We had a standard double room in this hotel between 15-18.07.2012. We chose this hotel based on location and other travelers' reviews and it proved to be a very good choice.
Location: perfect for touristic attractions, metro station just in front of the hotel, as well as bus stations. Touristic bus (Gray Line) within few hundreds meters, just in the centre of Marques de Pombal market. Tickets for hop-on/ hop-off can be bought from the hotel too (two circuits for 15 euro, valid for 2 days). However, I prefer Yellow Line which leaves from Praca da Figuiera.
Avenida da Liberdade, Bairro Alto etc can be easily done on foot. If you rent a car as we did, there are parking spaces nearby, we paid around 1 euro for a night. There is also a supermarket few minutes walking, the reception can guide you.
Rooms: pleasant and very clean, though a little small for a 4 star hotel. Our room looked over an interior courtyard and we had silence, though not a beautiful view.
Breakfast: excellent variety of fresh fruit and a selection of everything usual (cheese, cold meats etc), except for vegetables. Appreciated a lot that when we asked for vegetables, they promptly delivered them and remembered our preference for the next days.
Breakfast room very clean an organized, helpful staff, most of them speaking English.
Check-in/ check out: check in took a litte more because they couldn't find easily our reservation, but afterwards everything went smoothly. We were able to make an early check-in, but we mentioned it in advance. Check out was straight forward and we could use their luggage room.
The reception personnel, especially the ladies, made a very good impression on me. They were very available and open, helping us a lot with all kind of information, as well as with renting a car. They speak fluently several foreign languages (English, French, Spanish etc). Congratulations for the way you manage to make everybody feeling welcome!
