the pros- this is an olde worlde hotel with a magnificent courtyard with a very comfortable sofa (I had my siesta there whilst waiting in the afternoon before leaving), the location is good you can find something open to eat not far from the hotel in the small hours of the night and almost next door is a wonderful brazilian restaurant (a little pricey by lisbon standards but wonderful food and good service), the staff in the hotel were correct and i heard them being very helpful to clients. They also helped us to surprise our friends who were getting married by letting us into their rooms to decorate it.
the rooms are all very different, my room had space but wasnt well used space, the twin beds were almost a double bed and the room could have been better distributed
the cons - considering the price of the hotel i found the room service and mini bar slighty exaggerated for lisbon prices, there was also mould around the window frames in the room andbatgroom which gave a dirty /dated look to the room
the stairs are a lot to get access but a porter carries your baggage up and down and they are not partcularly steep, just a lot.
I had a room on the entrance floor but others also had problems with inside stairs as they could be a bit slippery. the 2 roomed suite with its own terrasse had an amazing view and I would recommend this is you have no problem with stairs. The air conditioning was not very efficient so be wary of this if you stay in the very hot summer months, especially as it could be a little noisy with the window open.
Next door to the hotel is a really interesting 2nd hand and handmade craft shop worth looking in.
