    Luxury design boutique hotel with spa and top restaurant in the heart of Lisbon

    Located in the heart of Lisbon, between the popular districts of Chiado, Bairro Alto and Príncipe Real, you will find Palácio Ludovice Wine Experience Hotel. A luxury hotel with tasteful decor and a view of the São Pedro de Alcântara viewpoint and the beloved Glório tram. During your stay at Palácio Ludovice, you will be completely pampered and the hospitable staff is available for you every minute of the day. There's also no shortage of activities: explore the bustling center of Lisbon, relax in the wellness area, or enjoy culinary delights in the restaurant.

    Palácio Ludovice is the cream of the crop when it comes to luxury boutique hotels in Lisbon. As the former private residence of João Federico Ludovice, architect of King João V in the 18th century, the building is full of historical memories. The spaces have recently been brought back to life and are now transformed into modern rooms and suites with a beautiful design interior. The internationally renowned architect Miguel Câncio Martins wielded the scepter and under his wings the original 18th-century white-blue tiles, the fresco paintings, and the ceilings have been preserved in their authentic state and restored to their former glory.

    This top accommodation in Lisbon has all the facilities to make your stay a dream stay. Although Lisbon is a bustling city with lots to do, it's also certainly no punishment to enjoy the amenities at the hotel. Palácio Ludovice has a beautiful wellness area, where you can leave all the stress behind and enjoy some much-needed relaxation. You can get your workout in the fully equipped gym and in the evening, dine in the restaurant, where you'll be treated to authentic Portuguese dishes and French classics.

    Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway for two or planning a special outing with your best friend, this luxury hotel has everything you could want and more. A unique location, an iconic gastronomic experience in the Federico restaurant, wine tastings at the Porto Wine Institute, and the luxurious wellness treatments in the Caudalie Boutique-Spa ensure a stay at Palácio Ludovice Wine Experience Hotel that you will never forget.

    Ludovice Palace in the 18th century

    At the beginning of the 18th century, the architect João Federico Ludovice arrived in Lisbon, where he was commissioned to realize King João V's architectural dreams. In search of the perfect place for a private residence for him and his family, he found the perfect spot in the mythical Bairro Alto. What eventually appeared was a breathtaking five-story building of varying heights, complete with ornate columns, balconies overlooking the city, 18th-century blue-white tiles, royal rooms, and a stately staircase. During the renovation of what is now Palácio Ludovice Wine Hotel, as much of this history as possible has been preserved.

    Wellness and gym

    At Palácio Ludovice, the health of body and mind is highly valued. The wellness area is entirely dedicated to peace and relaxation, and you can go here for treatments with the exclusive products of Caudalie. These globally renowned skin products are free of parabens and made using extracts from grapevines. As a guest, you are also encouraged to stay physically healthy, which is why this accommodation has a complete gym with cardio and fitness facilities.

    Culinary delights and special cocktails

    The courtyard of Palácio Ludovice is the place for gastronomy lovers, wine connoisseurs, creatives, and those who enjoy life. Here you will find Federico restaurants and a cozy bar in the old cellar. In Federico's kitchen, local ingredients of the highest quality are primarily used. Here you can enjoy authentic Portuguese dishes and French classics. The bar has a luxurious ambiance and you can enjoy the most delicious cocktails with fine music in the background.
