What do a Boutique Hotel, a Pousada, a Parador, a Riad and a Ryokan have in common?

Mar. 10 2021

Whatever your destination, one of the decisive points of every trip is the choice of accommodation. A huge responsibility that will condition the whole experience. In Portugal, and especially in Lisbon, there is an enormous variety and the differentiation between the various accommodation options is not always clear.

At Lisbon Heritage Hotels, we promote boutique hotels and hideaways, which seek to combine the distinctive features of a hotel – such as the services and type of care – with the personalization and cosiness found in smaller accommodation facilities, genuine Boutique Hotels, where we have direct contact with the city’s traditions and history.

We know that when we travel all over the world, we can get the feeling of being transported to other experiences and of getting to know the traditions of the places we visit, such as when we wake up at a Parador in our neighbouring Spain. Or we can have the feeling of “home”, even if we are physically distant from our real home, like when we stay in a Riad, in the heart of Morocco, or in a Ryokan in faraway Japan, how can we not feel at home in all these “homes”?

Just decide which view of Lisbon you want to wake up to in the morning.


Cosy and Calm

In contrast to the big hotel chains, all our hotels have a limited number of rooms, which guarantees a unique and calm environment. We know that large hotels, due to their size and large staff, can easily result in a more impersonal environment, contrary to the experience we like our guests to feel when they visit us. At Lisbon Heritage Hotels, you can choose between boutique hotels in some of Lisbon’s historical and emblematic buildings, such as the Heritage Avenida Liberdade, Hotel Lisboa Plaza, or Hotel Britania, a true jewel of the 1940s Art Deco Style.

Or stay overnight at Solar do Castelo, in a wing of São Jorge Castle having the unique experience of living at least one night in one of the most famous castles in Portugal.

If you prefer an 18th-century palace with the charisma of a true aristocratic house, As Janelas Verdes is at your service. But beware, the number of rooms is extremely limited, so be sure to plan your visit in advance.

Architectural and cultural preservation is part of the essence of our accommodations and each one tells its own story. The decoration embodies the completely distinct personality of each of them and guarantees much more than comfort, it also guarantees cosiness. The ideal mix for those who don’t give anything up because of size.


A Pousada (inn) in the centre of Lisbon with the service of an exclusive hotel

We know that one of the attractions of staying in a hotel is the possibility of benefitting from a wide range of extra services that we don’t usually have at home.

The services available at Lisbon Heritage Hotels vary according to each hotel, but we also offer our guests the services generally available in a larger hotel, with the advantage of enjoying them in a cosy environment, in the historic centre of Lisbon.
