Honestly, there's nothing I can complain about this place. Okay, the elevator is a bit slow and old, but that's about it.

The price is very reasonable when booked online, and when I tried to extend the stay I was given the same great rate. The rooms are clean and new, the staff is friendly. Location is great. It's right on the Marquês de Pombal Square, with the subway station just across the street, and buses around the corner (there is a bus that goes directly to Belem to the monastery and cafe). There is a bank for easy access to ATMs. If you like walking, downtown with all the shops and restaurants are just "down the street".

I also ate at the breakfast buffet at the restaurant and I'd say the selection is excellent. They have home-made yogurt in little cups, plenty of fruits, bread, eggs and meat, cereal... They have an array of delicious juicies too. Whatever your dietary preference may be, you will enjoy a good start of the day. The only disappointment is the cheese is very lackluster swiss, cheddar and the like, not the awesome, gooey soft Portuguese cheeses I've enjoyed elsewhere. Overall, it is better than many breakfast buffets I've tried in the U.S.

Will definitely stay here again on my next trip.

This is an old facility, not well mantained. The parking is underground and very tight and difficult to park or move.
Elevators and halla are stinky. Rooms are old and beds are not comfortable. Breakfast is low quality.

I would definetely not come back.

This hotel is very close to the "Marques do Pombal" subway station and in front of the "Marques do Pombal" square. Beyond that, it´s close too to Liberdade Avenue and Edward VII Park. It´s not really located in the old town, but you can walk to reach that about 30 minutes or take the subway. The staff is very attentive. They have a very good restaurant inside. The rooms are confortable, big and clean. I did not need to speak foreing language there, of course, because we brazilians are portuguese speakers, but, as I could see and listen, they all speak english, french or spanish. My family loved the place.

1 min away from the Marques Pombal train station. 5 min away from great clothes shops and 10 min from the Amoreiras (pretty big shopping center). We spent very few money to stay there for 4 nights. Breakfast was great! The only disadvantage: we did not find ANY (proper) good place to get lunch/dinner nearby, so we had to go further to the city center :(

We were at this hotel during Christmas, we were put on the 6 th floor, windows facing the back of marques de pombal, quite ok hotel, the breakfast staff was fantastic ( a lady and a guy, with always a smile on their lips. )
We had a bad experience on Christmas Eve, around 8 pm, we called down to room service for some toast, a lady answered, I asked if I could order some toast to the room, she answered ' ya' , then she hung up. We lost our appetite after that, my husband went down to the restaurant to check if it was possible to order the toasts, the staffs were very busy and took no notice of him standing at the bar, so we have not eaten at the hotel restaurant since. The staff seems to be polite but not very helpful ranging from reception to the restaurant staff( excepting the breakfast staff who were very friendly )
It started out badly in the first place, the hotel tried to take a prepayment for our booking, for some reason, the transaction did not went through, I got en email informing me that, I called reservation and gave them another card, it was ok, my card was charged , the next day, I got another email informing me that my card was invalid, I called them a couple of times, they did not answer, then I mailed back asking them what the problem was, I was given a tel nr to call, I called and the guy at the other end asked for my name, and said that the booking was ok and it was confirmed, I never got en explanation for that second email.
The location of this hotel is good, if u don't mind taking the metro, but for restaurants and night life, I would choose another hotel, .

Excelent room and bathroom. A little bit noisy room, face to Marques do Pombal Plaza. The breakfast buffet is very good, and cheap, i only had a compliain about the time we had to wait to have croissant, but the staff was really nice. We had metro in the other side of the hotel. The car park is a great choice if you go by car (9,50 day).

The hotel itself is very clean and well-furnished. On the small side, but I understand this is typical for Europe. The location is terrific! The metro station is right in front of the hotel and I found it to be a great way to get around. I've never seen such a clean subway system. Be sure to get the breakfast buffet when you book your room-it is well worth the money. Many, many hot and cold choices; a great way to start the day. There is free wi-fi in all the rooms and around the hotel. I did find the front-desk staff to be lacking, however, they are a very small part of the equation. For the money, the location, and the hotel atmosphere itself, it is a winner in my book. I would stay there again. Note to mgmt: SMILE occasionally. Be friendly. Let us know that you DO appreciate our business.

Room Tip: I had a room on the 4th floor, directly above the street, but traffic noise was not bothersome at al...
