I must say I was very pleased with this hotel, and most important, with the staff. Knowing Portuguese culture and the common Portuguese behaviour towards guests, this hotel was on of the hotels that most impressed me! Everybody is willing to make your day a very pleasant experience, and the constant smile and comfort transmitted by the staff is really a milestone that lots of hotels still lack to achieve.
All facilities such as the rooms, the lobby, the breakfast lounge among others look really comfortable and updated, very "business" oriented coziness and most important, a very good location especially for those who are about to stay in this area of Lisbon. Accesses and restaurants are very very close, and the view can literally surprise You.
I just have one small comment regarding Internet: Knowing that Denmark provides wi-fi Internet wherever You go, and actually free of charge, being in this "business segmented" hotel without free of charge Internet made me a bit confused. I had to ask several times to 're-charge' my hourly access to the Internet. Something that can be really strange for guests that are used to be offered Internet for free. But it seems that in Portugal this arrangement is very common. In what concerns the breakfast, I must say it is very good. Not the best, but as You might experience, a very diverse menu, with several types of cold and hot dishes, ready to make your beginning of the day extremely motivating!
As told before, what amazed me most was the staff´s willing to give us the best service. I could notice that plenty of times! Thanks for that guys.
