Rooms are extremely comfortable with huge closets, cozy bed linens and comforters, and CLEAN carpeted floors! (So often in Europe, I find clean rooms with 'nasty' carpets!!) TV, Room Service and Telephone services at their best, of course!
The view from your room's private balcony, as you look out on the bustling city of Lisbon is magnificent--but the traffic tells you 'Terribly crowded, do not drive here!'
The rooms are 'more than just comfortable'. Every effort has been made to make your stay pleasurable.
Tour services are available in the hotel. Many tours start here and arrangements for other tours are readily available. The hotel has a comfortable bar where you can order light meals and snacks. We did not have the opportunity to try the hotel's restaurant.
An extremely pleasant stay....All of our needs were met. Cab service is available to and from the hotel--normal charges apply.
NOTE--This is a wonderful hotel!!! However, you will find mostly British and Americans in this hotel. If you are looking for an opportunity to meet and mix with locals -- this is not the place! Hotel staff all speak English very well and you will have no language problem. A magnificent stay if you want or need some luxury!
