Close to Lisbon’s financial and upscale commercial quarter, the Altis Prime was launched as an ultramodern apartment hotel in 2010. Award-wining Portuguese interior designer Cristina Jorge de Carvalho meticulously designed each room with a minimalist yet elegant touch: Floor-to-ceiling wood paneling and quilted leather furnishings combine with a delicate color palette of white and earth-tone neutrals. Amenities include a well-equipped kitchenette with a microwave, a fridge, an electric range and a Nespresso machine. The cozy home-away-from-home extras range from bathrobes and slippers to pillow menus and organic Omnisens Paris toiletries. The Lounge Caffé, which serves light meals and drinks, is casually chic in design and ambience. Weather permitting, the discreet rooftop deck and Jacuzzi are available for all guests to use. For business needs, the in-house meeting room accommodates up to eight in a naturally lit setting, while the tiny business center is suitable for quick tasks on the fly.
In the Area
Take a brisk five-minute walk to the northern end of the swank Avenida da Liberdade and browse designer boutiques or local retailers such as Lanidor and Fashion Clinic. Nature lovers might prefer a stroll to Eduardo VII Park, the largest (and arguably loveliest) green space in town, and to the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcantara, a popular meeting point that offers beautiful views of the city. Choice eateries abound, but for traditional cuisine in a classic Portuguese setting, book a table at the old-school favorite Gambrinus.
How to Get There
We had booked this hotel for the first night of our getaway with family to Portugal.
As we were only spending one night in Lisbon we wanted something central and handy from the airport as our flight arrived in at 10pm.
Upon arrival at the hotel the checking in went very smoothly thankfully as it was after 11pm by this stage and our 9 and 4 year olds were pretty tired (they loved the little kid check in step at the front desk)
But then things went a little unexpected.
We were upgraded to a very large premium suite on the top floor for our stay.
The room was fantastic and we loved the style and layout. Kids beds were made and ready for them to crash out - they had to be encouraged to do so as they wanted to run around and explore the rooms first and hide in the very ample closets/storage in the apartment.
The jacuzzi bath was a hit with them, neither needed encouragement to have a bath in the morning.
This upgrade was a very welcome surprise and I only wish we were with them for longer to enjoy it more.
The interaction with the staff on the whole was first rate plus they accommodated a couple of requests with no issues, I cannot fault them.
We would definitely recommend Hotel Altis Prime to anyone staying in Lisbon plus when we return to Lisbon next we will stay longer and absolutely stay here.
We managed to get a great deal on this hotel and were worried that it would too business-y for us from the pictures however it was incredibly sleek and stylish. The reception staff were very friendly and were happy to help us when we needed directions. The rooms were spacious and very quiet. The pool and sauna are not in the hotel itself but if you exit the front door it’s just around the corner, not even a minute walk. Superb hotel and definitely recommend to anyone needing an affordable yet luxury hotel in Lisbon.
The Hotel Altis Prime is a great Apartment Hotel in Lisbon.
The Apartments are very spacious and comfortable. Ideal for a business trip!
The breakfast is enough, however don't expect a very big choice.
The hotel location is convenient - close to Avenida da Liberdade and Principe Real. There are also lots of restaurants and shops around the hotel.
The Reception and Restaurant staff were brilliant!! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful - and this is what matters the most when you choose a hotel.
