For a stay outside the city centre this is a good option. You get slightly more than value for money all round. It is in a quiet street but only 5 minutes walk to three metro lines (Sao Sebastio and Picoas) very close to a well stocked supermarket, and a reasonable if long walk from city centre.
The bed is not as hard as some reviews suggest but is probably not 5 star quality either. The hotel does take low cost means to provide a 5 star range and that's reflected in the price the visitor pays.Effort is made to provide a good range of facilities and maintain it.
Most things with this hotel are on the small side, I like that but it could give a feel of overcrowding at times. Staff should be more welcoming to solo travellers. Breakfast seating's cosy at best, overcrowded at worst and the staff really put their effort into fast turnaround! The restaurant evening food is somewhat pricey, but it is good so if you are on a budget it is worth having as a treat.
The supermarket sells great bottles of wine cheaper than one glass costs in the hotel! I think the lack of tea and coffee making facilities is a bit tight, that would make a big difference.
Heating is done by air con, I'm not keen on that.
I like the ambition and effort made, it worked for me and I'd stay here again. I would not recommend to people who are used to staying in 5 star though, this is a budget friendly option
