For someone who travels a lot it is not often that I am surprised by a hotel. The Valverde is about as good as a European hotel can get. While I was in a suite, all of the rooms were large and very well appointed. The food was outstanding, and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. And you cannot beat the location in the heart of Lisbon.
However, what really sets this hotel apart is the service. I have rarely seen a staff go out of their way like the staff at the Valverde, making sure that my wife and I were comfortable, giving great directions and recommendations, and even little thing like holding an umbrella over her when we got into an Uber.
The only negative was a blown light bulb in a lamp and some minor housekeeping issues.
This is one hotel that i will be happy to stay at again!
