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
Good service and location, we managed to use the spa .The rooms were clean and the beds were big.Breakfast was delicious. the staff was very friendly and the rooftop had an amazing view.The Jacuzzi was not working though.
We stayed in this hotel for two nights and were very happy with this choice. We had a one-bed-room apartment which had a handy sliding door separating it from the living room which was good as one of our family slept in an extra bed they brought for her there. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable and big, and we slept very well. Both rooms were spacious and stylishly yet simply decorated. There was a small kitchenette with the basic utilities, and complimentary coffee. There was a bath tub but also a shower and my old mother liked the wide sides of the bathtub - you could sit on the edges so you could get in and out more easily. There was also a small kitchen table and a couple of chairs, and a desk. Both rooms had TVs. The lighting system was very intelligent but somewhat difficult to master - I often turned off all the lights by accident. But not too bad. We could adjust the heating ourselves which was good.
We were on the third floor facing the street so there was some traffic noise but not a lot. However I woke up on the other night when a garbage truck started loading stuff - it took a long time and there was also some horns as other car drivers wanted to get past the truck. Other than that there were no problems with the sound.
There is another Altis hotel next door which as a spa and we had access to the swimming pool there, which my daughter liked a lot. It was not a big pool but the water was heated, and there was also a jacuzzi, sauna and a steam bath. They provided the towels. That was a really nice thing. There was also a gym which we didn't use but which looked alright.
The location is quite nice - about 500 m from Avenida metro station and also close to the park and one of the especially nice places for great views. There are restaurants nearby, and on the Avenida de Libertad there are all the label fashion shops you can imagine if you are into that stuff..
We tried the buffet breakfast one morning and it was really nice, even if a bit pricey - 18 euros for an adult and 9 for the kids. But there were plenty of fresh fruit, some hot dishes, lots of choices for bread and cutlets, and yoghurt, musli and sweet things too.
The service was good - a nice woman welcomed us and made sure our room was in order - and as we were leaving, we could make use of the free shuttle to the airport. Originally, they had recommended we book a rather expensive private transfer but we did not need it in the end which was a bonus. I'd recommend this place warmly, and I'd gladly stay again. I'd say even if it is not cheap you get a lot for the money in a lovely city like Lisbon.
The hotel was fine, good location, near the busstation or the metro . Supermarkt close by, for breakfast also nearbyThe personal are Nice And want to help you👍To bad that the rooftop jacuzy was broken, beacsuse its Nice placeThe swimmingpool at grand was good And 2 min walk
Very good hotel with friendly personnel. Nice and quiet surroundings with good restaurants (some exceptions) within walking distance. Excellent beds in big rooms. Good breakfasts with very helpful staff.
Save yourselves money and nerves avoid this hotel. I was very looking forward to staying in their so-called studio apartment. It was terrible. At 125€ per night: No breakfast, kitchen is super tiny, not even sofa, smaller than my hostel room in the previous hotel in Portugal. Very out-dated, shabby, bad design and not cozy. Staff was not at all helpful, very unfriendly in most cases. Roof-top jacuzzi was broken during my entire stay. G-Spa is in a different building to which you have to go around the corner so forget going there in your robe. Also it was broken during my stay. Curtains had holes and were dirty! Omg! Such a sham. Robes they provide are super short, and really old.
Beds were ok, towels were fluffy and fresh. I guess that was the only good thing. not sound-proof as they say. There is no bath, and I couldn’t find the espresso-maker. In genera very bad design of rooms, locking systems, showers and everything to be honest! Avoiding all Altis places as a protest. Hope you do to!
