It's not just another hotel in Lisbon. It is the Palacio do Governor
(Governor's Palace, in English), with 60 different rooms near 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 heritage, whilst investing in quality, intimacy and
refinement. E Built on the site of the former house of the governor of the
Tower of Belem, exquisitely restored, on top of roman ruins probably from the
1st to the 5th century, the Palacio do Governor is a palatial building with a
reception that once was a chapel, a restaurant with original domes as
ceilings and contemporary SPA that's linked to the ancient thermal traditions
of Mediterranean cultures.
Outside, two swimming pools - one for adults, another for children - underscore the promise of leisure and recreation, making this Lisbon hotel even more unique and exclusive. The gardens with their reflecting pools offer a serene and idyllic setting in the middle of the city, contributing to a richer experience for the hotel's guests and visitors.
Close to the Tagus and national historic monuments, Palacio do Governor is the natural choice for anyone who wants to be in Lisbon, near everything, from culture to leisure and far enough from the frenzy of the city center.
The entrance is through the courtyard where the stone tubs of the ancient roman fish sauce factory. The lobby reception is located in the former Chapel, its walls paneled with Portuguese tiles restored to their original beauty, accompanied by the original choir stall and double-height ceilings. Meanwhile beneath the courtyard lies another impressive surprise: the Felicitates SPA, a 1,200 square meter facility, where preserved Roman vestiges stand watch over a heated 25-meter indoor pool with dynamic water jets, and which offers chrome-therapy, sauna, Turkish bath, therapy rooms and a gym.
The genuine historic and architectural value is revealed in each of the five floors of the hotel: on the vaulted ceilings of the restaurant room, on the successive arches of the ground floor rooms and on the wainscoting tiles in the living rooms and suites. The balconies facing south offer the guests and visitors a privileged terrace overlooking the outdoor pool, the Belem Tower and the Tagus river.
If you are looking for a five star hotel in Belem, Lisbon, the Palacio do Governor guarantees the best stay in a hotel that breathes history, refinement and luxury, just 2 minutes walk to Belem Tower.
