Tivoli Avenida da Liberdade Lisboa
Located on Lisbon’s ritziest street, the recently renovated Tivoli Avenida da Liberdade Lisboa is the ideal home base for those looking for easy access to both traditional and modern Lisbon. Set within a historic building, the 285-room property features a sleek rooftop restaurant from Porto-based star chef Rui Paula and a brand-new Biologique Recherche spa—holding its title as one of the city’s longest-serving grand dames with aplomb.
Perched above one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, the luxe Palacio Belmonte is a favorite of those looking to hide away in style. The property dates back to 1449, when it served as the residence of a noble family looking to be as close as possible to the royals that called nearby Castelo São Jorge home. Today, it features 10 individually designed suites, a chic garden and pool overlooking the Tagus River, and thousands of picture-perfect 18th-century, blue-and-white Portuguese tiles.
Pousada de Lisboa
The cheery, lemon-yellow buildings that border the Praça do Comécio are home to the exclusive Pousada de Lisboa, a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Once used for state functions, the 90-room property now boasts interiors that mix modern amenities with original architectural elements like ornate carved windows and domed brick ceilings.
Named for the lively, restaurant- and nightlife-filled neighborhood it resides in, Barrio Alto Hotel, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, is a favorite of the fashion set touching down in Lisbon for quick weekend getaways from London, Paris, and Milan. The beloved property is currently closed for a top-to-bottom renovation, but when it reopens later this year, you can bet that it will be one of the chicest hotels in the city.
