Rooms

There are only 14 rooms, this is not a big hotel. Some are in the old house, others hide behind a more contemporary façade which overlooks the courtyard. All are air conditioned, all come with satellite TV.

Those in the old house have high ceilings, those in the eaves have the odd exposed beam. You get trim rugs, crisp linen, pretty fabrics and all are spotless. Superior rooms are slightly bigger than standard rooms, but some standard rooms have French windows that open onto tiny balconies and overlook the courtyard. We loved the complimentary decanter of port in our room but it was a shame there's no minibar. However, you can get drinks from the honesty bar in the guest lounge downstairs.

The overall style is uncluttered, rooms are airy, there are good mirrors, cast-iron beds and plenty of storage. Marblebathrooms are compact but have everything you’ll need, and all come with tubs, showers, towelling bathrobes and Molton Brown toiletries.

Activities

You're next door to the Castelo sao Jorge so take a stroll around the grounds in the early morning (and beat the crowds) or take in a stunning sunset. It closes at 9.30pm

 

Take a trip on the historic tram 28 all around the old part of the city, Alfama; there are wonderful views and it's a good way to get your bearings

Alfama is considered Lisbon’s prettiest district, perhaps because it’s one of the few sections that survived the 1755 earthquake, which clings to the hill between the castle and river below. Mazy alleyways and stone stairs lead you down to the water. The cathedral is here too

 

The Calouste Gulbenkian Museum has artefacts gathered by wealthy oil magnate Calouste Gulbenkian over 40 years. There are gold Egyptian masks from 2700BC, Ancient Greek sculptures and rare porcelain from China. Closed Mondays

Discover the influence of colonialism in multi-culturalMartim Moniz. Its Fusion Market sells produce from all over the world, and stalls sit alongside street performers

Shop in the heart of the city or in the trendy, more bohemian quarter of Barrio Alto, then relax at any one of its cool cafes and bars or catch a live fado performance - the music of Portugal
