The sights, smells, tastes, and sounds of Lisbon are exhilarating delights for the senses, but it can all be a lot to take in. At the end of the day, or perhaps maybe even in the middle of the day when the soporific afternoon heat of summer is at its strongest, the luxury comfort of a hotel is a welcome respite. Lisbon offers an expansive array of hotel options, whether you’re looking for luxury, convenience, or a private oasis of calm. Here are our top 10 picks on where to stay in Lisbon:
Hotel Valverde lives up to its reputation! The staff is top notch, welcoming, informative and helpful from start to finish. Our room was beautifully appointed with the most comfortable beds of our stay in Portugal! The location is perfect. The breakfast absolutely delicious! We loved Valverde and highly recommend to travelers looking for a lovely boutique experience in Lisbon. Pamela K
The on site restaurant, Sitio Restaurant, offers views of the lush courtyard and heated swimming pool. Guests can bask in the warm Lisbon sunshine on the enchanting outdoor terrace by the pool. If your muscles are sore from attacking the hilly terrain of Lisbon, request a massage treatment in the comfort of your hotel room. The service staff are attentive and friendly and take effort in providing that extra touch for guests.
Valverde Hotel may be small but it packs a powerful punch and delivers in all the right ways.

The Olissippo Lapa Palace is beautifully situated on the hill overlooking the harbour close to Ponte 25 de April. A wonderful old style building, a quiet area and impeccable service makes this our hotel of choice for Lisbon. There is nothing to add to the many 5-star reviews that Olissippo Lapa Palace already has. Christoph S

Brilliant location. Excellent staff who were very friendly and helpful. Fantastic rooms. Very comfortable and well furnished. Breakfasts were outstanding.
Make the most of the hotel’s excellent facilities and take a dip in the spacious indoor pool or spend some time in the hotel’s spa. Dine at the hotel’s Lisboeta Restaurant where traditional Portuguese ingredients, like black pork, are used to create mouthwatering delicacies.

Staff were super friendly and helpful. Bed was huge and really comfy. Beautifully decorated hotel and we had a great view out over the river. Love the free port and pastel de natas. Delicious sushi in the restaurant. Located within walking distance from restaurants bars and sights. Charlotte

Amazing breakfast buffet, definitely worth purchasing. We could not have asked for a better location, would urge everyone to stay here just for that. It shaped our whole Lisbon experience. The square is so nice to hang out in during the evenings after exploring the city, and the military museum across the street is very informative about the history of Lisbon and Portugal. The train station is incredibly convenient, but the hotel is still quiet and feels more private. Absolutely stay here to get the best out of Lisbon.
