Step from the busy Avenida de Liberdade, Lisbon’s main boulevard, into a restored six-storey townhouse with original Pombaline tiles and the building’s 18th-century herbalist counter at the entrance; inside you’ll find a stylishly decorated bar and lounge where you can take your complimentary glass of port.
Fuel up with local cold meats and cheeses, several types of bread and freshly squeezed orange juice; walk to museums, shops, many restaurants, galleries and churches. Staying at the hotel gives you free admission to the National Museum of Ancient Art and the National Museum of Contemporary Art. Rossio station is a five-minute walk; from here you can visit Sintra’s pastel villas and palaces in under an hour.
Dip into the small pool, choose a book from the library or wear yourselves out in the gym. Bedrooms are calming and contemporary and you’ll find a free bottle of wine waiting for you.
