Beautifully renovated, this hotel lives and breathes history - 19th century tiles decorating the walls of our room, antique furniture and original wooden floors made us feel like we were taken back to the times one only reads in books and sees in the movies. Yet all the bathroom fixtures were modern, air conditioner was heating the room well and everything ensured that the history didn't stand in the way of comfort.
The large and beautiful common area consisting of three rooms with a fireplace and comfortable soft sofas and armchairs was a great place to relax with a cocktail in a company of friends.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help us with everything we needed. I lost my mobile phone in a taxi and one of them even went to the house of the person who found it and by the time we were back from the diner the phone was waiting for me at the reception desk!
The location is also very convenient. It is a short bus ride (the bus stop is just across the street from the hotel door) from the noisy and overcrowded historical center, yet close to the popular night club area Docas and halfway to Belem with its beautiful monastery and the popular Pastéis de Belém café with the best pastéis (famous Portugese dessert) in Lisbon.
Overall, the house, the design, the people and the atmosphere did not feel like we were in a hotel at all… it was more like we were living in a large house and we felt like we could live there for a very long time. The place is not cheap, but it is absolutely worth it! We will definitely come back and recommend it to our friends.
