Comfortable hotel in quiet location.
Posted Aug 29, 2016
We chose this hotel because it was not in the main tourist areas and therefore quiet. Although it is not near to the beach or the main tourist attractions it does provide a free shuttle service to the beach, shops and railway station. The shuttle runs every 30 mins from early morning until late but the time slot you require has to be pre-booked as it only caters for a limited number of passengers for each run. It takes about 20 mins to the railway station and from there you can catch a train into downtown Lisbon (30mins) or to the towns along the coast such as Estoril or Cascais. We also travelled to Sintra via train and metro. Sintra is definitely worth a visit.
The hotel was quite comfortable and very clean. Our room was fairly spacious and the ensuite had a good shower over the bath. The extensive buffet breakfast catered for both continental and full English but my only disappointment was that the hot food was rarely hot. Nevertheless there was a wide choice of fresh fruit, breads, ham, cheese, cereal etc.
Our only real disappointment was the lack of local restaurants for evening meals. The hotel provides bar snacks and more substantial meals of an evening but these are served in the bar area which is a bit limited for this purpose.
The hotel is based in a commercial complex and is really targeting business clientele but we found it very suitable for sight seeing around the Lisbon area. Definitely not for those travellers who wish to be based in the thick of things.
