We stayed in this hotel (party of seven ladies) for 4 nights recently. Hotel in need of updating, but found the staff very friendly and helpful. Bedrooms very clean, bed linen towels etc. changed daily. Dining room open from 7.00 am - 10.00am with varied continental breakfast. Only around 50 yards from Metro so ideally placed for getting around Lisbon.... More

The hotel location is good but that's about all there is to it. My husband and I were received by a very rude female receptionist. They were fixing an elevator during our stay and the noise was sometimes (at 8am!) unbearable. We complained to the same receptionist that welcomed us and she didn't even apologise for the noise. The bathroom... More

Very good location, good personnel, poor cleaning, bad smell, dirty matress, dirty towels, bathroom door not closing, wc water tank decfect, mold curtains, old furniture and bath tub. This hotel is perfect for low budget travelers. Thing I liked best: location. Thing I liked less: dirtyness.

I paid £35pn for a double room. The bed and television and flooring were new, everything else was dated and worn, tho generally clean, Linen and towels were fresh and clean. The shower room was however tiny with very outdated fittings and the shower head fitting was broken. Breakfast was served in the hotel restaurant which is obviously too small... More

This hotel is in a great location for getting around Lisbon. Staff are friendly and helpful but the Indian restaurant advertised does not exist, rooms are very basic and shabby but linen is clean. One of the reasons I booked was for the restaurant being alone. On a safety aspect, the bath is not none slip so whether having a... More

We've been in this hotel at the end of April. It has been a nightmare: dirty rooms (we got head lices), lack of wall sockets. Moreover, the hall for breakfast was too small and people are forced to get in line. The breakfast was terrible and very poor.

I needed to wait for some friends that were staying at the hotel and asked if I could have a coffee. Breakfast was still underway and I was told to go into the breakfast room. I had to serve my own [american] coffee (not expresso) and a friend that was with me poured herself a glass of milk. When we... More

Very close to metro station. Location is very good - 5 minutes walk to Avenida da Liberdade, in 15 minutes you can reach Bairro Alto or Baixa. The hotel is really oldfashioned but if you don't care is really good for short stay. Staff very nice and helpful. Worth the money paid.

Very good. I have to say that forniture was quite old but we didn't care. It was clean and people kind.

Horrible hotel. Probably the worse hotel I have ever stayed. Worse than hostels.  Room 406. Airconditioning didn't work. Temperature over 40 C. I went to reception to change the room and they didn't want to change it, just send somebody to fix it. But even if it seems to work air was not cold. I couldn't sleep the whole night.... More
