There could hardly be a better base for luxury shopping on the Avenida than this drop-dead gor- geous five-star boutique hotel, whose stated aim is to serve as a home from home. Its interiors are a well- judged blend of 1950s and contemporary. Service is attentive but discreet. Some of the rooms only have a shower, but even the singles feature pretty spacious bathrooms.
Only the more expensive rooms have espresso machines and free Wi-Fi, but all overlook the Avenida. Breakfast (available up to the civilised hour of 11.30am) may be taken in the winter garden, which also has a small pool. There’s a small restaurant and a tiny private cinema that’s ideal for canoodling couples.
