Travelled a lot, been in so many places - but the Monte Belvedere tops them all.
The neighbourhood is in the very heart of the city with the Camoes square in 500 metres distance.
The place is a recently renovated old city house with charming, clean, warm rooms in a mix of art deco/modern styling.
The breakfast buffet was small but included EXACTLY what one needs to start the day - all fresh, local cousine...
The rooftop has the best view especially looking to the south direction which means: sun all day!
But just next to the building you have the miradouro Santa Catarina: one of the city's meeting points for chilling and enjoying the view.
But what was the absolute number one is the Girls and Boys working there,who take such amazing care of someone and make you feel like really home!
I had to hug them when I left!

Near Monte Belvedere by Shiadu you will find the Northwind Statue [Estatua do Adamastor] (fictional character created by Luis de Camoes, in his master works The Lusiadas). The higher part of Santa Catarina is one of the most beautiful places of Lisbon and only two steps away from the city buzz. With views over the river Tagus it is said that since the 17th Century this plateau, once known as Monte do Pico or Monte Belvedere, is famous because of its lookout point. According to legend throughout the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, from here one could see the moving ships: this is why still today there is a proverbial saying that is: “Ver navios no Alto de Santa Catarina” [“Watching the ships from the top of Santa Catarina”). Follow your instinct and we will be waiting…. ... more less
