Historical Traveler Reviews Aviz Hotel Lisbon
A Top Lisbon Option...
We can highly recommend this Lisbon hotel, which has recently been refurbed. The main pluses were:
- The rooms: We were upgraded to the Frank Sinatra suite on arrival, and it was very comfortable!
- The price: Through nethotels we got a very competitive rate (EUR105 a night for a double) - although I imagine it will be more difficult to get such a discount in the future as the hotel becomes more popular.
- The location: A 10 minute walk to the city centre and right next to the Marques Pombal tube station
- The breakfast: A fantastic buffet!
All in all, a great stay in a top European destination.
Loved the Aviz
I and my husband stayed at the Aviz Hotel in Lisbon during a weekend break. The hotel location is great, within a walking distance from the very historical city centre. Just 10 minutes way from Chiado, Bairro Alto, Sé. The hotel staff was very friendly and helped with everything you might need: the car park, a map of the city and instructions. The room was very nice, not too big but very comfortable and pleasant decoration. The bathroom was big, very clean and new. The buffet breakfast was good with a wide selection. The hotel keeps a classic style of decoration and services, keeping the class of the "old days" (but brand new).
The days in Aviz were perfect and we will for sure return when again in Lisbon.
Fantastic stay at a fantastic hotel
We spent four nights at the Hotel Aviz in late November, 2006. We had a lovely signature suite on the fifth floor. The room was in perfect shape, and spotlessly clean. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. We had booked our stay through the internet at a very favorable price, about one-third the posted rate, but received royal treatment by everyone at the hotel.
We enjoyed a birthday dinner at the hotel one night. While the price was a bit high by Lisbon standards, the food was excellent and the restaurant staff was extremely attentive.
We loved our stay in Lisbon. The hotel was magnificent and we had had a fabulous time. We cannot wait to return for a longer stay.
Ganz neu, super Lage, Sauna, Internet, Parkplatz inclusive!! Hier buchen!!
Was braucht man mehr? schönes echtes 4 Sterne Boutique Hotel in ruhiger Seitenstrasse der Avenida Liberdade (U-Bahn Marques de Pompal um die Ecke) 2005 eröffnet. Geräumige Zimmer (meist Blick auf Nachbargebäude), stilvoll eingerichtet (Bilder, Stilmöbel, echter Parkettfussboden, Bad komplett Marmor, Design- Waschbecken), Klimaanlage (Schaltung im Zimmer!), Flatscreen TV, gratis Internet (Laptop erfoderlich) und vor allem: absolute Ruhe !
Frühstücksbüffet im angeschlossnenen (berühmten) Gourmetrestaurant "Aviz" lässt kaum Wünsche offen (bis 10:30) zur "rushhour" müssen Sie Wartezeiten einkalkulieren....
Parkplatz und Sauna/Dampfbad im 8ten Stock sind immer inclusive (viele Hotels in Portugal berechnen hierfür recht happige Extragebühren!!). Wir waren wohl unter den ersten, die die Sauna benutzten (max. 3-4 Personen)? Zum Ausruhen danach draussen auf der Dachterasse über den Dächern von Lisboa!!
Fazit: ein glänzender Stern unter den 150 Hotels in Lissabon mit bestem Preis-Leistungsverhältnis (Lage, Service, Preis) Einziger Nachteil: wegen des hohen Beliebheitgrades immer recht frühzeitig ausgebucht ;-))
Tip: buchen Sie rechtzeitig (!!) direkt beim Hotel per email oder fax (92 EUR)
We booked via Venere & read Tripadviser reviews first. Aviz was like walking into an Oasis after a long journey. The staff welcomed us, answered every single question with a smile & nothing seemed wastoo much trouble. Its a first class hotel without the price tag. The full breakfast were the best of our 5 week journey around Spain & Portugal. The rooms are so stunning that you'll want to replicate its decor. They are beautifully cleaned every day (5 nts) & a chocolate was left on our pillows. ALL the staff are the same - polite, well groomed & friendly. Its well-located 1 min. walk from Pombal metro.
Its hard to find any criticism however, I found the bed a little firm whereas my husband loved it.
My husband and I spent 3 nights at this wonderful Hotel. Our room was quite spacious and had a very comfortable king bed. It was also great to have an LCD TV, bathrobes and big bath towels. The lovely marble bathroom was quite roomy and had a powerful shower. Breakfast was included in our rate and was exceptional, everything from cereals, bacon & eggs to 'fresh' fruit and pastries and smoked salmon! Usually, this is a rarity in continental Europe!! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I also wish to compliment the barman who made me one of the best vodka martini's I have ever had! In fact I had two! The location was very central, about a 10 minute walk to the old town and a 2 minute walk to the metro station. We highly recommend this hotel, and would look no further than the Hotel Aviz when we return to Lisbon.
Date 20th June 2006
Spent 4 nights in the Hotel Aviz at the end of May. The room was beautiful with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was large with a very powerful shower. Our room was on the first floor and had no view but as we were out sightseeing most of the time this was no problem. There was a mini heatwave the weekend we were there and the air-conditioning in the room kept everything lovely and cool. The best bit was the complimentary breakfast which included everything you could possibly want(including smoked salmon!). The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is seconds away from Marques de Pombal metro. There is a small, furnished terrace on the roof, which I didn't find until the morning we were leaving. We got a very good price for this hotel using the internet. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.
Beautiful new boutique hotel...
I stayed at the Aviz for 2 nights in June 2006 - I wish it was for longer, it is a wonderful hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was small but very nice, with a fantastic bathroom and an LCD television. This is a new boutique hotel that replaces the old hotel Aviz; Lisbon's first luxury hotel. The location is good, about 10 mins walk to downtown. The hotel is located on a quiet street. Highly recommended. 5* service for a 4* price.

... next to theirs so none could sit there either. So frustrating how selfish some Europeans are here.
We finally sit down in separate tables but the table next to Mum and Dad frees up and we dive into their seats and order our meals. Mum, Dad and I tuck into another seafood rice and Leesh has a grilled salmon and bean dish. Each of us get a mean meal and we are out the door after an hour or so. We come across a really cool store built inside ...

He suggested we get tickets for all three castles here, and a bus ticket, which will save time in waiting in horrendous lines, later on. After making sure we had everything we needed, Joe said he would be waiting for us at the car. Take our time, and enjoy. Joe spoke absolutely, letter perfect English. We walked through the entrance, and were instantly transported into the 18th century. This ...

When we found the free parking we were looking for, the spaces were taken but as Richard turned the Burkemobil around to go an old Portuguese guy directed us next door where there was plenty of room. Soon the old guy was collecting a euro from us and the convoy of motor homes that had followed and then nipped off to the bar across the road. After a five hour run the next day, we limped into a Biologico parque, our last stop in Portugal with a puncture ...
