Stayed at the Altis Suites with my wife for a week in April 2014. Booked direct with the hotel's website and had very good communication with them throughout.
Could not use the free hotel shuttle bus which goes to/from the airport, as it operates to a fixed and rather infrequent timetable. The hotel offered to arrange a car, but at Euro47 when a taxi is only a ten minute, Euro15 or so ride, we declined.
Good check in and reception staff, with no problem at all and most helpful.
The room was a good size, well maintained and clean. Excellent and large bed. The kitchenette could have been a bit better equipped (no two glasses or cups were the same size, for example) but it had everything we needed and we were delighted to find that the daily maid service did the washing up!
As others have said, it does suffer a little from noise of footsteps through wooden floors, but it is not a big deal and generally we had a very tranquil and comfortable stay. Just right after long days out in brilliant Lisbon.
Wifi is free but the signal did not reach to our 12th floor apartment! Could obtain no signal at all, so had to go and sit in reception to get online. Views from the apartment (at the rear of the building) were good because of the height but of course the Altis is in a business area so all you see are offices and roofs of other buildings. It can't be much better at the front.
The Altis is well located. It is only a five minute walk to Avenida or Marques de Pombal Metro stations and only about ten minutes to Praca Restauradores. There is a little Mini Preco supermarket just around the corner, which has a good range of stuff for breakfast etc. I would also recommend the 709 bus, which departs from near the supermarket and goes to Restauradores. The return journey saves you a bit of an uphill walk to the hotel, in comparison with Metro or foot journeys.
Not sure it happens every week but there was very nice bric-a-brac/antique market on Avenida da Liberdade (two minutes from the hotel) on Sunday morning.
Overall, a good base and no complaints from us.
