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 to be our top priority.

We have a great business we love, with fantastic people we are fortunate to work with and equally fabulous guests who have overwhelmed in the last few weeks with messages of support – thank you all – your words mean everything. We will be back, hopefully sooner than later. Until then; stay safe, keep dreaming and see you very soon…

PS. Already have a booking? Even on a non-refundable rate? Relax, these are unprecedented times. Postpone for another date and we will happily amend your booking. Also, to help, we have partnered with a private chauffeur company and are offering free transfer from the airport if you rebook before April 30th. In the meantime, if you have any questions at all please email
