Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Lisbon

Palácio Ramalhete
Elegant boutique hotel Palácio Ramalhete can be found in the boho neighbourhood of Lapa, offering 12 refined guestrooms and an outdoor pool.
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.
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.
York House
York House is what a boutique hotel should be all about. Instead of chi-chi designer furnishings and Starck bidets the hotel is filled with antique furniture, four-poster beds and an air of tranquility.
Solar do Castelo
Located within the walls of Lisbon's most dominating landmark, the Castelo de Sao Jorge, this unique residence is a recent addition to the Hoteis Heritage Lisboa group.
Hotel Britania
The second of our picks from the Heritage hotel group, the Britania is the only surviving Art Deco hotel in the centre of Lisbon, and the artistic touches are all about the nuances.
As Janelas Verdes
This former 18th-century palace was once the home of Portuguese novelist Eça de Queiros and supposedly the inspiration for his novels O Ramalhete and Os Maias.
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.
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.
Albergaria Senhora
This hilltop pensão, with its deliciously tacky formica floors and pine veneer panels, opened in 1969 and little has changed since. It offers spectacular views of the Tejo.
Heritage Avenida Libertade
This Hotel has not abandoned its heritage, with the old apothecary accessories still adorning the walls in the lobby, but once one reaches the rooms things get decidedly more modern...
Hotel Veneza
The Veneza should be one of those hotels, slightly faded around the edges but packed full of a bygone era charm. Somehow it's not - refurbs have left it lacking. For sleeping only.
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.
Palácio Estoril
Opened in 2010, the international spa-brand is the first of its kind in Portugal offering Thai and Asian treatments.
