Heritage Collection – Boutique Hotels, just because

Sep. 04 2020

The Heritage Hotels Collection alone has many good reasons for you to visit and make your stay in Lisbon even more enjoyable. Each of its five Boutique Hotels has a unique personality and provides a distinct experience, whether it’s for a short break, a romantic weekend for two or a family holiday. With the seal of the “collection”, they share the highest standards in service excellence, comfort, include breakfast to delight all guests, the comfort of carefully selected mattresses and pillows, immaculate cleanliness and attention to detail, which underpin our name, and, of course, the decoration itself, whether modern or period in style, or simply like your holiday home.

We firmly believe that serving as we do is the way to collect, besides hotels, also the best feedback and reviews that motivate us and make us want to continue working more and better, to meet expectations.

Enjoy our comfortable rooms and privatebathrooms, some with details that make them unique. If you come with family or friends, you will want to know the spaces we have to offer: totally private and independent rooms, but with exclusive communication.

There is also another feature you may give in to when choosing a good hotel in Lisbon, with an amazing quality/price ratio: the silence. Prepare yourself to relax, at the end of a day well spent in the Portuguese capital, in the deepest peace. The peaceful environment, the acoustic insulation that stifles all the sounds of the big city, and the invitation to slow down the frantic pace of everyday life, ensure that you get a good, quiet sleep, without having to escape from the city centre. If you choose a privileged view of the Tagus river, you will most probably realize that, on your holidays, the Hotel was not just the place where you slept. It was the place where you lingered during your stay.

Once you get to know us, staying at a Heritage may well be the main reason for your trip to Lisbon.

Distance to the airport

What if landing at Lisbon airport actually meant being a few minutes from the comfort of your Hotel room?
One of the toughest moments of a trip is to arrive tired, wait for your luggage and then still have a long journey ahead until you reach the Hotel. In big European cities, staying near the airport means giving up a well-located hotel, in the city centre and close to the main attractions. Sacrificing the daily comfort of being in the place of excellence for the convenience of the first hours is even pointless. However, when you stay at one of our boutique hotels, you don’t have to choose.
When you land, we will be waiting for you in the city centre, on Lisbon’s main avenue, at the top of the castle that keeps watch over the city or in the palace overlooking the Tagus river. We know you will be arriving soon.
We’re about 10 km from the airport.
