This boutique sleep, tucked away in the quiet, cobblestoned hills of Alfama, feels like a discovery—that’s because it is. Behind its whitewashed, 19th-century façade lies one of the city’s most attractive stays: think muted taupe and gray palettes in all 42 streamlined rooms, exposed brick walls, and designer chairs—a definite departure from the neighborhood’s Moorish lean. By day, it’s a casual affair, where distinctly Portuguese breakfasts consist of traditional pastries and house-made cakes and guests, more often than not, are found browsing the living room library. By night, the mood picks up at the sleek rooftop lounge, where the city’s style set gather around a red-tiled lap pool (in the summer) or fire pit (during the winter) to clink glasses and witness spectacular sunsets over the neighborhood’s rusty rooftops and Tagus River.
In the Area
Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest district, is home to a handful of the city’s most notable attractions including São Jorge Castle and the twin-towered 12th-century cathedral, just down the road. The hotel is also within walking distance of Conserveira de Lisboa, an ever-crowded (but worth the hassle) culinary specialty store where you can buy retro-packed tins and other delectable finds. For those looking to strike out a bit further, the shopping district of Chiado is about a 20-minute walk from Memmo, home to landmark cafés like Royale and shops including House of Madeira. (Remember to pack comfortable walking shoes.) Day trippers: an hour’s drive outside Lisbon, you’ll find the fairytale-like Pena National Palace, the former summer residence of the royal family now open for tours.
How to Get There
This is a very pretty small hotel in a perfect Alfama location. I could walk to many attractions and my room had a view of the water and docks.
Staff was great, especially the dining room staff Anadria. She was super nice and helpful as were all the others.
I spent a lovely afternoon here last week. Everything was fantastic and Luis, the assistant manager, was particularly friendly and helpful. Great views, great service- I can’t wait to go back with friends.
we had a terrace room, which was amazing, 2 sets of patio doors and table onto the terrace. amazing views! although right next to where the outdoor bar area was, there was no noise.
we slept very well, the bed is comfy, and the shower is powerful too.
the staff were friendly and helpful.
they will come over to your table at the terrace are for table service even just for cocktails.
the cocktail menu is good, and well made drinks too! great barstaff.
breakfast buffet is ideal, and can order omelette, eggs, pancakes etc as well, and cappuccino is also included, there is a range of tea too. with a fridge full of juice, water, milk, yogurts to help yourselves.
all the staff were great. check out was easy, and they ordered a taxi to the airport for us too, with no hesitation.
room was clean, and they have a relaxed vibe throughout the hotel, I think breakfast was served until 11am!
