I stayed in a really old hotel last night. They sent me a wake-up letter.

Vidago Palace Hotel below may look very antique, but I bet it has fine pieces of furniture and stylish accessories in the bathrooms.  They wanted to avoid a luxurious impact and to be more discrete yet with a modern touch for the interior design. The old and the new doesn’t contrast as they chose modern but not fashionable furniture.


Grace Leo of GLA International has worked with architect Álvaro Siza Vieira and interior designers Bastidor to complete a renovation of the historic Vidago Palace hotel for its new owner, Portuguese drinks firm Unicer.
