Hilton has announced the opening of two new hotels in Portugal, strengthening its presence in the region, as well as its expansion with two hotels in Iceland.

DUO Hotel Lisbon, Curio Collection by Hilton:
Located in the Cais do Sodré neighborhood, the DUO Hotel Lisbon features 75 rooms.

Guests can enjoy Portuguese cuisine at the Novo Mundo restaurant and pastries at The Voyage pastry shop. The hotel also includes a bar and an urban courtyard.

“We’re excited to introduce these two fantastic hotels to Portugal, where we have plans to more than double our presence. With more than 30 million visitors last year, Portugal remains an increasingly popular destination for travellers thanks to its rich heritage, vibrant cities and beautiful landscapes. With our second Curio Collection by Hilton property in the capital, and our first hotel in the Azores, we’re thrilled to further expand our range of properties and welcome more guests across Portugal,” -  David Kelly, senior vice president, Continental Europe, Hilton.

DoubleTree by Hilton Lagoa Azores:
