H10 Hotels opens its new 5-star urban hotel The One Palácio da Anunciada, right in the center of Lisbon. The hotel is located in a privileged enclave, in the famous district of La Baixa, just a few meters from the Avenida da Liberdade and Praça dos Restauradores, near Lisbon's prime shopping area and main tourist attractions, such as the Santa Justa Elevator and the San Jorge Castle. The new The One Palácio da Anunciada is located in the Pálacio da Anunciada, a beautiful, meticulously-restored historic building originally built in the 16th century. The architectural project involved the recovery of some of the most significant spaces of the old palace, such as the building entrance, the royal main staircase, the old chapel, the halls of the main floor and the old kitchen, thus preserving all of the beauty and majesty of this historic building. The interior design of The One Palácio da Anunciada was carried out in collaboration with the well-known interior designer Jaime Beriestain, who, through his work, wanted to tell the story and the essence of the Palácio da Anunciada, within the context of Lisbon and Portugal. To do this, he has used materials from Portugal in the majority of the spaces and has opted for a timeless design that includes contemporary furniture that contrasts with a set of rooms that have been restored while still safeguarding the original style of the era in which the building was constructed. The hotel lobby welcomes guests, dazzling them with its exquisite marble floors, the beautiful frescoes adorning its walls, its coffered ceiling and its magnificent coloured windows. All of these are original elements of the old palace that have been delicately restored; like the spectacular marble staircase of the hall that grants access to the first floor of the building, where the historic rooms and extensive gardens of the palace are located, now converted into select common spaces for events and recreation. These common spaces are decorated with light oak wood, beige stucco, Portugal pink marble and aged copper, along with unique artistic works such as the large painting by the Portuguese artist José Pedro Croft, which is located at the Front Desk. The gardens and the outdoor areas of the hotel are also prominent features and boast a carefully curated palatial landscape design thanks to the use of symmetry and noble materials combined with pavement characteristic of the city of Lisbon, thus reinforcing the connection with the local artistic tradition.
The One Palácio da Anunciada has 83 rooms, 13 of which are Junior Suites and Suites designed to offer the perfect combination of distinction and maximum comfort through their use of neutral colours and noble materials, such as natural wood floors, stucco, and velvet upholstery as well as Portuguese pink marble elements combined with aged copper metal details and Dornbrahct taps in the bathrooms. In contrast, the design also includes traditional Portuguese decorative elements, such as the blue and white ceramic pieces that decorate the bed headboards and which are hand painted and designed exclusively for the hotel by Jaime Beriestain, who wanted to reinvent the concept of tile with them. The most stunning of its elegant rooms are the 30 m² Deluxe Garden, with its privileged views over the hotel gardens; the Grand Deluxe, 35 m², which is ideal for families looking for additional space, and the exclusive Tower Suite and Two Bedroom Garden Suite. The former, measuring 45 m² and designed in the style of a loft, is located in the old tower of the palace and offers a spectacular view over the city and its typical rooftops. The latter, measuring 85 m2, is made up of two connected rooms and has a large living room. All the rooms contain little details that ensure a unique experience, such as exclusive Natura Bissé Barcelona amenities and Egyptian cotton bedding from Casa Bassols 1790. The new The One Palácio da Anunciada offers varied dining options within three different spaces: the Condes de Ericeira Restaurant, the Boémio Cocktail Lounge and the O Jardim Wine Bar. Open to both guests and the locals, the Restaurante Condes de Ericeira, headed by chef Bruno Fradeira, offers cuisine based on Portuguese tradition mixed with Mediterranean touches. Located on the first floor of the hotel and overlooking the gardens, the restaurant is a unique space to enjoy a delicious lunch or evening meal in an elegant atmosphere, thanks to the great decorative wealth of its original ceilings with hand-painted frescoes. Located on the same floor as the restaurant and with two different areas - an indoor and an outdoor one located in the gardens - the O Jardim Wine Bar offers more informal dining options, including a wide selection of Portuguese and international tapas and wines to taste unhurried in a uniquely designed space characterized by its circular bar, rich coffered ceilings and a chandelier lamp made up of a hundred lights, all of which help create a relaxed and chic atmosphere.
For its part, the Boémio Cocktail Lounge, located on the ground floor of the hotel where the stables were formerly located, can be directly accessed from the street and has been converted into the perfect space for lunch in a casual environment, with a varied range of light dish choices. One of the jewels of the hotel is undoubtedly its magnificent 2500 m 2 gardens. In the main garden one can find the outdoor dining area of the O Jardim Wine Bar, open to both the guests and the general public, as well as different leisure areas, the palace's central fountain and another one of the most representative elements of the new The One Palácio da Anunciada: a hundred-year-old dragon tree, a rare tree recovered from the building’s original garden. On a higher level there is a French-inspired garden, dedicated exclusively to hotel guests and which has a spectacular 18-metre-long pool with a hammock area, solarium, a space with Balinese beds and a pool bar where guests can relax and enjoy a cocktail or a snack during the spring and summer months. The One Palácio da Anunciada also has a large wellness area, where the Despacio Spa at The One is located: a space that has everything you need to pamper your body and mind, with its wet zone bathed in natural light, its Finnish sauna, its experience pool with hydrotherapy, its shower with chromotherapy and in its two treatment rooms, where you can enjoy treatments from the exclusive Natura Bissé Barcelona brand. The wellness area also has a complete gym with high-end equipment, open 24 hours a day. The hotel facilities are completed with a meeting room located in the old kitchen of the palace, as well as four rooms for private events, with natural light and views over the gardens, perfect for the organization of any type of social or corporate event. Living up to its five-star rating, The One Palácio da Anunciada offers its guests exclusive services, including a Clef d’Or concierge, complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, private parking and valet parking.
