On Lisbon’s ritzy Rua Castilho, the Altis Grand Hotel is a contemporary crash pad designed by Portuguese architects Cristina Santos Silva and Ana Menezes Cardoso. The spacious lobby and bar combines contrasting design elements (ebony, stainless steel, brass and wood panel ceilings) and bold modern art pieces, while the 300 guestrooms are decidedly more sedate with white and neutral furnishings, lacquered wood furniture and abstract light fixtures. Fill up on inventive Portuguese cuisine and panoramic city views at the D. Fernando Grill and follow up with a signature cocktail at the remodeled Herald Bar. Hit the spa to relax in the Jacuzzi, the pool, the sauna or the Turkish bath, or hit the treadmill at the 24-hour gym.
In the Area
Explore the shops and eateries in and around Rua Castilho, just minutes from the elegant Marques de Pombal square and its lovely green surroundings. Sample Lisbon’s famous port wine in style at Solar do Vinho do Porto where you can sip your way through around 300 varieties. For a change of scene, head to the neighboring districts of Bairro Alto and Chiado, both hip hubs for dining and nightlife. Sample the creative tapas at Mini Bar, celebrity chef José Avillez’s latest eatery, or sip a cocktail at the Pavilhão Chinês, where quirky trinkets and antiques decorate the walls (and ceiling).
How to Get There
We travel s lot for work and the 1st impression is the most important when checking into a hotel and the reception staff at this hotel are very good
We was lucky that they upgraded our rooms to suites free of charge and made us feel so welcome
The room (1122) was very nice - lounge area large bathroom with large shower and a separate bedroom
It was very nice that the house keeper knock that night to make sure our rooms we all ok and then they sent some pastries and a bottle of port to welcome us to the hotel
Breakfast is also of a high standard and once again the staff make you do welcome
Overall this hotel is on our list to stay in Lisbon when we return
My favourite hotel! We really enjoyed our visit and the bistro is nice and the Garden rooftop bar had a very good DJ. Very nice and helpful staff. Prima fitness center. Excellent roomservice. The staff at the helpdesk at the reception is so good.
Carpets are dirty. The extractor in the bathroom doesn’t work - I have asked 4 times over three days and still waiting for it to be fixed.
Booked a “superior triple room” the third bed is rock solid and came with a SHEET - not even a duvet. (It wasn’t even a sofa bed).
No free newspapers available.
Breakfast items that should be hot, like eggs, were cold. Waffles were still defrosting.
Would be acceptable if you came with the expectation of a three star hotel.
