The Vintage Lisbon
Lisbon’s a pretty cool city, so it follows that you should book a room somewhere suitably sassy. This fashionable new abode exudes mid-century class; its 56 bedrooms are swathed in tactile fabrics and modern art, each with a vintage drinks trolley to mix your own perfect serves. Venture underground to the spa, where you can have a dip in the pool, a steam in the hammam, a Vichy shower, or a treatment with products by La Sultane de Saba and Claus Porto. Dine on menus constructed by Chef João Silva, drink in the lobby bar, or on the rooftop. The Vintage is ideal for a sophisticated getaway.

Guests can make use of a first-floor terrace, a film-room snug, a mini gym, a treatment room where you can book massages and Sítio Valverde, the restaurant by chef Carla Sousa. Outside, you can hang out on the Pateo (where you’ll find a heated marble outdoor pool) and at a lushly planted courtyard bar.
