Stay the Night: Baixa House, Lisbon

"Hotels offer many things, but in cities the rooms are notoriously compact..." my review of Baixa House in Lisbon from this weekend's Independent on Sunday. I stayed [and paid] there on my trip to the city in April and it converted me to the idea of serviced apartments over hotels. I'll admit my enthusiasm mainly centres on the fact you don't have to fit into a hotel's breakfast schedule, but also - as you can see from the pics above - these apartments have been so beautifully designed you feel like you're in photoshoot from Elle Decoration.
