This hotel combines Scandinavian serenity with the hectic city life of Lisbon. This 'hotel' is different from all the others, it wants to keep itself pure, and therefore, doesn't receive many people at the same time. It was born from a manor and palatial building from the 18th century that the current owners found in Campo de Santa Clara, one of the best Lisbon spots for those who love Lisbon.

Pestana Palace


The imposing and grandiose aspect of the hotel, considered one of the best in Lisbon, is what sets it apart from all others. With 5 stars, and located in a 19th-century palace in a residential area of Lisbon, the palace presents gardens with subtropical trees classified as a "National Monument".


This hotel in Lisbon is close to the city's main monuments, such as the Belém Cultural Center, the Jerónimos Monastery, and the Congress Centre. It has 194 rooms, 4 of which are royal suites. In the Palace building, we can now find the chapel, the hotel's common areas (concierge and reception, lounges, bar, and the Valle Flôr restaurant), small meeting rooms, and the 4 royal suites.

The Ivens, Autograph Collection


First of all, the presentations: Roberto Ivens and Hermenegildo Capelo were two illustrious Portuguese explorers at the end of the 19th century. And this hotel is the representation of the conclusions of both. 


This hotel is an escape from reality, an oasis, and it perfectly represents the jungle and nature, defining itself as an "arrival point" and "a departure point", as can be read on the website. The settings are breathtaking and present a mystical feeling. Each space represents a different point, but the objective is always the same: to discover a new world, in the heart of Lisbon.



Lázaro Rosa-Violán, the man who already left a footprint in Lisbon by designing the interiors of JNcQUOI Avenida, but also Massimo Dutti on Avenida da Liberdade, was the mastermind behind the project, and we love it!!! 

Bairro Alto Hotel


In the exact place where the Bairro Alto Hotel is located today stood the small Ermida do Alecrim, which disappeared with the 1755 earthquake, which almost destroyed the city,  and whose name remains on the beautiful street that connects the Hotel to the Tagus River. Here, luxury goes hand in hand with comfort and becomes a unique experience for all visitors.
