The best hotels in Lisbon

11. Pestana CR7 Lisboa

Hotels Baixa Pombalina

Experience a day in the life of Portugal's celebrated footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo. At least that's what the Pestana Group promise with a stay at CR7. It's an odd MO, we'll grant you, but doesn't that sound like fun? Millennials will rejoice – while the older crowd marvels – at the in-room Playstations, smart TVs and yoga mats. There's a sports bar downstairs (of course), plus a foosball table in the lobby and tuk-tuk tours available.

12. Hotel Mundial

Hotels Luxury hotels Santa Maria Maior

A favourite with families and groups thanks to its spacious rooms and free parking, this ’50s is situated at Martim Moniz square. At just a few minutes' walk from the Rossio Square, you'll have easy access to great restaurants, bars and shops. Amenities at the hotel include a breakfast buffet, sushi restaurant and rooftop bar.

13. Hotel da Estrela

4 out of 5 stars
Hotels Lisbon

With a lovely location in the old Palace of the Counts of Paraty, Hotel da Estrela enjoys something many hotels in Lisbon don't: outdoor space. The gardens of this modest luxury stay are beautifully kept, with a circular pond in the centre, and made private by the surrounding trees. There are only 19 rooms here, so exclusivity is the name of the game, and the staff will make you feel just as special.

14. AlmaLusa Baixa/Chiado

3 out of 5 stars
Hotels Santa Maria Maior

AlmaLusa is somewhat a newbie to the Lisbon hotel scene, having only opened in March 2016, but it brings a lot to the table. It's located in an eighteenth-century Pombaline building, but boasts all the mod cons. All 28 rooms offer at least a 42" HD flat-screen, a 4G smartphone, Castelbel toiletries and tea/coffee making facilities. Plus the hotel is only a street away from the Chiado, the Ribeira das Naus and the busy downtown streets.

15. Altis Belém Hotel & Spa

5 out of 5 stars
Hotels Belém

This futuristic white cube on the waterfront is perfectly placed to explore the sights of the area. Belém Tower, the Jerónimos Monastery and the Pastéis de Belém pastry shop are all within walking distance. But you could easily have fill a day without leaving the hotel if you're not careful. Altis Belém has a Michelin-starred restaurant, large bar, swish spa, a pool that overlooks the marina and Nespresso machines in every room.

16. Olissippo Lapa Palace

5 out of 5 stars
Hotels Estrela/Lapa/Santos

For a room with a view, look no further than the Olissippo Lapa Palace. Each suite either faces the Tagus or the hotel's exotic gardens. But regardless of what's outdoors, the inside is also spectacular. Think nineteenth-century manor house with crystal chandeliers, marble bathrooms and polished mahogany dressers. The heated swimming pool in the gym/spa is a real treat, but there's also an outdoor pool if you'd rather bask in the sunshine.

17. Palácio Belmonte

5 out of 5 stars
Hotels Castelo de São Jorge

Some believe it is the world's most beautiful boutique hotel, and we won't say otherwise. Featuring only ten suites each with living and dining rooms, a bedroom and a bathroom, the intimate mood is so valued by the staff you might feel you're at a B&B. All the better for couples in a romantic mood, and for visiting celebrities in search of some peace and quiet. For the full experience, the Bartolomeu de Gusmão suite has three floors and a spiral staircase that once led to a minaret and now is a private space overlooking old Lisbon's rooftops and the Tagus river. Despite lacking a restaurant (there are good alternatives in the vicinities), the hotel won't mind fulfilling the occasional food eccentricity – within reasonable limits.

18. Hotel Tivoli Lisboa

4 out of 5 stars
Hotels Avenida da Liberdade

For more than eight decades in business (the hotel was built in 1933), the Tivoli's group grew and expanded within and outside the city. Its Avenida da Liberdade firstborn remains one the city's classics. Lisbon is not New York but if you had to draw a comparison, you'd say the Tivoli is Lisbon's version of the Big Apple's Plaza when it comes to fame, recognition and location. The Avenida da Liberdade, with its designer shops and international brands such as Cartier, Gucci and Louis Vuitton is not far behind  Manhattan's 5th. In 2016, its Thai owners invested 15 million euros in a total makeover of the rooms and common areas. You don't want to mess with perfection, though: no changes were made to the top floor terrace, proud host of the Sky Bar, one of Lisbon's hippest rooftops, nor to the botanic garden with a swimming pool.

19. The Independente Suites & Terrace

4 out of 5 stars
Hotels Bairro Alto

Many people don't even know that beyond the Decadente and Insólito restaurant/bars there is a hotel both original and lively, one of the few in Lisbon with two very different lodging options: the economic one, with triple bunk beds, and the posh one, with double suites including a terrace facing the São Pedro de Alcântara viewpoint or the castle hill. One of the aims of the Independent Collective brand is to appeal to more than one market segment. What this actually means is a hotel where backpackers and moneyed tourists rub shoulders – but no guests under age 16 are allowed. And it is one of the city's coolest hotels thanks not only to a bold décor but to the charming century-old building.

20. Portugal Boutique Hotel

3 out of 5 stars
Hotels Santa Maria Maior

Inside are 53 rooms in a contemporary style, low on frills but high on comfort, next to the Figueira Square. This is an excellent area of the city, close to the Rossio, the Chiado and the Cathedral, where you can enjoy the best Lisbon has to offer without having to go far. This includes the Deck, a traditional Lisbon patio turned into a café. The Portugal Boutique Hotel also offers other quality alternatives, including access to the bar and two restaurants at the nearby Hotel Mundial. One of these is the Varanda de Lisboa, where traditional Portuguese food is served with a panoramic view to the city and the river.
