Hidden behind the Avenida da Liberdade, the Lisboa Plaza Hotel is a family-owned property with classic charm and an intimate atmosphere. The building dates back to 1953 and retains many of its original modernist features.
Lisboa Plaza is "brilliantly located" (Lonely Planet) on a quiet street to the north of the city centre, a few minutes on foot from the Avenida da Liberdade -- Lisbon's answer to the Champs Élysées -- and its metro station. It's a short walk to the neighbouring National Museum of Natural History and Science and the tropical plants and hothouses in the university's botanical gardens. The restaurants, cafés and shops in the downtown areas of Chiado, Bairro Alto and Baixa can be reached in around 15 minutes by foot.
The complimentary breakfast can be taken in your room or eaten in the wood-panelled dining room, where the extensive American-style buffet is generously supplied with fruit, yoghurt, pastries, eggs, bacon and even bubbly on the weekends. The restaurant is also available for evening meals, and light meals and snacks are available at the bar during the day. The hotel has a small gym, and there is a 5th-floor terrace with views over Lisbon where non-alcoholic drinks are served from the honesty bar(alcoholic drinks and food can be ordered from there via room service).
The bedrooms look a little more old-fashioned than the contemporary, pared-down minimalism of the hotel’s public rooms, but they have all the usual mod cons, including double-glazed windows, satellite television, CD/DVD players, mini bars and free Wi-Fi. Frommer's recommends opting for a room to the rear for views over the botanical gardens. There are 12 Junior Suites/Family Rooms offering more space, and smoking and anti-allergen rooms are available. Small pets are allowed for no extra fee.
