Pestana Rua Augusta Lisboa is a hotel for a truly memorable stay, located in a restored iconic building in Lisbon’s Baixa district. This is the perfect starting point for unique experiences in the Portuguese capital. It lies in the heart of the city and such an invitation is just too good to resist.
This hotel in Lisbon’s Baixa district is located next to the
Arco da Rua Augusta, a symbol of eighteenth-century Lisbon. It leads to the
Praça do Comércio, facing the Tagus River, one of the most magnificent locations in Europe. The very lively Rua Augusta is the ideal location from which to explore the Baixa district, with its selection of monuments, renowned boutique shops and vibrant culture.
The rooms at the Pestana Rua Augusta Lisboa are welcoming, comfortable and quiet, with a light, relaxing atmosphere and are completely soundproof. Nearly all of them have a balcony overlooking these historic streets, and some even: have a view of the castle on the hill, where Lisbon was founded.
EACH SPACE IS LISBON PERSONIFIED
Designed for city explorers, laid-back couples or lively families, the rooms at Pestana Rua Augusta Lisboa all share one thing in common: a strong link to historic Lisbon. They are spread over five floors, corresponding to different ways of experiencing the city, and are decorated with botanical patterns.
RESTAURANT AND SERVICES
The hotel radiates nature. Each floor has a distinctive plant or floral theme, in harmony with the urban hustle and bustle. The restaurant Olive serves healthy eating options using local, seasonal produce. The bar features a hidden gem: a mural by the renowned Eduardo Nery, a modern master of ceramic tile art. The terrace on Rua Augusta gives you a front-row seat for watching the city spectacle unfold.
