Late September break in Lisbon in a lovely hotel which is rather let down by the theme of Hollywood, which it doesn't need as it is a very good hotel without a theme. Met each morning in the lift by larger than life size image of either Humphrey Bogart or Audrey Hepburn which was a little off-putting. Each bedroom is themed. We were originally in the Jackie Chan room. We checked in and were told by the receptionist that the room was rather small but we could change to a larger room next day if we wished, which we did. We said goodbye to Jackie Chan and hello to 'Rear Window' which appeared to be an Alfred Hitchcock film - a fabulous room which I think was a King Suite, and it was indeed very glamorous - huge, very comfortable bed with a large dressing table and chair, occasional table and two more chairs, lots of lamps and room to spread out - plenty of room to sit and read on wet days in Lisbon (which we had from start to finish). Very good bathroom. Hotel situated next to Marques Pombal Metro station which is easy to get in and out of the centre (24 hour metro ticket 6 Euros which we used to get to and from airport and around the city as you can hop on and off trams and metro. The tickets were a little temperamental to use (buy ticket for 50 cents, then re-charge when needed), we had very heavy rain during our trip and found the rain affected the operation of the tickets to scan properly,but very useful way to get around. Hotel about 30 minutes walk from city centre. Hotel restaurant is the 'Great American Disaster' which is accessed from outside, through a rather strange arrangement through a small shopping centre. Restaurant in-keeping with Hollywood theme and is a 1950s style American diner serving burgers etc. Used on our first evening and found it was good value and nice burger, but wouldn't want to use to get a Portuguese experience of dining. Seemed popular with local young population. All in all a very good hotel which I would recommend, but needs to ditch the Hollywood theme which it doesn't need.
