I booked this hotel on the internet based on the hotels own description however it left out a few things. Firstly it advertises it as having an international restaurant. When we visited the hotel it only had a breakfast area and there was no where to eat in the hotel in the evening. When I queried this at the front desk they said they had not had a restaurant for some time.Therefore this meant going out of the hotel and into Lisbon downtown area. Believe me you dont want to walk this area at night. It is full of drug pushers, prostitutes and down and outs as well as sinister looking groups of men hanging around at street corners. The 25 minute walk into town was terrifying. The subway is yards from the hotel and this is definately the best option as long as you travel back to the hotel by 10.00 pm otherwise you get the same sort of unsavoury people hanging around by the subway entrances. The rooms at the Almirante were clean but quite small. we had booked a double but were given a twin. When we complained they couldnt move us for the first night but did manage it the second night for the rest of our stay. The room always seemed very hot despite the aircon. It couldnt be turned up to much as it made a horrible rattling sound. The staff were very friendly and obliging but all in all I would not recommend this hotel.
