WC by The Beautique Hotels
People who are risking new ideas fascinate me. The first time, the first concept and in this case, WC Beautique Hotel was the first hotel that…
Nini Andrade Silva “does not follow trends, she creates them”, and she was the designer who risked this brilliant idea. Fortunately for us, the Beautique Hotels chain embraced this project, devoid of prejudice.
Have you ever considered sleeping in WC Beautique Hotel?
It is located in the Intendente, a trendy district.
If this neighbourhood is a trend in Lisbon, the WC Beautique Hotel is a trendsetter!
This is the first and only hotel inspired by a luxury bathroom!
How did I sleep at the WC Beautique Hotel?
I can tell you that it was great and that I slept beautifully. The bathtub, right at the foot of the bed, reminded me of the pleasures of a long bath. The water-coloured tiles on the walls combined with the velvet curtains and the stainless steel lamp in the shape of a drop of water formed a unique ensemble. The shower, toilet, sink and shower make a perfect family in this bathroom. The mirrors extend the experience, and the jewellery boxes are cute accessories. The elements, the textures and the sensations bring tranquillity and freshness to the soul.
What is the restaurant like at WC Beautique Hotel?
“Banho” is the name of the restaurant of this hotel. I ate shrimp risotto, and it was a real “flavour bath”. As I left the hotel at 6 am in the morning, I could not enjoy the breakfast buffet. However, the hotel is kind enough to prepare a treat for its early birders: sandwiches, cakes and fruit.
Helpful, the fact that they did not charge the drinks that were in the minibar in the room. I only leave a suggestion; not charging the water at the restaurant, starting from the same principle.
What surprised me most about this hotel?
The details. This hotel exudes good taste from floor to ceiling. It is a hotel whose design was thought to the maximum detail; it touches all our senses. The colour of the ever-present water, the scent of perfume emanated at the reception, the sound of softly falling water and the soft touch of bath towels and bed sheets. I felt that each piece of design was judiciously chosen.
It is an open-minded hotel, prone to new emotions.
One afternoon, I get into the elevator with one of the receptionists. She wore a pair of silk pyjamas, blue and with a soft pink line. She wore high-heeled pink shoes. I found her the most elegant receptionist I’ve ever seen. What grace, what comfort, and what originality only in this detail. I also wondered how lucky she was to be able to “work in her pyjamas” and what a pity that I could not buy an equal one at the reception! 🙂
And so it was with this ability to surprise me (even in an elevator) that I bid farewell to W.C. Beautique Hotel.
Location: Avenida Almirante Reis 35, 1150-018 Lisbon (Intendente metro station is less than 1 minute walk away)
