This new 7-story hotel is in a quiet area on the outskirts of Almada, across the river from Lisbon near the 25th of April Bridge. I stayed there because it was convenient to the university in Caparica where I was attending a conference, and also convenient to Lisbon -- thanks to a new tram line connecting Almada to ferries, trains, and points of interest.
My room had plenty of space and was in excellent condition. Furnishings were spare but entirely adequate, and the attractive price made the hotel a very good value overall. The breakfast in the hotel restaurant was ample and varied; free Wifi in my room worked fine.
Overall I can recommend this hotel for those who have business on the Almada side of the river, but want to cross into Lisbon occasionally. Train connections from the airport are complicated, but I found that a taxi did not take long and was reasonably priced (though you should ask your driver, as others at my conference reported higher prices).
