Location

Avenida Palace enjoys a privileged position on the Rua 1° Dezembro – the street that hosts the likes of the Monumento dos Restauradores, a 17th century needle, and the Museu Nacional do Desporto, Portugal’s National Museum of Sport. You’ll also have the city’s more recognisable names right on your doorstep, from St. George’s Castle and its medieval battlements to Lisbon’s Cathedral and its competing architectural styles. But outside of its headline-grabbing sites, Lisbon entices with a heady range of cultural experiences, with delightful restaurants and lively bars around each corner.

Accommodation

Designed and built in the late 19th century, this is the only palace in the centre of Lisbon. As such it’s a Belle Époque exclusive, replete with a delightfully classic sense of grace evidenced in the rooms’ candelabra-style lighting, moulded timber detailing, dark wood inlay and marble bathrooms. Richly coloured fabrics round off the aesthetic, while suites add in gilded detailing and views over St. George’s Castle, the palace’s internal courtyard or the Praça dos Restauradores and its aforementioned monument. Upgrade to the Suite Palace for your very own hydromassage bathtub.

Dining

Breakfast is included with every stay, with guests treated to both hot and cold spreads presented under chandelier lighting. Expect fresh fruits, Lisbon’s favourite custard tarts and cold cuts paired with an excellent range of cheese and just-baked breads. The hotel also serves up its famous ‘Palace Afternoon Tea’. Consisting of gourmet sandwiches, scones and pastries, the extensive tea menu is presented – seasonally accompanied by live piano – in the extravagantly dressed lounge room. For dinner and lunch you’ll have to head out. But, thanks to the hotel’s superb location, you won’t have to wander far to fine some of Portugal’s famed gastronomy. 

Facilities

Speaking of music, the Avenida Palace has a truly impressive programme of performances. Most evenings, in the Palace Lounge, everything from soprano songbooks to Mozart piano recitals are represented. For further night-time entertainment, head to the English-style bar to enjoy an extensive menu of craft cocktails prepared by the hotel’s expert mixologists. You’ll also have the use of a cosy library and a state-of-the-art gym, furnished with treadmills and weight machines. Soothe any resultant aches with a massage, available booked in advance.
