Smart hotel, centrally located
Smart, modern hotel, located within walking distance of many restaurants and only 20 mins or so from the Baixa area. Breakfast was a generous buffet with plenty of choice- two cereals, different types of bread, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages, cheese, ham, pastries and juices. Staff were constantly replensishing items and you could eat as much as you wanted. Rooms were very clean and we were given a free upgrade, perhaps because it was low season or maybe because we were celebrating a birthday; the hotel gave me a small bottle of port on my birthday which was a nice surprise. Anna, one of the receptionists, was a credit to the hotel. Always ready to answer our questions and proactively helpful, she was very patient and ready to assist us with our queries about the metro etc.
Our room was great and the shower was very powerful plenty of hot water. Air- conditioning was very effective and warmed upi the room very quickly; I'm sure the reverse would be true in the summer and that it would cool the room very well.
