I have been here on my own for work. Location is fabulous, i had a room on 11th floor which is the top floor and the views was amazing to the ocean, although the hotel need some repairs and a facelift, i looked to me 80's decor and haven't been upgraded since. To go to the beach you just need... More

Very disappointed in this hotel...it is in need of serious repairs and face lift. The only nice area of the hotel is the restaurant and maybe the lobby. The pool area is okay but it was great to have the beach right across the street and supermarket in the Hotel behind this hotel. The staff was friendly but you had... More

I stayed as part of a group. Except for the restaurant (on the top floor with a very nice sea view) the hotel is definitely not a four star. The rooms are very basic, beds, TV set, bathroom, all basic, even the toiletries (small soap sachets). Food in the restaurant just OK.

Extremely disappointed!(I'm not a fussy person) When arriving there I was shocked to see how bad the exterior is. Still went inside, asked to see the bedroom and things were falling apart. Then the manager took me to another room and still the same thing. So, I've decided to look to another place. This hotel is in very bad condition... More

I stayed here for six nights whilst attending an event in Cascais. The hotel is conveniently located about ten minutes walk from the train station so easy, cheap and quick to get to Cascais or Lisbon. The beach is also nearby and there is a fantastic view of this from the eighth floor dining room. Some of the hotel fittings... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, and was a little disspointed by the weather beaten appearance of the hotels exterior. However, once inside, things got better, nice lobby, good room (a top floor suite with a HUGE balcony) and good pool area. Breakfast was a a buffet, and was fine. Hotel has a small car park at the rear, but the... More

old standard, bad beds (even in the suite!) the breakfast is cheap, no fresh food and hardly any fruits, the eggs are not eatable and the coffee is from a machine (milk powder, sugar, water). The carpets are dirty and the Wifi internet is terribly slow. Four stars? No. Never again.

big building, old hotel concept of the 80's. Go to this hotel only for Cascais, Sintra and Estoril. Down town Lisbon is far and taxi are expensive. They don't have a gym, so they send you at the fitness center of Regina hotel nearby. So why don't you rather stay @ the Regina? The restaurant could be nice, at the... More

This Hotel is one of the oldest hotels on the Lisbon shoreline. It is all but poshy and its location is the very best in the Lisbon area, if you like the beach and an unbeatable view over the Ocean. It is located at the long sandy beach of Carcavelos and the service is extremely friendly. Also unbeatable is the... More

If you like clean rooms and bath, good breakfast, nice personnel - please try another hotel. This hotel can be qualified as 2 stars hotel with prices for 4 stars. No normal internet access, old and no furniture maintance. Have a closer look to their internet site.
