Our member Hotel Britania Art Deco is among the winners of the Historic Hotels of Europe
Our member Heritage Lisboa Hotels is pleased to announce that the Britania Art Deco Hotel has been recognized with the prestigious “Historic Art of Hospitality Award 2023”, awarded by Historic Hotels of Europe.
Winner of the Gold Award, the historic Lisbon hotel was chosen by its guests and the travel community of Historic Hotels of Europe for its dedication to hospitality and excellence. Founded 25 years ago and with members in 22 countries, Historic Hotels of Europe aims to highlight properties that embody the perfect combination of historical importance, excellent service and unique culture. The collection, made up of castles, palaces, villas and other properties, not only offers breathtaking destinations and sustainable hospitality, but also preserves each story for future generations.
In its 9th edition, the Historic Hotels of Europe Awards invited its followers (tourists, culture lovers and history lovers) to vote in ten categories that aim to evoke the heritage behind the most notable historic hotels in Europe. The ceremony took place on November 13th at Sierakow Manor, Poland. This year, the ten categories included a new one - Art of Hospitality Award.
The Hotel Britania Art Deco opened its doors in 1944 in the historic center of Lisbon. Standing out for the avant-garde style of the modernist architect who designed it, Cassiano Branco, it is the only hotel from that time that has survived intact to this day. With 34 spacious rooms and large common areas, the unit stands out for the elegance and sobriety of its interiors, where the deco language coexists with national symbols, which allowed its classification as a property of historical interest for the city of Lisbon.
“For the Britania Art Deco Hotel to receive this distinction represents a great source of pride. Every day the team strives to provide excellent service, honoring the historical heritage of an emblematic building in the city of Lisbon. The appreciation of this work is, without a doubt, a great reward.", says Diogo Laranjo, General Manager of Hotéis Heritage Lisboa.
