This place has a lot going for it. Located in a quiet part of Bairro Alto, all the hum and action of the neibourhood's nightlife is just a few streets away. Plus, it's walking distance to every other part of this truly great city. The rooms are stylish, the common areas downstairs are really lovely and interesting, the breakfasts generous, and the staff were helpful. I have just one sticking point, and I think we might have been unlucky to witness it, but nonetheless it kind of sullied an otherwise pleasant two night stay. On coming down the stairs one morning for breakfast, my teenage daughter and I saw and overheard a very loud and annoyed/angry exchange in Portuguese.It did not stop as we sat down to our breakfast, it just continued with no regard for our discomfort as the only other people in the room. A young staff member was being berated by someone we had not met (a senior staff member or owner perhaps?). I don't speak Portuguse so the content was not known to me, perhaps that's why it was considered OK to just keep at it. However, the tone was perfectly understandable. We found the whole thing very unprofessional whatever language or content was being spoken (surely a private time/space would have been better if words were needed), and the poor young staff member was visibly upset when alone with us afterwards. I liked it here, but certainly hope this kind of occurance was a one-off.
