This is in a great central location. It is a clean, functional hotel with basic facilities which served us well for a weekend break

This hotel is located right by the Rossio Metro and within walking distance to most everything in Lisbon. It is definately a unique hotel (i.e. we had pink toilet paper) but the service is great; anytime we had a question the staff was very helpful. They even gave us a laptop to use in the room which was nice. Also,... More

ok let's strat with the cons: no proper working desk; we took the M room type, which for our standards is tiny. the only difference, as per the receptionist, with the S rooms, is that the S rooms have an internal view (thus might be quieter). that brings me to the other con- we had a room facing Rosio, even...

I think it was kinda lucky of us to find this hotel at a nice price and when they are still presenting their qualities to the public since it is a new hotel in Lisbon (4 or 5 months?). Our room was not the best option (they have bigger rooms), but everything was in it`s right place. Staff so nice... More

It is a pity that no care has been given to the noise from outside. The hotel claims a design style but does not deliver, coming short in value for money. The location is great but the hotel is not cheap for what offers.

it's a very pleasant hotel, modern and well decorated. It was clean, the staff was extremely nice and helpful, the bar offered a wide range of drinks and teas with a view over Praça Rossio. The room had a "refreshing" design. 24 hour room service. We had no problems at all.

Firstly, this has the potential to be a great boutique hotel. It is ideally located, with great views, friendly staff and a very good breakfast (included in our rate). However, we had problems. Firstly, having booked (and had confirmed by email from the hotel) twin beds, the room didn't have them, so we were moved. Then in our second room,... More

Booking a hotel in a place you've never been before can be a bit nerveracking but the IDH lived up to our expectation. Right in the middle of the Rossio, it's perfectly located for all areas. We were impressed by its cleanliness and decor. Breakfast was great and served until 11 (always a good thing). Perhaps the only thing that... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights after a 10 day Mediterranean cruise that ended on Nov 19/09 in Lisbon. Great little boutique hotel that had different decorative themes in each of five floors. Room was very clean, simple but nicely decorated, Location could not be better, as it is a stone's throw away from Rossio Square, many shops and... More

Hotel in excellent location, easily accesible via the metro link. Very close to sightseeing areas, restaurants and bars. The quality of the room was good, only marred by the usual lack of "anywhere to put anything " in the boutique type hotel. The designers seem to forget that we actually need space for toiletries etc. as well as things looking... More
