The stylish interiors were great and I had the best night's sleep; the bed, pillows and linen were excellent. But. The door of the shower didn't close to the correct position, so it flooded the floor outside. (You don't expect to get in a shower and have to pay minute attention to closing the door properly, and I would guess it was only a centimetre off.) Similarly, the cold tap of the bidet leaked at the base, going onto the floor, so the very stylish bathroom was not without issues. The view from my (streetside) room was dismal, overlooking a ghastly modern building rather than pretty Bairro Alto houses, but it was quite a relief not to be overlooked by inhabited buildings as the gauze curtains and the bathroom blind didn't feel very private, and there were no shutters on the bathroom. The 'small' courtyard was the smallest I've ever seen, the depth of a small bistro table, enclosed by very high walls, so there was no incentive to sit outside. You have to ask for a TV to be in your room, ahead of time.The breakfast was ok, but in my other hotel (less than half the price) we had had croissants, so I was disappointed not to have them here. And the Wifi code I was given didn't work; I was assured that there was wifi on my floor (first floor; it's only available up to the first floor). It was my last night, and I didn't raise any of these issues with the staff, but I think they were fairly valid. The interiors are amazing, decor straight out of an interior design mag, but there were too many niggles for me to feel it was worth the money.
