This hotel is located in Almada, across the river from Lisbon. I stayed here because of a business event in the city of Almada. I arrived quite early in the morning, well before the stated checkin time, and was grateful to have a room provided. The hotel is modern, with contemporary furnishings in the lobby and its adjoining bar and restaurant, and lounge areas. The room was on a higher floor, overlooking the main freeway which takes you to the Bridge of Lisbon. Nothing panoramic, although from some areas of the hotel, a rear view of the impressive Christo statue could be seen. While it did not seem to be in a tourist destination and quite far from the sights of Lisbon, it was used by tour companies, and the restaurant was crowded both mornings with busloads of senior tourists, whose behavior and manners in the restaurant could do with considerable improvement!! Perhaps it was their tour deadlines, but they were pushy, loud and disrespectful of other people. There is not much in the way of restaurants around the hotel that I could find on a short walk around, although there we a couple of small cafes in walking distance. You certainly will need to rely on your Portuguese business hosts to find nice restaurants, and there are several in the central area of Almada. This is not a hotel for tourists doing sightseeing in Lisbon, although it is accessible by tram.
