Portugal is under lock down. Thankfully, this hotel provided me with a 5€ self-Covid test that I had to pass in order to stay there, a new requirement of all hotels in Portugal starting December 25.

2/10 Poor

After our first night, me and my partner started feeling a horrific itchiness. We checked the sheets but found nothing so assumed it was from a different wash we were using or something non related. However after our third night, we found blood spots on the bed sheets so decided to check the bedding - we were horrified to find what looked like a flea. As we were already checking out we decided to mention this to the lady on the front desk specifying that we were not after any compensation we simply wanted to inform. We also mentioned that during our 3 night stay our bedding was not once changed and at no point were we offered clean towels or room service. We were told that due to COVID-19 they would only clean our room if we requested it. However, surely especially due to the virus better cleanliness should be maintained to ensure everything is sanitised. Also we cannot request something we are not told is on offer. Overall I found the price we paid for the tiniest room without even space for a cot bed for our baby was not really worth it, and I’m now boiling all our clothes hoping we didn’t bring back any fleas or bedbugs.

An affordable, pleasant place to stay
This is an affordable, pleasant hotel outside of the city center. I chose it because it was down the street from a friend, but it was still very easy to navigate the city, because of the train station just outside it's doors. It is on top of a small shopping center which made it easy to grab snacks.

2/10 Poor

No concession consideeing I was taken ill & ended up in in Hosp for almost 3days in A&E .. 🙏 Just by dealing with duty management I found them to be very inflexible Though they promised to bring my case to IBIS the Manager refused to speak to me point blank when I was checking out leaving the delivery of bad news to her junior colleagues - even though I could clearly see her in the next room - she totally blanked and dismissed me . Very rude and disappointing aprroach after a week long stay. I requested a small fridge from r meds in my room . It wasn’t provided and each day morning and eve I had to approach staff wait and go to oublic facilities to administer my meds. This is for me humiliating ! From r a lesser fee in a similar style Ibis in Wroclaw they facilitated my request in this regard honorably . Lacking in sensitivity is my appraisal of the tough manager - Lady -. Other staff esp the young Barman and one special lady with waves and curls at reception reception were courteous considerate and kind. Credit where credit is due . But the Top of the pencil needs pairing .
