Reviewed 1 May 2014

The feel dated but it is not run down. There was a lot of noise coming from the hallway so it was hard to get a quiet night's sleep. Breakfast is included but will do everything but cheer you up. The hot food items were overcooked, the bread tasted like day old bread, the pastries were way too greasy, the fruit was sour and the milk was warm. The only edible thing was pineapple. You can get a better breakfast at McDonalds.

They do have one thing which is positive, free wifi without landing pages that actually works. That's the only reason they are getting three marks - I could work from my room.

Room Tip: Get a room as far away from the elevator as possible.

This hotel is easily the poorest 4 star hotel we have stayed at.Room tired and dated especially the bathroom.The maid service was substandard (room still not prepared at 17:00hrs).Basement dining room dark dingy with below pavement view of passersby watching you dine.We will not be recommending this hotel to any family or friends.

The rooms are really big and clean. The location is good, next to 2 malls e one supermarket. The breakfast is great, lots of options and at an extended time. No complaints whatsoever. If you intend to get the subeway, though, it might be troublesome, since it is a little far.

The hotel is very good situated, not far from the city center and the staff at the receptiondesk is very friendly and very helpful. The rooms are spacious, clean and the beds are good. The wifi is also very good and free. The staff at the breakfastroom is also very helpful, my friend had a gluten allergy and it was no problem for them, they gave her glutenfree bread and soyamilk every morning without extra charges. They also have a sushi restaurant in the hotel and a bar, with a lot of choices and possibilities. I would recommand it!

Very good price/quality ratio. Room att 11th floor was very big but also very out of date, at least 20 years old. Reception and lobby are really too dark, it seems to be in club. Breakfast really basic, good choice, tasteful fresh cakes and wonderful bread (like everywhere in Portugal) but horrible coffee, at least for me.
All in all I think I will return here but I'm willing to check for more modern rooms, if they have.

While not the most extravagant hotel, the service was exemplary and all staff were very friendly and willing to help.

The bar in the hotel, which is technically separate was also great.

The rooms were adequate with the appropriate facilities and very nice bedding.

Breakfast was varied and nice.

I've bin here with my girlfriend for a city trip although the hotel fits better for a business trip. We slept well, the personnel was friendly, rooms were clean. Breakfast ok, overall: Price-quality is good.
