Quite a basic but very modern hotel offering good sized rooms with excellent air conditioning (outside temperature when I stayed hovered around 30˚ and the room was kept very cool). My room unfortunately had no balcony but was still well proportioned. The room was kept very clean and sheets changed daily. No safe or minibar but neither expected for the price paid for the room. The free wifi is a bonus but note that although perfectly adequate for web browsing and email checking, services such as Skype were slow and often interrupted by poor signal.
A few minor gripes though; on a couple of occasions, upon arriving back at the hotel after spending the evening out, the automatic doors of the main entrance had been disabled and closed (and reception unmanned). I had to wait around 5 minutes on both occasions before the receptionist returned to his desk. As mentioned in previous reviews, the area is fairly quiet by night so would rather not have had to wait outside for long! Also, the doors to each hotel room are armed with an alarm that sounds if the door isn't shut properly. A few times another guest on my floor failed to shut his door properly and so the alarm could be heard from my room. Breakfast was basic but perfectly adequate for the price paid for the room.
The hotel is located a short walk from the main squares in Lisbon and only a few minutes' walk away from the metro stations Anjos and Intendente. There is little in the way of restaurants in and around the hotel, the best nearest one, Portugalia, being a 15 minute walk away on Av. Almirante Reis.
