The new hotel offers 67 rooms, with views over the Tagus River and the city itself, as well as a restaurant, “A Mesa”, which offers a selection of contemporary Portuguese dishes and a wide range of dishes, the Five O'Clock Bar, and a modern gym, open 24 hours a day. The lower floor, which was once a bakery, serves a variety of breads and pastries.

Several items that belonged to the building's previous residents, such as an old bathtub, tiles and a washbasin, were kept and used as unique pieces of decoration in the hotel. Art and antiques from the local area support the modern decor.

The Emerald House Lisbon, Curio Collection by Hilton, is part of Hilton Honors, the guest loyalty programme of Hilton's 18 different hotel brands.

Simon Vincent, executive vice president and president of Hilton EMEA, said the hotel group “continues to expand into key destinations in our region, with nearly 30 openings in Europe last year, including the Hilton Porto Gaia and new Curio Collection properties in major cities such as Paris, London, Cambridge and Sardinia”.

“We are excited to bring the Curio Collection by Hilton brand to Lisbon for the first time – one of Europe’s most historic cities, which has become an increasingly popular leisure destination over the past few years”.

After the opening of the Boeira Garden Hotel Porto Gaia last year, The Emerald House Lisbon “represents the second property of the Curio Collection in Portugal and our sixth in the country. With six more properties in the pipeline, we remain committed to providing excellent accommodation in the best destinations in the world”.
