This chic 25-room hotel occupying a townhouse in the middle of the grand Avenida da Liberdade, a tree-shaded boulevard lined with top designer boutiques, is within walking distance of Baixa and Chiado. The contemporary but warm and quirky décor was designed by Porto-based firm Bastir, which also designed the Bairro Alto Hotel. The cheerful, youthful staff provide top-notch service in both the hotel and its very good Sítio restaurant located in the basement, adjacent to a leafy courtyard. The property also has a pool, a hot tub and a library-like lounge just off the wood-paneled reception area. Our masculine Junior Suite, painted in tan and black, had herringbone wood floors, walls decorated with etchings and abstract prints and a striking mix of contemporary and vintage pieces. (Avoid Mini and Classic rooms.) In season, the Valverde’s sailing yacht, the Windrose, cruises the Tagus. This hotel will delight those seeking a tranquil residential atmosphere.
