How to Get There
My husband and I only have positive comments to share about the Altis Belen as the staff and accommodations exceeded all of our expectations. Upon arrival, Franchesa was hospitable and accommodating to all our needs. She took the time to explain the amenities and Lisbon landscape. Since our room was not ready when we arrived, Franchesa recommended that we freshen up in the spa, which was extremely helpful. Although the location is outside the city center, there is still a ton of fabulous restaurants and activities to take advantage of. We hope to return to Lisbon and if we do, we will definitely stay at the Altis Belen.
I brought my boyfriend there as a birthday present. He loved it and so did I. The spa treatments were fantastic, as was the room itself. We took a room with a Jacuzzi and also had a superbe view from the room. Breakfast was tops and the service could not have been better. It's the first time I would visit a city again for the hotel room.
While you have a pretty waterfront location here, it's far away from the touristy stuff and some of the rooms face the road and are very noisy. We had a nice room with a balcony, the rooms are spacious, although the decor is too modern and borderline cheap, I don't like veneer and the black and white theme was not very Lisbon. There are other issues, the door to the bathroom is heavy and black, at night it's really annoying to deal with, and if you leave it open it doesn't provide access to the toilet, bad design. The bathroom has not fan, but the AC seems to take care of the issue. The bed was OK but a bit hard, so we asked for comforters on top, their first response was the bed is comfortable, obviously not for me, the second was we are not sure we have extra conforters, in which case I had to stop being nice and demand they do what I asked. For a five star hotel they were failing fast.
The gym only opened at 9am, it was tiny and next to the sauna so it was hot and humid, who came up with this brilliant design and hours, how is anyone supposed to work out in the morning?
While we enjoyed our large room, yes they are quite large for European rooms and view, I would not recommend this for first-time visitors to Lisbon as the location is not great and for the price, you can find better hotels.
If you want to stay away from the hustle and buzz from downtown Lisbon yet still enjoy and explore Lisbon, this is the place.
Small, modern boutique hotel just outside of downtown right on the water.
The staff did a fantastic job, front desk, house keeping, the concierge, the bell toys and restaurant staff!
I only had breakfast and room service, and both were absolutely delicious with extremely attentive staff!
The roof deck with pool is great to relax after a long day exploring the city!
I would most def return!
A special thank you to Rita Silva, the concierge (and I assume guest relationship manager), she did a great job finding us a private tour guide on short notice, recommending restaurants and a sightseeing tour outside of Lisbon. She really made a difference for us during this stay!
We stayed in the Artis Belem last weekend for two nights and had a great time. We had a suite on the corner of the building, giving us an amazing view of the Tagus and the discovery monument. The bathroom is pretty special and the bed was huge. The breakfast deserves a special mention, lovely desserts and cakes! Staff were also friendly and efficient particularly the waiting staff at breakfast and Theresa who looked after us very well from the time of booking to check-out. All in all a lovely experience in Lisbon.
