"Nice hotel in quiet yet convenient area of Lisbon"
I would describe the hotel as styled shabby chic. The room furnishings were old solid dark wood so lots of character. Quite dark inside the hotel but in the heat that is often welcome. Large clean room, comfortable bed, plenty of sockets and decent wifi. The shower was hot and strong but a little unwieldy; I felt guilty for soaking the bathroom everyday! Breakfast was nice and plentiful. The staff were very friendly, helpful and mostly spoke excellent English. Although I didn't make enough use of it the hotel has an amazing courtyard area with beautiful plants - very pleasant for al fresco breakfast or relaxing at any time of day. Lots of steps so not the best for the less mobile (although porters are always on hand). All in all, I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend it.
We had a wonderful week in Lisbon. The front desk/consierge staff provided lots of helpful information on options for getting around, local restaurants, area tours and fado venues. They very cheerfully made reservations and arranged tickets and taxis for us.
I was a little nervous about going for this property which was located in a self-accessed block of apartments; as it turned out the process went really smoothly, the access code arriving on time and providing easy and efficient entry to both the block and individual room.
The entrance foyer was a little dark and the lift was not working on the day I arrived but otherwise public areas were fine; the room(s) more than met my expectations, providing a good-sized living area (including sofa bed), with kitchen and dining facilities, a very large bedroom, and acceptable bathroom - perhaps predictably the room which showed most sign of need of upkeep, but still entirely usable and always kept clean. There was also loads of storage space in the hall linking the three rooms together.
We had no contact with staff until the final morning when we left, when we bumped into the cleaning staff; but each day we were there beds were made up, bathroom cleaned and kitchen tidied most adequately.
The apartment was located in a lively street perfectly located for access to tram and bus links and metro terminus, and the rail line to local coastal resorts of Cascais and Estoril (as well as the major Belem tourist sites). It was also a short walk into the Baixa, Chiado and Alfama districts. Although well sound-proofed families with children may find the street a little noisy, music and dancing in local bars often continuing long into the night.
