Be aware that this hotel has two distinct sides - the "Palace" which is approaching 5 star accommodations and the "addition" which is perhaps a 3 star. We booked a "suite" in order to accommodate 3 perrsons, but it was in the newer area which was very disappointing in terms of furnishings. The bathroom was beautiful, but bedding and overall ambiance of the room was not. The hotel staff was very professional, nice and helpful. Breakfast was included and was a delicious spread every morning. The hotel is near the Metro, but otherwise the neighborhood isn't all that quaint in terms of shops or cafes. I would recommend, but only if you know what to expect.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2010

We stayed here for 5 nights in early October. We chose it because of the positive reviews, great breakfasts and good location and we were not disapointed.
There is building work going on at the building next door but it did not affect us. The tube is only a couple of minutes walk away, trains are really frequent and reliable and day passes cheap and we found this an easy way to travel around the city.
Our room was clean and well laid out with plenty of storage space, but not especially plush. We found the bed firm but comfortable.
We had a great evening meal in the restaurant, and the waitress service was excellent. It was my husband's birthday while we were away, and we are usually on holiday for his birthday. That night we came back to our room to find a bottle of bubbly on ice with a small birthday cake and a candle! We hadn't told them it was his birthday, they must have seen from his passport, and none of the other hotels we have stayed at have done this, and we thought it was a really nice touch.
There was a wide selection of quality dishes for breakfast and we found the waiters, along with all the staff we interacted with at the hotel, really came accross as wanting to give us the best possible service at all times.
I would happily reccomend this hotel.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2010

We stayed at this hotel for three nights from 10th October. We had trouble finding it, as it was in a back street by Edward 7th park. The reception staff were lovely and checking in was easy. Their English was great, so they were really helpful during our stay.
We got to our room and found we had twin beds when we had booked double through Thomas Cook. The maid came up and pushed them together, which is what we could have done!!! We did expect the beds to be made up into a double with a double sheet and quilt beting put on the bed to make it more comfortable, but never mind got on with it.
The breakfast was alright, but the service was not so good and it took ages to get coffee. We had to ask about three times for coffee.
Location was good for the airport, shops and the metro. It was a bit of a way from the main attractions and the waterfront, but we like walking, so this did not bother us at all.
Overall, it was a lovely stay and would recommend the hotel and the city for a short break. The weather in October was nice, apart from a bit of rain when we first arrived.

I stayed at this hotel for one night in October. It's a nice place, large room, free internet, free use of jacuzzi, pleasant breakfast. The location is close to the centre but a bit of a walk from the tube which makes it feel like a bit of the distance. I'd agree with others that it doesn't quite feel like a 5*. There's a little bit of luxury missing from the room. The bed was quite hard and furnishings fairly basic and comparable to 3/4* hotels that I have stayed in.

We have been revisiting Lisbon and Real Palacio :-)

As always it was a pleasure!

The staff was as welcoming and service minded as the last time we visited :-)

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights this time as we spent the rest of our 1 week of holiday in one of the Real hotels in Albufeira.

We had a wonderful time both in Lisbon and in Albufeira :-)

We will be back!

This is not a 5 star hotel but other than that it is a clean friendly hotel that is close to the city by Metro. The rooms are clean and the have a good selection of English speaking channels. The breakfast in the morning is that of most European hotels (Cold meats,Cheese, small fry,etc..) but there is plenty there and you won't leave hungry.
I didn't have a drink in the hotel as I had read reviews about the prices in the bar, having said that I didn't go to Lisbon just to sit in the hotel and a couple of stops on the Metro and I was in the heart of the city.
Lisbon itself is a beautiful city to visit and this hotel is a great spot to view it from but I agree with the last reviewer as long as your not paying to much for the hotel than pick this hotel. This is a 4 star hotel at best but it is a very nice 4 star, it is not in the best area in the city but it is quite area and it is yards from the Metro giving access to the whole city. I would love to stay here again and if I am in Lisbon again this will be the first hotel I look for.
