This week we have stayed at the Avenida Palace hotel for the second time while in Lisboa for a conference. The conference itself was held at an international hotel not far from the airport but obviously we prefer the ambiance of the city centre and commuted to the conference. Traffic is not too much of a problem and taxis are cheap.
Just like the previous time we felt very welcome at the hotel. The reception staff knew we had stayed there before. Arriving before the official check-in time was no problem, we got a room upgrade, free water and fruits during our stay. The last day of our stay we asked for a late check out since our flight was only at 20.00 h and again this was no problem at all, which was very much appreciated.
The nice thing about the hotel is that it is a real and original classical hotel. It hasn’t been modified to become part of one of the big hotel chains and yet every detail in the hotel is impeccable and extremely well maintained. The palace atmosphere is really there and one of the nicest ways to experience this is at breakfast that is served in a majestic hall.
Beside the ambiance and the service of course the location is very good, with so many nice places and sights within walking distance.
If business or leisure brings us back to Lisboa, we surely will stay here again.
