Just off of lively Avenida da Liberdade
Tivoli Lisboa has a great, central location for tourists. Just off of Avenida da Liberdade, the hotel is within walking distance of the Avenida metro stop and the heart of Baxia, Chiado, and Bairro Alto neighborhoods.
Avenida da Liberdade, Lisbon's main artery, is a tree-lined street packed with high-end hotels and shops. But Bairro Alto is also a bustling area in Lisbon. Popular due to its lively nightlife spots, it is also home to vintage and antique shops. The cobblestone streets are often crowded with people, as are the area's bars and restaurants. Largely spared during the earthquake, Bairro Alto has some beautiful historic monuments and sights. Like in other areas of Lisbon, visitors should be careful in Bairro Alto at night, especially on the side streets; they have a reputation for loitering drug dealers.
Nearby Alfama, a Moorish area, is a fishing town with great fado clubs. Like Barrio Alto, it can also be a bit dangerous at nights. Baxia, the financial district, attracts mainly business travelers. But it does have good shopping, particularly for gold and silver. West of Baxia, Chiado is the main shopping district.
The 306-room is an attractive, upscale hotel in a great location just off of Avenida da Liberdade's bustling sidewalks. The hotel lacks a spa, but has all of the other amenities of a luxury property -- a pool, a fitness center, and two gourmet restaurants. The lobby makes a welcoming and luxurious first impression: It's surrounded by marble columns on all sides and features colorful velvet furniture and various sculptures. Rooms are stylish and contemporary, with plush beds, velvet accent chairs, and floor-to-ceiling photos of the city -- as well as flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and coffeemakers. Another great highlight are the hotel's views -- guests can enjoy sweeping views of the city, especially from the terrace bar and restaurant. It will cost you a pretty penny, but the Tivoli Lisboa is a great option for both location and style in Lisbon.
