Light-filled and beautiful.

When everything is perfect.

Light-filled and beautiful.

John and Oko to watch over you.

Room with a view.

Baixa streets.

It’s the little things.

Home sweet home.

Hand-made blankets from Alentejo and other thoughtful design touches.

Tiles for miles.

Highs & Lows

  • Friendly welcome and local recos. The team here love to share their time and love for their city. They have an uncanny knack of making guests feel truly at home.

  • Location. Tucked away in a little residential street of Baixa. The Lisboans is smackbang in the heart of the city but perfectly quiet at the same time.

  • Thoughtful design. Hand-picked antiques, hand-woven textiles by local artisans, handmade Portuguese tiles- every little design detail has been incredibly carefully considered.

  • Breakfast delivery. The nicest surprise of all. A cute tote bag filled with fresh bread, croissants, and fresh orange juice is left on your door each morning to accompany the butter/jam/milk and cereal already in the apartment.

  • The Portuguese tiles. Need I say more.

  • Having to leave.

A 20 min. hike (get ready for some hills) from the Lisboans, Copenhagen Coffee Lab is worth the mission.  A Nordic-style cafe' in Principe Real serving excellent specialty coffee (order a flat white) and cinnamon buns.

If you don't have time to do a workshop, make sure you at least pop your head into Catia Pessoa's beautiful ceramics atelier.  A beautiful space and just up the hill from The Lisboans.

A tiny, charming tavern that is impossibly hard to get into.  Our recommendation- get there right on 6pm.  No reservations, and cash only.  The local, daily-changing menu and Lisbon wines makes the wait worth it.
