Budget hotels in Lisbon offer inexpensive accommodation options for visitors seeking to economise in the Portuguese capital. At Pensão Residencial Portuense the emphasis is very much on value for money but not at the expense of comfort and cleanliness. Likewise, Evidencia Light Sta Catarina Hotel provides a pretty basic but economical base from which to explore the city. Amenities at Pensão Globo are more basic but this guesthouse is still popular with visitors counting the pennies. Traditionally styled Casa do Patio by Shiadu is a rare combination of budget and boutique, where good design doesn’t mean high prices. A little out of the city centre (but on the metro circuit) is Hotel do Chile. Here 2-star amenities are clean, comfortable and wholly adequate for cost-conscious visitors. Similarly, Princesa Hotel & Tea is another 2-star property highly regarded by budget travellers for the quality of its guest facilities. Backpackers often make a beeline for the smart Pensão Nova Goa, where the bed and breakfast offer is entirely adequate. Meanwhile, the Botânico Hotel up in Principe Real is known for its comfortable and stylish presentation, with prices set below the norm for this kind of property. For something a bit different check in to the South-American themed Amazonia Lisboa Hotel. A bit dated perhaps, but still very convenient. But if you’re looking for a more familiar brand, the Ibis Lisboa Liberdade is always worth staying in.
