We stayed at this hotel because it was close to the conference venue. Indeed there is free wifi in the lobby which is very choppy, dedicated to one digital device and has the most " unfriendly " user name and password which have to be entered every time....to avoid all this we acquired two access accounts for 15 euros for...

The hotel provides good services and makes an efford to make a stay as pleasent as possible. The downside of the hotel is the noise coming from the bridge. It is very close to the river and Alcantara night life is good.

I stayed here because I went to a conference at the conference centre. I didnt bother reading the reviews but if I had then I might have thought twice about the convenience. Yes I am noise sensitive - but even on the 'quiet side", which I was given because i was here for a week, it was noisy. The singing... More

This is a conference hotel lying right under the tall bridge.... - and of course close to Tejo river - but not the ideal location. So you should choose this hotel if you ar attending a conference at the adjacent conference center (300 m). At a conference hotel "state of the art in Europe 2014" is free, well-functioning and speedy... More

I stayed for business, the hotel is closest one to the congress centre. On arrival there was a long queue at the reception, and only one staff member working, it took 20 minutes to check in, and I had been travelling for 18 hours. My first room was 6th floor and directly overlooking both the suspension bridge ( rail and... More

Medium hotel with average comfort, friendly reception service, nice premises and good rooms. The restaurant served a steak but the meat was far away from what was expected considering that we opted for a sirloin steak.

We had a bedroom in 7th floor, which had the most amazing view of both the river and part of the town. Looks lovely when the lights are on in the night. Must mention the reception staff, they were helpful with maps and details we needed to look around in lisbon. They had a lot of patience and was always... More

Very basic hotel for a 4 star. Rooms spartan and basic. Hotel is clean and modern but many kilometers from anywhere interesting. The price is good. But, the constant trains on the big bridge are just plain annoying. Along with the occasional noisy flight going overhead.

Nice hotel. Well received at reception. Room great. Quiet. Great sleep and spotlessly clean and breakfast was great. The location is under the bridge and close to the river. My stay was for business so not sure where it is located in terms of shops etc,

Purpose - romantic runaway for 3 days/nights in Lisbon. Hotel is very clean, neat and it has semi-sophisticated look. Highly professional staff that take cares of any of the guests' needs right away. Location - great! 5 minute walk to one Metro station, 15 minutes enjoyable riverwalk to the other Metro station & Belem historic venue. Pretty view of the... More
