3 good reasons to pack your bags for Martinhal Lisbon Chiado Family Suites
For its apartment-hotel style rooms, ideal when you want to immerse yourself in a city and you travel with your family. The suites are fully equipped and ensure an ultra comfortable stay (family rooms, beds for children, cot, kitchen—including washing machine and dishwasher). You can also take advantage of all the services of an upscale hotel: breakfast is served every morning in the restaurant, room service is available if you want to have lunch or dinner quietly in your room, which is made every day… You’ll also appreciate the many goodies for children during the stay: a welcome gift awaits them on arrival (with, among other things, a pair of flip flops in the colors of the mascot of the kids club, success assured!), and there is a small survival kit in the kitchen, with milk, fruit juice and biscuits, enough for their first snack…
For their kids club, located on the ground floor of the hotel. The kids will be taken care of by the staff, a team that speaks French and English and knows how to open up even the most shy. Creative workshops, pajamas parties, cartoon screenings: the program changes every day and adapts to the age and nationality of the participants. A short nap room with a soft atmosphere is provided for babies and a playroom is available for parents who wish to enjoy play time with their children. An added bonus: in the morning, a staff member is present in the breakfast room to occupy the children once they’ve finished eating their nata pastéis. This is a real treat for parents, who have plenty of time to enjoy the calm of the delicious buffet (pancakes and eggs, fresh fruit juice, fruit salad, cheese and cold cuts, fresh and tasty pasteis…).
For their location in the heart of Chiado, a very animated neighborhood in the center of Lisbonne. Less than 5 minutes by foot, you’ll find the Time Out Market, a large covered market where about thirty kiosks offer tasting dishes simmered by the best restaurants in the city. Right next door, you can shop at the Mercado da Ribeira and bring back seasonal fruits and vegetables to cook in your hotel room. The Taj and its landscaped banks are also less than 15 minutes walk: go for a walk with the children and offer them an ice cream to taste with their feet—almost—in the water.
A hotel ideal for…
… parents who want to discover one of the most beautiful European capitals with their kids. The kids club program is very practical for combining romantic cultural visits, couples dining and family walks. You can have museums and great walks in the morning, while the children have fun at the hotel. In the afternoon, they’ll embark for the kid friendly program, and you can visit the Lisbon Botanical Garden, the castle overlooking the city or walk along the banks of the Taj family …
