Loving Lisbon at The Editory Riverside Hotel

19 minutes | Saturday, July 9th, 2022

On Travel Talk today we are delighted to chat to Sonia Fragoso the General Manager of the very elegant Editory Riverside Hotel in Lisbon.  Formerly a convent and a train station, this newest five-star hotel in Lisbon opened it's beautiful doors earlier this year.   The Editory Riverside Santa Apolónia Hotel, located in Lisbon’s iconic Santa Apolónia station, is a true tribute to Portugal’s rich railway past. The project began to be developed in 2017, and for The Editory Collection Hotels group, which already has nine hotels in Porto, Tróia and Lagos, the Santa Apolónia station was the perfect space to debut in Lisbon.  There are 11 different types of accommodations, and in addition to rooms with river views, there are others with balconies and suites, one of which is quite special: the Rosacea Junior Suite has the original stained glass windows and skylights. One of them overlooking the heart of the station.  Station view rooms are quite spacious and good value.  A night at the new luxury hotel in Santa Apolónia, and Lisbon, costs from €149.50 for 2 people sharing.
