In an elevated position in the northern part of the city, the Corinthia Lisbon is a luxe 24-story property with views of Monsanto Forest Park and the striking 18th-century aqueduct. Geared toward business travelers due to its location in the banking district, it provides a handy base for vacationing visitors, too. It’s a short walk from the Gulbenkian Museum and the El Corte Ingles shopping mall, and a five-minute metro ride from Lisbon’s posh Avenida da Liberdade. All rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, tea- and coffeemaking facilities and free WiFi, and are decorated in gold and burgundy. Book an Executive Room for access to the lounge for all-day drinks and snacks and evening canapés. Start the day with breakfast at Sete Colinas, and dine on traditional Portuguese dishes at Tipico in the evening. The spacious terrace is a great spot for alfresco drinks, with its chunky loungers, water features and lanterns. Hit the Corinthia Lisbon Spa (Lisbon’s largest wellness center) for a workout at the gym or the aqua circuit, or for a massage or beauty treatment. The indoor pool features a small terrace for soaking up the rays.
In the Area
Take a guided tour of Lisbon’s mind-blowing street art. The city has become a world graffiti capital, and the local government even has a department dedicated to promoting it. Take the Elevador de Santa Justa from Baixa to Largo do Carmo; it’s a neo-Gothic wrought iron monument that dates from 1902. It was state-of-the-art when it opened, and the views from the 150-foot-high platform are still impressive. The Museu Calouste Gulbenkian has a wondrous collection of 6,000 ancient and modern artifacts and works of art, and on Sunday afternoons it hosts free concerts. Try your luck at Casino de Estoril, one of Europe’s oldest, grandest and biggest casinos. Non-gamblers can enjoy its glitzy club, Jezebel, which moves to nearby Tamariz Beach in summer.
How to Get There
I stayed here because I love its sister hotel in London. What a mistake.
Positives: amazing Spa treatments and grwat spa manager. The (although the floor is coming up in the Spa)
Negatives: you need an engineering degree to work out how the ac works in the room. In addition the service is generally mediocre. At breakfast it took 20 minutes for coffee to arrive from staff who seemed more interested in each other than they were in the guests.
It isn't the worst hotel I have stayed in its just not a Corinthia Standard hotel.
Second visit to this hotel, always an oasis of calm and with the high Corinthia standards.The only ( minor) criticism is that is slightly away from the main action however that really didn’t bother me at all.
Wonderful elegant hotel located in Lisbon Portugal. Comfortable accommodations and great restaurant for Breakfast and Dinners. We spent two nights there and would recommend to anyone visiting Lisbon.
Staff were friendly and many spoke English.
