To reach the Workshop from ASLisboa, we suggest to take the Green line at the Alameda station (cross the street from the Hotel), heading to Baixa-Chiado station. Once there, make sure you take the Chiado (Largo do Chiado) way out, enjoy a coffee at Café Brasileira, and then walk to Rua da Academia das Ciências, as shown here:

Besides, several other hotels, hostels and residences are located in the surrounding area of the Academy of Sciences and towards the historic centre that lies on the banks of the Tagus river.

Monte Belverde Hotel (✭✭✭ )
Located close to the Santa Catarina view point (Chiado area), 10 min walking distance (mostly uphill) to the Academy.

Hotel Botanico (✭✭✭ )
Located close to Principe Real Garden, 8 min walking distance (mostly downhill) to the Academy.
