What makes a hotel cool? In coming up with this list of hotels in Lisbon, we considered a heady mix of factors – from definables like design, location, service, amenities, architecture, and value for money, to less tangible elements like ambience or history. Then we factored in what we think Time Out readers would want from a trendy hotel and ended up with this list of the coolest hotels in Lisbon with something for every relaxed aesthetic sense.

Situated slap bang in the centre of Rossio, this boutique hotel gets serious Brownie points for location. It also scores points for its historic lilac facade, wich is the oldest in Lisbon. Inside is a different story, as the Internacional had a modern makeover in 2009, so now all 55 rooms are themed Urban, Feeling, Zen or Pop vibes. There's a bar and restaurant too – Bastardo – which specialises in cocktails and Portuguese grub.
While the Vincci Baixa's 60-odd rooms aren't huge, they're satisfactory and oh-so-comfortable. There's a pillow menu for crying out loud, so every guest can get a perfect night's sleep. But before bedding down for the night, enjoy a Portuguese bite to eat in the onsite Tapas & Friends restaurant (with its beautiful marble arches), before taking advantage of the cocktails mixed up in the Lounge Bar.
