GQ (Australia) - - TASTE + TRAVEL -

This con­verted nine­teenth-cen­tury palace oozes Old World charm, with al­most ridicu­lous baroque flour­ishes. Set in ritzy Lapa, huge pic­ture win­dows over­look nu­mer­ous man­sions as well as a long stretch of the Ta­gus River. Set among sub-trop­i­cal gar­dens, it’s an ur­ban oasis within the city, with most ma­jor at­trac­tions ac­ces­si­ble on foot, though given the al­lur­ing, sprawl­ing pool and luxe mediter­ranean restau­rant, Lapa, it’s some­times a strug­gle to leave. Rooms from $535 per night, Rua do Pau de Ban­deira 4; la­pa­palace.com
