Sited on the edge of Lisbon's picturesque Alfama district and overlooking the River Tagus, this extraordinary boutique B&B property is one of the most charming and beguiling hotels in the city.
Combining neo-classical design elements with art nouveau and rococo flourishes, the hotel is an architectural gem. Beautifully appointed throughout with original period furniture and decorative art, the building, which dates from 1909, comprises of just six guest suites, accommodation that includes the Grande Torreão, housed in a tower and commanding stunning panoramic views of the river and the old town.
Each room is complimented by a host of modern amenities, including satellite TV, mini bar and free Wi-Fi. Some of the suites face the river.
Breakfast is taken in considerable style, served as it is in a room at the front of the hotel that's very often bathed in morning sunshine.
Palacete Chafariz D'El Rei is known for its brunch, where guests can mingle with non-residents in the splendid "Mirror Lounge", a fabulous salon designed in the Brazilian art nouveau style, the hotel's highlight interior design feature.
A balcony terrace, replete with gurgling fountains and, in summer, a blaze of purple bougainvillea, adds additional romantic appeal to this unusual and unique Lisbon hotel property.
