27 Tv. Merceeiras, Alfama
Located in an ancient courtyard in the city’s historic area of Alfama, Memmo Alfama was one of the first boutique hotels in the area, and is still one of the best hotels in Lisbon. From the cozy living room check-in, to its forty-two rooms with amazing views, every inch of the place is intimate and relaxing. The terrace and pool, which also boast incredible views of the river and surrounding city, is the perfect spot for a glass of wine. Plus, the property is only minutes from downtown, and the famous yellow tram (a great way to explore the city) stops nearby, too.
14 Pátio de Dom Fradique, Alfama
Located inside a 15th-century castle in the historic Alfama District, this boutique hotel is one of Lisbon’s hidden gems. Its eleven private rooms are infused with a sense Portuguese history, decorated with blue and white 17th-century tiles and antiques throughout, with views of the city's rooftops and the Tagus River. Just a 15-minute walk from the main square, it's at once secluded, yet central—an ideal respite for those looking to escape the bustle of the city. Plus, the property itself boasts its own beautiful outdoor café and patio, as well as a private restaurant; a library, ballroom, music room, garden, and pool all round out the experience.
Santa Clara 1728
128 Campo Santa Clara, Alfama
In the center of the city right by the Fiera de Ladra, Lisbon’s flea market, Santa Clara 1728 is a beautiful 18th-century palace that has been transformed into a quiet, romantic sanctuary. Reminiscent of a chic, upscale bed and breakfast, this hotel has six spacious suites and a dining room where the owners (a family who also calls the space home) host delicious dinners open to all guests. Limestone staircases, minimalist wooden furniture, and impressive artwork all complement the beauty of the building itself. Bonus: luxurious, heated bedroom floors, along with views of the Tagus River and National Pantheon.
