About us

The Lumiares is our love letter to Portugal. A celebration of everything which makes Lisbon unique.

From a former XVIII century palace to a stylish, characterful space in the heart of the Bairro Alto area. Our hotel is an homage to Lisbon’s golden light and bohemian charm. A unique and indigenous experience for all who visit.




Our style

Our design is inspired by the light and patterns of the stunning Bairro Alto area.

We wanted to capture the personality of Lisbon, so we collaborated with local Portuguese businesses and artists at every opportunity. From the sculptural brass chandelier above our Grand Staircase, to our bespoke collection of original artworks.

Every element has been thoughtfully sourced and crafted. Stylishly laidback, authentically Lisbon.



Our apartment-style rooms are designed to feel like homes from home. Stylish living spaces and private kitchens in the heart of the city.

Discover Lisbon at your leisure – this is your own personal corner of Portugal.

We have sadly made the decision to close our doors for the short-term. It makes sense in these strange times and the safety of our guests, neighbours and team have remains our priority.

Thank you for all your support. If we can help in any way then please let us know – contact us, whether to postpone an existing booking, make a future reservation or simply to address any other questions you may have.

We are looking forward to reopening in July and will let you know once we have a set date. With that in mind, stringent new health & safety measures have been implemented.

We have also partnered with a private chauffeur company we trust and will be offering complimentary airport transfers from Lisbon airport or hotel parking for those arriving before October 1st 2020.

Until next time; stay safe, keep dreaming and hopefully see you soon…
