Recently, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Palacio Ramalhete, a boutique hotel in Lisbon.
Staying at the Palacio felt like stepping back in time; the thoughtful decoration was in keeping with the original style of the building, giving you an experience of what the palacio would've been like for the European nobility during the 17th century.
The decor was grand yet understated, with stunning, well chosen paintings scattered around. By spacing the rooms out, Palacio Ramalhete has created a feeling of intimacy for each guest, making it feel like you've got the place to yourselves. I'd definitely recommend taking a look if you're in Lisbon.
