The Pestana Palace Hotel & National Monument is a 5-star hotel in a 19th century palace and by far my favorite hotel in Lisbon – located near some of the most important monuments of the city, such as Centro Cultural de Belém, Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and Centro de Congressos (Congress Centre).
The hotel has 193 rooms, 4 of these being royal suites. In the present day, in the Palace building we can find the chapel and the hotel’s service areas (porter and reception, salons, bar and the Valle Flôr restaurant), small meeting rooms and the 4 royal suites.
All salons are profusely decorated, with French-inspired details. The private quarters of the Marquises have been turned into beautiful and spacious suites. Here, likewise, works of art decorate the walls, complemented by elegant furniture from antique shops and by luxury sofas.The view to the Tagus river or to the vast gardens of the Palace can be enjoyed from all royal suites.
Staying at this palace surely was a privilege, but I think sometimes it’s quite alright to spoil yourself a little. Even if you don’t wanna spend that much money on your accomodation, you should stop by for a visit and explore this beautiful residential area.
