Hotel Overview

“Although in the central Praça do Munícípio with the river five minutes’ walk and surrounded by the busy Baixa and Chiado districts, this hotel is both discreet and quiet. The elegant 18th-century building combines original features of flagstone floors, stone pillars and open rafters in the ground-floor areas with sleekly modern bedrooms. Softly carpeted, with white walls and glossily black or mirrored furniture, plus feature walls and elegant sofas to add interest, they're understatedly luxurious. Bathrooms are bold in black and white. Most of the hotel's furnishings are from Portuguese designers.
There's a chic dining room though it’s more fun to eat on the pavement terrace. The all-day menu offers a wide but simple choice from seafood tapas to grilled meats. Leave room for the chocolate cake which is sinfully good. There are no views to speak of, but you choose this hotel for its quiet luxury and the friendly but professional service.”

Other Reviews

Almalusa Baixa/Chiado

"Tucked away in the corner of one of Lisbon’s most attractive squares, this new boutique hotel is housed in an 18th-century building on the site of the city’s old arsenal."

Originally published by The Telegraph (view article)

AlmaLusa Baixa/Chiado

"The building itself used to be the Portuguese capital’s arsenal and in the 28 sexy rooms you’ll spot original painted tiles and dark Brazilian wooden beams as well as big beds and wooden shutters which keep cool air coming in, but noise out."
