This attractive hotel is located in a beautiful area on Avenida da Liberade, the major avenue that goes from the Marques de Pombal Square to the center of downtown Lisbon. It is a lovely, park like Avenue that is perfect for taking a leisurely stroll. It is a good 15 minute walk to down town, so you can't just pop out for shopping or dining. Most of the good restaurants are down town, though there are many upscale, designer stores only a 5 or 10 minute walk from the hotel.
The hotel is clean and modern and the staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. Our room was good sized, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom well stocked with amenities and a bidet. The included breakfast buffet was more fine, though not extraordinary.
We ate at the hotel restaurant one evening, which was mediocre. There are plenty of great restaurants in Lisbon, so I would skip this one. Also they were playing loud, annoying music in the restaurant, that they couldn't seem to turn down.
Overall, we found the hotel to be a wonderful place to stay. We would have preferred to be a little closer to town, but it still was still a fine location. Our only small complaint was that the hotel did not have enough umbrellas to provide guests on rainy days. We finally had to buy our own so we could walk in the rain.
