“An impressive Pousada boasting a fabulous central location. Elegant contemporary rooms feature chandeliers, dark polished parquet flooring and crisp white linens. Dine on excellent cuisine in the atmospheric restaurant complete with vaulted ceiling. A superb base for city exploring.”

Hotel Overview

“Lisbon’s former Ministry of Internal Affairs was restored and opened as an elegant pousada in 2015. Occupying the North West corner of the magnificent neo-classical Praca Commercial and overlooking the mighty Tagus river estuary, you could not pick a more grandiose or exhilarating spot to stay in Lisbon. Fine antiques, prints and artefacts lent by the Musee National (including two marvellous 16th century sedan chairs) furnish the lobby and reception areas. A baronial stairway and wide light filled corridors lead to the bedrooms which are fuss-free, modern and sleek with bare wooden floors and restful colours. The in-room bathrooms are neatly designed behind frosted glass - and there are loads of lovely crisp white Portuguese linens of course. RIB, the hotel restaurant and wine bar, is a trendy and cosmopolitan hangout but outside on the square you will find numerous tempting places to eat and drink as well. This is the perfect base for a minibreak. Walk the city from here – or take a tram. You will be entranced! Great service too. Highly recommended.”

Pousada de LIsboa

"On Lisbon’s magnificent Praҁa do Comércio, this Pousada ticks all the boxes, weaving luxury with cultural heritage, art and history with modern comforts, impressive views with an impeccable location. Food, reflecting the far-flung influences of Portugal’s Golden Age of Discovery, is served under vaulted ceilings."

A capital idea on the banks of the Tagus

"Inside, it reeks of gluttonous celebration: the ghosts of parliaments past linger in every beautiful long hallway and on every lavish staircase... Stepping inside feels like walking into a living museum, with restored historical artefacts littered across the reception rooms."

Pousada de LIsboa

"The Lisboeta restaurant, helmed by rising-star chef, Tiago Bonito, specializes in traditional local fare served under an enormous vaulted dome."

Pousada de Lisboa

"The 18th-century Pousada's rooms are gloriously grand — high ceilings, wood panelling and parquet floors, the crispest white linen and a muted palette of greys and greens — as well as seriously soundproofed. Marble-clad bathrooms have super-sized rain showers."
