Mama Shelter Lisboa, Vibrant New Hotel in Lisbon, with stunning views

OFFERisbon may be a city built on seven hills, but for those of us who love to walk, that feeling must be a few dozen. But an added bonus from such undulating terrain (not the strong curves) is that any chance you get to see its horizon is always rewarding – it truly is one of Europe’s best places.

That’s why the newest pick for Room Key, Beast Travel’s exciting new hotel series, is Mama Shelter Lisboa, home to one of the city’s best new rooftops with undisturbed views. obstruct this ancient city.

Opened in January, the property is the latest from the shabby Mama’s Shelter group that started in Paris a decade and a half ago and expanded across France and then to localities as far away as Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro. Mama Shelter Lisboa is located just a few blocks from Parque Eduardo VII and the upscale shopping district of Avenida da Liberdade, which climbs to and from the city’s harbour.

The decor of the hotel is intentional with lots of azulejos-inspired rugs, recycled table tops, pastel pink and green stairs, Alice in Wonderland bathroom checkered.

The hotel itself is housed in a limestone-clad cube with Viúva Lamego tiled floors.

There are 130 rooms in the hotel, from Small what we now call efficiently designed with queen-size beds to Large, featuring kings and separate seating areas. In between are the Medium rooms, some with a terrace. All rooms have couches with loud tropical motifs as well as free movies (included, hotel would love to inform you, X rating). One small detail that I love is the large walk-in shower with hooks to the interior wall, meaning you won’t have to go out in the cold after a steamy shower to get your towels.


Mama Shelter Lisbon has two F&B options. The first is its restaurant, which they describe as a Portuguese twist on a French brasserie. You’ll find a variety of dishes you might find at any established hotel worldwide (artisan pizza, generous salads) but with local dishes like cod salad, sautéed clams and pica-pau , a Portuguese dish made with gravy, beer, and cuts of beef. When I visited in early April, almost all the people I spoke to in the restaurant were from the immediate vicinity and the couple sitting next to me claimed that they had been coming two or three times a week since it started. open door.

The second option is the rooftop that not only offers sweeping views of the city down the Tagus River, but also DJs performing Thursday through the weekend.
