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
Stayed here for three nights recently, we were very comfortable, very helpful staff who really go the extra mile to help you. We had a one bed apartment, lots of room, extremely comfortable bed with high quality bedding. Big shower, stacks of hot water, big fluffy towels. Small kitchen with plenty of utensils if you wanted to cook a simple meal. We only did breakfast, lots of really good restaurants nearby. Extra thanks to the lovely receptionist, who when we left, to go on to Porto, gave us recommendations for restaurants there. Will definitely be going back to Lisbon, would stay here again.
We spent seven days in a deluxe apartment in the seventh floor. Reception welcomed us very friendly and gave us all the information we need. A member of the reception was there round the clock, and all of them very always with a smile.
Shortly after the check-in we got a plate with two "Pastel de Nata" – that was a nice surprise.
The hotel is near the Metro station Rato, and you can get there from the airport with only one change within 45 minutes. You can easily walk towards Rossio and other places.
Bedroom and living room are separated from each other – that is quite practical. The apartment itself is circa 50 square meter big. Beside a sofa and an armchair there is also a desk. There is a kitchenette in the apartment as well. I had chosen the hotel because I always like an opportunity to cook. The kitchenette is well equipped with two hotplanes, a microwave oven and a toaster. Unfortunatley the kitchen cupboards hang very low so that is it very hard to stand in front of the hotplates or the sink if you are not a dwarf. Indeed I could only use one hotplate at a time because there is not enough place for two bigger pots or a pot and a pan. So the kitchen can be used only for easy dishes.
There is a coffee machine in the room as well and you get your daily three capsules of nespresso if you want them. On the first day we also had a free bottle of water.
Beds were big and comfortable ad you could chose between different cushions. As for the sofa in the living room: We would have been glad if the sofa had cushions as well. It would have been more comfortable then.
The room was cleaned every day and was spotless.
We did not have breakfast as we thought the price a big high. There is a supermarket at the corner of the street where you can shop.
You can also use the swimming-pool at the Altis Grand hotel beside the Altis Prime Hotel. We had no time left to go there but I think it is a nice offer.
Our apartment was well cut and had some nice gadgets, for example a central switch for the lights. The bathroom was also very nice. However I did not like at all the bathtub. It may look great but for smaller or older persons it is nearly impossible to get out of the high bathtub any more. Besides there is water everywhere on the sides of the bathtub if you take a shower.
All in all we had a relaxing week and would recommend the hotel to our friends.
Nice place to stay. Close to everything. We had a great room on the 6th floor. Stayed for a week. Would recommend for a good inexpensive place close to everything. The restaurant on the main level is good but $18 E for breakfast was a little steep.
Mold!!!!! I was shown two rooms both of which had mold in the bathroom. Excuse was they try to keep things clean. They don’t even try to clean the showers from what I saw and they call this place a 4 star apartment hotel. The kitchen is almost unusable and very small. There is only a small two person table with two uncomfortable chairs. Otherwise there is no place to sit.
This aparthotel is perfect for a city break in lisbon. The room we stayed in was ideal for a small family as this included a lounge area separate from the main bedroom. The hotel was clean and very conveniently located for exploring Lisbon.
