We stayed at the he hotel for 4 nights for a conference at the Congress centre. We also had relatives on the same floor. The hotel was simply beautiful and our views fantastic. It was new, clean, uncluttered and modern. The bathrooms/shower had clear glass which may not suit families staying together, so keep that in mind.
The staff was attentive, helpful and kind . The breakfast staff made an effort to remember what type of coffee we liked for breakfast!
The bed and pillows were comfortable. The rooms large. Our relatives had balconies with a spa as they were in the better quality rooms. We had the better waterviews.
the pool was quiet and a little warm.
The breakfast choices were great, especially the cheeses!
It was close enough to walk to Belém Tower and the Jerónimos Monastery. To go into the centre of town, a taxi is needed however but not expensive , especially for 2-3 people. We paid €6-10 most days, depending on nighttime or exact location, as there are a lot of building works and delays at times. Walking to conference centre is about 30 minutes of flat but reasonably fast walk.
There are a couple of additional services that would make this perfect: provide tea making facilities ( currently Nespresso machine available but charged as minibar), provide water bottles every day, not just on arrival, have a self service laundry! Oh, perhaps a blind for the shower may make it more suitable to families....
Otherwise, one of my best ever hotel stays. Thank you.
