Well I will start and say this is not a traditional hotel more a statement in style (not mine) and will not suit everybody. It is really easy to get to from the airport either via bus or metro and well situated in Saldanha near the Sheraton hotel tower.
Checkin was fine, just a little slow and lots of form filling but no Doubletree cookie. Room was on 6th floor overlooking the street and market. The hallway from the elevator to the room is not as drab as it appears in some photos. The room however is. The lighting is not great, an odd light hanging over the counter. A little seating area on the long counter with cushions ? The bathroom sink is too far from the mirror so you have to lean over it to see yourself. The tub is nice but there is no light over it so you cannot read while soaking. The only bathroom lights are by the sink, none in the toilet space except for a little backlighting. Shelf under the sink is too low down and the power point equally low down. The pole in the wardrobe was very high up so it was a bit of a stretch to reach the hangers.
The good points were the bed which was excellent, 2 bottles of complimentary still water and the room size which was quite big. The wifi was good and worked. There was 2 computers in the lobby to print your boarding pass.The breakfast was delicious and the ingredients all top notch, really great juicy orange quarters and fab crispy pastries. Even sparkling wine. The staff were all very nice and the bar opened till 1.
The 24 Lisbon day travel card is great value at 6.50eur You make an instant saving if you go up and down on the Gloria tram which would cost 3.50 e/w Do you to the quirkly Pavilho Chines bar not far from the top of the tram just past the wonderful views over the city.
