Got a great deal on a 4 night break here. Just arrived home and looked at reviews. I speak as I find and having walked every inch of Lisbon in last few days I seriously doubt that a hotel is better situated.
OK we were lucky and were given room 412. Top floor corner room overlooking the square! Nothing wrong with the room at all. We are just normal people not stuck up or expecting the ritz when paying budget prices!
Room cleaned every day. Old TV but it had many English speaking channels so more important than a flat screen you can't understand!!
Breakfast was simple but fine. Plentiful and it did the job. Cheese ham pastries and bread etc.
Most of all the location is absolutely perfect. It is next door to great bar and you could literally spit into the entrance of the metro station baxia chiado. Of course we didn't but it was so convenient. Best area of town, safe with good atmosphere. Opposite good quality shops and 50 yards from shopping centre. The little square had all sorts going on and very interesting.
I guess it could be construed as a little noisy but we took it all as atmosphere. Those looking for complete silence would not want a road view room but we sought the city atmosphere and enjoyed it.
The city is lovely and the transport network is second to none. Metro as good as anywhere in world, little trams too and if you buy the top up card you get the lot for 6 euros for 24 hrs. Super value!!!! Don't bother with tours get the card and do it all by your own steam so easy! For shopping the Colombo mall at College on blue line is huge and has anything you could want.
Best top tip. Caiscas a little fishing town and marina is half an hour away on train from cais sodre station nearby. It is a lovely lovely little fishing village and the train costs 1.90e. So easy to get to from hotel it is not true and an absolutely lovely day out especially with the weather. You will not be disappointed and a nice change to the hustle and bustle of the city. Book up the hotel really is fine and ask for room 412!
