Having recently stayed here for business, I couldn’t help but think I was like a fish out of the water. This is definitely a romantic hotel, best enjoyed with your other half. The rooms are very cozy and although not very large, are extremely comfortable. It’s definitely worth going for the more expensive rooms as mine was a superior and I faced the yellow floodlit wall of the building next door. I’d presume even a partial view of the square would dramatically change things.
The location in the central old town square is perfect for bars and restaurants. Speaking of which, the hotel has two of the city’s best bars, and the rooftop bar should not be missed as it affords possibly one of the best views over Lisbon. The restaurant has good modern Portuguese food, although its prices are too high for Lisbon; atmosphere on a Tuesday night was non-existent. Other facilities include a small fitness centre and a massage room. Breakfast buffet was sumptuous with lots of fruits, juices and other options.
This is the most expensive hotel in Lisbon, and definitely oozes charm and sophistication. On the downside, this property caters exclusively for the "romantic" segment of the market. As such, they don't even have a business centre, although the staff kindly offered me to use the computer at reception.
