Located a block behind Avenida Liberdad, the hotel is close enough to the heart of Baixa to be convenient but far enough away to be quiet at night. The building itself is impressive, dating from the mid-nineteen forties and designed by the architect of the Eden cinema. The modernist style has been reflected in the fixtures, fittings and furniture of the hotel: chunky wood chairs and tables and dramatic brass and chrome light fittings. Other features of interest include a restored barber's shop (to the right of the lift in the main lobby) which feels as though the barber and his clients have just stepped outside for a moment, leaving scissors on the couter and hats on the rack. Our (superior) room was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and, despite facing the street, extremely quiet: partly good double glazing, partly because it's a quiet neighbourhood. Staff extremely helpful and firendly. Very good breakfast: smoked ham, scrambled eggs, mushrooms, spinach balls on the hot buffet, fresh squeezed orange juice, excellent fruit salad and strawberries. As you would expect too, very very good coffee. No dinner service but Rubro, a Spanish restaurant, is almost next door (turn left out of the hotel entrance and go past the Pharmacia) serving high quality tapas and more.
