No 5 stars
The hotel is not 5 star. The most annoying thing is that all the suites have no view and are very dark. Only classic rooms with a view. We had a superior suite, which was given to us with a surcharge of 400€ instead of a junior suite, which was as dark as a cellar. But there was no view, it was dark. The bathroom in all the photos provided by the hotel is bright. We also had a dark bathroom, with bypass tiles. And worst of all, the water pressure in the shower is very poor. It was impossible to properly wash my hair. For a 5 star hotel, I think this is unthinkable. Even for the very old. We said it was a problem with the shower but the hotel couldn't fix it. The hair dryer in the room is very poor quality and old. Iron and board on request. The decoration of the room itself was also dark and did not match the photo on the website. Breakfast costs $35 per person. The breakfast is very limited. We were with a child and no porridge is offered for breakfast. Artificial flowers in the lobby. There are practically no fresh flowers, only a small vase is brought to the room with the order of food. There are no fresh flowers in the lobby, which is strange for a hotel of this level. In the garden, where breakfast is sprinkled, the fountain does not work and looks abandoned and not well maintained. I haven’t finished my breakfast yet, and a technical person has already come to move tables and remove mattresses from chairs - they don’t have a concept that a

Arrived early. Room not ready. Told that suite was available for extra 100 Euro per night. Asked if breakfst included with upcharge. Answer, no! Bfast available at 35 euro pp. (I think they misplaced the decimal point). Wait 6 hrs or get rest now? We took the suite. Suite was shabby. Cheaply furnished. Floor lamp fell apart when turned on. No room service menu in room. No coffeemaker in room. (Tea kettle only). No ice bucket or ice. This is a Grande Dame on its last legs about to pass into oblivion. It needs a new owner with deep pockets. Avenida palace in Lisbon is from the same era and retains its sparkle there is no reason El Palace could not do the same under the right owners and management. On the plus side, the bed and bedding were comfortable and the lobby staff (Concierge and Bell men) were exemplary and made every effort to make our stay comfortable. They deserve a venue that reflects their dedication.

The hotel located in the good area. The front desk was ok, nothing special or heart-melting. For the price you pay they could be nicer. The room is overrated and pretty old ( meaning the blinds, the bath etc). They made pretty low lighting just to cover all these small details. Overall is okay
