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
This hotel is in a great location. It is in walking distance of restaurants and offers a terrific bar on the 7th floor.
The staff were helpful helpful and the service was very good.
Our room was a nice size and came with a Nespresso machine.
I was sorry we were not able to stay a bit longer then 3 days.
We arrived early and dead on our feet. Check in time was not until noon. They played with the computer for a few minutes and gave us a room right away. As we turned to go up to the room, they told us that breakfast was still being served and we should go upstairs and get something to eat,( even though we weren't entitled to breakfast that day). The hotel is about as centrally located as you can get in Lisbon, near Restauradores, near shopping, near transportation. The rooms were spotless and spacious and the view from our balcony was lovely. Service was formal in style and yet friendly and the staff was great suggesting restaurants for lunch and dinner.. This hotel is one of the reasons we love Lisbon.
There is everything to like about this hotel.It's right in the middle of central Lisbon, just blocks to the water and a short walk to the old city neighborhood of Alfama. The rooms are big for European standards. We had a real king size bed and a roomy walk in shower. Plus, the staff was fantastic. The buffet breakfast that was included with our room was tasty, filled with fruits, great breads and pastries, meats, eggs, and more.
Highly recommend the Altis Avenida.
We wanted a central hotel in walking distance of restaurants and sightseeing for a week in Lisbon, this hotel fits all these needs. Staff are very friendly, English speaking and are helpful in giving good advice in getting around the area and the use of the transport system. We paid extra for a balcony on the second floor and it was nice to sit out and people watch the busy street below, the noise level is high but when you close the balcony door it is silence. The buffet breakfast is substantial and has everything you need for the day ahead, but like all meals gets repetitive after a few days, although they should invest in a new toaster, as it was incredibly slow. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms have air conditioning and a up market coffee machine. They rate this hotel a five star, I believe it is just below that but still good value for money.
We'd chose altis Avenida because I know it belongs chain of i prefer hotels group which we(My wife and me ) stayed Pulitzer Hotel in Amsterdam three years ago.We didn't wrong .The hotel's location,staffs,room ,breakfast,interior designs are excellent.Also the bed was very comfortable.We stayed in room 518.The room a bit small.The Rossio Train Station just before us but sound insulation were good.We weren't disturbed by noise.One final note: some days they'd make compliment dropping award-winning red wine.
