The good: large bedrooms for European standards, ok breakfast, near the bullfight ring that doubles as a shopping mall and restaurant center.
The bad: Internet: 1) 20 Euros per day. If they do this in 2011, they might as well charge additionally for electricity and running water. I bought online 1 week of access for 50 Euros (still ridiculous). 2) I reserved a tour at the front desk and the receptionist refused to give me a receipt. Basically I paid 120 Euros and he said the travel agency will know already that we had paid. This was true in the end, but common practice is giving a receipt after you take someone’s payment. 3) Another thing that struck me is that absolutely no toiletries are offered in the room; but you have to ask the receptionist if you need anything.
If I go back to Lisbon I will chose a hotel with smaller rooms, but free internet and closer to the center.
