OVERVIEW

In the atmospheric Alfama district, hidden from sight but with mesmerising views, this chic hotel has been carefully created from historic 19th-century buildings. With airy spaces, designer furnishings and neat white-on-white bedrooms, the atmosphere is relaxed, especially around the tiered terrace and pool. The wine bar offers simple Portuguese tapas, too.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Tucked away at the end of one of the labyrinthian streets of the city's historic Alfama district, the hotel benefits from its hard-to-find location; there are no passers-by, yet the views over the tightly-packed roofs of its neighbours, and down to the Tagus River, are mesmerising. The No 28 tram route through the city is a couple of minutes' walk away. The city's Romanesque cathedral is within stepping distance and the shops of downtown Baixa are just a little further, while the splendid Moorish Castelo de São Jorge is a steepish walk uphill.

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 25-minute taxi ride from the airport. Public parking available. Book flights to Lisbon.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

From its modest-looking, white-washed exterior the hotel opens up into unexpectedly large and airy interiors that blend original features of vaulted ceilings and brick walls with a cool style of bleached-wood floors, coffee and white colours, leather chairs and large plate-glass windows. Shelves of books, big designer lights and modern art act as decoration.

THE FACILITIES

The lounge-dining room-bar spread over two floors and a brick-vaulted library (the former bakery oven), plus a large outdoor terrace, mean plenty of space to relax. Shelves of books (many on Lisbon) plus a help-yourself fridge with water, juices and yoghurt keep you occupied if staying in, or staff can organise activities from fado experiences to more offbeat city tours as well as a free walking tour. Winters mean a fire pit on the terrace.

BED AND BATH

Bedrooms are on the small side (and standard rooms look out onto the roof parapet) but are light-coloured and minimally furnished - wood floors, white walls, wood-block bedside tables, often hooks and hangers instead of wardrobes - to make the most of the space. The bedhead cleverly doubles as a shelf, while some of the wet-room bathrooms have a glass wall.

Room types: Patio Room, Mansard Room, Alfama Room, Terrace Room

Key amenities: ensuite bath or shower, hairdryer, TV, free Wi-Fi

FOOD AND DRINK

In the evening, a short menu of Portuguese tapas dishes such as shrimp with lime and ginger, a fillet steak sandwich and plates of local hams and cheeses are served alongside a handsome selection of Portuguese wines and ports. Breakfast is a generous selection of bread, pastries, prepared fruits and savouries with cooked dishes to order.

The restaurant: pastries, cooked breakfasts, Portuguese tapas, wine, port. Open every day.
