Millions of mini-problems in the fresh and modern hotel Feb 28, 2012
I booked Tsar hotel for a really good price - around 50 EUR for 2 people, breakfast included.
Hotel building is absolutely fresh (beginning of 2012) and renovated; room was nicely decorated, modern, with huge TV, comfy beds and absolutely adorable bathroom. The hotel is located on one of the main streets of Lisbon, couple minutes away from the metro station. The street is really safe, even though you can meet on it homeless people (like almost everywhere in Lisbon), besides just some couple minutes away on the same street there is a local restaurant / beer hall, where locals usually go for a seafood dinner.
Staff was helpful and sweet, maybe not yet totally professional, however, sometimes sweet is nicer then professional :).
Breakfast was very good (when you came in time)..
And now a little bit about these million tiny problems in this overall nice hotel.
Do not stay there if you are in the business trip or have planned to work a bit. There is no Internet. Though you can clearly see there a strong wi-fi connection, it's mission impossible to connect with it. If you will try, it can take hours to get connected for a short period. Really annoying. Unfortunately also in the reception there is no place where you could check an Internet.
Next issue was with wonderful and huge TV with 40 programmes. Suddenly tv stopped working in the entire hotel. And it was not fixed for two days (until I had to leave).
Finally, there is some chaos during the breakfast. There is not enough places at tables as hotel guests, therefore, it can happen that you will have to wait in the waiting area until some table will be free. But, but.. if you get a table, you can be already late for some of the food..
Nevertheless, I am sure that these mentioned problems will be solved soon and it is just a result of currently short experience of the hotel staff and/or management. All together I liked there a lot.

Good hotel, close to city centre. Apr 09, 2012
My sister and I stayed here with a special deal from Groupon. The hotel and staff were extremely helpful and courteous, they even brought an iron and ironing board to our room in the evening (€20 deposit). Every part of the hotel was very clean. Breakfasts were good and staff replenished anything that that was running out. Bathroom is a good size. We were at the front of the hotel which has the main road directly below, so if you're not used to town/city life you may not appreciate this.
You can easily walk from the hotel into the centre of Lisbon - takes about 20-25 minutes. The metro is less than 5 mins walk from hotel. I would say it's in a reasonable area, it's a city, you get all sorts of people, we felt very safe.
Do not take taxi from Lisbon Tourist Centre located in the airport-we were quoted €23 and told the "street taxis" could rip us off - thinking this was quite expensive, we took our chances on the taxis outside the airport, where there was a "steward" making sure that both taxis and passengers were taking their turn. The driver was very helpful and chatty and the cost was under €12. We used taxis about 4 times and found all the drivers very good.
