Stayed at this great hotel for a week and I can't say enough about it! Firstly though, if you are a party of 3 as we were, there are no triple rooms at the standard rate, so a camper bed is provided which was a bit of a pain but at the same time, I'm not complaining as this is what we signed up for!
Firstly, the hotel itself is bright and modern, spotlessly clean and with great staff. It is within easy reach of Lisbon city centre, just hop on the number 3 metro (at the bottom of the hill beside the hotel), get off at the last stop and hop on the ferry over the river. The ferry is less than €3 return and takes about 7 minutes. Then it's a straight walk to the major attractions.
Almada itself is just lovely, a good sized, hilly town with great shops and cafes. If you're really up for shopping, get a taxi from the hotel reception to the Almada Forum. It costs about €10 and is well worth it! A great shopping centre with all the big brands! Loved it!! Hotel receptionist organised taxis for us, a great plus when you don't speak the language!
Breakfast at the hotel, in my opinion, was perfect! A hot and cold buffet, good coffee and lots to choose from. Breakfast is served until 10.30. In the evenings, the hotel restaurant serves fantastic meals at unbeatable prices! €7.50 for a soup starter, steak and fries (for example) and dessert. There are other, even cheaper options. Could not fault the food nor the service. A glass of wine comes in at about €2 and bottled beer around the same.
I loved the hotel and the location also and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone! A great stay.
