The Vibe: Once abandoned, this stunning Art Nouveau building, has returned to its former glory and is a beacon of change for this area.
The Area: Almirante Reis, like many Lisbon neighbourhoods, “up and coming” – traditionally home to immigrants. Intendente Metro Station is a 2-minute walk and a tramline runs along the Avenida Almirante Reis.
The DNA: One of Lisbon’s most architecturally impressive hotels, the 1908 Lisboa Hotel is set in an Art Nouveau edifice originally built in -you guessed it – 1908 by architect Adães Bermudes as luxury apartments. It was converted into a hotel in 2017 offering 36 clean-lined rooms, a bar and the Infame Restaurant with an original and tasty menu.
Suite-Me-Up: Splash out and get the King of Dome duplex suite with its tiny round window right up under the dome giving you a bird’s eye view of the red-roofed capital. Beneath that is a luxurious bedroom with a bathroom complete with free standing tub and a separate rain shower.
