Featuring 67 rooms, an all-day restaurant and a sleek bar, The Emerald House Lisbon, Curio Collection by Hilton has now opened its doors in the Portuguese capital.

This stylish debut marks the latest stage in the rollout of the prolific Curio Collection by Hilton brand.

A historic location

The 67-key Emerald House Lisbon is situated amid the historic palaces and churches of the Portuguese capital, with views over the River Tagus and city. The hotel takes its name from the street it sits on, Rua das Janelas Verdes, which translates as ‘Street of Green Windows’.

Simon Vincent, executive vice president and president, EMEA, Hilton, said: “Hilton continues to expand in key destinations across the region, with nearly 30 openings in Europe last year, including Hilton Porto Gaia and new Curio Collection properties in leading locations including Paris, London, Cambridge and Sardinia. We are thrilled to be bringing 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.

“Following the opening of Boeira Garden Hotel Porto Gaia in Porto last year, The Emerald House Lisbon marks Portugal’s second Curio Collection property and our sixth property in Portugal. With another six properties in the pipeline, we remain committed to providing exceptional accommodation in the very best global destinations.”

A reflection of the site’s past

Elements of the restored building’s past are celebrated throughout the hotel’s interiors, and the ground floor – which was formerly home to a bakery – is once again serving bread and pastries. Original items from the property’s former life, such as tiles and an antique bathtub, have been used to decorate the hotel, along with art and antiques from the local area.

Inside the hotel, guests can refuel at the all-day Portuguese restaurant A Mesa and elegant Five O’Clock Bar, while the scheme’s additional amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Jenna Hackett, global brand head, Curio & Tapestry Collections by Hilton, said: “With a portfolio of over 100 unique hotels and resorts around the world, Curio Collection properties are all about providing authentic and curated experiences that are distinctive and draw inspiration from local areas – The Emerald House Lisbon does exactly that.

“Antiques and art that reflect the area’s 18th-century heritage create an elegant and authentic ambience for both leisure and business guests. This is an exciting opening that truly reflects the brand’s character, and we are thrilled to start welcoming guests to this one-of-a-kind hotel in a premier travel destination.”
