Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient, central location within walking distance of numerous attractions
  • Spacious suites with kitchenettes, sitting areas, and flat-screen TVs
  • Some suites have balconies or terraces with views over Lisbon's rooftops
  • Access to the Altis Hotel's amenities, including the health club and restaurant
  • 24-hour room service is available
  • Free airport shuttle service (guests must make advance reservations)

Cons

  • Room decor is bland and the bathrooms are dated
  • Kitchenettes do not have full refrigerators

Bottom Line

Altis Suites is located right next to the Altis Hotel, and its 42 suites are a good option for families or travelers on extended stays. These mid-range suites are spacious, but dated, with coral-colored bathrooms and furniture that's showing light wear and tear. However, all suites have kitchenettes -- with stovetops, microwaves, and mini-fridges -- living rooms, and flat-screen TVs. Guests staying in the suites have access to the amenities of the Altis Hotel next door including the health club and restaurant. There is 24-hour room service, and free airport shuttle service can be arranged in advance.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Sao Mamede, near the university and botanical gardens

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

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.

  • 17-minute drive to Lisbon Portela Airport, or 33 minutes via public transportation
  • 2-minute walk to the Botanical Gardens of the university
  • 3-minute walk to Aberta University
  • 5-minute walk to the Baixa, the financial district
  • 6-minute walk to Avenida de Liberdade
  • 14-minute walk to Rossio, a main square
  • 14-minute walk to Barrio Alto, the heart of Lisbon's nightlife
  • 16-minute walk to Chiado, the main shopping area
  • 21-minute walk to the Santa Justa historic elevator, with great views
  • 22-minute walk to Praca de Comercio, a beautiful plaza facing the river
  • 26-minute walk to the National Museum of Ancient Art, or 11 minutes via public transportation
  • 7-minute drive to Casa dos Bicos, or 10 minutes via public transportation
  • 8-minute drive to St. George's Castle, or 23 minutes via public transportation
  • 8-minute drive to Alfama, a Moorish area with fado clubs, or 19 minutes via public transportation
  • 15-minute drive to the the Coach Museum, the largest museum of royal coaches in the world, or 26 minutes via public transportation
  • 16-minute drive to the Jeronimos Monastery, or 28 minutes via public transportation
  • 17-minute drive to the Belem Tower, or 36 minutes via public transportation
