Our group of 12 stayed here in October. It was a mixed bag. The rooms were small and the beds were not any where near as comfortable as the Vile Gale in Porto. The location is adequate - within long walking distance of Belem, but a cab ride everywhere else. The view of the bridge (not from my room, however) was very nice. The front desk staff was very accommodating and helpful. The bar staff, on the other hand, was disinterested and unavailable. You had to hunt them down or be prepared to wait for a long, long time. The breakfast was crowded with all the business travelers and tour groups, but decent and plentiful. The coffee was atrocious. I would look for a better option if staying in the city without transportation. There are certainly many decent hotels in better locations.
