We stayed at the Marques Pombal in November 2011. I would classify it as a business-traveller centric hotel. The staff was pleasant and helpful, especially at the reception.
Our rooms were modern, clean, and of average size, with comfortable beds, although the bathrooms were on the small side. The windows could be opened, which is rare and a treat! Despite its location on a busy street, it is still fairly quiet. The hotel offered free Wi-Fi, although it timed out quickly, which was a tad annoying. The breakfast room is in the basement and is quite small. The food is basic and below average (for this class of hotel and compared to other breakfasts we’ve had across the country).
The hotel has a nice bar but service can be spotty (you often have to go up to the bar and order your drinks, even when it’s not busy and there are plenty of waiters).
The hotel is about a 15-minute walk to Baixa (lower town) and there is a metro/subway stop right in front of the hotel (24-hour passes are great value and can be used on buses and trams also).
Overall, this hotel offered good value for money.
