Hotel Britânia

Rua Rodrigues Sampaio 17, Lisbon, Lisbon, 1150-278, Portugal

Part of the Heritage Lisbon suite of boutique hotels housed in notable historic buildings, the art-deco touches throughout Hotel Britânia are the key selling point—from the original marble panels in the baths to the "porthole" windows in the facade, the columns and candelabra in the lobby, and the murals in the bar. The Britânia is in one of the few 1940s buildings near Avenida da Liberdade to have survived progress unscathed. The onetime town house was the work of architect Cassiano Branco, and it originally housed studio apartments, hence the larger-than-usual rooms. Staff members are welcoming and friendly, and complimentary afternoon teas are a real treat after a day on the sightseeing trail.
