3 Hotels to Stay at in Lisbon

Colossal azulejo-tiled palaces, colorful towers, cobblestone streets, hallmark yellow trolleys, dynamic concept stores, and refined restaurants: Lisbon, Portugal offers all this and more. With a treasure trove of unique boutique hotels within Portugal’s capital city, we’ve highlighted three of our favorites below.

1️⃣ A storied palace with Moorish and Roman origins fittingly refurbished in the 1990s, Palácio Belmonte (@palaciobelmonte) is one of Lisbon’s most exclusive boutique hotels. Solely housing ten sumptuous suites, travelers can expect azulejo-tiled walls (beautifully exhibited in @zorymory’s photo)—there are over 3,800 in the palace as a whole—adorned with contemporary art & modern furnishings.

2️⃣ Located in the trendy neighborhood of Bairro Alto, The Lumiares (@thelumiares) is a five-star hotel that pays homage to Lisbon—not only design-wise with lights, colors, and pallets inspired by the city itself—but also through ongoing collaborations with local artists and Portuguese brands. We love on-site, Lumi Rooftop, which offers the perfect place to both enjoy a meal and admire a breathtaking view of the Portuguese capital.

3️⃣ A restored 19th-century estate, the stunning Pestana Palace Lisboa (@pestanapalace) overlooks the River Tagus in Lisbon. Upon entering the lobby, guests will feel immersed in a regal setting as walls with impressionist oil-canvas paintings, antique furnishings, and stained-glass windows provide a glimpse into old Portuguese opulence. The on-site restaurant, Valle Flôr, is a gastronome’s dream, not only with its famed ambrosial dishes (we love the salmon & swordfish) but also with its elegant, fine-dining atmosphere.
