I guess the title sums up most of i have to say about this hotel.
On the bright side :
It is new and very clean everywhere i went.
Good bedding and ok towels.
A nice and comprehensive (international standards) buffet breakfast
As i was there on my birdthday. i was complimented with a cake, candleand sparkling room. surprise from the 'hotel manager'
Affordable prices on minibar
Very quiet inside
Energy savers : corridors lights are triggered by movement detectors, room lights require key cards, A/C turns off when window is opened
A/C control in room
The price is very reasonable for what we get (considering the hotel only, not the surroundings)
Goood selection on cable TV (the standard mix wih a bit of every language)
On the less bright side :
The area is most boring (business area, the deserted type) and not so close to points of interests. Very few eating places around for diner. (a few for lunch), it is simply deadzone in the evening. Taxis are unavoidable to go places (but they are not too expensive in Lisbon)
It is on a large street bordered by buildings (hotels and businesses, or empty). The street can be quiet noisy at day time. Airplanes landing in Lisbon fly right by the hotel ... The isolation from outer noise is quite efficient, but it means closing windows.
ice cube machines on all floors - non worked (they send ice when you ask)
Amenities in bathroom were average and no body lotion (even on demand - sorry for me this a basic 3* up)
The staff was not overly nice. No sure if it is cultural to the country or the hotel ;-) anyways it contributed to the general lack of atmosphere,
There is a Spa and i have not found time to check out and even less try out.
In conclusion : quite satisfactory for a business stay , or if on a pleasure trip intend to just drop your luggage and enjoy it for quiet nights and good kick-off breakfast
