Valverde Hotel

Sivan Askayo
Liberdade

Right in the middle of Lisbon’s ritziest boulevard, this intimate boutique hotel was inspired by the subtle opulence of London and New York townhouses. So designers José Pedro Vieira and Diogo Rosa Lã opted for interiors that delivered high style and restraint. Each of its 25 rooms is individually designed, but they all feature a strong midcentury-modern aesthetic with plenty of texture. Area rugs in geometric patterns sit under couches cloaked in velvet; a king-sized bed might come with a teal or burnt orange headboard. (The only downside is that some rooms can be a little dark.) The patio around which the building orbits has a small pool. On warm mornings, it’s the perfect place to take breakfast. (Rooms, from $235)
