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
Arrived at this hotel to be greeted with a really warm welcome. We were in one of their apartments (104) which couldn’t be faulted, the space was amazing, good size fridge with ice box, kitchenette( microwave, toaster, plates etc) plus a coffee machine, large lounge area with sofa,chairs and small table, beds huge and again lots of space and amazing amount of drawer and cupboard space for clothes etc.
Lovely bathroom with bath, dressing gowns and slippers. Towels changed daily even though we didn’t request it!
Room spotless and obviously cleaned daily.
We didn’t eat at the hotel as we were out every day/ eve but there is a cafe area that provides a good breakfast hot and cold and other food.
Food can also be ordered and brought to your room if required.
We loved this hotel as within reasonable reach of buses and trams to get out and about to enjoy the wonderful Portuguese architecture and places of interest.
We bought a 2 day hop on hop off double decker open top bus ticket which covered all our needs to get around and learn more from the commentary using the ear phones supplied at each seat. This ticket covered the use of the trams too so a good investment!
We loved Lisbon and everything about this hotel, it was perfect in every way and would certainly love to go back.
Finally just to add we found the staff at this hotel so very willing to help and so friendly as in fact we found the Portuguese people when our and about, nothing was too much trouble, lovely people- thank you for making our visit so pleasurable!
The Altis prime suites feel like a stylish indulgence but were surprisingly well priced. The buffet Breakfast is a bargain at 10e if you book ahead for everyday of your stay. Location is superb on the edge of an area of stylish shops and near the Botanic garden one way and the 'New Bond St' of designer shops in the other direction. Staff are attentive and courteous, if a little zealous about security (arguably no bad thing but I'd advise leaving the one key they'll provide per room behind the desk and take ID if you're returning in the early hours!). Comfy beds, a huge bath, stylish bathroom and bidet and a big lounge area with comfy chairs and a well equipped kitchenette, as well as the use of the gym in a nearby hotel were a wonderful surprise when we were generously upgraded to a 2nd floor suite. I'd definitely return here. Thank you!
We arrived before 11am and were offered early check-in on the ground floor. Absolutely quiet and extremely spacious. Well equipped kitchen. Really rare in Europe. Even had a fairly nice view out of the window.
Sumptuous breakfast. Efficient services. Checkin and out not super quick but they have only 2 staff. Rooftop not as nice as pictures shown. Not bother us.
Though Altis Prime would require quite a few minutes walk uphill from metro, it is not too much of a problem. In fact, for short distance within city, it would probably be easier and not much more expensive to take a cab.
We just spent 3 nights here. Overall it was very pleasant. The gentleman on reception on arrival was lovely and we found all the staff to be friendly and courteous. We were in a club room on the 2nd floor which was very spacious. I would agree with previous guests - the lighting system was somewhat difficult to master, and the bath/shower arrangement was not to my liking. The bathtub has wide sides, around 30cm, so you either have to sit and lift your legs over (but the shower screen gets in your way), or step over into the bath, which is very difficult. The water from the shower then collects around the sides, so the first day when I reached to get a towel it dragged in the water and got very wet. I agree that a bottle of water per day would not break the bank. My only other issue was the bed, which was like lying on a board, very hard and not comfortable at all. I did not sleep well any night. Breakfast was good, they made me an omelette each day, and coffee too was good. So, great staff, good facilities, good breakfast, good room, good location and good value.
Lovely stay at the Altis Prime. Stayed in a double suite with kitchen and living room area. Nicely decorated, spacious and clean. There’s a sofa bed in the living room but a single bed can be put in that area also. Really large bathroom with nice shower. Front desk staff were very friendly, helpful and informative. Great customer service is obviously a priority for the hotel. Great location also, about 20 mins walk to central area of Baixa and 10 minutes to Bairro Alto where there’s lots of nice restaurants. Would definitely recommend and stay again :)
