An ideal hotel for proximity to the airport, only 10mins taxi drive (9euros), or 3 stops on the metro (1.90euros each way) and a 5 mins walk to from the hotel. Good value, we paid £72.94 B&B. Rooms are excellent, quiet, spaceous, everything you would expect in a modern hotel, and everything worked. Breakfast was good overall but totally automated so that, for example, the coffee was from a large urn, not very hot, very murky, not very nice. If the policy is for no waiters and total automation, something as important as coffee at breakfast must be from a modern machine using freshly ground coffee. It was the same with the orange juice, some diluted concentrate, not the real thing so disappointing. A pity as the breads, pasties, etc .... were all very fresh even on the Sunday morning when we were experiencing the breakfast.
Location is 5/10 mins walk to the waterfront and a great view of the Vasco Da Gama bridge and the Burj Al Arab 'lookalike' hotel. It is a pleasant walk along the promenade with numerous restaurants, cafes, themed garden areas and a large indoor, air conditioned shopping centre.
It is NOT a hotel if you want to wander into the old historical quarter of Lisbon which is many miles away, hence the lower pricing. However the wonderful metro system so close to the hotel makes that part of the city very accessible.
