In a city famous for its character, As Janelas Verdes lives up to the challenge of embodying the spirit of Lisbon.
Outside, it looks bright and airy. Inside, natural light floods in. High ceilings and light colours ensure you do not feel as if you are in a four-storey city-block hotel (which in fact you are).
Rooms are comfortable, and light. Soft fabrics and curved alcoves add character that is often hard to come by in metropolitan hotels.
For a city hotel it is exceptionally peaceful. The enclosed courtyard is one of its best features – Not many city hotels can offer a beautiful outdoor space such as this – with high walls and cobble-stones provide privacy and beauty.
One of the hotel’s exterior walls is entirely covered by ivy, unusual for a city centre. Although the hotel has no restaurant, one can find many incredible places to eat in the surrounding area.
Views of the harbour from the rooftop terrace are a bonus, but this place would be great even without them. Just walk a few streets south and you come to the harbour itself.
