Close to the Tejo river and less than 10 minutes to the city centre (Chiado, Rossio and Augusta Street), this hotel represents a very good choice for a city break.
I used this hotel with my family for a city break in Lisbon using some cuppons offered by my Bank (SANTANDER). Our stay was perfect. The área is safe, calm and, if you rent a car, you have parking in the hotel (fee relatively cheap) or in the street, close to the hotel (we used this option). The rooms are large and very well furbished. There are LCD TV, radio, safe-block, telephone and all the things that you could need, such as a iron to improve you clothes. The WC is perfect. The hotel is like new with a lot of charm. Using a modern style, all seems perfect, revealing a lot of work used in details.
The breakfast is perfect but, dispite the breakfastroom be very large, you should need some time in quele before you take a table. The service is almost perfect. There is a large variety of dishes such as fruit, cakes, cereals, bread, jam, butter, cheeses, yogurts and so on.
The staff is very attentive and kind. You have comfortable lifts (elevators) from the bottom floor, avoiding any problems for disable people.
Sometimes you can find a opera show in the lobby, with high quality, peformed by two opera singers (a woman and a man). Ask in the reception when it can happens. It is unmissable and unforgettable.
I can't try the restaurante of the hotel (due to incompatibility of time), but the offer presented in the lift seems to be a great deal, with nice value for money.
We will be back to this hotel soon. I really love it and the service.
