    In the circuitous, narrow streets of the picturesque Alfama district in the heart of Lisbon, visitors will find traditional shops, classic restaurants, gently weathered colored houses, and—just steps from the Cathedral and Sao Jorge Castle—the Memmo Alfama. In perfect harmony with the traditional houses that surround it, this cozy and laidback hotel implores its visitors to feel at home, welcoming them not only to borrow a book from the living room library or grab a slice of homemade cake from the 24-hour loyalty fridge, but also to integrate themselves into the district’s vibrant culture. It’s ‘Living Alfama’ program pairs staff suggestions for neighborhood delights with inside tips from locals themselves. And upon your return to the hotel, you can enjoy authentic Portuguese gastronomy and wines as well as the stunning terrace, bar, and pool—the perfect place to take in sweeping views of the city and Tagus River.

    Housed in a 19th century structure, the design concept for Memmo Alfama emphasizes tactile and long lasting materials. Abundant use of wood and warm tones create a soothing, homey ambience that balances the authentic with the contemporary. With their high-quality linens, natural woods, and a rich sandy palette accented by cool grays, each room is designed to connect guests emotionally with the destination. The polished cement bathrooms are stocked with Portuguese Saboaria bath gels and shampoos, the yellow of the toilet paper echoes Alfama's famous yellow tram, No 28, and framed retro record sleeves of famous Fado singers decorate the white walls. Room views vary, with guests either overlooking the inner flower-filled patio or the Tagus River and the houses of Alfama.

    RODRIGO MACHAZ

    Rodrigo Machaz is as comfortable with his surfboard tucked under his arm as he is walking the corridors of his three hotels, Memmo Alfama and Memmo Príncipe Real, in Lisbon, or Memmo Baleeira, situated in Sagres on the southernmost tip of Portugal. His hotel staff is family—local ambassadors for their regions—and his guests are friends. A born and bred hotelier, Machaz returned to the location of his childhood summer holidays to reinvent the town’s former Hotel da Baleeira, maximizing the foundation’s spectacular sea views and the abundance of natural sunlight. Machaz’s talent for highlighting what is beautiful and distinctive about a place also distinguishes his second venture—Memmo Alfama. Here, Machaz has curated an exceptional blend of local cuisine, design, history, and culture for his guests, from tips on where to hear Fado to the selection of fine Portuguese wines on the hotel’s rooftop bar. And with Memmo Príncipe Real, he brings a new sense of luxury to Lisbon’s hippest neighborhood.
