With its steep hills, charming cobbled streets, and mouthwatering pastries, Lisbon is one of Europe’s most charismatic capitals. With a plethora of accommodation options, it can be tricky and confusing to find the ideal place for you to start exploring the city. If you want the comfort of having your own place or room without the hefty price tag usually attached to a hotel room, then Airbnb is one of your best options. One of the best things about Lisbon is that you can get quality accommodation with the ‘holy trinity’ factors of comfort, convenience and beauty, all at very reasonable prices. After sifting through the countless listings, here are our top Airbnb picks:

(Note: do keep in mind that some of these listings are rare finds, meaning that they are usually booked during popular periods. So if anything catches your eye, don’t hesitate for too long - the good ones won’t wait!)

1. Spacious designer loft (from 156 USD)

If you are looking for that Instagram-worthy shot of angular and asymmetric lines, this top-floor loft in the heart of Lisbon is perfect for you. Despite it being located in one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, the building has been renovated recently and the loft features a wide range of modern amenities, including two en-suites with room-darkening shades and double-glassed roof windows that provide excellent sound isolation, so guests can be sure to have a good night’s sleep in this lively neighborhood. When you’re feeling recharged the next morning, amble along the narrow, cobbled streets of the historic Bairro Alto district that are lined with sophisticated designer shops, typical restaurants, fado houses and nightclubs. It would be an experience that you’ll never forget!

2. Room in St Jorge Castle (From 34 USD)

Everything worked smooth and in flexible ways. Location is very best possible with good views and charming environment just next to castle. Next door there is a nice little restaurant where you get the best home-made Portuguese food in very good price. Five minutes walk to fado-district, Baixa-shoppinghell, port, metro and even groovy parts in lisbon. Ari

Nestled in the heart of the Alfama district, the second-oldest neighborhood in Europe, the private room of St Jorge Castle Room is clean and cozy. From the kitchen window, you are offered a splendid view of the Tagus River. Guests laud the helpfulness of the host, the fully-equipped kitchen with fresh fruit and milk provided, and the proximity to many attractions. The other rooms in the apartment are also rented out to guests so you might have to share the common areas with them. For peace of mind, 24-hour check-in is available, so you don’t have to worry if your flight or train arrives very late at night or early in the morning. Just be sure to communicate with your host to ensure a smooth check-in!

4. Sunny apartment in Alfarna (From 45 USD)

Marisa waited us in the apartment and kindly explained the most important infos. The description matched perfectly with reality, this condo is of very good value. The flat was tidy and cosy, I liked the interior very much. The neighborhood was just what we wished for, silent at night, busy during the day and of central location. Nearly everything seemed to be in a walking distance within the central area. Réka

With a friendly host who works in a hostel, any questions you might have about Lisbon will surely be answered well. This beautiful apartment strikes a good balance between being close to the central attractions and providing you with a quiet night’s sleep. It is at the foot of Castelo de São Jorge and right near the famous Tram 28. Offering 24-hour check-in and even airport pickup (for a small fee), getting to the apartment will be a breeze. There is no washing machine in the apartment but your host will do your laundry for free, so do let her know if you need to get some washing done! The guitar is also a nice touch for entertainment purposes.

5. Sé Attic (From 46 USD)

It is a cosy well located and well-equipped apartment with super hosts! Cesar met us at the airport and drove directly to the place we lived. He also gave us super helpful tips on our neighborhood, on Lisboa locations and on our out-of-town trip. The apartment is just like on photos, very pleasant to stay in. Only good impressions! Elena

Located within a short walk of Praça do Comércio, the beautiful vast square facing the Tagus River, this charming apartment comes highly recommended by previous guests. Public transport is within easy reach, with the Terreiro do Paço metro station being a 2-minute walk away and a bus stop in front of the apartment. The building in which the apartment sits in is recently renovated, but there is no lift within the building. As the apartment is situated on the top floor, do take this into consideration, especially if you are travelling with huge suitcases. The apartment is also listed as not being infant-friendly (0-2 years old). That being said, if steps are not an issue for you, this apartment can comfortably fit 5 guests and the hosts even offer free airport pickup within Lisbon!

