The hotel is named after the street where it is situated, Rua das Janelas Verdes, which translates to “Street of Green Windows.”
Located in a restored building in a prime position, steeped in history and favoured by 18th century nobility, accents of the property’s cultural heritage echo throughout the interiors. The ground floor, which was once a bakery, serves a variety of delicious breads and pastries. Several items that belonged to the previous residents of the building, such as an antique bathtub, tiles and a sink have been kept and used as unique pieces of decoration in the hotel. Art and antiques from the local area underpin a modern and elegant décor, creating a distinctive ambience perfect for those looking to discover authentic Lisbon.
When not exploring the best of the city, guests can sip and graze on contemporary Portuguese drinks and dishes at the hotel’s restaurant, A Mesa, or unwind with a crisp glass of Vinho Verde at the Five O’Clock Bar. A 24-hour, state-of-the-art fitness centre is also on hand for those wanting to stay active.
The Emerald House Lisbon is located next to the National Museum of Ancient Art, where guests can learn about the cultural history that surrounds them. A short stroll will lead to the upmarket neighbouring areas of Chiado and Baixa where travellers can marvel at impressive palaces, browse independent boutiques and explore the vibrant restaurant scene. For those seeking a digestif, the iconic Cais Do Sodre – known as ‘Pink Street’ – due to the unusual and charming colour of its pavement – is a short walk from the hotel.
