Located in the heart of Lisbon we reached the dream of restoring a building in Pombaline Downtown, transforming it into a set of historical apartments without elevator. The family project has been developed with strong inspiration in the Portuguese roots and built as a tribute to the clan matriarch. This is why we named it after her: Otília Hotel & Apartments.
We have three types of apartments, each one with a bathroom, 2 bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a living room, with the max. capacity of 5 people:
Apartment with views to Augusta Street
Apartment with balcony and views to Augusta Street
Apartment with balconies and views to Augusta Street and the Castle.
We are located right in the centre of Lisbon's Downtown. This means our guests are in the perfect starting point to explore the city and all of its monuments and sites. Also, we are located within 30 minutes of many wonderful beaches known for their surfing conditions.
We are less than a 5 minutes walk away from Baixa to Chiado metro station (Blue and Green lines), and less than a 15 minutes walk away from Rossio train station (Sintra Line) and Cais do Sodré train station (Cascais Line). You are welcome to ask us for directions to the many beaches in the outskirts of Lisbon.

Surf conditions in Lisbon:
Air Temp (°C)
Downtown Lisbon city itself does not have a beach and walking around siteseeing you may be oblivious to the fact that dozens of beautiful white sandy surf beaches are only a 5 minute car drive away (Or 4 train stops!)
The surrounding beaches pick up all the swells the Atlantic have to offer making it one of the most consistent surf destinations in the World.
The area has a good selection for all standards. Closest to the city would be Caxias & Santo Amaro de Oeiras. Caxias is a beautiful beach that on its day can produce perfect lefthander barrels. Oeiras is more of a winter wave and is one of the best waves in Portugal.
Next stop is Carcavelos, probably Portugal's most famous wave. Its one of the best beach breaks in Europe and regularly hosts National competitions. It suits all standards, a perfect place to learn and a great place to score some fast beach barrels with multiple peaks along the 1km stretch of beach.
There are many other spots along the coastline that runs from Lisbon out to Estoril & Cascais. Long boarders will love Sao Pedro and short boarders will thrive on spots like Poca and Sao Joao. Then on the other side of Cascais there is the stunning long white sandy Guincho beach, one of Portugal's most consistent surf spots, usually best in the morning as it can be exposed to afternoon onshore winds.
Across the river Tejo in Setubal, a 20 minute drive away, is the less crowded Costa de Caparica. Perfect for beginner/intermediates as the man made jetties create nice consistent waves. The beach stretches for 30kms and all of it is surfable!
Lisbon is also a great base to explore other regions. The surf mecca of Ericeira is only 35 minutes drive away and 1 hour north is Peniche, host of the WSL World Tour every October.
