This is a great hotel for location and value in Lisbon. It is a five minute walk to the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian and the metro station is just steps from the lobby. One thing I noticed about the metro station, although the subway runs later, this entrance seems to close earlier then others; we noticed this on three evenings when we returned by cab to the hotel. I suggest if you are later then 10:00 PM, the gates from the station may be closed so return via a cab from downtown, it isn’t very expensive in my opinion.
Although the hotel was easy to find with our GPS, the garage is not. Best to pull into the hotel, and if you miss the entrance, there is a parking lot a few yards away to pull into. You will need to go to the front desk and get a porter to drive with you to guide you to the parking entrance, and if space is available it is free of charge.
It is modern and clean, my only concern with the room would for couples with small children as the window opens up and there is no screen or barrier. An unwatched child could potentially climb out and fall.
One con for the hotel is that there isn’t really a bar; the lounge, which is situated adjoining the dining room was taken over regularly by the dining room for extra seating and the couches were pushed into the lobby in front of the doors, not a very relaxing atmosphere.
The restaurant is fine, and there isn’t a lot of choice in the neighbourhood; so if you want something more fancy you are best to find a place downtown and make a reservation.
I think this is a good hotel and I would go there again, just for the closeness of the Gulbenkian alone.
