    Very good

    Excellent location in the city center.

    Unlike stated in the description, wireless internet is not available in any of the hotel rooms. The staff admitted that this is the case, but I was unable to reach the hotel manager to discuss this issue further. External phone calls were not working from the room either.

    Fabulous

    The location was great. Really near all transport options such as trams and trains to sightsee. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good location for the lively bairro alto area.

    Hard to have a lie in as it is on a noisy street. But to be expected with such a convenient location.

    Superb

    We liked the decor/colours and rather zany quotes all around the place. It was stylish and the staff very friendly and helpful.

    Superb

    We arrived very late and the signage of the hotel is non existent. TomTom does not recognize street number 3 so we put in Booked.net latitude and longitude co-ordinates and were directed incorrectly 1.9 away. At this point we decided to contact the hotel. The night recetion attendant Mario could not have been more helpful and when we arrived back at the area he was standing in the square about 50 meters from the hotel waiting for us to ensure we did not get lost again. All of the staff were excellent and the hotel is extremely well located, clean and very funky!!!

    Not that I didn't like anything, the hotel was great but be warned that it is in the smallest street in Lisbon and has no signage, and Booked.net coordinates are wrong and Tom Tom does not recognize street address number 3. Difficult to find when you have no idea where you are!!!

    The staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Nothing was a problem and they responded to any questions and requests we had in an extremely efficient, friendly and informative manner. Their knowledge about where to eat and how to get around Lisbon and the surronding areas such as Sintra, Cascais etc meant that we saved on tours and did everything ourselves with a minimum of fuss. I would highly recommend this hotel as the place to stay in Lisbon given the highly professional and postive approach, the central location and value for money.

    Superb

    Perfect location, reception staff were excellent- very friendly, always pleasant and welcoming and prepared to help with anything.

    Suggest perhaps a small chair in the room rather than needing to sit on bed all the time.

    The hotel's location is amazing.. Also the modern design of the rooms was very nice and the staff working were really helpful .. I am sure will stay again in this hotel if we go back to Lisbon

    the size of the rooms, ours was L and we GCC ppl are really used to big sizes, about myself i really hate small places and found category L acceptable and nice.. I do not recommend the S or M rooms.. Also the reception was very small and no enough waiting area but again that is nothing in comparison with the views, employees & rooms...

    Location can not be better. The S room was confortable for a couple. It was clean and nice furnished. Breakfast was superb. Frontdesk people very helpfull. We'll stay again and recomend it 100%.

    Very helpful and professional staff. Wonderful location. Great Bastardo Restaurant.

    The only problem is that in the middle of two nights we heard lots of bottles and plates making noise.

    Exclusive

    We liked everything during our stay, from our beautiful and colourful room to the delicious breakfast and of course the very helpful staff. Very good location, and, even if on a big square, it is very calm. We'll recommend it to all our friends and will definitly stay there again with pleasure.

    Fabulous

    Staff was very nice (especially the short haired lady): early check-in; welcome drinks voucher, printing of boarding tickets, fixed a broken light bulb within the same day, good directions/recommendation. Location is great - airport shuttle, taxi, metro, tram, dinner places, shops,... all just outside: as good as it gets. Breakfast room is nicely decorated and has a nice view. Good coffee served at breakfast. Room sound insulation from outside was good. Room nicely decorated. Good quality soap, shampoo etc.,... excellent shower pressure etc.

    Poor WiFi signal in my room (steady only in the bathroom). A bad smell in the bathroom. Bed is very small (1.20x.1.90 or so) and TV together with channel selection are inadequate (15 pixelized lousy channels on the smallest LCD I've ever seen). A bit overpriced for Portugal.

    The location was ideal, and from the hotel you are able to walk to tourist attractions.
