Tel: 351 22 201 3971's insider take:

This century-old, converted city-center town house has six stylish double rooms and a light-flooded common space that opens onto a small garden patio. The high-ceilinged rooms feature a seamless blend of classic and contemporary design elements: original moldings alongside mostly white decor, with a different colorful accent picked up in the chairs, bedcovers, and cushions in each room. All accommodations come with a bathtub and a small balcony (our favorite is room 1, which has a gorgeous original ceiling with flower-shaped moldings). What takes this place to another level, however, is the hands-on, friendly young couple who own it. Pedro Meneses and Mariana Soares will offer you a welcome glass of port, a map of the city, and a wealth of insider tips, including personalized restaurant recommendations. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, and a delicious breakfast (homemade cakes and sweets like tomato, pumpkin, and strawberry jams made by Meneses' mother) is included. Note that this hidden gem displays no visible sign outside, so look for the blue door and the street number.—Anja Mutić
