This location will suit business guests, sightseers and shoppers. The business district is just the other side of the Avenida da Liberdade. High-end shops such as Hugo Boss and Cartier are just around the corner. And sights such as the Marques de Pombal statue and the Botanical Gardens are within yards. The bars and restaurants of Bairro Alto are a short cab-ride away or a 20-minute walk.
Each of the rooms is named after famous writers such as William Shakespeare and Calderón de la Barca, with relevant works provided for bedtime reading. Everything is very smart and modern, with flatscreen televisions, walnut timber flooring and caramel tones used throughout. The suites are good value and have excellent cross-city views to St George’s Castle.
There’s a stylish lobby with button sofas and neo-gothic armchairs. It’s a fairly comfortable spot for informal meetings, or just a coffee and a flick through the papers.
Eating and drinking
The Das Letras Restaurant is a relaxed and informal spot with an outdoor terrace. Unfortunately, the food is known to be pretty average.

All of the staff are all very pleasant and on-the-ball.
