We travel a lot and we have never experienced anything like we have in Marques de Pombal hotel.I mean it in a bad way of course!
Me and my wife stayed in Algarve for two weeks but we decided to go to Lisbon for a wee trip(12th-13th of June).It happened that my wife forgot to take her ID to Lisbon.
At first unpleasant and cocky boy at the reception refused us to check in so basically my wife was going to sleep on the street.I asked him if he could contact our hotel in Albufeira to get a copy of her passport(email,fax) but he replied that I can do it myself if I want.Just to add that I had my passport and the room was booked under my name.Finally we were able to stay there.I wish I never booked this hotel anyway...
I would advise anybody thinking to stay here consider a different hotel or B&B when you can feel welcomed as a guest.Portuguese are lovely people apart from the staff in Marques de Pombal.
Maybe it's a good place for a businessman but for any tourist it should be the last place to stay in Lisbon...
