A Hedonist’s guide to…

Lisbon

Tivoli Lisboa
The flagship hotel of Portugal's prestigious Tivoli Group, the Tivoli Lisboa is a delightfully luxurious five-star hotel, located half along the commercial Avenida de Liberdade.
Hotel Real Palacio
Palacio Belmonte
This is quite simply a wonderful hotel. The refurbishment of this 15th Century palace has been completed with such love, care and attention to detail guests are instantly blown away.
Four Seasons Hotel Ritz
The Ritz was dictator Oliveira Salazar's vision. He wanted to create a luxury hotel with which to drag Lisbon's tourist scene to international attention.
Hotel Lisboa Plaza
Built in 1953 and renovated in 2002, the Lisboa Plaza is very much a family hotel, in both senses. The same family have owned and operated the hotel since the outset.
Bairro Alto Hotel
The Bairro Alto is one of Lisbon's newest and most chic hotels. With 5 stars and feted in the international media, expect to stay alongside visiting celebrities and fashionistas.
Farol Design Hotel
A twist on the neo-classical, this hotel caters for the trendy crowd who will appreciate the aesthetics...
Hotel Avenida Palace
With a central location and luxurious premises, the Hotel Avenida Palace has a captive audience and the owners know it! Built in 1892, it has managed to retain its romantic and belle epoque characteristics.
Olissipo Castelo
Located in Baixa, the Olissipo Hotel benefits from a serene atmosphere, ideal for those seeking solace or, alternatively, for a romantic break.
Dom Pedro Palace
The five-star high-rise is part of an Italian and Portuguese chain that caters mainly for business customers. Many rooms have fantastic views of the Tejo, the expansive river sweeping the city.
NH Liberdade
On the side of the Avenida, this offering from the surprisingly upmarket Spanish chain is fitted with a stylish, contemporary look of dark wood and steel fittings, and mini-apartment style rooms.
Sheraton Lisboa
The Sheraton Lisboa forms the hub of corporate travelling in the city due to its substantial conference facilities. Convenient and reliable, it is however unsuited to those seeking a little more relaxation.
Inspira Santa Marta
Earth, wood, metal, fire and water - each of the rooms at this environmentally-friendly boutique hotel are themed around the elements. Feng shui enthusiasts will know exactly what room's best for them.
Lapa Palace
The Lapa Palace has traditionally been regarded as Lisbon's premier hotel. Sitting atop one of the city's seven hills, the views from the magnificent garden and terrace are superb.
Altis Belem
Not for those looking for a cosy hideaway - this is a sleek modernist construction with views over the docks to match. The Altis Belem Hotel has one of the best spas in the city.
Hotel Altis
Five-star hotels are awarded their status for meeting certain criteria, as opposed to being among the highest echelons for service, style and comfort. A bit drab, and mainly for business travellers.
Pestana Palace
Currently regarded as the best hotel in Lisbon, this former 19th-century palace is classified as a national monument. With wonderful views of the Tejo river and a quiet location, this is a must for luxury-lovers.
Vila Gale Opera
One man's fantasy is another man's nightmare; whether the Opera will appeal to you depends on personal taste, but the musical theme is central to this unique hotel.
Hotel Metropole
With a location above one of Lisbon's favourite cafes and looking over one of its prettiest and liveliest squares, the Metropole is in prime position.
The Albatroz Seaside Hotel
Like the hotel's previous owner, one will feel regal in the individually decorated rooms with beautiful Atlantic views....
Palácio Estoril
Opened in 2010, the international spa-brand is the first of its kind in Portugal offering Thai and Asian treatments.
