The Hotel Miraparque was a lovely surprise. It is almost like time stood still with an attentive, extremely polite staff (including a concierge and wait staff in the restaurant dressed in tuxedos). The hotel reminds me of the original Queen Mary cruise ship that is now docked in Long Beach, California. It still has the original decor (lots of dark wood, brass, exquisite appointments). The Miraparque must have been the grand hotel in the area in its day (besides the nearby Ritz).
I highly recommend dining in the hotel's dining room. The food and the service are exceptional and very reasonably priced (the best in the surrounding area, I think). The two waiters (I didn't get the elderly gentleman's name - and another waiter, Jose) were supremely attentive, polite, charming and professional. We couldn't wait to get back to the hotel for the dinner, alone! The included morning breakfast is superb as well - a buffet of many hot foods and great coffee.
Rooms were clean and had a good amount of towels and built-in soaps. Lovely.
Front desk was professional and helpful. When it was time to leave, the concierge personally called out for the taxi and put our luggage in the car. Very nice.
The Metro and buses are easily accessible via a short walk. Wear flat shoes though, as Lisbon's sidewalks are made from pieces of marble and can be slippery. The hotel itself sits at the top of a hill.
You will enjoy your stay at the Hotel Miraparque and will remember it for many years to come.
