We really enjoyed staying in this Hotel. The guys at the front desk is so helpful and very polite and they all speak very good English. Ask them to call you a taxi from the taxi stand they know. Rooms are big enough, bathroom is OK. We had our breakfast in the cafes on the other side of the road in front of the Hotel ( Avenida Duque D'Avila )(take the one on the right or walk 50 meters to the right and have a very nice breakfast at the Cafe Nicola.) (never the one on the left when you come out of the door). They all have very nice coffee (espresso or cafe com leite - with milk). Metro station Sao Sabestiao and Gulbenkian Museum is very close.
Ask taxi drivers to turn on the taxi meter for fare. From airport to the hotel is app. 10 euros.
Generally taxi is cheap in Lisbon, especially when you are 4 person travelling. We took taxi at least 10 times and only 1 was a cheating type. It was 9 PM, at the Rossio Square, he did not turn on the meter, and when we asked, he said 10 euros, but we insisted and managed to have the meter on. We warned him when he passed our route to our hotel. Finally when we reached the hotel the fare was not still 10 EUros (8.70) and we paid him Euros 6 because that was what we had been paying previous nights. He couldn't say anything when we said that we will complain and which we did afterwards. (Next day to the tourism bureau located very near to Restauradores Metro Station.
