If you like 'quaint' you've come home to the Eduardo VII. It sort of reminds me of Fawlty Towers, but in a nice way. Firstly the positives. It's fairly central to both the touristy area and the business district being close (150 m) from the Marques de Pombal roundabout and the Avenida da Liberdade, Lisbon's answer to the Champs Elysees, and also to two Metro stations. The airport bus stops practically right outside. But I didn't see many business people in residence, only dozens of Italian tourists. It is a two and a half star hotel that is cheap (about GB£35 a night for me, including breakfast). That's the attraction. The room has seen better days and a painting was hanging off a wall but although there was plenty of dust on the carpet the beds were clean and comfortable (I was in a double for single occupancy, they do good deals like that online). When I picked up the 'phone it took 10 seconds to get a dial tone. I'd heard it could be noisy so I asked for a quiet room and I got one (115 if you're interested). No problem there. Slept like a log, despite the groaning of the plumbing system throughout the night. Speaking of the plumbing, the bathroom/toilet was the worst part of the room. I didn't take a shower because I didn't like the look of the cubicle. And towards the end of my stay the toilet, which has a tiny aperture, started backing up just as I ate something that didn't agree with me (not from the hotel I should add). I'm sure it would have been dealt with had I mentioned it but it left an unpleasant memory. The highlight of the hotel is the restaurant because it's on the 10th floor, i.e. the roof, and offers some great views of Lisbon. But only on two sides, it doesn't go all the way around and there are various barriers preventing you getting the best view. Breakfast was adequate (cereals, juices, croissants, meats and cheeses) but could do with some variety. I took one evening meal. The service (by the pleasant senior waiter, who seemed to be there all the time) was good but I thought 23 euros for a bit of beef, chips, a small glass of wine and a couple of tiny balls of ice cream was a bit stiff. I know it's a capital city but it was overpriced by about five or six euros. The restaurant could be quite romantic at night I suppose. There was a lovey-dovey couple sat on the next table to me. But their apparent ardour for each other turned out just to be a way of keeping warm. I don't think the heating was on. One problem they have is that breakfast doesn't start until 0730 for some reason, at least 30 minutes too late. When I got there at 0720 there was already a queue wending its way down the stairs to the next floor like they were all waiting for a welfare cheque and it took 15 minutes to self-serve. When I left 30 minutes later the queue was even bigger. Of endless fascination to me was the twisting circular staircase and the lift. You could easily get lost on that staircase and I did, several times. It's like a gothic theme park ride at Disneyland. And the lift is half elevator and half paternoster. It has a habit of getting stuck if you stand too close to the wall (there's a sign that tells you what to do if that happens and it should start up again quite soon). Whatever you do don't try and jump out if it gets stuck between the floors. Am American guy and I did that and we were almost cut in half. No complaints about the staff. Generally friendly and helpful throughout and with a good command of English. The funniest moment for me was when I asked to use the 'Business Centre.' It's located in an ante-room that is part of the maze of this hotel. It comprises a single computer operating Windows XP. It took me half an hour to send a message on Facebook and I gave up on sending an email. I was enraptured by the cursor, which wouldn't sit still for a second. While I've put it down I would actually stay here again, assuming they've fixed that toilet. In summary, it's cheap, central and convenient. You can't expect luxury for that price in a city centre. But I'm not sure I could manage more than a few days at a time. Collapse

The hotel is old and in need of renovation. Cleaning is good. Breakfast is adequate but can be as expected in a 2 star hotel. Bar is situated in the restaurant which is on the top floor, happy hour is from 18.30 (20% discount) restaurant opens at 19.00...... The distance from the hotel to the center of the city is approx 1,5 Km. The location of the hotel is in a "nothing to do area" and presently there are major road works outside the hotel with consequent noise. TV in rooms are like oversized Ipads - plenty of channels. Overall impression - you get what you pay for. Collapse

This hotel could do with a bit of a make-over but although the room was small it was clean and the bedding and towels were changed daily. The bathroom was also kept clean but the hot water took ages to get hot and the plumbing was noisy ( as were the neighbours who could be heard through the rather thin walls!). Antonio and Marcus on the reception desk were very helpful and any problems we had were dealt with efficiently and with good grace. The restaurant, on the 10th floor commanded great views across the city. The buffet style breakfast afforded a good selection and the evening meals were excellent. I found that if you smiled and treated the staff as human beings the service was excellent, another Antonio deserved a special mention here as well. The hotel is well situated for sight seeing and the Yellow Bus tours stopped just around the corner. If you are looking for 5* quality you would need to look elsewhere but for a budget holiday and a place to sleep this hotel is fine. Collapse

ROom could be more modernized and cleaner (and the badrooms) . The worst part was the breakfeast . it seems they are not prepared if many people go (and on a weekend this happens, of course) and we almost didn't had any breat. Positive side, the view in the breakfeast room ... Collapse

I was in this hotel hotel, i choose this neighborhood because a friend of mine was staying in this neighborhood. It was for a birthday party. I would not choose this neighborhood for a 2nd time.
