I m part of a tour group from Singapore and getting a room in the evenings are always a welcome relief for the tired tourists. A great reception from the front desk as they helped my tour leader sort the rooms very quickly so we could all rest well. we had 2 days to stay here and we tried to... More

This hotel is situated beside the hertz rental office where we dropped off our car. We stayed one night and caught taxi to the airport in the morning. I had read reviews that advised the hotel was older, and it was, so was not too surprised. Bathroom was brightly lit, which I appreciated and the shower had good pressure and... More

This hotel is in a good location (near the Ritz) in Lisbon unless you want to get the airport bus and are dragging suitcases in which case it is a bit of an uphill climb over very uneven Portuguese stone pavements that kill your suitcase wheels. The hotel is within about 10-15 mins walking distance from the old historic centre... More

For what we paid and being able to book at such short notice following an air strike we really couldn't complain. The rooms were massive and had good facilities, however it was rather dated. The bed was really comfortable and allowed me to get a great nights sleep. The staff seemed a little formal, as if to suggest the hotel... More

You get what you pay for in life. If you want a 5 star, luxury hotel, don't book here. If you can see past the tiredness of the hotel, book it. The key for me is the location and this hotel is perfect. An easy walk into the city centre and an even easier walk to Baria Alto, about 15... More

The hotel maybe had 4 stars in the 1970s, but they did not renovate much since. The good thing is the breakfast, they have a self-serving buffet with lots of options. The bad thing was the general aspect (carpets with coffee stains, old furniture, slow and small elevators). Wi-fi was ok. A little bit overpriced for the quality. Location is... More
