.

Absolutely brilliant experience second time we’ve stayed here within a year. Brilliant for couples and families with young children. Wide range of breakfast options including lovely fresh Portuguese pastries and delicacies. Very comfortable stay beds are very comfortable and pillow menu also available.

We follow a strict halal diet and had brought our own cooked halal chicken from Lisbon the hotel warmed this for us and presented in a lovely room service manner with the salad and chips we had ordered. Excellent experience would definitely return.

This resort hotel in the Algarve is a relaxing stay especially for lovers of golf, spa and good food. It is a beautiful resort with great pools, golf course and fabulous dining. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed. Mine didn’t have a great view but many do overlooking the pool or golf course. This resort is near the water but not on it. However, you can get a ride over to the sister resort the Tivoli Marina and use the facilities there and the Puro-beach club.

There is such great dining at the resort including the amazing EMO which is a wine centric restaurant. The talented sommelier designs the wine menu and the chef pairs the menu around that!

There is a great spa at the resort with a nice menu of services and a beautiful relaxation pool area. I tried out a massage but regrettably didn’t have time for the relaxation room after but hopefully next time.

And as with all the Tivoli properties they offer unique experiences like our excursion with the executive chef to the local market in the nearby town of Loule where we gathered fresh ingredients and then used them to cook a great lunch together in the Victoria restaurant. This is also where the amazing breakfast buffet is served.
