It may have taken a little while to catch up with its continental contemporaries, but Lisbon has finally upped its accommodation options by adding swish boutique hotels to its chain stays and aging guesthouses; and new hotels are opening all the time.
If you want to be close to the shops, restaurants and nightlife, stay in the Baixo-Chiado and Bairro Alto districts, else head to Avenida da Liberdade for the international chain hotels.
For a quieter slice of life, try west Lisbon or Belem, a 20-minute tram ride from the city. In peak season (July to September), book ahead.
The hotels in Lisbon below have been classed into three different pricing categories:
Luxury (over €180)
Moderate (€120 to €180)
Cheap (up to €120)
The prices quoted above are the starting prices for a standard double room, including tax but excluding breakfast, unless otherwise specified.
