Lisbon is Western Europe in locale but circa 1960s in feel. With its throwback charm of laundry strung across alleys and cobblestone streets, the capital of Portugal defines retro. While historically it overdelivered on experience, its accommodations underwhelmed. That is, maybe, until now. This is the new hotel to check out in Lisbon.
Sublime Lisboa is great because it’s right in the heart of Lisbon. This makes it different from its sister resort, Sublime Comporta, which prides itself on its remoteness. Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in Europe and its streets are far from remote. A thriving scene and energy run through the city, making it come alive. Sublime Lisboa, situated in the Amoreiras neighborhood, is flanked by historic buildings and monuments that tell stories of Portugal’s past. But Amoreiras is not just about history. It’s also Lisbon’s cultural center, attracting artists, journalists, and politicians alike.
Rooms and Suites
Sublime Lisboa is set in a 20th-century townhouse that has been transformed into a boutique hotel. It only has 15 rooms and suites, but that’s what makes the hotel special. Each room is set up differently, giving guests individualized experiences. You can choose from four options: The Pateo Rooms include a bedroom, an en suite bathroom with rain shower, and a private indoor patio. The Lisboa Rooms feature the same amenities, but with street views and private balconies. The Marquês Suites are larger, with a sitting area and bathroom with a tub. Lastly, the Sublime Suites are the largest, with a spacious living room and a private terrace to soak up the atmosphere. But while going big is almost always better, Portugal is a destination of choice these days, so you might find yourself perusing the real-estate listings during your stay.
Restaurant and Bar
Sublime Lisboa’s restaurant and bar, Davvero, teases out Mediterranean flavors from fresh artisanal ingredients. Chef Isaac Tumi brings his experience of a life immersed in Italian cooking. (He’s opened Cipriani restaurants around the world, after all.) Under the vision of the executive chef of the Hélio Gonçalves Group, Tumi combines simple ingredients to create a rich explosion of tastes. The restaurant seats 24 and presents an elegant setting to dine, drink, and enjoy a good meal.
