While most guests would rave about the superb location, the reasonable prices and size of the rooms, personally I was very impressed with the Hollywood glamour and retro design of this place. The lobby is decorated like an old Tango Barrio, with the floor in checkered black and white with a white grand piano in the middle and the stairs with classic banisters to the left (think Breakfast in Tiffany's).
The lifts are decorated with huge posters of Audrey Hepburn (who else!) and Humphrey Bogart. As you take the lifts to the room, one can tell that the building (and the lifts) belong to a different era but they have been very well maintained and preserved. The rooms facing the front entrance are all extremely large and large windows overlooking the street, if one were to leave the windows open, it may be a little noisy. The rooms all have individual classic Hollywood cinema theme. The rooms towards the back have either limited view or overlook a small courtyard. The rooms are generally clean and the bathrooms are in good condition.
The breakfast is good with a wide selection of food and drinks. The break fast area overlooks the Marques de Pombal Square and in a good day (which is very often in Lisbon), one can just sit there and watch the world go by.
The hotel staff are very helpful. They provided free maps, gave a few pointers on the places around the area and helped with arranging for taxis.
