Let's go back to Lisbon, one of our favourite European capitals, which is currently becoming more and more popular, attracting millions of visitors from around the world every year. This shouldn't be surprising for anyone as this cosmopolitan city has a lot of things to offer: historic architecture, great dining and shopping scene, vibrant nightlife, and a very mild climate with up to 2,600 hours of sun each year (more than 300 days of sunshine).

If you are looking for a comfortable, central accommodation, Hotel Expo Astória is definitely a place to consider. This three-star hotel, located in a gorgeous Art Deco style building from the 19th Century, was renovated in 2015 and offers everything you need for a business or leisure stay. Its excellent amenities include a bar and restaurant with an outdoor terrace, a small gym, and 113 guest rooms with air conditioning, telephone, free Wi-Fi, and mini-bar.

There is also a Business Centre where you can use one of the desktop computers (in case you forgot your laptop!), read complimentary newspapers or print your boarding pass.

All guests can enjoy a welcome drink on their arrival (delicious Vinho do Porto, a Portuguese fortified wine produced with distilled grape spirits exclusively in the Douro Valley in the northern provinces of the country). You shouldn't miss it!

Customer service is warm and friendly, and interior design of the hotel offers a lot of surprising elements which make staying there a truly memorable experience.

"Located at a privileged area of Lisbon, a few minutes away from Marquês de Pombal Square, Eduardo VII Park and Avenida da Liberdade, Expo Astória Hotel is an excellent starting point for those who wish to explore the charms of the city. Both the location and the proximity to a wide transport network promise to surprise you!" - Hotel Expo Astória 

Hotel Expo Astória has very high ratings and is recommended by TripAdvisor as well.

Interesting design elements and artwork displayed around the hotel were one of the definite highlights of our stay. The hotel has a unique atmosphere and walking around the lobby feels a lot like being in a modern art gallery.

"If, outside, the Art Deco façade does not leave anyone indifferent, inside, the tones, textures and pieces that adorn the space transform the environment, making it inviting and welcoming. Every detail “fits like a glove” so each guest feels special and involved. Expo Astoria Hotel represents a concept inspired by art and design, where the comfort, the hospitality and personalized service stand out." - Hotel Expo Astória

Excellent Dining

Dining at the Astória Restaurant was a real pleasure as the food was always exceeding our expectations and the atmosphere was very lively in the evenings. It seemed like a popular place not only with tourists, but with locals as well. On both nights during our stay, we chose to dine at the hotel's restaurant instead of going somewhere else. It was not only a very convenient option, but most of all the selection and quality of food was exactly what we were looking for. Thank you for a great dining experience!

"The Astoria Restaurant is a pleasant space that invite to enjoy a memorable gastronomic experience, for all occasions. The decor and the attention to detail combine perfectly with the hospitality, but the journey to the senses begins when the aromas marry the flavors and the colors come to life. Quality and rigor are the main dishes, seasoned with a service of excellence." - Hotel Expo Astória

Take advantage of a Happy Hour (Monday to Friday from 5pm to 8pm) and try one of the signature cocktails, Mojito or Caipirinha, at a special price.
