Anchoring the leafy Praça da Alegria to the south, the cheery Residencial Alegria offers 35 fresh rooms with bursts of color at very reasonable rates.
Step in from the park to the Alegria's lobby, which welcomes you with polished marble, fresh flowers and attractive décor. Throughout, the hotel mixes both traditional and trendy design elements, in a crown molding-meets-Kodachrome kind of way.
Guest rooms, all nonsmoking, are attractively painted in bold blues, purples and reds and have hardwood floors and attractive wooden desks and chairs. All rooms are equipped with soundproof windows, air conditioning, satellite TV and telephone. Fourteen rooms open to the park and have wrought iron railings or small balconies, while 21 others face a quiet back street. While we're tempted to advise everyone to go for a park view, they may be a bit louder.
Freshly tiled baths are of an adequate size, and the new sinks have room for toiletries. Bathtubs are installed in all but three rooms and all bathrooms are equipped with a hair dryer.
The Residencial Alegria is located directly on the Praça da Alegria, one block off Avenida da Liberdade. While the park is quite lovely during the day, it also seems popular with some slumbering homeless locals—who shouldn't be any bother to guests.
Breakfast is served for €5. An Internet station is offered in the lobby for a fee.

Avenida da Liberdade, Lisbon, Portugal
About the Residencial Alegria neighborhood
The Avenida da Liberdade runs between two metro stations and is Lisbon's "Grand Boulevard." Lined with pricey shops, office buildings and restaurants, it's a broad, impressive street, and the major artery of Lisbon. As a general rule, the farther you walk from the river, the more modern it becomes. The Botanical Gardens are nearby.
