Could be the Perfect Spot - just a few hiccups
The Vila Gale Opera was ideal for my business trip as it was in walking distance to the Lisboa Congress Center and also a cool 15 mins walk to the shopping area. The food was yummy - having an open buffet had lots of options. The staff was friendly and accommodating. There are a few negatives that caused me to not have an excellent experience: - the hotel has no irons in the rooms - apparently there was an electrical fire a few years ago and so the hotel changed their policy and chose not to have irons in any of the rooms. You have to use laundry service to iron your clothes and it's not free. Additionally, there is a 48 hour advanced notice to be given to Laundry service otherwise you have to pay an additional 50% of the total cost of the fee to have express service. I was very bothered by that as my meeting started the next day and so I had to pay the extra for express service to have all my clothes ironed. This is something that guests should be aware up front - I packed for 4 days in a carry on. I definitely needed to have the wrinkles removed before attending my meetings. - the hotel was fully booked and ran out of adapters - I had to make the 15 min trek to find a store selling them. It was an inconvenience as I was bone tired and needed to do last min prep for my first meeting. - the air conditioner dripped water constantly such that I had to use one of the bath towels to keep the floor dry.
