Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Modern boutique in Belem, a neighborhood on the Tagus River
  • Convenient for strolls along the promenade and restaurants lining the river
  • Sexy, spacious rooms with all-white decor and big flat-screen TVs
  • Open marble bathrooms, some with inviting soaking tubs
  • Some rooms have balconies and Jacuzzis with gorgeous marina views
  • Large indoor pool with a cold tank and spa with saunas and treatment rooms
  • Two restaurants (one Michelin-rated) and a bar with a terrace overlooking the river
  • Free Wi-Fi, free airport shuttle (arranged in advance), and 24-hour room service

Cons

  • Sexy open bathrooms lack privacy
  • Fitness center is sleek but small
  • Popular restaurant often requires reservations
  • Belem is somewhat isolated from central Lisbon, but offers its own attractions

Bottom Line

The Altis Belem Hotel & Spa is a 50-room boutique in Belem, a residential neighborhood on the Tagus River. Belem is slightly removed from the city center, but has several of its own attractions, as well as gorgeous marina views and lovely restaurants lining the river. The hotel's rooms are sexy and spacious, with white decor accented by green rugs and unusual wall murals. Marble bathrooms are open -- with little privacy -- and some have inviting soaking tubs. Some rooms also have balconies with marina views and private whirlpools. Despite its small size, this hotel has many amenities, including a spa, a big indoor pool, a fitness center, and a Michelin-rated restaurant. Guests that want to be within walking distance of more attractions might consider the Altis Avenida, also a boutique hotel, with modern rooms in the city center.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the serene neighborhood of Belem, overlooking the Tagus River

The Altis Belem is located in a residential neighborhood called Belem where Lisbon's river opens up to the sea. This area is known for historic monuments, museums, famous pastry shops, and a scenic promenade along the river. Lisbon is also known for its lively nightlife. Fado clubs play this beautiful, mournful music all night long in areas such as Barrio Alto and Alfama.

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 its proximity to quaint, seaside beach towns. 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.
