Hotel Britania: vestiges of Art Deco


Nestled in the historic heart of Lisbon, the Britania was designed by the famous Portuguese architect, Cassiano Branco.

As soon as you've stepped through the elegant arched gate, cross the hall loaded with chandeliers and tiles and introduce yourself to the reception desk, where you will be assigned one of the hotel's 33 rooms. Surrounded by the white marble walls, black lacquer, chrome, and satin, youll feel immersed in an Art Deco universe there is even an old barber shop, kept as a museum piece.

The wood-lined lobby bar is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious cocktail by candlelight, comfortably seated on a plush sofa. The elegant lounge serves hearty American breakfasts. The evening, after an aperitif, is the time to wrest yourself free from this comfortable cocoon just long enough to dine in one of the many restaurants just steps away.
