Tings Lisbon is not a boutique hotel - just a nice place to stay

A media update to friends of our hotel. Lisbon’s best museum reopens! 

We get hundreds of news updates about Lisbon everyday. The best and most relevant stories we share with friends, guests and followers here on Tings Lisbon’s blog. Mostly stories about things that interest us personally or things that are relevant to our hotel or Graça.

Like this one from all the way from The Malaysian Online about the reopening of MAAT on Wednesday.

Enjoy.

Designed by the architecture and design studio AL_A, the museum is housed in a brand-new, low-slung structure that joins a recently renovated power station, together making up a greater art campus.
