an eclectic Lisbon stay

 When my friends return from a trip, I tend to transform them into my personal travel guide. I want to know all the secret spots, their little adventures, the places they visited, where they had lunch and then keep all that information safe in my “Travel journal”. So from their recent trip to Lisbon I had the chance to learn about Casa Das Janelas Com Vista !

 Casas das Janelas com Vista is not just a hotel. It can be better described as a cultural meeting point, an artistic bed and breakfast or a hub where intellectuals, art lovers creative and eclectic travellers gather and enjoy the beauty of the Bairro Alto, one of the most liveliest Lisbon areas.

Each room is unique and has its own individual decoration, bursting with personality: the yellow iron table, the hand-painted wardrobe, the velvet chaise longue, and the old armchair, to mention some. The bathrooms are bright and spacious, perfumed with refreshing essences perfect for a relaxing bubble bath after an excausting day in the city.

The living room, a pleasant and a very bright space is filled with a collection of arty objets and quirky pieces of furniture where you can have your breakfast, sit on the small patio in the afternoon, play board games when you’re feeling tired of walking through hilly Lisbon. You will also find your personal corner to relax, read, talk, or enjoy a good Portuguese wine along with a portuguese cheese board.
