Get a CREAM Taxi from Airport metered at under 8 euros during the day. 20min drive. Arrive at hotel. bell boy takes your bags. All staff helpful & friendly. We were given a travelodge size twin room(beds pushed together).No tea making facilities(get this from the bar downstairs)(Mini Bar in cupboard & Rent-a-Safe in wardrobe) Currently building site over the street starts at 0730am until around 5pm Mon to Saturday. I found this to be a good alarm clock. Go for breakfast as early as you can. with 350 rooms & only around 75 tables. It can get busy.I usually went around 7.30 - 8am & walked straight in. I went in at 10am one day & had to wait around 10mins for a table. Breakfast is usual continental type of thing. Cheap ingredients though. Be warned, fatty bacon, tinned hot-dog sausages & scrambled egg for the hot, garlic sausage, ham, soft & processed cheeses, boiled eggs etc for the cold. The fruit was tinned fruit salad, tinned pineapple etc there was some fresh. We could not find any fresh milk for drinks in any restaurant, the norm appears to be UHT long life type of thing. Giving drinks an odd taste. As with any country, a little effort with language goes a long way, the staff here really open up if you make an effort. Pedro on the front desk is very helpful. The 8th floor restaurant is very nice, wonderful evening views of the old town & castle. BOOK EARLY. It gets very busy,(only around 17 tables) I suggest you request a table near the pianist(great views & he manages to drown the noise made by children & other loud travellers. very clean overall. There was also an armed policeman stood at the entrance the entire time we were there. 24hrs a day. Avis rent-a-car has an office next to the entrance & their cars are parked in the hotels secure car park. YOU NEED A CREDIT CARD TO BOOK A RENTAL CAR IN PORTUGAL. Debit card no good.
