Cheap hotels in Avenida da Liberdade, Lisbon
Running between the Restauradores metro station just north of the Estação do Rossio and the Marquês de Pombal metro station, the Avenida da Liberdade is Lisbon's "Grand Boulevard." Lined with pricey shops, monstrous modern office buildings and restaurants, it is a broad and impressive boulevard, quite grand in spots.
Architecturally newer than Baixa (and older than Saldanha) the Avenida is a major artery. As a general rule, the farther you walk from the river along Avenida da Liberdade, the more modern it becomes. Nearby you'll find the lovely Botanical Gardens.
Address Rua Da Glória, 9 (Avenida da Liberdade)
The two-star Hotel Suiço Atlántico currently has a split personality: It offers 95 rooms that are either dated or boutique-y. Either way, it plunks you down near Restauradores Square and the Barrio Alto at a fair price.
