Memmo Príncipe Real
Perched in dramatic fashion on a hillside in Lisbon’s Príncipe Real district, the Memmo Príncipe Real offers sweeping panoramic views. The hotel itself is an architectural gem of clean, modernist lines, plate-glass windows and sharp corners and is a striking sight after arriving through a small tunnel from the street. To the front there is a large terrace bar and swimming pool positioned to make the most of the precipitous views. Inside, the lobby and ground floor restaurant also make the most of the vista with floor-to-ceiling windows and a range of comfortable seating.
Each room is elegantly refined and furnished with great attention to detail. Wooden floors are covered with thick rugs, the linen bedding is topped with opulent faux fur throws, and the sleek, design-style furniture is offset by top-of-the-range products including Bang & Olufsen televisions and Hermès toiletries. On arrival you’ll even find the ingredients to mix your own signature cocktail.
The hotel also offers plenty of substance to back up its finely crafted style. The staff here will go out of their way to make you feel welcome and there is a complimentary walking tour each evening.
