We stayed for six nights in September in a standard room. The standard room was large and quite nice with a large bathroom. The rooms have large windows but seem to look over the top of the parking garage. Not sure why they didn't plant grass on top of the garage. The bath/shower has an awkward set up. It's difficult not to splash water on the bathroom floor.
The breakfast was just OK. We had to ask for the scrambled eggs to be replenished several times during our stay. We were able to fill up but it was underwhelming. One day the attendant was half an hour late setting up and we had to rush to catch a train.
Dinner was another story. The food was excellent. We ended up eating there 4 nights. If we had stayed in the main tourist area we would have ventured out more but once back in the hotel it was so easy just to walk downstairs. They have a system where you choose how much you pay for each dish. We usually paid close to the highest amount because we wre very happy with the meals and service. We were also impressed with the Portuguese wines offered. Very tasty.
Overall we enjoyed our stay. It was nice and quiet. Everyone was friendly although service could be improved at the front desk. We received some erroneous information regarding tourist sites and times. I found it easier to get the information myself. I usually used the computer in the lounge since it wasn't available in the room. Surprising since it's a new hotel.
One important note: The hotel is about 20 minutes from the main tourist area of Lisbon by train. That includes walking to the station. That may be important to you. We thought for the price it was a nice place to stay.
