“Superb Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Nothing beats this hotel's location, helpful and friendly staff and breakfast quality and variety.
Everything is close and there is good transportation to others spots in Lisboa.
When I was there they were using this brand of cosmetics http://www.rituals.com. The slippers (rather flip-flops), bath robe and orange umbrella in the room all proved very useful and thoughtful. Thanks to the management for offering it.
The design of every detail and inscription is fun. Each floor has a different theme and soft thematic music in the corridor.
There is a free bottle of water and free welcome drink on arrival.
I really felt at home. Especially when I was without my luggage for 11 days. The front desk was calling Ground Force every day if they had found it. All suggestions for restaurants and shops were excellent.
I would love to stay at this hotel again.

We were happy with our staying at this hotel. Location, breakfast, bar and all staff was perfect. The room wasn't big enough but very clean. The view from the room was also excellent. It was looking Rossio Square. İnternet was free and good connection. Nice bar:))

Nice and modern hotel. Great location (city centre) and great views (if you get a room with view to the square).
You can walk and see “Baixa Pombalina” and one step from public transports (Metro, Bus and Tram).

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay.The bar had wonderful bar staff who had excellent skills with cocktails

Room Tip: choose an urban small room for 2 people

Nice modern hotel in a great location. Staff are very friendly & the breakfast is indeed first class!
We were in a "small room" overlooking Rua da Betesga & it does get a bit noisy (especially if you like to keep a window open for some fresh air at night).
Room was nice & clean - having your own coffee machine & some free water is a nice touch as well. Bed was very comfortable & would have scored top marks for sleep quality, only the road noise let them down.
We were there for 4 nights so we were starting to find it a little bit too small.
Having said that - great value & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it - would definitely stay there again if back in Lisbon.

Room Tip: Pack some ear plugs if you want to sleep with the window open!

Stayed at the Pop art floor for two nights on a business trip. I was upgraded to a bigger room, which was nice and spacious with a great view over the plaza.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. I needed help finding a nice sushi place for take away, and both receptionists went out of their way to help me. They were also very helpful reg. shopping tips and in helping getting me a taxi for my very early flight.

A few flaws:

The desk at the pop art room looks nice. But design isn't everything. You could not sit and work at this desk, at the lower shelf is so low that your legs won't fit under the table. At the same time, the top of the table was quite high up compared to the seat of the chair. So I had to work sitting at my bed, which is not very good for your back.

Would be nice to have pay-TV with movies.

There's a Nespresso machine in the room, which was great. But no milk for the coffee/tea.

Room Tip: Take note of the design themes on each floor: Urban, zen, tribal and pop art.
