It was with trepidation that I ended up staying at this hotel – on paper it appeared inviting – new contemporary design, modern, clean and catering for the business end of the market.
However my concern was about the distance from Lisbon as this hotel is in the Almada district – which seemed a little much having to catch a tram/bus then a ferry just to get to Lisbon proper.
However this was soon forgotten as the journey to and from the hotel was actually pretty enjoyable in itself – the locals are so friendly, the trip especially across the harbour was quick and regular and the view enjoyable – but you do have to factor this into your decision if staying here
The hotel itself couldn’t be faulted the staff were near on perfect, friendly helpful and very obliging, the rooms comfortable, spacious and tastefully designed,, the superior rooms especially had refreshments available 24/7, and Wi-Fi was included in the price. All in all a great stay in a wonderful, warm and inviting city.
