This is one of the stranger hotels we have stayed in and although we enjoyed it, it certainly won't be to everyone's taste. Our room was on the top floor, which only has rooms on one side and the hallway felt like the boarding ramp to an airplane. The room itself had a funky design that is more about look than practicality. Black paint and limited lighting (although the bathtub lights up) creates a rather gloomy atmosphere if the sun isn't shining. The balcony was nice, allowing us to have a cocktail and enjoy some afternoon sun.
The staff were friendly and helpful, especially Marta on the front desk who couldn't have been nicer. She was terrific. The location is in the Saldanha district, too far for a comfortable walk to Rossio Square but a cab ride there is only 5 euros. Overall the hotel has sacrificed comfort for design and overall I think travellers would prefer a little more of the former.
