We booked a beautiful top floor room with terrace overlooking this hotel's swimming pool and beautiful garden and the city beyond. The room and bath were spacious and the furnishings were of high quality, the bed one of the most comfortable we've found in our travels. Sleeping here was bliss. Staff can't do enough to make you comfortable and welcome.
The only minor drawback is that it is located in a residential area [embassies, private villas] so there isn't much located nearby in terms of restaurants or shopping. The streets are steep and cobblestones so walking can be treacherous for the uninitiated. Unless you eat at the hotel, you would probably need to be driven or take a taxi to dinner, ditto for getting into Lisbon's tourist attractions. We walked to two different restaurants that were 4-5 blocks away and believe me, it was not easy and we are very fit and wore flat shoes...
That said, the hotel is a lovely oasis for a visit to Lisbon.
