10 Best Hotels in Lisbon Offer Outstanding Accommodation Options

One of the best hotels in Lisbon is the Palacete Chafariz D’El Rei, located near the city’s historic Alfama quarter. Overlooking the River Tagus, this boutique hideaway has just six rooms, all with waterfront views. Nearby, actually sited within Alfama itself is another boutique gem, the chic and contemporary Memmo Alfama Hotel. The more centrally located H10 Duque de Loulé stands out for its beautiful 18th-century façade, with an interior that combines modern and traditional design elements. Elsewhere, standing tall in Parque das Nações east of the city centre, is the snazzy Myriad by Sana Hotels, a 140-metre architectural eye-opener that overlooks the River Tagus. Other hotel properties considered among the best in the Portuguese capital include the Sheraton Lisboa Hotel & Spa, the tallest hotel Lisbon! Meanwhile, a favourite city-break choice is Bairro Alto Hotel, located in the city’s elegant Chiado district. Feeling flush? Well, check into the Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisboa. A byword for refined luxury, this plush five-star stands over Parque Eduardo VII. Back in town, the environmentally friendly Inspira Santa Marta Hotel is commendable for its green credentials – this is the first hotel in Lisbon to win a coveted Green Globe award. Another excellent urban retreat is the smart Hotel Porto Bay Liberdade, located near fashionable Avenida da Liberdade. And for a romantic stay by the seaside it has to be the funky Farol Design Hotel, situated near Cascais.
