We rounded off a week in Sintra and Mafra with one night at As Janelas Verdes in Lisbon and wished we could have stayed for longer. The hotel was excellent in all respects - attractive public areas and rooms; honesty bar arrangements for guests in the lounge, garden and terrace; very helpful and informative staff; efficient but unobtrusive airconditioning - all in a charming historic building. Our breakfast in the garden was also rather too short, as we had to get to the airport for our flight home, but of high quality and in delightful surroundings.
The area around the hotel is off the main tourist trail but easily accessible on a quiet side street away from main traffic routes, around a 10 - 12 euro taxi ride from the airport, near to tram routes into the centre and out to Belem, plus it is very near the waterfront. Allow around 25-30 minutes to walk to the big square at Praca do Commercio. There are several restaurants nearby, one of which we enjoyed a fabolous meal at - Frade dos Mares - I recommend that just as highly as As Jarnelas Verdes, a great one night combination for Lisbon and a credit to Portugese hospitality.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- With its small garden and the top floor library overlooking the river, this 18th-century mansion transmits a romantic and welcoming feeling. The neighborhood of Lapa retains much of its traditional character and is not so crowded and touristic as other adjacent quarters like Bairro Alto and Chiado. ... more less
