Solar do Castelo

History lovers won’t find a better location than Solar do Castelo, which is the only hotel within the São Jorge castle walls. The building was once the kitchens of the Alcaҁova Palace, with the exposed stone and restored archways hinting at its former life. The regal décor takes inspiration from the adjoining castle, with rich velvet and heavy drapes. Enjoy the hotel’s inner courtyard and well-kept garden and enjoy the privileged position.

Lx Boutique Hotel

Romance doesn’t have to mean shutting yourself away from all of the action. Lx Boutique Hotel is so well situated in downtown Lisbon that you will be tempted out of your room to explore the Bairro Alto and Chiado neighbourhoods. Each of the floors has its own theme, with local musical tradition fado serving as one and literature another, so decide which element of the city’s culture you’d like to celebrate during your stay. The hotel’s restaurant, Confraria do Sushi, is an added bonus for lovers of Japanese food.

Altis Belém Hotel & Spa 

Rating:

If Altis Avenida is the brash younger sister, then Altis Belém is the sophisticated older sibling that knows when not to apply lipstick. Minimalist and sleek, this hotel pays homage to its location in Belém, from where Portugal’s great navigators set sail. Experience treatments inspired by the world’s cultures at the B Spa, where Turkish baths and hammam rituals are performed. Housed within the Altis Belém is also the Feitoria restaurant, which has been awarded a Michelin star.

Palácio do Governador 

Rating:

As its name would suggest, the Palácio do Governador Hotel sits on the site of what once was the governor’s house. If you’re wondering what it was he governed over, then that would be the Tower of Belém, one of the neighbourhood’s most recognisable monuments. With 60 rooms, the site also housed a chapel and a factory, remnants of which can still be seen within the fabric of the building, adding to its character and unique identity.
