This comfortable, well appointed hotel offers a quiet reprieve from the busy streets of Lisboa. Admittedly, it is about a :20 minute walk to the Baixa of Lisbon. However, a tram line, only a five minute walk from the hotel connects you swiftly with the rest of the city (the 15E takes you to Belem (:15)as well as the Baixa(:5min), where you can walk or easily access other transportation to the Barrio Alto etc., Tram 28, local sight seeing tours).
We had two short stays, at either ends of our 10 day Portuguese holiday, and found the rooms to be pleasantly decorated, well maintained, comfortable and quiet. A view of the harbour from the third floor is delightful. The Juliet balcony from the second floor overlooks the court yard and has a burbelling fountain to disguise the city noise if you prefer your windows to be open. During both visits our rooms had a large bathroom with a much used deep soaker tub.
The library on the third floor is a cozy room with a large balcony where guests can relax and enjoy a view of the harbour. A small, well stocked honour bar has plenty of options to quench your thirst. A happy surprise was the tray of Pasteis de Belem, the highly regarded local custard pastry!
The front staff at the hotel are very helpful. Although sadly, I left behind an item of clothing which was not returned to me despite having contacted the hotel the very next day after departure.
