1. Hotel Lis – Baixa

Looking out at Lisbon from Hotel Lis - Baixa. One of the best places to stay in Lisbon.
Looking out at Lisbon from Hotel Lis – Baixa. One of the best places to stay in Lisbon. 

I booked into Hotel Lis – Baixa in Lisbon at the recommendation of a fellow travel blogger.

It’s a four-star hotel which is reasonably priced, clean, tidy and centrally located near Praça do Comércio and the Santa Justa lift.


European hotel rooms are rather small and ours here was no exception.

The two beds in our room were pushed close together and there wasn’t enough additional space for more than one person to have their suitcase open at a time.


It was all we needed. The free wifi also worked perfectly, the room had a fantastic tv and the shower was excellent.

We also enjoyed a free glass of port downstairs in the lobby as a welcome drink on arrival.

What I probably loved the most about Hotel Lis – Baixa was the epic free breakfast which was included in our room rate!

All the items you’d expect in a traditional continental breakfast plus Portuguese Tarts and other pastries and drinks which included bubbly as well as juice and coffee.

It set us up wonderfully before we left for the day and explored Lisbon.

Address: Rua dos Douradores 146, 1100-107 Lisbon

Price: from €90 per room per night

2. Flores Guest House

By: Lauren Chu of The Ridgeline Report

I stayed at Flores Guest House, after a 120km hike along Portugal’s Southwest coast, and could happily celebrate our completion of Portugal’s famous Fishermen’s Trail.

Tucked away in Principe Real:

This neighborhood is one of the best places to stay in Lisbon since it’s known for its trendy shops, parks, and gardens.

And while the check-in office is on a narrow street, across from a romantic parkette, the actual rooms of the guest house are in separate buildings that  seamlessly blending in with the surrounding neighborhood.


A shared rooftop patio enhances the beauty of the small but clean rooms.

Flores Guest House is also a tranquil place that is far away from the commotion of the bar scene.


IThis Lisbon hotel is also close enough to the city center for you to experience the beauty of the lively, surrounding neighborhood, where children, dogs, young couples, and tourists all congregate and add a quaint charm to the neighborhood.

Throughout our stay:

We often spent the cocktail hour in the parkette, sipping on wine and people watching in peace.

Best of all:

A fantastic breakfast is included with your stay!

Each morning, you wake up to a basket of fresh bread, a warm Portuguese egg tart, yogurt, fruit, ham & cheese delivered right to your door.

Breakfast in bed? Yes please!

Address: Travessa Piedade 38B – Praça das Flores, 1200-299 Lisboa, Principe Real

Price: from €110 per room per night

During my first visit to Lisbon:

We stayed 25km along the coast in Estoril, near Cascais.

And while both places make a great home base for Lisbon:

I definitely wanted to stay in Lisbon itself during my next visit.


We couldn’t have asked for a more centrally located accommodation than Hotel Gat Rossio.

Located in Baixa district, near two metro stations, and across the street from Rossio Station:

This hotel has a fantastic, central location and sits in a historic townhouse, along a quaint side street between Praça Rossio and Praça Restauradores.

Once inside the hotel:

You’ll find fantastic rooms that are simple but stylish with bent plywood shelves and quirky lightboxes.

Breakfast is also simple but traditional and delicious, with  pastéis de Nata or bread served with olive oil, tomato, and salt.

One of the standout features of the hotel though is a large terrace, adjacent to the breakfast room, that is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or relax after spending an exciting 3 days in Lisbon.

I’m an old fart and normally hate hostels.

I find them loud and annoying and filled with insane twenty-year-olds who only want to party.

So when I booked a private room at Lisbon Destination Hostel, I was none too excited.

Especially since this hostel is literally IN Rossio Train Station.

But to my utter surprise…

I LOVED my stay here!
