Although it’s officially located in Chiado, it’s named after the neighborhood which lies across the square. It’s a carefully-restored 18th-century building, and now one of Lisbon's most fashionable boutique hotels (the favorite of arty crowds). Different Portuguese designers were invited to create the elegant interior, using original dark wood furniture around classic and contemporary features. The rooftop bar is one of the city’s best spots for a drink, offering a beautiful view. The refined restaurant is known for its inspired contemporary Portuguese cuisine.
Facing the São Pedro de Alcântara viewpoint, this hotel offers a wonderful view from its top floors. There’s a small rooftop bar and restaurant facing the castle, while the beautifully-designed interior is divided into apartments of different sizes. On the ground floor is a café, and there’s also a small spa and gym.
Standing next to the Santa Catarina viewpoint, this 3-star hotel also has one of the best views in town. There are only 13 rooms, plus a rooftop bar and restaurant.
A former printing factory on one of Bairro Alto’s main streets is now a hotel divided into 13 spacious lofts. All of them have a kitchenette, a tasteful design and an industrial style, but feature different pieces of art. Those pieces (paintings, signature furniture, and even classic motorcycles) are part of the owner’s private collection, and were created by local and international artists. Much of what is on display in the lofts and in the common areas is available for purchase.
A renovated palace has kept the original architectural features and provides beautiful dorms and suites. Some have balconies with a view over the São Pedro de Alcântara viewpoint, and on the ground floor is a trendy restaurant. Next door, under the same management, is a rooftop bar and restaurant with more scenic views.
Verride Palace was built in the 1700s, and over the years it was home to several noblemen, until it was bought by investors who turned it into one of Lisbon’s most beautiful and romantic hotels. Located next to one of the city’s most popular viewpoints, just steps from Bairro Alto, the Verride Palácio Santa Catarina Hotel has twelve suites and seven rooms. The tile panels, the woods and the stucco interior were restored, and each space is decorated with contemporary furniture and a few antique pieces. From the windows of the rooms and from one of the two restaurants you have a panoramic view over Lisbon and the river. At the restaurant on the top floor you're served a creative international and Portuguese cuisine, while downstairs you have a more informal atmosphere. At the top is a rooftop bar with a beautiful view, serving cocktails from noon to midnight.
This was Lisbon's first gay hotel, housed in a lovely blue-tiled 18th-century building. It now caters to everyone, with simple but attractive rooms, some of them with balconies.
