The opening of The Emerald House is a monumental occasion as it marks the first Curio Collection by Hilton property in Lisbon.

Located in a restored building in a prime position, just moments from the Portuguese capital’s vibrant centre, the 67-room property is nestled among the historic palaces and charming churches, with rooms boasting breath-taking views of the River Tagus and the city itself.

Art and antiques from the local area along with items that belonged to the previous residents of the building, such as an antique bathtub, tiles and a sink have been kept and used as unique pieces of decoration. All of which underpins a modern and elegant décor, creating a distinctive ambience perfect for those looking to discover authentic Lisbon.

The location of The Emerald House Lisbon is ideal for guests wishing to explore the local area, right next to the National Museum of Ancient Art, guests can learn about the cultural history that surrounds them.
