As Janelas Verdes
Romance on the banks of the Tagus
A Small Boutique Hotel in the historic centre of Lisbon
Part of an 18th century townhouse – next to the National Ancient Art Museum – this romantic boutique hotel encapsulates the tradition and serenity of the gestures exchanged between ladies and gentlemen.
Objects d’art, books and family photos set the scene for a romantic novel. In actual fact, this house is believed to have been the inspiration for the famous «Ramalhete» from the literary work «Os Maias» written by Eça de Queiróz who is said to have lived there.
Reading, talking, looking at the blue line of the Tagus from the library terrace. Taking tea in the interior garden where the cast iron spiral staircase stands out, eaten up by the age-old climbing plant. The choice is yours. As in a friend’s home, all the areas of As Janelas Verdes are exclusive for our guests.
In spring the singing of the birds sways the emotions whilst you have breakfast in the garden whenever you like. Inside the house, the water from the fountain which decorates the central shaft rises gently. The sun – uninvited – enters the rooms decorated in soft tones of coral and woo. Alluring!
The bluer than blue horizon of the Tagus seen from As Janelas Verdes.

“The Lisbon neighbourhood of Lapa retains much of its traditional charm, making it feel more like a quiet village than part of Portugal’s sprawling capital. Peppered with cafés and small shops, it’s far enough from the centre to escape the noise and near enough to be able to walk there.” – Monocle, May 2011
