Found\r\nat the town-centre Rossio end of Avenida da Liberdade, this 42-room hotel\r\nstands in a handsome period structure, previously inhabited by Lisbon's 18th\r\nCentury herb shops. Being the first city of the Old World to experience the\r\nplethora of potions and remedies that could be found in the jungles of the Amazon,\r\nfolk would come to this old building to find the newly imported remedies, herbs\r\nand spices.
The lobby pays testament to the building's history, with\r\nopen-to-all medicine cabinets that are bursting with different types of tea -\r\nalso an old colonial favourite of the Portuguese - giving off a wonderful\r\nambience of period Portugal.
Features\r\nget decidedly modern once in the dark-wood and caramel toned rooms: flat-screen\r\nTV's, Molten Brown products and Wifi are standard. Bag a street-facing room\r\nover the Avenida, where double-glazed windows keep the noise at bay when\r\nrequired, and the balconies are the perfect spot for an afternoon ginjinha\r\n(cherry brandy) accompanied by the hum-and-whistle soundtrack of the\r\ncity-centre.\r\n\r\n
