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
The front desk staff were extremely helpful and very friendly and the room/apartment was spacious- that is why I give it 3 stars.
When we checked in there were crumbs around the kitchen area, and the couch (very uncomfortable) was very soiled. We called about some mold in the shower area, but there was nothing that could be done about that. We found the mattress very uncomfortable, to the point that both my and my husband's backs was affected, and the sheets were stiff and also not comfortable, plus the lighting in the room was not sufficient and there was no comfortable chair to sit in.
Be aware of the very steep hill to climb to get to the hotel, which is not in the center of activity, but does provide a nice walk if you're up for it. All in all we were disappointed.
There is a market around the corner which was very convenient.
I stayed here with my husband and two teens. The hotel is really lovely. The hot tub on the roof is super. Rooms very spacious. Lovely and friendly staff. Within walking distance of lots of lovely bars and restaurants.
Great place to stay in Lisbon with families. We chose this hotel as it has very nice reviews and we’re glad we did. Upon checking in, we were greeted with helpful staff and we were upgraded to a fully furnished Penthouse since we’re a family of 7, which we really appreciated as it facilitated the coordination of our daily activities and a whole lot of things. We also booked a dinner in Grill D. Fernando restaurant located in Altis Grand Hotel (opposite street) to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday along with friends and families who flew from Switzerland, and the banquet coordinator, CARLA, provided us with her excellent services. From the preparations up to our departure, Carla has been very responsive and accommodating, making sure that our requests are dealt with. Honestly, Carla’s and Altis' services beat other five-star hotels miles by miles compare to those luxury hotels in Switzerland. We have never been treated with such care and this made a lot of difference.
Aside from the hotel’s hospitality, we enjoyed our stay in Lisbon as the people are nice, the majority speaks English, seafood is nice and affordable, and we’re glad we stayed in Lisbon for more than 5 days.
Overall, we had a wonderful time in Portugal. Thanks Altis and Carla for making our stay in Lisbon a memorable one. We will definitely come back again in Lisbon and stay in Altis Prime again.
For those who are planning to celebrate something in Lisbon (birthday, anniversary, engagement), I highly recommend doing it in Altis and ask for CARLA, she’s the best!!!
