It’s said that this charming late 18th-century man- sion was once the home of Portuguese novelist Eça de Queiroz, inspiring his magical novels O Ramalhete and Os Maias (recently made into a pop- ular film). As well as examples of his books and paintings, the place is cluttered with antiques. But there’s nothing fusty about it: as well as flatscreen TVs, guest rooms all have CD/DVD players and free Wi-Fi.
There’s a lovely leafy back yard with an ivy-clad patio, and a reading room with river views. There’s no restaurant but the hotel does offer room service and an honesty bar. The Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga is right next door.
