... and colourful buildings showcase the day to day life of many of Lisbons residents away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist centres. With interesting commentary and even better views it was a nice way to see more of the city. Lisbon was one of the first cities we have struck queues at many of the attractions. Despite travelling in high season we have been really lucky with never having to wait long to enter anywhere so I think it came as a bit of ...
... They all loved their home country but realize that going elsewhere in Europe is their best chance to escape the burden of the ordinary Portuguese and the ever declining economic future. For a country that survives under the notion of a welfare state but produces very little and operates on a less than competitive level with the rest of the world, their current forecast is bleak indeed.

We took a Segway tour through historical Lisbon.Segway is a personal transporter, you stand on and use your body to control the movement. Ray felt natural and learned it quickly. I was a little unsure so our guide Simone held onto ...

We set up camp and slept there for the night, but none of us did much sleeping. The airport was freezing, my body ached from being so cold. There was nowhere comfortable to lay. We first tried a closed cafe, lining up chairs to make makeshift beds. Then we had to move to a warmer location, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Avenida Palace Lisbon
Best Location in Lisbon
Excellent luxury hotel in the best location in Lisbon, right next to the old town area, walking distance to everything of touristic interest.
Most of the other luxury hotels are farther uptown in the newer area of the city, which has really nothing at all to offer the tourist.
The rooms are good size and well-kept. The decor is a bit frilly and over-the-top (I felt like I was in Queen Victoria's bedroom or something), but it is definitely elegant. We got a corner room with views over the plaza from 2 directions. Breakfast buffet was included.
Service is very prompt and efficient. I highly recommend the Avenida Palace!
Simply the best!!!!
Espectacular historical and renovated building, the best location in Lisbon, soberb service and extremely nice acomodations. We stayed there for 8 days but could stay for 8 months!!!!
The best of the bests
This is by far the best hotel in Lisbon.
They treat their clients with respect, cordiality, discretion. Breakfast is great and the in-room pleasantries are perfect for a vacation or a business trip.
The location is perfect with easy access to all major touristic attractions.
Good not exceptional
I stayed at the Avenida in september 2003 after reading some of the good reviews on this site . We did have a good time but I do not agree totally with other reviewers ; the best of this old fashioned retro hotel is its great location in the middle of everything in Lisbon . The breakfast was good but not exceptional as well as the room which was confortable but not charming at all .The staff was professional but not particularly friendly , I would say quite cold but attentive and helpful if demanded . Would I recommend this hotel ? probably yes , but maybe next time I 'look for something with a warmer atmosphere .
Beautiful Avenida Palace
My husband and I stayed at the Avenida Palace for 4 nights in late August. We were upgraded to a suite upon check-in. Hotel is very lovely with a champagne breakfast in a beautiful dining room. The location was fantastic and we could walk everywhere. No restaurant on the premises but many just a few minutes walk. Would definitely stay there again.
We spent three nights at Hotel Avenida and were most happy about the service, room, price etc .... we initially booked a two single-beds room and were upgraded to a suite upon arrival. the price was very reasonable for a 5 star hotel in the heart of Lisbon. the concierge had been especially helpful when we needed to buy 3 airplane tickets for the same day to Madrid.
We would strongly recommend Hotel Avenida to anyone who stays at Lisbon!
Perfect Lisbon Hotel
Just got back from 3 weeks in Europe with a 3-day stay at the Avenida Palace Hotel in Lisbon. Can't say enough good things about this hotel -- perfect location in heart of Lisbon, lovely and relatively large room with beautiful view of St. Jorge's Castle, stunning common rooms, excellent service, reasonably priced. We paid 150 Euros per night including breakfast, reserved with Utell. B. Nichols, Woodlawn, VA.
Old fashioned charm in Lisbon
I stayed in the Avenida Palace for three days with my partner in June 2003. It is centrally situated, being just off the Rossio and Liberdade, beautifully furnished with antiques and has rooms of a very high standard. The staff are attentive and the public rooms are stunning. The breakfast was okay but could have been more substantial for a five star hotel. I stayed during one of the June parades but the double glazing was effective when I wanted to do to sleep! I would recommend it as a small luxury hotel.
The renovated hotel has a lot of old world charm and is beautifully furnished in antique style. Impossible to be more centrally situated, from here you can reach anything in Lisbon without problems (can mean some traffic noise, ask for an inside room facing the central courtyard.) Would definitely return there.
Avenida Palace, Lisboa, Dec '02
Stayed 3 nights in Dec. 02. Perfect location, Restaurdores metro station right outside. Rossio station is just down the street. Many many restaurants close by. I had a lovely room, with a view to the Castle, and Rossio Square. Rooms have double paned windows, so no noise problems. The included breakfast was very good, in a pretty spectacular room. Great service, I would definitely stay there again.
