Quirky design hotel with colorful artworks and a whimsical bar on one of Lisbon's prettiest squares
Dating back to 1910, the Internacional Design Hotel underwent a head-to-toe revamp in 2009, transforming the property into a sleek 55-room retreat on one of Lisbon's prettiest squares. The carefully conceptualized guestrooms follow four themes: urban (industrial artwork and metal fixtures), tribe (animal print fabrics and earth tones), Zen (neutral hues and Asian-inspired prints) and pop (a bold mix of brightly colored walls, wacky Pop Art and ’60s-inspired furnishings). Though diminutive, all rooms are soundproof and offer delightful creature comforts including a soothing massage shower, L’Occitane bath products, a pillow menu and a Nespresso coffee machine. The breakfast room — a colorful tribute to all things kitsch and whimsical, scattered with mismatched chairs and tongue-in-cheek artworks — doubles as a hip bar and lounge area at night. On the top floor, the purple Loft room is a welcoming space to kick back or indulge in a pampering massage.
In the Area
A hub of activity since the Middle Ages, Rossio Square, with its shops, cafés and the Dona Maria II National Theater, offers the perfect starting point for exploring Lisbon. The adjacent pedestrian street, Rua Augusta, leads to Praça do Comercio, a scenic square overlooking the Tagus River. Enjoy an evening fado performance at Can the Can, a restaurant in the square where canned goods mesh surprisingly well with fresh ingredients. Neighboring ’hoods include the fashionable Chiado district, home to trendy concept stores including the recently inaugurated Chiado Factory and such restaurants as Belcanto, a posh eatery from Michelin-starred chef José Avillez.
