Amy Adejokun Section editor

This beautiful 17th century building used to be a convent and when staying at this hotel you will be able to feel its peculiar atmosphere. The owner, however, managed to subtly combine a simple and contemporary style with tokens of this building's religious past. If you are looking for some peace and quiet and hoping to spend a weekend in Lisbon reconnecting with yourself, then this is the place for you.

    Location 6.0 /10

    Located in the residential district of Lapa, across the street from the Janelas Verdes hotel, the York House hotel offers a moment of tranquillity to its guests. The National Museum of Ancient Art is just a stone's throw away, and if you want to go out at night, the refurbished docks, with their restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, are just a few minutes away.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The hotel's 32 rooms are divided into 3 categories: standard, deluxe, and classic. The decor changes with each category. The standard and deluxe rooms are decorated in a modern and uncluttered style, while the classic rooms display a much older type of decor. Some of them have vaulted ceilings. White is to be found everywhere. The decoration in the standard and deluxe rooms is meant to be minimal, spare, and simple, as were the nuns' cells. On the other hand, the air conditioning, telephone, television, Internet access, safe, and minibar were all introduced to this establishment. Ornate with a square wash basin, the bathrooms are very modern and stylish. The floor and countertop are made of grey marble. Equipped with a bathtub and sometimes a shower, they also come with a hair dryer, bathrobes, and hospitality products.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Before becoming a hotel, this building used to be a convent, up until 1880. That year, the York House became a little boarding house, run by 2 English ladies. Renovated in 2003, the York House hotel subtly blends tokens from its religious past with a simple and contemporary design. To get in, you will need to walk up a few stairs to reach a beautiful patio full of flowers. The reception desk is on the right. The very pink modern counter may come as a bit of a surprise in this once religious property. A beautiful solid-wood staircase will lead you up to the guest rooms, which used to be the nuns' cells. A bar looking out to the patio serves a selection of refreshments.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    Looking out onto the patio, the restaurant has a beautiful and shaded terrace. Breakfast is served as a buffet, while lunch and dinner are served à la carte. The cuisine is Portuguese, with a hint of French inspiration. This restaurant has a very good reputation. Plus, it is located in the district of embassies and consulates and therefore attracts a number of politicians at lunchtime. The interior is somewhat dim, decorated in a Portuguese style, with azulejos, white walls, and arches. The menu changes 4 times a year.

      • 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.

      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.

      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.
