Amy Adejokun Section editor

An intimate and contemporary city boutique hotel with period Lisbon charm, the LX Boutique is great all-rounder. Extremely comfortable with friendly service and a great breakfast, it is one of the rare options that isn't yet overpriced in the Portuguese capital. A perfect option for couples and small groups of friends looking for a pleasant base to explore the rest of the city from without breaking the bank.

    Location 8.02 /10

    Right near a main junction with excellent bus, metro and tram links. The metro station is Cais do Sodré. South of the city, the hotel is a minute's walk from the Tagus River leading to the Atlantic just past the landmark icon, the Belem. The advantage of staying here, is that two of the city's major attractions, the Belem Tower and the Geronimos Monastery, are only a short tram rise away along the same axis and east. Otherwise, the other main city sights like the old neighbourhoods of Alfama and Alta are within 10 minutes' walk. The hotel sits on a main road with traffic driving by throughout the day and most of the night.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    Extremely comfortable and soothingly calm, the rooms are nothing too fancy, but are well maintained so that they are always in pristine condition. Every room has an enlarged photograph of a city scene or an iconic Portuguese aspect on the back wall, which may not be everyone's cup of tea, but aren't all too intrusive either; our photographer's room had a purple tinted image of a large fountain and mine had rows of Fado instruments. Each of the six floors has a theme.

    The rooms are divided up between four categories: 'Xssential', 'Xpanded', 'Xecutive' and 'Xplendid'. The first category is the smallest at 14m2, whereas the Xpanded and Xecutives come in at a roomier 22m2. Lastly is the suite, which is located right under the sloping roof of the house and measures 35m2.

    All rooms (with the exception of the suite), comes with three different types of views to choose from: street, rooftops or riverfront. Every room has mounds of charm and despite the sparse furniture and frills in the crisp décor; they are cosy and have all the expected mod cons such as a flat-screen television, mini-bar, safe and even iPod docking stations. Our favourite room was the Xpanded riverfront, due to it being spacious, the gorgeous view and the unusual bathroom. A-Every room has a silver capsule bathroom in the room, which we loved. The bathrooms added a futuristic touch, and the delicious-smelling environmentally friendly Parisian Sampar toiletries were a great bonus.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The hotel is located inside a hundred-year-old converted house, meaning that it retains a period charm that is rare to find in new builds; here the floorboards still creak under your step and in some places, the floors are uneven. Some of the rooms have mouldings, and a general intangible warm and cosy atmosphere.

    Once through the front door, you enter a corridor with the original staircase leading up to the rooms in front, the breakfast rooms to the left, which must have been the original lounge, and the reception to the right. The few pieces of vintage antique furniture, Persian rugs, portraits of noblemen and blue stripe wallpaper reinforce the history of the house.

    In terms of facilities, there isn't much on offer apart from the bar/breakfast room and complimentary internet - but when you have the whole of Lisbon to play with, who would want to stay stuck at the hotel anyway?

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel has a small breakfast room that doubles up as a bar throughout the rest of the day and in the evenings. The restaurant is also open for dinner and is a lively hang-out even by local standards.

    The breakfast consists in a small hot and cold buffet of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices, cold cuts, cheeses and hot food. All the produce on offer is of a good standard, and together with the friendly service, makes for a great start to a hot hard day's sightseeing.

      The Borges is the perfect pied-a-terre for those seeking to make the most of the Lisbon nightlife. Those looking for a little peace and quiet, on the other hand, had better look elsewhere, this hotel being more of a small boarding house where it's nice to rest and unwind after a hectic day.

      What better way to spend a holiday in Lisbon than finding yourself bang in the middle of the historic district of Chiado? If this sounds like your cup of tea, the Lisboa Regency Chiado is for you, but bear in mind that it does not have a restaurant or any facilities other than a bar. It is, nevertheless, the ideal place for a weekend in the Portuguese capital.

      • Location 9.97

      The Metropole is a small, charming and rather discrete hotel. It is ideally located on Rossio Square, which makes it easy to explore the city without wasting time getting around on public transport. If art deco is your thing, then you will probably find this establishment to your liking. If it isn't, however, you might find certain elements of the interior to be rather kitsch. It's a matter of taste!

      • Value for money 6.69
      • Location 5.84

      The residential Americano hotel is more adapted to young people with a low budget as it has few amenities. Moreover, the rooms are quite basic. It is definitely to be recommended to backpackers, for example. The undeniable asset of this hotel, however, is its central location in the heart of Lisbon, not far from the district of Rossio and perfect if you are looking to enjoy the local night-life.

      The Tivoli Lisboa is one of the best five-star hotels we've had the pleasure of visiting in this city. For starters, it enjoys a prime location at the heart of the city on one of the most prestigious avenues in Lisbon, the Avenida da Liberdade. It really does have so many assets, including an outdoor pool set amid a very pleasant little botanical garden, not to mention a panoramic restaurant which offers exceptional views across the city.

      Part of the local luxury hotel and restaurant group, Lagrimas, the Hotel da Estrela, is a small boutique hotel of 19 rooms located in a converted private home deep within Lisbon's narrow winding streets. Contemporary and pleasant, the highlight here, aside from the school themed décor, is the restaurant, where we sampled some of the best squid we have ever had the privilege of tasting on our travels across the world. A member of the Small Leading Hotels label, the hotel is indeed fully deserving of its reputation. An ideal place to stay for a wide-ranging clientele, from families to couples and due to its central location, most sights are within walking distance.