6. Stylish apartment inside the castle (from 110 USD)

We’ve tracked down this tastefully decorated and affordable second-floor apartment in Lisbon that’s as cozy and comfortable as it comes. Despite being located on a picturesque, narrow street in a centuries-old neighborhood, this apartment is updated in 2012 and features a comfortable bedroom, a fully furnished kitchen, and an elegant living room in its limited space. Among the many amenities in the apartment, the most outstanding aspect should be the breathtaking views of the castle and the river that it offers! With the castle within earshot, it is little wonder that this beautiful apartment has won plaudits from past guests, especially for its prime location.

7. Alfama Fado loft (from 87 USD)

Located between the Museu do Fado and Portas do Sol in the heart of Alfama, this modern and stylish loft is an ideal base for exploring most of the city’s attractions as they are a mere stone’s throw away. For instance, the National Pantheon, São Vicente Monastery, Sé Cathedral, and the Castle can be reached on foot. The historic Alfama district also houses an array of traditional shops and the best Fado restaurants, where you can listen to authentic Fado music while feasting on traditional Portuguese dishes. Aside from having plenty to do and eat in the area, there is also a wide range of modern comforts in the apartment that you can enjoy, including a cozy en-suite, an avant-garde dining and living room, and a fully equipped, open-plan kitchen.

8. One-bedroom apartment in Baixa (From 85 USD)

Had a wonderful stay at Maria's flat. The location was prime, very near to the water, and near to Praça do Comércio. She left wine, fruit and bread for us upon arrival and was very accommodating on our check out as we needed to leave later than the expected check out. The flat is done little justice by the photo's. She's done a fantastic job renovating the space to make it very comfortable, and while she's got plenty of remnants of old Lisbon, it has a very modern living sensation. Would recommend this flat to anyone headed to Lisbon, and I'll be reaching out again if I find myself visiting. Thank you Maria! Obrigada! Brandon

Step into the past when you stay at this house that has kept its original Pombaline structure (a Portuguese architectural style of the 18th century) and has incorporated a few historical pieces into the design. This charming property is just 3 minutes away on foot from the Praça do Comércio, and a few steps away from the Casa dos Bicos, former home of the first viceroy of Portuguese India. Surrounded by history and good restaurants and close to public transport, this listing is fairly popular. Guests also compliment the kind hospitality and attentiveness of the host, Maria. As there is no lift within the building, the climb to the fourth floor might present a problem for people with mobility problems. Children aged 10 and below stay free of charge, so this would be an ideal place to stay if you have young kids.

9. Flat with gorgeous views of the surroundings (From 91 USD)

Bruno was well prepared for our arrival and was very friendly and helpful. He gave us a lot of tips as to what to avoid doing and what we should definitely do in Lisbon. The flat was even better than in the pictures in our opinion. Also the location was just right, even though getting there requires some climbing so be sure to wear comfortable pair of shoes if you are planning on doing some walking! Petra

Watching the sun slip down the horizon over the red terracotta roofs of Lisbon is a magical experience. If you book a stay at this listing, you won’t need to make your way to a viewpoint. With an attached terrace, you can enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset from the comfort of this beautiful flat. Located in the Graça neighbourhood, you will get a truly local experience yet still have easy access to public transport and the main attractions. This listing also comes with essential business travel amenities making it suitable for business travellers as well. In addition, free parking near the premises is also available. Previous guests love the non-touristy yet central location and also the provision of a bottle of wine and snacks in the apartment.

10. Newly renovated studio with castle views (from 80 USD)

Pristine in a predominantly pastel color scheme, this cozy and functional open-plan studio is refined in its simplicity. Although it is part of a centuries-old property located next to the Castle, it has been recently renovated to include a modern bathroom, a tailor-made closet, and ample storage space. Guests will also have access to a stylish American-style kitchen and a simple dining area equipped with a cable TV. Should you wish to have a more romantic ambiance for dinner, there is a small outdoor space for al fresco dining, where you can enjoy close-up views of the Castle.

