    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.

    Lovely Avenida!


    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.

    I left my heart in Lisbon.....

    ... line to get in was equally impressive; we were not willing to wait in the que, in the sun to get in – we have a short day here in Lisbon, so we shall walk.

    We walked up and down hills through the old town and city center. Here we found old tram cars similar to the F line at home…only considerably smaller. As we made our way down from the castle, I came upon a sign. This sign read: URINOL with a little boy peeing. ...

    Unconventionally Catholic?

    ... by such a traditional faith one of the world's most unconventional in regards to drug policy?

    After my experience in Portugal, I would venture to say that this uncanny combination of Catholicism and progressiveness stems from both the influence of the past and the shifting general attitude of the future. Because Portugal was under the oppressive dictatorship of ...

    ... and species of the water. After heading back into town and stopping by a church to say some Easter prayers, we decided to spend our last night in Lisbon enjoying some typical Portuguese food and music. We enjoyed a delicious Portuguese buffet and then made our way to a tiny local "Fado" house to enjoy the famous style of music, which is similar to that of blues-folkish music. Although I couldn't understand a single word of any song, the small local atmosphere was ...

    ... out that this was also part of the defenses of the city (and others), in that the attackers had no direct access to get near the castle, and that as the castles were always at the top of a hill, with or without cliffs/rock walls, they were at a distinct disadvantage when they finally arrived at the castle walls.

    Exploring in the Alfama district, past houses built everywhich way, we found the statue to St Vincente, ...

    ... badly I felt like I was in the desert.) First stop was Pena Palace - probably the thing I've been looking forward to the most. Today was all about seeing as much as I could, while also looking after my poor feet. So like the laziest of lazies, I paid for golf buggy transfer up to the palace. The entrance reminded me slightly of Neuschwanstein, with the mixed colours and outer gate. But Pena is even more undecided about which colour it would like to be, with the main wall of ...
