Not just a hotel in Lisbon. this is the former Governor’s Palace, with 60 rooms, all different, along the Tagus River, in the historic center of Belem, one of the most beautiful and emblematic areas of the Portuguese capital.

This emblematic boutique hotel revives a unique historical legacy with quality, exclusivity and refinement. Erected in the former home of the Governor of the Tower of Belem, exquisitely restored on Roman remains probably from the centuries I to V, the Hotel Governor’s Palace is a palatial building with a Reception that was once Chapel, one restaurant with ceilings of the original vaults and a contemporary spa connected to the ancient thermal traditions of Mediterranean cultures.

Outside two pools, one for adults and one for children, reinforce the offer of leisure, making it even more unique and exclusive. Also the gardens with water mirror offer a serene and idyllic setting in the middle of the city, contributing to an even richer experience for guests and clients of the hotel.

The Tejo river in fornt and next door to national historic monuments, the Governor’s Palace is the natural choice for those who want to be in Lisbon, close to everything, culture, leisure and far enough away to feel quiet.

The entrance is through the courtyard where they remain the “cetárias” (stone vats) of ancient Roman fish sauce factory, “garum”, exported in amphorae throughout the Roman world. The lobby Reception is located in the former chapel, with walls restored original tiles, the wooden choir and double right foot. And beneath the courtyard lies a bigger surprise: the SPA Felicitas, 1,200 square meters, with some Roman remains in sight, indoor 25-meter pool, heated, dynamic and color therapy jets, sauna, Turkish bath, rooms treatment and gym.
The genuine historical and architectural value is revealed in each of the five floors of the hotel: the ceilings vaulted in the restaurant room, the successive arches of the ground floor rooms and wainscoting tiles in the rooms and suites. The south facing terraces offer guests and visitors a privileged terrace overlooking the outdoor pool, the Belém Tower and the Tagus River.

If looking for a five star hotel in Belem, Lisbon, the Governor’s Palace guarantees the best stay in a hotel that breathes history, refinement and luxury, just 2 minutes walk from the Tower of Belém.
