Full marks on all aspects of this hotel. Staff welcoming, rooms beautiful, comfortable and luxurious, spacious, great view, only location gets less than full marks because some people wouldn't like it being out of the centre and up a hill. But the plus for this is the view and also the quiet, no question of being woken by traffic noise.... More

I stayed at the hotel one night and it was rather far from Lisbon Centre. VERY strange area with a lot of seasonal workers, beggars etc.... Rooms are really great though - mine was with a huge terrace and astonishing view on the red roofs of Lisbon/ The hotel receptionist recommended me one local restaurant that was rather good -...

The room design is tasteful- in a traditional sense. I like the wallpaper & patterned carpeting. Good matching of faux- classical furniture. The lobby design is nothing to write home about. Very slow internet- would not even allow viewing of website photos. Largely clean, except shower curtain. When I requested a fresh curtain- without strong bacterial odor- housekeeping obligingly complied.... More

This hotel definitely made our trip to Lisbon very memorable. The hotel service attendant (Rui) took the time to explain the main attractions as well as the surrounding area- he was friendly, polite and suggested attractions that were worth visiting. Throughout the entire stay the service was impeccable. One of the drawbacks of rooms in Europe is usually hotel rooms... More

We stayed for a few nights in a superior double with terrace, hoping to get a similar experience to that depicted in the beautiful photographs on the hotel website. However we were disappointed by the reality, and found this hotel only average. Our room was on the second floor (room 205), and the view from the terrace was obstructed by... More

Ok hotel in alfama, clean, beige room. We booked the room because of the recommended view from the balcony, however there was no view from the second floor... Breakfast was okay but they kept running out of the most popular pastries (white rolls and croissants).
