Stayed four nights from Feb 15th. Looked at the usual big name options and The Avenida seemed much closer to the centre of things - it is. Right next to the main train and metro stations, bus stops (including open topped tour buses & airport bus), elevators, and more restaurants than are strictly necessary. Lovely individual elegantly furnished rooms, nice marble bathrooms, excellent house keeping. Breakfast buffet (7.30 -10.30) is good. Lovely elegant bar without silly London 5* prices - a very drinkable bottle of wine around £17.00, 20% less if you book direct with the hotel website. The hotel restaurant is only used at breakfast, but hundreds of nice restaurants are within a short stroll, we found the As Velhas (traditional and laid back), and Solar dos Presuntos (modern and bustling) particularly good. A bargain is the daily travel pass obtainable from the white kiosk across the road in front of Pinoquio Restaurant. 6.50 Euro for unlimited elevator, bus, metro and tram travel. No discount on museum entry, but about 1/4 the cost of Lisbon Card sold at the Tourist Office 20yds from the hotel. Enjoy!
