Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located in the heart of Lisbon near sights and lively neighborhoods
  • Decor inspired by the 1940s, from the pretty lobby to the rooms
  • Elegant rooms with marble bathrooms and big flat-screen TVs
  • All rooms have free Wi-Fi, some have terraces with city views
  • Chic rooftop bar and restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating
  • Free airport shuttle (guests must make advance reservations)

Cons

  • No spa, fitness center, or pool (but guests have access to the sister hotel's amenities)

Bottom Line

The Altis Avenida is an elegant 70-room boutique in the heart of Lisbon. Attractions such as Avenida de Liberdade, St. George's Castle, and the lively Bairro Alto neighborhood are all within easy walking distance. The building dates back to the 1940s, and decor in the lobby and the rooms is inspired by this decade. The rooms are filled with design details and a color palette of gold, soft purples, and black. In-room amenities include luxurious marble bathrooms, big flat-screen TVs, free Wi-FI, and 24-hour room service. A chic rooftop bar and restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating along with beautiful city views. This Altis lacks the on-site amenities of some other hotels in the chain -- it has no spa, pool, or fitness center -- but it is a stylish, modern pick with fun design.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a central location next to the Restauradores subway stop

The Altis Avenida Hotel has a great location in the heart of Lisbon. Next to the Restauradores subway stop as well as a tram stop, the Avenida is within easy walking distance of Avenida de Liberdade and the heart of Baxia, Chiado, and Bairro Alto neighborhoods.

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is a beautiful, colorful city overlooking the Atlantic. Like Rome and San Francisco, Lisbon is a city built on seven hills; but it has an Athens-like vibe with white-washed, red-roofed buildings, a fishing community, and laid-back people. Though many buildings were destroyed in the Great Earthquake of 1755, Lisbon still has a rich history (including historic buildings and cobblestone streets).

Originally referred to as the "eighth wonder of the world," Lisbon was a major importer of exotic goods from Europe and Asia. But nowadays, Lisbon can be overlooked due to the popularity of the quaint, seaside beach towns nearby. But those who love the city can tell visitors the many things they miss when skipping over Lisbon; it is a city of iconic historic buildings (such as St. George's Castle), extensive museums, and fabulous shopping -- particularly for gold, silver, and antiques.

  • 18-minute drive to Lisbon Portela Airport, or 24 minutes via public transportation
  • 2-minute walk to the Restauradores subway stop
  • 3-minute walk to Rossio, a main square
  • 4-minute walk to Avenida de Liberdade
  • 5-minute walk to the heart of Baixa
  • 7-minute walk to Chiado
  • 8-minute walk to the Santa Justa historic elevator, with great views
  • 10-minute walk to Praca de Comercio, a beautiful plaza facing the river
  • 14-minute walk to Casa dos Bicos
  • 17-minute walk to Barrio Alto
  • 20-minute walk to St. George's Castle
  • 21-minute walk to Alfama
  • 8-minute drive to the National Museum of Ancient Art, or 17 minutes via public transportation
  • 15-minute drive to the the Coach Museum, the largest museum of royal coaches in the world, or 24 minutes via public transportation
  • 15-minute drive to the Lisbon Botanical Gardens, or 26 minutes via public transportation
  • 17-minute drive to the Belem Tower, or 34 minutes via public transportation
  • 17-minute drive to the Jeronimos Monastery, or 26 minutes via public transportation
