I'd been expecting to be underwhelmed by the size of our room, based on reviews here, but our superior room was actually a fine size for our four-night stay, plus it was nicely decorated and extremely clean. The room was surprisingly and blissfully quiet given the hotel's location right on the busy square (we actually faced the side street Flores ). The bathroom was large and featured beautiful yellow marble. There should have been more bathroom storage space, however.
The hotel's location is outstanding, especially if you plan on spending time in Bairro Alto and/or Chiado, which are pretty central for most tourists. Service was great, and the front-desk guys were jovial and fun. We used the ground-floor restaurant for breakfast only, which was fine but nothing spectacular. Didn't make it to the rooftop bar. The ground-floor bar has an odd split-level layout (which resulted in a bartender assuring us that he'd bring drinks to us upstairs and then forgetting us for a half-hour).
There were a handful of other minor service hiccups, plus the lobby is quite small and the check-in desk is tucked back in a corner hallway. But those are minor issues. We'd definitely stay here again on a future trip.
