10 belles adresses oĂą dormir Ă  Lisbonne

Cultural richness, tasty gastronomy, unique architecture, pleasant weather... Lisbon is the perfect destination for a city break of a few days. Stroll through the picturesque streets, enjoy the splendid views of the city, sit on the terrace to eat and drink a glass of wine... It's good to live there all year round. To make the most of it, here are some ideas for hotels, apartments and retirement places to stay.

1/ Santa Clara 1728

Designed as a real family home, Santa Clara 1728 is a former private mansion renovated by the Portuguese architect Manuel Aires Mateus. The design is contemporary and luxurious (pine floors, pink limestone sinks, refined furniture), without neglecting the historic charm of the place. There is a soft and serene atmosphere in which it is good to immerse yourself after a day wandering the cobbled streets of the capital. The little extra: each room and suite enjoys a lovely view of the Tagus.

2/ Hotel Hotel

This is a hotel designed as a plural space, which creates and nourishes a community through exhibitions and art residencies, immersive dinners, yoga classes, meditation workshops and even live music. The interiors are created by artists and feature fluid spaces without structural separations. The hotel garden, inspired by the neighboring botanical garden, reveals a superb black swimming pool lined with reclaimed tiles from the 1980s, where it is pleasant to take a dip before coming out for dinner.

3/ Patio Do Tijolo

Accessible via a hidden passage, this contemporary hotel opens the doors to a decor inspired by the surrounding atmosphere. On the menu at this address located in the lively Alfama district: 22 modern and sophisticated apartments designed by architect Frederico Valsassina, where the charm of the old coexists with more contemporary details. The large bay windows invite light to the four corners of the rooms, perfect for stocking up on vitamin D.

4/ Montecarmo 12

We discover this charming hotel in a quiet corner a stone's throw from Principe Real street, one of the historic districts of Lisbon. The old building was restored and reinvented by the famous Aires Mateus architectural studio and reveals a mix of local materials – such as limestone and Lioz tiles – and details that evoke the past. Each space has been designed to be welcoming, intimate and serene and extols luxury in simplicity. We fell in love with the period spiral staircase that winds through the hotel.

5/ Hotel Das Amoreiras

This discreet boutique hotel enjoys an exceptional location in the Jardin d'Amoreiras, an insider's address in the heart of Lisbon. The rooms, combining classic and contemporary, have been designed as a peaceful retreat to relax and recharge your batteries.
The owners have transformed this abandoned building into a charming place where noble materials abound, such as velvet, wood and Portuguese marble in the bathrooms. We also like to eat there with a seasonal menu featuring local products.

6/ Memmo Alfama

If you like picturesque atmospheres, you will inevitably fall under the spell of Memmo Alfama. This hotel has managed to blend in perfectly with the environment of the neighborhood with colorful houses weathered by time, where laundry dries in the windows and where traditional shops, cafes and restaurants are teeming. Not to be missed: the famous yellow tram “28” which stops near the hotel and is the ideal way to discover the historical and architectural heritage of Lisbon.

7/ toctoctocLisboa

Nestled between the famous Estrela Garden, the Sao Bento antique dealer street and the charming Praça das Flores, toctoctocLisboa is a secret stop to discover in the heart of the capital. Behind the traditional azulejo facade and flowered balconies hide 10 rooms which surround a warm patio and a small silent garden. A specific identity for each room (hushed Haussmann style, raw industrial or even bohemian chic) ​​where pretty objects gleaned and found during the travels of the owners of the premises are proudly displayed. “Let yourself be carried away, we take care of everything. ", all is said !

8/ Casa Balthazar

Welcome to Casa Balthazar and its spectacular view of Lisbon. Owned by the family of Balthazar Roiz Castanheiro, founder of the famous Confeitaria Nacional, for 5 generations, the establishment reveals a warm, family atmosphere. The carefully crafted decoration of the suites and rooms is a perfect relationship between classic and contemporary. A treasure to discover if you are looking for charm and authenticity.

9/ The Lisbonans

Experience Lisbon like a local by renting one of 15 self-catering apartments designed by The Lisboans in a restored 19th century factory. Located in the historic center of the capital, these accommodations were created in collaboration with Portuguese brands, designers and artists for a unique and cozy style. Featuring carefully selected antiques and hand-woven fabrics, they include a comfortable seating area, a kitchenette and a private bathroom. Some even offer a view of the surrounding area!

10/ AlmaLusa Baixa/Chiado

Much more than a simple boutique hotel, the AlmaLusa Baixa/Chiado is, with its 28 rooms and suites, a living place of Portuguese culture. The address is imbued with the spirit of the city and a charming and informal atmosphere in which you can immerse yourself with pleasure. And to make sure you don't miss any of the Portuguese and Mediterranean cuisine, head to the establishment's restaurant with its gourmet and traditional menu.
