1908 Lisboa Hotel just opened in February. The building itself has actually been around quite some time but this is the first time it’s been used as a hotel property and it is a work of art. Lisbon is known for its pastel hues and unbelievable tiles, my room had views of pastel buildings but I couldn’t get over the decor and the color schemes within the rooms. It immediately caught my attention from the moment I walked through the front door!
I might post this on every hotel review because I am judging all of them by their ability to make a solid breakfast. 1908 Lisboa obviously had delicious pastries but their jam was something I would like shipped to the states on a regular basis (please and thank you). If I could’ve gotten that jam past airport security, I would’ve packed it in my carry-on. I am a southern girl and kindness goes a long way in my book, so when I tell you that I had a ridiculously early flight to Morocco with no possibility of any reasonable breakfast… the kind hotel staff arranged to have hot coffee and breakfast ready at an unbelievable hour, I will never stop saying, “obrigada.”
The steak here is one of the best I’ve had. It’s served with fries on top and may be the best thing on the dinner menu (aside from dessert). I also enjoyed a cocktail called 1908… it’s not for the faint of heart. I highly recommend it.
