The Editory Riverside Santa Apolónia Hotel is the new five-star hotel unit in the city of Lisbon. With a total of 126 rooms, it invites you to embark on a unique journey through the history of one of the most iconic buildings of the Portuguese railroads.
A refined atmosphere, sober without being austere, elegant in its lightness as a host of travelers, it was designed for citizens of the world with all the comforts of hospitality, technology, and service that a five-star hotel unit can offer.
Its nearly 10,000 square meters of construction surface have been spread over the east wing and upper floors of the central body of the station in the new hotel of The Editory Collection Hotels group. The project aimed to rehabilitate a part of the train station building that wasn’t used, and thus is no longer essential for the provision of rail transport service.
Signed by Saraiva + Associados, the architectural project asserts itself in a façade of sober lines in burgundy, which stands out on the riverfront with greater expression of the original stonework and original decorative details that mark this neoclassical style building. Right in front of the new Cruise Terminal and located at Avenida Infante D. Henrique, The Editory Riverside Santa Apolónia Hotel returns to the history of the Portuguese railroad and its immense legacy of regional connection by railroads.
The exclusivity of Portuguese flavors
A meeting point for the main Portuguese products, The Editory Riverside Santa Apolónia Hotel restaurant is an ode to authenticity: with a menu full of fun dining options to share, the dishes are inspired by the products that faithfully represent the various regional train lines that converge at Santa Apolónia Station.
Seasonal produce and exclusive flavors from all over the country serve as inspiration to Chef André Silva to create regionally inspired contemporary proposals that pair with a wine list of Portuguese wines from different regions.
Seating 122 people and opening daily between 7 am and 1 am, it suggests boarding in an ample space with executive lunches and à la carte dinners. An imposing bar in the center recreates, in a refined way, an environment that recalls the interior of a carriage bar, with a snack menu fulfilling the faithful task of offering options that illustrate the various regional raw materials that arrive by rail to Santa Apolónia.
Right above the main entrance, where the iconic balcony was the stage of several Portuguese political historical events is located, Sala Nobre (Noble Room) hosts meetings and events under a magnificent 19th-century stucco ceiling that has been fully restored according to its original design. With a capacity of up to thirty people, natural light, and technology required for meetings with projection equipment without cable or wireless connections, Sala Nobre can host exclusive events for small groups, benefiting from its proximity to the bar and restaurant area.
Sustainability and the art of welcoming
Focus on sustainability positions The Editory Riverside Santa Apolónia Hotel as a national reference, since it is BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) certified.
