I am on the fence about this hotel. I think had we not stayed on the 2nd floor (1st floor of rooms) I may have liked it better. And if the heater had worked better in our room I may have been more excited about this place. It just happened to be our heater that was weak, and they were at full occupancy while we were there so we did not change rooms.
The location is extremely convenient. A very short walk to the Rossio metro. Several bus and trolley stops all within a very short walk. Lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance.
I found the staff to be nice and helpful.
There is not an elevator for the 1st 2 floors. If you travel with a lot and/or heavy luggage you will need to carry up 2 flights of steps.
Breakfast was included, basic but quite a few choices of breads, cereals, cheeses, meats, yogurt, coffee and tea.
The rooms are very minimal. Good size room and bathrooms. The beds are old and worn, same with the bath towels and the pillows.
Some of the rooms do have some pretty views depending on what floor you are on.
We stayed on the 2nd floor (1st floor of rooms), and it was very loud.
At different times of the day the sewer smell in our room was quite strong.
The breakfast room is on the same floor and in the mornings the dishes clanking and the guests walking/talking up and down the hall is very loud.
The rooms are the hotel itself were very clean. There is a little bar/coffee area near the desk checkin. The wifi worked in our room but did not work in different parts of the hotel. There is a computer with internet for use near the check in desk.
With all that said, the hotel is in such a convenient spot, and the staff friendly.
The location may outweigh all the other nit picky points.
