Late review but better than never. I had again the pleasure to have a business trip scheduled to Lisbon. I was wondering if the hotel was able to keep up the fantastic improvement they made this year in the restaurant compared to my stays in 2008/09 and I can say that it was even better than expected and tremendous!! Since this year, this restaurant counts to one of my favorite one in hotels and can´t be compared to the mentioned years before. Whatever the management has changed or who you have changed keep it coming it will benefit you.
I was lucky that during my stay the hotel organized an Oktoberfest party. I thought whatever, but I still went there and just can say it was almost as the original, just funnier. The Manager was entertaining all guests and motivated them to dance, the band was originally from Munich as I understood and they were really good. The staff was unbelievable friendly with a great service and smile like I hardly have seen before. And the food and German beer, I think you can´t get it better in Munich. I was on the last weekend of this event and I enjoyed so much that I event went a second evening.
I thought that was already fantastic, but after the weekend the waiter in the restaurant told me that they have a wild promotion on and as a hunter I had to try it the Portuguese way. Indescribable!! This place became a culinary secret with all there changing promotions and it makes more and more fun to check in in this hotel. Also the a la carte menu changed now to more Portuguese traditional food and I guess half of the menu is with this highlights. Breakfast, I described last time, is still very good. The quality is high and selection big. I think for everybody something and I realized they have changed more items towards the health concerned and vegetarian people.
The hotel rooms are still good but this time I had a flat TV which wasn’t there last time. Don’t know if this was new or I was in a cheaper room last time. The bathroom is still average and I hope there will be something done one day.
Only negative part is the internet and location. No wireless in the room and a guest has to purchase different packages in different areas. At least the Front Office lady told me so. I don’t understand in these days of being online everywhere, but at least there is something to improve. In regards the location, if you don’t mind to spend for taxi around 6€, than the location is also not a problem anymore. Going with a taxi in Lisbon is quite cheap.
Finally, I can recommend this hotel to everybody, especially to guests which like good food.
PS: Bruno the doorman is a fantastic and helpful person.
