The building used to be an embassy and the rooms are magnificent. We had a room with an amazing view of a park with the city of Lisbon behind that.

10/10 Exceptional

Lovely Hotel, perfect location.
The room and bathroom were very large and spacious. The entire hotel was decorated very thoughtfully- it was very cute. Some of the furniture showed signs of wear and tear, but it seemed intention and fit in the decor. The bed was a little less than perfectly comfortable for my husband and I; however I have slept on worse hotel beds. The pillows also seemed to have a plastic cover on them under the pillowcase. This also contributed to a really warm (albeit sweaty) bed experience. The view was unreal. The location could not be beat. The street facing room had huge windows with a small little patio. Outside the windows were a lovely square as well as the tram line. Be aware that there is a lot of street noise; but with the windows and shutters closed, we slept soundly with my white noise app. The hotel also provides earplugs. The service was fantastic and the hostess at breakfast was a breath of fresh air. The breakfast was fresh and filling, and my husband appreciated the bottomless espresso.