11. Spacious room in downtown Lisbon (from 29 USD)

The apartment sits in a very central location close to Rossio station, which is perfect for getting around and also for trips to Sintra. The place itself is clean and modern, and high up enough to catch a great view and not get troubled by any noise from the street below. Joana is a wonderful host and made me feel right at home. Jack

This is a private room but, unlike most listings, this bright spacious room can fit up to 4 people. This means you can come with a group of friends but still have the added advantage of having your friendly local host being around to give you tips on where to go or eat. The apartment is centrally located in the middle of Lisbon, overlooking Rossio Square. With the Rossio train station and Tram 15 stop located within walking distance of the apartment, you will have no trouble getting around (especially if you are thinking of doing day trips to Sintra and Belém). The kitchen is also fully equipped should you wish to do some cooking. Note that there is a late check-in fee of 20 EUR (22.20 USD) if you check-in after 8 pm.

12. Charming apartment in downtown Lisbon (From 45 USD)

My friends and I had the best time in the apartment! It’s a really spacious and comfortable place. The beds are super comfortable. I think the apartment is good for families as well due to the equipped kitchen. The location absolutely is amazing! Close to all the attractive places of Lisbon. Thank you so much for the pleasant time :) Avishag

This bright apartment is located in the Baixa district, the central downtown area of Lisbon, which makes it a great place to be based. From Baixa, it is a short walk to the historic Alfama district and the social nightlife of Barrio Alto. Previous guests appreciated the centrality of the location but noted that the downside of this is that it can be rather noisy, especially at night. The host has listed this apartment as not being kid-friendly, perhaps due to the noise levels at night, so keep this in mind before you book. However if you’re not a light sleeper and want to be in the thick of the action, then this property, which can accommodate up to 6 guests, will be perfect for you.

13. Perfect apartment in Chiado (From 52 USD)

Anna was very helpful and the apartment was really nice. Even had a cool view from one of the windows. You're literally half a block from the t28e line and one block from the metro station. This is a great place to stay if you wanna explore the area since you are next to or really close to all the public transport routes. You can hit up Cascais and Sintra quite easily from here. Noise? None and I was there on a Saturday. Super awesome. Eric

This stunning penthouse apartment offers a good combination of luxury and convenience. Located in the historical centre of Lisbon in the Baixa district, you can easily get to many of the attractions in the day and enjoy the picturesque view by night. The metro station Baixa-Chiado is just 2 minutes away from Perfect Apartment in Chiado. It is also tucked away in a quiet street so you are sure of a good night’s sleep. The best thing is that the building is equipped with a lift, so you can come and go with ease! Modern, spacious and well-located, this listing comes pretty close to perfect, wouldn’t you say?

14. Private room in downtown Lisbon (From 63 USD)

Amazing location (steps from the cathedral), clean and quiet place. The best hostesses who offer advice on sight seeing as well as provide lovely breakfast. Airbnb

Start your day right when you book this listing, as a delicious French-style breakfast with Portuguese pastries is provided daily for you by the friendly French hostesses. The breakfast has won the praise of many guests so it will definitely be something to look forward to! This private room for two is conveniently located 2 minutes away from the metro station of Terreiro do Paço, and the apartment is beautifully furnished. You also have access to your own private bathroom and to the fully-equipped kitchen (shared).

15. Romantic and cozy apartment in downtown Lisbon (From 100 USD)

The 18th century studio could not have been in a more ideal location! It is close to everything Lisbon has to offer. Olivier was a fantastic host and provided us with information on transportation, restaurants, local attractions and even Nespresso! I highly recommend his studio to anyone visiting Lisbon. James

In the mood for love? This recently redecorated studio apartment is just right for a couple on a romantic getaway. The owner has retained an original stone wall that imbues the place with a rustic feel, while the rest of the studio is modern and chic. The sloping windows of the attic roof allow light to flood in, creating a bright and airy space. In addition, the location is prime with the Santa Justa lift right at your doorstep, the famous Tram 28 and Rossio train station within easy walking distance, and surrounded by a variety of restaurants. A point to note is that the studio is located on the 6th floor and the building does not have a lift. But if you’re willing to brave the steps, a wonderful view of Lisbon awaits you.
