Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Central location, within walking distance of many sights and neighborhoods
  • Elegant rooms with plush bedding, marble bathrooms, and TVs in the mirrors
  • 12th floor restaurant with sweeping views, a cozy lobby bar, and a coffee shop
  • Health Club with a fitness center, indoor pool, saunas, and treatment rooms
  • Business-friendly, with 18 meeting rooms and 24-hour room service
  • Free airport shuttle service (guests must make reservations)
  • Spacious marble lobby with big art installations and lounge space

Cons

  • Some complaints about the breakfast buffet
  • Dark hallways can seem a bit uninviting
  • Fee for Wi-Fi in some rooms

Bottom Line

With 300 rooms, the Altis Hotel is the largest property in the Altis chain. Elegant rooms are a decent size with plush bedding, marble bathrooms, and TVs embedded in the mirrors. A major renovation was completed in 2011, and rooms feel fresh and contemporary. The hotel's long list of amenities includes a restaurant on the 12th floor with great city views, a cozy lobby bar, and a coffee shop. The Altis also has a health club with an indoor pool, fitness center, and several treatment rooms. While this property has a reputation as a business hotel, it also attracts tourists with its convenient location near numerous attractions. A spacious marble lobby features large art installations and plenty of space to sit. However, some guests have complained that the breakfast buffet is a little disappointing, and there's a pesky fee for Wi-Fi in some rooms.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Sao Mamede, near the university and botanical gardens

The Altis Hotel is located in Sao Mamede, an area of Lisbon just west of Avenida da Liberdade, the main artery of the city. The tree-lined street features numerous high-end hotels and shops.

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is a 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 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.
