Highs & Lows

  • If you’re looking for a bit of decadence in the middle of Lisbon, look no further. This is the only hotel for miles that’s a little boujee and has a spa.

  • In every room there’s a stocked mini bar with a bottle of delicious local wine and craft beer and everything is yours for free.

  • The location couldn’t be better. There are even two entrances; one of which is more incognito onto a small side street in case the paparazzi are on your trail—which in my case they certainly were not.

  • I can’t be entirely sure without staying at them all, but this just might be the cleanest, shiniest hotel in Lisbon.

  • The design was incredibly thought out, but I wouldn’t mind a bit more character in the rooms to make them feel more personal.

  • I love a good rooftop restaurant, and while the food here was certainly good, the atmosphere was more on the sterile side and could benefit from some new unexpected elements.

I’ve now eaten at three of Portugal’s most well-known chef’s restaurants and am never disappointed.

You don’t go here because the infamous aged cherry liquor actually tastes good, you go here for the experience: being handed a shot from one of the two bartenders who look like they’ve been doing this for 50 years. Plus, if you need to buy some street weed, apparently, this is the spot to do it.
