The super modern and cool decor at the hotel’s common areas set the tone for all other ambiances, with a dark reception, dim lighting, oversized red chairs, design furnishings and decorative objects. The Fontecruz is at an excellent location on Liberdade Avenue, the city’s main tree-lined boulevard, near attractive areas like Chiado, Bairro Alto and Principe Real. Excellent restaurants and cafes aa well as interesting sights to visit are a short walk away. Its seventy rooms make for a very good boutique hotel, most decorated in black and white with design elements and large images of Lisbon adorning its walls. Request a room facing the avenue and with views to the treetops or a lovely suite with a balcony or terrace overlooking the city’s rooftops. One of the best restaurants in town, the JNcQUOI is just blocks away, and the hotel’s bar attracts non-guests as well.
