About Us

We are Shiadu

Shiadu is the name of the charming accommodation group that opened its doors to travellers from all over the world in June 2009. What started out as one bed and breakfast, became the first ever guesthouse chain, with seven boutique guesthouses and a 3-star hotel located in the heart of Lisbon and Porto.

Located in traditional areas, all the accommodations have easy access to public transport and are at walking distance from must-see attractions and iconic neighbourhoods. The typical buildings – some of which date back to the 17th century – have had their historical features preserved, which come together with comfort and stylish decor to create a unique atmosphere that can only be found in Shiadu accommodation.

While continuously expanding, Shiadu group maintains the same fundamental mission that it started its journey with: to provide guests with an unforgettable experience that goes way beyond accommodation.

Our Mission

The Shiadu group´s mission is to provide every guest a unique and unforgettable experience, that goes beyond a simple accommodation experience. The excellence, dynamism, commitment, the transparency and dedication to every guest, along with the social and environmental projects, compose the company´s essence.

Working on a daily basis for ongoing innovation and improvements, Shiadu group aspires to be a reference in the accommodation business. In addition to well-located lodges in touristic areas, with a careful and personalized decoration and high service standards, the guest and his well-being are a priority in the daily routine.
