The Eurostars Das Letras Hotel in Lisbon has a distinctively literary theme, with each of the 107 bedrooms dedicated to one of the world’s literary greats -- canvases above the beds include a fragment of one of the author's original works. Writers, poets and playwrights including Virgil, Shakespeare, Dickens, Virginia Woolf, Calderón de la Barca and Saramago are all celebrated here.
The hotel is in Lisbon city centre, opposite the botanical gardens and near the famous Avenida de Libertado. Other attractions within walking distance include Praça Marques de Pombal square, the picturesque district of Bairro Alto, the Castelo de São Jorge, the historic streets of Alfama, Rossío Square and Chiado -- home of the world's oldest book store, Bertrand, which first opened in 1732. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants and designer shops, including Hugo Boss, Louis Vuitton and Cartier, and is a 6-minute walk from the Avenida Metro Station.
The hotel's contemporary Das Letras Restaurant serves traditional Portuguese cuisine as well as a range of international dishes, and features an outdoor terrace with panoramic views of the city. Gluten-free options are also available. The complimentary breakfast is served in in restaurant from 7am until 10:30am from Monday until Friday, and from 7am until 11am on Saturdays and Sundays, but guests also have the option of having breakfast in bed.
Each of the 107 rooms at the Eurostars Das Letras are dedicated to an individual writer, with an image of the writer in question on a canvas above the bed. All rooms include air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, a mini bar, tea- and coffee-making facilities, bath robes and satellite television, and great views over the city. There are 99 double rooms, 6 suites -- including a romantic suite -- and two rooms that have been adapted for disabled people. Smoking rooms are also available if preferred.
