Location, location, location. We fell in love with Belem having seen all of Lisbon, this had the best light, views and old buildings. Its the complement of river views, a historic building filled with charm that is unique. The house dates from the 1830´s and has been fully modernised while keeping all the architectural features intact. We love that it is high up on the third floor like a princes tower that looks onto the river, museums and pretty houses nearby. Just in front is the Belem Library, we have dozens of nice little shops, restaurants and quirky portuguese places to visit. The congress center is down the road.
Unique benefits: Located by the river, museums, foodie places. The electric tram takes you to Chiado and cais do Sodre. The interior decoration has focused on a colourful palette, with luxurious fabrics, a nod to Portuguese culture with a bespoke 18th century tile table, custom artwork by Portuguese artists and little details to make your stay as nice as possible.
