The perfect place to stay being a 20 minute stroll from the finish allowing you to loosen up. Swimming pool, bar with affordable and delicious hot snack food just what you need to relax and refuel. Rooms well kept and clean with bath/shower and lots of hot water. Recommend the breakfast which caters for all. Staff very professional, knowlegeable and... More

16 stayed in the hotel, great price, food, location and very friendly and helpful staff. I left my iPad in the hotel and they kept it until i could organise FedEx to collect it which was over a week. No problems for them though. Will definitely be going again.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights with a group of 49 music students. The rooms are clean, well maintained although the mattresses are not luxurious and have plastic protectors that impact their comfort. The food is very good, breakfast and dinner buffets with lots of choice and options for everyone. The staff are friendly and treated the students... More

great hotel with a very opulent lobby! Breakfast is yummy and all you can eat. very close to public transportation or a quick ride on a taxi. Rooms are spacious and we asked to have a view of the bridge and they obliged - happy days. Not very central if you want to walk everywhere but the tram takes you... More

The initial impression of the hotel itself was good, but it was not the ideal location for two "seniors" wanting to sight-see Lisbon using public transport. At the time we visited, they were refurbishing the kitchens, which impacted on the quality and variety of the evening meals offered. But we enjoyed the Friday night opera singers and the reception staff... More

Good value, modern and clean. Surprisingly quiet given the location and easy to park on the street nearby. A useful hotel to stay in if you are only in town for a night or two. Waking distance from the Docas area of Alcantara, and close to all the river attractions at Belem

I like this hotel as it is strategically located along the Tagus River, offers travelers with one of the best view of this cultural rich city. The hotel is within walking distance to the Lisbon Conventional Center and it is equipped with business function rooms thus offer a great choice for business related stay and activities. My personal preference is... More

Very nice hotel. Nice and helpful staff. The hotel is newly refurbished and a very good standard. Location could be better, but for the price it is really good. Very good value for money! I would stay here again.

When this hotel was booked by our hosts for the business event, I was quite apprehensive based on the earlier inputs that I had access to. Our check-in process was far from smooth, the staff at the front desk was also not too helpful and my worst fears were about to be proven true. However, the whole experience thereafter was... More

This hotel is a bit like a museum. It is very clean and pretty. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is very good. Location is almost under Ponte 25 de Abril so a bit far from city historical center of Lisbon but in my case that was perfect. Not pretty from the outside.
