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 recently stayed here with our 2 kids and loved it. For us the location and size of the room was perfect. We liked it wasn’t in a huge tourist area but easy to get everywhere by car or train plus lovely restaurants and shops near by. We made breakfast in our room each day and use the Nespresso machine (only 2 pods a day so if you have them bring your own). The room was cleaned each day and we loved all the space! Kids loved the little treats in the room. So thoughtful.
The slight negative with the room was I could hear the street noise even up 7 floors. It didn’t keep me up but made it harder to go back to sleep some nights.
Now if you have a car the car park is possibly the worst one we’ve seen in the world! Rent the smallest car you can. We did and I’m so glad because I read the reviews and the car park is truely a tiny maze only for the experienced driver. Or get the full insurance on your rental!
We would stay here again. It’s great to have all the space and still be close to the train and main attractions.
Beautiful luxury hotel in a great location in Lisbon. Close to the nightlife but far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet, Altis Prime is an excellent hotel choice. Able to accommodate large families in the three bedroom apartment style penthouse, it is a perfect hotel for families. Don’t forget to visit the roof top relaxation deck to enjoy the view and take a break!
The internet photos accurately reflect the room and the amenities. User comments on the hill up to the hotel were also accurate.
The ladies on reception could not have been more helpful. Trip recommendations were perfect (having read comments/evaluations on alternative providers later confirmed this). Would definitely go back, despite the hill!!
