OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

You're in the west of the city, in the Lapa district, a brisk 20-minute walk from the Praça do Comercio, the city's main riverfront square. Although not central, it's in a quiet residential street in an area of embassies and consulates, with views over the Tagus River and a five-minute walk from the nearest station which connects to the city's Metro service. Portugal's national gallery, Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, is next door, with European as well as Portuguese art, while World Heritage Site Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (a monastery built to honour explorer Vasco da Gama) is in nearby Belém.

By plane: flights to Lisbon take around 2 hours 50 mins from London and Manchester and 2 hours 30 mins from Bristol. The hotel is a 20-minute taxi ride from the airport. Private parking costs €15 per day. Book flights to Lisbon.

FOOD AND DRINK

It's breakfast only, but what a joy! Served in the pretty ivy-clad, walled courtyard when it's warm - and as it's sheltered, that's most of the time - it's a tempting affair including assorted bread and local pastries, fresh fruit salad, freshly squeezed juice, cheeses, yoghurts and honey. There's pretty glasses and proper napkins, too.

Courtyard restaurant: pastries, fresh fruit, cheeses and yogurts. Open daily for breakfast.
