The name of this bed-and-breakfast means "the house of stories" and it has quite a story of its own. In 2009, a couple of weeks before it was due to open as a meticulously restored 19th-century townhouse B&B, fire swept through the building, destroying the interior. The architect owners pressed ahead, but now beyond the tile-covered facade there’s nothing old timey about the place. It’s hip looks are minimalist and contemporary, with large rooms spun off from a raw concrete staircase. Each guestroom is individually designed: white and bare cement grey are the dominate colors, enlivened by bright splashes—a gold framed mirror, mustard leather sofa, blue sky shining through the skylight or broad bedroom windows. It can feel a bit like living in a rather austere art installation, but the welcome is warm and there's a cute garden outback. Located close to the Casa da Musica and the up-and-coming Cedofeita neighborhood.
