Continuing the concept created in Comporta, Sublime Lisboa’s exterior and interior design blend in with its surroundings. With the neighborhood’s magnificent architecture, the hotel mimics the wonders of the old aristocracy expressed with the massive windows, high ceilings, original staircases, and eclectic furniture.
Built in the 20th century, the hotel building has a legacy of more than 100 years, witnessing regime changes and revolutions. Until the 1940s, it was home to a Japanese community, Club Japonês, which began in the capital after World War II. In the late 60s, the building that is now Sublime Lisboa was a gathering for international jet-set figures like Audrey Hepburn, Aga Khan, and Diane Von Fürstenberg, where they gathered to attend the most dazzling parties of the high society.
If the walls could speak at Sublime today, guests would hear tales of the decades of the discoveries and celebrations Lisbon lived through.
Each room in the hotel has its personality, with a well-curated palette of colors such as natural fibers and indoor and outdoor greenery, inviting the city’s vibrant culture into each of the 15 rooms! Our favorite room would be the Sublime Suite located on the 1st and 2nd floors of the building, including a private outdoor terrace or balcony to enjoy Lisbon views.
