Star rating:
4 star hotel

4

A smart and modern design hotel in Lisbon’s historic Belem district.

Lisbon hasn’t been quick to jump on the design bandwagon, so this is one of a rare breed to be found in the capital. Everything about the place is slick, minimalist and slightly arrogant, which you’ll either love or hate.

Location

In the historic Belem district, the hotel is right next to the iconic Jeronimos cloisters and monastery, which is a must-see for all tourists. The location is very peaceful and quiet with a few more historic sights and parks nearby, plus the river is only a short stroll away. However you are a 10-minute tram, bus or taxi-ride away from the city centre, which I found to be mildly inconvenient.

Bedrooms

The minimalist theme is continued in the rooms. I liked the clean and simple feel that was given by the use of soft cream tones and the glass and marble bathroom. Some of the rooms have serene, palm tree-lined views onto the neighbouring cloisters.

Public areas

Again, a simple and modern vibe is found in the hotel’s communal areas with the exclusive use of brown, red and cream tones throughout.

Eating and drinking

The well-lit, red-walled bar and black sofas disconcertingly look like something from a 70s' sci-fi movie. However, surprisingly, it serves rare and excellent Portuguese wines. There’s also an excellent continental breakfast (using exclusively organic produce) served in the outdoor patio area.

Service

Really good. All the staff seemed to have each guest's name memorised, which was impressive.

Who stays there

Hip, urban weekenders, looking for something a bit different.

Price advice

Weekday rates are often better value than the weekend.
