Located in the oldest neighbourhood of Lisbon: Alfama
Conveniently located in the heart of Alfama, one of Lisbon's most legendary neighbourhoods, the Hotel is just steps away from the city's main tourist attractions: St. George's Castle, Sé Cathedral, traditional bars and restaurants, Fado houses, down-town Lisbon and Praça de Comércio, museums, belvederes, the famous no. 28 tram which passes right outside the door of the Hotel.
Access to the hotel in own or rented vehicle is conditioned, since we are in a historical district of Lisbon. It is therefore necessary to request a visitors’ card at the reception to drop passengers and luggage.
“H2O LISBOA” is a reusable bottle created to promote the consumption of Lisbon tap water in Hotel Convento do Salvador.
People often look at tap water as being a low quality product and tend to prefer bottled water. However, the fact is that Lisbon public tap water has one of the strictest quality controls in the world, and is monitored over 300,000 times per year, far more frequently than the standard quality control of bottled waters.
Our aim is to turn the act of consuming tap water into something trendy and fashionable, creating a design that plays with the general perception of what a “Premium Water” is all about.
The Hotel and Youth Centre
Hotel Convento do Salvador is an innovative socio-economic project which sets out to support the cultural activities of the Centro Convento do Salvador, geared towards children and youths, and operating in the same building.
The services offered by the Hotel, namely the organisation of meetings and events, are a result of a liaison with this Youth Centre, which has different types of venues and equipment at its disposal.
Both the Hotel and Centre belong to the Association for the Cultural Promotion of Children (APCC), a non profit, public utility organisation.
Art in the Hotel
A display of artworks by some of the most renowned Portuguese contemporary artists may be viewed throughout the Hotel, in both common and private areas.
As a tribute to the art of Portuguese tiles, the Pedrita duo were invited to paint the large panel in the hall of the Hotel.
Some of the works by the following artists are on display in the Hotel: Ana Hatherly, Ana Vieira, Ângelo de Sousa, António Costa Pinheiro, Bartolomeu dos Santos, Bela Silva, Eduardo Nery, Fernanda Fragateiro, Graça Morais, Helena Almeida, Ilda David, João Cutileiro, João Vieira, Jorge Martins, José de Guimarães, José Pedro Croft, José Rodrigues, Julião Sarmento, Júlio Pomar, Lagoa Henriques, Malangatana, Manuel Batista, Paula Rego, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Pedro Casqueiro, Pedro Proença, Rui Sanches and Xana.
