Heritage Avenida Liberdade Hotel
Located at the bottom of the Avenida da Liberdade and offering easy access to the downtown Baixa area of Lisbon, the Heritage Avenida Liberdade Hotel makes a great base from which to explore. It is housed in a converted 18th-century townhouse, and retains many elegant period features from the traditional light blue façade to the restored azulejo tile work and wooden shutters. The hotel does not have a dining room, but on the ground floor you’ll find a comfortable lounge and lobby bar where breakfast is served each morning sitting around coffee tables on comfortable sofas. During the day guests can also enjoy complimentary tea, coffee and Port.
The rooms are simply but classically furnished and draw on elements of Lisbon’s history in their design. All boast wooden floors and all but the top floor rooms offer large floor-to-ceiling windows, most of which open out on to small French balconies.
In the basement, you’ll find a small wellness area with an indoor spa-pool and gym while above reception, a quiet mezzanine contains a reading area and internet point. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
High ceilings, large windows, wooden floors and neutral tones give the rooms at the hotel a very calm and tranquil atmosphere. The decor is simple and classical in style with black-and-white photographs of Lisbon in times past on the walls. Most rooms feature small French balconies. The Heritage category rooms in particular boast lovely views across the Avenida da Liberdade or Torel Belvedere, while the modern bathrooms are well-equipped and contain a good range of amenities. A pillow menu is also available.
Conveniently located at the bottom of the grand Avenida Liberdade, the hotel is around ten minutes' walk from Rossio and the downtown Baixa area. Lisbon’s luxury shops are right on your doorstep and just at the end of the adjacent side street you’ll find the historic Ascensor do Lavra tram, one of the oldest in Lisbon, which runs up the steep hill behind the hotel.
Food and Drink
Breakfast each morning is a hot and cold buffet served in the ground floor lounge-bar sitting around coffee tables on plush sofas. Dishes include a selection of fruit, pastries, cereals, cheese, cold meats, salmon and kippers. While there is no restaurant at the hotel, there are plenty of excellent dining options within easy walking distance or a short taxi journey away. Complimentary tea, coffee and Port are served each day in the bar.
Facilities and Activities
As well as offering a concierge and 24-hour reception service, the hotel has a selection of great facilities to take advantage of. In the basement there is a small gym along with an indoor spa-pool for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. There is also a library area with a 24-hour internet point and a printer.
A classically styled hotel in a great location, we find the Heritage Avenida Liberdade Hotel to be a comfortable and convenient central option for exploring Lisbon.
