“Location is great - Hotel is not”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: I'm not a fussy traveler and this is my first visit to Lisbon so I chose this hotel in mid-May because of its location, which turned out to be excellent. Metro entrance is just outside the front door (literally) and hotel is situated downtown-center, so it's within walking distance (1-6 blocks max) to many sites: including numerous restaurants; boutiques; pastry shops; Santa Justa elevator; Conserveria de Lisboa and waterfront. Ideal if you're limited by time, have children or limitations with mobility. I felt very safe during the day but the atmosphere changes at night like most city-centers with tourists: no less than three men approached me during my 7 min. walk home through crowds from a grocery store, asking if I wanted to buy drugs.

HOTEL: The major complaint I have is the air conditioning isn't working. I'm on the top floor (9) and the heat was over 30 Celsius (86F+) outside. The manager on duty gave me two options: move to a smaller room and lose the double bed (only twin beds left); or suck it up and wait until tomorrow because the weather should be cooler. I awoke to overcast grey skies and the room is cooler, so it appears that maybe he'd make a better weatherman. No A/C made the room, which is otherwise clean, a bit humid and carpet-smelly.

The room has a bit more than I would usually need: like a TV and bookshelf stereo unit. Tiny kitchenette is well stocked but there is no water in the fridge (they missed out on making a lot of money from me last night!) are there are no hangars in the closet - which is irritating. Small balcony is nice but the large ceramic tiles are in rough shape, some are missing. The website says there is no parking but I overheard another guest at the reception desk who made parking arrangements with this hotel. Internet is available but additional charge: up to 10 EURO for 24 hrs - or less amounts for fewer hours.

Coming to Lisbon not knowing what to expect, I'm happy with this location but I'm sure there are better hotel finds out there. Fortunately I don't spend much time in hotels!

The location is the best possible in Lisbon, right in the center, within short walking to most sites. The metro station is in front of the hotel. The rooftop terrace has a small pool and a spectacular view of the city. We didn't try breakfast because there are so many better options around. Rooms are ok, clean but nothing special. Almost all rooms face the grand Praca dos Restauradores with the Hard Rock Cafe on the opposite side. With the window open, it was a bit noisy at night. All the pros easily overweigh the cons, so we decided to stay in the same hotel on the return to Lisbon after visiting other places.

Room Tip: Each floor has one bigger room (facing the next building, Palacio Foz) and one smaller room (facing...

Wonderful size room, with a kitchenette, thou, the whole place doesn’t not look that clean.
Walking distance to all the shopping and train station is almost next to the hotel

The location is superb in the heart of Lisbon, close to most attractions and good views over the city. Rooms were fine and the kitchen well supplied with enough equipment for room rate. We had booker for three nights but had to stay another three. The roof top pool looked good but it was too cold to use it at this time of year. Lots of good restaurants in the nearby area. Parking at 20euros per day was quite expensive if you have a car, but then a car is not really needed.

Room Tip: A roof at the front of the buliding would give he best views over the city.

Clean and tidy but a bit worn/run down. Great location and friendly and helpful staff.
