“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The rooms are well-decorated. The staff was very helpful. It is not a big hotel but it is boutique where you can find special things that may be missing in big brand hotels. The rooms are very large and there is a nice swimming pool

Room Tip: If you have budget I recommend junior suit

I say almost because nothing should be without some need of improvement. In fact I can't think of anything I would change about this hotel. Great service, beautiful surroundings, comfortable and clean rooms and our river view was spectacular. We enjoyed Lisbon although only for a short stay after arriving from Porto and a river cruise on the Douro. We called ahead for the concierge to book us two dinners and each was excellent. The concierge also arranged a driver for us and the six or seven hours spent touring the city and other sites was very enjoyable.
Great gym and a wonderful bar that served light meals. The pool area is gorgeous with fish ponds and waterfallys so a perfect place for families traveling with their children.
Everyone was helpful and more than courteous.
It is not a hotel for budget minded travelers but you get what you pay for here!

Room Tip: Ask for a river view with a balcony,,,,,breathtaking!

Excellent hotel, all the amenities and service you desire. Special praise to the concierge who was able to help us arrange a city bike tour and made a excellent dinner recommendation and reservation. I really enjoyed the indoor pool with complimentary steam room and sauna facilities. A first class establishment all the way around.

By far too short stay at this incredible "old world" establishment was the only thing I could complain about after my day and one half stay there. From the setting - the exclusive "embassy" section of Lisbon to the spectacular rooms and amenities (a "killer" pool set in a spectacular acres worth of manicured gardens) this hotel ranks with the best in the world. We had a suite with sitting room overlooking the pool that featured a huge balcony (with glimpse of the Tejo river beyond). The room amenities are many - beautiful toiletries in the spectacular marble clad bath with jaccuzzi, separate shower and private WC and bidet room. The walk in closet riveled that found in private home. We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of Port(Porto LBV 2007 Messias) AND delicious "Pasteis de Belem" . Room furnishings were gorgeous, and fresh orchids graced the fireplace..... The room, which featured a separate powder room was IMMACULATE, and the staff from desk to restaurant were spectacular - welcoming, gracious and extremely helpful. Joana met us at check in and escorted us to our rooms after inviting us to the spectacular breakfast buffet on the 3rd floor (we were HOURS earlier than the 12:00 check in) - this is an attractive space with a lovely patio that is a great place of a leisurely breakfast or lunch.
The buffet was OUTSTANDING and the service flawless.

We tried the restaurant on the main level for lunch and it offered some of the best food we've ever encountered anywhere .... try the amazing Blue Lobster or the Red Snapper and you won't be disappointed -- frankly everything on the menu (we oggled the plates of nearby diners) looked wonderful....

All the rooms in this hotel are huge by modern standards, most feature spacious balconies overlooking river or garden. There is a very very nice spa and indoor pool as well.....

This is a wonderful get away spot for someone who appreciates old world luxury - not just facilities but the greatest luxury of all - SERVICE (and with nothing but smiles). I would revisit wonderful Lisbon just to experience the service and style of this great hotel again.

PS Concierge rocks - incredibly helpful and creative....

Room Tip: Definitely go for a river/garden view room - and the Suites are amazing. I prefer 5th and 6th floor...

By far one of the finest hotels I've ever stayed at. Service was outstanding and an extremely helpful and competent staff. Location was only minutes away from heart of city and an easy cab ride. Allowed us to see some of the city we would never have seen. Want to return to Lisbon just so I can stay at the hotel again.

Room Tip: We had a river view room which was sensational. Am sure garden rooms are outstanding as well.

This is an 'old world' hotel with all the good things that implies. Superb service, lovely big rooms with large bathrooms and nice balconies. A nice big outdoor pool set in beautifully kept gardens as well as an indoor pool and spa. A breakfast buffet on the terrace is a nice way to start your day, the hotel is in a nice quiet area in easy reach of all the city sights.

Room Tip: overlook the gardens
