“Smarter than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and didn't have the highest of expectations due to unbelievable £60 a night room only deal I bagged several months ago. This is a very good hotel, friendly and helpful staff, clean, excellent location nr a metro stop and about 20 minute walk through the avenida to the old town. The room was HUGE with clean smart if a little dated decor, with a great bonus of a large balcony. We ate breakfast on our last morning and paid extra for this, had it been included we would have used every day, the food was of a good quality and a good choice,what would be expected of a 4* hotel. The only downside may be the lack of eateries near the hotel, it just requires a walk into town for the best choice. This was our 2nd visit to Lisbon, the first being our honeymoon 2 years ago and it did not disappoint even though we paid half the price or less than when we stayed at the CS vintage Lisboa. The only drawbacks are a very hard bed,ok for us as we prefer this, stained slightly musty corridors, out of action hot tub when we were there, overpriced bar drinks, and no iron or tea making facilities typical of European hotels. Please give this hotel a go, well recommend.

Room Tip: Request a room at the front of the hotel, back courtyard can be noisy.

Nicely located hotel with a good standard of room and general good service from the staff. Bar prices were quite high so we dined out rather than stay at the hotel itself. There's a very nice wee cafe just down the road which is worth a visit if you're on a budget.

Excellent hotel. Handily located near the metro for travel to and from the airport. The staff were friendly and efficient. We were upgraded to a suite with a lovely roof terrace and also given a complimentary bottle of fizz for my girlfriends birthday. I would definitely stay here again

Had a very good experience at this hotel. Excellent room, service and breakfast. The hotel is elegant and in a quiet and pleasant area although quite away from the city centre. Pleasant walk in to centre but we usually got the metro back. We found lots of good and reasonably priced restaurants locally as we couldn't be bothered to venture further afield! The hotel menu looked much more expensive so we didn't bother. If I was being picky I'd say I wasn't keen on the stained carpet in the bedroom and the breakfast room was too cramped which rather spoiled the notion of it being a former palace!

Nice hotel. Not quite 5 star but still very good. Comfortable rooms with all facilities but no tea and coffee. Drinks are so expensive compared with down the road. 2 small sparkling wines 18 euros and 6 euros for a beer . One street away 6 pints 10 euros.
Very friendly people. Also very nice breakfast which was included

My friend and I stayed here on a B&B basis for 3 nights in April 2014. And boy are we glad we did.

The room was great. Very comfortable and roomy and had a balcony overlooking the courtyard. The only drawback (and this is minor!) due to local laws no irons or kettles are allowed in the rooms.

The staff - quite possibly the best aspect of this hotel. All very friendly and obviously dedicated to providing the best service possible.

The food - on our last night we ate in the hotel restaurant. We wish we had song this every night. The food was delicious as was the wine. The waitress was lovely and gave us heartfelt and excellent advice regarding our choices. And fantastic value fir money!!

All in all if you have the opportunity to stay here grab it!!
