The hotel in detail

Off the beaten track, Hotel da Estrela is a peaceful bolthole that was once the palace of the influential Counts of Paraty. Thoroughly renovated, it now provides 19 rooms and suites, a restaurant and bar, in a tranquil part of the city just 500 metres from the Basilica and within easy access of the centre.

This is a beautiful building that warranted Portugal’s leading interior designer, Miguel Câncio Martins to bring his special touch to the interior design. A creative mix of vintage school furniture with contemporary furnishings evokes a stylish atmosphere reminiscent of former schooldays, while still retaining the property’s sense of heritage.

Visit the Basilica and then find a nearby café and enjoy a fresh pastry and coffee in the sunshine. Then, wander through the Estrela Gardens before some shopping in the Chiado district. Return to the hotel for modern Portuguese cuisine in Cantina da Estrela.
