Great location; good service; reasonable cost; decent but limited breakfast; easy check-in/check out; nice room; 20 minute walk to waterfront (which is fabulous); staff helpful and accommodating; wifi very good (needs more electrical outlets in rooms); clean, safe; near many cafes/restaurants/upscale shopping ---would stay again, and will on my return to an exceptionally friendly city.

This hotel is well located in a quiet street close to the Marques de Pombal metro. Everything about the hotel is acceptable, but it sets it's standards low when it could achieve so much more. Rooms are clean and functional, but small, bland and worn. The staff seem disinterested, though polite. The wifi was not reliable, fading in and out... More

Great friendly staff who also speak English with a nice breakfast buffet available. Great balcony terraces available on the sixth floor. Great location only a short metro ride from Airport and from City Centre.

I booked my hotel through Booking.com. Somehow, Booking.com booked me for a year ahead, I suspect a site glitch. When I showed up from Canada to Portugal, the hotel identified that my booking was for in a year's time 17 - 20 Oct 2016 instead of 17-20 Oct 2015. Despite having available rooms and the ability to put it all... More

This is a horrible place to stay (I cannot really call it a hotel). The pictures on the web site are far away from the reality. Do not book this hotel if you want to enjoy your stay in Lisbon! The main problem is the lack of cleanliness. The sheets are meant to be white, but they are so old... More

The hotel itself is "poor". I do want to note we ended up having some positive experiences there because the gentleman working in the lobby to greet you is so helpful and offers a very white glove type of service (that is unusual for the condition of this hotel). First of all, the hotel does not look like the website.... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights (5-8th June). I chose this hotel after reading reviews, comparing prices and locations. One of the best points of this hotel is location, it's not in the centre but 2 metro stops (or 10-15min walking from Rossio). Close to hotel are 2 metro lines. There's a supermarket open till 21:00 which is... More

This hotel room was gross. Its difficult to get to, parking is bad and you have to pay for the key to the safe. Given that are windows on the lower floors didnt lock, that was really bad. We took the closet pole to jam it. The folks that work there are great but this place I just didnt feel... More
