The Lumiares resides in a meticulously restored 18th-century palace, a historic gem that captures the essence of Lisbon. This former palace’s rich heritage sets the stage for a unique hotel experience that blends contemporary luxury with historic allure. It’s a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World, a testament to its exceptional quality and service. With 47 well appointed dwellings spread over four floors, The Lumiares offers an inviting and personalized environment for business and leisure travelers. The hotel combines the best of a 5-star hotel with the comfort and style of a high-end apartment, offering spacious, exquisitely designed rooms that ensure your stay feels like a home away from home. It’s personal, not corporate, and relaxed, not stuffy.

The Lumiares takes pride in highlighting the authenticity and personality of Lisbon. Nearly every item in the hotel, from furniture and artwork to textiles and room accessories, has been conceived, designed, and manufactured in Portugal. The hotel’s commitment to collaborating with local Portuguese businesses showcases the best of what the country has to offer. Stepping into The Lumiares is a journey through Portuguese craftsmanship and design. Room 2 Fit, a leading bespoke furniture manufacturer, provides much of the mid-century modern furniture, reflecting a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity. Hand-woven tapestries by Ferreira de Sá adorn the walls, adding contemporary twists to traditional Portuguese patterns. The result is a harmonious fusion of old and new, much like Lisbon itself.

The Lumiares’ architectural design pays homage to Bairro Alto’s dynamic mix of patterns and light. This district, home to artists, merchants, and lively bars, inspired the hotel. Bold geometric prints inspired by the area’s patterns and contrasting colors grace the hotel’s materials, fabrics, and artwork. The lobby’s striking black, white, and brass-accented flooring and captivating brass chandeliers capture the spirit of Bairro Alto. As you wander through the rooms, you’ll find abstract and geometrical original artworks that reflect the beauty and diversity of Lisbon. This is more than just a hotel; it’s an immersive experience that envelops you in the city’s soul.


The Lumiares boasts 47 beautifully designed and spacious apartments, ranging from 35 to 120 square meters. These light-filled, airy spaces feature wooden-style floors and high ceilings. Each apartment has fully fitted kitchens and lavish bathrooms, ensuring your every comfort is met. The large windows offer panoramic views of Lisbon’s rooftops and lively streets, a constant reminder of the city’s vibrant energy. The three Penthouse apartments even have private terraces, providing an exclusive retreat within the heart of Lisbon.

Dining and drinks are central to The Lumiares’ sophistication and charm. Lumi Rooftop, located on the fifth floor, is a culinary gem that captures the essence of Portuguese cuisine. Lisbon’s light and textures inspired the restaurant’s renovation, creating a space where guests and locals come together to savor everyday quality food in a vibrant atmosphere. João Silva, the mastermind behind the culinary delights at Lumi Rooftop, draws inspiration from his grandparents’ farm-to-table approach. A graduate of the Escola Superior de Hotelaria e Turismo in Lisbon, Silva honed his culinary skills under renowned German Chef Jens Rittmeyer at São Gabriel, a Michelin-starred restaurant in the Algarve.


Chef João Silva’s culinary creations showcase the best of Portuguese “petiscos” (bites), offering a delightful exploration of local flavors. His culinary style is rooted in simplicity, enhancing the flavors of seasonal products. Silva’s journey includes stints at Bica do Sapato, Casino de Lisboa, and Open Brasserie at Inspira Santa Marta Hotel. Sip on cocktails infused with Portuguese ingredients while soaking in panoramic views of the Tagus River and Lisbon’s rooftops. Whether you’re there for brunch or dinner, Lumi Rooftop promises an unforgettable dining experience.
