Nominated for a 2014 World Luxury Hotel Award, and a worthy winner of a coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, Altis Avenida makes a bold, retro statement in the heart of the Portuguese capital. Designed by celebrated architect Cristino Silva, the property houses an authentic marble staircase and a grand entrance hall behind its impressive façade.
Elsewhere, the hotel embraces a different style of urban chic, with gleaming polished floors, sleek furniture and gold hanging lamps to create a striking monochrome, Art Deco-infused feel. Such careful design, in fact, led the Altis Avenida to the Best Hotel Interior in Portugal award at the International Hotel Awards 2013. The pièce de résistance has to be the rooftop Restaurant Rossio, with its panoramic views over the Gothic cathedrals, ancient monasteries, quaint museums and bustling streets of the city below.
Your room will have great views of downtown Lisbon and the famous Praca dos Restauradores. Blackout blinds, soundproofing and a pillow menu provide the finishing touches.
Boasting some of the best views in town, the Rossio Restaurant on the rooftop is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late nightcaps. Stone, brass and glass are used to great effect; look out for the original tiles that depict the city before the earthquake. When it comes to the food, expect a menu of contemporary Portuguese cuisine, prepared to the highest standard. Breakfast is served until mid-morning.
Here, you’re on one of Lisbon’s most famous thoroughfares, so expect plenty of life and color. The hotel makes a great base for exploring the city on foot, and you’re just steps away from the grand squares of Rossio and Restauradores. To make things easier, you’ll be given a city map at reception.Shopping-wise, whether you prefer trendy boutiques or swank department stores, you’ll be spoiled for choice. If it’s culture you’re after, then the historic center of Rossio is all around you. Hop on a circular tram ride around the city to get a feel for the place, and take a trip up to the steep Barrio Alto for even more spectacular views. For outings out of town, there’s a station across the road.
How to Get There
The hotel is in a great location, easily accessible to the sights, restaurants and nightlife of Lisbon. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Because of its central location, taxi and Uber pick up and drop off can be somewhat challenging. Also, beautiful views from the rooftop restaurant from where breakfast is served in the morning.
We visit lisbon for 1.5 days and starting everything from the altis hotels was a really good idea. Staff is really nice and hotels rooms are clean and good size, my only down side is the breakfast. Tiny space and tables too close to each other, with no much variety of food to choose. Other than that i will definitely recommend it
My husband and I stayed here for a week while visiting Portugal. Excellent location and quiet in the evening despite being in center of city. Room was small but we made it work. Train stop in front of hotel. The hotel was very nice and the buffet breakfast was very good. Nunu(spelling) was very nice and always had a friendly smile. We had dinner at the hotel our first evening and it was very nice with a wine pairing. Just a note to staff: just because there is a VIP person in the breakfast room don't ignore the rest of your guests. It was very obvious that they were looking to impress this one guest and ignoring the rest. So much that they brought my coffee to their table. In addition, room maid walked into room several times when do not disturb sign was on door.
We have just spent three nights at this fabulous hotel.
From the minute we arrived until we left, the service was impeccable.
Every member of staff was there to attend to anything requested. Bedroom and bathroom spotless with a beautifully comfortable bed.
Breakfast on the 7th floor was luscious and nothing was too much when requested.
We had pre-dinner drinks relaxing on the terrace, again on the 7th floor just taking in a few rays of evening sun.
Live World Cup football was available in the reception bar.
The hotel is in a great location and we walked everywhere. Rossi train station is opposite, so our trip to Sintra was more than easy (5€ return).
Thank you to the wonderful reception team who constantly made us smile!
We would return without hesitation.

I booked with hotels.com and needed to change the check out date of my reservation. Hotels.com said they can only cancel and then I would need to make booking but then I would lose my rate and room type. I called the hotel directly and spoke with Sofia Rosas in the reservation department. She was so helpful and gave us the same upgraded room at the same price. It’s been a good start!!
