In Lisbon’s Amoreiras neighborhood, a short walk from the city’s main thoroughfare, Avenida da Liberdade, the EPIC SANA Lisboa is a contemporary crash pad with a sleek rooftop infinity pool. Striking artworks, hefty sculptures and oversize ceiling lights adorn the lobby, which is also home to a restaurant and a marble-effect horseshoe bar. The 311 guestrooms are done in mahogany, cream and teal, and the bathrooms are separated from the bedrooms by a glass wall (with a blind that can be lowered for privacy). Rooms start at 323 square feet, and all feature kingsize beds, bathtubs and separate showers, Nespresso coffee machines, pillow menus and bluetooth-enabled sound systems. Flor-de-Lis is an all-day dining spot on the ground floor that serves Portuguese dishes and a Saturday brunch, and the rooftop bar is open May to October for cocktails and light bites. The mammoth spa overlooks a botanical garden and has an indoor pool, or you can pop up to the roof to take a dip in the infinity pool, which overlooks Lisbon’s skyline.
In the Area
The huge Amoreiras Mall is just down the street and open until 11 p.m. every day. 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, a neo-Gothic wrought iron elevator dating 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 the 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
This hotel is close to the airport and at the same time a short walk into the centre of Lisbon.
Exceptionally comfortable bedroom, with excellent linen, and great bathroom.
Sadly no real view over Lisbon, it is really just a view of housing.
The breakfast buffet was excellent, with lots of choice, one of the best breakfast buffets I have seen.
All the staff were really helpful, and really the only complaint was that room service entered my room at 2250, saying something about providing more bottled water. Despite asking I’m not clear why this was happening so late, so would recommend you put a DND on your door, when you go to sleep!
Good location and hotel, whether on business or pleasure.
Was there for business and I must admit it a nice hotel. Spacious rooms, good amenities, convenient location, good breakfast and friendly staff. The thing that peeved me was their inflexibility when I asked for a late checkout. Allegedly they were busy but I beg to differ. I sat around in the lobby working and hardly saw anyone come in to check in. To add salt to injury we had spent a fortune with them as we were a huge group of close to a hundred rooms. So all in all it’s good but if you are expecting them to be accommodating think twice about this property
We stayed here for some days. The welcome was friendly. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was impressive and very tasty with some nice surprises by Leonardo Serras!
The guest relation team gave always some hints regarding hot spots, public transport e.g.
Mentionable also the bar (inside).
Unfortunately due to the "winter" season, the rooftop-bar was closed at 6 pm.
I also would recommend a tip box for the team.
Two night stay in the hotel , The reception staff were very friendly and professional , All staff that I encountered went out of their way to assist . Great room very comfortable , Really good breakfast with wide rangig choices on the menu
Stayed here for 2 days and I really loved it.
After having to wait 1 hour to check in as a large group we’re leaving it was all uphill.
Beautiful room, amazing shower, beautiful spa and really felt welcome by the staff, they were extremely friendly and attentive.
I am coming back with the family for sure.
