This place is located on a busy square in the center of Lisbon - great location - but it is so old and run-down, I don't think anyone should stay here, unless they only want the place for an hour. It has that hooker motel vibe to it. I actually hate to say this because the staff - there's one person at "reception" at all times - was mostly very kind and very helpful, as much as they could be. The rooms were clean but so old that the windows couldn't even close. The bathrooms feel like you've walked into a scary horror movie. The only good thing I can say is that the towels were unusually plush, especially for Europe. If you want to feel safe and if you want to get some sleep, this is NOT the "hotel" for you. I don't think it should even be called a hotel. It might rank as a "residencial" or some other category. The first room I was given, when I arrived late at night, was on a back street which was so noisy, I couldn't even sleep with earplugs in. The night guy was kind enough to offer me their only other room available, up a flight of windy, haunted-house stairs. He was right - it was "not fancy." I was basically in the attic with a tiny, maybe 1foot-by-1foot window that lead to the interior atrium - i.e., where every throws their trash. The smell of trash and the rampant mosquitos made me close the small window, which in turn made the room sweltering hot. My recommendation for staying in Spain or Portugal is: make sure there are air conditioners in the room, not because I'm spoiled and need a freezing cold room, but because if nothing else, you can avoid bugs and reduce noise (giving you just the white noise of the A/C).
