I use tripadvisor to plan so was expecting the free port and custard tarts, on arrival, and the free minibar. The room was modern with an excellent shower, good TV and all the extras you like to have in a good hotel. Iron, ironing board, proper hair drier, plenty of quality toiletries. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was good.
We took advice on arrival at the airport and went upstairs to get a taxi. We got a taxi without queuing and paid 10 euro. We now know that we could have caught the yellow bus aerobus just next to the taxis. This would cost 3.50euro each but you can then use your ticket on the trams and if you have a 24h or 48h tour ticket the aerobus is free.
Returned yesterday from a one week solo stay at this hotel and do not hesitate to recommend it. Perfectly situated for walking the city, the shopping district, accessing the [Rossio] metro (direct line to Sintra - a day well spent) and a short stroll to the Bairro Alto nightlife. Restaurants, bakeries and cafes line the streets. The staff was friendly and helpful. Delightful rooftop seating area with a nice view of the city, river and Castelo Sai Jorge. Great spot for enjoying morning coffee. The rooms are modern (in design and decoration), clean and mine was very quiet.
Our apartment was at the heart of Baixa. Its a block from the metro and walking distance to major landmarks. Lot's of cafes, restaurants and shops in the area. Apartment was fresh, roomy, bright and quiet. We liked that it was recently refurbished; kitchen was modern with new appliances. It felt like home away from home.
We really enjoyed this hotel. The location was perfect. and the amenities were great. The staff at the front desk was most helpful in making excellent restaurant recommendations and reservations for us.
