Hotel Lisboa Plaza is a hotel in Lisbon in a beautiful Art Nouveau building occupying the space above Cafe; Nicola, in the heart of Rossio. The impressive white fade masks an interior in need of some modernization. Nevertheless, rooms are clean and spacious; some include original 1920s furnishings, and the marble-decorated bathrooms are relatively luxurious. Several of the rooms have balconies, with views of the So Jorge castle and Rossio square. The building also has a poignant history: communist revolutionaries addressed the city from these very windows during the 1974 revolution. Now it’s just a great spot to watch Lisbon go about its business. The hotel bar is pleasant, but older guests intent on sightseeing rarely stop for long. By day rooms can be noisy: that’s the price for being in the thick of the action. Restaurants, bars, cafes and major attractions are within easy walking distance and a constant stream of taxis will ferry guests further afield.
