Off the top of our head, we can come up with three reasons why you would want to stay at the Bessa Hotel Liberdade.
Firstly, it is located in the Avenida da Liberdade, ten minutes away from the city centre and the Chiado. Secondly, despite being a small hotel, it takes full advantage of every nook and cranny in the building to create little social hubs – one of which comes with large armchairs and vintage travel luggage. Finally, the covered swimming pool on the roof, which doesn't give you much of a panorama but is a fine place to rest and get your vitamin D levels up. The hotel might look a bit conceited at first, but that self-confidence is justified. Its 113 rooms are simultaneously chic, vintage and practical (some of them have a balcony facing the street). Bathrooms are luxurious, pristinely white and they have an integrated Bluetooth sound system. Everything else is about living the good life. The hotel restaurant tries to innovate, with a contemporary menu with dashes of traditional cuisine to go along with a good selection of Portuguese wines. Any other food emergency can be settled at the front desk, any time of the day. As for the pool, we regret not having spent more time there: its warm water felt great while outside it was rainy and windy. We didn't check the temperature outside, but as we left the pool our skin was steaming. Right next to the pool, the gym, the sauna and the Turkish baths complete the fitness circuit. Then you can relax. Free wi-fi is available.
