We stayed at Casa Amora for 4 nights in the studio - these were new rooms, so the decor, cleanliness and amenities were perfect. It was a good feeling to come back to the room after a hectic day of walking around the city of 7 hills. I personally loved the decor of Casa Amora, with the books, Bordallo Pinheiro ceramics, lovely azulejo tiles, Vista Alegre pieces.
Breakfast was thoughtfully prepared & served in the very lovely garden area..
The location is great: close to the Avenida Liberdade and the Marques de Pombal circle. The Rato metro and bus station are walking distance from the guest house. There's also a Pingo Doce for any last minute necessities.
But more than anything else, the lovely folks of Casa Amora, esp. Juan and Luis were lovely hosts. Juan helped us with the car rentals, mapping the key sightseeing areas in Lisbon, booking a Fado night and fried eggs, shopping tips (Bordallo Pinheiro) among many other things. When he asks us to call him anytime for help, he means it. We met Luis on the last day of our stay and he was equally helpful - booking our cab, more shopping recommendations!
We loved our stay at Casa Amora and we'd recommend this to anybody traveling to Lisbon!
- 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
