Description

A modern boutique property, centrally located with Lisbon's shops, restaurants and sights in walking distance. Memmo Principe Real is a fashionable spot, popular with locals and ideal for couples looking to explore one of the city’s most charming areas.

The Memmo Principe Real is a high-design boutique property, a sleek, white minimalist cube set into the hillside and surrounded by residential buildings, typical of Lisbon’s historic architecture. With only 41 rooms, an outdoor pool with city views and a lively restaurant and alfresco bar, it is a popular option for the local crowd and visitors alike. Being ideally located for both sightseeing and wandering, and surrounded by the antique shops and art galleries of the upmarket Principe Real district, the property makes a great option for couples.

Set in a largely residential part of the city, the hotel’s design is led by its surroundings, with limestone floors echoing the stone seen throughout the city’s ancient buildings, and sleek modern lines that draw the eye to the panoramic city views. While the main sites are within walking distance, the area itself is off the main tourist track, and provides a chance to mix with locals and wander the pretty cobbled streets and tranquil squares. The 41 rooms and suites combine contemporary and classic design elements, with rich textures and modern amenities including Bose speakers and Bang & Olufsen TVs. With many boasting panoramic views and outdoor terraces, they are a comfortable space to unwind after a busy day of exploring Lisbon’s many sights. 

The restaurant and bar reflect the cosmopolitan crowd that the neighborhood attracts, with simple, contemporary lines contrasting with rich colors, velvet banquettes and art inspired by the antique shops of the area. The restaurant offers local and international flavors taking inspiration from Portuguese heritage around the world, while the bar is a lively spot for sunset cocktails with far reaching city views.

While being well-located for sightseeing, Memmo Principe Real is also a comfortable place to relax, with an outdoor heated swimming pool and small terrace ideal for lounging and soaking in the city views. The restaurant and bars of the district, as well as nearby Bairro Alto and Chiado are just steps away.
