Palacio Principe Real | Luxury Boutique Hotel Lisbon | The Aficionados

Society Memoirs


Bedrooms are spacious and regal, yet stylishly urban, with British brands lending a touch of class as seen in the use of Drummonds to supply the baths – in this case the eye-catching shimmery gold, purple and canary-yellow tubs make centrepieces to the rooms. New York cult cosmetics brand Le Labo decorate the bathrooms and in the rooms SMEG fridges are filled with local treats to tempt you.

Despite its size, the Palácio Príncipe Real only has 28 rooms and suites, which was a deliberate design decision to keep the rooms to their original large dimensions. Some open out onto the garden, other have bijou balconies – a place to listen to birdsong from the greenery. For the grandest of all bedrooms choose the former ballroom – its airiness softened by decorative touches, Moorish stucco work and padded headboards.

Secret Collection

This collection consists of only two suites. Both are very spacious, one with twin or king size beds and a separate living area and the second with two queen size beds. Perfect for friends who are sharing a room or couples who prefer individual beds. The view from the windows is over the interior courtyard, there's plenty of natural light and the rooms have ceiling fans as well as airconditioning.
