This hotel is situated between the airport and Lisbon centre in a quiet location. The staff are all friendly, very helpful and polite and speak English. The rooms vary quite a bit in size and quality, but all of the hotel is very clean and tidy. The rooms on the inside or back of the hotel do not have much natural light or any kind of view, but that isn't much of a problem if you are going to be out most of the day. We stayed an extra week there during the recent flight disruptions and the staff were very supportive and sorted out rooms for us and made sure we weren't moved around. The breakfast is fairly standard with breads, cereals, cheese, ham & other spreads as well as tea, coffee and cold drinks. If you arrive in Lisbon early, the hotel will ask you to leave your luggage in their locked room and return to check in after 2pm as their check out time is Midday. This hotel is not quite where Google Earth says it is, so the best way into town is either the bus that leaves from outside the front of the hotel or walk to Picoas metro station - turn left out of the hotel & walk for about 10 minutes. Public transport is cheap in Lisbon, get a green card from the metro station and charge it for the number of days you need, or get a travel card from a post office. The card will get you onto the metro, busses and trams as well as the funiculars and street lift. Food is difficult in Portugal for vegetarians, but there are some good Italian and Asian restaurants in Lisbon that do good food at reasonable prices. If you have time, take a train to Sintra, it is very picturesque, but make sure the weather is good!
