Mama Lisboa, Lisbon, Portugal

Opening Jan 2022

Global Tech News Daily

Known for its cheeky and affordable crashpads, French brand Mama Shelter will kick off the year by bringing its signature sass to the Portuguese capital, with a 130-room property set between hip Principe Real and swanky shopping street Avenida da Liberdade. Mama Lisboa pays homage to Lisbon inside and out with a Viúva Lamego tiled facade, columns decorated with Bordallo Pinheiro fish ceramics and wave-patterned carpets inspired by the Tagus River. Boho-look bedrooms pair straw lampshades, colour-pop pillows, cork-framed smart TVs and leafy ceramics with a kooky pop culture reference or two, as well as organic, plastic-free toiletries. There will be a rooftop bar for port tonica sunset toasts which segue into Portuguese-meets-French brasserie suppers, accompanied by twinkling fairy lights and DJs spinning chillout tunes, plus a pizzeria, cocktail and coffee bar.

Rooms from £76, room only.

The Julius Prague

Opening spring 2022

Famed coffee pioneers and the folks behind Austria’s upmarket food emporium Julius Meinl am Graben (the Viennese answer to Fortnum and Mason’s), the Meinl family adds a fresh string to their bow this year with their first foray into hotels. Launching in the Czech capital this spring is The Julius Prague, a gorgeous 168-room pad inside an Art Deco building, reimagined by Italian architects Matteo Thun & Partners. Interiors have a restful, autumnal palette (inspired by the works of celebrated Czech artist Alphonse Mucha) and promise to give ‘a feeling of home’ with soft orb lighting, comfy beds topped with eco-conscious Quagliotti linen and refillable toiletries. Most have living rooms behind oak-panel dividers, and many have fully mod-conned open-plan kitchens, too. Communal spaces include a bistro restaurant and laid-back lounge (ideal for co-working), and there will be electric car charging points on site.

Rooms from £160, room only.

Another hotel icon and jet-set magnet on course for a 2022 revival is the Byblos Hotel, a historic property half an hour from Marbella’s beaches.
