You just have to make your pick. The one thing missing until last year was a hotel where you could comfortably spend 15 days without busting your budget.
Lisbon has no beaches, but it still fills up in the summer: many would rather walk around the city than sunbathe by the sea. Porto Bay Liberdade offers the best of both worlds: a five-star city hotel's luxury, the relaxation and friendliness of a vacation resort. The location, just a couple of minutes from the Avenida da Liberdade, is an added bonus for tourists: in fifteen minutes, you can get to the traditional shops of the city centre or the Chiado.
The hotel's name is a bit deceiving. You'd assume it has something to do with Portugal's second city, but actually it comes from Porto Santo, in the Madeira islands, where this group already has 11 other properties. This is their first in Lisbon. The 98 rooms on offer are utilitarian rather than dazzling, but they all have a choice of pillows, a tiny detail that can make or break your hotel stay. To make up for the lack of a spectacular panorama there is a rooftop lounge bar and jacuzzi. There is also a real swimming pool indoors, next to the spa/ gym. After a drink at the Aviator, a bar with old-style airplane seats, enjoy a long dinner at the Bistro4 restaurant, whose Mediterranean menu is prepared by a Michelin-starred chef.
