Opened in 1933 in the heart of the grand Avenida da Liberdade, the Tivoli Avenida Liberdade Lisboa is a leading city landmark.

The large lobby atrium is surrounded by marble columns and overlooked by a second-floor gallery, while gilded panels adorned with geometric prints add a touch of Art Deco style. The plush carpets, comfortable seating and large arrays of fresh flowers make it a stately place to relax over a drink or listen to the pianist in residence most evenings. Alternatively, you can head up to the open-air Sky Bar or top-floor Terraço restaurant for panoramic views across Lisbon.

The understated rooms are decorated in a classically elegant fashion and furnished to a very high standard with modern amenities and stylish bathrooms. Attention to detail is key with fine linens, high quality mattresses and a pillow menu to ensure your every comfort. In the basement of the hotel there is a spa and gym, while outside, a circular pool, massage pavilion and pool bar await – a rarity for such a centrally located city hotel.
