This hotel is advertised as a four-star which perhaps is a little too generous as it is more a three-star. Our room on the fifth floor (#514) was compact, albeit very serviceable. The decor is relaxing. The bathroom was by far its strongest point by being well-equipped and quite spacious. Our room was on the back of the building with a patio door that opened onto a tiny deck. However, deck access was not possible due to a metal rod that was installed across the doorway. Despite this, it was nice to be able to get some fresh air.
The early part of the night was quite noisy inside the hotel with doors slamming, but it did quiet down and was then very tranquil. Although there is a restaurant in the hotel, there are not many in the immediate vicinity. However, within about a ten minute walk there are many to be found.
The hotel is clean but the hotel might do well to protect their bed quilts with a cover. Ours had red wine stains on it.
The most objectionable incident that occurred at this hotel was provided at the front desk upon checking in. We asked the attendant (Carlos) if we could get a taxi for an early morning flight. The next day it arrived on time but it was obviously a lot more than a regular taxi as it didn't have a roof light and looked like it just came out of a Mercedes Benz showroom somewhere. Upon arriving at the airport it cost 15 euros. We have been to Lisbon enough to know this is about double a regular taxi fare. It was presumptuous of the hotel employee to assume we wanted a limousine when we just asked for a taxi. A recommendation at this hotel is to be precise when asking the front desk for a taxi, or better still, go out on the street and hail one down.
