Some love HF Fénix Music's location, right at the Marquês do Pombal square, but for us that counts as its only drawback.
Locations don't get any more central than that, though: you will be right next to the Avenida da Liberdade, the Eduardo VII Park and just a short walk away from the Chiado and Príncipe Real.
Be warned that leaving the hotel is no simple task. Inside, you will be closing the door on Lisbon and entering a world of its own – where are we really? HF Fénix Music is not just a music-tribute hotel, it's a whole sensory experience. All 109 rooms have a theme, from rock to pop to classical music to fado, and every one is equipped with all you need to create you own private disco: Bluetooth sound systems, Internet access touchscreens and even dynamic, disco-style lighting. Music is everywhere: the front desk is drum set-shaped, the bar resembles a piano keyboard. On top of the building you will find a small oasis that will make you forget you're in the centre of Lisbon: a lounge terrace with a swimming pool and a bar with a broad view of the castle. The restaurant serves breakfast only – such a great establishment could do more. At the bar you can chat and have beer either at the counter or on the couch, everything lit as if on a dance floor.
