Experience first-hand the debut property of AlmaLusa Hotels, a new 28-room hotel set in a historic building right in the heart of Lisbon, in a fantastic competition exclusive to readers of the Herts Advertiser.
AlmaLusa Baixa/Chiado is the brainchild of hotel veteran, Miguel Simões de Almeida, and offers accessibly-priced luxury that retains the elements that really matter for guests – stylish décor, character, luxe amenities and truly stellar personalised service.
Set on the historic Praça do Município, where Lisbon’s royal palace once stood and the plans for Portugal’s maritime exploration were born in the 15th century, the AlmaLusa Baixa/Chiado is made for visitors who want to get under the city’s skin.
It occupies a renovated 18th-century building where weapons and cannons destined for Portuguese explorers’ ships were constructed and stored.
From the beds and towels to the in-room coffee right down to the Castebel products, almost everything at the hotel is sourced from the finest Portuguese producers.
The AlmaLusa Baixa/Chiado’s 28 chic rooms are all individually designed and come fully equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi, full HD 43ins LED smart TV, REVO Supersignal radios and powerful showers.
Enhancing the Baixa and Chiado neighborhoods’ already thriving dining scenes is the relaxed 60-cover Delfina restaurant. The menu celebrates Portuguese cuisine, with chefs using fresh, seasonal ingredients from the Mediterranean larder to craft moreish dishes, such as bacalhau à bras (a delicious concoction of scrambled egg, salt cod strips, onion and crispy fries). The alfresco dining area is an ideal spot for sipping fabulous local wines beneath the sun.
