Centrally located and right in the middle of luxurious Avenida Liberdade, the upscale Hotel Valverde is an excellent boutique option in the region. Classic yet contemporary, its 19th century façade opens to a beautifully designed interior, with a tasteful and harmoniously discreet décor that blends neutral and vibrant tones, dark walls and light fabrics, art objects and antique pieces. The comfortable rooms differ in size, with the “mini” rooms measuring twenty square meters, and for a king size bed upgrade to a suite. The swimming pool is small and mostly in the shade, so venture out to the seaside if sun tanning is your goal. The staff is very friendly and go the extra mile to please guests.
