Boutique Hotels in Lisbon

Top 10 Boutique Hotels

For the most part, boutique hotel options in Lisbon reflect the city's cherished cultural tradition. The majority of properties carefully preserve the Portuguese capital's rich historical legacy and several date from the 18th and 19th centuries. Others date from a later period and are more contemporary in their concept and design. All, though, offer the guest a unique and memorable visitor experience.

The list below represents the very best of Lisbon's boutique hotel product. It's not exhaustive, and opinion is bound to differ. But whether you're planning a city break, travelling on business or seeking a romantic hideaway, these top 10 suggestions will help you check out where to check in.

Chiado is Lisbon's most elegant and refined quarter. Noted for its upscale shopping and a collection of celebrated cafés and restaurants, it's here that Hotel do Chiado is located, housed in the top two floors of the attractive Armazens do Chiado building. Fine city views can be enjoyed from the terrace bar.

Occupying a prime position on the city's main thoroughfare is Heritage Avenida da Liberdade. This handsome property is beautifully wrapped in an 18th-century façade and is very convenient for those wishing to explore the fashionable designer stores that line Lisbon's premier avenue.

Back in Chiado, near the city's Bairro Alto neighbourhood, is the aptly named Bairro Alto Hotel. This is another fine example of a carefully refurbished late 18th-century property and also offers guests fabulous top-floor views and a gourmet restaurant.

Further downtown is the pocket-sized Vincci Baixa. A veritable bijou bolthole, the hotel's interior design is a stylish fusion of the classical and the contemporary. This is a convenient base from which to explore Lisbon's Baixa district.

Across town and slightly off the beaten track is Hotel da Estrela. The interior designers of this place have also worked their magic, artfully mixing vintage schoolhouse furniture with stylish mod cons to conjure up a delightfully offbeat hotel experience.

If art deco is your thing, book a room at Heritage Britania Hotel. Dating from the 1940s, this quiet and overtly unassuming property is crammed full of original artefacts, including a vintage barbershop.

Alternatively, if it's a romantic setting you're after, head for York House. This quaint hideaway is located on the fringes of the city's trendy Santos district and is partly built into the shell of a 17th-century former convent. By the way, the restaurant menu is Michelin recommended!

A relatively new addition to Lisbon's boutique hotel portfolio is lx boutique hotel near Cais do Sodré. Stylish and chic, each floor is themed to reflect a different cultural aspect of the city. Snug and compact, this is ideal for couples travelling light.

Back in Santos is As Janelas Verdes. Glorious river views can be enjoyed from the library at the top of this gracious town house that was once part of an 18th-century palace. Period character and vintage furniture is the draw here.

Finally, back in the city centre is the early 20th-century built Hotel Metrópole. Apparently a favourite haunt for spies during World War II, this reliable mid-range property is bang in the middle of everything - convenient then for your own snooping around.

Fancy you. If you need to stay in style, comfort and class, the boutique hotels of {0} are for you. Don't expect drab carpeting and cookie-cutter décor. These one-of-a-kind hotels cater to your travel needs with panache, and are oh-so-much more than a mere place to lay your head. Just make sure you look as good as your room.
