Had a short vacation in Lisbon and we decided to stay at this hotel. It is convenient to the subway (5 minute walk) and several restaurants. I gave the property rating a 4 however, if 3.5 was available to select, I would have chosen 3.5. The staff at this hotel are wonderful and helpful in every way and they get 5 stars. The hotel is clean and the beds comfortable. The only negative of the room was that once again, the designer thought it would be a good idea to have the door to the bathroom made out of opaque glass and directly face the bed. This means of course, that anyone using the bathroom will unavoidably disturb others in the room with the light and etc. The breakfast which was included in our rate was good, though do not expect more than a basic European breakfast with limited offerings. We were scratching our heads a bit at the 4 start rating since there was no gym or pool, nor a mini-bar or a self-use business office.
There was a form dutifully placed in the room for the mini-bar but nothing in the little refrigerator. Anyway, we sort of laughed this off an there was an accommodating staff member in the lobby that would get us something from their small but adequate bar. I believe the prices here are worth considering (in terms of repeat visit) if we decide to visit Lisbon again. Our main concerns are cleanliness, comfortable beds and a safe neighborhood and they hit the mark here. The same type of hotels in the more popular Liberdade area are significantly pricier. And given the close proximity to the subway and lots of restaurants you can walk to, its a no-brainer for those who are cost-conscious travelers looking for value. Also, a short taxi ride from the airport or if you don't have a lot of luggage, you can take the subway.
