The cost performance of staying at Hotel Alif was extremely nice. It is 30 seconds from the closest metro station. All the receptionists were very helpful and friendly. They did not hesitate to take extra miles to help their customers.
The room was sufficiently clean. Just minor cons are: the view was not good at all and there were not so many restaurants around the hotel. I could not control temperature of my room. It was really cold and I caught a cold. I set a/c at 25c, but it did not work. The walls seemed to be thin and I could hear neighbors' noises pretty much.
Overall, I was happy to stay at hotel Alif and do not hesitate to stay there again.
Brilliant location, very close to Metro and some very useful buses. Within easy reach of some good restaurants. Our twin room was narrow and had no table and only one chair, so felt rather cramped. However high standards of cleanliness everywhere. Cooked element of Breakfast buffet not so good but rest of range, breads, pastries, fresh fruits etc. much better, with great coffee. Staff attentive and quick to replenish dishes. Internet worked well, with p.c and printer available near reception. I had particularly liked the idea of the rooftop swimming pool! but it was entirely unheated and far too cold to swim even in a warmer Lisbon November. The sauna was freely available.
Two of us stayed here for three nights in early October 2015. A very good buffet breakfast was included in our tariff. Staff were all courteous, responsive and efficient. We loved the wonderful food and friendly, generous service in the coffee shop which serves dinners as well as light food. There is also a restaurant. We had a panoramic view of Lisbon from our top floor window. Our room was very large by European standards. Fixtures are a little dated but the décor is absolutely charming. Location is very convenient with two metro stations, the Gulbenkian Museum, Marques de Pombal Square and Prince Edward VII Park within easy walking distance. There is a small supermarket very close by as well as cafes and restaurants.
