The 5 best small hotels Lisbon


Rua Saraiva de
Carvalho 35

This very particular hotel (a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World) has a very particular theme: it is decorated in the style of an old school. It is set in a reconverted palace (that used to house a school) of Campo de Ourique/Estrela and the hotel offers a very calm atmosphere.


Rua Rodrigues
Sampaio, 17
Av. da Liberdade
+351 21 315 5016

The Britânia is housed in a historic building designed by the leading architect of his time, Cassiano Branco. The Art Deco decorative elements dating from 1944 are still very present in the hotel, which exudes an old world charm unmatched in Lisbon. Service is excellent and personal.


Rua das Janelas
Verdes 47

This home-style hotel is set in a beautiful building from the 1800s where famous novelist Eça de Queiroz once lived. The terraced garden and library on the upper floor boast a surprising river view.

+351 21 347 2024

Located in the heart of Chiado, next door to the Trindade Theatre (which gives the hotel its name and its theme), this ‘petit’ hotel has 15 rooms decorated with a great sense of style – a contemporary interpretation of classical iconography one could say. The bar and breakfast room is light an airy, with large windows that open out to the street outside.


Praça Luís de
Camões 2
Chiado ➅
+351 21 340 8288

This hotel, member of the Leading Hotels of the World, was the first of its kind to open its doors in Lisbon, setting the tone for the city’s boutique hotels scene. The 55 rooms give out onto the busy square of Camões, the gateway to Bairro Alto, or to the Tagus river. The terrace is one of the city’s best spots for a drink or a light meal.
