The welcome from Juan and Luis and the information they provided made our stay at Casa Amora and our first visit to Lisbon quite special. Juan sat with us and went over the map, told us where to visit and good places to eat and offered to help us any time, even after we had left Lisbon.
The breakfasts were delicious with something different every day; more Portuguese than Americana. Being Christmas, there were some festive foods on offer, such as Bolo Rei. It is a small hotel and quite intimate and the breakfast area has inside seating and a courtyard. We stayed in a small studio with kitchenette, across the lane from the main building. The bathroom was pretty compact but had everything you need, except a bath. But there are other rooms with baths. Luis organised an evening at a Fado for us which was very enjoyable.
The location is not too touristy but has everything you need. The viaduct museum opposite is worth a visit. It is not too far to Estrela Cathedral and Tram 28 which will take you to central Lisbon.
We would definitely go back to Casa Amora and will recommend it to others. Luis plans to expand and with their attention to customer service they should do very well.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Amora is a typical building of Lisbon’s early twentieth century petite bourgeoisie, renovated in 2012, with a small outdoor patio for rest or meals and 5 bedrooms (all with bathroom). Each room pays homage to one of the great figures of Portuguese art (painting, music, literature, film) of the last century. The process of renewal and adaptation carefully kept all the decorative elements existing in the rooms (plaster) and exterior (tiles, balcony), introducing a color palette that contributes to a peaceful and relaxing environment. Casa Amora is located in one of the nicest and most central districts of Lisbon, Praça das Amoreiras. In this neighborhood, where the 18th century Aqueduct (that survived the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755) reaches and end, Casa Amora is neighbor to Water Museum (Museu da Mae de Agua) and the Vieira da Silva / Arpad Szenes museum. Residents and visitors have easy and direct access to the neighborhoods of antique shops (Rua de Sao Bento and Rua da Escola Politecnica), historic districts (Bairro Alto and Chiado), Avenida da Liberdade and its fashion shops as well as the shopping center Amoreiras, all at walking distance. ... more less
