The Marques De Pombal Hotel in Lisbon ticked all the boxes for us and we stayed there week commencing 11th March 2013. Check in was painless and we were allocated a room on the ninth floor with lovely views.
The breakfasts were good with plenty of choice however the breakfast dining room is quite small so it is important not to eat at peak breakfast seating times or you could be sharing your conversation with three other tables of complete strangers.
We did not eat dinner in the Hotel Restaurant so I can make no comment on that. Room service keep the rooms pristine and cannot be faulted.
The entrance to the Metro is about 20 metres from the Hotel front door and public transport is fun and inexpensive.
The only negative point I would highlight during our stay is that although we had paid for our accommodation in advance a male receptionist called Noel wanted to charge us again for our accommodation. We had gone to settle our bill the evening before departure and discovered the error. Our friend Noel who was a very superior sort of chap was having 'none of it' and decided to make an issue by closely scrutinizing all documentation and throwing various papers and corrospondances into waste paper bins with ardent enthusiasm and very bad grace. When I asked why we were being charged twice I was told "Is mistake". No apology just "is mistake". So watch your billing ladies and gentlemen!!
I would suggest that Noel is removed from front of house and given a job tha he is more suited to. Certainly not one dealing with the public.
Doing two falls two submissions or a knockout with Noel did in no way detract from the fun and enjoyment we had at the Hotel Marques De Pomba and if in Lisbon again would return. It is a very good hotel.
