Always on the lookout for new places to send her friends and herself, Nadin Brendel takes us to her latest trip to Portugal this summer. First stop Lisbon and the homey Lisbon Story Guesthouse in Rossio.


What was the purpose of your trip to Lisbon?

Lisbon has been my secret love affair for 5+ years now. I make it a yearly ritual to visit – if possible in June. Gorgeous weather everyday!

Your first impression when entering Lisbon Story Guesthouse?

The Lisbon Story Guesthouse is beautifully tucked away on a little hill overlooking a busy square and my favourite Ginjinha A Ginjinha serving tiny cups of cherry liqueur.

I still remember my first impression because it was such sweet moment: I stood at the reception waiting for check-in. When I looked around I noticed this handsome young man sitting on the window bench watching the street life down in Rossi o Square. I took a quick photo and then introduced myself. Turns out he was the receptionist. We ended up talking forever – about meteorology (he’s studying to become a pilot).

What’s to steal in the hotel?

I thought the receptionist was pretty cute 😉

Any decoration idea to take from the hotel?

Window benches!

How was your room?

My room was super minimal – just like I love it. Keeping it simple is great when you have a mind full of a million ideas all the time 😉

A killer detail at the hotel?

The little notebooks attached to every room key where previous guests have written their experiences.

Tell us about your ideal 24h in the city

Here’s what I did: Wake up early, put on a dress, wander around town – ideally barefoot – while the city is still asleep but the sun is bright and warm, eat late breakfast, head over to a Miradouro and hang out there all day drinking Vinho Verde with strangers.
