Lutecia Smart Design Hotel

Hotels Campo Grande/Entrecampos/Alvalade
The story of the Lutecia hotel starts in 1969, the year it opened with a “bold concept” for its time. In 2006 the hotel changed hands and concept – it was now a “smart design”. Based at Areeiro, more precisely 200 meters away from the tube station that will get you to the city centre, and just had a recent renewal. Night floors high and 175 rooms that come with a promise for a panoramic view of the city.
Double room from 62€/night

Hotel Excelsior

Hotels Avenida da Liberdade/Príncipe Real

Just off Avenida Da Liberdade Boulevard and 250 metres from Marques de Pombal Square, the Excelsior provides rooms with en suites and room service. For your convenience, enjoy satellite TV, a minibar, bathtub and hairdryer. A daily buffet breakfast is served in the hotel’s dining room. Guests can have a drink in the cosy bar or read a newspaper in the lobby.

Twin or double room from 85€/night


SANA Malhoa Hotel

Hotels Campolide

Enjoy large modern rooms from SANA Malhoa, a spa, Turkish baths, sauna and outdoor dining in the hotel's Mediterranean restaurant. Each room is soundproofed, has air conditioning and cable TV. Some also have a separate living room. A quick walk away is the shopping mecca that is El Corte Inglés Shopping Centre.

Double room from 88€/night

Zenit Lisboa

Hotels São Sebastião
The front of the building is an instant eye-catcher, combining its traditional architecture with a modern blue. The Zenit is a four-star hotel with eight floors close to the newly renewed, and very busy, Avenidas Novas (that are full of new restaurants and stores). The bedrooms are simple but modern, the restaurant has an “internationally modern” menu and the bar serves wine and cocktails until late in the evening.
Double room from 67€/night

Hotel Convento do Salvador

Hotels Castelo de São Jorge
One of the oldest convents in Lisbon, right in the heart of Alfama and transformed into a hotel. Although the 43 rooms have a minimalist decoration the halls are full of works of art of reputable artists (Júlio Pomar, Paulo Rêgo and Sebastião Salgado are some of them) and a lobby filled with Portuguese tiles by the artist duo Pedrita.
The patio has a terrace and a pool. Operating at the same building is the Convento do Salvador centre with a cultural agenda focused on a younger audience.
From 94€/night

Hotel Expo Astoria

Hotels Avenida da Liberdade/Príncipe Real
A three-star “art hotel” with a concept inspired in art and design. The building has an art deco architecture and the rooms are both modern and functional. The location is also a catch: at Bramcaamp street, 300 meters away from Avenida da Liberdade and the shopping heaven it embodies.
From 80€/night

Empire Lisbon Hotel

Hotels Lisbon
It may go unnoticed amongst the tall city hotels but it’s a three-star hotel with 63 rooms, next to the Martim Moniz Square. The rooms aren’t very big but they have a fun, colourful and modern decoration and the price is affordable.
