Had an excellent experience staying 4 nights at Olissippo Saldanha.
The hotel is impossibly clean. Rooms and washrooms are sparklingly clean. Lobby is very clean. Dining area for breakfast is very clean.
The rooms are modern and comfortable and the air conditioning works very well. The room safe, while expected to some degree, is none the less appreciated and allowed us to store valuables.
The staff are extremely pleasant yet professional. All front desk employees speak perfect English and are very helpful.
Lisbon is an eminently navigable city using it's modern and efficient metro and public transportation system. Barrio Alto and Alfama are about 10 minutes away from the hotel by subway. And the Saldanha subway stop is a mere 2 minute walk from the hotel. We much preferred staying in the Saldanha district in the modern, spacious, and clean Olissippo Saldanha than contend with a older, smaller, and potentially less clean room and facility in a hotel closer to Barrio Alto or Alfama.
Breakfast is good and had eggs, meats, cheese, yogurt, fruits and vegetables, breads, pastries, juices, coffee, etc.
We also liked the area around the hotel. It's a district with a lot of families and is also close to offices. We ate at two restaurants in the area -- Pavao and Amazonas. The meals we had at these two restaurants were better than what we had in the city centre and lower in price. These restaurants cater the neighborhood locals and consequently depend on their reputation. And reputation they deliver in spades.
We unreservedly recommend Olissippo Saldanha and would return in a heartbeat on our next trip to Lisbon.
A suggestion: The comforters/duvets are luxurious and first rate but a bit heavy for summer use. We found we had to lower the A/C temperature to offset the heat from the heavy comforter/duvet
