Equally suited to three friends looking for a ‘Galentines’ (friends only anti-valentines) adventure or a small family heading to Lisbon for a dose of culture, AlmaLusa’s NEW three person Triple Rooms provide the perfect base.
Forgoing the need for the classic hotel argument over who will sleep on the sofa bed the four spacious 37sqm Triple Rooms can be set up with a King size and one single or three single beds, all with luxury feather mattresses so everyone can enjoy a heavenly night’s sleep.
AlmaLusa Baixa/Chiado is housed in a lovingly restored 18 century building meaning that each room is completely unique and comes complete with original features delicately highlighted by interiors which ooze Portuguese charm. Eschewing showy flamboyance in favour of a more restrained luxury which celebrates the hotel’s heritage everything, from the Castelbel products, to the wallpaper, to the heavenly sheets is locally sourced.
Other than the city’s enviable year-round sunny climate, the three top draws for Lisbon are its rich history, delicious food and dazzling architecture. Being based on the historic Praça do Município, where Lisbon’s royal palace once stood, means that the stylish hotel could hardly be better located for three keen adventurers looking to really get under the city’s skin.
In the nearby Praça do Comércio the city’s stylish independent boutiques, art galleries and cafés, offer plenty of opportunities for browsing and shopping. The hotel is just a stone’s throw from the Tagus River, a superb spot for a day sailing voyage to see the city of seven hills from a different angle. Cultural attractions such as Castelo de São Jorge and the Sé de Lisboa, as well as the atmosphere-laden fado bars of Alfama, are also just a short- and photogenic- stroll away.
Triple Rooms at AlmaLusa start from £160 per room B&B based on three adults sharing.

The relaxed 50-cover Delfina restaurant celebrates regional cuisine, with chefs using fresh, seasonal ingredients from the Mediterranean larder to craft moreish dishes, such as bacalhau à bras (a delicious concoction of scrambled egg, salt cod strips, onion and crispy fries). The alfresco dining area is an ideal spot for sipping fabulous local wines beneath the sun.
