We stayed at this hotel from 2 to 9 July 2011. The location is central. Parque metro station is just round the corner but walking into the city centre (Rossio) is also possible without any problem. We had a lovely room (608) overlooking the Eduardo VII park across the street. This had been requested when making the booking and our wish was fulfilled. All the hotel staff were friendly. Our especial thanks go to Samuel on the reception desk, who gave good assistance with a medical emergency at the crack of dawn one morning. Our room was clean, good size and the air conditioning worked quietly. There is a good choice at breakfast, with hot and cold buffet available included in the room price. For those who complain about machine coffee and tea, the plus side is that you can have as much as you want without having to wait; personally I found it was quite good coffee. Dinner in the hotel restaurant is fine, with good attentive service. Close by eateries outside include the Sapore restaurant just down the hill (the second one you come to) which has good food at a reasonable price.
The only rip off we experienced in Lisbon was our taxi in from the airport, whose driver charged us three times the correct fare. I found out later it should be about €12. The taxi was in official colours (black and green) but had no meter visible. Not all taxi drivers in Lisbon are dishonest though, as we discovered later. Moral: be certain to check for a meter prior to setting off.
