The Lisboans: Apartments in Portugal with Vintage Style, Breakfast Included

May 31, 2017

Noting for a future trip to Portugal: The Lisboans, a bright new apartment-style hotel near Lisbon’s city center. Housed in a former canned goods factory and renovated by owners/art directors Isaac and Tânia Almeida and architect Marta Fonseca, the hotel has plenty of vintage charm, Portuguese antiques included. Here’s a look.
