THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.

Enter our competition to win a stay at Memmo Príncipe Real, a hotel fit for modern royalty in Lisbon’s smartest neighbourhood.

There’s the cooling sea breeze that percolates through the city; the salty-fresh seafood plucked straight out of the Atlantic (and always followed by pasteis de nata) and don’t get us started on those azulejo tiles.

For years we’ve been in the grips of a Lisbon love affair that shows no signs of abating. We had a sneaking suspicion that you might be in the same boat, so we’ve partnered with Design Hotels™ to offer you and a friend a two-night stay at one of the city’s most exclusive hotels: Memmo Príncipe Real.

Tucked away among the low-lit bars and eclectic art galleries of Príncipe Real – Lisbon’s smartest postcode – this boutique hotel was once the home of Portuguese royalty but is now one of the city’s most refined, contemporary boltholes. From the outside, it appears like a glassy mirage. Inside, mid century furniture and earthy Portuguese handicrafts sit against checkerboards of hand-painted tiles and wood panelling.

Those lucky enough to bed down for the weekend in the hotel’s limestone-lacquered chambers will also be treated to a chef’s menu dinner for two at Café Príncipe Real, the hotel’s elegant restaurant which teeters on the edge of their terrace offering panoramic views over the Tagus below.

About Memmo Príncipe Real

If you’re a sucker for boutique shops, independent art galleries and buzzy bars, then this 41-room hotel and restaurant slap bang in the middle of Príncipe Real is for you. While at street level it looks like any other of the 19th century buildings typical of the area (it was once the haunt of Portuguese royalty) on the inside it’s a fusion of old-school Portuguese grandeur and modernist furniture, with a restaurant that has some of the best vistas in the city.
