“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

Booked this hotel for a four day break to Lisbon, chosen because of its central location.
On arrival, greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our room which was well appointed on the 4th floor with a good view of the square. The room proved to be very quiet throughout which was excellent. The breakfast was particularly good with plenty of choice, served in an excellent dining room. All staff were attentive and friendly throughout. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We booked this place quite literally at the last moment and got a room on a Sat night for about 160 euro. I love to spoil myself when I can and this place was completely wonderful. Location is to die for and the opulence of the interior is worth (and does demand sometimes) twice the price. Staff were absolute darlings and guess what- when went to pay the bill, full from the lovely breakfast, found that the valet parking in the middle of Lisboa was complimentary. Do it.

Five days stay. Rather calm hotel though conveniently located the city center. The lobby is overwhelming. The bar is english style. We loved the piano player late in the afternoon. The hotel has everything we needed close at hand with staff ready to help us when we needed. We had a room on the 5th floor with a view a beautiful square. Room and bath were spacious but not overly big and everything was clean and working fine. Breakfast was delicious and served in an old style classic room. The price is not small but we knew when we booked that we were not at a budget hotel...and it is really well worth the cost.

We were staying in Lisbon on a special occasion and the hotel upgraded us to a junior suite which was appreciated. We received room 301 which is the only room on the third floor so it was extremely quiet with no neighbors.

The hotel was excellent for the following reasons:
Locaion was great for all of the sites we wanted to visit. Everything was within walking distance and the Rossio train station was next door for trips to Sintra. The metro station is just outside the door as well.
Breakfast had everything, hot and cold, and it seemed like it was included in most room rates because everyone was having their room number marked as they came in. No one was paying at the time.
The hotel was very clean, had "palace" like decor and still was inviting and relaxed
The staff were extremely helpful. We were in Lisbon during a rail strike (which sounds common) and we had to get a number of updates on train schedules for some of the trips we were taking.
One of the bellman was of particular help when he helped me purchase tickets through the machine in the station which was not in English.
The concierges also helped with advice and reservations.
I never used the gym but they do have a bike and 2 elliptical machines.
The lounge and sitting areas were peaceful and had the palatial ambience.

I don't have any negatives that come to mind for this hotel.


As a side note. If you are in Lisbon make the effort to go to Sintra for a day trip and see the Royal Palace, Pena Palace and Moorish Castle.

Room Tip: We had 301 and it was very good.

The Avenida Palace was more than we expected. Great service and ambiance. We drove and once we arrived the hotel staff took over and handled everything from there. Our room was beautiful and immaculate and the soundproofing really worked to keep out the city noise.Public spaces are beautiful.The lounge area has an amazingly high and gorgeous glass ceiling.Breakfast room is lovely.
We would highly recommend staying here.

We spent 4 nights in this lovely hotel in the heart of Lisbon. What a great way to start our Portugal holiday! We we greeted with a nice surprise of an upgrade to a room with adjoining sitting room. The extra space was nice to have and gave us a bit more privacy, not to mention more light from the additional window.

Our bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was extremely clean and serviceable. Even though our room faced the street on the 1st floor ( not ground level), we felt comfortable with the privacy glass in the bathroom. The room was also quiet, with the addition of soundproofing on the windows.

Breakfasts were always great and very relaxing. The selection and quality was superb on food and drink. The pots of coffee and hot milk at our table was a nice touch.

The concierge staff was always helpful. They made dinner recommendations one night, made books for other nights, frequently offered directions and suggested the best mode of transportation. We also had them make photocopies from our travel books so that we didn't need to carry them with us. Very kind!

The hotel is next to the Rossio Train Station which is great if you are traveling to others areas, like Sintra.

We are staying there again when we fly out of Lisbon; can't wait to return!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room on the first floor. Elevators are available to take luggage up/down, but we enj...
