There is a magnificent library on the top floor with a picture window opening onto a delightful balcony.  This is an ideal place for quiet reading with the rooftops of Lisbon below, the cruise ships at their terminal, and the wide River Tejo (Tagus) stretching out below.

In the window of the library there is an old brass telescope to look more closely at the interesting sights.

The Hotel, like the street from which it gets its name, has a gentle, romantic and welcoming atmosphere.

Eca de Queiros, the famous Portuguese novelist, wrote about a magical home "O Ramalhete" in his novel "Os Maias".  There are many who think it must be based on this Lisbon home which he loved.

The memory of his presence is still very much alive in the atmosphere in which we find ourselves once we enter the Hotel. There are small objects d'art, books, paintings and other articles of an earlier era.

Though history is all around, Lisbon is very much an international city of today, with a vitality and bustle of its own.  

Take time during the day to visit the many museums and monuments that line the river front.  

An evening visit should be made to the lively city centre and also to some of the many restaurants which have the famous Fado, a uniquely Portuguese form of singing.  

The World Heritage Sites of Monastery of Jeronimos and Torre de Belem should not be missed.

There are a number of excellent golf courses in the area, please click here for details.
