          Special touches make it a stand out

          We were fortunate to stay in this charming boutique art deco hotel for four nights in a double superior room. Our room was very spacious and clean, decorated with the stylish art deco furnishings adorning the whole hotel. We were on a higher level (fifth floor) and were not affected by any outside street noise at night. It was nice to have tea and coffee facilities in our room as a lot of the hotels that we stayed at throughout our time in Europe did not offer this. Free WiFi was also appreciated. We also had a complimentary decanter of port and walnuts provided in our room each night, which was one of several special touches that made this hotel stand out.

          The buffet breakfast had a good selection of both hot and cold dishes, regularly replenished by staff during service. Good selection of teas and good coffee. Fresh juices, fruit and pastries along with other hot options. Being available until noon each day was an added bonus.

          Staff were wonderful. They were approachable, helpful and very friendly. More than happy to suggest good places to eat and other local attractions.

          It is in a great location in downtown Lisbon and we found that we were able to walk easily to most of the attractions, shops and a good selection of restaurants. It was also close to the hop on hop off bus which we enjoyed going on to see a bit more of the city.

          Complimentary tea time served daily in the library from 5 to 9pm is a wonderful tradition that we quickly became accustomed to. There is tea, coffee and port available, with a selection of pastries on offer, including delicious Portuguese custard tarts, made fresh daily.

          While there the hotel celebrated its 69th Birthday and all guests were invited to join the owners in the lounge for champagne and nibbles to celebrate. It was a really nice gesture and great to meet the owners personally and the other guests. Special touches like this and the complimentary tea time made you feel like you were a guest at a grand home, rather than a hotel guest.

          Definitely recommend and will stay again when next in Lisbon.

Aaron and I get in touch with the lady who runs the apartment and we tell her we will be there at 3pm and will go fill in sometime until then. We walk down to the waterfront and I am busting for the toilet, so we head in and grab a coffee and tea together on the waters edge. It’s a much nicer day today, the sun is shining (with intermittent cloud cover). We ...

After the castle, we wandered back down to the level of some major squares, which are still at an elevation far above the river. The visit to a cafe for our daily coffee hit cost us less than €3 for the ...

I haven't had that in a hostel since Lithuania and Eastern Europe. Not to mention that the place is only a month old so everything is clean and new. I could actually live here.

          ... One of the last great Rococo buildings to be designed in Europe, the palace was conceived as a summer retreat for Dom Pedro of Braganza, later to become husband and then king consort to his own niece, Queen Maria I. It served as a discreet place of incarceration for Queen Maria as her descent into madness continued in the years following Dom Pedro's death in 1786. Following the destruction by fire of the Ajuda Palace in 1794, Queluz Palace became the ...

Many came from their respective countries in order to find work only to be disappointed by the economic crisis of 2008-2009. Portugal was known to them as a comfortable country to live in with a lot of tolerance for many different types of people. In the novel, The Night in Lisbon, Portugal's accommodating nature is mentioned several times. For example, during WWII Portugal was ...
