Beautifully maintained Art Deco hotel just off Lisbon's Avenida. Service--including breakfast, desk, and housekeeping--were superb. Delicious, fresh, and wide-ranging breakfast. Location convenient to subways and walking to tourist-friendly areas of the city.

Stayed for 2 nights in this beautiful heritage hotel that is impeccably maintained. Everything works and the period feel and quirkiness of this art deco hotel were a huge bonus. The hotel really feels cozy not cold and impersonal. The staff is great. They gave wonderful advice for touring the city and for great dining... The room was spacious and the beds and linens were very comfortable. The location is great too as it is situated within easy (10-15 min.) walking distance to pretty much everything yet tucked away on a quiet street. Great home base for your Lisbon trip. See photo of the view of rooftops on the left side across street from hotel. The building in front of this hotel appears to be medical labs and offices so the picture does not show this... Hope this review is helpful.

Hotel is well located but on a quiet street just off the busier area. Our room was enormous! Beautifully furnished and with very nice toiletries, always the sign of a thoughtful hotel in my opinion.
Breakfast was delicious, as were the complimentary pastries and tea in the afternoon.
Staff were delightful, could not be more helpful and friendly.
All in all an excellent base for exploring Lisbon and thoroughly recommended!

We stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is well located in a quiet area but we could walk into the centre within 10 minutes. The room was nice and large. The best part was the staff. They did everything they could to make our stay memorable. They were knowledgable, helpful and very interested to hear about our adventures in Lisbon. Raquel, especially was fantastic.

Was expecting great things from this hotel and wasn't let down. decoration and cleanliness were excellent and staff friendly and helpful. We stayed in a terrace room, very quiet and beautifully furnished. Breakfast was nice and tea/coffee offered free of charge in the afternoon.

Room Tip: terrace room was quiet and peaceful, we didn't hear anyone else at all once we were in our room.

We located in Lisbon near many if the tourist sites, but quiet. The room was enormous. Although the bath was old, it was well functioning and large. The staff was very friendly. There was a nice little bar with complimentary port. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. The desk suggested a terrific restaurant. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent position on quiet street but just 50 meters from Avenida Libertade. Amazing king size bed with competing Marriot pillows and comfortness. We had a double room, very large, super clean. Excellent breakfast, great espresso coffee and english and continental breakfast. Reception and all staff very kind and helpful. Would definitively return.
