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

Probably worth a 3.5, but I have difficulty in giving it the benefit of the doubt. For the purpose of a 3-night business stay this was a well appointed, functional hotel more or less under the impressive "25th of April Bridge"; that is to say not central but within easy reach of the city businesses and attractions by public transport...

Our group of 12 stayed here in October. It was a mixed bag. The rooms were small and the beds were not any where near as comfortable as the Vile Gale in Porto. The location is adequate - within long walking distance of Belem, but a cab ride everywhere else. The view of the bridge (not from my room, however)... More

Near the 5th April bridge some rooms can be noisy, access to the bars near the port not easy, 20minute walk, bu good choice when you get there. modern hotel all you need nothing special. very close to the exhibition center so good if you need to be there, nothing else around.

My girlfriend and I spent a week at this hotel and enoyed the stay-walking all over Belem, along the river, Botanical garden.Goodconnections(tram 15E) to Rossio square in town. Hippotrip on land and water. But be sure to get room onfront side ofhotel. And generally the noise from the bridge whenoutside is disturbing.
