Nice little hotel in charming and central part of lisbon. Hotel's atmosphere and decoration may not be as nice and refined as the impression given in the hotel's pictures, pity as upgrading some of the basic furnitures and paints could have made a real difference given the settings and location. Room size as announced seems to a large extend overestimated..Decoration... More

Hello and thank your for your comment. Please note all the art at the hotel is original modern art and not copies, as you'll find in most cases. We have different decoration and style in every room, so forming your opinion based on one photograph on the internet is a bit tricky, and our idea of the hotel concept is... More

Very nice hotel, well situated near the castle and old town or down town 10 min walking. Clean and comfortable rooms with a little view to the river. The staff are very friendly. The only minus is the breakfast a little expensive regarding the offer not so great, without hot food and few choices. An advice: portugal is rich in... More

Hello and thank you for your review. Breakfast menu is normally determined by what our guests request: that's how muffins made their appearance. We normally include various items from traditional portuguese pastry, depending on whether or not it's logistically possible to get them in time for breakfast to the Castle area. Obviously some guests are having issues with local food... More

They were a few amenities missing from what you would expect from a 4star hotel: no minibar, no internet in the room .. They didn't have any maps on the first day of our arrival which was disappointing as we wanted to check our whereabouts. We were also given a room on the 1st floor while our booking stipulated we...

Hi and thanks for taking the time to write a review! We are going to rework room types/definitions for all our web pages in 2014 so that people are more aware of what they're booking and how their accommodation is going to look like. It's strange there were no maps at the front desk, we'll investigate what went wrong. In... More

Hotel is well presented / clean and the staff are very friendly and all speak English. For a four star hotel it did have some bits missing. Bed was very hard and there was no minibar in the room. My room was noisy at night with people coming in as it was on the first floor. Also my room faced... More

Hello and thank you for the review/suggestions. With mattresses/beds, it's a bit tricky to find the right solution: some guests find them either too soft or too hard; too small or too large. We can always move people to a different room in case they're having trouble with their original room, all you need to do is communicate to the... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this very attractive boutique hotel in the Alfama area of Lisbon which is a great location for getting to all the main attractions. The hotel is spotlessly clean, very well run with an excellent buffet breakfast. The bedrooms are quite quirky, a good size with modern furnishings. The manager was very helpful with information...

To be recommended - if you're the 'Marriott-kind-of-traveller': fine location, charming room, wonderful view of the city - and service minded staff. And - on a very, very rainy day - we were served a large glas port. Just what we needed to cheer up ...

We rented three rooms, all of which were beautifully decorated, clean, large, and very comfortable. The views from the rooftop suite were fantastic. The only downside for us was that we were too tall for the ceilings in the top-floor suite and received a couple bumps and cuts going into the bathroom.

We stayed at this beautifully decorated hotel on our first three nights in Lisbon. We then road tripped, but decided to come back for our last night in Portugal. We were not disappointed!! The view from the rooftop suite was simply breathtaking. Centrally located at the steps of the Castelo Sao Jorge, you can walk everywhere from here. The staff... More
