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 spent just a day in the Corinthia Hotel in Lisbon and very much enjoyed it! The premises are clean, very well kept and nicely decorated. The room I stayed in the 22nd floor was a bit dated, but spotless and smelling great. The bathroom was spacious and with a great shower. When it comes to the bed, I must say it is not the best I’ve ever slept but it was ok. The hotel had great services too! One point for the hotel to take care of was the food in the buffet. Poor variety and not tasty at all. The meet was very hard and over cooked , the pasta tasted like plastic and the sweets (which are the greatest attractions in Portugal), did not taste good at all too! Hope this is helpful.
We stayed here for two nights and couldn’t recommend it enough. The location was perfect, right next to a metro station and nice and quiet.
We used the spa after our run and it was by far one of the best we’ve been to. Breakfast has a lovely ambience and a good food selection.
Manager Goncalo Borges went out of his way to make sure our stay was special.
Don’t hesitate in booking
Staying at the Corinthia Lisbon at the moment and not only is it a beautiful hotel but the staff are so polite and helpful that they make feel welcomed all the time. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and extremely clean. The Executive lounge takes up a whole floor and it is found on the 24th floor. The view from this floor is unbelievable. Corinthia Lisbon is a hotel that i would definitely and certainly recommend and will be visiting again. Thank you Corinthia Lisbon.
There is really nothing we could complain about regarding our stay at Corinthia Lisbon! We are members in the Discovery programme so we had the opportunity to stay in one of their suites which was very comfortable, spacious and decorated with great taste. We particularly liked the very large bed. Overall the property feels modern and luxurious but not in an opulent way. We tried the pool which is free to use and nice but not the spa (the 50€ per couple for only one hour is a bit pricey, same price for 2 hours would already be a more honest price for a 5 star facility). Breakfast was excellent and the Pastéis de Belém provided by the hotel were tastier than the ones served in the famous cafe, so enjoy them at breakfast and forget about queuing at the cafe :)! Nice touch with the lavender sachet and macarons at breakfast! Metro is within 5 minutes walking but recommend using Uber from/to airport (approx. 7€).
The Corinthia Hotel in Lisbon is a truly exceptional modern hotel set in wonderful grounds. My wife and I were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and had a lovely, spacious room. Even though our room was on the 21st floor, the lifts are so efficient that we never had to wait more than a few seconds for one to arrive. Great attention is paid to detail and the hotel décor is very tasteful - beautiful furnishings and flowers everywhere, including on all tables at breakfast. The fabulous breakfast in the lovely dining room was a real highlight. We were particularly struck by the hotel's warm, welcoming atmosphere and, without exception, the members of staff with whom we came into contact were extremely pleasant, courteous and helpful. Even the pianist who played at breakfast gave us a friendly wave each morning and Francisco, the Customer Services Manager, whom we consulted each morning about our plans for the day, was extremely helpful and went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed our time in Lisbon, conveying in the process his own love of the city. This hotel is really amazing - I could not imagine finding a better place to stay in Lisbon.
