In Campo das Nacoes, the former site of Expo ’98
The Tivoli Oriente is located in a new area of Lisbon, right on the former grounds of Expo ’98 (a World's Fair site). While it is far from tourist attractions, it is very close to the airport, and there are stores, restaurants and a casino down the street. However, what makes the location attractive is its proximity to Gare do Oriente, a major transportation hub located right next door to the property. Oriente Station offers easy access to metro, bus, trains and cabs, which puts the city center within easy reach -- it takes about 25 minutes to get to the heart of the action in central Lisbon.
Located right by the former Expo site and a short drive from the airport, the Tivoli Oriente is a great pick for business travelers, or any travelers with early flights. While it is far from tourist attractions, it’s next door to the Gare do Oriente, a major transportation hub with access to the metro, trains, buses and taxis, providing easy access to the city center. All but the Classic Rooms have been renovated, and feature contemporary decor with bright pops of color, clean, red-lacquered bathrooms, and modern amenities, such as iHome docks, Nespresso machines, flat-screen TVs and minibars. Business-oriented conveniences include a business center, meeting rooms, and a solid fitness center. There’s a restaurant and a bar on-site, but numerous other restaurants, as well as shops and a casino, are within walking distance.
