In what was once a government building, this boutique addition to the Altis group offers glamour and comfort in a central location ideal for sightseeing. The original modernist facade, with its art deco touches, now gleams, and inside is a mix of vintage and modern styles. Black and cream prevails though the guest rooms but mauve, green, beige, and mocha put in an appearance. Breakfast in the rooftop restaurant, with its views straight up the leafy Avenida da Liberdade, is a great way to start the day. There is a bar here, too. The hotel welcomes small pets for an extra €25 a night. Guests may use the pool and gym of the Hotel Altis on Rua Castilho.
