Just spent a long weekend in Lisbon here with several friends and really enjoyed it. The hotel is well situated and is clean and quiet with good access to the Metro. Wifi was fine and hotel is happy to store bags before/after check-in

This may not be a 5 star hotel but it does offer excellent value for money: parking is free, the wifi is good, and the rooms are fine. There are lots of places around to eat or grab a coffee. and the metro is only a couple of hundred yards away. I'd use it again.

This hotel has been slowly degrading but is still excellent value for money. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the location is great for business (not so much for tourism) and the food buffet is small but has quality. It has free parking and Wifi.

I stayed in this hotel for ten nights. I arrived at 8.30am after a night flight and was thankful for a bed. The bedroom had wifi. The flat screen channel had English language programmes. The kingsize bed was comfortable. There was plenty of room for my clothes and suitcases. The bathroom. Had an interesting bath with a clear glass wall...... More

How could that hotel ever have 5 stars? 3 stars would be appropriate. No extraordonary service, the breakfast buffet is really bad for a 5 star hotel. The carpet of our hotel room was dirty. The room too small. The pool was approx. 5 m long and 2,50m wide. Overall the hotel earns 3 stars., not more.

The hotel has a good price/quality ratio. It is clean and the personnel is kind. The location is not optimal since it is quite far from the city centre. Luckily there is an underground station just around the corner which allows to reach the tourist areas. The main reason for disappointment with this hotel is the booking system on their... More

The staff are extremely rude and short with us. The bed covers were constantly damp after repeated changes. The sink was blocked for our entire stay. The spa staff were not accommodating and made it impossible to select and reserve treatments. There is no way this hotel should be classified as 5 star.

As everyone wrote, this hotel can be max a 4 star (on the portoguese standards). The rooms are nice and the beds comfortable, there's a gym and we had a good stay. What is to blame was the service, extremely slow and inaccurate (not only the trainees at the reception) and the position is close to the metro station "campo... More

This hotel review is relative to the price we paid and to the hotel stay rating.................. We stayed here for 2 nights. We arrived at 13:30 and told they had no rooms but to have some dinner and come back at 1400 (the offical check in time) or told even better 1430 as there would be a wait as lots... More
