You get what you pay for, and this hotel is fine if you are not expecting luxury, after all you only sleep there. Yes it is dated but it is kept spotlessly clean, the room we had was large, (103) and the beds are comfy. The staff were friendly. The shower was always hot, What's to complain about?

Like many others who have commented, after checking-in I had to log onto the website to double check whether I had booked into the right hotel! Although the reception area is sublime, the rooms are a far cry from the photo's on the web page. They are old, dated, in need of refurb - the carpets are threadbare, lights switches... More

Great location, just 100 m away from metro and near Parque Eduardo VII, it can be reached easily from the airport. It is also close to the city center, even if you want to walk (maybe 30 minutes away). Being a 4 stars hotel, I was expecting a bit more from this hotel, which is far from modern. Although, is...

The location is excellent near Parque Eduardo VII. Staff is very attentive and helpful. Room w/ generous dimensions, was clean but the smell like old was there, very strong. Bathroom small but fairly equipped for the price. Overall aspect is too old almost looking (but not in fact) not clean. The price was fair.

Although situated in prime location, near the Pombal Circuit, the hotel is fairly old and could do with some revamping. The room are decent in size, somewhat oddly planned, by as far as comfort is concern... it was OK. you enter the room into a chamber that includes the wardrobe, and inside it the fridge... than, you go through a...

Not interested what others say about how many stars this should be. As usual North Americans are moaning about how dated it is, they want everything ripping out every few years, it seems. Seemed to have a timeless classy hotel style, OK not chic and modern but suits me. Don't moan about paying 2 euros to have a cab called,... More

How the travel agencies allow this hotel to rates itself as 4 stars is beyond belief. Other than its central location it is not even close to a one star. The check in area and lobby are in reasonable condition but once you enter the upper floors the kindest description one can give is rather shabby. The carpets are almost... More

This is not a 4 star hotel. I would say a weak 3. I had 2 chances when I was arrived. Stay in a smoking room with WiFi or non-smoking room without WiFi. Due to the reason that I was on a business trip I had to choose smoking room. The room was very old furnished, especially the bathroom. I... More
