The lobby is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the executive club is welcoming (with champagne and snacks served all day and many free foreign language newspapers), and the staff is plentiful and helpful. Many newer hotels focus on showiness, but the Corinthia focuses on a high staff-to-guest ratio and responding to guests' needs. The hotel is steps from the Zoo metro station, and on a street with many restaurants. The lobby is huge and there's live piano music most every night. Guest rooms are serviced twice daily. The towels are exceptionally large and fluffy, and you get a linen floor-mat beside your bed each evening. The gym has the latest equipment and an exercise specialist to help you out. There's a large pool and spa. Dinner in the dining room (Tipico) features a Portuguese buffet - delicious and reasonably priced at about €30. I upgraded to the executive club for an additional €30 per day which includes a full breakfast in the magnificent penthouse suite overlooking the city and aqueduct. Wine, beer, soft drinks and snacks are served here all day. Daniel, the waiter, is delightful and helpful, and the hostess, Monica, makes good tourist recommendations and books tickets for guests. After a few days I felt completely at home in this wonderful hotel and would stay here again in a heartbeat. It's a great hotel if what you're looking for is quiet luxury, and respectful treatment, without a lot of hype. I highly recommend this hotel. Thank you so much.
