A minimalist and sober concept hotel, centered on the typical architecture of the region, developed by the Portuguese design studio Promontório. It is therefore an atmosphere of light colors and noble and copper materials that make the hotel Pessao a chic place.
The hotel is named after Fernando Pessoa, one of the most important Portuguese writers of the 19th century. The most fascinating feature of Pessoa is what he called heteronimismo, in other words, the fact that Pessoa invented fictional authors called “heteronyms”, each having a “work”, a “biography”, a ” style “, a” physiognomy “different from the others and from Pessoa himself” orthonym “, that is to say of himself. The floors of the Lisboa Pessoa Hotel are dedicated to the main heteronyms – Alberto Caeiro, Ricardo Reis and Álvaro de Campos.
Another major asset of the hotel, its panoramic restaurant Le Mensagem. In an intimate and exquisite setting, the restaurant has an interior room with partitions allowing the division of a part of the restaurant in small spaces. Each compartment has a poem name, from the original work of Fernando Pessoa. The restaurant also has two terraces, a real belvedere of the Portuguese capital. From here you can see the Castle, the Tagus River and “Lisbon and its colorful houses”. The hotel has a well-being area of a very high quality offering several therapeutic techniques such as massage, acupuncture, osteopathy.
