Everytime i take a shower i have water coming up my legs, the air cond doesnt work, the hotel looks old, far from metro,the bathroom looks like it came from 1950.. The only good thing that i could see was the service. Really nice people there but you can find that in an hostel too for sure.

This hotel has a four star rating but I'm pretty sure the manager must have taped the last three stars up there. This is a dingy, smokey, old fashioned hotel. The staff appear to be very unhappy in their roles. Everything you might expect from a four star hotel is available at an additional charge (e.g., breakfast, wifi, parking, the room safe). I felt like I was being nickled and dimed to death. The shower in my room did not work and while I was in the lobby asking about it three other patrons came to complain that their showers (2) or tv (1) did not work. The guy at the desk seemed positively peeved with me for telling him there was a problem with the shower. In the end, they did give me another, equally unpleasant room. Even though I was in the city for several days, I changed hotels after two night's stay. This place is a dump - there are much better options available.

Good value for your money, located in a residential area but near (10min walk) from a metro station, 3 stations from the centre.
It is clean and the service is good.
The smallest TV i ever saw in my life.

I stayed in this hotel 3 nights. It was just what I needed, the hotel is not in the center of the buzz but it is 10 minute walk to a central metro station which take 4 stops to be in the Buzz. I like to stay outside the noisy center but not too far. The hotel is 3 stars and this is what you will get, it is clean, close to the center and people who work in the hotel are nice people.

Yes, agree with other reviews that staff were nice, but actually all the Portuguese people are nice. Don't trust the description on the websites, is misleading.The hotel is definitely not a 4 stars! actually I would even hesitate to give it more than the lowest 3* level. I only stayed there because I pre-paid my stay and made a huge mistake using the lastminute website, where they charged me more few more euros than other webs or the hotel website itself. Actually I've realized that probably that's the hotel strategy, once you've prepaid the hotel there is no way to cancel unless you want to loose your money. The only plus to the hotel is that next door there is a supermarket to buy things! At the hotel you have to pay for everything, even an additional charge for the safe box in your room, yes, now I see why their slogan says "your home away home" or something similar. The TV was the smallest one that you can imagine (and of course very old!). Would I go back to the hotel? no, of course not. There are so many hotels in Lisbon. I regret not having read the reviews before hand.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in early November as part of a holiday package deal. It is conveniently located for bars and restaurants and very close to central Lisbon. The rooms were adequate, average size. The bathroom was dated and could use a revamp. We moved rooms as the ones facing the main road were a bit noisy. Internet access costs extra and breakfast was ordinary. The sofas and chairs in reception were shabby and dirty. On the other hand, staff was very friendly and helpful. Again, I think this hotel would fall into a 3 stars no-frills accommodation rather than a 4 star.

Normal Portuguese breakfast we ar in Portugual after all!! Only offer of scrambled eggs no other offered. Very polite staff. No internet conenction in the rooms even if yu have your iwn server. The raating for the hotel is certainly not a 4 star it shoud be a 2!! I stayed at the HOTEL DE CHILE 2 star it was much better value and the surprise!! was not wort the surprise pay and no refund.
