York House Hotel, previosuly a 17th Century Convent, is a haven of tranquility near the centre of Lisbon, Portugal. Situated in the aristocratic Bairro da Lapa area near the Tagus Tejo waterfront, west of the city centre, this attractive Hotel has been welcoming guests for over one hundred years. Inside, marble, tiled and polished wooden floors create a serene and cosy atmosphere that is typically Portuguese. Corridors are tiled and spread with rugs, a great improvement from the Convents former austerity! Behind a pink painted wall, at the top of a mysterious flight of stairs, lies a terrace with a profusion of flowers and trees where peace is absolute. This is the ideal place to read, enjoy a drink, or simply absorb the atmosphere of a different Lisbon.
