Where to Stay in Lisbon: Inspiring Bed and Breakfast Options.

The choice of bed and breakfast in Lisbon is extensive. In fact, B&B options provide visitors to Portugal’s capital with a diverse range of accommodation, anything from inexpensive guesthouses to stylish boutique properties. 

Typical of Lisbon’s upscale choice of B&B options is the chic, stylishly appointed Lapa 82 - Boutique Bed and Breakfast, located in one of the city’s most desirable residential areas. The equally refined Dear Lisbon - Charming House property, situated in the Santa Catarina district, also exemplifies the capital’s high-end B&B product. Meanwhile, Casa do Patio Guesthouse and Apartments by Shiado in the city’s Bairro Alto district offers a more traditional ambiance, fashioned as it is out of an original 19th-century townhouse. Similarly, the colourful interior design that characterises Solar dos Mouros in  Alfama reflects the owner’s passion for local art and culture. Exuding an equally attractive and contemporary atmosphere is Lisbon Dream Guesthouse, which sits near the landmark Marques Pombal roundabout. Super friendly Residencial Florescente Lisbon, located behind Restauradores, is known for its impeccable guest service and snazzy décor. Meanwhile, over in the Principe Real quarter is Pensão Londres, a charming reminder of yesteryear with its noble architecture and ironwork balconies. Back across town is Sete Colinas, a popular B&B and handy for exploring the culturally diverse Martim Moniz area. As its name suggests, Botânico Hotel is located near Lisbon’s botanical gardens and represents great value for a three-star accommodation offer.  And the no-nonsense DAH is another safe bet for those seeking a wallet-friendly B&B within shouting distance of the city centre.
