We spent 5 days at this traditional five star hotel for our first stay in Lisbon. As this was both a business and leisure trip we sought a full service hotel with a business center, easy access to room wifi, and the amenities of a resort. We were not disappointed on any count. While all the services and amenities were true five star quality, we particularly appreciated the helpfulness of the concierges, the delicious buffet breakfast (with choice of indoor or outdoor seating), the pool and its surrounding tropical gardens, and the spa (very clean, excellent massages). The only slight downside is the location of the hotel, which is situated in a residential area and requires either a walk to the tramway, a taxi, or a car in order to get to the main attractions, cafés or shops. While the valet parking is free and rapid, we ended up returning the rental car earlier as driving in Lisbon was not a real pleasure (narrow sloping streets). Getting around by taxi was very inexpensive compared to other European cities and the cab drivers were friendly. This hotel is an excellent choice if you are seeking a quiet and elegant hotel with full five star amenities. We saw a number of families too with impressively well behaved children!
