What To Know
No restaurant, and room service is limited
The hotel’s position on one of Lisbon’s main streets makes it an excellent base from which to navigate the capital, but it’s not for those who want a quiet stay

Cool, contemporary boutique digs brimming with local character on one of Lisbon’s main thoroughfares
Artistically designed by Miguel Cancio Martins, both the interior and exterior of this lovely hotel reflect its birth in the 18th century. Original blue and white Pombaline tiles (named after the 18th-century Marques de Pombal, who was responsible for the layout of much of Lisbon) cover the public areas downstairs, while the exterior is graced by original shutters and delicate ironwork balconies. Warm tones and clean lines lend a decidedly modern look to the historic touches.
Bed and Bath
There's a stately modernism to the rooms with tufted leather wingbacks, monogrammed headboards and historic architectural details. Bathrooms are tiled in brilliant white with a splash of red poppies on the white cotton shower curtains. Fragrant Molton Brown amenities add a luxe touch.
Breakfast is served in the main reception area, with Nespresso coffee and a wide selection of teas on offer. Indulge in the typical Lisbon pasteis de Nata (custard tarts) or some excellent presunto (cured local ham). A glass of port in the evening at the warm, laid-back bar is offered to all guests. Check out the lap pool for a refreshing dip when the temperature soars.
In the Area
Being right in the heart of Lisbon puts everything within easy reach — a good thing in a city that has terrible traffic jams due to its many narrow, ancient streets. On either side of the hotel are designer shops including Burberry and Tod’s, and a short stroll will bring guests to such Lisbon highlights as the 19th-century Rossio Station — a highly ornate neo-manueline structure with horseshoe-shaped arches. Try classic Portuguese fare at the charmingly old-fashioned restaurant Cervejaria Pinóquio, which spills out onto the terrace and has an excellent choice of seafood dishes.
