I stayed at Casa Amora recently and just wanted to share my feedback on an outstanding stay. In fact, I don't often submit reviews because I'd expect a certain level of service depending on how much I pay for accommodation. However, on this occasion it's totally warranted.
Casa Amora is a beautiful boutique guesthouse located in a great spot in central Lisbon, on the edge of a pretty little park. The main house is beautifully presented and the welcome we received, plus the hospitality throughout were exceptional. We were met on arrival by the lovely Juan, whose smile and attentiveness made us feel very welcome.
The kitchen, lounge and dining area (set in a beautiful courtyard) manage to be both rustic and authentic in feel but with all the flare you'd expect from high-end accommodation (Smeg fridge, Nespresso machine etc).
I stayed with two friends (a couple) in one of the apartments on the other side of the beautiful courtyard. The apartment was a generous size and decorated to an exceptionally high standard. My roommates shared a lovely room with a big bed and en suite on the mezzanine one level above the lounge. I stayed on the generously sized sofa bed which could easily pass for a standard double bed due to it's size and comfort. I slept flawlessly both nights. There was a smaller though perfectly adequate bathroom on the ground floor which I had sole use of and even a small kitchen, including a fridge stocked with chilled drinking water waiting for us on arrival.
The entire place was spotlessly clean on arrival and cleaned daily thereafter.
Finally, breakfast was simply superb. Freshly baked croissants and Portuguese cakes and pastries, tasty fresh coffee, local meats and cheeses, fresh fruit and juice and optional egg dishes and even special Portuguese treats (try the rice pudding with cinnamon - devine!)
I will upload some pictures, but you have to be there to experience it.
I have already been raving about Casa Amora to all my friends and will DEFINITELY stay here again on my next trip to Lisbon.
Many thanks to Juan and Luis - a lesson in textbook hospitality.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Amora is a typical building of Lisbon’s early twentieth century petite bourgeoisie, renovated in 2012, with a small outdoor patio for rest or meals and 5 bedrooms (all with bathroom). Each room pays homage to one of the great figures of Portuguese art (painting, music, literature, film) of the last century. The process of renewal and adaptation carefully kept all the decorative elements existing in the rooms (plaster) and exterior (tiles, balcony), introducing a color palette that contributes to a peaceful and relaxing environment. Casa Amora is located in one of the nicest and most central districts of Lisbon, Praça das Amoreiras. In this neighborhood, where the 18th century Aqueduct (that survived the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755) reaches and end, Casa Amora is neighbor to Water Museum (Museu da Mae de Agua) and the Vieira da Silva / Arpad Szenes museum. Residents and visitors have easy and direct access to the neighborhoods of antique shops (Rua de Sao Bento and Rua da Escola Politecnica), historic districts (Bairro Alto and Chiado), Avenida da Liberdade and its fashion shops as well as the shopping center Amoreiras, all at walking distance. ... more less
