We had a lovely stay. The room, the nice pool-area, the service, everything was top notch. The location could be better but if you are looking for a calm and relaxing stay, this is the place.

Stayed for two nights, very impressive hotel, we had a room on the top floor in the older part of the hotel and had a view of the bay from a tiny balcony. Lower rooms will have a view of the garden. Excellent pool area and we had lunch there which was again excellent. Breakfast was good but dont think they had fresh orange juice as standard choice which was unbelievable for a hotel of this class and price. However, staff were great and room was exceptional. Beware that Lisbon is very hilly and what seems like a good idea going down is not so good when you have to walk back--you will need a taxi for almost any trip outside the hotel--good restaurant recommendation from hotel--Aqui ha peixe lisboa--mainly fish resonable price dont be put off by outside appearance.

We stayed here as a family of five (three kids, two adults) and the two rooms we booked were faultless. Very spacious, with luxuries such as a pillow menu and L'Occitane toiletries. The maids cleaned several times a day and the attention to detail was impeccable. All the staff were friendly and polite, and breakfast was fantastic! The gym, indoor swimming pool, outdoor swimming pool and spa were very luxurious and again immaculate. All in all a lovely hotel! Shame about the price!

On a business trip in february, so we got extremelly attractive rates while the hotel was half empty. nice to have a beer in the sun while it was snowing in my country! Service was of course very helpfull (...as we were not a lot of guests). Inside and outside pool are very nice, with superbe gardens. Restaurant was good, but why do they need to have kitschy elevator music been played. Fitness a complete shame for a "palace": small room, out of order engines. A shame

This is a magnificent building. it was an old palace and when you enter the courtyard it excites you with its elegance. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with everything you could want. The service is faultless. The gentlemen at the desk are extrememly helpful and can satisfy any whim. The complimentary breakfast is outstanding and the grounds are beautiful. There is a terrific pool and a spa which is small but very personal. On the main floor there is an intimate bar with a wonderful piano
player. In short we were very happy with our visit..
