In August we spent a couple of nights at the Avenida Palace Hotel in Lisbon prior to joining a cruise. The hotel has all the charm and elegance of days gone by but has nonetheless been brought into the 21st century. We were upgraded from a superior room to a junior suite on the 6th floor which gave us a good view of the city without any of the noise down below due to the double glazing. The staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast lacked for nothing. We noted that the bed was rather hard for us but were told that it was a new mattress which needed "wearing in". It is conveniently situated right in the centre for sightseeing and restaurants, which is indeed an added bonus and one of the reasons we chose it.
If you are looking for an ultra modern newly built hotel, then this is not for you, but for a classic, elegantly furnished 5 star property with good service and great position, surely it must be hard to beat. On any future visit we would certainly stay here again.
