Festa de Sto Antonio

Planning to spend a few days in Lisbon and would like to be there for this festa. Thinking of booking the Altis Prime Hotel apartments on Rua Rodrigo de Fonseca which appears to be close to the Avenida da Liberdade which I believe is where the carnival parade takes place.

Has anyone stayed in these apartments ?

Is this the best area of Lisbon to stay in to visit the attractions and for night life, including the festivities of the Festa de Sto Antonio?

Any other advice or recommendations would be appreciated as this will be our first trip to Lisbon.

There is a parade on Santo António's night at Avenida da Liberdade (to which you are refering 2) and a huge popular party in Alfama wich is much more interesting and fun than the first one. Transportation in the centre will be impossible so you'll have to walk and given the distance you must choose one.

Hotels in Baixa, Sé or Castelo will be good for this last option.

It's ok for the parade. For the night is as good as any other location, you'll have to be prepared to walk and walk and walk among thousands around Alfama, Castelo, Mouraria, etc.
