Lots of features for a low price.
Posted Aug 2, 2016
For a relatively low price, this hotel has a lot to offer: pool, free wireless, free breakfast, mini-fridge. This is nice if you are on a budget but still want many features.
However, not that every features are a bit on the cheap side. Internet has some hicups and is generally slow. The pool is not what you'd expect of a hotel pool, it looks more like a residential aboveground pool.
Breakfast is good enough with decent diversity.
The hotel is close enough to 2 subway stations: Rato (yellow) and Marques Pombal (blue/yellow) so it is convenient. It is still a good walk from the stations (with hills), but close enough.
We tried two restaurants nearby that we recommend. An indian restaurant (Natraj Tandoori - Rua do Sol ao Rato - 50-52) and a vegetarian buffet (Terra - R. da Palmeira 15). There is also a grocery store (Pingo Doce - Calçada Bento da Rocha Cabral 16) very close to the hotel which is very convenient for longer stays.
We tried two beaches: Carcavelos and Concercao/Duquesa/Reinha. Carcavelos is a nicer beach, but the others, being so close to Cascais town are convenient for restaurants. They are all easily accessible by train from Lisbon to Cascais. Water is cold but nice.
