I would like to make several comments about this hotel. First, the location was convenient for our needs as we had come to Lisbon for the Optimus Alive festival. A metro stop is just outside the hotel and we took this to the train and to our final destination of Algés. The breakfast is basic, fine for our needs, but if you require an elaborate selection I suggest you go elsewhere. I do have a complaint about the false advertising. The online photos are not accurate. Apparently they are simply the plans - for renovation. But there is NO GYM.This is listed, not only in the write up but there is a photo of the nonexistent fitness room. I chose this hotel based on this amenity and was quite disappointed there was no gym.
On the positive side, although not in the middle of things, this hotel was convenient for moving around Lisbon and the staff was friendly and competent. I must highlight one employee in particular who was extremely helpful throughout our stay. Roni checked us in upon our late arrival and was still working the following morning when my daughter and I had an issue with concert tickets in Lisbon. I was quite upset and although this had nothing to do with the hotel, he went out of his way to help us find a solution. And when I thanked him, he simply said, "I am just doing my job." I truly appreciated the help I received and for this reason alone I would return to this hotel.
