Traditional building in a fairly quiet side street off the main avenue. Thoroughly modern interior, the rooms are well designed and perfectly suitable for a short break; limited clothes storage in a cupboard with door but no safe. TV has selection of english speaking channels. Bathroom of a reasonable size with liquid soap dispenser in shower and by handbasin - no other toiletries. Breakfast is continental style buffet (cereals, breads, cheese and ham) plus toaster but availability of boiled eggs as in other HIE would give a bit more variety. Sorry but the coffee dispensed from machines is not good at all! Breakfast is served in basement but clever lighting and decor lifts the atmosphere. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Travelled from airport by local airport bus 1, cheap (3.50 euros each, single) but very busy - suitcase soon buried under other travellers' luggage and a bit of a struggle to reach/retrieve. Return journey by taxi for 12.50 euros + tip, much more comfortable and quicker. This hotel is a recommended option.
As for Lisbon - a beautiful historic city with breathtaking plazas and cafes. The hotel is uphill from the centre, the pavements are very attractive to look at, mosaic designs in black and white, but uncomfortable to walk on for any length of time - bring comfortable shoes! Lovely riverfront.
