The Pestana CR7 Hotel stands out as a fusion of elegance, athleticism, and contemporary style. It is part of the esteemed Pestana Group, established in 1972, and known for its distinguished Portuguese hospitality. In a collaborative venture with Cristiano Ronaldo, the CR7 Lifestyle Hotel brand was born, with the inaugural property launching in 2016 in Ronaldo’s hometown of Funchal.

Situated in the historic Baixa Pombalina district, the hotel offers a central location near Praca do Comercio, the stunning square facing the Tagus River, and is conveniently close to vibrant nightlife, shopping, and theatres, all within an easy walking distance.

Drawing inspiration from Portugal’s vibrant colours and art, the Pestana CR7 Lisboa features an Art Deco design. Textures, lighting, and football-themed elements are seamlessly woven into the hotel’s décor. Elevator screens showcase Ronaldo’s sports highlights, and football-shaped lights brighten the corridors, with walls textured like a football and the sound of cheering crowds echoing through the hallways.

Inspired by Ronaldo’s love for football, the theme extends to artwork displayed throughout the hotel, including in the guest rooms. The double rooms boast a contemporary design, comfort, and an abundance of natural light, equipped with standard amenities such as a Nespresso maker, fridge, TV, and Wi-Fi. Select rooms feature unique rugs adorned with seven of Ronaldo’s footprints.

The walls are adorned with black-and-white images of cheering crowds, while white dots on the ceiling create a ball effect, adding a playful touch. The bathrooms feature a mix of marble and plasticized surfaces, LED lighting, and Ronaldo’s signature brand of toiletries.
