We stayed here for 4 nights in 2 different rooms - the first had a shower but the door didn't close, the second had a faulty fuse box and the power kept shorting out (not fun when it is 36 degrees and you are trying to sleep). Promises to fix it were made but nothing was done. Other than that this is essentially an american 'box' hotel.
The hotel was easy to find (however it is still on the map as Holiday Inn) metro to Balhao and then 5 min down St Catherine St. It has an excellent position, San Bento train station dow one side and the funicular to the old town on the other and the hop on busses and the sightseeing tram stop practically outside.
The hotel is definately in need of serious maintainance. The area is also a bit run down with lots of empty buildings. If you need a grocery store there is one down the street to the right of the big church. Wifi is available but expensive. We were initially impressed with the number of languages spoken by the front desk staff but do now wonder exactly how much of what we said was actually understood.
On the whole not far from what we expected (except for the power outages) with reasonable breakfast. O'k for a couple of nights and not expensive.
