This is a pretty standard, reasonably modern hotel. But it is remote and located in an unattractive area of the city. It was a minimum 25 minute walk to anything of interest to us. Supposed to have in-room WiFi but only worked in the bathroom, when it worked at all. Hot water supply was spotty. Might be OK for business... More

This hotel was part of our travel package. It was dated, clean,but the staff was not so nice. The hot water worked sometimes and the wifi was mostly non-functional. The pillows were little pieces of foam stuffed into a case, very lumpy. We saw much nicer hotels in the area. Go stay at the Azor Hotel instead.

Breakfast is not bad but very much the same everyday. Front desk is fairly helpful. Bed is not too comfortable. Shower pressure is excellent. Room size is very good, with a desk. No A/C in the room but for November it's OK. Very good view at the front of the hotel.

Lince is a ten minute walk from downtown, but very pleasant along a broad avenue that rings of Rio. Service is good, staff very pleasant and the rooms appear to have been recently redone in a pleasant Scandanavian, understated style. The included breakfast is ample, both choice and variety. Well deserving of consideration and well up our list for repeat... More

We checked into the Lince Azores on Saturday November 19th as part of a package deal which had us staying 4 nights. Upon pulling up to the hotel we were shocked to find it was in the middle of no where...not close to anything. The hotel was set in a residential area. We did not want to end our vacation... More

This hotel is dated, not particularly clean and the service was poor. The building is beautiful from the outside, but once in the lobby you'll notice the dated look. Once in your room you'll notice the lack of cleanliness. The chairs in our room were dirty and stained so badly I ended up moving them to the corner so we... More

Best part of this hotel was location to highway and being able to walk to town centre. Car parking was very convenient located in garage under hotel, the hotel was average with clean rooms and pleasant staff, the internet was a bit weak and at sometime not available at all, restaurant was a bit expensive for what you got. Also,... More

Room was fine, clean and roomy, lighting in the room was not good. The bathroom was large and clean, but the lighting there was impossible. A lady certainly couldn't apply makeup in there, Dove handsoap dispensers on the wall by the sink & in the shower, but no other amenities supplied. Television had an incredible number of channels. Wifi was... More

Good location, especially for walkers. Decent rooms and breakfast. Front desk staff arranged tours and made restaurant reservations, which were often necessary. Make sure you take the stroll down the hill and left to Gastronoma.....great seafood restaurant. Across the street and uphill 1/2 a block is a well-stocked little grocery with excellent cheese and plenty of Portugese wine.
