We've stayed here three times over three years and would do so again. Once for three days,twice as a one night stopover.
What you're getting is: 1.Great location. Right in city centre. Sights, shops, trams, buses, metro, restaurants, cafes... Within five minutes of main airport bus drop off. 2. Relatively quiet (unless you've very talkative neighbours) even though trams pass door. 3. Very clean 4. Cheap, particularly for location. 5. Generally helpful
Downsides 1. The lift (referred to in almost every report). I'm fairly fit but the stairs are a huff and puff 2. One or two have expressed concern over security in the area. It's a backstreet, yes, but scruffy rather than in any way threatening. Always people around and it's just 100 metres from main square. But I'm not a woman travelling
alone 3. Rooms vary. On a recent visit 301 had a bath the size of a large sink. a hold- it- over- your head shower with collapsing screen and a view over the backside of buildings. On our return trip room 307 had a spacious bathroom and a view up to the castle 4. I'm still spitting out the coffee we had at our last breakfast there. Maybe it's improved since then but there's plenty of top notch places to enjoy a proper Lisbon breakfast within five minutes.5. Was that drainage I could smell as I went upstairs?
