Another gorgeous 72 degree sunny day in Portugal, so we took the tram to Belem. First stop was St. Jeronimo's Monastary, even the refectory is beautiful. Paul said the priests lived in a five star hotel, the nuns were probably in Motel 6. After all the convents and monasteries were banned in Portugal the state took over the property and it was used …
... a kilometre to another amazing structure, the Padrao dos Descobrimentos, a monument to the Portuguese age of exploration during the 15th and 16th centuries. All are worth a look and it's a lovely, if small insight to the history of the city. From these monuments we can see across the harbour to a statue of Christ. It is listed in the top five 'things to see' in Lisbon, but having agreed that trying to cram too much in and not taking time to relax does not constitute a real holiday, ...
... out Jason was Goan and suddenly we were getting special attention. The owner and another waiter kept coming over to our table to ask questions and to offer suggestions.
"You are Goan and you do not know Portuguese, what a shame!" They exclaimed in a mix of both English and Portuguese. They wanted to know the names of people in Jason's family (Maria...oh half of the women in Portugal are named Maria) and ...
... in Europe. The sandwiches were topped by fresh grilled fish, amazing Portuguese custard tarts an Sushi, that was so good we went back every night for more. Nights out happened on the streets. On my pubcrawl with the hostel (Raph had passed out in bed while getting ready for the night out) I realised we might've gotten our drink in a bar, but the party was outside. Everyone was merry between the endless bars ...
... draw a tie onto the front of one of my better T-shirts. Lisbon offered up a number of options- unlike the sky-high pricing of London, Lisbon is apparently feeling the pinch of the economic downturn and most pricing we’ve run into are relatively modest for Europe. And just around the corner from our hotel was a men’s shop that had one of those mega-sales going on- this might be the only time in our travels that shopping has made my list of mini-wows but when you pick up ...

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.
