Set in the heart of Lisbon, Pestana Pousada de Lisboa is emblematic of what the Pestana Hotel Group excels at – taking historical properties and weaving their cultural heritage with modern luxury. The building itself, which sits on the edge of Praça do Comércio Square, was once the powerhouse of the city. References to Lisbon’s rich past are displayed throughout the property thanks to the original art pieces, on loan to the Pousada from the city’s museums. Costa said, “Pestana Pousada de Lisboa is undoubtedly one of the best hotels in the country and a landmark in Lisbon due to its location, restoration, and quality of service.”
