Awarded luxury

For a bit of peace and quiet away from the city center, the design hotel Altis Belém is the place for you. Situated along the Tagus river, the rooms have a nice view of the marina, Torre de Belém or Ponte 25 de Abril, the characteristic red bridge. The spacious spa-like bathrooms are an extra plus.

Historic boutique hotel

Romantic and somewhat hidden hotel just steps away from the historic quarters. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Ask for a room with views over the Municipio square and don’t miss breakfast in the morning.

Room with river view

You can hardly miss the striking hotel Myriad by Sana if you visit the old Expo area, Parque das Nações, a former industrial wasteland that’s now a business district. The hotel’s location close to the airport is handy, and a cab to the city center takes about 20 minutes. Lie in bed (or in the bath tub) and enjoy the stunning view of the river.

Shoppers’ delight

A 4-star design hotel overlooking the main shopping street Rua Augusta, where you find mostly international brands and chains. Ask for a room with a French balcony for some street life. Each floor has a unique color theme to guide you home at night.

Pretty in pink

The lovely Tings, named after the Danish owners Thomas and Annette Tingstrup, is a new addition to the hotel scene in Lisbon. The globetrotting hotel entrepreneurs support young unemployed people and artists from all over the world, with the aim of creating a place for exchange. The rooms are decorated with Portuguese classics combined with Ikea furniture, and vary in sizes to fit both business and adventure travelers.
