If having Lisbon’s airport and main railway station on your doorstep sounds convenient, the Tivoli makes for a fine choice of accommodation.
The hotel is in a modern area of Lisbon developed in line with World Expo ’98, Parque das Nações. The Tagus offers the suburb lovely river-frontage and walking paths stretch along the shoreline. The river can also be admired from the Tivoli’s 16 th floor Sky Bar – a big, airy space complete with 360 degrees across the water and city. The bar’s food specialty is sushi, but if you’d prefer something heavier, make your way to the T-Bone restaurant. As the name suggests, this place is all about the steak. Onsite there is also the Tivoli Caffé Oriente, which is a good spot for coffee or lunch. The rooms here are sleek and modern, having undergone refurbishment in 2016. Some come with funky padded cube bedheads in blue or red, while others rock feature walls created with bold patterned wallpaper. All rooms feel clean and comfortable and if you’re on an upper floor you can nab a smashing view. The hotel is kitted out with a heated indoor swimming pool, spa tub and a spiffy fitness centre to keep your health in check.
Location: The hotel is three kilometres from the airport and sits right alongside the Oriente railway station. Lisbon’s downtown area is reachable in around 20-30 minutes on public transport.
Oceanário de Lisboa: Lisbon has one of Europe’s most impressive aquariums, where fish, sharks and other sealife lazily drift in 5 million litres of water. Exhibits cover the Antarctic, Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
Centro Comercial Vasco da Gama: Shop ‘til you drop in this large shopping centre by the Tagus River.
Torre Vasco da Gama: As well as a shopping centre, explorer Vasco da Gama also has a tower named after him. You can ascend the 145 metres to admire a stunning view from the top.
Galeria Underdogs: This street art gallery is co-owned by ‘Portugal’s Banksy’, Vhils.
Casino Lisboa: You can stroll down to the casino if you’re feeling lucky or want to catch a concert or performance.
