A rare combination of comfort, tradition, authenticity and modernity. A haven inspired by Eça de Queirós’ greatest work that promises to win over many hearts and souls.
In The Maias (written by Eça de Queirós, one of the great authors of literary realism in Portugal), Ramalhete was the home of the Maia family, the appearance of which varied according to the fortunes and misfortunes of its owners. 125 years later, the most iconic building of the author’s work has a relative of equal stature.
Palácio do Ramalhete is a charming hotel in the Janelas Verdes area of Lisbon and occupies an 18th-century palace, which was carefully and tastefully restored to preserve its timeless charm and intense Portuguese character.
This palace opened its doors to offer guests the ultimate in Portuguese experiences; a place where classic good taste combines with contemporary comfort and luxury and somewhere where fantasy has no limits and where the River Tagus plays the role of good companion.
The impressive decor mixes pieces worthy of an antique shops with designer items and magnificent (and very old!) panels of azulejo tiles, one of Portugal’s most famous decorative arts.
Those who stay at Palácio do Ramalhete can choose between 12 rooms and suites that are distinguished by layout and theme (there are attic rooms with sloping ceilings that are hopelessly romantic and the bedroom inspired by The Maias) and by the views (some overlook the garden and others have a river view), which are all impeccably decorated and equipped. Common areas include a breakfast room, a bar and lounges. There is also a swimming pool, a solarium area and a number of florid terraces.
Because guests here are always the first priority, feel free to make your voice heard, the hotel staff is very happy to make your stay even more memorable.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Ramalhete is the ideal starting point for discovering Lisbon. Like the hotel, the surroundings are a perfect fusion of old and modern Lisbon, with the National Museum of Ancient Art and some of the most avant-garde galleries of Lisbon located on the same block.
