We stayed here in February 2014 and have to say this is a 5 star hotel which definately deserves them all - based on the hotel itself and the staff who were ALL very friendly and helpful.
It's nicely positioned off of the main road about five minutes walk from the metro station (south exit - El Corte Ingles). You can catch the metro straight from the airport to the last stop on the red line (S Sabatiao). The journey from the airport to the hotel stop takes approximately 20 minutes. You purchase travel cards at the Metro on which you can "top up" for a day or more travelling.
We were lucky enough to get upgraded to a room in the old palace part of the hotel which enhanced our stay! Our room was very nice and grand. Our friends had a suite in the newer part of the hotel comprising of bedroom, sitting room bathroom and two terreaces which looked over the roof tops of Lisbon. The bedrooms are of a good size, very clean and nicely appointed. The beds are quite firm, but that wasn't an issue for us. Good bathroom facilities - decent shower with good pressure.The bar and restaurant are very relaxed and there's great choice for breakfast from cereals, sausages, bacon, scrambled egg, etc to cakes and pancakes and maple syrup. You can also get a decent cup of coffee (which is generally not the case at many hotels). The breakfast room does get very busy, so recommend you get there early or late. No shortage of servings, but can be a bit of a hustle-bustle, however the staff were very helpful and promptly at replenishing any items which run out.
There is a shopping centre and supermarket only a short walk from the hotel and the Columbo Shopping Centre is located at the 'Orient' metro stop.
If you fancy eating out of the hotel, but do not want to stray too far, there is a nice restaurant literally over the road on the corner, while up the road along Rua Tomas Ribeiro across from the hotel and turning right into Rua Tomas Ribeiro, there is an all you can eat chinese buffet for eight euros.
The hotel is lovely, the staff are friendly and helpful and yet relaxed enough to have a laugh and a joke. We had a great stay and would recommend staying at the Real Palacio and would definitely stay there again - thank you for making our visit to Lisbon even more special for us
