Avenida da Liberdade Hotels
One Palácio da Anunciada
R. das Portas de Santo Antão 112-134, Avenida da Liberdade
The One Palácio da Anunciada is one of those gorgeously decrepit sixteenth-century palaces that’s had a contemporary vibrancy breathed back into its hallways—while maintaining the integrity of its past. The grand blush marble staircase that sweeps up from the ornate lobby feels all of 400-plus years old, but the guest rooms belong to 2019. Big beds, bigger bathrooms, and Nespresso machines fill the cool, creamy interiors. The spa area is small but mighty with stellar massages and facials on offer alongside an indoor plunge pool and a steam room. High up at the hotel’s crown is the real reason you came here. The hotel’s outdoor pool seems to hover above the city—a rare indulgence in the capital. The surrounding daybeds make the perfect vantage point from which to take in the detailed azulejo (tin-glazed, ceramic tilework) cladding and frescoes on the surrounding buildings.
