Murder in the Hotel Lisbon 100% Achievement

They Are Real
This achievement can be earned early on.

First head out of your office and go to Hotel Street (keep going to the right).

As your walking down hotel street you will see a gate that can be interacted with. Go ahead and walk through it.Here you will find Nerd Monkey (the developers) and all the way to the right you will see a notice board. Interact with it, go through some dialogue and then you will have 2 options: donate or don’t donate.

Choose the first option (Donate) and the game will close and you will earn the achievement!


This achievement is pretty straightforward.
There is a shower all the way to the right in your bedroom (which is in your office). Just take a shower by interacting with it about 10 times or so. I haven’t confirmed if this is 10 total or in a row (it’s really easy to do in one sitting).



The bug can be found in the park on Park Street. Just go all the way to the right, and near the end their will be a bench.
Look closely at the bottom left of the bench and you should see a little black bug (almost looks a an 8 bit ant) and just interact with it.

Living legend! and Totally lame!

Living legend!- Get a combo bigger than 30 in Stand Up Clown mini-game

Totally lame! Get 15.000 points in the Stand Up Clown mini-game.

The mini-game can be found in the main menu and is unlocked early on in the main quest. (After using clown bot to interview the manager of Bar Gaf)

The achievements aren’t too hard to get. Clown Bot will set up a corny joke and you have to choose the punchline. Some right answers are more obvious than others. After successfully telling a few jokes you will have to catch the flowers the audience throws at you for more points.

If you get a joke wrong the audience throws things at you that will take away your points. The audience leaves every time you tell a bad joke, until you are eventually left alone on stage, then the game ends.

Edit: I really underestimated these ones. You will have to choose punchlines faster and faster as you tell more jokes and some can be tricky.

Here is a list of some of the jokes and their punchlines:

Why do bees have sticky hair? They use honeycombs

How do inmates talk to each other? Cell Phones

What’s a scarecrow’s favorite food? Strawberries

Where do geologists go for entertainment? Rock clubs

What sea creature cleans the sea? Mermaids

He let her know who the boss was. He looked her in the eye and said “You’re the boss”

What happens when the Queen burps? She issues a royal pardon.

What is that shiny thing in the grass? an ant with bracers

what is that green dot in the corner? a pea in dentention



Just play the game at 3 am. You can change the date and time settings on your computer to get this done quickly.

Major Fado fan!

Fado can be found in Noitadas, which is the restaurant right next to Bar Gaf on Double H Street

Simply walk into the restaurant and talk to the woman with the blue shawl around her and a red flower in her hair. She will then begin performing and you just have to wait around and enjoy the music until the achievement pops.


Daniela’s Photos!

To get this achievement you need to go to room 404 at Hotel Lisbon. (4th floor on the right.)

When you enter Clown Bot will get scared and you will have to go right all the way until you see a big screen of static.

Here, Clown Bot will freak out and tell you not to touch it. Go ahead and touch it, and you will enter a secret place and watch some dialogue between Bot and Case. During this conversation Bot will admit that he took Daniela’s Bikini photos while he was cleaning. You should get the achievement after this.


Jehovah Witness!

To get this achievement you will have to interact with every door at Hotel Lisbon. There are 6 floors and 4 doors on each (24 doors in total). You should get the achievement after you have knocked on your last door.

Nerd Monkey!

I found the Nerd Monkey in a tree on Park Street after completing the main game.

In the tree near the kiosk and the pole with the orange box, you should see a small orange tail. interact with it and it will disappear. Then exit and reenter Park Street. The monkey should be standing with the posing forensic workers. Simply stand near him and interact to unlock the achievement.


Just play through the game and complete the 3 sidequests without ever calling on the taxi. There are a few moments in the story that force you to use the taxi and cannot be avoided (such as when you accuse some suspects). As long as you don’t click on Clown Bot to call a taxi, you should get this achievement after completing the sidequests and main game.

Thanks to Sendou for confirming that sidequests are required.

Case Closed!

Simply beat the main case! After completing the main case you are free to beat the remaining side quests.


The Big♥♥♥♥♥♥

There are (as of now) 3 side quests in the game: Garcia’s Stick, Manel’s Bet, The Videotapes. Big letters will announce when a case is closed, in case you are unsure. Obviously there are some major spoilers here, but proceed if you wish.

1. Finding Garcia’s Stick: This can be done during the main game. After talking to Garcia at the police station you will have the option to press the Q icon when you click on him (Clown Bot will say this means he has a side quest). To complete the quest you will need to talk to Ms. Star outside the Hotel, talk to the hotel manager, and find the document on the floor in the police room. After that you will interrogate Garcia who will then ask you to talk to Star, do so and the case should be solved after some dialogue.

2. Solving Manel’s Bet: After talking to Manel you should go into the bathroom and look next to the mirror. From there find the shoeshiner, then Carlos back at the bar, and then finally look for Roberta Fawkes at the hotel (look at the guest book). you will then need to use the evidence you gathered (pills, a picture, and a jockstrap) to interrogate Manel. After some backtracking and dialogue this case should be closed.

3. Finding the Videotapes: you can find most of the tapes without proceeding through the story (maybe 7 or so), but eventually you will need to go through the main story to find them all. The final tape is unlocked after you complete the main game, your mother gives it to you. Here are some of the locations:

– 1.In the waiting room outside your office (where you first meet Garcia) there should be a tape on the table near the window on the left.

– 2. At the police station there is a door behind Garcia’s desk that can be opened. Inside there is Robocop, and above him is a well hidden tape.

– 3. in the arcade on the left side of the racing arcade game.

– 4. Underneath the bed in room 302 at the hotel (the crime scene)

– 5. at Noitadas above the picture near the man playing guitar.

– 6. near the bartender at Bar Gaf, on the shelf near the bathroom.

– 7. I believe this one can be found later in the story line when you are looking for a certain suspect that likes the arcade. Here is a tip, thanks to user VWR: ” Tape 7 is definitely in room 501 I had returned there AFTER ‘ve got a key at the Arcade from Steve (or Stuart?) and it was lying there beside bedtable. Mayhaps it was there before and I didn’t noticed.”

– 8. I think this one cane be found in the Hotel in a room during a side quest. Possibly in room 603, thanks to user Dar for the heads up!

– 9. given to you after the game by your mom. UPDATE: you have to click on the T.V. in your bedroom after finding all the other tapes. The characters will mention how there are no more and then your mom will show up to give you the last one.



To unlock this achievement you need to fail every interrogation for the main quest at least once, and this has to all be done in a single playthrough.

Thanks to Sendou for pointing out that sidequests don’t count towards this.


you will unlock this after getting all the other achievements. Some users have had to look at the trophy case in their office (see below) while others just needed to enter their office. Congratulations!
