Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel to go to Optimus Alive, it was perfect for that as there is a shopping centre on top of the hill in walking distance that has a free bus too and from the festival. There is a bus stop right outside so you can get to Lisbon or to the train easily (not quickly though) the hotel staff and breakfast were great no complaints. Perfect hotel for the festival. And about $20-$30 to the airport

The hotel is perfect is you choose to go to the Optimus Alive music festival, it's only a few euros from the hotel to get there in a taxi, and the hotel is fresh clean and new, breakfast is also really nice.
Although, I probably wouldn't stay here when the music festival isn't on. It takes about 30/40 minutes to get to the beach after getting a taxi to the train station (Alges) and it's quite far out of central town.

Friendly hotel, a credit to the brand. Clean, comfortable rooms and good breakfast buffet.
We choose the location due to the proximity to Alges and the festival site we were attending and, whilst it can be a bit of a drag back up the hill at the end of the night, it's a good choice.

I stayed in the hotel this weekend gone with my boyfriend for optimus alive festival in Alges. While its not near the centre of lisbon it was great for going to the festival. We were lucky enough to get a corner room which was fantastic with lots of space and was really clean and well equipped. There was work going on outside the hotel but we there as no noise which interrupted sleep or anything.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly with all of the questions we had about getting in and out of the city and how to get to the sites etc. The breakfast was the only thing that was average but there were plenty choices and it was good to start the day. I would highly recommend staying here but probably not for going into the centre of lisbon every day however there are regular bus lines from outside if you dont mind the small commute :)

Room Tip: If a corner room is available then i would ask for one

Came for the Optimus Alive Festival in Alges. The staff were excellent and couldn't be more attentive and ordered us taxis to the festival site. Breakfast included was great and we slept very well each night! Excellent price for what you get! Will definitely be staying next year when we come back for the festival. The staff, particularly Claudio made our first time in Lisbon completely stress free and was happy to help! Excellent location for the festival, taxis to the site are around €5 and the hotel was really clean and tidy! No complaints here!

This hotel is located outside of Lisbon centre on a business park. We knew this when booking and had booked for its proximity to the Optimus alive site. That said, a 20 min walk downhill will take you to the tram where you get to central Lisbon and beyond. Despite building works outside the hotel we have slept well. The buffet continental breakfast is tasty and replenished regularly.

Just a few things to add to the title of the review.

It's surprisingly quiet for its location near a main traffic node. Managed to sleep well and comfortably.

If hiring a car or taking taxis, travel time is quite short from Airport or city centre alike, and parking is easy.

I was surprised to find that the pasteis de nata they serve at breakfast are better than the ones made by El Chique de Belem, an award-winning bakery. Overall, breakfast is varied and satisfiying:plenty of healthy options and indulgent treats.

Found it good value at €69 per room, per night.

Staff genuine, cheerful and efficient. Some of the youngest front desk staff falter little in languages other than Portuguese, but not so that it's a major disruption.

Given the industrial scenery and the comparatively inconvenient location if using public transport, it might not be ideal for holidaymakers, definitely better for work travel.
