The pistachio green building set in one of Lisbon’s long streets perfectly preserves the atmosphere of the city’s diversity. The building at 223 Rua da Junqueira has been transformed into a fresh architecture after a less attractive building, in which guests can now enjoy a mixture of history with contemporary modern design. If you turn into the alley towards the river, you will notice an atypical drawing on the side façade, created by Luís Rebelo de Andrade, to discourage people from leaving their marks on the walls. In the hallway with a spiral staircase leading guests to the rooms, you will find a slightly Baroque style with remnants of history, which has been restored to a more modern form. „The arches, the carved plasterwork ceilings, the skylight and the frescoes were restored and live harmoniously with the contemporary language punctuating the rest of the building.“ The separate rooms have a minimalist design with pure white, a typical terrace and views of the Lisbon scenery.
