A friend and I recently returned from a 3 night visit to Lisbon and stayed at the Hotel Alif Avenidas. There are plus and minus points regarding this hotel. On the plus side it is opposite a metro entrance which is on the red line and therefore a direct, quick and easy journey to the airport (make sure you take the exit Av. Duque D'Avila which can be found by searching on the signs on the metro platform - not immediately obvious and are at one end of the platform and not the other) The hotel is also very convenient for the Gulbenkian Museum, the adjacent Modern Art Gallery and the lovely park in which these two are housed. The centre of Lisbon can easily be reached by the metro (about a ten minute journey). The hotel is spotlessly clean, has comfortable beds, a great shower, friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast. On the minus side we asked to change rooms because we had requested a nice view and were initially put at the back of the hotel where the view is non-existent apart from windows and building work. Once we had been moved to the front of the hotel we were much happier and the road wasn't noisy. There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room so if you like to make a morning cuppa then take your own kettle. If you like a hotel where you can walk out of the front door and be surrounded by choices of restaurants and be in the centre of activity then this is not the one for you (although as previously mentioned these things can be found by a 10 minute metro journey) One last point is that the hotel does not sell alcohol. We had a nice stay and would possibly stay at this hotel again due to its proximity to the metro although I personally prefer to be a little more in the centre of things.
