the 171 rooms Transformed to Reflect
Sofitel's Art de Vivre à la Française
|Bangkok, (May 11th 2005) - The Sofitel Lisboa, located on Lisbon's
prestigious Avenida da Liberdade and well-known in the city for more than
13 years, recently underwent a transformation and will re-open its doors
on May 11th with a completely new, look and feel.
The Sofitel Lisboa will offer Sofitel's signature MyBed, a luxurious and plush bedding collection, and Roger & Gallet bath products. In addition, each guest room is equipped with voicemail, high-speed Internet access, Web TV, climate-control air conditioning and an in-room safe.
The cosmopolitan set will enjoy the hotel's trendy restaurant, Ad Lib (from the latin "Ad Libitum", meaning "ad will" but also very profoundly associated to Av. Liberdade), which offers international cuisine integrating French and Portuguese ingredients and influences. Cozy and intimate, Ad Lib is luxuriously decorated with Portuguese crystal and glass and has an atmosphere of French glamour and high fashion.
The hip Intra-Muros Bar - a historical reference to the Poiares (the ancient term for walls) of the City - is ideal for enjoying a cigar or O'Porto wine. The décor of the lounge mixes Asian and Portuguese influences, featuring an extensive collection of Asiatic paintings, sculptures and ancient vases, as well as designs from the Portuguese colonial empire and a library housing books about Portugal and famous Portuguese explorers.
Accor is the European leader and one of the world's largest groups in travel, tourism and corporate services.
