We don't usually stay in "chain hotels" but made an exception here.
First the location could not be beat.....close to all the neighborhoods and you can walk to all the sites in Baixa, Barrio Alto, the Alfama and Chiado.
The staff is the best....made us feel special and helpful with recommendations and tips on directions....those serving breakfast mirrored those in the front of the house.
Breakfast cannot be beat....something for every taste and quite nicely presented. Tough to stay away from the Left side of the buffet.....plenty to eat and drink and replenished frequently.
Rooms are sort of what is expected at most hotels in Europe...small but manageble. TA few funny things about the rooms....the thermostat cannot be turned lower than 17C.....which made the room a bit warm......As noted in another review the towel rack in the shower area is almost at the ceiling...and two towels are looped over each other. You cannot get one down with out the other.....and there is no exhaust fan in the bathroom which gets steamed up pretty quickly.....rooms were spotless and kept that way too.They have two elevators as they took over two buildings and one is in the front and one towards the restaurant....
At 6.00 PM they put out a local wine with the delightful pastery they are known for...Pastels......we may have missed one night of this treat.
Overall a great choice for a stay in Lisbon. We hope to return and this is where we will stay.
