With its views over the River Tagus and the winding cobbled streets of one of Lisbon’s oldest districts, the sophisticated Memmo Alfama Hotel offers an unforgettable stay right in the heart of Lisbon.

Memmo Príncipe Real

Rating:

In Lisbon’s most fashionable district, Memmo Príncipe Real is Memmo Alfama’s sister hotel, offering the same five-star luxury on the other side of the city. Cool and cosmopolitan, Príncipe Real is within easy walking distance of most main attractions, and Memmo Príncipe Real will take you on a free walking tour of the neighbourhood to help you settle in. Although its 41 rooms, richly decorated with wooden floors, cosy armchairs, soft rugs and faux-fur throws, will help with settling in, too. Some rooms have balconies, some have terraces and a couple even have their own outdoor fires. For some down time from sightseeing, head up to the heated terrace pool and its panoramic views of the city. Or you could enjoy a meal at the hotel’s Colonial Café with its floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking St Jorge Castle.

Altis Belém Hotel & Spa

Rating:

This strikingly modern and luxurious hotel lies on the banks of the Tagus, just a stone’s throw from the medieval Torré de Belem. Altis Belém Hotel & Spa’s rooms reflect the rich history of the hotel’s location, with décor inspired by the exotic locations and cultures of some of the country’s former overseas colonies. All its suites have balconies, and the Presidential Suite has its own jacuzzi overlooking the river. One of the many highlights of the stunning Altis Belém is its B Spa, with hydrotherapy, oxygen treatments, Turkish baths and an indoor pool to help you relax. For your evening meal, chose between the Oyster and Sushi Bar, the Café Mensagem, Bar 38 ⁰41’ or Michelin-starred Restaurant Feitoria – or just go for a different one each meal.

 Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon

Rating:

In 1959, the grand Four Seasons Hotel in Lisbon was designed to boost the city’s prestige and its budding hotel industry. It definitely succeeded, and it’s still widely thought of as Lisbon’s finest hotel – a with good reason. For starters, being so near Avenida da Liberdade puts it firmly within walking distance of the must-see Gulbenkian gallery and gives it almost unrivalled views over Edward VII Park. As you’d expect, the Four Seasons décor is effortlessly elegant, but it also has an impressive art collection that you can learn more about on a free app. Or could you switch off in the spa with four treatment rooms, a sauna, marble steam rooms and an indoor pool overlooking the gardens. Then enjoy a meal served on the terrace at the Varanda Restaurant or watch fresh sushi being prepared at the Ritz Bar. With this level of decadence and style, its unsurprising that the Four Seasons is our most expensive pick, but it’s worth paying for if you want a top-level hotel experience right in the heart of Lisbon.
