Built in 1892, Lisbon's first luxury hotel combines regal elegance with modern comfort. French architect Lucian Donnat breathed new life into the hotel in the 1990s when refitting it to its original romantic Belle Époque style. Classically furnished rooms are completely soundproof, and bathrooms are lined in the finest Portuguese marble. Sumptuously furnished suites, some with Jacuzzis, are decorated in Louis XV, Louis XVI, D. Maria, D. José, and Empire styles. The hotel
still costs a pretty penny and mainly attracts older travelers.
