A uniquely cool capital, Lisbon’s recent riverside development sits alongside undiminished traditions putting this European capital at the top of traveller’s wishlists. It glows with a surreal light that is diffused and reflected around its seven hills by the Tagus river and the city’s limestone-tiled streets. It is a beguiling blend of sun-bleached, time-worn charm and a bursting, contemporary cultural scene. Magnificent monasteries and Moorish castles sit alongside modern museums and art galleries, whilst a lively shopping scene and a vibrant nightlife complete the urban tableau. All this is veined with tramways, cobbled lanes and tree-lined streets, making for a truly captivating stay.
Hotel 1908 sits within walking distance of all this in the corner of the Almirante Reis Avenue (the address of Cervejaria Ramiro) and Intendente Square (home of hip-casual hang-out Casa Independente) in downtown Lisbon. This area has gone through the most notable transformation in recent years and the hotel seamlessly meshes old and new. Having been only recently renovated, original Art Nouveau features are offset by chic modern amenities and carefully chosen vintage-inspired items throughout the spacious bedrooms. Boasting an ever-evolving art gallery of up-and-coming artists, Hotel 1908 also offers a relaxed bar to enjoy a post-sightseeing cocktail and Infame Restaurant for Chef Nuno Bandeira de Lima’s Portuguese-fusion cuisine.
How to Get There
This was my first visit to Lisbon. I chose 1908 Lisboa purely by instinct and a hunch. My instinct was proven correct by the experience I had. The location in Old Town is perfect for a person that wants to get more of the local flavor of the city. Rooms are not expansive, but they are very clean, well appointed and offer comfortable beds. The staff are outstanding in their hospitality and attention to guest needs. This MY place to stay henceforth!
The best hotel we stayed at during our trip to Portugal. Beautiful and a cool esthetic throughout the whole hotel. Caterina checked us in and was so helpful!! She and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make sure you had everything you needed - how to get around, dinner reservations, and beyond! And the breakfast that we had included/added for our reservation was so wonderful and fresh!! Far beyond what we had expected. Highly recommend.
I love this hotel! It's so beautiful with all the details. Contemporary, stylish and yet with a great history. Breakfast is super good: fruits, fresh pastries and bread, juices, coffee, cheeses. High quality selection made with taste. My room was very good too. Bathroom is spacious and perfect. Thank you for the kind staff too. Coming back soon!
